Getting Help For Nicotine Addiction

Nicotine addiction starts with the introduction of nicotine into the body either through smoking cigarettes, vaping, chewing tobacco, or other forms of nicotine delivery. When nicotine enters the body it causes a series of chemical reactions that activate receptors in the brain, releasing dopamine and other neurotransmitters that produce feelings of pleasure and reward. This feeling is often reinforced by the pleasurable taste or smell of nicotine from cigarettes, vaping or other forms of tobacco products. This reinforces the addiction cycle as it encourages people to use more nicotine in order to experience these feelings again and again. The physical withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking can be uncomfortable and discouraging for many people. Common symptoms include cravings for nicotine, irritability, difficulty concentrating, depression, insomnia, and increased appetite.

Treating nicotine addiction requires a combination of lifestyle changes, medications, and support from family and friends. Benchmark Transitions offers treatments that can help people quit smoking by reducing cravings and managing withdrawal symptoms. Setting up lifestyle changes and avoiding triggers like other smokers or places where you used to smoke can also be helpful. In some cases, medications such as nicotine replacement therapy or bupropion may be used to help reduce cravings and manage withdrawal symptoms. Counseling or support groups can provide an important source of motivation, guidance, and emotional support is also available for someone trying to quit smoking.

Reviews for Benchmark Transitions Treatment Center

It's truly a blessing to see the effects the program has on the clients...

I’ve seen some amazing things occur with the clients that have come through the program at Benchmark. I’ve seen wonderful turn-around with clients that will not even speak to staff and hold their head down always, to walking with their head held high, showing confidence, smiling, interacting and being talkative with staff and coming alive right before my eyes!

The transformation is so great to see – it’s truly a blessing to see the effects the program has on the clients!!!

I was introduced to everyone who will be involved in my son's treatment...

My 25 year old son checked in this past Thursday. My first impression is extremely positive. I was introduced to everyone who will be involved in my son’s treatment. I was given a tour of the facility and his schedule of treatment was discussed. The next day I received a phone call from my son and one of his mentors. I also received an email with information pertaining to the Family Bridge, a portal where parents and family members can write to their loved one at Benchmark. I see photos of my son enjoying hiking and positive activities with his peer group. It is so important to me that I am “in the loop” and know what is happening with my son (even if he is an adult at 25).

He had gone to another rehab last year and that experience was very different. Though we had an appointment, we were kept waiting for hours. I was never introduced to the staff, the program was never discussed. I was told that I could not see the rooms. They seemed disorganized and overwhelmed.

Benchmark does feel warm, caring and like a family. The 18-28 age group is perfect for us. Aside from addiction recovery, my son is learning vocational, educational and life skills (such as money management & career counseling). I will post again after 6 months. So far, I feel optimistic and relieved.
