Addiction Therapy Basics

The term recovery means to regain that which was lost. Our goal at Adjustments Family Services is to help you to restore your life and make it better than ever. Beyond the physical problems of addiction lies a great deal of other issues that addiction therapy endeavors to treat. Addiction is actually threefold in that it affects the individual biologically, psychologically, and sociologically. To put it technically, addiction is the problem of a brain that skews the pleasure-reward circuit, leaving the individual that is suffering from addiction seeking more and more fulfillment by means of drug and alcohol abuse in order to attain a sense of equilibrium that has been altered. Addiction therapy treats more than just the physical symptoms and delves deeper into attaining an understanding of the underlying causes of addiction within each individual. The end goal of doing this is to achieve long-term recovery and prevent relapse.

If you are currently struggling with issues that you suspect may be related to misuse of drugs and alcohol, Adjustments Family Services is here to help.
