Finding the right drug rehab program can be quite an undertaking.
Because individuals have different needs, backgrounds and struggles, different treatment approaches might be needed.
There are also considerations depending on the severity of your addiction, what you are addicted to and if you are dealing with any co-occurring mental health concerns. This article looks to answer some of the general questions that may exist when it comes to treatment. We hope it provides you with the answers you are seeking.
The first intervention or process for drug addiction involves detoxification.
This is typically a medical procedure for stabilizing someone addicted to drugs and treating them for withdrawal. The length of drug detox does vary on several factors including how long it takes a person to stabilize, the type of substance they were abusing (some drugs take longer than others), and how long a person has been abusing the substance. Usually, it can take a day or two. For more serious cases of dependency or substance abuse, it can take longer.
Do I need it? “If you have been abusing drugs up to the point of going to rehab, the answer is probably yes. If you have been able to get yourself off of drugs before treatment, you may not need it. Still, a medical assessment is primarily performed before admission to determine if you need detoxification.
Studies have shown that it takes many approaches or interventions to treat the disease of addiction.
There are also many principles involved in effective treatment. Here are a few examples of what is involved in a drug rehab program to help with addiction.
Another principle to effective treatment is that an individual receives care over a sufficient amount of time.
Now, this is a disease that affects individuals differently, so what is adequate time in drug addiction treatment for one may not be the best approach for another. The standard in the industry is usually 90-days or 3 months. This can involve a 30-day inpatient program and then supportive outpatient treatments or sober living. It can be 90-days all spent in inpatient or outpatient programs. A treatment provider should be able to give you a professional assessment on how long you should be in treatment and what you need for long-term drug rehab.
At our facility, primary care and continuing care begin with a 30-day program. In most cases, residents will extend beyond that to 60, 90 or greater rehab stays. Residents are always working with a primary counselor on their recovery process. The counselor is always available to talk about extending treatment and options for continuing the recovery process. We also hold daily 12-step meetings at our Studio facility and weekly aftercare meetings for alumni to assist them with long-term support for recovery.
The Lodge is located above the world-renowned Sundance Ski resort owned by Robert Redford.
This residential facility houses private and semi-private rooms for residents seeking the ultimate in privacy. The Studio is a 100,000-square-foot facility located minutes away at the mouth of Provo Canyon. This facility also houses many elements of experiential therapy, including the world’s largest indoor ropes course. We are passionate about what we do and are dedicated to providing the most effective drug rehab experience for residents.
Treatment for the many types of drug or alcohol abuse is accomplished at both facilities. It is carried out through a caring and effective program. The Studio is situated on a private gated estate with over twelve beautifully landscaped acres. It includes a pasture and horse arena, where much of the equine therapy is conducted. One advantage to our facilities and addiction treatment program is the remoteness of our location.
