Alcohol can take over a person's life, it can have a great impact on the individuals life as well as the lives of the loved ones around them. If you're close to a friend, parent, brother, or sister who has a drug problem, it will affect you in ways you may not easily realize, and then you can get the same symptoms and problems, even if you don't do drugs or drink.

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 A Drug, A Disease

Jennifer Bulbrook

Friday, September 14, 2007 Alcohol is a drug, it can be a deadly drug if not consumed properly or in a mature manner. Alcohol is as dangerous and just as addicting as cocaine, marijuana or ecstasy.

My name is Jennifer Bulbrook, a Child and Youth Worker who has had the honor and privilege to work with youth in our community. When asking children of this generation to list names of drugs, very rarely will they name alcohol. I have ran drug programs and have came to the realization that many children and adolescents do not consider alcohol a drugand why because it is legal, you can but it at a local beer or liquor store.

Alcohol can take over a person's life, it can have a great impact on the individuals life as well as the lives of the loved ones around them. If you're close to a friend, parent, brother, or sister who has a drug problem, it will affect you in ways you may not easily realize, and then you can get the same symptoms and problems, even if you don't do drugs or drink.

Anyone can become addicted to alcohol, it does not matter how mature, responsible you are, your financial status, or what you do for a living. In order to help with one's addiction, one must identify the underlying issues. People drink, because, to start, it makes them feel good or erases feelings, but that's only the beginning. All drugs change the chemicals we have naturally in our brains and when the brain starts changing, adding to, subtracting from its own chemicals, that's a problem because those chemicals control our feelings and actions. Yes, alcohol may help one relax for awhile but the way the chemicals we all have in our brains work, you'll need more to get the same feelings of relaxation over time, then still more and the problems won't disappear, they'll get worse because you're avoiding them!

I am not only speaking as a professional but as someone who has personally experienced alcohols deadly effects. I am 25 years old with two small children and for the past seven years I have been struggling with my addiction to alcohol. Alcohol had taken over six years of my life. At first I would only have to consume a couple of drinks to take my pain away but soon I was drinking a 26er, sometimes more everyday, turning to the bottle when ever things were not going well, when I would have feelings of stress, anger, or depression. During the week, I was what you call a "closet drinker" where I would wait for everyone in my household to go to bed then I would crack open the bottle. On the weekend I would go out to the bar where I would get so polluted with the poison of alcohol that I would black out, I would wake up in strange places with strange people surrounding me. Alcohol would take away my feelings of depression but most of the times those feelings would resurface and hit me ten times harder and I became abusive (physically and emotionally) to those around me. Bigger yet, my main priority beca...
