What is the difference between drug abuse and drug addiction?
It’s always possible for drug abuse to turn into full blown drug addiction. While this is usually the path that a person takes, there is a possibility that a person may not fall into the trap of drug addiction based off of their drug abuse. Drug abuse could still be potentially harmful as well and cause a person to make decisions that they may not otherwise make if they weren’t under the influence of that drug.
What are the symptoms of drug addiction?
There are several symptoms that a person may be grappling with an addiction to drugs. For instance, if they begin to become anti-social or experience erratic shifts in mood of behavior, experience difficulties maintaining their job as a result of their drug use or they have lost relationships with their friends or family as a result of it, it’s possible that they may be suffering from more than just drug abuse and that they have transitioned over into drug addiction. .
How does drug addiction start?
The reason why a person develops a drug addiction for several reasons. In many cases, drug addiction is the result of a person experiencing some form of trauma in their life that may not have been properly addressed. When you come for drug rehab, you will have the opportunity to dive headfirst into the root causes of your addiction and work through them so that they aren’t something that holds you back anymore.
How do you prevent drug addiction?
It’s possible for a person to develop a drug addiction at any point in their life. The only true way to prevent drug addiction is to never consume a substance and educate yourself on addiction. .
How do you get help for drug addiction?
Reaching out for help from an experienced team of addiction professionals is the best way for you to receive help from your addiction. An intake team will be able to answer any of the questions you have about coming for treatment so that you can make the decision in terms of which treatment program and facility are best for you.
How is drug addiction treated?
Drug addiction is treated through participating in different forms of therapy through a drug rehab program. If you decide to come to The Source, you will participate in individual therapy, behavioral therapy, trauma-based therapy, group therapy, and even family therapy when you come to a place in your treatment where you are ready for this step.
Can drug addiction be cured?
Drug addiction is something that can be cured, however, it requires work to maintain your sobriety for the rest of your life. Working through a drug addiction program, going to different 12 step meetings, and making connections with other people that can help you to remain focused on your sobriety are all things that you must do to remove the negative impact of drug addiction from your life.
How does drug addiction affect relationships?
A full blown drug addiction could fundamentally break down the relationships that you hold near and dear. However, when you work through a drug treatment program, you will learn what steps you can take to put these important relationships back together.
Can a marriage survive drug addiction?
There is always the possibility that your marriage could survive drug addiction. However, it’s important to note that both you and your spouse should reach out for help and support to ensure that your marriage stays together. The spouse that is impacted by the addiction must take the time to commit to a comprehensive drug rehab program while the sober spouse must find his or her own system of support. This is something that a drug treatment team can assist both of you with.
How do you stage an intervention for drug addiction?
If you would like help or guidance in staging an intervention, the first thing that you should do is to reach out to an addiction treatment center that can provide you with the resources and the guidance that you need to navigate you and your loved ones through the process. There are several steps that you should take to prepare yourself for the intervention, especially since there is always the possibility that your loved one may not be open to it. Reaching out for professional help is a step that you should always take.
The Source quite frankly saved my life and got me back on track, never giving giving up on me. When you are thinking about and looking through all of the different places to go for treatment this is the one that should stand out from the rest.
The staff, therapist’s and owner are truly involved in every aspect of your care. My saving grace was the care, compassion and over the top hard work the Care Coordinator Taylor put into my treatment. She goes above and beyond what is expected of a treatment center staff member and really brought life back into me during a really difficult and stressful time. In addition to her being an amazingly caring person, she runs the alumni meetings which are always a great way to keep in touch and stay focused on my recovery. Thursday nights are now a really enjoyable night and getting to see the “whole gang”. When you go to The Source you truly become part of the family. Thank you so very, very much to everyone there for not giving up on me, getting me back to the real me. My family is forever grateful as well. I’d recommend this place to anyone and if you are looking for a smaller, more individualized treatment center you found it. Thanks again guys!
I have been to some of the best treatment centers in the country and it wasn’t until I came to the Source. That I finally got the treatment and help I needed for long term sobriety.
My story begins with a conversation with Randy, one of the most well informed and compassionate people I have ever conversed with. During that conversation I expressed what I thought my failures in the other treatment centers were, I believed they never treated or address the root cause of my drinking and why, I Started in the first place. It was Due to A variety of Trauma Disorders During the intake process they assigned me 2 therapist that specialized in different trauma therapy techniques. The staff was excellent from Bill the Operations Manager all the way down to the techs who made sure we got to are appointments on time, and all are needs where being taken care of. The therapist are fantastic From EMDR ,Cognitive behavior, RRT Therapies and many more, the treatment for my trauma and how it added to my addiction was 2nd to none.
