The Northern Arizona Center for Addiction is a nationally accredited and state licensed facility that provides individual, group and family counseling and assistance in the self-administration of medication.
At NACA, our medical team utilizes a holistic approach in their treatment of drug and alcohol addiction that both complements and builds on the unique needs of the individual. We bring up-to-date knowledge on the most current research with an emphasis on the vital, basic building blocks in each of us, necessary for the body, mind, and spirit to all work together as one.
Upon admission, our clients receive a full psychiatric assessment to determine if any underlying psychiatric disorders may be complicating their ability to achieve and maintain sobriety. Additionally, our clients also receive thorough physical examinations, in addition to wellness and nutritional screenings to identify any concerns present that may also need to be addressed during their treatment. In conjunction with this, full laboratory analyses are then conducted to identify any irregularities present in vitamin levels, thyroid function, liver and kidney function, lipid and glucose levels, as well as adrenal function and sex hormone levels. Here at NACA, we understand the connection between these physiological components and the related issues they may precipitate in an individual’s ability to maintain sobriety. Our medical staff here not only utilizes various allopathic forms of treatment, they also monitor and provide any vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and herbs necessary to bring the body back into a balanced state.
The Northern Arizona Center for Addiction specializes in providing counseling for clients who have opted to develop their personal recovery from chemical and alcohol dependency and other process addictions by resolving the underlying physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual conditions that may lead to their addictive behaviors. NACA also offers residential housing to all its clients as part of their program. Services are provided to adults over 18 and under the age of 65.
The term “Chemical Dependency” is often used in conjunction with and at times interchangeably with the terms: chemically dependent, chemical dependence, alcoholism, addiction, substance abuse, substance dependence, drug habit, and drug addiction.
For our purposes, the term chemical dependency refers to a primary illness or disease which is characterized by addiction to a mood-altering chemical. Chemical dependency includes both drug addiction and alcoholism (addiction to the drug alcohol). A chemically dependent person is unable to stop drinking or taking a particular mood-altering chemical despite serious health, economic, vocational, legal, spiritual, and social consequences. It is a disease that does not see age, sex, race, religion, or economic status. It is progressive and chronic and if left untreated can be fatal.
When a person is chemically dependent, they have lost the power of choice over using mood-altering chemicals. They may be able to stop for awhile, but they will return to its use again and again despite their best intentions and exertions of logic and willpower. For these reasons, chemical dependence (alcoholism and drug addiction) is said to be a cunning, baffling, and powerful disease.
