ADDICTION EDUCATION

Our Addiction Education component teaches clients about the invisible physiological and biological triggers that are activated whenever drugs and alcohol are introduced to their systems. By learning about and understanding these triggers, clients gain valuable ammunition in their battles with addiction.

 

Men love to learn about how stuff works…to achieve a clear and precise understanding of how the inner workings, the pieces and parts inside that cannot be seen by the naked eye, interact and function together.

For men in recovery at THR, our Addiction Education component teaches them about the invisible physiological and biological triggers that are activated whenever drugs and alcohol are introduced to their systems. By learning about and understanding these triggers and the impulses that they create, our residents gain valuable ammunition in their battles with addiction.

This priceless knowledge, delivered in a classroom setting by the THR team of Addiction Counselors, related to how the human brain reacts to the chemical properties carried by drugs and alcohol provides our residents with a keen awareness, the ability to recognize dangers in the road ahead and options for steering around those dangers.

In recovery, as in any struggle, “ knowledge is power “. It is our mission at THR, through our Addiction Education component, to arm our residents with the most current and up-to-date information available, along with guidance for making the most of that knowledge as they progress through the THR program and on into their new clean and sober lives
