Breaking through the stigma

What is Drug & Alcohol Addiction?

First of all, addiction is a disease. It is an illness that takes root in someone’s brain and will not let go. For those who might not know, addiction develops when someone’s brain is wired to believe that it cannot live without a substance such as drugs or alcohol. People might feel a rush from gambling, drugs, or alcohol. What is happening is that dopamine inside of the brain is getting released in response to the way these substances and activities trigger the receptors. The brain likes this feeling so much that its wiring changes. As a result, the brain is conditioned to believe that it needs dopamine surges to survive. Because these surges are coming from drugs and alcohol, the body learns to associate these behaviors with survival. As a result, people get hooked on these substances. This is how addiction forms.

Understanding Addiction Treatment in Southern CAlifornia

Why is Treatment Needed?

It is critical for everyone to know that there are trained professionals who can help them fight back against the specter of drug abuse and addiction. For too long, people who needed help have had to go without reliable treatment services. For a long time, there was a stigma surrounding mental health issues including drug abuse and addiction. Now, this stigma is gone. People realize that addiction is an actual disease and it needs to be treated as such.

At Enlight Treatment Center in Southern California, we provide a vast array of services with a 3-1 staff ratio to help people fight back against addiction, achieve sobriety, and get on the road to recovery. We also try to educate all of our clients and their families on how addiction works. In this manner, everyone will be able to understand how addiction is treated just a little bit better.

Why is Addiction Treatment Needed?

The Progress of Addiction

As the disease continues to progress, the symptoms start to get worse. Someone who suffers from addiction will start to sacrifice everything in his or her life in an effort to feed this addiction. They might start to lose relationships with loved ones. Their work performance might start to suffer. They start to drain their bank account in an effort to feed the addiction. They might even start to sacrifice sleep. Very quickly, everything in life starts to be about feeding the addiction. This is when the disease truly takes root. As a result, it is critical to tackle this illness as early as possible. This is where addiction treatment is important.

How Addiction Treatment Works?

Addiction treatment is the process of helping someone overcome his or her illness. The treatment of addiction can take many forms. This is one of the main benefits of addiction treatment. The treatment program can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual. Because everyone’s root cause of addiction is different, the treatment is going to be different as well. What might work well for one person might not work for someone else. Therefore, it is important for everyone to be familiar with some of the most common addiction treatment programs. We are proud to provide a wide variety of services to those who come to see us for help with addiction treatment.

Our staff is passionate and dedicated to providing the absolute best care. That is why Enlight Treatment Center consistently has a 3-1 staff ratio. We ensure every client has the attention and personalized care they need.

Our addiction treatment program in Ventura County, just outside metro Los Angeles provides a variety of treatment options. These include:

Detoxification Services

Detox is the first phase of the recovery process. When someone comes to see us for detox help, we will help them flush the toxins out of their system in a controlled setting. The first step on the road to recovery is to get drugs and alcohol out of the body completely.

Residential Inpatient

Once the toxins are gone, we can proceed to an intensive inpatient therapy if necessary. This program may last for a few weeks to a few months. Here, we will get to the root cause of someone’s addiction and find ways to help them fight back through therapy and group sessions.

Incidental Medical Services

We are also proud to provide incidental medical services. We know that some people might have other medical problems that need attention. We have staff who can handle this as well.
