Just a few short weeks ago, the news of the death of Amy Winehouse took the world by surprise.
Ms. Winehouse’s father, Mitch Winehouse, devastated over his daughter’s tragic death, has decided to use her death as an avenue to help addicted individuals to take the steps to recover from alcohol abuse and drug addiction.
“Mitch Winehouse’s desire to help others is a wonderful thing to do in his daughter’s memory,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center. “Mr. Winehouse didn’t waste any time with his decision and commitment to helping others who are struggling with addiction. When making his public announcement, he made it known that by setting up this new drug rehab center, he wants to help those who may not be able to afford private addiction treatment. Unfortunately, affordability is often times a factor in an individual’s decision of whether or not to go into rehab. We’re encouraged that Mr. Winehouse has brought this fact to light and, as a result, are hopeful that more individuals will be able to access the services that they need for recovery.”
Affordable drug rehab is a challenge that has plagued the addiction treatment field for years. Fortunately, nearly one and a half decades ago, Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center saw this challenge as an opportunity to create a drug addiction treatment program that offered quality treatment and was among the most affordable.
Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center is a modern drug rehab facility that is skilled in serving a variety of clients with various addictions and in varying stages of addiction. The caring, compassionate team is made up of licensed and certified counselors and social workers who have extensive experience and specialty in the addiction treatment field. In addition, the staff includes a Nurse Practitioner, as well as a Registered Nurse, both of whom also have specializations and experience within the field of addiction treatment and alcohol rehab.
Mountainside also provides services for those individuals who come to them with dual diagnoses and require the services of a Psychiatrist to help conquer the unique challenges that dual diagnosis brings.
For the past 13 years, Mountainside has established itself as an innovator within the addiction treatment field, and the treatment modalities Mountainside utilizes are regarded as among the most cutting-edge approaches in helping individuals to get, and to remain, sober. As a result of their unique, innovative approaches to addiction treatment, Mountainside has become the model for the addiction treatment field.
The program, along with its professional addiction treatment team, have earned national recognition and resulted in Mountainside being invited to Washington by the White House to meet with the White House Drug Czar, John P. Walters, for an in-depth meeting on what makes its program so successful. These accolades did not go unnoticed within the addiction treatment field and resulted in the adoption by many throughout the country of a more holistic approach to drug addiction treatment.
