Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol Rehab Serenity Prayer Cirque Lodge, located within the breathtaking mountain setting of Utah provides a peaceful place for individuals seeking answers for their alcohol problems. Our focus is on the highest levels of alcohol rehab care, not just for the individual suffering, but for their family system as well. It is drinking and alcohol dependence that stand as the foremost problem in our society when it comes to substance use disorders. According to treatment data, it is also most treated within addiction programs. Cirque Lodge is committed to providing individuals with an effective alcoholism treatment program, within a caring and compassionate environment.

Usually when people think of 'alcohol rehab' their mind can go to different places and things. The alcoholic can think of treatment as some form of punishment, when really it isn't. Great labor and care has been taken in creating the right kind of environment, facility and alcohol rehabilitation treatment to inspire and build at Cirque Lodge. Again alcohol treatment is not about bad people becoming good. It is about helping sick people become well. It's about helping those people who are lost in the depths of alcoholism with solutions to give them their lives back.

Alcohol Rehabilitation: How Do You Know If You Need It?

In society, casual drinking is a perfectly acceptable behavior. Individuals can use the resource of alcohol to relax and be at ease. There is nothing wrong with this when alcohol is taken in moderation. When an individual imbibes in a drink or two to relax there should not be much concern. However, in some situations drinking can increase. Determining if someone needs an alcohol rehab program then should become a concern. Increased consumption is the first sign that there may be an alcohol addiction forming. Addiction can begin subtly a few extra drinks here or there. When cravings increase so does the amount of alcohol it takes to receive its desired effects. This is when a concern regarding addiction should begin.

Further exposure to alcohol addiction may result in employment difficulties. Individuals can have a hard time functioning at work without the aid of alcohol. When dependency begins the effects of alcohol are needed just to feel normal. A developed addiction can result in loss of employment and even worse. Alcohol abuse can affect families and living situations. It is never too early to seek treatment. When alcoholism sets in, a caring and intensive alcohol rehabilitation facility can be a life saving measure.

Alcoholism can be determined by the individuals unending desire to do nothing more than to drink. Alcoholism affects the lifestyle of the individual. Job, family, friends, and living all take a back seat to the consumption of alcohol. This dependence on alcohol has very adverse effects on the body's internal organs. Alcoholism can result in liver disease, heart problems, types of cancer and internal brain damage. The worst result of alcohol addiction is impaired judgment. This lack of judgment is the result of thousands of deaths in traffic related accidents. Getting treatment for alcoholism is ultimately a decision between life and death.

Aspects to Alcohol Rehabilitation

At Cirque Lodge, we like to believe that alcohol rehab should be personal and caring. You are dealing with vulnerable individuals who are seeking help. We also feel that it takes many levels of intervention and therapy to really reach out to such individuals. Many aspects go into our multi-systemic alcoholism treatment program, but the focus is always on each individual resident and what they need to recover. Individualized care consists of multiple personal therapies each week, in conjunction with group and family efforts.

We also feel that alcohol rehab should be attractive and engaging. You can tell an alcoholic what to do. You can show them what to do, but we feel that the real healing and recovery comes when they are able to do it themselves. Cirque Lodge provides many different opportunities for residents to apply what is developed in therapy and group through our experiential program. We go hiking, biking, snow shoeing, climbing in our ropes course, we work with horses, and we even have an art room. We use these venues as a means to applying recovery to real life experiences. The lessons gained by residents are memorable and invaluable!

Alcoholism affects the entire family system. You can send a loved one to treatment, but really how does that help those who are still at home? Studies have shown that better outcomes are had by families who are engaged in their loved one's alcohol treatment and recovery process. A signature piece to the Cirque Lodge drug and alcohol rehab center is the Family effort we call Family Week. This gives family members the opportunity to become more involved. It's an education and also means to learn how to better help your loved one though the recovery process. It can also be a means to helping you, the family member with some of the things you can be dealing with when it comes to your loved one's alcoholism.

12-Step Facility and Program

Cirque Lodge founds its program on the 12-step modality created by Alcoholics Anonymous. We take pride in being a leader among alcohol rehabilitation providers focused on a 12-step treatment. We believe in it to the point that it has been incorporated into our clinical pieces and experiential programming. The 12-steps give us a way to apply daily maintenance to our recovery. We feel that all efforts, clinical, personal and otherwise play a role in the ability to maintain these daily recovery goals.

We feel that alcohol treatment at Cirque Lodge lays the foundation for recovery for our residents, but it is through Alcoholics Anonymous and working the steps where their true structure is built. That is what you have through AA meetings is a support structure for continuing on. They even give you a sponsor for more personal support and a place to check-in. Before leaving our facility and graduating from treatment, these efforts are coordinated as a part of your Continuing Care Plan. Alcohol rehabilitation is a time for discovery. The 12-steps are where you find recovery!

Supportive Rehabilitation

Support programs are another aspect to alcohol rehabilitation help. Battling alcohol addiction is something that can be easier when the right means of support are in place. Support programs can consist of group settings and developing coping skills from group based activities. It can also consist of sponsor programs as a means of continued support. Support programs are in place to further alcohol rehabilitation. A residential stay at Cirque Lodge is 30 days. After that time enrollment in a support program and acquiring a sponsor are vital to maintaining what it takes to keep sober.

Our Staff

We believe that Cirque Lodge has the finest staff in the field of addiction treatment! Through the years it has been the effort of our caring and compassionate staff that has taken our facility to the levels of success and notoriety we have attained. This is the same staff that will work each and every day with you or your loved one. After admission, each resident is assigned to work with a master's level counselor who facilitates treatment and cognitive behavioral therapies at our facilities. We also have many members of staff in successful recovery. Taking the message of the 12-steps is part of working the program.
