It is complex in its work and runs from the brain down through the face down the throat and into the abdomen. Its length and complexity make it important to the well-being of all individuals.Also known as the 10th cranial nerve or the X cranial nerve, the vagus nerve is made up of parasympathetic fibers. The nerve possesses a pair of sensory ganglia, which is nerve tissue that carry sensory impulses. The two sensory ganglia are known as the inferior and superior ganglia. Overall, there are 12 cranial nerves in all individuals and come in twos, just like the sensory and inferior ganglia, and link the rest of the body to the brain.The vagal response reduces the stress an individual experiences. It lowers heart rate and blood pressure, making people feel more relaxed after a stress-inducing situation. Functions of the brain can be changed due to the vagal response along with digestion.What function does the vagus nerve serve?The vagus nerve is separated into two parts: somatic and visceral components. The somatic component deals with sensations felt by the skin or muscles. Visceral components are sensations that occur in the body’s organs.The vagus nerve is part of the parasympathetic system and is considered the leader of the system. The parasympathetic system makes up a portion of the involuntary nervous system, also known as the autonomic nervous system. The involuntary nervous system controls vital bodily functions including:Heat rateBlood pressurePupil dilationSweatingDigestion of foodBody temperatureThe parasympathetic nervous system is in charge of rest and relaxation. If it is stimulated by actions such as deep breathing, then the relaxing feeling produced by the parasympathetic nervous system’s actions are canceled out. The fight or flight sensation is then activated in the body.Research has found that the body notices a person’s breathing and the heart rate adapts to it in a response to air in-take. As a person breathes in, the body’s lung stretch receptors acquire and process information before sending it to the vagus nerve and up to the brain. The brain sends messages back down the vagus nerve as individuals breathe out. More: the show (
Codeine Addiction Codeine mimics the actions of endogenous opioids by binding to the opioid receptors at many sites within the central nervous system (CNS). Stimulation of mu-subtype opioid receptors results in a decrease in the release of nociceptive neurotransmitters such as substance P, GABA, dopamine, and noradrenaline. Codeine: What is it? Codeine falls into two categories of drugs. It is both an opioid and an antitussive. Codeine can be used to treat pain in an individual. When it is used to change the way in which the body feels pain, it is classed as an opioid. Codeine is also used in syrups and medications to suppress a cough. When used to suppress coughing, codeine is classed as an antitussive. Codeine can reduce activity in the part of the brain where the coughing response occurs. Codeine can also be found in combination with other medications including acetaminophen, aspirin, carisoprodol, and promethazine-codeine. These are often found in cold and cough medications. Codeine is powerful and can help an individual manage their flu and/or cold symptoms. The drug cannot treat the symptoms of colds and/or flus nor can it eliminate them. There is a common misconception that some powerful cold medicines can wipe away the symptoms an individual feels when under the weather. This is not true. There are some brand names used for codeine that include: Brontex (codeine, guaifenesin) Guiatuss AC (codeine, guaifenesin) Nalex AC (brompheniramine, codeine) Phenergan VC with Codeine (codeine, phenylephrine, promethazine) Robitussin AC (codeine, guaifenesin) Vanacof (codeine, dexchlorpheniramine, phenylephrine) What does codeine addiction look like? High doses of codeine can produce dangerous side effects. An individual can become addicted to the drug by using it routinely. It is likely an increase in dosage will occur over time. Codeine is like other opioids which depress the central nervous system, with users feeling relaxed, euphoric, drowsy, and calm as their heart rate slows. Most individuals become addicted to codeine by using it casually to begin with. Codeine Factsheet: Support the show (
