Aid in Recovery released a statement today commenting on the recent death of Academy Award winning actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
According to a report from KARE11 (Hoffman's death sheds light on opiate addiction epidemic, 2/2/2014). Hoffman was found dead by police in his Manhattan apartment after an apparent overdose of heroin.
“The death of Philip Seymour Hoffman is tragic beyond words,” said Dr. Michael Lukens, Psychologist at Aid in Recovery. “Our sincere condolences go out to his family and friends.”
According to the report, Hoffman had suffered from drug and alcohol addiction during his early adulthood, but enjoyed a long clean period before his untimely death.
“There is no silver lining here, but if we can take one thing away from Mr. Hoffman’s death, it is the spotlight that now shines on the epidemic of opiate addiction that is plaguing the nation,” said Dr. Michael Lukens. “Drug addiction is an incredibly challenging disease to combat, which is why there is a constant need for new research and treatment tools.”
Aid in Recovery prides itself in staying abreast of all of the latest research and development trends related to the psychology of addiction.
“There is still so much we don’t know about the brain, which holds the key to unlocking the root causes of addictive behavior,” said Dr. Michael Lukens. “Addiction is a lifelong struggle for those in recovery, but through diligent research, proactive treatment, and a strong foundation of positive reinforcement from family, friends and support groups, negative outcomes like overdoses can be avoided.”
Aid in Recovery is a premier drug and alcohol treatment center. Our approach is defined by recognizing each clients need for a personalized drug and alcohol treatment program. We aren't a hospital-like institution and there’s a good reason for that. We believe that treating each client as an individual is crucial to delivering the best possible patient care. At a busy clinic-like program, it simply isn't possible for a therapist to truly get to know each client and understand their specific needs. To best meet the needs of each patient we treat, we offer a diverse curriculum with a focus on both mind and body designed to meet the individual. We treat every patient as an individual and we work with one patient at a time and guide them to a new life in recovery.
