Drugs and alcohol alter and damage biological systems throughout the body. Addiction is not just a mental or emotional illness, but a physical illness as well. Counseling, behavior therapy, and group therapy address the mental and emotional aspects, while biochemical restoration addresses the physical damage.
The physical symptoms of addiction, alcoholism, and withdrawal trap individuals in a cycle of escalating use. The nervous system, liver, adrenal gland, along with other organs and systems, experience lasting changes from the barrage of substances. Insomnia, anxiety, hypoglycemia, and hormonal imbalances make day-to-day life difficult.
Biochemical restoration restores balance and promotes healing. By looking at symptoms and analyzing lab tests, doctors and nurses identify biochemical imbalances. Medical staff then create an individualized treatment with the appropriate vitamins and amino acids needed for healing. Correcting nutrient deficiencies, toxicity, and excessive heavy metals provide relief and aid the body in the healing process.
A complete addiction treatment program includes counseling, biochemical restoration, nutrition counseling, exercise, family education–everything important to a happy, healthy life.
