Addiction & Alcohol Treatment
Course of Treatment
The course of treatment our clinician will prescribe for a participant depends on the nature of the participant’s addiction. Many times, treatment will begin with a detox program. It’s vitally important that the participant is given time to get past their cravings and withdrawal symptoms prior to tackling the rigors of therapy. A fully licensed detox center will likely be able to keep the patient comfortable while they clear the worst of their withdrawal symptoms. Let us know if you need help finding a local Detox Facility.
Therapy is the time when the participant gets an opportunity to learn the truth about their addiction. The causes, sometimes a mental disorder, quickly become the targets of counseling. Through group and individual therapy, the objective is to help the participant build necessary coping and life skills they will need to navigate around their triggers and the temptations that stand before them. A strong set of coping skills will almost assure the participant will be able to maintain lasting recovery and remain resilient in the midst of distress.
If this is about you, you need to know the following. Your addiction does not have to become your way of life. If you are in the beginning of your addiction, you can expect things to get worse until you decide your life is worth fighting for at all costs. The time you invest in dealing with your addiction and mental disorder issues will likely be the best investment of time you will ever put forth in your life. Above all, you will get the chance to learn how to live life “one day at a time.” Hopefully, substance abuse treatment will give you the opportunity to live thousands of those days without succumbing to drugs or alcohol.
