Reviews at a Glance
- Relational & Family Therapy Support
Alcohol and drug addiction research suggests that appropriate family involvement and support is a critical component for long-term drug and alcohol rehabilitation. As part of the addiction recovery process, Enterhealth offers individualized family therapy sessions as well as educational support for families in a group setting. Clients and family members are taught to rebuild and establish healthy relationships by learning how to assertively communicate feelings and needs. This allows clients and families to develop a connection with others, creating a strong support system for their drug or alcohol addiction recovery and lifelong sobriety.
- Addiction disease model
The addiction disease model defines drug and alcohol addiction as a unique, irreversible and progressive disease that cannot be cured, but can be arrested through abstinence. There is evidence that, in certain individuals, each incidence of substance abuse chemically alters the brain causing them to become dependent upon the substance. The disease model demonstrates a progressive process where, over time, addicts experience powerful cravings and when they don't respond quickly enough, strong and sometimes deadly withdrawal symptoms occur. Continued use can also result in irreversible damage to the brain, liver, kidneys and other vital organs.
