Recovery Is About More Than Walking Away from Substances

Dr. Tucker and the Addicts Dilemma

Addiction treatment and recovery should include more than walking away from substances.  It’s essential to learn how to incorporate healthy lifestyles and risk-reduction behaviors to maintain sobriety.

When you build a strong foundation for a healthier lifestyle into your substance abuse treatment, you are more likely to experience long term recovery.

Dr. Tucker, the Medical Director for Dana Point Rehab Campus, explains how we help replace individual risk influences with protective factors that enable long-lasting changes.

At Dana Point Rehab Campus, we treat withdrawal symptoms while navigating individual risk factors for addiction, that may include: 

  • Psychological
  • Social
  • Behavioral
  • Family & Genetics
  • Demographics & Exposure
  • Increased stress & PTSD 
  • Bipolar Disorder


If your life compulsively revolves around obtaining your “high,” we understand how irresistible and overwhelming that is. You’re not alone. You can take back control and replace addictive behaviors with positive things that stimulate you as a person. Things like: 

  • A Healthy Lifestyle
  • Proper Nutrition
  • Regular Exercise
  • Meaningful Relationships
  • Positive Emotional Bonds with others
  • Healthy Work & Social Environment
