Highly Effective Evidenced-Based Drug Rehab Garners Attention In New England

Within the medical field, it is commonplace to determine the effectiveness of a methodology or treatment by gaining empirical evidence via theory in practice. One particular drug rehab facility has dedicated the past 12 years to refining their treatment program to produce the most optimal outcomes for their clients.

Since their beginning over a decade ago, Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center has been providing their patients with the most cutting-edge, effective drug addiction treatment program available. Recently, their decade-long body of work has culminated in their latest treatment model which has been trademarked and termed as the Integrated Care Model.

Often times, drug rehab programs simply focus on symptom management of an individual’s addiction. Rarely are treatment programs concerned with all aspects of an individual, from physical symptom management, to spiritual aspects as well as any social issues that may arise due to the addiction.

“When we first began our program, we realized that, in order to maximize the chances for successful recovery, we must address all of the facets of an individual instead of merely offering symptom management,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside. “Most addicted individuals are disconnected from reality and out of touch with themselves. We take them through the process of individualizing a treatment plan specifically for them which addresses their complete needs. As a result, we are able to get people fully engaged in their recoveries. And, when a person is truly, fully invested in becoming well, the chance for successful, long-term sobriety skyrockets.”

While core tenets of traditional drug addiction treatment are observed, Mountainside offers its clients a long list of treatment initiatives which are designed to appeal to a variety of different people from a variety of different backgrounds. As such, individuals are given what they need to become released from the powerful grip of drug and alcohol addiction.

Switch Off Social Networking Regularly To Avoid Compounding Loneliness, Says Health Insurance Comparison Site Quoteboffin.co.uk

As increases in technology see the UK becoming ever more switched on to personal computers, online communication and social networking, a new report has appeared claiming that Britain is suffering from an epidemic of loneliness.

The report, from the Mental Health Foundation, found that more than one in ten British people often feel lonely and that many work long hours, live alone and socialise online rather than seeing friends and family in the flesh.

More than 2,200 adults were questioned for the study and it was found that while adults of all ages seemed to be being affected by loneliness, women tended to suffer from the feeling more than men.

Some have blamed the growth of social networking sites as a potential cause for this epidemic of loneliness and health insurance comparison site Quoteboffin.co.uk says that, like most pleasures, social networking sites are best enjoyed in moderation. A spokesperson for the company explained:

“While this is distressing news, we think that it’s important for people to take a long look at all aspects of their life and not just the amount of time they spend on social networks, if they are suffering from loneliness.

“Socialising online can be a positive experience for many people, so it’s important to identify all of the areas which could be a problem – including working long or unsociable hours – and addressing these. The most crucial thing to remember about social networking, is that it should be being enjoyed in moderation.”

It was found that more women than men claimed to be suffering from loneliness (47 per cent), but the number of men suffering was also significant (36 per cent) and almost one in five respondents said that they spend too much time communicating with friends and family online rather than in person.

However, the report suggested that it is too early to be able to determine whether technology is changing the way that people interact with each other in real life. It did find that online interaction is no substitute for the real thing though.

While loneliness is sometimes perceived as a mild form of mental discomfort, chronic loneliness can have a number of other effects on health – from unhealthy lifestyles to mental health problems like depression, alcohol or drug abuse and eating disorders.

Quoteboffin.co.uk added: “Loneliness is certainly a natural emotion, however it is when loneliness becomes excessive that it becomes a real problem – and this is when the threats to well-being start to multiply.

“From serious mental health issues to lifestyle changes that can damage physical health and push up health insurance premiums, loneliness could be at the root of many other problems – so people should make sure they heed warning signs and ensure they have a strong networks of support offline as well as online.”
