With being the 6th largest city in Pennsylvania, Scranton has a population of over 76,000 and at one time was one of the biggest coal mining towns. Many attractions celebrate the heritage of the industrial aspect of this great city. Unfortunately, a lot of people who live here are trapped in the cycle of addiction causing damage not only to themselves but to those around them.
Addiction is a destructive force that tears apart households, destroys dreams, separates parents from their children and takes lives. You or someone you love may be suffering in with a substance abuse problem and may not acknowledge it or refuses help. In that case, an intervention may be a good idea to prepare to guide them into the doors of recovery. An intervention is where the family of the addicted person voices their care and concern for the addict and the damage being caused by their addiction. If the intervention is successful, the loved one will agree to treatment.
Inpatient treatment has proven to be more successful than any other option because it offers 24/7 care, meals, education, groups, therapy, coping skills, and support from 7-90 days and up. Prior to going inpatient, going through detox may be necessary to clear the system of all the toxins and have a safe withdrawal/stabilization process. Another option for treatment is Outpatient services which include counseling, groups and education on addiction on any scheduled night throughout the week.
To answer simply, substance abuse addiction is a disease. It’s a chronic behavioral, psychological and clinical disease, and is treated like other diseases, with a multi-faceted approach of therapy, clinical treatment and behavioral treatment.
