Nearly half of Americans know someone with a problem with substance dependence. These numbers are easy to read and forget unless that number represents a person we love – a father, mother, brother, sister, son or daughter. Unlike many other illnesses, addictions carry a stigma, which makes treatment and recovery very difficult. No other disease goes untreated to the extent addiction does. The shortage of treatment is costly in terms of dollars and the quality of life. When we lose a person to this disease, we lose a contribution of talent to the community. We lose the personal, emotional and financial support for a family.
Addiction used to be viewed as an acute illness, one that could be “cured” overnight. As treatment services evolved, an understanding that addiction is a long-term, chronic, relapsing illness developed. With this understanding guiding treatment, the success rates rose to levels comparable to those associated with the treatment of other chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and asthma. Because addiction has so many dimensions and disrupts so many aspects of an individual’s life, treatment is never simple. Treatment must help the person stop using drugs and maintain a drug-and alcohol-free lifestyle while achieving productive functioning in the family, at work and in society. For more information please call us at 573.875.8880. Phoenix Health Programs has been tobacco free longer than any other treatment center in Missouri and is committed to treating ALL addictions.
To achieve CARF (Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities – http://www.carf.org/home/) accreditation in the summer of 2013, Phoenix Health Programs completed a rigorous peer review process and demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that our programs are of the highest quality. Accreditation shows that we meet internationally recognized standards for quality services.
CARF is an independent, not-for-profit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served.
