Treatment Insights

Awakenings by the Sea’s vision is to provide alcoholic and/or drug-addicted women and their families an opportunity to choose a healthier way of life at an affordable rehab. The untreated alcoholic or addict may suffer physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual maladies; the impact that the alcoholic or addict has on those around them can be equally devastating. Awakenings by the Sea’s alcohol and drug treatment center in Oregon believes that alcoholism and drug addiction are primary illnesses, which are chronic and progressive and that, without proper treatment, are ultimately fatal. Although there is no cure for the disease of addiction, recovery will occur by following a carefully structured recovery program that requires self-honesty, a willingness to change and the belief that a continuing support system, which may include other 12-Step recovering people, is essential. The cornerstone of this recovery program is total abstinence from any mood-altering substances. This is followed by education and application of the concepts outlined in 12-Step programs of recovery. Using this foundation and other therapeutic methods, we believe that our treatment program can provide knowledge, a supportive environment and the basic tools necessary for our clients to begin their journey into recovery.

Areas of Focus
Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

12-Step

The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

Individualized Treatment

Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

Aftercare Support

Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
