GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Rachael visits West Brook Recovery Center to talk to Dr. Bruce Baker, an expert in alcohol and drug addiction. Dr. Baker treats all types of addicts with individualized care. One of his patients, a normal 33-year-old mother of two, became addicted to prescription medications after dealing with gastric pain. One problem led to the next, and she eventually became dependent on 16 different prescription drugs. The hopelessness and pain of addiction prevented the stay at home mom from being able to function and be there for her family mentally or emotionally. After being turned away from a couple different treatment centers, West Brook Recovery Center took her in, and she had detoxed from her prescription drugs in 5 weeks.
