Madison Treatment Center Announces Program Aimed at Supporting Individuals Seeking Substance Abuse Help


Madison, WI (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

A Madison treatment center is launching a program in support of individuals that are seeking help for their substance abuse problems through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

According to a report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in 2012, 4.0 million persons aged 12 or older (1.5 percent of the population) received treatment for a problem related to the use of alcohol or illicit drugs. Of these, 1.2 million received treatment for the use of both alcohol and illicit drugs, 1.0 million received treatment for the use of illicit drugs but not alcohol, and 1.4 million received treatment for the use of alcohol but not illicit drugs. (Note that estimates by substance do not sum to the total number of persons receiving treatment because the total includes persons who reported receiving treatment but did not report for which substance the treatment was received.)

The substance abuse problem is not entirely focused among adults or adolescents alone. Plus the addiction cycle produces destruction, loss and, at times, death … all causes from indulging in too much cocaine, heroin, Oxycontin, benzos or alcohol.

What the program offers is a shot for clients to leave the addiction treatment center with a better life waiting outside those doors. People come into these types of centers looking either for a new life or relief from their pain, and counselors and therapists on staff are ready to help.

Entering the Madison rehab center gives clients a new chance to be responsible members of society once again. They come to find themselves, discover new levels of self-esteem, and a spirituality that works.

Detoxification is followed by counseling, therapeutic help and support. Learning to navigate through everyday life without drugs and alcohol is akin to giving someone traveling through different states and/or nations a map and directions. Adults and adolescents will understand that this is a process, one that is not over in a matter of days. The substance abuse treatment center helps people rebuild their lives from the inside out.

Once people leave the treatment center, outpatient care and support is strongly suggested by counselors. Transitioning back into the real world takes time, too, and outpatient treatment allows clients an opportunity to share their victories and struggles with like-minded people.

Biofeedback Federation of Europe to Host Workshop on Neurotherapy for PTSD and Other Disorders by Canadian Psychologist Dr. Paul G. Swingle


London, England (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

Recent headlines out of Canada tell the stories of four Canadian servicemen who had seen action in Afghanistan, taking their own lives within a 2-week period. Similar tragedies are well known in the UK and USA. These headlines highlight the need for better ways of dealing with challenges faced by combat veterans.

An increasing number of veterans as well as emergency services personnel and civilians that suffer from PTSD are turning to neurofeedback as a means of treatment. Neurofeedback is the process of providing real-time information electroencephalograph (EEG) recordings about the levels at which brainwaves are functioning. Vancouver psychologist, Dr. Paul G. Swingle, is among many doctors who use neurotherapy in the treatment of PTSD, but he believes the key may lie in training that takes place before exposure to trauma. He recently developed a program at the Swingle Clinic in Vancouver, BC. called Precision Neurometrics. The novel biofeedback intervention teaches practical skills to service men and women prior to their deployment to the combat zone as well as after their return.

According to Dr. Swingle, “One of the discriminative features of veterans of combat who develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a severe deficiency in slow frequency amplitude in the occipital region of the brain. Often this is accompanied by a marked elevation of very high frequency amplitude frontally. These conditions are associated with poor stress tolerance, elevated mental activity and perseverative thought processes. These conditions are also genetic in nature. Although heritable, these neurological conditions are modifiable because of the plasticity of the brain. Duty readiness training specifically addresses these specific areas of brain functioning as well as those identified by the general neurological assessment that is part of optimal performance training (OPT). Once the neurological inefficiencies are identified and treated, brain efficiency is optimized and the specific areas associated with stress tolerance, perseverative thought processes and emotional volatility are optimized.”

He will share these techniques and others in his workshop “ClinicalQ and Braindriving: Fundamental Neurotherapy for Professionals” at Biofeedback Federation of Europe’s Annual Meeting scheduled to take place from February 11-15, 2014 in Venice, Italy.

About the Biofeedback Federation of Europe

Chula Vista, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

A Chula Vista treatment center is launching a new program toward lowering the risks of substance abuse issues for adolescents through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

The center is using data from a report issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to help craft this program. According to the report, in 2012, 65.7 percent of youths aged 12 to 17 perceived great risk in smoking one or more packs of cigarettes per day, 63.9 percent perceived great risk in having four or five drinks of an alcoholic beverage nearly every day, and 39.7 percent perceived great risk in having five or more drinks once or twice a week. For marijuana, 43.6 percent of youths perceived great risk in smoking marijuana once or twice a week, and 26.5 percent perceived great risk in smoking marijuana once a month. The percentages of youth who perceived great risk in using other drugs once or twice a week were 80.0 percent for heroin, 78.9 percent for cocaine, and 70.6 percent for LSD.

