Ana Moreno of Lucida Treatment Center discusses common elements of addiction and Lucida’s unique approach to treating substance abuse and mental health. Treatment programs at Lucida are based in the understanding that addiction is not a condition that can be treated by simply focusing on the addiction. In actuality, addiction is a symptom of a greater life problem.
To be effective, drug rehabilitation programs must approach addiction holistically and comprehensively. At Lucida, addicts see that rehab and recovery are simply parts of the larger healing process that must take place in order for the individual to experience freedom and wellness. This involves focusing on emotional development and lifestyle issues, and will often incorporate the addict’s family in the recovery journey.
