With all of the addictive substances in our world today, there is more need than ever for good addiction treatment facilities. Individuals of every race, gender, and class face the demons of addiction every day. There are many reasons for these addictions. Young adults simply may be curious about various drugs or face peer pressure from their friends to try drugs of different types. They do not realize how easily they can become addicted to these substances. Many adults struggle with stress in their lives and choose to use drugs or alcohol to mask the problems of their everyday lives.
Our addiction treatment center offers numerous treatment programs, so there will be one designed for each client’s individual needs and preferences. We feel that if the client is allowed to participate in choosing a program to fit their needs, they will stick with the program and ultimately, have a much higher success rate for recovery. Our inpatient treatment programs remove the client/patient from their environment of drug or alcohol usage. They are not in the company of friends and relatives who may contribute to, or trigger, the client to use their substance of choice. Our addiction treatment center offers a safe and serene environment with a caring and compassionate staff on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If at any time the client has issues arise, there is always someone on hand to handle the situation or just lend a kind ear to listen.
What is the First Step in Treatment?
Detox is the first step in addiction recovery, and is usually the part of treatment dreaded the most by addicts because of the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms they expect. Fear of detox has prevented many addicts from getting the treatment they desperately need, and in many cases, lives have been lost because of this fear. We understand this apprehension, and are equipped to address any situation that might arise during the detox process. Our well-trained staff monitors withdrawal symptoms, and is available 24/7 to give much needed support and assistance as needed in order to provide a safe and effective detoxification for the client.
The goal of detox is to remove all traces of the addictive substance from the body to eliminate cravings and prepare the client for the next stage of treatment. Without successful detox, the rehabilitation program will be ineffective, and relapse is inevitable. The length of time needed for complete detox depends on the substance involved and the extent of the addiction, and since everyone responds differently to treatment, it is difficult to give a specific time frame. Anyone looking for a quick fix will be disappointed, because our goal is to provide lasting results, and that takes time and effort on the part of the addict and the treatment professionals as well.
Why is Detox Not Enough?
Many people mistakenly believe addiction is a physical condition that will reverse when the substance is removed. Unfortunately, there is much more involved in addiction that cannot be resolved by abstinence alone. Ask any addict why they take drugs or drink alcohol. Some say they wanted to have more fun, while others say they just couldn’t deal with stress anymore. More reasons they might give are: depression, chronic pain, financial trouble, or relationship issues. These answers support the fact that there is more involved than just the physical dependence, and unless these factors are addressed, the chance of lasting recovery is not likely. For this reason, detox must be followed by a rehabilitation program designed specifically to target these contributing factors.
In order to successfully function in life without drugs or alcohol involved, the addicted person must learn to confront and manage situations in an effective manner and feel confident in their ability to do so. This involves reconditioning the mind to accept an entirely new way of viewing life in general, and in how they perceive their place in society. Confidence must be restored, and trust must be earned. For these reasons, treatment and therapy must be directed toward achieving these goals. We offer a variety of methods for helping a client focus on each of their specific needs such as:
