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.

Alcohol is Everywhere

Colm Clarke

Friday, September 14, 2007 We have all achieved many things in our life. Whether your a child or enjoying your golden years, I've no doubt you have achieved alot over your life. Alcohol is everywhere. There are more and more off-licences, pubs, restaurants, hotels and supermarkets selling one of the most devastating "drug" ever known to man than ever before. Binge drinking is on the increase across globe. In particular, binge drinking amoung teenagers in Ireland and Great Britain has reached a crisis level and as a result it is having a very negative effect on the education system and public order. If you begin to drink too much or use it as a cruch to reduce fear or anxiety in awkward situations it will greatly increase your chances of developing alcoholism. The chances of developing alcoholism is greatly increased if you drink alot over a period of time, on most nights (or days) a week, drinking the next day to cure a hang over, drinking to relieve depression or anxiety or panic attacks and mixing alcohol with tranquilizers or "street drugs".

You find that when you decide to go for 2 or 3 drinks that you end up drinking more, being unable to stop, having blackouts regularly, getting into all sorts of trouble. One minute you maybe out drinking and quite intoxicated and the next thing you notice is that you wake up in a police cell, or in a hedge by the road, or casualty, or by the sea shore etc etc and you have no idea in the world how you ended up there. This is a very sure indication that you are drinking far too much. You may have experienced one or more black-outs over the course of your drinking. It is the body's way of telling you that something is wrong. It's probably the most important warning sign that you will get. It is crazy and frightening to hear youngsters condoning it, "I was out of it last night, don't remember a thing, it was great crack!". If you think that drinking yourself into oblivion or not remembering anything is great fun you would want to seriously start confronting your drinking problem.

If you suffer from depression or are lonely, grieving, being bullied, experiencing suicidal thoughts or if there are sexual issues, drinking alcohol will only make all these things worse. Okay, you might think that you are happy for a few hours but it is a well known fact that alcohol is a depressant and it will only make matters worse. It is so important to know that. Initially, alcohol will make you more talkative, relaxed and maybe a bit hyper and energetic. Alcohol removes inhibitions, like when you go out to a club you feel all tensed up first and after a few drinks you dont care what anyone thinks, after a good few more you end up making a complete idiot of yourself and maybe ending up fightening or doing something that you will regret. No one wants that. Your worth more than that! Never give alcohol a chance to abuse you because that is exactly what it wi...