My time at the Source was the best decision I ever made and the only reason I am sober and alive today, the kind and compassionate staff to the luxury accommodation’s. The source is the place to come. if you are struggling with addiction and Trauma of any kind. You will not get better Treatment, than the Source. I owe my life and sobriety to the Source.

The Source Treatment Center - Alcohol & Drug Rehab
Randy is an amazing and compassionate person who has a heart for people entrenched in addiction. I reached out for help for my friend in CA who was ready to overcome but ended up in the hospital before we could make his travel arrangements to the The Source. Even though we didn’t end up using the rehabilitation available, Randy made sure that the phone I purchased got to the shelter where my friend stayed (this included hours on the phone to check on a shipping delay due to a storm and contacting the shelter’s main office to ensure delivery). He also checked in regularly for an update on my friends sobriety progress. The phone ended up being the lifeline that helped him stay connected & overcome. He’s 6 months sober and going strong!!!! My friend and I will be forever grateful for Randy’s knowledge and assistance. If you’re looking for a place to help that cares about you or your loved ones addiction, this is the place.
The Source not only helped me get sober, they also helped me understand my addiction so that I can lead a sober, healthy, happy life.They take a healing, therapeutic, family approach with their clients. You are not just a number at the Source, they truly care about getting you clean and sober. If you are like me and ready to change your life, there is no better place to start than right here.
Before I came to The Source I was broken, I had burned every single relationship in my life, I hated myself, and I had no confidence in my ability to stay clean. Today I have one year clean and sober, I’ve reconnected with my family, I work full time in treatment, and have worked through the steps of the AA program. The Source is unlike any other treatment center I have been to. I’ve been made many false promises by other facilities, but everything that Randy and Bill said to me on the phone was true. As soon as I got to the source I felt like part of the family. The staff went above and beyond to make sure I received the therapy that I needed. I was able to work through past trauma that I was never given the chance to do before and it has changed my life and my recovery. After I graduated from the program I was offered a full time job working at the source, and it has been a goal of mine to work in treatment and share my experience with others. Thanks to the Source and their team I was able to work through the emotional pain that was holding me back and have the confidence I need to move forward. I just celebrated one year clean and sober and am more stable in my life and recovery than I have ever been. Thank you to the amazing team that was there to carry me through!
I cannot reiterate enough on the professionalism and dedication the source performs. I'm a pretty stubborn person and very skeptical most times. It didn't take long at all to realize the level of care The source operates in. I came here a 1000% sure that I was going to do the bare minimum just to get home. I truly feel like I gained a family that I can take with me on my continued path of recovery. I know the source talks a big game of compassion and having any tool to help you reach your goals. But they absolutely back it up. A huge shout out to bill, Julie and Cammie. Words can not express my level of appreciation. All the other staff too, I could go on and on. You guys all saved my life, and I know I will always be apart of the family.😊
Thank you for creating an environment to thrive in. Not only to get sober, but create an awesome life by clearing out the junk that caused me to use substances in the first place. There are many different therapies that this addiction treatment facility has to offer, as well as an array of therapists and facilitators that offer different outlets and perspectives. Everyone at this facility actually cares about you and puts your sobriety at the top of there list. They don’t just want you to get sober short term, but give you the tools to achieve long term sobriety for your real life. I am blessed I had the opportunity to go to the source, and learn from all of the source staff, or better put, the source family. Thanks again for another shot at an awesome life!!!
Thank god for the Source!!! Loved this place!! Very professional and they have a VERY well rounded program including one on one personal therapy, trauma therapy, family and group therapy. The team is great and they truly all feel like family!!! I love everyone there and couldn’t have picked a better place to go!! I am personally thankful to everyone there and forever will be a part of the family there!!!Charlie
This place has been a life saver!! My daughter has never been to a treatment center where she has felt so loved, respected, encouraged and supported with a multitude of therapies and counselors. Our family has been treated with the same care and concern as well as honest helpful advice. Every one on staff has been available and willing to answer questions, concerns or updates on our daughter through phone calls or emails expediently. I would recommend The Source for you or your loved one if you want to truly have addiction recovery!
I have spent the past 6 weeks @ the source & let me start by saying that you could not find a better place to recover from Addiction. It is one big family that truly care about you. I wanna give my favorite tech Caileigh a special thanks for being a friend to listen when i needed an ear. Also wanna mention Bill, the owner, goes above & beyond to get your needs met. Danny,Emily, Nurse Michelle, Jeanie, Helen, Erica, Chris, Karen, Susan, Julia, Cami, and anyone i forgot to mention i just wanna let you all know you made a huge impact on my life & i can not thank you enough. I love & will miss you all so much & I will forever be part of The Source family!
