West Midtown Medical Group has over 40 years of experience in substance abuse treatment and has helped thousands of people to enjoy a life that is full, healthy and in recovery.
Addiction is a chronic disease that affects the brain, and over time substance abuse will change the very structure of the brain. Scientists well understand that opiate and alcohol addiction is a metabolic disease that causes physical changes on a cellular level. However, healing is possible.
The knowledge that addiction is a disease informs our treatment approach at West Midtown Medical Group. We know that diseases affect people in different ways and that there is no “one-size fits all” treatment. Every individual is unique and each treatment approach must be custom-tailored to the fit each person and their experience.
Ancient philosophers told us that our mind and bodies are one. New research in modern medicine is helping us to understand that the philosophers were right. The way we think and feel has a profound affect on our bodies and our health, and our emotional and spiritual health impacts the chemicals in our bodies.
