Just as muscles need to be re-trained and joints and tendons have to learn the mechanics of movements, the brain, mind and heart have to re-discover how to live without depending on drugs and alcohol.
(PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Best Drug Rehabilitation, a leading treatment facility that implements structured and planned regiment of care that is geared to the personalized needs of each client, has launched a powerful new video that highlights the facility’s groundbreaking 6-week “Understanding Addictions” series.
In the video, Best Drug Rehabilitation’s Addictions Counselor Elaine Martin discusses how the Understanding Addictions series teaches clients about how the brain reacts and responds to addiction, and how clients can essentially re-train their brain to think in new and better ways. Clients also learn that re-training the brain and transitioning into an addiction-free life requires patience, and as such, they’re educated on how to handle the often difficult and uphill road ahead, one day at a time.
Furthermore, clients who participate in the Understanding Addictions series are given tools and research to reflect upon their previous decisions, and grasp those that directly and indirectly led them towards negative situations and, eventually, to alcohol or drug abuse. And throughout the series, clients are encouraged in a blame and judgement-free environment to ask questions, share ideas, and work both individually and as a group to heal and choose a better life path.
“What many people outside the world of addiction treatment fail to grasp, is that breaking free of addiction is much more than cutting off access to drugs and alcohol,” commented Per Wickstrom, Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO. “I can personally attest to the fact that people need to, essentially, re-build how they think and especially how they make decisions. In many ways, it’s like learning how to walk again after a traumatic injury. Just as muscles need to be re-trained and joints and tendons have to learn the mechanics of movements, the brain, mind and heart have to re-discover how to live without depending on drugs and alcohol -- and what’s more, to live a life of happiness and joy, not of regret and loss, regardless of what may have happened in the past. At Best Drug Rehabilitation, we reflect on the past only as a way to build a better future. What matters is tomorrow -- not yesterday.”
