Overcoming addiction can feel like a battle, but thankfully, it’s a war that nobody needs to wage alone.
At Reflections Recovery Rehab Center, we understand the value of educating people about addiction. This is why we’ve made the following resources available to our clients, their families and anyone who wants to learn more about the dangers of addiction and how substance abuse problems are treated. Use this as a starting point to learn about alcohol and drug abuse.
This resources portal also provides more information about how we support our alumni after they’ve completed residential treatment. Here are all of the free resources we have to offer you:
When it comes to treating addiction, most rehab facilities offer two different types of modalities: Clinical and Holistic. Reflections is no different, as we believe in both time-tested and cutting-edge techniques to help clients recover from addiction. Clinical therapy encompasses a long list of psychotherapy techniques, while holistic treatment is another term for complementary or alternative medicine.
Treating the medical condition known as addiction becomes even more difficult when a patient has also been diagnosed with a co-occurring mental health disorder, such as depression or schizophrenia. These individuals, commonly known as dual diagnosis patients, require specialized care as they start their walk down the road to recovery. Our mental health resources provide details on the disorders most likely to accompany addiction.
Each type of drug comes with its own list of short- and long-term effects, as well as withdrawal symptoms. It helps to study up on different drugs – both the illegal and the prescription ones – especially if you have a loved one who may be using one of these substances. Understand what somebody is facing when they start taking one or of these risky substances.
