Schick’s treatment program works and it can work for you too!

A first-of-its-kind imaging study was conducted by Schick Shadel Hospital and the University of Washington. In the study, scans showed reduced craving-related brain activity after chemical- aversion therapy. Functional MRI scans taken before and after treatment showed significant changes in the brain among 13 subjects. Sixty-nine percent of the participating patients reported still being sober 12 months after treatment. Read the full study by clicking the link below.

By treating the addiction at both the physiological and psychological levels, Schick Shadel gives patients the
ability to spend their time and energy on rebuilding their lives. The program is designed to help patients reroute the neuropathways to medically conquer the physical dependency – followed by aftercare support to help heal any emotional damage that may be an underlying cause of the addiction.


“After trying several different treatment options, I finally went to Schick and it worked! I wish I’d gone there first.”
