Danger of Addiction
Addiction is usually addressed in terms of psychological and physiological addiction. Alcohol and drug abuse can result in addictions of each kind, and there are dangerous consequences of use regardless of how often or how much is abused. Physical dependence, also referred to as physiological dependence, is the body’s adjustment to a substance by incorporating it into ‘normal’ bodily functions. For example, natural “feel good” endorphins secreted by the brain are stopped when an addict uses oxycodone. The brain senses the presence of a similar chemical and shuts off endorphin production. When the user stops abusing oxycodone, they go through withdrawal and develop a psychological dependence as they feel a need for the drug that replaces the endorphins. Addicts can become psychologically dependent on activities, such as shopping, gambling, and self-harm. It is possible for addicts to become psychologically and physiologically addicted to a substance or many substances at once.

Our trained professionals also strive to determine the deep-seeded psychological causes for addiction, helping their clients avoid circumstances, people and temptations that can act as triggers to their substance abuse.
Customized Treatments for Addiction
At ABT, we know the most effective treatment programs are to customize them to the individual client. Each rehab treatment is different, and each client has a different psychological temperament. Our rehab specialists diagnose and analyze the addiction, any psychological issues, and other personal situations of each client to facilitate the most effective rehab program. One of these effective therapies is cognitive-behavioral therapy, which is treatment that helps clients become aware of, and avoid people and conditions that lead to relapse. Family therapy focuses on bettering family relationships to aid the recovery process. Additional motivational incentives exist throughout rehab to modify their setting and social circles which support resisting relapse.
