Treatment for Addiction at A Better Today
Centering in the brain, the disease of addiction affects chemicals like dopamine and glutamate and their neurotransmitters. Dopamine releases a feeling of euphoria while glutamate stores the feeling so the addict always remembers how good it felt making it extremely hard to overcome the desire to use. The body becomes very familiar and comfortable with the levels of dopamine that are a result of drug/alcohol use and it makes it very easy to return to using. One must stop using in order to begin recovery and that may seem an impossible thing to do. Intense cravings begin once an addict has stopped using because the brain wants another release of dopamine. The obsession that follows is a result of the stored memory from the glutamate. Our focus here at A Better Today is to remove the chemicals and toxins from the addicted person during what we call a stabilization period which includes a supervised medical detox. Following stabilization the addicted one moves into the next phase of treatment which includes intensive therapies providing skills and various ways of coping rather than using substances. If left untreated addiction can be a fatal illness and destroys families and the individuals life. Get help for you or an addicted loved one now with A Better Today.
