The vast majority of addicts and alcoholics will find stopping the habitual use of chemical substances entirely impossible without prolonged professional care. Addiction is a disease of the mind – one that causes physical changes to the neurological pathways within the brain, leading to impulsive and uncontrollable urges to obtain and use drugs and alcohol. In order for an individual to overcome addiction, his or her brain must essentially be rewired. Addiction, unlike any other psychological disorder or physical malady, also stems from a lack of spiritual wellbeing. Substance dependency is truly the only disease that afflicts the mind, body, and soul comprehensively and inclusively. Therefore, in order for a thorough and successful recovery, all three of these components must be adequately treated. Inpatient addiction rehab is carefully designed to heal addicts and alcoholics from the inside out, carefully uncovering and addressing all underlying causes of addiction while instilling recovering addicts with the tools and coping mechanisms they need to ensure prolonged and meaningful sobriety for years to come. There are several main components of every intensive program of inpatient treatment. Take a look at the following features as well as a list of specialized inpatient treatment options, to further decide whether or not inpatient care is the right next step for you.
Therapeutic Group Sessions
Therapeutic group sessions are absolutely essential to every inpatient program of addiction recovery. The group setting will prove to be absolutely crucial to maintained sobriety, especially by means of a 12-step program of addiction recovery (either Alcoholics Anonymous or something similarly structured). Openly discussing issues, concerns, feelings, and honest emotions amidst a group of like-minded peers is a skill necessary to prolonged recovery, and inpatient treatment allows clients to further develop that skill while fostering supportive, healthy, and lifelong friendships with women or men who can relate on a deep and personal level. Most group sessions will consist of open discussions revolving around topics pertaining to addiction and recovery. Some groups will focus in on one client at a time, and others will be purely educational. For a more comprehensive look at our particular group schedule, please call one of our representatives today.
One-On-One Therapy Sessions
One-on-one therapy sessions allow clients to explore personal issues and underlying causes of addiction on a far deeper and more thorough level. Each client will be paired with a licensed therapist and addiction specialist, and he or she will meet this therapist for roughly an hour one to two times per week (depending on the amount of clients in residence at the time). Once a client has graduated from inpatient treatment, he or she will have the option of continuing with his or her assigned therapist for as long as necessary. This an important part of aftercare that should not be overlooked.
Holistic Methods of Healing
Many inpatient treatment facilities employ holistic methods of addiction recovery, ranging from courses in guided meditation and yoga classes to art therapy and acupuncture. Holistic methods of treatment have proven extremely successful in bolstering the spiritual and emotional portions of addiction recovery. For more information on holistic treatment, please call one of our representatives.
Relapse prevention courses are essential to recovery, seeing as they help to instill newly sober men and women with the coping mechanisms necessary to overcoming stressful, real life situations without the use of drugs or alcohol. After graduating from inpatient treatment, recovering men and women will be faced with triggers, cravings, and an array of anxiety-producing situations on a near daily basis. They will need to know how to effectively and productively cope with their emotions and feelings in a healthy way. Relapse prevention courses will instill clients with the self-knowledge necessary to do so.
Specialty Inpatient Treatment Facilities
Because addiction is far from a one-size-fits all disease, addiction recovery should be a highly personalized and individualized experience. There are many specialty treatment options available, ranging from LGBT and gender-specific facilities to facilities for high-level business executives, pregnant women, and first responders. No matter what your personal history or background, no matter what your specific needs and preferences, there is undeniably a treatment facility for you. For more information, call today.