Cocaine, heroin, Oxycontin and benzodiazepines are just a few of the drugs that the treatment center helps people put in their past. Alcoholism, a disease that destroys individuals as well as families, is addressed through the substance abuse treatment centers programs.

The program offers a collective style of treatment options for clients.

People come into these types of centers looking either for a new life or relief from their pain, and counselors and therapists on staff are ready to help.

An initial step is detoxification from all mind-altering substances. This is overseen by a well-trained medical staff, making sure clients are supported, guided and nurtured through these initial hours and days free from their drug of choice.

St. Petersburg Treatment Center Announces New Program to Address Age-Specific Substance Abuse Issues


St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

A St. Petersburg treatment center is announcing a new program that addresses age-specific substance abuse issues is being started through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

According to statistics provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “In 2012, among adults aged 18 or older, age at first use of marijuana was associated with illicit drug dependence or abuse. Among those who first tried marijuana at age 14 or younger, 13.2 percent were classified with illicit drug dependence or abuse, which was higher than the 2.2 percent of adults who had first used marijuana at age 18 or older. Among adults, age at first use of alcohol was associated with alcohol dependence or abuse. In 2012, among adults aged 18 or older who first tried alcohol at age 14 or younger, 16.1 percent were classified with alcohol dependence or abuse, which was higher than the 3.6 percent of adults who had first used alcohol at age 18 or older.”

The new program at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers will help adults and adolescents get a grasp on where their “casual use” of drugs turned into a chronic dependency that led them into treatment.

Cocaine, heroin, Oxycontin and benzodiazepines are some of the drugs that the treatment center helps people get rid of from their lives. Alcoholism also is a problem, one that is not just swept under the rug and forgotten.

Ultimately, the program’s bottom line is to help all clients leave the addiction treatment center with a structure in place for life outside of it. People come into these types of centers looking either for a new life or relief from their pain, and counselors and therapists on staff are ready to help.

Entering the St. Petersburg rehab center gives clients a new chance to be responsible members of society once again. They come to find themselves, discover new levels of self-esteem, and a spirituality that works.

Once people leave the treatment center, outpatient care and support is strongly suggested by counselors. Transitioning back into the real world takes time, too, and outpatient treatment allows clients an opportunity to share their victories and struggles with like-minded people. When its all put together, from detoxification to outpatient care, the substance abuse treatment center gives people a second chance.

The Highlands Clinical Director Featured in Addiction Professional Magazine

Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

The Highlands’ clinical director was recently featured in an article in Addiction Professional magazine, published on December 16. Dr. Siegfried was interviewed by the magazine to discuss The Highlands’ new flexible scheduling program.

The Highlands, which treats individuals with eating disorders and other related conditions, has begun offering more flexible hours and schedules for those in need of treatment. Rather than make clients fit into a set program schedule, The Highlands allows those participating in the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to coordinate their treatment schedule with other commitments they have in their life. With a more flexible schedule, participants are able to attend school, go to work, or maintain their other regular responsibilities.

The IOP at The Highlands provides therapy and counseling sessions to clients that are trying to get back to their normal life. The IOP goal for clients is to get them to start living the life they want, said Dr. Siegfried. We want them to be able to balance our services with the life theyre creating.

In order to meet the scheduling needs of clients, The Highlands offers treatment at different times throughout the day. Dr. Siegfried stressed, however, that the program always provides structure and stability to individuals in recovery. Its really important to be able to offer flexibility, but to balance that with the structure and support thats necessary, Siegfried told Addiction Professional. At times, some patients need treatment to be more of a priority than their other life responsibilities.

Addiction Professional is a nationally renowned magazine, dedicated to “outlining what’s working in services for people with addictive disorders.” To read the magazine’s coverage of The Highlands’ flexible scheduling, visit http://www.addictionpro.com/article/eating-disorders-iop-makes-inroads-flexible-scheduling.

Nicole Siegfried, PhD, CEDS is a licensed clinical psychologist and Certified Eating Disorder Specialist. Dr. Siegfried has more than 15 years of experience working with patients with eating disorders. She is currently the Clinical Director of The Highlands, where she uses individualized treatment methods to help clients address the underlying issues that surround their eating disorders.

The Highlands Treatment Center for Eating Disorders is located in Birmingham, AL. It is an affiliate of Castlewood Treatment Center in St. Louis, MO, and specializes in client-based treatment for eating disorders and related conditions. In addition to the flexible IOP treatment, The Highlands offers partial hospitalization treatment and an intensive outpatient program.
