Educational Programs

Knowledge by its self is not power, applied knowledge is power. 


By learning about multiple aspects of substance misuse, its effects on lives and how to manage life in recovery ARAD participants are better equipped to apply the strategies & techniques learned and developed in other programs they are participating in.

Educational Programs Available
Education often helps participants begin to understand what they have been experiencing and how their life got out of control.  As they learn the underlying causes and processes of addiction it helps take away some of the feeling of powerlessness and they begin to take a more deliberate role in working out their sobriety.      

We place a strong emphasis on education because the better our participants understand their situation and what they can do to manage it the more likely they are to act on that knowledge and the more power they have to get and stay free. 
These and other educational topics will be covered in treatment.
  • Addiction as a Brain Disease

  • The physiology of Addiction
