Innovative, Music-Based Substance Abuse Treatment
Drug and alcohol abuse is a leading killer of Americans. Between direct causes such as overdose, toxicity and alcohol poisoning and indirect causes like car accidents and other types of tragedies, this is an epidemic that is killing thousands of Americans each year. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that of the 23 million Americans that actually need treatment for substance abuse, roughly two million actually receive treatment. Between personal denial, lack of access to treatment and a variety of other factors, there remains a disconnect between those who need substance abuse treatment and those who actually get it. Recovery Unplugged provides quality, compassionate substance abuse treatment using the inherent power of music.
Defining Substance Abuse Treatment
Substance abuse treatment is necessary for anyone who has had their lives profoundly disrupted by their ongoing drug or alcohol abuse. This could mean they’re facing legal troubles, are in a declining state of health, are deeply in debt, and are estranged from their family or anything else. Substance abuse differs from addiction in the respect that chemical dependency has not yet formed. If substance abuse is allowed to continue unaddressed, however, it can and often does lead to addiction.
Recovery Unplugged offers different levels of substance abuse treatment, including inpatient, outpatient and partial care, for patients at various levels of substance abuse. The primary goal of substance abuse treatment is to help patients deal with their drug and alcohol abuse before addiction actually develops.
