SEABROOK, N.J., Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Seabrook House Foundation held its Annual Golf Classic today, to raise funds to provide individual grants for patients in need of treatment.
"Our Golf Classic has been a popular event that helps support our 'Patient Care Fund,'" said President Ed Diehl. "All proceeds are distributed in individual grants to supplement addiction treatment costs to those in financial need. The financial cost should not be a barrier to treatment. By providing these grants we can give those in need the chance to stay in treatment and continue to work towards their recovery."
According the National Institute on Drug Abuse, recovery from drug addiction is a long-term process and frequently requires multiple episodes of treatment. Based on decades of research and study, they have identified long-term treatment as the key to recovery and maintaining sobriety.
"We understand the importance of long-term care, and that is why we use the 120-day Seabrook House Model of treatment which includes a multifaceted medical approach to alcohol and other drugs including detoxification, gender-specific therapy with special emphasis on relapse prevention, and family intervention," said Diehl. "Long-term drug rehabilitation is considered to be the most successful method currently available, and our 'Patient Care Fund' provides a way for our residents to continue treatment and have a greater chance at sobriety."
Diehl states, that the Seabrook House Foundation has raised over $1.6 million and benefiting 287 patients since 1997.
