Mental Addiction Treatment Psychotherapy Processes

Effective mental addiction treatment processes such as psychotherapy, and sometimes even psychiatric medicine are needed to help someone to recovery. Mental recovery processes¬† must be introduced immediately following and sometimes even during the detox phase of addiction treatment. The main problem of the person suffering from chemical dependency, centers in the mind. “No one ever takes the first drink or drug drunk or high”! This must be the primary focus in the addict’s recovery from addiction and or alcoholism. “Once more “abusing drugs and or alcohol are only symptoms of the disease of addiction“. If someone is going to establish a life-long foundation of recovery, the whole person; the body, mind and spirit, must be treated. How do we treat or apply this mental addiction treatment to the mind of a chronic alcohol or drug user? What is the process for mental addiction treatment? First; it is important to understand what addiction or alcoholism is? It is a chronic (re-occurring-long lasting) illness of the mind (obsessions, delusions, etc.), the body (cravings, abnormal reactions, etc.), and the spirit or spiritual malady (lack of power or emotional instability, feelings of inadequacy, fear, anxiety, etc. sober). When viewed in this way it is easier to understand and comprehend the mental addiction treatment processes. Once the body is detoxed and separated from the chemicals, we must address the various symptoms of mental illness associated with addiction and introduce psycho-therapeutic processes. “Psychic Change” or “Mind Change” therapy is not complicated at all, in fact it is relatively simple. The difficulty lies in getting the addict to be honest with themselves. Let’s take the obsession for example: “this constant thought of the substance and the affect produced by it that the chronic alcoholic and or addict is preoccupied with, regardless of his or her consequences or circumstances”. After a person gets sober this mental condition is usually the number one UN-checked cause for relapse. Mental addiction treatment is simply about getting the person to admit he or she has this symptom, and with this understanding and admission, the recovery process can begin in this area. Life Springs Recovery Services understands how to integrate this mental addiction treatment process into the recovery program. Our success rate for lasting recovery speaks for itself.
