Let our inpatient drug rehab staff help you to understand drug addiction and recovery!

Avatar’s qualified staff has a solid understanding of drug addiction and recovery. We recognize that addiction is a recurring disease that affects an individual’s physical and intellectual abilities. Controlling the habit of frequently consuming drugs or alcohol due to the discomfort caused by its absence can be extremely difficult. Agreeing that you or someone you love has a drug or alcohol addiction is imperative before initiating the detox treatment.

Understanding Drug Addiction: A Neuropsychological Perspective

Out of all the body organs, the brain is our most important organ and the first organ impacted by prolonged substance abuse. Drugs interfere with the way neurotransmitters process, release signals within the brain, and the chemicals the brain produces and releases, such as dopamine, which induces pleasurable activities.

The over-usage of drugs results in the lowered natural production of the chemical, causing an individual to develop a strong desire for consuming more drugs. Behavioral changes can also occur because of the substance on the brain. Attempts to stop using the drugs may cause the individual to have increased cravings or feel ill from withdrawal.

At Avatar Drugs and Alcohol Recovery Center, our major drug rehab and specialized therapy center, we adopted a new approach for understanding drug addiction and recovery to attain sustainable recovery. We recognize the importance of examining everyone on a case-by-case basis to develop the best possible treatment plan to overcome substance abuse.

Major Reasons for Drug & Alcohol Addiction

When you start using drugs, you never plan to become addicted to drugs. Some users might try a substance due to peer pressure or curiosity; others may feel it will relieve their stress or begin a medical procedure. Kids raised in an environment where drugs and alcohol are present are also more likely to become substance abusers. It’s a slippery slope between the occasional user and becoming the addict. Denial plays a massive role in continuing addiction. Everyone believes that they have control over the habit. Still, the drugs have already begun to alter their moods, chemically alter the composition of their bodies and begin to wreak havoc on their lives. It is imperative to understand drug addiction and recovery. We all know recovery is not something that occurs overnight; it takes time and is something an addict must work on every day. Most users have been experiencing drug addiction alone because the habit can be very isolating; however, we can help them recover.

Understanding the prime contributory factors that cause drug or alcohol addiction is essential. As with mental health disorders, several factors contribute to drug and alcohol addiction.The Bio-Psycho-Social-Spiritual Model of addiction can be based on:

  1. Genetics of the Individual, the role of Family history
  2. Stress
  3. Peer pressure

    Understanding drug addiction and recovery impacts everyone surrounding the addict. Supporting recovery means obtaining mental health and addiction services, and understanding drug addiction and healing take time. With evidence funded by SAMHSA, the process of recovery is supported through relationships and social networks. They require a safe community to recover within; part of that will be received within our facility. Still, the other part comes from their interaction from their family and peers outside of our facility.

    An addict in the recovery process relies on the support of peers and family as they conquer the battle with addiction. We offer family sessions to face the stress, guilt, shame, anger, or fears the patient may need to meet to proceed on their journey through recovery. Recovery also involves setbacks; an addict relies on their family and peers’ support as they work through these setbacks and embrace continual personal growth and physical wellness.

    Our use of daily schedules and classes helps the addict develop a sense of purpose, skills they will use once they are inactive recovery that will allow them to understand addiction and recovery to maintain long-term sobriety fully.
