Recovering from addiction involves several stages, as substance abuse is an insidious problem. Addiction can either occur after short or long-term abuse of addictive substances. Though substance dependency exhibits similar tendencies across clients, various biological, psychological, demographic, and social aspects affect its severity. Given that each client is unique and there is no single rehabilitation program can work for all clients, we provide our clients with customized plans for recovery. Our drug rehab programs are composed of similar stages, activities, and processes.
At our substance abuse treatment facility, located in Saint Paul, Minnesota, we provide help to recovering clients in an addiction recovery program. The process commences when a client becomes aware of their problem. A client’s realization may arise from conversations with friends, colleagues, or friends. In some instances, awareness occurs after considerable pain, loss of finances, legal, or occupational challenges. However, recovery requires that a client transit from denial to acceptance followed by action.
Our substance abuse treatment facility assists clients through the transition stage. During this phase, we educate clients about their addiction and its impact on others. In this way, we equip our clients with useful insights and valuable information about addiction recovery. To augment this stage, we provide motivation that helps clients value the importance of abstinence and moderation. It is during this phase that we admit clients into our addiction treatment program. Upon admission, clients embark on the detox phase.
In the detox phase, clients reside within the drug rehab facility and take part in frequent appointments at the center’s drug detox clinic. Our detoxification program helps eliminate traces of addictive substances from the body. As the body adjusts, clients typically experience withdrawal symptoms. As a result, our professionals assist in managing these symptoms. Though detox is a safe process, it can pose serious risks to individuals undergoing therapy. For this reason, it is essential that detox occurs only under supervision in a licensed drug detox clinic.
Specialists at our Saint Paul, Minnesota addiction recovery center recognize the role played by dual diagnosis in order to treat co-occurring conditions during rehabilitation. The importance of dual diagnosis cannot be overstated. Psychological problems may trigger relapses into addiction. Failure to address mental health issues can lead to an individual engaging in self-medication.
Our Recovery Programs
After completing the stages mentioned above, clients proceed with a course of treatment. At our addiction treatment center, we provide individual, group, and family therapy options. In our addiction treatment facility, admitted clients have access to recreational facilities, guidance, and counseling professionals, as well as a tranquil environment in which to pursue recovery. By engaging family members in therapy, we ensure that an individual has access to moral support. This is important especially after completing the treatment program.
After Therapy Support Services
The final stage in the recovery process is abstinence and sustained recovery. Recovery is a lifelong process that requires commitment and ongoing vigilance. As such, it has its challenges necessitating the need for continuous support, attention, and dedication. At Bowers Recovery we provide aftercare support services once therapy is complete. In all our drug rehab centers, these services are provided on a weekly basis. During this period, clients have access to support while keeping us in touch with their recovery journey.
Where necessary, we can arrange to place a client in sober living quarters. At these houses, clients find support and inspiration to continue living an addiction free and healthy life. Our counselors provide regular consultative and therapy sessions to clients who need extra help. We also encourage our clients to participate in 12 step programs. Joining these organizations helps to integrate clients with their communities.
More importantly, identifying the resources required for recovery is the most important goal of rehabilitation. From the day of admission into our addiction recovery facility, we work with clients to help them build coping skills and identify practical tools. Recovery is not just getting rid of addictive substances from the body, but the creation of a new way of life that provides clients with greater confidence and purpose.
