Repeated use of alcohol or other drugs changes the brain’s chemistry and structure. Treatment is based on the latest advances in brain science. The primary goal of treatment is to establish recovery. Recovery heals the brain over time.
Getting and staying sober can be difficult. Whether the problem is alcohol, prescription medications or street drugs, most people who attempt recovery end up relapsing. However, lasting recovery is possible. Treatment works best when driven by experienced clinical experts, bringing together the individual and family to develop a speci c care plan.
