Treatment Insights

The Discovery Institute views dependence as a disorder of the “whole person” affecting every aspect of his or her behavior, belief system, and lifestyle. This disorder is profound in nature and has a negative impact on one’s self, family, and society as a whole. Discovery has come to recognize that this condition affects people many ways, which causes our treatment approach to be designed to address any and all issues that support and contribute to addiction. A primary emphasis is placed on the importance of the individual to seek and incorporate a change in his or her behavior, attitude, and lifestyle. Discovery’s holistic treatment initiatives will be all encompassing in nature due to addiction affecting so many aspects of an individual’s life. This allows Discovery to not only treat addiction, but address significant related issues based on the individual needs.

Areas of Focus
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.

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.
