Changing the Attitude Toward Drugs – Behavioral Treatments


Kicking the drug habit is much more difficult than it sounds, and simply relying on medication cannot be effective in many cases.  Because drug abuse also has to do with an attitude and behavior problem, behavioral treatments often can help become a catalyst for effective treatments.  Not only does it modify how someone behave and view on drug abuse, it also help increase their healthy life skills.  Doing so can also enhance the effectiveness of medications according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse.  There are both outpatient as well as residential behavioral treatments, which can contain different programs such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, multidimensional family therapy, motivational interviewing, and motivational incentives.

For those seeking some support at home during outpatient behavioral treatments, A-1 Home Care in Encino are prepared to find you a quality home helper, home health aide, certified nurse aides, or other home care professionals to provide support.  Furthermore, we are flexible in our services, including 24 hour live in care, hourly home care, respite care, short term services, companion services, personal services, and other in home care needs.  No matter where you or your loved ones live in Los Angeles County, we have experience covering the areas of Encino, Canoga Park, Tarzana, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Northridge,San Marino, Beverly Hills, Thousand Oaks, Hollywood, and more.
