Cumberland Heights Offers Lasting Recovery from Addiction
You don’t recover from an addiction by stopping drugs or quitting drinking. Recovery from addiction lasts beyond the time you spend on Cumberland Heights’ campus. Recovery is a lifelong commitment, and Cumberland Heights is committed to you. You recover by creating a new life where it’s easier to not use. If you don’t create a new life, then all the factors that brought you to your addiction will eventually catch up with you again.
Gaining the ability to stop abusing drugs is just one part of a long and complex recovery process. When people enter Cumberland Heights treatment for a substance use disorder, more than likely addiction has taken over their lives. The compulsion to get drugs, take drugs, and experience the effects of drugs has dominated their every waking moment, and abusing drugs has taken the place of all the things they used to enjoy doing. It has disrupted how they function in their family lives, at work, and in the community, and has made them more likely to suffer from other serious illnesses. Because addiction can affect so many aspects of a person’s life, treatment must address the needs of the whole person to be successful. This is why Cumberland Heights incorporates a variety of rehabilitative services into their comprehensive treatment regimens.
The good news is addiction is a treatable disease. Research in the science of addiction and the treatment of substance use disorders has led to the development of evidence-based interventions that help people stop abusing drugs and resume productive lives. Studies have also shown those engaged in recovery communities over time maintain their sobriety. With this in mind Cumberland Heights has formed a fellowship of recovery among our own alumni and their families.
