Today, there is a wide range of addictions out there, including behavioral ones such as Internet addiction and sex addiction. In some cases, it may be substance-related such as alcohol addiction or meth addiction.

As it may take time for recovery to take place, you may have questions about the process or experience uncertainty and anxiety. It is necessary, however, to initiate action. The first step toward recovery is an important one. That’s why the Mind & Body Christian Group is here to support and assist you and your family.

If addiction treatment is delayed, the negative effects from an addiction may have long-term consequences, e.g. contracting an infectious disease due to sharing needles, damaging relationships with loved ones, increasing risk of jail time, and more. One should never trivialize these outcomes in order to continue his or her habits.


The process of recovering from an addiction is often different for every individual. At the Mind & Body Christian Group, we are fully aware of that. That’s why we have formed a multidisciplinary team that’s comprised of certified nurses, substance abuse counselors, Christian counselors, psychiatrists, and addiction physicians.

The Mind & Body Christian Group places God at the heart of our addiction treatment programs. Our team strives to help ex-addicts find a spiritual perspective on the recovery process and addiction treatment. Some of our Christian-centered addiction treatment programs include biblical teachings, medication management, psychological evaluation, life skills training, cognitive therapy, and behavioral therapy.

By combining medically-based, psychologically-based, and faith-based treatments, the practice has allowed us to effectively identify stressors, triggers, addictive behaviors and important tools to manage the cravings of our patients.


1.SIGNIFICANT HEALTH CHANGESThese changes concern an individual's physical and mental health. Whether they are suffering from a behavioral addiction or drug addiction, their health will often be on the decline. Some prominent signs include suicidal thoughts, depression, aggressive behavior, unprovoked mood swings, drastic weight loss or gain, bloodshot eyes, unexplained injuries, constantly ill, and more. One should always try his or her best to eliminate any potential medical reasons that may have caused an individual's health decline.
2.SIGNIFICANT PERSONALITY CHANGESAfter an addict moves past the early phase of addiction or the experimentation phase, he or she may start to exhibit major personality changes. The signs may be subtle at the start. It won't take long for the following telltale signs to surface: unnecessary levels of secrecy, constantly lying about the time spent on abusing a certain substance, chronic fatigue, irregular sleeping patterns, failure to show careful thought, taking dangerous risks, neglecting relationships (e.g. pushing loved ones further away), losing interest in hobbies, and more. Oftentimes, an addict will try to justify his or her behavior via seemingly absurd excuses to those who confront him or her. The individual may also start to hang out with other potential addicts who encourage negative habits.
