Starting Your Recovery Journey

There is no question among experts in the drugs and alcohol treatment profession that the aspects of your typical environment, the people, places, and things you encounter every day, can be triggers for substance abuse. We often don’t even realize that certain things in our homes, workplace or social life are causing stress in our lives until we remove them or we remove ourselves from the situation. That’s why it is often recommended that people seek drug and alcohol rehab, or any other addiction treatment, away from their current area if possible. There is not only a physical but a mental and emotional component to relocating for substance abuse treatment. So when you decide to seek treatment for yourself or one of your loved ones, think about not just what’s available in your immediate area but also some options in other towns or cities, or even states. It’s not an easy choice to decide whether you need addiction treatment for yourself or someone close to you. However, we’re here to help. Call us today with any questions you may have about our substance abuse treatment programs including inpatient, outpatient, and other flexible options.

Starting Your Recovery Journey

When you decide you want to recover from addiction, talking to someone who is an expert in drug or alcohol abuse rehab can be key. Knowledge is power, and getting the right information for you to make educated choices about addiction therapy programs is a big step in the right direction. There are a lot of options out there, and finding the addiction treatment program that’s a great fit for you will be the foundation you need to make a positive change in your life. Many addiction treatment centers offer options like family therapy, group therapy, PTSD treatment, and even holistic choices like art and music therapy, or massage therapy.

Most drug addiction treatment center professionals will agree that a variety of different therapies during recovery can help an individual maintain their sobriety over the long term. If a patient becomes bored or detached during their initial stages of drug or alcohol treatment and recovery, they are less likely to feel motivated to continue and this can lead to a relapse. Preventing relapses and helping clients learn to avoid them in the future is one of the most important parts of the substance abuse treatment process.

Starting your recovery journey can be daunting but we always make it as streamlined as possible. We verify insurance coverage to make sure you’re getting all of the benefits you are eligible for, schedule general health and wellness appointments so we have a good baseline for you, and go over any underlying conditions that may help us customize your care. We want to make sure we have all the information we need to provide you with the best addiction recovery experience possible, while making you comfortable with the process, too. 

Benefits of Moving For Rehab

Drug or alcohol addiction can affect a person’s mind, body, and spirit. When something is so pervasive in your life, sometimes it takes a big change in order to move forward. Do you have to move when you want to be successful in a recovery program? No. However, a simple change in scenery can be the catalyst you need in order to propel yourself into the next phase of your life. You may not be immediately comfortable in your new surroundings, but putting distance between you and some of the things that lead you to use drugs or alcohol can help you focus on your substance abuse treatment more completely. When you take part in a recovery program, even at one of the many inpatient drug rehab centers that may be available near you, knowing that you can walk out and go right back to your old life can be appealing when the going gets tough in rehab. By moving, this familiarity won’t be present and you can make a fresh start wherever you choose to take part in a substance abuse treatment program. No matter where you live if you’d like to discuss the options you have available to you regarding inpatient and outpatient drug rehab outside of your local area, give us a call. We can discuss all of the components of a comprehensive drug or alcohol rehab program for you, including options that include you moving to attend part or all of your treatment. 

Is Relocation Right For Me in Recovery?

For many people, relocation is part of the process when it comes to drug or alcohol recovery. Sometimes in life, there is just too much stress and negative energy caused by people and things in our environment and change is necessary. The good thing about incorporating relocation into your substance abuse treatment plan is that you can do it in phases. You can choose an inpatient drug rehab program in a new city or state, and that will be phase one. You can take advantage of sober living homes as part of your outpatient drug rehab and that can be phase two. Once you are ready to live on your own and be 100% integrated back into society, you can continue an individual therapy program that will support you for as long as you need. 

No one ever plans to need to take part in a drug or alcohol rehab program. However, you are not alone in a lot of ways. First of all, thousands of people seek and begin treatment every day. It’s a good thing to ask and get help. Second, there are highly trained professionals just waiting to assist you to take the first step in your addiction recovery and all the steps after that one, too. You should never feel like you have to go through this alone because you absolutely do not. Even if you are not sure if you’re ready to get started yet or not, give us a call and one of our amazing counselors will answer any questions you have about how the recovery treatment process works. 

How Residential Rehab Works

Residential or inpatient drug rehab are programs where a client stays at an addiction recovery treatment center 24 hours a day for usually a set period of time. However, there are some programs that may have flexible time periods involved. In most cases, patients take part in a 30, 60, or 90-day program that includes multiple types of treatment which can include everything from medical drug detox to cognitive behavioral therapy to introduction to an aftercare program. There are also holistic therapies offered, which can be incorporated into an overall care plan. Patients in inpatient drug rehab usually have a set schedule of meals, and therapy sessions which can include a family therapy program, time for exercise and other activities, and regular lights out and wake up times. This structure is often helpful for someone who may have had some or a lot of chaos in their life due to drugs or alcohol. It is always suggested that inpatient drug rehab be followed up with any outpatient recovery program and our treatment specialists and counselors will go over all of the details of transitioning with you and your loved ones as needed. 

Sober Living During Outpatient Rehab

Sober living homes are an excellent way to have a smooth transition between inpatient drug rehab and outpatient drug rehab. Sober living houses provide a safe, drug-free environment for people who are in the beginning phase of their addiction recovery. This type of supportive environment can be just what a person needs to stay on track as part of their substance abuse program. Sober living homes allow a person to go to work, school, and conduct most of the normal affairs of their life while coming home to a structured environment each day or evening. Many sober living homes provide on-site outpatient rehab counseling, or an individual can continue their therapy sessions at a drug rehab center nearby. This can also be a way for someone to have a stepping stone to a new home if they have relocated as part of their overall drug addiction treatment plan. Many sober living houses also have aftercare program steps that take place or are supported on-site, which helps greatly with relapse prevention. 

How To Find The Best Rehab for Your Needs

Whenever you are making a major decision in your life, buying a house or car, taking a new job, or moving to a new city, it’s important to do the right amount of research. It’s the same when you are considering substance abuse treatment. There is no one plan that is right for everyone. That’s why we always develop an individual therapy program for each client. So be sure to ask questions about inpatient drug rehab, outpatient drug rehab, holistic therapies, our family therapy program, and anything else you think might be part of what you want to do in your overall addiction recovery plan. It’s never too soon or too late to call us about drug addiction treatment for you or a loved one. Call us today at (855) 458-0050!
