Two decades of advancements in neuroscience convinced The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) officials that addiction should be redefined by what is going on in the brain. For instance, research has shown that addiction affects the brains reward circuitry, such that memories of previous experiences with alcohol, food, sex, gambling and other drugs trigger cravings and more addictive behaviour. Brain circuitry that governs impulse control and judgment is also altered resulting in the nonsensical pursuit of rewards.
DayHab’s treatment model is based on widely recognised evidence proving addiction is a disease and that abstinence is the best way to manage the condition. We approach addiction treatment in a holistic way, working with mind, body and spirit as components of a healthy life.
All DayHab staff are highly dedicated professionals with many years of experience working within addiction treatment and mental health services across Australia, as well as having overcome their own personal challenges with addiction.
