In an upcoming episode of Advancements with Ted Danson, the series will focus on recent developments taking place in addiction treatment. This episode is scheduled to broadcast 2nd QTR, 2019 via CNBC. Check your local listings for more information.

This segment will shine a light on Unity Behavioral Health (Unity), a leading drug and alcohol rehabilitation center specializing in holistic and dual diagnosis addiction treatment.

“The definition of addiction has evolved to be defined by the American Society of Addiction Medicine as a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors,” said Jason T. Ackner, CEO of Unity Behavioral Health. “Neuro Behavioral Science has progressed to meet that definition. While CBT, DBT, AA/NA are all helpful tools, you still have a dysregulated brain. Neuro Behavioral Therapy enhances the treatment process by helping to re-regulate the brain’s reward system and allow the patient to maximize the benefits of the treatment process.”

The show will explore Unity’s variety of comprehensive programs, which are designed to treat addiction and co-occurring mood disorders, along with medical health issues.

“Employing successful, proven, evidence-based treatment modalities along with cutting-edge holistic therapies, Unity Behavioral Health is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of individuals battling addiction,” said Rochelle Hyman, senior producer for the Advancements series.
