Former Assumptions on Addiction

The last century of substance abuse rehabilitation rested on the premise that patients struggling with addiction were healthy, normal individuals who had made life choices that lead to their chemical dependency. Based on contemporary research, we recognize that "substance abuse" doesn't accurately describe what we now know. Addiction is a brain disease.

Addiction involves a faulty reward system in the brain related to the neurotransmitter dopamine that controls motivation, focus, and enjoyment. Many people with a poor dopamine signal experience an imbalance that may push them to self-medicate with alcohol or drugs to feel better.

Unlike other treatment programs, we treat your underlying condition by using The Lake Wellness Way. The traditional acute care inpatient models of treatment fail to help people suffering from addiction because symptoms are only temporarily suppressed. The underlying primary illness remains untreated which leads to relapse.

What is The Lake Wellness Way?

A Different Approach

Our revolutionary approach to addiction treatment is the result of dissatisfaction with standard treatments that failed to help many addiction patients. Lake Wellness Center utilizes a treatment method that uses proprietary medical and clinical monitoring to collect scientific data from patients, which helps in customizing their treatment.

Stabilizing Patients

At Lake Wellness Center, we use these innovations with our patients to address the addiction, stabilize any unpleasant physical symptoms of detox, and treat their addiction-related complications. Once a patient's condition is stabilized, our program offers a unique long-term plan to keep the addiction in remission.

The Lake Wellness Way isn't drug rehab. Lake Wellness Center provides outpatient programs that use genetic testing, disease monitoring, the latest medications, and therapy as a method for treating addiction.
