Frequently Asked Questions
Taking a leap into the unknown of recovery can be daunting but you’re not alone and you don’t have to be afraid. We know you have reservations and maybe some well-intentioned concerns, let us answer some questions and put you at ease.
What is Addiction Rehabilitation?
What is Detox and What Can I Expect?
The detoxification process is an early, essential step in any treatment program for addiction. During this process, your body will flush all of the toxic effects of drugs and alcohol from itself. Every person who goes through detox will vary greatly in their experience. Some of this variance is due to the level of dependency and substance of choice and other overall health factors. For many, this can be an unpleasant experience and we strongly urge you to take part in a medically supervised program to help alleviate symptoms and risks associated with the process.
What Happens After Detox?
Once you are medically stable, you’ll be ready to enter into treatment and begin the process of rehab. During rehab you’ll be introduced to your personal treatment plan which may include various therapeutic interventions such as individual therapy, group counseling, and possibly medication therapy. The goal of treatment is to learn about yourself, identify any underlying issues, develop the skills necessary to avoid or overcome high-risk situations and triggers and cultivate your relapse prevention skills so that you can maintain sobriety long-term
What is Aftercare?
As you work your way through the program and your nearing the end of your treatment program, your medical team will help you develop a suitable aftercare plan for your sobriety. Your aftercare plan may include ongoing therapy such as individual sessions or peer support groups, or arrangements for sober living if necessary.
Will Rehabilitation Cure My Addiction?
Addiction is considered to be a treatable condition. We’ve used staged-of-change research to help us develop our behavioral change programs to help you live a stronger, healthier life. What’s important to realize is that treatment and recovery doesn’t end at the end of your rehab stay or program, it’s an ongoing, life-long process. Managing your addiction includes learning how to navigate through the peaks and valleys of daily life without returning to the crutch of addiction. This process takes commitment, hard work, and dedication to living healthier and stronger.
What Will Happen If I Relapse?
On your lifelong journey to sobriety, there is always the chance that you could have a relapse at one point or another. The difference now will be how you view relapse. We view relapse not as a failure, but instead, as an obstacle that you will have the tools and skills necessary to overcome this time. You’ll gain a support network to help you get through these tough times and you’ll know who and where to turn to in the event that you need extra help or support to maintain your sobriety.
