Behavioral Health Treatment Center in Malibu

For years now, addiction has been referred to as a disease of the brain. As a brain disease, it points to actual alterations that occur in the brain’s neural pathways in response to drugs and alcohol. Drugs hijack the brain’s reward system, locking the individual into the addiction cycle. A comprehensive drug rehab program can help to break that cycle. LifeSync can help with behavioral health treatment in Malibu.
