Double Feature

Addiction shows biological path & the Mansfield University Strings Project

 

by John Vogt, Sarah Vickery - January 13, 2014

Addiction research shows biological path

Wellsboro Home Page talks with Doug Candelario regarding addiction. Addiction comes in many forms, such as, but are not limited to alcohol, sugar, drugs, sex, gambling, exercise, computer, food, porn, and media. When you are addicted you just can’t walk away. Addiction is a powerful and destructive force that cost the addicted individual dearly.

Classic hallmarks of addiction include impaired control over substances or behavior, preoccupation with substance or behavior, continued use despite consequences, and denial. Habits and patterns associated with addiction are typically characterized by immediate gratification (short-term reward), coupled with delayed deleterious effects (long-term costs).

Physiological dependence occurs when the body has to adjust to the substance by incorporating the substance into its ‘normal’ functioning. This state creates the conditions of tolerance and withdrawal. Tolerance is the process by which the body continually adapts to the substance and requires increasingly larger amounts to achieve the original effects. Withdrawal refers to physical and psychological symptoms experienced when reducing or discontinuing a substance that the body has become dependent on. Symptoms of withdrawal generally include but are not limited to anxiety, irritability, intense cravings for the substance, nausea, hallucinations, headaches, cold sweats, and tremors.

If you or a loved one struggle with the bondage of addiction Wellsboro Home Page encourages you to get help. Contact your pastor, share your problem with Mom or Dad or someone that you know has your best interest at heart. Consider contacting an organization like Harbor Counseling. Do what you have to do to get free. Stop falling for the lie that your mind is feeding you that you don’t really have a problem. You can get free. You can walk in victory reaching your full potential. Do you have dreams and goals that seem impossible to achieve because of your addiction? Your dreams can come true. Take the first step today – get some help.

The Mansfield University Strings Project

How would you like to learn to play a string instrument? Well, now you can! This is an amazing opportunity for people of all ages in our community to learn how to play a string instrument through a very unique and successful program. You will be taught by some of the top students at Mansfield University while your instruction is overseen by Dr. Jeff Jacobsen, director of the Mansfield University orchestra.

Most everything taught in the Mansfield University Music Department is theoretical. So Dr. Jeff Jacobsen created the String Project so that students could be able to see the continuation of their education. The program gives students a glimpse into the future regarding what it’s really like to teach in the real world. When students leave the University they are truly ready to go into the classroom and teach from the vantage point of experience. Every Mansfield University student who has participated in the program so far has found a job teaching strings.

What a wonderful opportunity for people in our community! For some, this is a life long dream come true, for others it’s a chance to test their wings to see if playing a string instrument is something that they would like to pursue. The instruction is excellent. Overall, Wellsboro Home Page believes that this program is a win for everyone. Mansfield University music students become better teachers while people in our community learn how to make beautiful music together – and that’s a good note.
