What Do I Do to Help a Loved One?
Repeated and prolonged drug use changes the brain, including parts of the brain that enable you to exert self-control. These and other changes can be seen clearly in brain imaging studies of people with drug addictions. These brain changes explain why quitting is so difficult, even if you feel ready. Therefore, it takes a lot of courage to seek help for a drug problem because lots of hard work lies ahead. However recovery at Cumberland Heights can and does work. For more than 50 years thousands attending Cumberland Heights have recovered from addiction. Like other chronic diseases, addiction can be managed successfully. Treatment enables people to counteract addiction’s powerful, disruptive effects on brain and behavior and regain control of their lives.
So what do you do? It is our goal to make the admission experience for addiction treatment as comfortable and simple as possible for those individuals seeking recovery. Our highly trained and licensed admissions counselors are dedicated to assisting you through each step of the admissions process. Each patient may present a unique need or circumstance, and those needs deemed appropriate during treatment are often met. Before your initial visit to Cumberland Heights, the individual receiving treatment (or a loved one) will receive a comprehensive admissions assessment with a licensed intake counselor which helps us determine the appropriate course for treatment. These are usually conducted over the phone and take about 10-15 minutes. Accompanying family members or friends can and should meet independently with an intake staff member for a brief interview and to have any questions answered regarding treatment as well.
