Aspects of Drug Rehab in the Recovery Process
Drug addiction is a condition that requires different avenues of care. It is a chronic condition that can result in relapse, more than once. Recovery from this difficult disease is a process that can require an intensive clinical treatment. This page discusses aspects of our drug rehab program and the recovery process.

Many drug rehab centers function upon a recovery oriented system. They will couple the efforts of the 12-step community into treatment to give a continuum of support for the process of sustaining sobriety. We introduce these concepts in a number of engaging ways within our addiction treatment program. The recovery oriented effort is founded on these steps as a guide map for clean and sober living.
Rehabilitation Begins the Recovery Process
To start the recovery process, the use of harmful drugs must stop. This can be a very difficult process for some. A residential facility provides a caring environment for this to occur. It is controlled so that the individual isn't a danger to themselves. This process can also require different levels of intervention along the way and begins with drug detoxification. The detox process gets the toxins out of the body and provides care for any withdrawal symptoms that show up.
Even without drugs in the system, the impulses in the brain to use drugs or to self-medicate away deeper issues still exist. This is where an addiction treatment stay can be quite important. Part of drug rehabilitation is needed therapies and caring support for the individual. The efforts can go into the deeply rooted problems that fuel chemical dependency and provide care for them. It can take a battery of therapies not only to treat the individual struggling with the addiction to drugs, but also the family.
Introduction to Recovery
We focus on providing a solid introduction to the 12-step program. After treatment is completed, the community of support that comes from Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous can oftentimes be integral to drug recovery. While in rehab, this introduction begins the process and the step-work involved. We have a number of staff in successful sobriety to help residents with this recovery process. Residents also become involved in attending meetings and can even begin working with a temporary sponsor.
Aspects of the drug rehab program apply the concepts of recovery in a variety ways. We are known for our world-class experiential program. This program is a variety of activities and outdoor challenges to enhance treatment and continued sobriety. Mountain activities or a ropes course challenge activity can be coupled with 12-step lessons and discussions. This is a spiritual program and these nature activities can be a means to making internal changes and finding a power greater than one's own.
An area where we excel is in our efforts of balancing clinical addiction treatment with aspects of recovery. It is important to get to the heart of the matter of the addiction struggle found through clinical therapies. This effort is combined with the caring support that comes from the recovery community. It gives individuals a foundation for what to do after rehab. Our residents work with staff to coordinate a Continuing Care Plan to assist in long term sobriety when the resident returns to their home.
Continuing Programs after Drug Rehab
Continuing drug recovery programs can help to lessen the impulses to use or to drink, and make it easier to put those problems behind. There are a number of avenues to help a recovering drug addict once they have completed drug rehabilitation. This can involve getting into an outpatient program or into private therapies with a local counselor. Most communities also have sober living places and facilities to transition into after leaving the safe haven of a rehab. These types of programs can be based upon a recovery oriented system to help the individual continue their experience.
The 12-step program also continues on after rehab. Individuals who are committed to staying sober can greatly benefit from the help and support provided by the many successful 12-step groups that are available. 12-step programs provide a sponsor for those new to the community. This is a one-on-one support network. Support can make the struggles of addiction a little easier, and involvement in these types of service programs keeps the addict/alcoholic surrounded with it.
