In the preface of the 2012 update of “The Principles of Drug Addiction Treatment” (multiple authors), issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Dr. Nora Volkow, Institute Director, explains why many of the loved ones of clients at The Hills have trouble understanding how an otherwise intelligent human being could succumb to addiction and need drug treatment.
“Addiction affects multiple brain circuits, including those involved in reward and motivation, learning and memory, and inhibitory control over behavior. That is why addiction is a brain disease. Some individuals are more vulnerable than others to becoming addicted, depending on the interplay between genetic makeup, age of exposure to drugs, and other environmental influences. While a person initially chooses to take drugs, over time the effects of prolonged exposure on brain functioning compromise that ability to choose, and seeking and consuming the drug become compulsive, often eluding a person’s self-control or willpower.”
Drug Treatment Approach at The Hills Rehabilitation Facility
The updated report goes on to highlight the most effective treatment protocols which we are pleased to report are fully understood and embraced here at The Hills drug rehab facility.
In particular, the study reports that, “No single treatment is appropriate for everyone.” This is something that we’ve known since our inception. Unlike other drug treatment centers, The Hills conducts a thorough interview and assessment to help us develop a customized treatment program that is best suited to you or your loved one.
On this, the report reads, “Treatment varies depending on the type of drug and the characteristics of the patients. Matching treatment settings, interventions, and services to an individual’s particular problems and needs is critical to his or her ultimate success in returning to productive functioning in the family, workplace, and society.”
This approach is a hallmark of the treatment. We know that people come from different socioeconomic backgrounds which can influence their attitude toward inpatient drug rehab. And we know that within similar socioeconomic backgrounds there can be a wide disparity between upbringings which can also affect the approach to treatment.
At The Hills, we take our treatments personally.
