Drug addiction is a disease of the brain. Years of studies have repeatedly demonstrated that a lack of willpower is neither the cause for addiction nor the reason why drug users fail to cease their destructive behavior.
Addiction treatment begins with recognizing the seriousness of the problem and having the courage to ask for help. Regardless of how long you have been suffering with drug addiction, what drugs you are addicted to, or what other conditions may be co-occurring, RiverMend Health Centers has a treatment program that can help you turn your life around.
Our scientifically-driven, comprehensive behavioral health and addiction treatment programs utilize evidence-based protocols and clinical pathways to provide you with the tools necessary to live a meaningful life in recovery.
Repeated drug use alters the body’s chemistry and results in low levels of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. At RiverMend Health Centers, our highly experienced practitioners work to repair the brain’s reward system by using a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach that raises low dopamine levels and restores the body to a balanced and healthy state.
We place a premium on creating a state of total wellness of mind, body, and spirit.
Our team of experts work together to change lives by facilitating the simultaneous physical, emotional, and spiritual transformations necessary to conquer your addiction.
