Addiction recovery is hard
The right kind of helping hand can make the difference.
Individuals recovering from substance abuse disorders often need hands-on help to follow through on their intentions during the first year of recovery. For most, it is a vulnerable time when having the right kinds of support can make all the difference between relapse and experiencing a successful recovery.
Making the connection between executive functioning deficits and addiction gives you better options for recovery!
The effects of addiction on the brain now include neuroimaging studies that show some individuals who have a recent history of abusing alcohol and other drugs have observable impairments in their Executive Functioning capacities. As such, better options are being developed to help people with Executive Functioning deficits that are in early recovery. (If you haven’t read about EFD on this website yet, please do.)
A well-known Addictions Medicine Specialist, Dr. Stephen Stein, describes alcohol and drug abuse as constituting a “chemical injury to the brain.” It is not business as usual for these adults’ brains! The healing process can take varying amounts of time, but their lives need to go on, they need to get back to work, take care of responsibilities, repair any ‘damage’ where possible, participate in supportive activities, and change how they respond to life if they want to stay abstinent from alcohol and drugs. That’s very demanding for anyone and exceptionally demanding if you are trying to do all of that with impaired direction of the thinking and reasoning part of your brain.
Neuroimaging revealed that addiction can impair the Executive Functioning capacities in the following ways:
- Inability to remember things from one moment to the next
- Difficulty learning new things
- Trouble solving problems
- Inability to anticipate consequences or plan ahead
Enter the helping hands and the EFD expertise of Insync Support
Insync Support’s synchronized support model was conceived while working with individuals in addiction treatment centers, outpatient programs, and recovery homes who needed hands-on help to keep moving forward. Those individuals often had counseling support, but many needed a different a type of help that counseling alone could provide.
Working together with their therapist or family, we were able to help locate and facilitate entry into sober living environments, connect them with outpatient supports, help them register for classes, assist with follow through on legal matters, create budgets, write resumes, find apartments, provide practical problem solving guidance, and schedule appointments with MD’s and other healthcare practitioners.
And taken together – their effort at recreating a better life, and our expertise about addiction and about Executive Functioning Disorder – resulted in more productivity and experiences of success because finally they had the right tools and knew how to use them!
