Peak Addiction Recovery

Peak Addiction Recovery is a treatment center offering freedom from the bondage of alcohol and drug addiction.

Through professional, comprehensive treatment services – from inpatient treatment to outpatient care – we offer solutions to a deadly disease.

Peak Addiction Recovery offers affordable, proven, and effective treatment within the following levels of care:

  • Inpatient Treatment/Rehabilitation.
  • Transitional Living.
  • Transitional Living with aftercare services

Peak Addiction Recovery believes that recovery occurs on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels – and does not happen overnight.  Our treatment model is thorough, loving, proven, and most importantly; statistically effective.

Untreated addiction will typically kill the individual addict or alcoholic. We believe that addiction is a clinically diagnosed illness and that true freedom from this disease comes from complete sobriety and relearning how to live life on life’s terms.

Going to treatment is an enormous step towards a lifetime of recovery, but an addict cannot just go to treatment to receive the “cure” for their addiction.

This is it – the “jumping off” point – the result of the disintegration of the soul.  The point where your body has no fight left.  This is the moment of the game where there are no more plays.  No more outs.  No more options.  This is the place where every addict and alcoholic eventually gets to.  The thought of living our lives in a “normal” way is unthinkable – more unthinkable than continuing on the path we are on.

So when we ask for help, it doesn’t come from a place of fear… it doesn’t come from a place of sadness.  It comes from the core of our soul.  The core of our being that was once full of life… but has now become cold.  The place where nothing lives anymore except the truth.

The truth now… as you enter treatment… to get help… is simply this:  If you do not allow this help to work – you will most certainly die from your disease of addiction.  This isn’t fun anymore.  The fun elements of using and drinking are long gone.  This is a process that has been proven over and over again to save lives.  Please, embrace the process, learn about your affliction… and begin a new life.  The path in front of you is full of hopes and dreams that your mind has not even conceived yet.

How It Works

Treatment begins with a thorough assessment and evaluation process that produces a thorough individual treatment plan for each client.  Treatment consists of numerous structured activities designed to implement healing.  These include significant individual counseling, behavioral and motivational therapy, medical care to address co-existing conditions, relapse prevention planning, yoga and exercise therapy, appropriate nutrition, community re-entry planning, 12-step introduction and meetings, spiritual discovery, step-down sober living, after patient care, out-patient therapy and much, much more.

Receiving viable, proven treatment for addiction isn’t free.  Sadly, often times when an addict or alcoholic is truly at a place to receive treatment and help they have exhausted their financial resources and no longer have insurance.  From its beginnings, Peak Addiction Recovery has been committed to serving these unfunded and uninsured clients.   Peak Addiction Recovery firmly believes that an alcoholic/addict will never fully reach their full potential in life without treating their disease, and believes that everyone deserves a chance to get better – with or without the ability to pay for treatment.

It takes both time and money to offer quality addiction services to those typically unable to pay for treatment – your donation to Peak Addiction Recovery ensures that we can continue to help these individuals in need.  Not only does every dollar go directly to provide treatment for those in need, but eventually saves our community over seven dollars in future emergency services, crime and jails, accidents, and health care costs.

Why We Are Here

Drug and alcohol addiction impacts the lives of 63% of all Americans. There are more deaths and disabilities each year in the U.S. from substance abuse than from any other cause. Most alcoholics and addicts cannot achieve long-term sobriety by themselves, and over 90% will die from their disease.  We are here to help.

Know that there are a lot of distinctive types of addiction. It isn’t always drug addiction or alcoholism; common actions like eating, shopping, or even just getting some exercise can turn into objects of addiction for some of us. Just ask yourself if it really is taking more of something to make you feel good, if you’re concealing things or lying in relation to what you’re doing, and if you feel guilty or ashamed; if so you’re experiencing the warning signs of addiction and would be well advised to get some counseling. You know the saying, “All things in moderation”–just be vigilant that those things will not start to dominate your existence.

Don’t hesitate to notify a buddy or trusted analyst and ask for help if you’re concerned that you may be an addict. You can regain control of your own fate and leave your dependence behind.

What is addiction

Among the many definitions and theories behind addiction, one such belief is that it is considered to be a chronic brain disorder. Although treatable for most people, this brain disorder affects the person’s ability to control their habit. In other words, regardless of the outcome of this, whether it is financial ruin, ill health, or even worse, death, that person cannot stop themselves from using the substance. But what is meaning behind the term?

The term “addiction” can be described as a physical or psychological dependency, or more simply put, an obsession or compulsive need. Examples of this may be compulsive eating, excessive gambling, or even the commonly known problem of alcoholism. However, the medical term for it is when the body is dependant upon a substance or behavior to “function” properly.

Furthermore, the result of not having that substance can lead to withdrawal, a state in which your body craves the substance or behavior and will react in a way that will force the person to continue. Reactions to the addiction can be severe physical and psychological illnesses. What’s more, an addict can become this way even when the substance isn’t illegal like heroin.

Many prescription drugs have highly addictive qualities. What may start as the need to control pain can turn into the drug addiction itself causing dependency, and in the end, more pain if it is not continued. But what about other addiction like problems out there?

There are many different issues that people associate with addiction but that the medical community does not. Such problems like gambling and eating disorders are commonly associated with the term. These psychological dependencies deal with the compulsion to engage in these behaviors. But regardless of the actual type of addiction, the course and causes are often the same.

In all of these instances, the brain and body react to the stimuli. Over time, as the behavior or substance is used and practiced, the body and mind build up a tolerance which enhances the need. It goes from a want to feel better, or more in control, to feeling that your survival depends on continuing. But how does one realize when they have an addiction?

One of the symptoms of a person who is addicted is the development of tolerance. If you find that you need to engage in the activity or use the substance more often or more of it to get the same feeling, then you may have developed an addiction. Furthermore, it is also when you stop using or engaging in the activity, and your body shows signs.

These signs can be painful cramps, vomiting, and the feeling of being on edge, and are called withdrawal symptoms. Also, most times there is a denial process where the person cannot admit they have a problem, perhaps pointing out that they only do it for enjoyment and relaxation.

The hardest part for these people can often be in admitting they have a problem. Once a person can admit to their addiction, then and only then can they begin the road to recovery.