Trazodone AddictionTrazodone is an common antidepressant sold and prescribed under brand names such as Desyrel, Desyrel, Dividose, and Oleptro. is used to treat depressive disorders with or without a manifestation of generalized or acute anxiety. Trazodone is also used off-label to treat alcoholism and sleep disorders.Trazodone is known by a number of brand names including Desyrel, Dividose, Oleptro, and Desyrel. All of these brand names simply offer users the same antidepressant medication. Doctors prescribe Trazodone to patients suffering from depression. Trazodone isn’t simply used for mild or low forms of the mental disorder. The drug is prescribed to patients suffering from major bouts of depression that they struggle to overcome. Oftentimes, patients suffer anxiety along with depression and Trazodone can help both disorders. Along with depression, Trazodone can be prescribed to patients off-label to treat insomnia and alcoholism.Like other antidepressants, Trazodone is extremely addictive and users can become dependent on the medication. Trazodone is known as a selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor (SSRI). Drugs that fall into the SSRI category alter the brain’s chemical balance. Serotonin regulates emotions and people with low levels of it can experience depression and/or other mental disorders.Trazodone enables users to have more serotonin in their brains. The increased amount of serotonin enables users to be healthier and capable of overcoming disorders that produce depression, insomnia, and anxiety.How is Trazodone taken?Health practitioners can prescribe Trazodone in 25 mg, 50 mg, 100 mg, 150 mg, and 300 mg tablets. The medication is then taken orally and daily dosage is based on the user’s response to the medication. Patients should take Trazodone with food.Although addiction and dependency can be created by taking Trazodone, it is claimed to be relatively safe for users. Research has found Trazodone to be very effective in the treatment of depression and sleep disorders such as insomnia. Misuse is often the reason patients can experience addiction, withdrawal when they stop taking it, and death if they overdose on it.Although Trazodone is said to be safe, there is a risk of dependency on the drug. Patients who misuse Trazodone and do not take it as prescribed, addiction can be created.Trazodone addiction withdrawalOnce a patient stops taking Trazodone, they can experience signs of depression that look similar to depression and anxiety. When medication is stopped suddenly, these signs increase. Due to stopping Trazodone, individuals have a deficiency of serotonin in their brain. The body should adjust to the lack of serotonin but until it does, individuals can feel uncomfortable.Signs of Trazodone addiction withdrawalDizziness/Vertigo/Difficulty walkingLightheadednessNausea/VomitingJitteryThoughts of suicideLack of concentrationHeadachesShort temper/IrritabilityCold/Goosebumps/ChillsDepersonalizationTrazodone users can avoid withdrawal by taking the medication as prescribed. Patients shouldn’t miss a dose as this can trigger withdrawal symptoms. Trazodone addiction withdrawal symptoms can begin just 24 hours after the last dose was taken and continue for up to three weeks. Tapering off the medication is the best way to end taking it.Trazodone FactsheetSupport the show (
Oxycontin Addiction Oxy is a semi-synthetic opioid with an agonist activity on mu, kappa and delta receptors. Equivalence with regard to morphine is 1:2. Its effect commences one hour after administration and lasts for 12 h in the controlled-release formulation. Most of the drug is metabolized in the liver, while the rest is excreted by the kidney along with its metabolites. The two main metabolites are oxymorphone and noroxycodone. OxyContin Clinic: OxyContin is an extremely addictive and deadly drug. Over the last 25 years, OxyContin has become a go-to prescription pain-relief medication prescribed by doctors. However, due to its addictive nature, patients have become dependent on the medication. OxyContin has become a drug of choice as a highly efficient muscular-skeletal relaxant, acquired through legal and illegal means. OxyContin is an opioid derived from oxycodone. Due to its wide spread use as both a street drug and prescription pain medication, an opioid crisis has developed in several countries around the world. Since many patients, especially 20 years ago, received OxyContin through a prescription from their doctor, they had no idea just how addictive the medication is. It is prescribed for individuals suffering from extreme pain. In most cases, individuals have had no relief from non-opioid medications. Download OxyContin Addiction FactsheetOxyContin should only be used for constant, around the clock pain management. However, too often people have become dependent on it from using it for minor pain or recreation. Why is OxyContin Prescribed? When taken, OxyContin releases oxycodone over time to reduce pain and relax muscles. Some of the pain and injuries that doctors prescribe OxyContin for are: Arthritis Pain due to cancer treatment Long-term/chronic pain that individuals suffer around the clock The drug contains around 10 to 80 milligrams of oxycodone. The time-release formula in OxyContin allows for a maximum of 12 hours of chronic pain relief. Individuals who become addicted to OxyContin can become tolerant of the medication and take more pills throughout the 12-hour window. Patients with chronic pain praise OxyContin for its time-release formula allowing