Perils of Addiction
Addiction is generally addressed in psychological and physiological terms. Alcohol and drug use may result in addictions of each type, and there are perilous consequences of each, regardless of the quantity and frequency of abuse. Physical dependence, also known as physiological dependence, is the body’s reaction to a substance by assimilating the toxin in to ‘normal’ body functions. For example, “feel good” endorphins released by the brain are halted after a limited amount of oxycodone use, even when used for legitimate conditions. The chemicals in oxycodone confuse the brain into thinking the endorphin levels are sustained, and the brain directs production of endorphins. When oxycodone use stops, there is an absence of endorphins, so the patient/user goes through a withdrawal and develops a physical and psychological need for the drug. Addicts can also become psychologically dependent on non-substance abuse activities, such as gambling, shopping, and self-harm. It’s also possible to become psychologically and physiologically addicted to more than one substance at a time.

Customized Addiction Treatments
At ABT, we have found over time that the most effective treatment is customized to the individual. Each therapy treatment is different. They vary in scope, duration, and depend on the substance and psychological temperament of the client. Our treatment specialists diagnose the addiction, and assess any psychological issues and other personal circumstances of every client, to facilitate the most effective treatment and create the most successful plan to recovery. As an example, one of these effective therapies is cognitive-behavioral treatment. A treatment that ensures and awareness of people and conditions that lead to use and relapse. Family therapy is aimed at improving relationships among the family members of the addict, to aid in the recovery process. Other motivational incentives are here to help throughout rehab to support the temptation to relapse, such as modifying the environment and social circles.
