Reviews at a Glance
- Intensive Outpatient Treatment
As your recovery journey continues, our treatment programs adjust to the levels of care you need. In the outpatient program, our clients maintain sobriety as a priority while balancing the responsibilities of everyday life. Through weekly group sessions and individual counseling as needed, outpatient care helps promote mindfulness and dedication to life beyond drugs and alcohol.
- Partial Hospitalization Treatment
The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides direct, dedicated attention and support from our compassionate and experienced clinicians and therapists. Through this program, you will learn coping mechanisms for dealing with life’s challenges without illicit substances.
- Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
- Family Programs
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family membersto understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
- 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 andlicensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addictiontreatment 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.
- Residential Treatment
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
- Process Abuse Treatment
Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.
