Is Addiction A Disease Or A Learning Disorder? | Decision Point Center

"All of the current research being done around brain function, learning disabilities and their relation to addiction is exciting because it expands our thoughts about, and tactics used to address, people with substance use disorders," says Gary Hees, Vice President of Professional Relations at Decision Point.
"In clinical terms, addiction certainly resembles other obsessive-compulsive patterns of behavior." "However, we know from the difficulties involved with, and possible life-threatening consequences of, detoxification, that there is a component of physical dependence that exists and must be addressed. After physical dependence is addressed, there does remain a pattern of behavior involving pleasurable response to a harmful behavior or substance. Whether the etiology of that pattern is physical, developmental or the result of a learning disability is yet to be determined. Learning a dysfunctional pattern of coping is usually the result of a combination of stressors, limited options for achieving the learning goal and the opportunities presented within a given individual's environment," says Hees.


The Impact of Addiction on Families | Decision Point Center

At a recent discussion forum on family dynamics in addiction treatment hosted by Addiction Professional magazine, Decision Point's Vice President for Professional Relations, Gary Hees emphasized the importance of a systematic approach that gives families a strategic plan to be able to support their loved ones.
"We need to enable the family to function differently so it can become a positive, proactive supporter of recovery," Hees said. "When they send their child to treatment, we need to be able to tell them, your loved one is in a safe place now, relax, take some time off," Hees said.

Implant Offers New Treatment Option For Opioid Addiction | Decision Point Center

www.decisionpointcenter.com [cached]

Gary Hees is Vice President of Professional Relations at Decision Point Center.
He is cautiously optimistic about the new treatment option. "The announcement of a six-month duration Probuphine implant is great news for those who truly need that kind of support. It will eliminate the need for daily maintenance dosages which is actually a duplication of the pattern of usage of illicit substances." It should not be seen as a panacea, though. "We have to remember that the key to effective treatment is never a 'one-size-fits-all' approach, but thorough assessment and evaluation leading to focused, individualized treatment," says Hees.
