Understanding Drug Addiction
In a the body of a drug addict, regular physiological processes, such as eating or sex, that are normally rewarding are often bypassed for the more intense response elicited by use of the drug to which the person is addicted. As the brain acclimates to the changes brought about by introducing an addictive substance into its normal functioning, the drug becomes necessary to maintain the new level of homeostasis. If the drug isn’t taken, uncomfortable or even dangerous withdrawal symptoms follow, along with cravings so intense that the use is inevitably resumed.
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. Contact us today!
