Drugs

 

Drug Addiction is a complex brain disease characterized by compulsive and at times uncontrollable drug craving, seeking, and use that persist even in the face of extremely negative consequences. Drug seeking becomes compulsive, in large part the abuse of drugs leads to long lasting changes in the structure and function of the brain and, thus, on behavior. Although it is true that for most people the initial decision to take drugs is voluntary, over time the changes in the brain caused by repeated drug abuse can affect a person’s self control making it hard for the person to quit. For many people, drug addiction becomes chronic, with relapses possible even after long periods of abstinence.

 

At EXIST, we help our clients understand and recover by working on both the symptoms and the underlying issues causing the addiction. We offer treatment in the form of one-on-one sessions as well as group therapy.

 

After a thorough initial assessment we help our clients find the treatment that suits their needs. Being extensively networked with other treatment facilities, clients may also be referred to detoxification centres and residential programs according to their needs.