If you or a loved one are looking for help, STOP LOOKING! You’ve found it! The Source has helped me in ways I didn’t think were possible. Everyone that works there played a key role in my recovery. The therapy you will receive is some of the greatest therapy I’ve ever had in my life. The staff is warm and welcoming and all of them understand because they’ve all been where you are! I was at the lowest point in my life when I called Randy and he told me about Bill and the rest of the staff at The Source. And that call was the most important call I ever made. If you are struggling, stop waiting and pick up that phone, a beautiful life is waiting for you I promise!
Bill R. it wasn’t just my husband he saved! He saved my family- the source it’s just it... a source of caring, source of the right tools to give someone a chance to evolve and make their lives better- you came to my family’s aid- I can never thank you enough for that ❤️❤️❤️
I was so lost in my addiction. From the chaos to the constant lying to others and to myself ! I just wanted my addiction to stop before it killed me .The source was a life changing experience. The source saved my life . You have to want your sobriety ! So if you want your sobriety and you want to learn about why you are the way you are ? There is no place better then the source . Your addiction is paramount to everyone from Bill the owner to Elsa one of the therapists to Karen one of the group therapists to Matt one of the techs etc . To many to list . They have several treatments from brain-mapping to bio- beds to family therapy etc . To many to list . They find out about you . Then break you open and put you back together ! They give you tools and training for life . Helping you build better connections to maintain your sobriety. We are always going to be addicts . The source shows you how a healthy sober lifestyle is maintained. If you want that ?? Get yourself in to the source .
I cannot fully put into words how eternally grateful I am for The Source treatment center. I ended up at the exact right place at the exact right time to salvage what was left of my life. Randy spoke at a different PHP program that I was attending and I immediately knew what my next step would be. Bill and Mark run an amazing program. I was literally welcomed with open arms and made to feel like family instantly. The genuine care and love from this staff is something that you won’t find anywhere else. My therapist, Ann was the best. I’d never felt more comfortable opening up to one than I did with her. Michelle the Nurse was always around when I needed her and she would really advocate for my health needs. Susan the Art Therapy facilitator always brightened my day. Danny, Emilly, Camie. I could go on and on. Bottom line is that we do recover and this place and the people in it are miracle workers and I am one of the miracles to prove it!
I can honestly say that the source is by FAR the best treatment center I've ever been to. Why? Because they aren't all about the money like most rehabs and they genuinely care about each and every one of their clients. Its truly incredible. I came in after an unplanned pregnancy.. I was scared, and broken in every way possible.. I had burned every bridge with my loved ones and desperately needed help. What I found far exceeded my expectations.. I was greeted with love, compassion, and unending support. In addition to the beautiful housing, they took me to all my prenatal appointments, got me what I needed for my pregnancy when I had nothing, and best of all, gave me HOPE that change was possible. Here everything was different. I began to open up, and come out of my shell.. They helped me rebuild broken relationships with my family, for which I will be eternally grateful, and let go of bad habits that were taking me out. I come out today with nearly six months sober, something I never felt was possible. I also have a new sense of purpose, my family back in my life, and a newfound excitement for motherhood and future I never thought existed. Thank you all so much.
Greatest treatment experience ever. From the founder down to the much appreciated techs. I recommend this treatment center for anyone struggling with life terms and addiction. This place will get you right. 100% Satisfaction in my opinion. Thank you Bill and staff. I am truly grateful.
I am a parent of a loved one trying to understand and help my family member with recovery. Randy has educated me, helped me find a sober living community, and guided me every step of the way. He still continues to reach out to me, and is going to visit my son where he is currently living. I would highly recommend going to “ the source”, just for the reason that Randy is involved with this facility. His intentions are solely to help and it’s never been about the money 😊
I have been to a few treatment centers and am incredibly thankful to have ended up at The Source. Bill and Randy have far exceeded my expectations when it comes to making this feel like home. From the moment I reached out to them, they let me know that they are not like most treatment centers, that they are like a family. They really mean this! For the first time I haven’t been counting down days until program completion. I feel like the work I’m doing is actually helping me. The staff is incredible and kind. The therapists know how to get inside your head. The facilities are clean and accommodating. There are loads of activities to participate in. Overall the Source is a fantastic place to turn to when looking for recovery.
After many rehabs , my daughter finally “gets it” she feels so comfortable here and says they are the nicest people she’s ever met , they truly care! And that’s not easy to find! Randy and Bill are totally awesome guys that helped us and my daughter out tremendously ! Words can’t explain how much it’s meant to us!
