Addiction Treatment Programs
When an individual is living with drug addiction, it doesn’t just affect that person. It also detrimentally impacts communities and families involved. Substances, whether it be drugs or alcohol, harm more than just the person using them — they also create wedges between friends and family members.
As the cycle of addiction continues, it becomes more apparent that the person living with addiction needs professional care.
That’s why addiction treatment programs at Promises Brazos Valley work to help heal those caught in the web of drug or alcohol dependence.
At Promises Brazos Valley in College Station, you will find the right level of care for your needs. Our residential addiction treatment programs provide structure for severe addictions, while outpatient program options allow you to continue meeting work and school obligations.
Understanding the Cycle of Addiction
Most people don’t fully understand how addiction works. Often, we see people who say addiction just ‘happens.’ Or they view addiction as a consequence of individual choices. However, addiction is a cycle that occurs as a response to the body’s response to drugs. Of course, it can start with a choice. But once you start using drugs or alcohol, the body responds and becomes dependent on those substances.
The brain’s first response to a controlled or illegal substance is a happy or relaxed feeling. Some substances give people a euphoric feeling, while others make people feel calm and relaxed. Next, your tolerance for these effects of drugs or alcohol rises, meaning you need more to get the same feeling. As you use more, it causes the body to become reliant on the substance to feel “normal.” When you attempt to stop, withdrawal symptoms occur, such as:
- Stomach upset
- Flu-like symptoms
To manage withdrawal symptoms, those struggling with drug and alcohol abuse should seek help through addiction treatment programs and safe, medically monitored detox.
Addiction as a Disease
Addiction is often viewed as a personal failure. Many people feel that people using drugs or alcohol should simply try harder and quit on their own. On the contrary, drug and alcohol addiction changes the brain. A person experiencing substance use disorders can’t simply stop. Substances work on the brain’s natural chemicals, either enhancing or suppressing them. Over time, the brain doesn’t function as it’s supposed to anymore. Your brain and body come to rely on the unnatural chemicals from drugs or alcohol to feel normal.
