Addiction Treatment

Services > Addiction Treatment

According to ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine), the definition of Addiction is “a treatable, chronic medical disease involving complex interactions among brain circuits, genetics, the environment, and an individual’s life experiences. People with addiction use substances or engage in behaviors that become compulsive and often continue despite harmful consequences.”

The consequences of substance use can range from mild (e.g., feeling hungover, being late for work) to severe (e.g., homelessness, disease). Each time a person uses a substance it may seem to have little impact, but consequences can build up over time. A person who keeps using substances despite negative results in many areas of their life may eventually develop a substance use disorder.

Signs and symptoms of a substance use disorder can be:

  • injuries while under the influence
  • feelings of anxiety, irritability, or depression
  • trouble thinking clearly
  • blackouts
  • problems with relationships
  • spending money on substances rather than on food, rent or other essentials
  • legal problems related to substance use
  • loss of hope, feelings of emptiness.

Some people may not see that their substance use is out of control and is causing problems (denial). This so-called denial may simply be a lack of awareness or insight into the problem. Whether people realize it or not, lack of control is another common symptom.

At Divine Intervention Recovery Center, we believe in the medical model and research that suggests treatment efforts for addiction are generally as successful as a treatment for other chronic diseases. As treatment providers, we believe in meeting the client where they are in their recovery process and offer several levels of care. We offer partial hospitalization programming, intensive outpatient programming, and individual therapy as well as an alumni group to keep our clients connected to a safe place for recovery.

Some who struggle with addiction or substance misuse continue to use because of fear of withdrawal symptoms such as headaches, body aches, cold chills, vomiting, diarrhea, sleep disturbances, and other flu-like symptoms. At Divine Intervention, we understand these concerns and this is why we offer MAT (medication-assisted treatment) services to address the discomfort related to physical withdrawal.
