I don't work in that area though we learned a great deal about it during my studies. I later chose to specialize in care for the elderly and the disabled (during my last three terms). My thesis though was a quantitative study on drug and alcohol abuse in the region that I live in). I have a bachelors degree in social work and chose to begin working after i completed because I'm not really young. The masters will come later if it does happen 'coz It's sometimes hard to tell the future.

Studies have revealed that when a non-alcoholic spouse joins in on the treatment program, the patient is likelty to participate more and continue to strive to become sober even after the treatment program is over. Couples therapy strengthens the benefits offered by the treatment program. Not only that, but it also forges a stronger bond between couples by encouraging them to solve their problems together, improve their communication skills, and engage themselves in a lot of shared activities. Couples therapy also comes with a relapse prevention plan. This method improves a couple's marital relationship as well as helps the patient make his way into sobriety.

Adjunctive therapy is therapy in addition to what is already being provided. For example, if you're in group therapy, an adjunctive therapy could be taking medication (i.e. nalprexon, campril, antibuse, etc.).

Even by their "Erchonia" information, I've never heard of this workingfor that problem. The laser is designed to increase cell (mitochondrial) activity, thus faster healing.

What are the kinds of therapy given to the people who are undergoing addiction treatment?

I was just wondering about this since I have heard that there are so many different types of treatments.

There are indeed many different kinds of therapy, each made to fit the needs of an individual. Some of these are relapse prevention, supportive-expressive psychotherapy, motivational enhancement therapy, behavioral therapy for adolescents, multidimensional family therapy (MDFT) for adolescents, among others. If you need details about these types of therapy, just access the links below. I hope this helps. :)

Normal results from acupuncture are relief of pain and/or improvement of the condition being treated. As is true with other forms of medical treatment, a minority of patients do not respond to acupuncture. The reasons for nonresponsiveness are not known at the present stage of research.
The purpose of acupuncture in TCM is the rebalancing of opposing energy forces in different parts of the body. In Western terms, acupuncture is used most commonly as an adjunctive treatment for the relief of chronic or acute pain. In the United States, acupuncture is most widely used to treat pain associated with musculoskeletal disorders, but it has also been used in the treatment of headaches, other painful disorders, and nausea and vomiting. In addition to these disorders, acupuncture has been used to treat a variety of disorders such as asthma, infertility, depression, anxiety, HIV infection, and fibromyalgia, although its efficacy in relieving these disorders is largely unproven. Acupuncture should not be used to treat traumatic injuries and other emergency conditions requiring immediate surgery. Also, while it appears to have benefits in relieving symptoms such as pain under the proper circumstances, it has not been shown to alter the underlying course of a disease. The exact mechanism by which acupuncture works is not known. Studies have demonstrated a variety of physiologic effects such as release in the brain of various chemicals and hormones, alteration of immune function, blood pressure, and body temperature.

Are there ways to overcome a food addiction w/o drugs or therapy?

This must be one of the hardest addictions to beat because with other drugs the user can attempt to completely avoid the drug, but you have to eat food which is a drug in food addiction. Any advice? (besides counseling/ psychotherapy, etc)

There are no quick fixes for food addiction. Also willpower is not enough for this type of problem, you need to find a good resource in the community to help you with this.

Personally for me I have found that Dr Phil is the only one who has gotten the formula on weight loss figured out. I endorse his methods because they are medically sound and are gathered from long term reliable true tested professional sources.

Seriosuly if you need at least a boost I would like to invite you to my site htt://groups.msn.com/KsandFriends-inwlc. I have over two years established presence on the internet. I also am pursing a degree in physical education and doing a double concentration in exercise physiology and public health education.

Hope that you find the help you seek.

Can video games turn into an addiction? Could Therapy be needed?

I'm a pretty hardcore gamer and I admit that sometimes I can play a certain game for hours without end. I even pretend to be sick and leave school just to get a couple head shots in Gears of War. But could that be classified as an addiction. In my opinion, not under any circumstance could therapy be needed. But what about your opinion? If you are also a gamer send me a Friend Request on XBOX Live. My Gamertag is IrishZomb1E TZA. Thanks.
