Progressive Treatments at The Source
The Source Addiction Treatment Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL, is well known for its progressive approach to treating the age-long disease of addiction. Whether the substance of choice is alcohol, opiates, or anything else; “By embracing the latest advancements in addiction treatment such as brain-mapping, and combining them with time-tested methods for diagnosing and treating the underlying causes of addiction including trauma and PTSD, we can provide our clients with the kind of tools necessary to achieve life-long recovery” states The Source founder Mark Korcok.
The relevance of Brain Mapping as a therapeutic component of addiction treatment is indicated by Medical professionals and the National Institute on Drug Abuse, who agree that addiction is a brain disease. Typically, drug and alcohol abuse begins as a voluntary response. Still, it can turn into a habit where the decision to use becomes a response to the body’s physical dependence.
Habitual substance abuse leads to structural changes in the brain, increasing the need to keep using the addict’s drug of choice. Often, people experiencing mental health conditions or disorders use drugs and alcohol to self-medicate, which they feel helps initially but becomes a larger problem.