them to deal with pain throughout a day. Side Effects of OxyContin Some patients can experience an allergic reaction to OxyContin. Hives are a common reaction, but some people can also develop breathing difficulties, swelling in the face, mouth, and throat. Users should seek emergency medical help if they experience an allergic reaction. Opioid medications relax muscles and slow down breathing. Users can experience shallow breath and even stop breathing. Death can occur if an individual stops breathing after taking OxyContin. If an individual experiences any of these side effects, emergency medical personnel should be contacted immediately: Noisy breathing or sighing Shallow breath Stop breathing Slow/reduced heart rate Weak pulse Light-headed and/or feel like blacking out Confusion/dizziness Change in thoughts and/or behavior Convulsions and/or seizures Low cortisol levels Support the show (
Fentanyl Addiction is a powerful synthetic opioid with analgesic and anesthetic properties. Fentanyl selectively binds to and activates the mu-receptor in the central nervous system (CNS) thereby mimicking the effects of endogenous opiates.Fentanyl is up to 100 times more potent than Pharmaceutical grade Morphine. It is a schedule II prescription drug usually prescribed for severe, disabling pain and pain after surgery.Fentanyl Rehab: https://physisrecovery.rehabIn 2016, it was claimed that the drug Fentanyl is deadlier than heroin. It was a strong statement, but one that may not be too far off from being true. Fentanyl may not be a drug that is commonly known by the average person. Those that are familiar with it know that it is a very powerful opioid that users can become addicted to very quickly.When used appropriately, Fentanyl is a pain reliever that can be extremely affective helping patients. However, Fentanyl misuse can lead to long-term addiction and potentially death.Fentanyl and other synthetic opioids are the most common substances involved with overdose drug deaths in the United States of America. Over the course of a seven-year time span (2010 to 2017), the number of overdose deaths involving Fentanyl went from 14.3 percent to 59.8 percent.There exists a very is a small margin between the therapeutic dose and toxic dose, meaning that it’s very easy to overdose. Fentanyl acts rapidly inside the body and can cause respiratory distress and death much quicker than other drugs.What does Fentanyl do to the brain?Fentanyl allows individuals to feel pain relief because it binds to opioid receptors. These receptors are found in the brain where pain and emotions are controlled. Like any other drug, the brain evolves and adapts to the drug being taken. Sensitivity to the drug is then reduced and the tolerance to increases.Fentanyl causes brain dysfunction when taken for long periods. The dopamine receptors in the brain malfunction in individuals who misuse opioids. It makes users incapable of living without opioids.Fentanyl’s affects the brain in several ways: Extreme happiness Sleepiness/drowsiness Nausea/vomiting Uncertainty/confusion Constipation Lethargic/sedation Breathing problems Coma/unconsciousnessFentanyl Addiction Factsheet: though Fentanyl is one of the most potent drugs in the World, it’s not the most potent opioid on the planet. A derivative of Fentanyl called Carfentanil is mainly used to tranquilize elephants and large mammals weighing over 7,000 kgs.Carfentanil is estimated to be 10,000 times stronger than morphine and has zero medical use for humans.Treatment for Fentanyl Addiction?Experts stress there is no quick solution to Fentanyl addiction. Individuals cannot recover overnight and begin living life the way they did prior to taking it. It is a long road to recovery from Fentanyl addiction. The recovery process from opioid addiction typically takes one full year. Many recovering opioid users participate in medical maintenance schemes. The programs allow users to wean themselves off of Fentanyl or other opioids by taking methadone or buprenorphine. Medical maintenance programs are overseen by doctors whose job it is to help individuals get clean.Support the show (
Xanax Addiction is a widely prescribed and highly effective medicine that is used to treat anxiety. A variety of anxiety disorders can be treated with the use of Xanax including depression induced anxiety. Doctors have prescribed Xanax to patients to treat panic disorders, fears of situations and destinations, embarrassment, and helplessness.Is Xanax addictive?Xanax is highly addictive to patients regardless of using it correctly. The drug is a benzodiazepine medication and is fast-acting when consumed by patients. It can alter the brain significantly in just a short timeframe. Xanax is considered one of the most addictive medications in the benzodiazepine family. Long-term use and misuse of the drug makes it possible for people to become addicted to it.Although recreational users and