Behavior problems can be as a result of
drug abuse, alcohol abuse or chemical imbalances in the brain
but regardless behavior problems can be solved with the right
treatment. Behavior problems in individuals involve emotions
and feelings and creating difficulties for yourself and those
around you. Often behavior problems develop in adolescence
and continue into adulthood. Individuals with behavior problems
often feel immature or that they are stuck in development.
For drug and alcohol abusers this is often quite true and
behavior problems come as a result of not resolving internal
conflicts created by using.
Behavior problems can come in many different
forms. For those who are depressed, behavior problems tend
to include isolation, crying, constant sadness and in extreme
cases threats of suicide. Behavior problems centered around
aggression tend to act out in argumentative, violent ways
especially directed at loved ones. Quick to temper, lack of
respect for authority and a tendency to get violent can lead
to problems with the law and a court case. Other consequences
of behavior problems can be a loss of a job, financial troubles,
loneliness and of course increased use of alcohol and drugs.

Tactics for new behaviors are taught and reinforced
in order to identify and overcome behavior problems. The emphasis
is on learning how to identify behavior problems way before
they become problems. This is done by examining past thought
processes and choices that have lead to behavior problems.
Spencer Recovery Center's know how to bring about a change
in their clients.
Studies have shown that treatment candidates
do not even need to begin willingly. According to the National
Institute on Drug Abuse, influencers like family interventions,
court referrals or job requirements can force recovery. Consequences
from these same influencers has been shown to increase the
likelihood of treatment center retention and lead to abstinence.
Many of Spencer's clients come from some sort of pressure
from a crisis like family intervention or court mandate and
stay to achieve full recovery.
