A severe consequence of alcohol misuse can be Korsakoff’s Syndrome, a term indicating alcohol induced dementia. This is one of the reasons why, along with evidence based psychotherapy practices, AToN encourages a holistic approach to nourish the brain and promote PsychoNeuroPlasticity. #addiction #braindamage #dementiaandalcoholism

MDMA is a Schedule 1 substance. It is given this rating because the FDA sees no legitimate medical use for it and it has the potential for abuse and addiction.

MDMA causes the release of the neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine in the body. The neurotransmitter serotonin plays an important part in the role of sleep, mood, pain and appetite. When large amounts of serotonin are released while taking MDMA, it causes the brain to become depleted of this neurotransmitter and the user ends up experiencing confusion, depression, fatigue and memory problems.

A Message to Families of Substance Abusers

At the AToN Center, our residents participate in family work, which includes acknowledgement of how use has affected the family, how the family can assist in recovery, and creating expectations and guidelines for the resident after discharge. Sometimes, additional family sessions are held when necessary. #helpforfamily #addictionrehab #familyandaddiction

Learn Self Soothing and Calming Techniques

Bring up an image that represents your discomfort.

As you think of the image that represents it, notice where you feel the disturbance in your body.

Now pretend that the feeling is “energy.” If it was a spiral of energy, which direction is it moving in: clockwise or counterclockwise?

As always, please take care of yourselves and maintain contact with your treatment providers!

5 Steps (Recognition, Interrupting, Changing Habits, Dissolving, and Transforming) help explain the importance of awareness, effort and wisdom that Mindfulness and Meditation provide. By practicing meditation and Mindfulness throughout our day, we have the power to end our suffering through practicing David’s 5 Steps. For those in recovery, using these practices daily may provide greater resilience to preventing relapse.

The multigenerational transmission of unresolved anxiety can wreak havoc on a well-intentioned family just trying to cope the best they know how. A disastrous method of coping is the use of alcohol and drugs to find relief. Drug and alcohol abuse exacerbates the tension and conflict of a family system with devastating consequences.

AToN Center clinicians can mindfully support the navigation of your family system to identify and effectively change the patterns that have plagued an individual and their family for possibly generations.
