Alcohol and Drug Treatment
Our facility offers recovering individuals another shot at making positive and pivotal changes by helping him or her escape their drug or alcohol addiction. We support our clients and help them put a stop to the struggle in order to achieve a lifetime of sobriety. We will help our clients target all characteristics of their alcohol or drug abuse.
Mental and Physical Addiction
Alcohol or drug addiction encompass two types of dependence: physical and mental. Physical dependence is where an individual will experience withdrawal symptoms once they try to decrease or stop their substance abuse. While mental dependence requires therapy, the physical characteristics of addiction will be assisted with a medically supervised withdrawal period, known as detox.
A medically assisted withdrawal period, detox, is the first step taken once arriving to treatment. Detox is a period that removes physical addiction by allowing the body to normalize itself once all alcohol and drugs have been ridden from the individual’s system. However, treatment does not stop there. Next, our facility shifts focus on the mental addiction.
What would I do in Treatment?
When physical dependency is taken care of, it is time to smash the mental dependence. Mental addiction is categorized by an individual’s judgements and behaviors that revolve around his or her alcohol or drug addiction. These judgements and behaviors include, but are not limited to, how they will get hold of the drink or drug, dreaming about the next drink or use, and romanticizing about how that high or drunk feels.
This is why we have individual and group therapy. Group therapy, because the majority of our daily routine happens around other people, teaches our clients how to expand their social skills that were lost in active addiction. It is most beneficial speaking on feelings in group sessions. Speaking on feelings provides the recovering individual with response from other individuals going through the same struggle. Attaining multiple perspectives, from all walks of life, is helps endorse transformation and growth in the recovering addict’s recovery. While group therapy takes a social approach, individual therapy is where our clients can really open up in a safe, comfortable, and confidential environment.
Just like group therapy, individual therapy helps improve the mental well-being of our individual clients.
Our clients will work one-on-one with a licensed therapist. Individual therapy is a process that has intentions to improve quality of life. Working with a therapist can help recovering individuals confront barricades that affect emotional and psychological happiness. It may also promote growth in positive feelings such as kindheartedness, self-esteem, affection, bravery, and serenity.
