Drug addiction is a complex disease that affects all aspects of an individual. It affects the brain and manifests in an inability to stop using a particular drug (such as alcohol, nicotine, or a narcotic) even as it causes physical damage to the body and emotional damage in one's relationships. Without treatment, drug addiction causes progressively worse devastation that is both chronic and potentially fatal. Obviously, obtaining treatment for drug addiction is key, and Bluegrass has different ways to help those affected by this disease.
Drug Addiction Recovery
Recovery requires a combination of support and treatment designed to address each individual's particular situation. Those affected by drug addiction need help developing recovery skills, which can be obtained through different types of therapy (individual or group). These skills help minimize the risk of relapse and also provide ways to halt a relapse in favor of a healthier recovery path option. Our treatment options are administered by professionals and tailored to the needs of the individual for maximum benefit.
Peer Support for Drug Addiction
One of the ways Bluegrass assists patients is by providing access to Peer Support Specialists, who are individuals in recovery that offer counseling assistance to others who are now trying to get sober. While the path to recovery is unique for each patient, peer support is often very effective in providing the consistent backing required to maintain sobriety in the face of addiction and substance use.
Drug Addiction Treatment Programs
Bluegrass offers a variety of options when it comes to treatment programs for drug addiction, from adolescent services to pregnancy services. They can be used singularly or can be combined, depending on the circumstances.
