Addiction is not "ONE SIZE FITS ALL"

People with addiction deserve compassionate, evidence-based care that addresses the chronic nature of the disease of addiction.

Our Role

Here at Journey to Health and Wellness, our role is to provide the appropriate treatment, support, guidance, and advice for an outpatient patient. If your need is greater than what we can provide we will utilize our resources to assist in establishing the appropriate care needed.

Forms of Addiction we Assist with

Alcohol Use Disorder

People drink to socialize, celebrate, and relax. Alcohol often has a strong effect on people – and throughout history, we’ve struggled to understand and manage alcohol’s power. Why does alcohol cause us to act and feel differently? How much is too much? Why do some people become addicted while others do not?

National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders affect every gender, class, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. People from preteens to seniors may have eating disorders. Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, Compulsive overeating, binge eating disorder, other specified feeding or eating disorders (OSFED) and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID).

Recovery is a CONTINUUM of Care

Recovery is a process of change through which people improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential. Even people with severe and chronic substance use disorders can, with help, overcome their illness and regain health and social function. This is called remission. Being in recovery is when those positive changes and values become part of a voluntarily adopted lifestyle. While many people in recovery believe that abstinence from all substance use is a cardinal feature of a recovery lifestyle, others report that handling negative feelings without using substances and living a contributive life are more important parts of their recovery.

Steps of RECOVERY 

Pre-Contemplation

During the Pre-Contemplation stage, one has become aware of the consequences of addiction, but he or she is either justifying or minimizing them. One may even recognize that he or she is addicted and would, in theory, require treatment to overcome that addiction; however, an individual in the pre-contemplation stage of recovery still prefers to remain in active-addiction rather than to seek any rehabilitative services.

Contemplation

The transition from Pre-Contemplation to Contemplation is marked by the consensus that the consequences of addiction are more severe than he or she had previously believed. 

Preparation

In transitioning from Contemplation to Preparation, one realizes the repercussions of addiction far outweigh any perceived benefits. Moreover, he or she decides the behavioral changes necessary to get sober are attainable and accept that there’s a need for treatment, thus beginning the Preparation stage. 

Action

After progressing from pre-contemplation through contemplation and preparation, the individual reaches the action stage of recovery. During the action stage, the addict immerses himself or herself into recovery, which can include enrolling in a treatment program, joining a 12-Step group, or utilizing some other type of resource for rehabilitation. However, the action stage is more than getting sober; rather, the individual is committing to making significant lifestyle changes that will ensure a healthier and more productive life moving forward. In addition to learning the skills and strategies of recovery, the individual is also creating dietary, fitness, and career plans, as well as repairing and re-establishing relationships.

Maintenance

Between the action and maintenance stages, the individual completes the treatment program or other resource for rehabilitation and must assume responsibility for remaining abstinent and sober. In short, he or she must “maintain” the sobriety acquired during the action stage. This is an extremely important stage and is often not taken seriously, which is why most individuals who relapse do so during the maintenance stage. 

Termination

At the termination stage, the transformation of recovery is basically complete. Although remaining sober is a lifelong endeavor, an individual in the termination stage of recovery is likely to have regained his or her health, maintains healthy relationships, has a stable job or career, is financially independent, and feels confident that he or she will remain in this state.
