Rehab Treatment Program
Residential rehab, provides room and board in addition to the alcohol detox, one-on-one therapy, group counseling, and aftercare services as described below-
Alcohol detox is the process of cleansing the body of alcohol-related toxins. During detox, the individual stops drinking alcohol while under the supervision of medical and counseling professionals. The presence of these trained professionals is crucial, as most individuals will suffer from withdrawal symptoms during alcohol detox, and need support and care in order to avoid relapse or any health problems associated with the process.
Individual counseling is the process by which individuals address their past issues head-on, and learn why they led to chronic alcohol consumption. Once these issues have been “smoked out,” the individual can begin to develop better life strategies and decision-making skills that will help them cope with stress in a more productive way.
. Group sessions involve meeting with other recovering addicts in the alcohol treatment program to discuss past experiences and work together to help one another find solutions to the problem of alcoholism. These sessions are a boon for those individuals who felt alone and isolated because of their drinking problem. The support network that is formed between the participants can help speed up the recovery process.
Many people often wonder, “What happens when alcohol treatment is over?” Twelve-step programs and follow-up counseling help the individual make the transition back into the “real world.” This is important because oftentimes, family and friends cannot relate to the recovering patient’s experience and aftercare fills that void with understanding and accountability.
Benefits of Residential Rehab Treatment
A chance to focus solely on recovery.
The outside world may be filled with distractions and temptations that can lead to relapse. When an individual enters residential alcohol rehabilitation, they are leaving these “environmental” factors behind and entering into a place where the only thing to worry about is recovery and getting well. Residential alcohol treatment facilities are designed to offer a place of peace.
Individuals with a serious alcohol problem may have reached a point where they can no longer function without drinking. For these individuals, the 24/7 supervision provided by the staff at a residential alcohol treatment facility can be crucial. The staff of counselors and medical professionals in residential rehab facilities help make sure that the individual stays the course and does not harm themselves.
Residential treatment programs provide additional structure, as the bulk of everyone’s daily schedule is laid out in advance. Recovering addicts benefit mightily from this detailed scheduling, as their lives have likely been turned upside down after years of alcohol addiction.
Programs that enhance wellness
In addition to detox and counselling we also offer a chance to enhance wellness of the mind, body and spirit. These programs can be quite diverse and may include yoga and meditation, nutritional counselling, exercise programs.
Peer group support
Living alongside other recovering alcoholics can be a transformative event for many individuals. The chance to share experiences during group counselling, and spend time talking about goals, dreams and family in the lounge areas can form a much-needed support structure for those individuals who lived in isolation with their drinking problem for many years.
