Understanding When to Seek Treatment for Drug Addiction
While the road to drug addiction often begins with the voluntary act of taking drugs, it’s important not to minimize substance abuses’ control over an individual’s decision making. With frequent substance abuse, the ability to choose not to use becomes compromised; seeking and consuming the drug becomes compulsive, and over time physical dependence will take over the ability to choose at all. Addiction will persist in the face of devastating consequences and even despite an addict’s desire to stop. This is largely a result of the effects of prolonged exposure to a substance on the brain and body. Scientific research shows that drug addiction treatment can help addicts stop using, avoid relapse, and successfully recover their lives. Achieving sobriety requires the desire and determination to get clean, and to develop the necessary tools in recovery to manage addiction after leaving treatment. If you’re looking for help, or wanting to help a loved one or a friend, understand that having an honest desire to quit and openness to receiving help to do so are fundamental.
Our Drug Addiction Treatment Center
Addiction is a disease of the brain that affects multiple neurotransmitters, including those involved in learning and memory, reward and motivation, and inhibitory control over behavior. Because drug and alcohol abuse disrupts so many aspects of an individual’s life, treatment for drug addiction must incorporate many components, each directed to a particular aspect of the illness. Addiction is a chronic disease and individuals cannot simply stop using drugs, it’s also not recommended for someone struggling with a physical dependence to detox on their own, as the risks involved are severe. The purpose of treatment is to help the individual stop using drugs, maintain a drug-free lifestyle, and achieve positive cooperation in the family, at work, and in society. Our professionals are highly educated, and have extensive experience in substance abuse treatment. Our multi-disciplinary treatment team provides each individual with a treatment team that specialize on a different aspect of their recovery, ensuring the tools necessary to a life free of drugs and alcohol.
