Addiction is Complex
Today, in the United States, there are approximately 2.7 million people who suffer from addiction. It can be difficult to understand why one becomes pulled into such a lifestyle; however, addiction is a complex disease that isn’t easily explained. People begin to use drugs for many different reasons and under many different circumstances.
Substances can actually physically change the brain, and oftentimes, quitting takes much more than just willpower, although it is an important component. Addiction is a chronic brain disease that causes one to experience compulsive substance abuse seeking and use, despite the harm caused to themselves and those around them. Still, conquering addiction is very much possible with the right resources, and often, the decision to get help can be one of life and death. In order to overcome this disease, psychiatrists and other medical professionals should be involved to ensure safety and success. Otherwise, the path addiction will continue to leads its victims down will be filled with even more devastation. The best decision an addict can make is to attend a treatment program, where they stop using and start learning healthy ways of coping with their underlying issues. There is no better time than the present.

Addiction Can Be Conquered
All of our programs here at Wellington Retreat are personalized and tailored to each individual patient’s needs. While many people who suffer from addiction also suffer from an underlying mental health issue, Wellington Retreat understands that if both are not treated simultaneously, the patient will not fully heal from either disorder.
Each patient meets with our Medical Director, leading neuropsychiatrist and addictionologist, Dr. Robert A. Moran, who diagnoses the patient and places them on the correct treatment track, which he continues to monitor closely throughout their stay.
With our use of evidence-based treatments, our high success rates, and our specialized staff, Wellington Retreat can promise our patients relief from their addiction.
