    ADDICTIONS TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY: Our treatment philosophy is based upon the acceptance that addiction is a disease which affects individuals and families. It is chronic and progressive in nature. Effective treatment of this disease includes addressing the physical, emotional, social, cognitive, and spiritual aspects of the individual. Treatment is utilized in the least restrictive approach possible and effort is made in maximizing client choice in choosing appropriate levels of care. An integral part of Clear Concepts' philosophy is the involvement in Twelve Step Recovery Programs. We believe the ultimate goal of treatment is a well adjusted, fully rehabilitated individual who is capable of functioning in all areas of their life without the use of mood altering chemicals. It is recognized that this is a developmental process which required various lengths of treatment involvement. MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY: The treatment philosophy is to provide effective services to individuals suffering from a mental disorder. The goals of treatment are for the client to learn to recognize and accept their illness, develop and improve coping skills, eliminate dysfunctional behavior and begin the recovery process. Mental illness is an acute and/or chronic disorder that, if left untreated, is potentially life threatening. Clear Concepts' orientation is toward a cognitive behavioral approach with treatment being utilized in the least restrictive approach possible, utilizing medical consultations as needed. Effort is given in maximizing client choices in choosing appropriate levels of care.

      Commonly Asked Questions about Addiction and Treatment

      What does fentanyl do to a person?

      Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid pain reliever that is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. It's typically used to treat severe pain, especially after surgery, or to manage pain in individuals with chronic illnesses who have developed a tolerance to other opioids.

      When used under medical supervision, fentanyl can effectively relieve pain. However, when used illicitly or without a prescription, it can have severe, and even fatal, effects. Here's what fentanyl can do to a person:

      Physical Effects: In the short term, fentanyl can induce feelings of relaxation, euphoria, and decreased perception of pain. However, it also slows breathing and can lead to unconsciousness or death from respiratory failure, particularly in high doses or when combined with other substances that depress the central nervous system.

      Dependency and Addiction: Fentanyl is highly addictive. Regular use can lead to physical dependence, where the body requires the drug to function normally, and psychological addiction, where a person feels a compulsive need to use the drug despite its harmful consequences.

      Overdose Risk: Due to its potency, the risk of overdose with fentanyl is high, especially if a person mistakenly believes they're taking a less potent opioid, as illicit fentanyl is often mixed with other drugs. Overdose can lead to severe respiratory depression, unconsciousness, and death.

      Withdrawal: Once a person becomes dependent on fentanyl, stopping its use can result in withdrawal symptoms. These can include muscle and bone pain, sleep problems, diarrhea, vomiting, cold flashes, and uncontrollable leg movements.

      Long-Term Health Effects: Chronic fentanyl use can lead to an array of health problems, including severe constipation, increased sensitivity to pain, confusion, depression, and increased risk of infections due to needle sharing (if injected).

      Due to its potency and high risk of overdose, non-medical use of fentanyl is extremely dangerous. If you or someone you know is struggling with fentanyl or other opioid use, it's crucial to seek professional help immediately.

      What percentages of interventions for drug and alcohol addiction are successful?

      Quantifying the exact success rate of interventions for drug and alcohol addiction can be challenging due to the complex nature of addiction, variability in intervention methods and follow-up, and differences in how "success" is defined. However, studies suggest that interventions can indeed be effective in encouraging individuals to seek help for their substance use disorders.

      It's important to note that the term "intervention" covers a wide range of strategies aimed at encouraging individuals to seek treatment. These can include formal interventions organized by a professional interventionist, interventions conducted by family and friends, or interventions carried out by healthcare providers.

      The success of an intervention can depend on numerous factors, including:

      The specific nature of the person's addiction: The type of substance used, the severity of the addiction, and the presence of co-occurring mental health disorders can all influence the effectiveness of an intervention.

      The type of intervention used: Some types of interventions may be more effective than others, depending on the individual and their specific circumstances.

      The involvement of a professional: Interventions led by professionals who have experience dealing with addiction can potentially have higher success rates because they have the skills and knowledge to manage complex dynamics that can arise.

      The readiness of the individual: An intervention may be more successful if the person is already contemplating change or recognizes they have a problem.

      While it's difficult to provide a specific success rate, it's important to understand that even if an intervention doesn't immediately result in the person seeking treatment, it can still plant a seed that leads to future change. It can increase the person's awareness of their problem and their impact on others, which can prompt them to consider treatment at a later date.

      Remember, it's crucial to approach interventions with empathy, respect, and understanding, as addiction is a complex disease that often requires ongoing support and care. If you're considering an intervention, it may be helpful to consult with a healthcare provider or an addiction professional to determine the best approach.

      If a drug abuser loved their family wouldn't they stop?

      Substance Use Disorder, commonly known as addiction, is a complex disease that affects the brain and behavior. It's important to understand that addiction is not a matter of willpower or moral strength, and it doesn't reflect an individual's love or lack of love for their family. Here's why a person struggling with addiction might not simply stop, even if they deeply care for their family:

      Altered Brain Function: Drugs can alter the brain's structure and function, especially in areas related to reward, judgment, decision-making, learning, and memory. This can lead to intense cravings and a compulsive desire to use drugs, despite knowing the harm they're causing.

      Physical Dependence: Regular use of certain drugs can lead to physical dependence, where the body needs the drug to function normally. Stopping the drug can cause uncomfortable or even dangerous withdrawal symptoms, which can make quitting extremely difficult without medical help.

      Psychological Dependence: Some individuals use drugs to cope with stress, trauma, or mental health disorders. These individuals may feel they cannot function or feel normal without the substance, and overcoming this psychological dependence can be challenging.

      Fear of Withdrawal: Fear of the withdrawal process, which can be physically and emotionally painful, can deter individuals from quitting, even if they want to stop for their loved ones.

      Denial: Many people struggling with addiction are in denial about the extent of their problem. They may not realize or admit how much their substance use is hurting themselves and their family.

      Loving someone, even deeply, does not automatically grant the ability to overcome addiction. Recovery often requires professional help and involves more than just the decision to stop using drugs. It includes learning new coping skills, addressing underlying issues that may contribute to the addiction, and receiving ongoing support. With proper treatment and support, many people are able to recover from addiction and rebuild their relationships with their loved ones.
