Addiction is a complicated condition. For decades people have been attempting to understand the ins and outs of substance abuse and dependence. How does it develop? Why are some people more at risk than others? How can addiction be effectively treated? People who struggle with addiction can’t simply take a pill to reverse the symptoms of their malady; they can’t undergo a surgical procedure or merely start eating better and exercising more. Addiction is a chronic and relapsing disorder that exists in the brain. It is a disorder that can be effectively treated, but never entirely cured.
At Pine Tree Recovery Center we take the disease model of addiction into careful account, treating substance abuse and dependence medically, with a variety of evidence-based modalities including intensive behavioral therapy, medication assisted treatment and holistic approaches to healing. Because addiction affects people in a variety of ways, an extremely individualized approach to recovery is the most beneficial. We offer in-depth addiction assessments to each of our clients upon admission to our medical detox program, allowing our clinical team to develop personalized treatment plans as well as unique, individualized plans for continuing care. We focus on more than a safe and pain-free drug and alcohol withdrawal. We focus on providing each of our clients with a solid and lasting foundation for prolonged sobriety.