I came into the source treatment center one year ago in November & I was a mess. I was a total broken and shattered person. It was my very first time in treatment after running since I was 15& i am now 25 I had no clue what I was getting myself into. I didn’t get it the first or Second time but this place never one time gave up on me. Never let me think there wasn’t any hope. My family was waiting to bury me and everyone just wanted it to end any way that it possibly could. Today I am sober, I have built a life I don’t want to destroy & I never thought I would ever be in this head space. I will be forever grateful for the source and everyone who helped save my life here. ❤️
I cant say enough to explain how great this center is. A genuine caring & family attitude is what you will experience. First I have to say that Randy Clark definitely saved my life. Randy came to visit me at the hospital after my wife inquired about the Source. I was in a really bad way and I was definitely hesitant about going into treatment thinking primarily about my career and feeling ashamed. Randy met with my wife and mother and gave them the guidance on how to get me in to a safe detox before I went to the Source. Randy was there for me when I was discharged from detox and has stayed in touch with me frequently. Randy shared his story with me and shot it straight with me on what work I needed to do. " You get out what you put in " Once I arrived at the Source I was introduced to a fair, kind and knowledgeable man named Bill Rodman. Bill is a very busy guy at the Source however he always makes you feel special. I don't want to leave anyone out however I would have to write a book to give everyone the credit they deserve. Bill stayed in touch with my wife and gave her support on how to help me avoid possible dangerous situations. No matter what may be your situation this family has experience on helping you, if you want your life back. I am Thankful this Thanksgiving and always for my recovery and that I am blessed to have The Source in my life.
Randy Clark was A tremendous help in my recovery. Even though I didn’t go to this treatment center in particular he helped me find the courage to go into treatment and help with the process from detox to IOP and sober living. In the first two months of my recovery I called him every day and he always answered the phone or got back to me right away. I could not have done this process without him. He even kept in contact with my dad who knew nothing about recovery and helped him with encouragement that I would be able to do this if I tried and put my all in it! I did exactly that and I’ve been seven months clean! He is truly my rock!
I love this place! They truly care about their clients..and that’s hard to find in the rehab world! They have a passion for helping people and it really shows! Ur not just another paycheck to them..they scholarshipped me so they’re making no money off of me!! They’re the best of the best..if u truly want recovery this is the place u need to go! Randy and bill are awesome too: they go above and beyond for their clients! I fully recommend the source!
On November 1, 2019 my mom and i decided to take a leap in faith and seek help for our love one. My sister n law had already provided her with this brochure regarding information about the source . From the looks of the brochure I immediately headed over to the center located off of Commercial. When we arrived there , no one was at the facility so i began researching and was able to get into contact with Randy. During this time Randy was having dinner and with out any hesitation Randy told me , give him 30 minutes. He could off simply heard my situation over a phone call or even a text but he made it his job to come meet with my mom and I. Randy shared with us his situation , meanwhile following after my mom and I began to explain to him exactly what was going on . From that moment on it was when I knew we were dealing with the right person.Just by the conversation alone which took place , reassured my mom and I that we have made a good decision. After leaving the source my heart felt so much better , I immediately began calling my siblings to let them know that Randy , will be able help guide us in the right direction My mom and i felt so relieved that night . Fast forward to right now currently Randy is still helping my family get through this and coaching us every step of the way. God couldn't have placed anyone else in our lives to help us .Thank you again were for ever gratefulTamara
I have to say how my experience with a team member from the source has impacted my family! We contacted “The Source “ and Randy Clark responded. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable about addiction, he knew exactly how to assist my family. What’s unique about the service we received from Randy is that after he confirmed we did NOT have the insurance to receive treatment from the source he promptly linked us to a treatment center that did accept our insurance. Randy helped us help our love one get into treatment. Randy knew the importance of time and that we needed to move quickly! He arranged transportation for our loved one to get to the treatment center and secured our love in treatment within 1 day of contacting him. Randy took ownership and really exercised compassion towards my family! He even assisted my family and coached us all along while we worked to get our love one in treatment. Although our love one is in not at “The Source” treatment center, I can only imagine how great of a team the source has and the excellent work they are doing! I am forever grateful for your help Randy!
I love this place! They truly care about their clients..and that’s hard to find in the rehab world! They have a passion for helping people and it really shows! Ur not just another paycheck to them..they scholarshipped me so they’re making no money off of me!! They’re the best of the best..if u truly want recovery this is the place u need to go!
