Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead of a suspected drug overdose. His body was found by a friend in the bathroom of his apartment in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.
Hoffman’s family, as well as his neighbors and colleagues in the film industry have all expressed their deep shock and regret over his tragic and sudden loss. He was not only a very talented performer but the father of three young children, and will be missed.
Hoffman Could Not “Drink In Moderation”
Hoffman admitted to suffering from drug and alcohol problems after he graduated from theatre school in 1989. He described his addiction as being “pretty bad” in a 2011 interview with the Guardian and understood that this chronic disease was something that required constant monitoring, since it might someday return.
He admitted that he had “no interest in drinking in moderation” and that he still did not. In 2013, Hoffman suffered a relapse and checked into a treatment facility after taking prescription pills and heroin. The idea that people can get treatment once and move on, never to need help again is a myth about this disease. Education and finding the answers to frequently asked questions is the key to understanding this disease.
Getting Personalized, Holistic Help For Drug And Alcohol Addiction
Drug and alcohol addiction problems are not confined to the rich and famous. Anyone can be affected by substance abuse, and they need to be treated, not treated like an outcast.
It can be difficult for someone to admit that he or she needs help, but once they reach that point, executive addiction treatment facilities can provide intensive outpatient programs where clients can get the help they need from a team of caring, professional addiction experts. Each client’s needs are evaluated so that an individualized treatment plan can be developed to meet his or her needs and goals.
There is a real solution to the problem of addiction. A holistic approach focuses on the client’s emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. If a person has been looking to substances to fill in a void in his or her life, the treatment center will provide new and healthier strategies to do the same thing. It’s not the addict’s fault they have this disease, any more than a cancer patient can be blamed for having tumors. Both of them need appropriate care and support, and The Dunes East Hampton is ready to provide it right now.
