There are hundreds of recovery centers and treatment options available, most of which adhere to a conventional behavioral counseling model that has been in place for 60 years
Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) February 16, 2009
Natural Horizons Wellness Center, an integrated medical and wellness facility in Fairfax, Virginia recently launched Horizons of Hope, a unique and full-scale substance abuse treatment program located 20 miles outside Washington, DC. Horizons of Hope utilizes the best of traditional and alternative therapies in the treatment of chemical dependency, combined into a protocol that facilitates biological, psychological and social healing from the damage done by substance abuse.
Horizons of Hope's highly effective substance abuse treatment program goes well beyond the traditional "talk therapy" counseling model. This program combines a full-body medical approach, which incorporates science-based treatments and protocols with high-level counseling in order to achieve the most effective outcome possible for Horizons of Hope's patients. Studies have shown that programs utilizing a complete integrative approach to treatment have success rates as high as 80%.
"There are hundreds of recovery centers and treatment options available, most of which adhere to a conventional behavioral counseling model that has been in place for 60 years," says J. Shaw Jones, Director of the Horizons of Hope program. "While this method alone can work for some people, the majority of patients relapse within their first year after treatment."
Horizon of Hope's dynamic recovery program is medically based with a strong focus on achieving complete biologic repair. Based on volumes of documented scientific evidence and personal experience, Horizons of Hope recognizes that all addiction is a disorder of the brain involving brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, which play a significant role in the pleasure/reward system of the brain. Thus, recovery needs to include healing of the brain. The program includes many therapies and protocols proven to successfully thwart addiction and help people get their lives back on track, including:
- Detailed Diagnostic Assessments
- IV Therapy/Oral Supplementation
- Nutrition and Lifestyle Counseling and Management
- Neurofeedback/ Neurotherapy
- Adjunctive Therapies
Horizons of Hope was born out of a desire to help the nearly 22.6 million people over the age of 12 that suffer from substance abuse or dependence (according to to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's Office of Applied Studies). Natural Horizons Wellness Center spent years researching various substance abuse programs, treatments and protocols throughout the country to create this revolutionary new program.
