Today’s research clearly demonstrates how chiropractic adjustments help people that have lost their ability handle stress. People who are addicted to the use of drugs will go through an often painful process of withdrawal when they stop using. This withdrawal process is the primary reason an addict will fall out of a treatment program and begin using again. The withdrawal process is a clear indication of a body that is not adapting to stress.
According to a March 2001 article in the Miami Herald newspaper, it was reported that patients in a residential drug-addiction program who received chiropractic care completed the treatment program at a remarkable 100 percent rate.
Patients involved in the study at the Exodus treatment center who received chiropractic care made fewer visits to a nurses’ station and showed significant decreases in anxiety.
Dr. Jay Holder, medical director of the Exodus program said, “Nationally only 72 percent of participants make it all the way through a 30 day rehab program.” Holder went on to say, “Specific chiropractic care results in a sense of well-being that allows patients to benefit more thoroughly from the group therapy and medical care of addiction treatment.”
While we do not treat addiction, we may be able to make treatment easier on everyone.
