Rose Rock Recovery Center

Strengths: Focus on source of problems and not the negative coping mechanisms we were abusing. Specifically focused on woman's issues. Weaknesses: No sugar or pop.It is a long term 3-6 month program where you and your fellow clients will work together to help and keep each other accountable. The facilitators and counselors are genuine honest woman who are in recovery themselves and truly care about helping.
4.8 out of 5

Pine Manor Inc - Chemical Dependency Services

Ability to let individuals find their strengths from within, and have support via alumni after completion of treatment. It could have longer in-patient treatment. Otherwise it is a top notch place to find a new way to live!! The setting is peaceful, on a lake and deep in the woods. The food is great and the Staff are top notch!!
4.2 out of 5

Adventist Health - Unity Center for Behavioral Health

Gerry Brown

Founder and President U-Turn For Christ - Gold Hill

Pastor Gerry Brown comes from a family of fifteen brothers and sisters, and is therefore family oriented. After many years of struggling with the sin of addiction, finding himself in divorce court with a Judge warning him that he was about to ruin his life, he agreed to do whatever his lovely wife Peggy wanted for him to get his family back. Peggy’s one requirement was for Gerry to attend church with her. Gerry agreed, not realizing God would get a hold of his heart and change his life forever. That was over twenty years ago. Today he is the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Romoland and also the founder and President of U-Turn For Christ. His unique shoot-from-the-hip style of teaching gets right to the heart of the matter, and the meat of the Word. His powerfully unique style of delivering God’s Word will both challenge and encourage you to new levels of maturity in your walk with Jesus, as we draw from God’s design for living, and discover new insights to God’s “Truth and Love in Action”.

Researching Altoona Rehabilitation Centers
Addiction no doubt drives the drug distribution rings and networks within state and regional areas. Altoona drug rehab centers are there to help anyone who feels trapped inside the addictive grip of alcohol and drugs. A July 2012 article in the Altoona Mirror News reports on yet another drug dealer sentenced to decades of prison time for multiple counts of selling and distributing cocaine drugs.

Once a person starts on the path to recovery, living drug-free becomes a choice regardless of how accessible drugs may be.

When to Search for Professional Treatment

The human brain regulates a delicate balance of chemicals and nerve responses on an ongoing basis. Any chemical imbalances can offset a range a processes throughout the body. Normal brain chemical processes become impaired whenever a person ingests drugs or alcohol. When this happens on a repeated basis, the brain loses its ability to manage bodily processes without the presence of drugs. Considering the brain is perhaps the most important part of the body, the sooner a person gets professional help for an addiction, the better.

Short-Term Effects of Alcohol

Alcohol works as a depressant within the brain’s chemical makeup, which means it slows down normal brain functions. As brain functions slow, a person will start to exhibit symptoms that correspond with the functions most affected in the brain. According to the Florida Institute of Technology, the short-term effects of alcohol consumption include the following:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Poor decision-making abilities
  • Lack of coordination
  • Increases in heart rate and body temperature

Enrolling Into Recovery Centers in Altoona

Enrolling in a drug treatment center may seem overwhelming at first, especially for someone going through a detoxification program. Drug detox involves cleansing the body of all traces of drugs. Depending on the type of drug used, cravings and withdrawal symptoms can be quite intense. In cases where withdrawal symptoms are severe, Altoona treatment center staff will administer medication therapies to help ease a person’s symptoms. Once the body is clear of drugs, rehabilitation can begin.

Rehabilitation typically involves individual and group counseling sessions that help a person learn how to manage everyday life without the need for drugs or alcohol.
