definition of treatment by The Free Dictionary

If they continued to sing like their great predecessor of romantic themes, they were drawn as by a kind of magnetic attraction into the Homeric style and manner of treatment, and became mere echoes of the Homeric voice: in a word, Homer had so completely exhausted the epic genre, that after him further efforts were doomed to be merely conventional.
Certainly, if Raffles had continued alive and susceptible of further treatment when he arrived, and he had then imagined any disobedience to his orders on the part of Bulstrode, he would have made a strict inquiry, and if his conjecture had been verified he would have thrown up the case, in spite of his recent heavy obligation.

Top 10 Moves, from Beginner to Advanced

Whether you’re pushing a grocery cart or putting on shoes, you use your core to accomplish everyday activities. It also affects your balance, posture, and stability.

Contrary to popular belief, the core doesn’t just include the abdominal muscles. It also consists of muscles in your back and around your pelvis.

Your core, or trunk, includes:

  • Erector spinae. The erector spinae is a back muscle that extends your trunk. It helps you stand up straight after bending over.
  • Rectus abdominis. When you bend forward, you use an abdominal muscle called the rectus abdominis. It’s known as the “six pack” muscle.
  • Obliques. Your internal oblique and external oblique let you rotate or bend your trunk.
  • Transverse abdominis. The transverse abdominis, which wraps around the front and side of your trunk, stabilizes your pelvis.
  • Multifidus. The multifidus in your back supports your spine.

Keeping these muscles strong helps stabilize your

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Co-occurring mental health conditions and substance use disorders affect nearly 8.9 million Americans each year. Of those only 7.4% receive appropriate treatment, with the vast majority bounced among treatment systems with different and opposing treatment structures.

Mental health treatment and addiction treatment have historically and continue to be separated systems of care. While many research studies have been performed on mental health and addictions separately, it has only been within recent years that studies have emerged on people who struggle with both conditions in tandem. This emerging research identifies that traditional separated systems of care not only alienate the consumer from treatment, but they also result in much poorer outcomes that those experienced by people
