Alcohol addiction can feel all-consuming.
It can affect your health, your relationships with loved ones, and your work life. However, addiction is treatable, and with the right support and commitment, recovery is possible for anyone.
At Cirque Lodge, our individualized residential rehabilitation program provides holistic healing for your mind, body, and spirit. The spectacular scenery surrounding the center offers inspiration for your recovery and helps you rediscover your love for life. Our program is designed and led by medical experts who will help guide you to lifelong recovery.
Detox is usually the first step in alcohol addiction treatment. It is the process of removing all traces of alcohol and its toxins from your body. Detoxing allows you to fully engage with therapy and the rest of your treatment plan.
When you stop drinking, you often experience a range of alcohol withdrawal symptoms as your body adjusts to the absence of alcohol. These withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, and in some cases, dangerous. If done incorrectly, alcohol detox can be fatal, so it must always take place under the constant supervision of medical professionals.
Withdrawal symptoms can vary but may include:
At Cirque Lodge, you will withdraw from alcohol in our private detox treatment facility. We provide 24-hour medical assistance to make the process as easy and comfortable as possible, and if needed, we may prescribe medication to ease your withdrawal symptoms.
Everyone’s experience of alcohol addiction is different.
It affects our thought patterns, feelings, and behaviors in different ways. It has complex and often deep-rooted causes that vary from one individual to the other.
Addiction treatment programs need to cater to these individual needs. The National Institute of Drug Abuse states that matching treatment settings, interventions, and services to a person’s particular problems is crucial to their ultimate success.
At Cirque Lodge, we begin with an in-depth mental and physical assessment to provide insight into your addiction and the best treatment plan for you. We may contact your family members to gain a deeper understanding of the causes and background of your addiction.
We assign you a professionally licensed counselor to work with as your primary counselor throughout your stay. They work with you individually on your treatment plan and support you through one-on-one therapy sessions and family therapy.
Our individualized alcohol rehab program combines different treatment options, including:
As you progress through the treatment program, we re-evaluate and adapt your plan so you receive the most effective treatment for you at any given time.
Two of the essential parts of our treatment program are Dual Diagnosis and the 12-Step Program.
Many people with an alcohol or drug addiction also have co-occurring mental disorders such as depression and anxiety. Research by SAMHSA in 2017 found that 45.6% of adults with substance use disorder had at least one other mental health disorder.
Underlying mental health issues may have contributed to the start of alcohol addiction or may have developed due to it. They are often one of the leading causes of alcohol use disorder. Treating co-occurring disorders is key to long-term recovery from addiction.
At Cirque Lodge, we offer a holistic healing process that treats the whole person. Our Dual Diagnostic program focuses on treating co-occurring disorders so they do not cause you to return to alcohol at a later stage.
The 12-Steps is a spiritual program developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. It is one of the most trusted and effective methods for recovering from alcoholism and is connected to a community of over two million people worldwide.
The 12-Steps focus on your spiritual development and the healing power of one alcohol user helping another. They provide a map for recovering from addiction and maintaining abstinence in future years.
At Cirque Lodge, the 12-Steps are the foundation of our treatment program. It underpins our behavioral and experiential therapy, providing different ways to learn, explore and help others through altruism.
Impatient treatment is an intensive residential treatment that involves staying at a rehab center for an extended time.
It allows you to start over and view things from a fresh perspective. At Cirque Lodge, our state-of-the-art luxury treatment facilities offer a variety of advantages over other treatment programs. These include:
Recovery from alcohol addiction is hard, especially at the beginning. At Cirque Lodge, we have around-the-clock care to help you through this.
Our professional staff is always available to help you through challenging times at any time of the day or night. We can offer you medical advice and support, therapy, or just someone to talk to.
In daily life, you may spend a lot of time thinking about alcohol. Specific cues in your environment may remind you of it, and your mind may turn to drink when you have a moment to spare.
At Cirque Lodge, your day is filled with programs, therapy, and enriching experiences. Engaging activities focus your mind on positive and healing thoughts, keeping it away from negative thinking. The surrounding Rocky Mountains are a constant source of inspiration that helps you reconnect with your mind, body, and spirit.
Living with a structured daily routine is also key to long-term recovery. Developing this during the treatment process helps you to maintain a good routine once you leave the center.
Recovering from alcohol use disorder involves identifying the causes of your addiction and developing the skills to cope and overcome them. Therapy is an essential tool in this process.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, individual counseling, and other treatments diagnose these thought patterns and behaviors and help you develop coping strategies and new, healthy habits. At Cirque Lodge, our therapy sessions are individualized and led by medical professionals to provide you with the most effective available treatment.
A difficult part of quitting drinking at home is the easy access to alcohol. Inpatient treatment removes this possibility.
At Cirque Lodge, you will be away from many of the triggers that make you want to drink. Our exclusive treatment facilities provide a comfortable environment that reduces stress and distractions and helps you focus on your recovery.
The World Health Organization considers alcoholism a chronic disease. Alcohol addiction causes changes in the brain that can be long-lasting. These changes may continue to produce urges to use alcohol even after years of sobriety.
At Cirque Lodge, our program focuses on holistic healing and lifelong recovery. We provide you with an individualized aftercare plan to help guide you on the rest of your journey.
For many people, this involves transitioning to outpatient care and joining the Alcoholics Anonymous community. Our Alumni Program keeps you connected with the center where you became sober, and you can become a mentor for another client and share the knowledge and skills you have learned.
Drinking alcohol in moderation is a part of our culture in the United States and worldwide.
