Approaches to addiction treatment

A few years ago, I was totally shocked to hear my favorite talk radio host confess to being addicted to prescription drugs. That made me think that an addiction is indeed a disease and that it could happen to the best of us.

Fortunately, anyone can help himself overcome his addiction by going for an addiction treatment. One does not necessarily have to enter a residential rehab center for help with drug addiction, alcohol addiction or prescription drugs addiction. There are outpatient drug rehab centers that one can go to for treatments for all kinds of addictions, including eating disorder treatment.

These days rehab centers often include multi-faceted approaches to treatment like holistic healing. They recognize that people with addictions respond better to drug or alcohol treatments when they have found the proper balance between mind, body and spirit.

I think, at the end of the day, it is up to the individual with the addiction to decide what he thinks is the best for him and what works for him when it comes to treating his addiction.

    Recognize that each resident is unique and each type of treatment is different -- the best treatment for one resident may not be right for another. So you can rest assured that the treatment recommended at Mountainside will be the best one for each resident. And while we are best known for our innovative and comprehensive treatment approach, we take particular pride in the compassion and dedication of our counselors and other healthcare staff.
