25 million people need treatment for drug dependency or alcohol abuse yet only a small percentage ever seek the help they need.
” Out of the 25 million people that have an alcohol addiction problem, of only two and a half million essentially seek treatment, multiple problems multifaceted there for many reasons why there’s this big treatment gap, one of them very simply put is a biological reason this is a chronic disorder of the brain all the way down to the neuronal level so once somebody can reach a period of abstinence after that you still have these cravings or these triggers to where one is at risk for relapse, ” Board Certified Psychiatrist said.
The River Source Alum, Jacob Daffner says ” The person suffering from alcohol addiction could be someone you’d least expect your own child, a friend or even a parent, if the expert help needed to turn these lives around it’s readily available in this country, the key is to find a program that will treat the whole person mind, body, and spirit to keep them grounded in recovery. The gift of recovery from addiction really comes down to an individual decision to seek help and accept the alcohol treatment”.
” It sounds cliche but the first step is admitting that you have a problem, alcohol addiction or any other type of addiction I think one of the characteristics of alcohol addiction or drug abuse is denial and are not understanding that the gravity and the depth of the issue so if somebody can get to the point where they’re actually willing to ask for help and actually admit that it’s a problem I mean that goes a long way of starting them on the road to recovery” Clinical Director The River Source said.
Jacob Daffner says” I was homeless in Baltimore and I just got robbed and wound up in the ER because of the injuries and I really didn’t have any other options to tell you the truth and so I decided you know maybe they using has something to do with my why I’ve been so unhappy for so long and so then came here”

The Board Certified psychiatrist explain treatment by 12-step “part of the 12-step theory of giving up that control or one’s perceived control over the addiction and realizing that both healing from a biological model but also from the holistic model is has a spiritual aspect and that’s why it’s so important to have accepted as part of the first step if not the first step in becoming successful in abstinence”
