Addiction Recovery Support in Newtown, PA

If you are a recovering addict in Newtown, PA and surrounding areas, understanding that recovery involves both your body and your mind will help you on your personal path to a sober future.

Addiction is a multi-factorial disease having psychosocial, genetic, spiritual and metabolic components.  The most significant mechanism of this disease process is manifest through neurophysiological insult within the Brain Reward Cascade Model known as Reward Deficiency Syndrome. (RDS) 

The human brain produces a number of "feel good" chemicals -from serotonin and dopamine, to norepinephrine, GABA and endorphins-- all of which work together to produce feelings of well-being.  When levels of these "feel good" chemicals are low or blocked from the brain's receptors; stress, pain, discomfort and agitation are the result.  This condition is called "Reward Deficiency Syndrome" (RDS).

Those suffering from RDS are unable to produce an adequate feeling of well-being and consequently often self-medicate with substances that help raise the levels of "feel good" chemicals in their system-- if only temporarily.  It helps them feel good and function better with less stress, agitation and emotional pain.  These substances often include junk foods, sugars, chocolate, alcohol, nicotine or stimulants.  Unfortunately, self medication only provides temporary relief while bringing with it more long-term consequences such as addictions and health problems.