individuals simply wanting to “take the edge off” misuse Xanax, it is more often misused by people with anxiety disorders. These individuals simply use the drug in an attempt to treat their anxiety issues.Xanax is so powerful and potent that its use can lead to dependency even if taken in a medical fashion. The first sign of dependency that users will notice is tolerance to the drug. Like other drugs, Xanax’s power stops working whether taken as prescribed or recreationally. Anxiety sufferers will experience symptoms once more and believe the only way to reduce them is to take larger doses of Xanax. The brain becomes more reliant on Xanax forming addiction and dependency.Xanax addiction creates a craving for the drug. It is a mental addiction that prevents the user from taking their mind off of the drug until they consume it once more. Individuals should refrain from quitting cold turkey and seek professional medical help to stop their dependency on Xanax. Quitting Xanax is incredibly difficult due to the control it has on a person’s mind.Withdrawal from Xanax can be stressful and explosive. It can affect the mind greatly as the brain becomes dependent on the drug. Individuals can experience periods of insomnia, depression, paranoia, and irritability. Medical detox allows medical professionals to treat most symptoms of Xanax withdrawal.Up to 44% of benzodiazepine users become addicted and dependent on the drug they take, according to the Journal of Addictive Behaviors. Does Xanax cause physical addiction?Xanax has a strong effect on the mind and users struggle to stop thoughts of the drug. Physical addiction is also possible for individuals who misuse Xanax. Physical withdrawal symptoms also occur when individuals stop using Xanax. Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms include: Blurred vision Continuous sweating Convulsions/shakes Vomiting Nausea HeadachesAs a person’s body becomes used to the drug, physical addiction develops and becomes more apparent. A lack of Xanax in the body can cause a person to feel achy and in pain. The more the body processes the drug out, the more serious the physical symptoms are. Individuals often try to detox without medical help. This can send many people to the emergency room as they are unable to cope with the intense withdrawal symptoms. Over-the-counter drugs can be used to treat some symptoms but not all. A medically supervised detox is preferable either in a hospital setting or a specialist Xanax rehab facility.Xanax FactsheetSupport the show (
 Vicodin Pharmacology Vicodin contains 500 milligrams of acetaminophen and five milligrams of hydrocodone. It comes in several forms including syrup, capsule, and tablet. Doctors prescribe Vicodin for individuals suffering from various forms of pain. Vicodin is a popular painkiller that has been glamorized over the years by films, television shows, and literature. Adding to Vicodin’s popularity is the use of it by celebrities in their private lives and at one time, it seemed to be the prescription of choice by many doctors seeking to help patients living in pain. Unfortunately, many of the individuals who called upon Vicodin for help found themselves addicted to the painkiller. The painkiller can trace its roots back to the 1890s when the first medical use of acetaminophen was recorded. It wasn’t until 1978, however, that German pharmaceutical company Knoll combined acetaminophen with hydrocodone to create Vicodin. Overnight, a wonder painkiller drug was created and by the 1990s, it was used by everyone seeking to be free of pain to individuals looking for a prescription drug as a high. Vicodin contains 500 milligrams of acetaminophen and five milligrams of hydrocodone. It comes in several forms including syrup, capsule, and tablet. Doctors prescribe Vicodin for individuals suffering from various forms of pain. Originally, it was used by patients as an alternative when other options didn’t work. However, there was a time when doctors prescribed Vicodin without weighing other pain-relief options and patients grew dependent on it. Hydrocodone is sold under the brand name Vicodin, along with Norco, Lortab and others. All brands contain the same active ingredient, the opioid analgesic, oxycodone, as well as the active ingredients of Vicadin. Some people with hydrocodone addiction have an addiction to opioids that have similar effects in sufficiently large quantities, including morphine, codeine and heroin. This type of preference has both practical and psychological reasons, the researchers say. Hydrocodone binds to pain receptors in the brain, specifically known as Mu opioid receptors. If it binds to these receptors, pain signals are weakened or completely blocked. Mu opioid receptors are also responsible for the positive aspects of drug use, and when used repeatedly, the effects of opioids on the frontal cortex weaken the brain’s ability to make decisions and