What We Treat
At The Sober Spot Recovery Center, we recognize that addiction comes in many different forms. We treat both adult men and women who are suffering from substance abuse of any sort and or have a mental illness. When choosing the right treatment center, it is extremely important to get expert care from a staff that is designed to treat patients with your addiction of choice. Here are the addictions we treat at The Sober Spot Recovery Center:
What may seem to start as a voluntary harmless act of occasionally using drugs, in time can develop into a compulsive and unstoppable habit. In the beginning, drug use minimizes emotional and physical pain. As prolonged drug use continues, it can develop into drug addiction, severely impacting a person’s brain chemistry. When the brain starts to signal an intense physical need, to continue the use of drugs, what once was recreational use soon becomes an urge that controls one’s life.
Left untreated, drug addiction can result in diminished health, job loss, and broken relationships. Although drugs may offer short – term relief, extended drug use only aggravates an addict’s problems, since the root causes of the pain or issues were never addressed.
Drug addiction can lead to a number of physical and mental disorders. Untreated, unrestrained drug use will persist despite its overwhelming and often demoralizing consequences on both the person and their families. When an addict gets to the point of being tired of being sick and tired, then they will ask for help. Call us today if you or your loved one need help with drug addiction.
Alcoholism or alcohol addiction is defined as the obsessive and unmanageable use of alcohol, regardless of the negative impact on the drinker’s fitness, profession and or relationships. Those suffering from alcohol addiction will frequently drink to excess, leaving their bodies dependent on the substance and their lives in a shambles.
Alcoholics will experience symptoms of alcohol withdrawal that include:
high blood pressure
In order to maintain a state of false normality, the alcoholic will continue their addiction to avoid and escape the pain in their lives or the effects of withdrawal.
Alcoholism can cause a person to drink to the point of experiencing complete memory loss for hours at a time or even days, and can increase the likelihood of high risk behaviors such as drinking and driving. Over long term alcohol addiction, emotions, relationships and entire lives can be destroyed.
Alcohol Abuse is the 2nd leading cause of dementia contributing to 10% of diagnosed cases. Extreme alcoholism, untreated, can be harmful to brain function, leaving permanent damage. In addition, a variety of mental health problems can be caused by alcohol abuse. Persons addicted to alcohol may suffer from some form of severe psychiatric trauma, marked by increased anxiety, feelings of hopelessness, alcohol induced psychosis, panic disorders and other symptoms.
The relationship between substance abuse and mental disorders is nothing short of complex. Often times, the addict will begin to self medicate for the mental illness by abusing substances. Thus, resulting in a whirlwind of negative consequences, when in all actuality, had they treated the mental illness effectively with help from an expert or professional, they could have possibly avoided the drug addiction all together.
Clients who enter treatment facilities without a dual diagnosis program will frequently come into treatment admitting to drug abuse issues to avoid mental health issues, and after putting together 2 or 3 months of sobriety, they will drop out of treatment, without ever receiving, nor even requesting the mental health help they need. Or maybe the client didn’t perceive their diagnosis of “borderline personality disorder” deemed as socially accepted like drug and alcohol addiction is, so they rejected it, and attempted to only treat the addiction problem. Whatever the reason, mental health issues are extremely crucial to evaluate and examine during the treatment process.
In our dual diagnosis program, we include elements which address each illness, and deal with the symptoms and their severity that arise during recovery.
It’s important to further understand that you or your loved one may not even be aware of the co-occurring disorder. The fact that you or he or she has not been diagnosed with a mental illness doesn’t mean there isn’t an underlying condition that could be intensifying the dependency on substances. Often times, the symptoms of the two mirror each other.
