I f you or someone you love is going through the trials of addiction, you need professional help. This isn’t something to be ashamed of, your addiction is not a moral failing. It is a chronic brain disorder. Once you come to terms with your addiction as a medical issue, you will have taken the first step.
The next stage is to admit that this a problem you can’t control or overcome on your own, and that you need focused and professional assistance. Then, you will be on your way to recovery. Calling our addiction treatment centers to set up an appointment is the next step, read on to see what happens after that.
The first thing you will do when you come to one of our addiction recovery clinics is go through the intake process. Once you have been enrolled in the right substance abuse treatment facility for your needs, you will begin detox. While your body goes through the process of eliminating the harmful toxins that keep you dependent, you will go through some unpleasant side effects.
To ensure that these symptoms are properly managed, we need to watch over this process every step of the way. This is crucially important, as detox is the foundation of your whole recovery. Once we have established physical sobriety, we will move on to the mental aspect of addiction in therapy.
After detox, you will begin therapy with a personal counselor. In these first one-on-one sessions, you will work the professional to design a custom addiction treatment plan that is based upon your needs and comprehensively altered to meet them. This is also where you will be screened for dual diagnosis mental health issues. Around half of the clients we treat are currently going through mental health issues in addition to substance abuse.