regulate mood. When people try to stop or reduce the use of Vicodin, they find out how dependent their bodies have become on painkillers. It also introduces the feeling of “good” sensations or euphoria caused by opioids, which also encourages people to take the drug again. How to Treat Vicodin Addiction? Individuals experiencing Vicodin dependency should speak with their doctor. Users should talk to their doctors about reducing their Vicodin consumption. Patients may be prescribed a medication to help ease potential withdrawal symptoms. Some patients may be advised to take a tapered approach to end their dependency on Vicodin. Long-term Vicodin users should seek medical detox to wean themselves off of the addictive drug. Medication-assisted treatments (MAT) are available to users seeking to end their dependence on the drug. Methadone and buprenorphine are used as replacements for opioids.

Art Therapy for AddictionArt therapy for addiction treatment involves the use of creative techniques such as drawing, painting, collages, coloring or shaping to help people express themselves artistically and to examine the psychological and emotional undertones in their art. Under the guidance of a recognized art therapist, clients can “decipher” the non-verbal messages, symbols, and metaphors that are common in these art forms, which should lead to a better understanding of their feelings and behavior so that they can solve deeper problems. Art therapy is an independent discipline that includes creative methods of expression through visual art media. Art therapy as a profession of creative art therapy has its origins in the fields of art and psychotherapy and can vary in its definition. The psychoanalytic approach was one of the earliest forms of art psychotherapy.How Can Art Therapy HelpArt therapy helps children, adolescents and adults explore their emotions, improve self-esteem, manage addiction problems, reduce stress, improve symptoms of anxiety and depression, and deal with a physical illness or disability. Art therapists work with individuals, couples, and groups in a variety of settings, including private counseling, hospitals, wellness centers, prisons, senior centers, and other community organizations. Much like Music Therapy, no artistic talent is required for the success of art therapy, since the therapeutic process is not about the artistic value of the work, but about finding associations between the creative decisions and the inner life of a client. The artwork can be used as a springboard to awaken memories and tell stories that can reveal messages and beliefs of the subconscious.What to expect in Art Therapy for AddictionAs with any form of therapy, your first session is to talk to the therapist about why you want to seek help and to find out what the therapist has to offer. Together, you create a treatment plan that creates a kind of artwork. Once you start creating, the therapist can sometimes simply watch your process as you work without interference or judgment. Art Therapy at the Worlds Best RehabsArt therapy can play an important role in the emotional and spiritual aspects of healing addiction and is offered in several of the Worlds Best Rehab programs. Depending on the program, patients can participate in art therapy once or several times a week. No two clients in treatment present with the exact same condition, which means that treatment plans have to be adapted to individual needs and recovery goals. Art therapy can be used with other forms of holistic treatment such as music therapy, animal therapy, experience therapy, yoga, meditation, acupuncture or massage. Art therapy in addiction treatment provides a productive way to deal with the stress that many experience when they continue to be sober.Support the show (

What is Music Therapy for Addiction TreatmentVarious types of therapeutic approaches have proven useful in alcohol and drug addiction rehabilitation programs, but music therapy is one that many clients may not fully understand. After all, the words ‘music therapy’ do tend to conjure images more akin to the New Age tribes than robust and effective treatment. Often clients and their families wonder what exactly is music therapy and is it just a rehab filler activity to keep clients entertained when they’re not in therapy.Music TherapyMusic Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of musical interventions to achieve individual therapeutic relationship goals by a proven specialist who has completed an approved music therapy program. Musical Therapy in a mental health or substance abuse context is a psychotherapeutic method that uses musical interaction as a means of communication and expression.The goal of musical therapy is to help people suffering from mental illness, substance abuse and process addictions, by building relationships and solving problems that may prevent them from using words. Music Therapy sessions include