Recovery Program Q & A

What is addiction?

Addiction is a brain disorder that develops from the use of drugs or alcohol. Not everyone who uses drugs or alcohol develops an addiction.

However, you may enjoy how the drug or alcohol makes you feel and think you have full control over your use. Over time, you may find that you need to use more and more of the drug to get the same pleasurable results.

When you continue to use drugs or alcohol in excess, it changes your brain, which affects your behavior, mood, and ability to make good decisions.

If you attempt to stop using the drug or alcohol, you may experience withdrawal symptoms, such as pain, nausea, vomiting, or shaking.

Healing your brain from addiction takes time and requires your commitment and a team of medical professionals who understand the disease aspect of addiction.

Dr. Eaton is an addiction specialist and offers a comprehensive and personalized medical recovery program to help you get over your addiction.

What is a recovery program?

If Dr. Eaton has concerns about withdrawal symptoms and your health, he may recommend an inpatient program to support your detox. Once discharged, he can manage your recovery program.
