    Part 2: Close-Up spotlights Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services

    in Psychology

    Hattiesburg, MS – There’s a stigma associated with addiction and behavioral health; the general population believes it’s simply a matter of self-discipline, but addictive behavior alters a person’s brain chemistry until their addiction affects every aspect of their well-being. Without meaningful intervention, their addiction can threaten their career, their friendships and even their family.


    Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services is a treatment facility for individuals suffering from chemical dependency and sexual addiction. Since 1984, Pine Grove has asserted itself among the country’s most comprehensive treatment facilities.


    “Patients come to us in crisis on the brink of losing everything. That’s why we take it very seriously,” says Audra Cummings, Pine Grove’s Director of Business Development. “You come here for a service and we’re going to make sure you get that service.”


    Pine Grove strives to help patients move toward personal accountability, self-activation and empowerment. The facility’s interdisciplinary staff of addictionologists, psychiatrists, psychologists and medical doctors is focused on helping patients break down their disease.


    “We treat addiction just like a medical doctor would treat cancer, that same level of seriousness,” says Audra Cummings. “When you come to Pine Grove you have an army behind you.”


    According to Cummings, the clinical experts at Pine Grove work from the perspective that addiction is a bio-psycho-socio-spiritual disease; it affects the mind, body and spirit, as well as the community.


    “Getting addicts to recognize and accept that they have a problem is the hardest part," says Cummings. "We have to gain their trust so that they’re more willing to gain insight into their addiction.”

    Part 4: Close-Up spotlights Pine Grove Behavioral Health's Gratitude Program

    in Psychology

    Hattiesburg, MS – Sexuality is core to who we are – it’s part of what brings pleasure to our lives – but the same factors that may influence a person to abuse drugs or alcohol can also lead to sexual addiction.


    Sexual addiction is a progressive intimacy disorder characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and behavior. Like all addictions, its impact on the addict and family intensifies as the disorder progresses.


    Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services is a treatment facility for individuals suffering from chemical dependency and sexual addiction. Since 1984, the facility has asserted itself among the country’s most comprehensive treatment facilities, offering a continuum of care ranging from outpatient services to full 90-day residential treatment.


    Pine Grove’s internationally renowned Gratitude program offers treatment for people seeking help and hope from sex addiction, sexual anorexia, love and relationship addiction and sexual trauma.


    “Sex addiction is just one form of a larger thing. A fix is a fix and addiction is addiction,” explains Deborah Schiller, Gratitude’s program director. “Patients come through our doors begging for help because their sexual behaviors are robbing them of the life they want to live. We’re happy to help them.”


    Through education, treatment experiences and integration, Pine Grove’s Gratitude program strives to help patients gain understanding of their disease and the necessity of maintaining connection with a broad support network.


    “What we’re doing is a program of recovery based on the most up-to-date work of researchers in our field,” says Schiller. “Sex addicts have a lot of shame associated with their behavior. If they can hear their story being told by someone else, they’re more likely to be engaged by the process.”

    Whats the big deal about pine tar in MLB?

    in Sports

    In this episode of The Red Light Sports Ramble, presented by The Red Light Sports Network, Evan Witalison and Troy Otradovec will talk MLB.  Will Smith, from the Milwaukee Brewers, was ejected this week because of having an illegal substance on his arm.  Pine tar can be used to get a better grip on the ball.  However, does it make them through the ball any harder?  "Every pitcher does it so they'll have a better grip so we won't get hit in the head," Freeman said. If batters are ok with the use of pine tar, do you think that it is time to do away with this rule?  Listen in and call the show.
