The Disease Model of Addiction
Recovery Keys of Jacksonville & St Augustine recognizes the disease model of addiction and treats substance use disorder as a brain disease, not a moral failing. Biologically speaking, initially rewarding chemicals have entered the brain’s pleasure center and have tricked the user into thinking he/she needs these chemicals in order to survive. This message negatively influences the behavior of the individual as he/she primarily strives to continue to supply the brain with the initially rewarding chemicals. The cycle becomes automatic and destructive as higher cortical functions of the brain are not helping the individual alter behavior.
In order to begin healing and learn new behaviors that will break the self-destructive cycle, both pharmacologic and intense behavioral therapies are often needed.
If you believe that you or a loved one is struggling with the disease of addiction, please schedule a thorough evaluation by a Board Certified Addiction Medicine Physician or other qualified addiction treatment professionals. During this evaluation you will receive recommendations to an appropriate level of addiction recovery care or program.
