Areas of Focus

Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

Individual Therapy

This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Family Program

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 members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

Holistic Therapy

Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

Professional and Collegiate Athlete Program

Athletes are taught to perform extraordinarily well under pressure – but even they aren’t immune from addiction. At Recovery Centers of America at Bracebridge Hall, we provide patients with a complete continuum of care, including medically-monitored detoxification and residential inpatient care. We know how difficult it is to admit when you need help, especially as a professional athlete. But addiction isn’t a matter of willpower, it isn’t a game you have to win; it’s a disease. The mental and physical stress that comes along with being an athlete can push even the strongest of people to begin using drugs or drinking alcohol. This could be for a number of reasons, such as the intense pressure to perform well, injuries, physical pain, and retirement from a sport, says the US National Library of Medicine – National Institutes of Health.

Pregnant & Parenting Women

Recovery Centers of America at Bracebridge Hall is dedicated to helping anyone suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction. There are unique needs of pregnant and parenting women suffering from substance use disorders. Our team of licensed & credentialed therapists, case managers, and nurses are exceptionally trained to help you fight against addiction and get back to living a healthy life. We understand the difficulty of this disease and are here to help you. The best choice you can make for yourself and your family is seeking addiction treatment.

Relapse Prevention

The path to recovery is unique to each person struggling with addiction. For some people it takes multiple attempts at recovery, and with each passing attempt they may feel less optimistic about their future. At Recovery Centers of America, we see each attempt at recovery as a sign of commitment and hope. This specialized program uses a therapeutic, evidence-based approach designed to help those for whom recovery has been elusive. PRISE (Promoting Recovery through Intensive Support and Education) focuses patients on their recovery, rather than addiction, and focuses on a bright future.
