Understanding Drug Addiction
Drug addiction is a chronic disease characterized by compulsive, or uncontrollable, drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences and changes in the brain, which can be long lasting. Drug addiction is also a relapsing disease. The path to drug addiction begins with the voluntary act of taking drugs. When you’re struggling with drug addiction, sobriety can seem like an impossible goal.
The Path to Recovery
Our approach to drug addiction treatment is holistic and personalized to treat a person’s mind, body and spirit. We design a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan for every drug rehab patient. After assembling an appropriate treatment plan, each patient is assigned a treatment team, consisting of licensed, credentialed, and dedicated professionals, many of whom have experienced recovery in their own lives. Each team includes a primary therapist, family therapist, psychiatrist, medical doctor, nurse, and, if necessary, drug and alcohol detox specialists. When you’re struggling with drug addiction, sobriety can seem like an impossible goal. Drug abuse often stems from misguided attempts to manage stress. Many people turn to alcohol or drugs to relax and unwind after a stressful event, or to cover up painful memories and emotions, but there are healthier ways to keep your stress level in check.
We offer a wide range of treatment options for drug addiction. Inpatient addiction treatment comes in slightly different structures and intensities depending upon an individual’s particular situation, but an abstinence-based, Twelve Step approach utilizing evidence-based practices is core to all programs. For those unable to commit to an in-patient course of care, we also offer a variety of outpatient treatment programs that enable patients to take care of their work, family, or other responsibilities during treatment. Plus, outpatient treatment is in-network for many insurance providers, making it a readily accessible rehab option. Medications are available for treatment of opioid (heroin, prescription pain relievers), tobacco (nicotine), and alcohol addiction. People who use more than one drug, which is very common, need treatment for all of the substances they use. Patients who do not receive any further treatment after detoxification usually resume their drug use. One study of treatment facilities found that medications were used in almost 80 percent of detoxification. Contact us today!