the use of active music creation, listening to music and discussions. This pioneering therapeutic modality has been proven to aid long term recovery from addiction and provide great relief to those suffering severe mental illness such as Schizophrenia. Additionally, musical therapy can be very successful in a teenage rehab and eating disorder setting, where young adults may find difficulty expressing their feelings with words.When people are actively addicted to drugs, alcohol, or processes, they build defense mechanisms such as rationalization, minimization, denial, and lies to continue their behavior and hide from their emotions. The creative nature of musical therapy contrasts with these fixed mindsets and can help addicts break through their rigid thought patterns. Music has a strong impact on our emotional states and can provide indirect access to different emotions and brainwaves. Therapeutically, listening and discussing music and its lyrics can help people safely explore emotions, and identify a wider range of emotional states.What does Music Therapy TreatMusic therapy offers physical, emotional, social, and cognitive benefits1 in a number of therapeutic situations, and has proven beneficial when used in certain populations that suffer from the following problems: Crisis and trauma Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Substance abuse disorders Mental Health problems  Musical therapy is also often used to treat PTSD in the military, Alzheimer’s patients2, students with special needs, and small children. Contrary to popular belief, clients do not need to have musical talents or skills to benefit from this type of therapy and all types of music have beneficial properties in a therapeutic setting. Treatment may include clients making, listening, moving, and / or singing a musical selection.  The selection of songs is changed according to the preferences and needs of the individual. Support the show (
What is Biochemical Restoration in Recovery?  Biochemical Restoration in recovery has become a buzzword in rehabilitation treatment, and we have received many inquiries from people who are unsure of what biochemical restoration and recovery actually is and how it affects the body.  Biochemical Restoration is a branch of Functional medicine, and is the practice of preventing and treating disease by providing the brain and body with optimal amounts of substances which are natural to the body like amino acids, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, macronutrients, and other healthy materials. For our bodies and brains to function optimally, we require optimal amounts of such substances. How does Biochemical Restoration actually work?Lab tests can uncover issues like imbalances of amino acids, nutritional deficiencies, hypoglycemia, inflammation, adrenal fatigue, gut health, hormonal levels and neurotransmitters, while checking for heavy metals and toxicities.Based on the tests, a tailor-made system of dietary plans can be put together to help the client. If you add physical activity and relaxation, the brain’s biochemistry can be restored, and symptoms of craving can be alleviated or even eliminated.A healthy brain and body can significantly enable long term sobriety and improve cognitive skills and physical activity, emotional stability and well being can allow a person to benefit more from their recovery program. There will be less stress, and the person will be more relaxed and can concentrate during therapeutic sessions.Top 3 Rehabs for Biochemical RestorationPhysis RecoveryKusnacht PracticeCenturian HealthcareMany people see addiction primarily as a mental problem, yet in reality there are a lot of physical factors that play a role.For example, have you or someone you know ever “stress eaten?” Have you ever considered that the foods people crave in these situations tend to be processed or fried foods that are loaded with sugar, salt, saturated fats, and/or refined carbohydrates? That’s because this type of food provides a temporary “high.”The problem with these foods is that they destabilize blood sugar, increase inflammation, and deplete the brain of essential neurotransmitters. In other words, they create biochemical deficits. These deficits lead to anxiety, depression, and sleep problems, all of which have been linked to an increased risk of drug use.This is where biochemical restoration treatment comes in. While it does not replace traditional treatment – such as therapy and peer support – it acts as an aid that focuses on improving those biochemical deficits. This ultimately helps in the fight against addiction.Learn more about the Benefits of BioChemical Restoration with our PodcastSupport the show (
