Community Services Counseling believes that drug addiction is a treatable disorder. Through treatment that we tailor to individual needs, clients learn to control their condition and live normal, productive lives. Like people with diabetes or heart disease, people in treatment for drug addiction learn behavioral changes and often take medications as part of their treatment regimen.
Our behavior therapies include counseling, psychotherapy, support groups, and family therapy.
Many clients require other services as well, such as medical, mental health services and HIV prevention services. Wraparound Services are offered in
conjunction with Idaho Department of Vocational Rehabilitation for employment support, psychiatric examinations and treatment medications. We work closely with the Idaho Department of Health and
Welfare, Children and Family Services in attempts to reacquaint clients with their children. Additionally, we provide services to Felony and Misdemeanor Probation Services to help clients control their lives with chemical dependency and cognitive issues.

Our Facilities

A home environment is important to the recovery of our clients. At Agape, clients find home in three, turn of the 20th Century, Victorian Homes located in the heart of Old North Knoxville. These homes are located within walking distance to numerous job opportunities, public transportation stops, and other necessary amenities.

Each of these historic structures can accomodate eight women in the intensive residential treatment program. These women are provided with shelter, food, clothing, transportation, and all of the counseling and programming necessary for a successful foundation for recovery.
Our Programs

We serve over 100 women a year in our residential treatment program. This is our most intensive program and provides clients all of their basic needs, combined with intensive counseling and training to reach their goals of sobriety.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a relatively new program designed to provide an intensive treatment program for those who have a suitable home environment conducive to sobriety. Women in this program have proven the capability of remaining drug and alcohol free in their home environment, but who are not yet capable of sustaining that sobriety without intensive support and counseling.

Treatment at Agape continues long after the program is over, and is just the beginning of a lifelong journey. Upon completion, clients continue to receive care in our After Care program. The After Care Program offers support to clients as they assimilate back into society, and allows for mentoring opportunities with other clients.
Our Growth

Our agency is continually striving to improve our programs and provide better service to our clients. Some of our improvements in the past year include:

Implementation of the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Hiring a Community Development Coordinator
Acquisition of a new van to transport clients
Revamping of all marketing materials

If you are interested in helping Agape continue to serve women in need through financial or other support, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Communication of the Addict Brain

Karla Kiecolt-Blasdell

Thursday, January 03, 2008

The distinction between physical dependence and addiction is separated using the term physical dependence for a narrower, older definition and the new definition of addiction. Physical dependence is mostly described as a simple cellular adaption of a substance to the body. It especially concen- trates on the neurons as the communication center and the chemical which the brain is influenced by. In contrast, addiction is known to be a complex, lifelong disease of one''s entire self.

In studying human brain activity we have learned communication and impulses are carried from one cell to another. There are billions of nerve cells in the brain. These are called neurons. Most neurons have one branch that carry impulses away from the cell body. This branch is called an axon.

The outer part of the neuron where the branching of the axon begins is called the dendrite. A single neuron may have as many as 10,000 dendrites.

The dendrites then can receive signals from the axons from thousands of different neurons. Simply breaking down how neurons work in the brain focuses on the synapse, the space in the brain where the impulses pass between the cells. The synapse is tiny and continuously active. The activity is affected by both abusive drugs and psychoactive medications. The chemicals enter the bloodstream, pass through the blood-brain barrier and become part of the chemical bath that reaches all the synapses in the brain.

Psychoactive externally supplied chemicals inhibit transmission between particular groups of axons and dendrites.

Neurons primarily serve excitatory or inhibitory roles in the brain.

Abusive drugs fit both of these categories. Amphetamines and cocaine fall into the stimulant category and are primarily excitatory, whereas, alcohol and opiates fall into the depressant category and are primarily inhibitory.

Addiction is more than a chemical reaction in the brain. It also relies on three types of behavior-affecting stimuli described by psychologists. They

are: positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, and punishment. A good feeling is positive reinforcement, relief of a painful experience is con- sidered a negative reinforcement. The punishment is a consequence of a negative behavior. All three of these behaviors have direct application to the experience of addiction. Abused drugs directly affect the synapses in the pleasure centers of the brain. There are many activities and substances that impact the pleasure-producing neurons. When referring to addiction it principally involves two features: loss of control (unmanageable), dis- honesty (denial). Without these two features addiction cannot exist.

People who are addicted almost act as if they are hypnotized. They cannot tell you why they continue their use of drugs and alcohol despite the negative impact on their lives. Even though the loss over pleasure- driven behaviors is alw...
