Why Evidence-Based Addiction Care Matters

Societal norms cast a shadow on addiction – making addicts feel as though their disease is a moral failing. This pervasive perception adds just one more barrier to treatment for those who may be suffering from substance use disorder (SUD) – one of many barriers that result in only 1 in 10 patients who need addiction care to receive it. But what many people fail to see is that addiction is a chronic, treatable brain disease. By that standard, addiction treatment should be guided by the same framework with which we manage other medical conditions – an evidence-based approach.

Wellbridge Addiction Treatment & Research believes that addiction is a medical condition and that evidence-based addiction care matters.

What is Evidence-Based Addiction Care?

Wellbridge delivers evidence-based addiction care. Our approach examines the causes of addiction and the effects of addiction on the brain. We leverage the latest research to continually inform and advance our addiction care which is individualized for each patient.

Individualized Treatment

Leading research tells us that SUD is tied to both biology and behavior, meaning that an effective treatment plan must address both. That’s why we integrate a variety of treatments – talk therapy, art therapy, music therapy, wellness and nutrition planning, and more – into every individual treatment plan. At Wellbridge, we aim to treat the whole person.

By leveraging the latest research, we feel confident that we can better individualize patient care plans to support our patients returning to their lives outside of Wellbridge.

At Wellbridge, we are committed to you and your sobriety. We treat with compassion and maintain patient dignity – because your battle with addiction is not a moral failing.