Dual diagnosis treatment is a relatively new innovation in the area of ​​addiction recovery.Until the 1990s, people who experienced symptoms of a mental disorder - anxiety, depressive episodes, delusions,  or mood swings - were treated separately from those seeking help with drug or alcohol abuse. Dual diagnosis was developed over 20 years ago as a concept that unfortunately is still not well understood by the medical institution. Dual Diagnosis describes a practice that identifies and treats people who suffer from both an addiction and a psychiatric disorder. In the 21st century, dual diagnosis brings together the most successful aspects of psychosocial care and drug abuse treatment. Every fourth adult with a mental illness is also reported to have a drug abuse disorder. Instead of drawing a hard line between psychiatric health and addiction, these areas are treated as part of a continuum. Clinicians can now receive training and certificates for the treatment of concurrent mental illnesses.Special rehab facilities offer recovery services tailored to customers with dual diagnosis.  However, finding the right rehabilitation program is still a challenge, especially if you are dealing with depression or anxiety, as well as drug abuse.  Best Dual Diagnosis Rehabs in the WorldPhysis RecoveryCenturion HealthcareThe Balance RehabHow many people have Dual Diagnosis?The  Department of Health and Human Services reports that only 12 percent of the 4 million American adults who had a dial diagnosis received treatment for both diseases. If you meet the diagnostic criteria for a mental disorder (depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorder, etc.) and for an addiction  disorder (alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling addiction, sex addiction, or other behavioral addiction) when you start treatment, you may be classified as a dual diagnosis client.  Dual Diagnosis TreatmentWhen looking to treat dual diagnosis effectively, you need to consider  both your addiction and your mental illness as you go through the recovery process.To increase your chances of a full recovery, your care should include a supportive therapeutic approach that strengthens self-esteem and confidence, instead of confronting clients with negative, aggressive statements, an inclusive treatment strategy includes partners, spouses, children and other household members in the  therapy for individual counseling, group meetings or education.Sequential Treatment & Dual DiagnosisSequential treatment "was the norm before the 1990s, when clinicians believed that there should be a separation between mental treatment and addiction rehabilitation.In the sequential approach, dual diagnosis clients were excluded from one treatment area until they were considered stable in the other.

Compulsive Exercise and Eating DisordersHost Alexander Bentley with guest, Ali Silver.I'm here today with Ali Silver, one of the top qualified eating disorder practitioners in Europe and also an intuitive eating coach. Ali speaks regularly at schools in the UK, in Europe about body image. And he's also the founding director of the Bridge Marbella, which is a specialist treatment center in the South of Spain.Exercising can be a great way to boost both your physical and mental health, whether it’s taking a jog around the neighbourhood, going for a swim, or lifting weights in the gym. But even though the benefits of exercise are well known, there is a problem known as exercise addiction that occurs when people become obsessed with working out — often with adverse consequences.Even though exercise is designed to improve your overall wellbeing, exercise addiction can actually produce the opposite effect and increase the risk of hurting your body and mind.Compulsive exercise is not a recognized clinical diagnosis in DSM-5, but many people struggle with symptoms associated with this term. If you are concerned about your or a loved one’s relationship with exercise, it’s advisable to consult with a treatment professional.Our brain has nine areas which body image is processed through. And it's not just about our environment. It's also about our brain chemistry. There's so much in body image which makes it hard to tackle. Body ideals have changed, but it's still a body ideal to look up to and to change ourselves. According to Ali Silver, expert in Eating Disorders and body image “Exercise addiction often doesn’t exist in isolation – it is 4 times more common among people with eating disorders. Compulsive overexercising is seen as another way to purge: compensating for perceived over-eating. Those with body dysmorphic disorder engage with over exercising as a way of exerting control of their body. Having negative body image is a significant risk factor in developing an eating disorder or body dysmorphic disorder; as well as being a primary cause for relapse or delayed recovery.There is very little enjoyment in exercise for those with this addiction: the enjoyment comes from the perceived control it gives them and the ‘high’ – much like bulimic behaviors in eating disorders as well as other addictions.”Support the show (
