Alcohol Abuse Treatment Keene NH

If a person starts regularly drinking in excess, the brain cells' dendrites must grow more receptor cites to take up the amount of alcohol present. Growth of more receptors is called "up-regulation". With extra receptors now existing, these receptors will react if there is insufficient alcohol to be taken up. This is called "withdrawal", and it makes a person ill until they either drink more alcohol or continue to abstain and allow the body-including brain cells-to adjust.

Located in a peaceful rural setting at the base of Mt. Monadnock in Dublin, N.H., Phoenix House Dublin Center provides residential substance abuse treatment for adults in a physically and psychologically safe environment. Our goal is to foster a sense of well-being, dignity, and respect for self and others.

Dublin Center serves adults from New Hampshire and Vermont who need residential treatment for substance abuse, including those with co-occurring mental health issues. Length of stay is determined by individual assessment and progress towards clinical goals.

For New Hampshire residents, Phoenix House Dublin Center offers short-term residential care, which may include clinically managed detoxification services, and transitional living services during which clients continue living at our facility while participating in counseling sessions and maintaining a full schedule of work and/or school in the community. Our transitional living program fosters the development of positive social networks, provides continuing recovery support, and prepares clients to leave the treatment program by helping them develop life skills necessary for success.

For clients from Vermont, Phoenix House Dublin Center offers long-term residential treatment ranging from three to six months, depending upon individual needs. Our highly structured environment focuses on resolving addiction issues, building the foundation for a sustainable recovery, and developing a healthy, productive and meaningful lifestyle.

Treatment at Dublin Center combines individual counseling, clinical groups (including evidence-based practices), educational seminars, and recreational activities that challenge clients to understand the nature of their substance abuse and become accustomed to living in recovery. At Dublin Center, clients experience a sense of community and are encouraged to pursue positive goals and values.

Clients participate in the creation of their own individualized treatment plans, which include: individual, group, and family counseling; life-skills training and educational or vocational opportunities; education on substance abuse effects and relapse prevention skills; and participation in Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and other appropriate self-help groups. The program is supervised 24 hours a day by our professional staff.

Successful, sustained recovery from substance abuse requires family involvement, support, and encouragement. Families, too, need to reverse the damage of drugs and alcohol. Our staff works closely with family members to help them understand the role they play in recovery. We offer a number of individual and group sessions on a variety of topics. Participation in aftercare planning is essential and emphasized throughout treatment.

Admission is not contingent on financial resources. Self-payment options include check, money order, and credit card. For more information, please call us at 603 563 8501.

Alcohol Abuse

Jackpine

Friday, September 14, 2007 Alcoholism exists when brain cells have become accustomed to or addicted to alcohol. Alcohol crosses the blood-brain barrier in the brain and reaches sites where dendrites of brain cells take up alcohol molecules into cells, resulting in intoxification.

If a person starts regularly drinking in excess, the brain cells' dendrites must grow more receptor cites to take up the amount of alcohol present. Growth of more receptors is called "up-regulation". With extra receptors now existing, these receptors will react if there is insufficient alcohol to be taken up. This is called "withdrawal", and it makes a person ill until they either drink more alcohol or continue to abstain and allow the body-including brain cells-to adjust. This is called "down regulation".

Specifically, the added receptor cites on the end of brain cell dentrites will decrease in number. The decrease of receptors for alcohol occurs because the person is no longer providing alcohol for extra receptors to have to take up.

Alcoholism is an addiction at the cellular and molecular level, like other drugs. If a person stops drinking, they will be ill while the receptors for alcohol decrease in the brain and the body adjusts. Thereafter, a person must slowly begin to rebuild their lives in a sober manner which can be done, especially with the support of rehab centres and support groups.

It is worth the effort to stop drinking in order to next experience life as a sober person. We only have one chance to live this life here on earth; best to live it sober and healthy because even an intoxicated person knows in his/her heart that a sober and healthy life is the right way to live.

Alcoholics may feel badly about themselves and their alcoholism because they know there is a better, healthy way to live. There is always hope for a sober and good life. And there is nonjudgemental assistance.

There are many rehab treatment ...
