Why is the counseling program necessary?

In addition to utilizing medicine to address the physical and neuro-biological aspect of the disease, patients will participate in intensive and individualized one-on-one sessions with recovery counselors.  As discussed above, to obtain and maintain sobriety, the physical AND the psycho-social/behavioral aspect of addiction must be addressed.   Naltrexone is a very effective tool that virtually eliminates the physical cravings when taken as prescribed. Once physical cravings are suppressed, the individual can focus entirely on the equally important and difficult psychosocial aspect of the addiction.  Study after study indicates that medical therapy in combination with counseling is superior to medical or behavioral therapy alone.  

It is critical to understand that addiction is a lifelong struggle.  The BioCorRx Recovery Program has had remarkable success in establishing sobriety in the vast majority of program patients. Once successfully enrolled in the program, and liberated from the shackles of alcohol or drug addiction, patients are strongly encouraged to participate in support groups (12 step, or otherwise) on a long-term basis in order to maintain personal focus, lifelong surveillance and sobriety.
