what is addiction?


Addiction is a chronic brain disease manifest by compulsive substance use despite harmful consequences. It is also known as severe substance use disorder and can consume the focus of your whole life. Using a substance can temporarily intoxicate you (creating a “high,” relieving stress, improving performance, etc.) and will leave you wanting more. Overtime, you build up a tolerance, meaning you need more of the substance to feel the effects.

Using these substances changes how your brain functions. It re-routes your brain’s circuits to change your motivation, judgement, memory, behavioral control, and learning. It leads to impaired control, risky and impulsive behaviors, social and relationship problems, and other substance effects. It may be impossible to stop, even if you recognize that it is a problem.

We know many people experience addiction and mental illness together and are prepared to help you navigate those complexities. We are committed to helping you recover from addiction, a process of change where you abstain from the substance and improve your overall health and quality of life.

John Koelsch, LCSW

Our goal and mission is to treat substance abuse and addictions within the co-occurring population at Rehabilitative Health Services. We offer a variety of skills training concepts with DBT programming to help effectively deal with the disabilities.

Relapse prevention is a vital tool in working through recovery to maintain sobriety. Our MATRIX tool helps develop planning to maintain replase prevention. Finally mental health awareness and treatment is discussed with a co-occurring strategy to manage substance use and mental health disorders together.

We offer group and individual therapy to provide extensive information to help individuals understand and recover from co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. GAIN-I assessments are provided for level of care and placement recommendations.
