Addiction Treatment Designed by Your DNA
House of Freedom Drug Rehab Center in Florida performs and utilizes DNA testing to make well-informed addiction treatment decisions. Performing DNA tests on drug rehabilitation patients provides us with valuable insight into potential neurochemical imbalances and allows us to choose a course of action to treat the individual based on their genetic and biological predispositions. By zeroing in on the underlying causes of the neuropsychiatric/neurochemical condition, House of Freedom Drug Rehab Center Florida is able to design more effective addiction treatment plans from actionable information. DNA testing is the future of substance abuse treatment and mental health, why wait?
The DNA testing that we perform analyzes ten genes that have been individually selected for actionable clinical applicability to treat neuropsychiatric conditions. This type of DNA testing is unique for its dual approach; it includes pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics genes.
Pharmacokinetic genes look at how the body metabolizes certain drugs, and pharmacodynamics genes indicate how certain drugs affect the body. Pharmacokinetic genes have traditionally led to important insights and drug treatment center options for patients, while pharmacodynamics genes are leading the field to new insights by focusing on brain chemistry. When certain drugs or neurotransmitters interact with a specific brain receptor, they modify the chemistry of the brain and directly influence behavior.
When was the last time a substance abuse treatment center looked at your physiological and genetic profile? Most likely the answer is never because House of Freedom Drug Rehab Center Florida is one of the few drug treatment centers in the world who have implemented this drug treatment protocol into their addiction treatment approach. Why do we do it? Because how do you know unless you look.
Our Florida Drug Rehab Center Saves You Time & Money
By having a physiological and genetic profile of a patient who is undergoing addiction treatment, it allows us to make better decisions and take the guesswork out of the equation. Did you know that most individuals who suffer from substance abuse undergo three to four drug treatment center episodes? Why waste time, money, and put your life at risk, when you could take a more secure approach towards recovery?
In today’s society most individuals who suffer from substance abuse also suffer from a psychiatric condition like depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, OCD, and/or ADD/ADHD. Having this genetic information about an individual, allows us to more effectively target both the chemical addiction and the psychiatric condition at the same time. DNA testing can also identify a predisposition to certain chemical addictions and help understand the body’s detoxification process for a more accurate approach to treatment.
The use of these specific genetic variations, which modify the body’s response to certain drugs and therapies, in the drug treatment center approach, is a new development knows as “personalized medicine.”
Personalized medicine has the potential to both increase addiction treatment effectiveness and lower cost of a drug treatment center by treating the condition once and for all, without the need to continue experimenting with additional treatments. Applying this technology to behavioral/mental health issues provides a more rational and personalized approach to addiction treatment.
House of Freedom Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Center in Orlando Florida uses a comprehensive approach that combines lifestyle interventions, clinical history, neurotransmitter testing, sleep quality testing, DNA testing with brain SPECT imaging that results in a high level of success with patients. In addition to medical interventions we also use natural supplements and other innovative treatment alternatives to suit any needs the individual may possess.
DNA Testing can be helpful to the addiction treatment of the following conditions:
- ADD / ADHD
- Anxiety Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
- Neurological Disorders