Please take this as a real post. Due to my job I cannot put my name on here. I came to the source six months ago. When I first came they kept telling me it was a family and I would cringe. Six months later I agree; It is a family. The staff is compassionate and talented. The program is diverse with art therapy, music therapy, group therapy, and one on one counseling. The program is small enough so that you get to know all the other clients well And everyone treats each other with respect. I have nothing but good things to say about this place. It’s saved my life. I am so grateful that it helped me get back on my feet emotionally and physically
I came into treatment at The Source reluctant. My girlfriend was 6 mos pregnant and there were many promises made that I felt were too good to be true. I wasn’t fully ready but I knew I needed to find a place that would take a couple that is expecting which is extremely unlikely with treatment facilities. Randy delivered on every promise, Bill (owner) goes above and beyond, and even when I was teetering on possible relapse and not being myself, they never wavered. We are safe, healthy, and have the most consecutive time under our belts we’ve ever had. These people truly care and do whatever it takes for the welfare of their clients. Even on my most difficult days I can’t say anything negative about my experience with The Source. My baby’s almost here and we’re are excited to be the great, healthy, parents we know we can be thanks to the support of The Source.
My life was literally saved by the staff here. This past august through my addiction and actions over the last 38 years I was at my lowest point.I was mid cut through my right wrist (have the scar to prove it!). Something that I now know was God had me stop and post HELP on Facebook which I did. Only one out of my then hundreds of friends replied and said my friend Randy Clark from the SOURCE is going to call you in the next five minutes. It was an eternity waiting less than the minute it for him to call. He took hours out of his night trying to reach me and the next morning upon finding my Cigna card and giving him the information he needed, he ran it and said "that I was not in their network". That is where this story should have ended, so I thought. He proceeded unfazed and with nothing to gain for his center or so I thought and continued to fight for me! He got me into a another treatment center and even toured it on my behalf to make sure I would be safe and taken care of. He even helped me arrange transport and while in another detox and center was my only visitor and is still cheering me on and always available ANYTIME I need him. I owe my life to these people and Randy Clark and I am not even a client. I can speak to their authenticity and I did not even go there. This is a REAL review for anyone who has lost hope or as they say "is a long shot". I am so blessed to have them in my corner.
This place is by far the best treatment center I’ve ever been too great welcoming loving staff we’re all family here with all the Good things Randy told me about the source it felt like it was too good to be true but once getting here settling in it all came true and it’s turning my life around. Would recommend it to family and friends
This treatment center is by far the most caring and helpful place I have ever been to. I found a new family here at the Source, who I love. They truly want to help everyone get better and put them on the path for long term sobriety. I would recommend this place to my own family or friends if they needed help.
Even though my son's insurance would not cover treatment at The Source, their VP Randy has gone above and beyond what anyone else has done for us at any of the treatment facilities my son has been in over the past 5 years. He helped us find covered treatment facilities which he personally vetted, and helped me to stop killing my son with enabling. l can not say enough about the level of caring he extended to our family - these people get what a terrifying ordeal addiction is, for the entire family involved, and Randy has made me feel I am not alone, and helped me to finally embrace Al-Anon and put my trust in a higher power, to stop trying to fix things.
The outreach staff are very helpful, going beyond what would be expected. They are there to help even if you do not go to their treatment center. They helped our daughter, after being discharged to the street from a local hospital, find a safe place. Highly recommend them as our daughter responded to their help which surprised us! Thank you Randy!
As a mother all you want is for your child to have the life they deserve. My daughter has struggled with addiction for years, and she has been to more treatment facilities than I can count. She has not been a part of the family for some time. She has told me that this is the way she will always be, there is no hope. The source gave her a home when she had none. She referred to them as her family and being there felt like home. I am grateful that while our family relations were being restored she had a place to call home and people to call family. She is 6 months sober today... has a job and a life she can be proud of. Thank you to the Source for giving me my daughter back, I am forever grateful.
Everyone from the management to the therapist as well as clients really care about your well being. They will accommodate your individual needs to the fullest. The residence are roomy clean and safe.. Classes are to the point and Relevant. I would recommend The Source to my family s well anyone else with addiction.
This was an awesome place! When i literally had no where to go these guys picked me up and took care of me. They treat you like family here and if you ever need something done they will help you however way they can! They made me feel welcome and what they try to teach you is coping skills, relapse prevention, paws, and feeling awareness. Fantastic place
We truly believe that each client is an individual with unique life circumstances. We help the client recognize and correct the dysfunctional behavior patterns that have overtaken their existence and ultimately heal the pain of the past, so they can lead a healthy, addiction-free life.
