Extensive research by the National Institute of Drug Abuse and other scientists and medical experts has shown that addiction is treatable.
It is estimated that there are over 17 million Americans in active recovery. However, this does not mean that it is always easy. Long-term recovery requires commitment, dedication, and support.
Inhabiting Yourself Again
The word ‘rehabilitation’ comes from the Latin ‘re’ meaning ‘again’ and ‘habilitar’ meaning ‘to inhabit.’ Rehabilitation means inhabiting yourself again. It involves rebuilding your skills, passions, and relationships with others.
Rehabilitation is the process of reconnecting with your true self and rediscovering a life free from addiction.
Rehabilitation into Society
Rehabilitation is not only about ending your use of drugs or alcohol; it is about enabling you to live a productive and joyful life in the society that surrounds us.
Your recovery journey does not end when you leave the center. The years that follow can be challenging, and there will inevitably be difficult times. Rehabilitation involves developing the skills and tools you need to overcome these challenges and continue on the path to lifelong recovery.
Involving your family members, friends, and other loved ones in the rehabilitation experience is fundamental. Having a strong, supportive network is invaluable in helping us overcome the challenges we face, and effective treatment requires learning how to support one another in healthy and sustainable ways.
At Cirque Lodge, we invite the entire family to our rehab facilities to participate in Family Week. We help you understand more about substance abuse disorder and how it affects the family unit and explore how you can support each other to heal your relationships as part of the recovery process.
Cirque Lodge also connects you to local and online support groups to provide continued help and guidance once you have left our center. Local support groups allow you to meet others in your community who have shared your experiences. Knowing that others around you understand how you feel can make the transition back into society a lot easier.
A Positive and Enriching Environment
Rehabilitation should be an enriching experience that helps you grow, reconnect with your true self, and rediscover your love of life.
At Cirque Lodge, we offer experiential therapy where you can develop your skills through exciting practical activities. You can go horse-riding, complete a high ropes course, or go mountain hiking and fly fishing.
Experiential therapy allows you to work through personal issues in a hands-on way. It helps you grow in confidence and develop a positive sense of self.
Experiential activities take place in our state-of-the-art treatment facilities and the great outdoors. The spectacular mountain scenery surrounding Cirque Lodge offers unique opportunities for personal growth and inspiration for your recovery journey.
The Experience That Suits You
Everyone’s experience of addiction is different. Each individual has a different story, circumstances, and needs and effective treatment must be individualized and tailored to suit you.
Individualized treatment involves identifying the causes of your addiction. At Cirque Lodge, we begin with an in-depth assessment of the nature of your addiction. We diagnose other mental health conditions, social issues, or co-occurring disorders that underlie your addiction and treat them as part of your program.
Our medical experts continually evaluate your treatment plan throughout your stay and make any necessary changes or improvements. We work hard to ensure that you are receiving the best possible treatment throughout your rehabilitation experience.
