Not many people know this, but proper chiropractic care can make drug rehab programs much more successful.
According to a recent study, those receiving chiropractic care was 55% more successful in their treatment from a rehab clinic. One major factor was because of the general sense of well-being the chiropractic care generated in those receiving treatment. That helped in continuing with the rehab programs as outlined and their drop-off rate reduced, which contributed in the overall increase.
But another factor is the actual adjustments. It has been suggested that misaligned spine can interfere with neural transmission of signals from the parts of the body and the brain, thereby disrupting ideal rehab process. With the fine tuning and adjustments of the spine, the body is allowed to function better and closer to its optimal state, which aids in the success rate of the rehab program as well.
Because the general public doesn’t often recognize the positive effects of chiropractic care for those in drug rehab program, not many chiropractors advertise to this market. As a result, you may have a difficult time finding one willing to work with a recovering drug addict.
I would suggest just doing a simple Google search and then contacting a whole bunch of them and asking if they have any experience working with those in drug rehabs. One I found was brantfordfamilychiropractor.com located in Ontario.
Another good potential place is to do a similar search in YouTube. Apparently, it’s the world’s second largest search engine, after Google. And because it’s owned by the same company (Google), it often returns similar or complementary results.
If you are out of luck in finding someone who specializes in working with rehab patients, you can try searching for those who may have had experience working with alcoholics. Or, those with severe chronic pains. It feels a bit wrong to say it, but look for chiropractors who work with work injuries. These can often be debilitating and many are unfortunately addicted to pain drugs to some level. And chiropractors who have worked with them may be your next best chance.
