How We Define Addiction

Guardian Recovery Network programs are built on the Disease Model of Addiction. This model defines addiction — to any substance — as a “chronic, relapsing brain disease.” This phrase was coined and popularized by the former director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse and a leading neurologist in the field of addiction treatment, Alan I. Leshner.

In his extensive neurological studies on addiction, Leshner found that the brain of an addict or alcoholic fires differently than that of a normal person. The brain of an addict or alcoholic comes to prioritize its need for drugs and alcohol over all other survival instincts, including those for food, water, sex and shelter. This is why addicts and alcoholics often will go to any lengths to keep their addictions alive against all rational reasons to stop. This is also why addiction is so baffling to the family and loved ones of addicts and alcoholics who can’t make sense of why their loved one won’t “just quit.” Once an individual is addicted, brain scans show that the brain is essentially hijacked, rendering it next to impossible to stop without help.

The American Society of Addiction Medicine defines addiction as “a treatable, chronic medical disease involving complex interactions among brain circuits, genetics, the environment, and an individual’s life experiences. People with addiction use substances or engage in behaviors that become compulsive and often continue despite harmful consequences.“

Alcoholics Anonymous echoes the Disease Model in its definition of addiction as a “three-fold illness” consisting of a physical allergy, a mental obsession and a spiritual malady.

All definitions of addiction point to the truth that addiction must be treated holistically and on multiple levels — physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Guardian Recovery Network’s programming is specifically designed to address all these aspects of addiction.

Types of Treatment

The following levels of treatment are strategically designed to provide an entire continuum of care, one level leading to the next. Each level of care can, however, be utilized individually.

Medical Detox

This phase of recovery is the first vital step to getting on the road to recovery. If an individual has been abusing drugs or alcohol for any length of time, their body and brain has become accustomed to operating with the substance. When this substance is suddenly yanked from the central nervous system, individuals experience a range of withdrawal symptoms that can be agonizing — even life-threatening — if not treated properly. Guardian detoxification facilities make withdrawal as safe, comfortable and pain-free as possible. Our medical detox facilities offer 24/7 medical supervision, medication assisted treatment, therapy, holistic treatments (such as yoga, meditation and acupuncture), case management and aftercare planning. After an individual is physically stabilized (which generally takes between 3 to 14 days), we help them transfer into the next appropriate level of care to continue their journey of recovery.

Residential Inpatient Treatment

Residential inpatient at Guardian facilities involves intensive clinical & medical interventions in a highly supervised setting. Clients will live and receive care in the same facility and will have constant supervision and care monitoring. Residential treatment generally lasts approximately 28 to 60 days. This part of treatment involves a wide range of individual, family and group therapies, educational workshops, life-skills training, recovery meetings and holistic treatment methods.

Partial Hospitalization (PHP)

PHP is the next step following a residential inpatient setting. In partial hospitalization, clients generally live in a more homestyle setting separate from the treatment facility. Clients are transported back and forth to the treatment center to participate in approximately 5-6 days a week of therapy, starting in the morning and ending in the evening with a lunch break. On their days off, clients slowly begin to learn how to reintegrate into the world-at-large. During this phase, clients can also participate in outside, public recovery meetings with other clients and staff.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)

This form of treatment is generally seen as a transition step for individuals as they begin to be in the world again. Individuals can attend work or school while attending groups a few times a week and either living at home or in a sober living environment. This form of treatment can be entered after a medical detox, residential inpatient, partial hospitalization program or, for some select individuals with more mild cases of addiction, as a stand-alone treatment method.

    Picking the Right Level of Treatment

    Which level of treatment to seek is sometimes a difficult question to answer. The answer depends on the severity of an individual’s addiction and their current life circumstances. Guardian Recovery Network’s compassionate and empathetic treatment advisors are here to help answer all your questions and help you determine what path is right for you or your loved one.

    While addictions can appear outwardly different based on the substance an individual is using, addictions largely stem from the same conditions. Guardian Recovery Network excels at treating the roots of addiction to help individuals thrive in recovery and prevent relapse. Contact us today to start the recovery journey.
