Transformation and Results
The Ascent Recovery Program is based on the Bio-Psycho-Social Model described by George Engel in 1977. The model attributes disease to: (1) biological factors, such as genetics and heritability, (2) psychological factors such as, mood, personality variables, and behavior, and (3) social factors, such as culture, family, and socioeconomics. As part of the Ascent Recovery Program, you will learn about the basics of neurobiology and how our brains are wired to learn and repeat behaviors to support survival. In this comprehensive program, you will learn about the limbic system and rewards system and how drug and alcohol addictions interact with these neurobiological systems. In this 9-week recovery program, you will be introduced to the most critical areas of addiction education needed to build a powerful foundation for your recovery journey.
