As addictive substances become more powerful and destructive, treatment facilities today must be able to adapt their programs to keep pace with the effects of these new substances and the ever increasing number of addicts needing treatment. At our facility, we continuously update our programs with the most proven and innovative treatment methods available today to offer clients a range of options for creating a completely individualized track to recovery. We believe that when a client is confident and comfortable with the program, they are more likely to remain in treatment, and their subsequent recovery will be complete and long lasting.
Before entering treatment, the individual struggled with despair, experienced alienation from friends or family, suffered health complications, and was possibly in financial distress. During treatment in our facility, clients are removed from the environment that seems like a black pit, and can feel secure in a serene atmosphere away from daily stress and demands. Caring, competent staff members are available 24/7 to offer guidance and support during difficult moments, and interaction with other recovering addicts helps the clients realize that they are not alone in this experience.
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.
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:
