(Phoenix AZ)– The National Institute on Drug Use released an alarming statistic in 2013 when they discovered around 9.4% of the population in America had used an illicit drug. Unfortunately, drugs do not only claim victim the ones who shoot, swallow, or inhale them, they also claim the lives of loved ones and friends who watch those they care about become mere shells of who they used to be.
Phill Westbrooks, the President and CEO of The River Source spoke about the devastation they see in their three locations. “Each day, we meet people who’s lives have been torn apart by drugs. These people never intended to become addicts, yet here they are, needing our help. Because our program uses a holistic approach to recovery, we feel we are able to offer a unique perspective in rehab. Seeing our residents graduate from the program as changed individuals is what it is all about for us.”
The National Institute on Drug Use estimates around 570,000 people die of drug abuse each year. This shows that many addicts are not concerned with the very real consequences of using. Through the River Source’s treatment modalities, they hope to shed light onto this very real epidemic, allowing people to wake up to the seriousness of their drug usage before they find themselves in a dark hole, unable to get out. The River Source’s success rate of 76% continues to grow and they have helped thousands of patients recover from drug use permanently.
The River Source now uses a new technological treatment modality to assist their patients; and it is working better than anyone could have anticipated. “We have introduced Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery which uses virtual reality technology to touch patients’ lives in a truly innovative way. Our patients feel like they are personally sitting down with the doctor and having a consultation. This program has added a unique richness to our treatment and our patients love it,” says Westbrooks.
The River Source staff understands it takes a concerted effort to help their patients and their loved ones. They are able to offer savings for their program because their philosophy does not revolve around a five-star resort. They use simple, yet effective means to help their patients come to the reality of their drug addiction so they can discover the tools the need to overcome it.
