Adapt has been providing help and support for recovery in Southern Oregon for over 30 years. Literally thousands of people have been given the opportunity to reclaim their lives and the lives of their families by participating in our programs.
However it does not matter how good a substance abuse program is. Unless a person wants to change... they will not. We feel that the largest part of the treatment process is providing the most current information to people so they can make the most informed choices about substance use. If they decide they want to change then our task becomes helping nurture that desire and re-inforcing the motivation to change.
If you, or someone close to you has a problem with substance abuse or other self destructive behaviors... we can help. We've been helping for years.

Chemical dependency is complex chronic illness. It pervades every aspect of an addict’s biology, psychology and behavior. At each level of existence, it transmutes function into dysfunction.

The ultimate cost of chemical dependency is incalculable. Scattered along the trail of destruction are individual lives, relationships, property, economies, promises, hopes and dreams.

Chemical dependency is treatable, but treatment must work on as many levels as the disease: individual, family, community, biochemical, psychological, behavioral, legal and economic among others. OnTrack’s strategy is to confront substance abusers in each of these realms, with the ultimate goal of restoring function where nothing remains but wreckage.

Located in Southwestern Oregon, Josephine County is bordered on the south by California and the Pacific coast is just two hours away. Josephine County was created by the Territorial Legislature on January 22, 1856, from the western half of Jackson County. And was named for Josephine Rollins, the first white woman to settle in southern Oregon. Learn more about the history of Josephine County here.

Josephine County is mountainous, but also has two major valleys and three rivers; the Rogue, the Applegate and the Illinois. These scenic rivers are world renowned for whitewater rafting and fishing. Many Josephine County Parks are situated on the Rogue River; these parks offer camping and great activities such as disc golf, hiking, volleyball, softball and fishing.

One point of interest in Josephine County is the Grave Creek Covered Bridge; this is one of the few functional covered bridges that remain in southern Oregon. This historic bridge is the only covered bridge visible from the Oregon I-5 freeway.

Addiction Begins with Pain

Friday, September 14, 2007 Addiction begins with pain, sometimes physical, other times mental or emotional.

Almost all use or abuse of alcohol or drugs is related to escapism- a need to deaden feelings of hurt, sorrow, loss or pain.

An addict may become an addict by first having a physical injury of some sort. The doctor prescribes pain medication, and before long the addict is hooked. Aside from the pain-killing effects of the drug on the physical body, the addict also recieves an emotional/mental relief, which contributes to the addiction.

A person who uses illegal, or street drugs, most often is searching for an escape. Many psychiatrists and therapists now refer to illegal drug use, or alcohol abuse as "self-medicating".

People are searching for a way to feel better, to forget something, or to just escape the difficulties of their lives. The use of drugs may be only a temporary fix, but to an addict, any relief is better than none at all.

In order to really help an addicted person there must be some way to address the underlying source of the self-medicating. Like a medical doctor, the therapist must attempt to find out "what hurts" and why it hurts, before the addiction can be addressed. Likewise the patient must be willing to face the pain of the injury, and experience their sense of loss, grief or sadness, rather than trying again and again to supress it or escape from it.

Recovery from addiction is not about self-control or will power. When an addict begins to use substances they never believe that they can become "addicts." It is the old "It couldn't happen to me" trick, that gets them to start using the drug. Promises of how the drugs "will make you feel good" or "make you feel better" and even "make you feel no pain" are an easy lure for people who feel bad, or are dealing with an intense emotional pain. If the drug actually does help "take a...
