Types of Treatment

Upon arriving at our rehab clinic, you will meet with one of our clinicians who will complete a thorough assessment that will help us determine your most appropriate level of care. We will use the results of these tests and sit down with you and your loved ones to create an individualized plan of care. Your treatment plan may include some of the following techniques:

Detox is usually the first step in prescription medicine addiction rehab. The detox process will remove all drugs in your system in a safe, effective manner. You’ll be under 24-hour observation to treat any symptoms of withdrawal and ensure your safety. While you’re in detox, you will also be fully engaged in behavioral therapies and other treatment techniques.

Medication may be used in your treatment to combat some of the unpleasant side effects of withdrawal and slowly tapered down as you are better able to cope with your symptoms. Many clients require longer-term medication therapy to address the symptoms of co-occurring, comorbid mental health disorders. Medications will be closely monitored and adjusted as needed.

Individual therapy at our rehab clinic will provide you with space and time to work independently with a therapist to address some of the underlying concerns that may have led to the development of your addiction. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is very effective at teaching recovering addicts the ways in which their negative emotions and thoughts affect their behaviors. By learning to identify these emotions, you will be able to replace these negative thoughts with more positive ways of seeing the world.

Group therapy is a major component of the treatment process for those struggling with an addiction. Through groups at our rehab clinic, you will be able to work closely with other people struggling with addiction so that together you can develop healthier ways of coping with stress, how to identify triggers, and relapse prevention. We offer a number of groups every day on different topics and allow you the space to process your emotions in a supportive environment.

Family therapy is very important for your continued recovery and sobriety as they are going to be your biggest support system when you are done with inpatient treatment. At our rehab clinic, family sessions will work toward mending any broken bonds and strained relationships that may have come about as a result of your drug abuse.

Our rehab clinic proudly offers a number of experiential methods designed to supplement traditional therapeutic approaches. These experiential methods include:

  • Art
  • Yoga
  • Ceramics
  • Meditation
  • Exercise
  • Recreational therapy
