At Awakenings Rehabilitation, we strive to address the personal needs of each of our clients and offer individualized treatment options. Our dedicated staff works with each client one-on-one to ensure long-term success in their recovery process. We understand that recovering from an addiction is not easy; it is a challenging and emotionally intense process. As a result, we believe in providing each individual with the compassionate care and respect they deserve. True recovery is not simply being abstinent from substances. True recovery means reconnecting with oneself and flourishing in life. It is with this spirit of compassion, combined with our staff’s skillfulness, that we inspire, nurture and empower our clients to change their own lives.
Awakenings Rehabilitation Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
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.
