Arizona Drug Treatment
A Holistic Approach to Drug Treatment at SpringBoard Recovery
When a person becomes addicted to any type of drug, it can be a difficult road to recovery. Drug treatment is designed to help addicts stop compulsively seeking drugs and using them. Drug treatment may occur in a number of different settings, come in different forms, and last for different amounts of time.
At Springboard Recovery, we understand that individuals all have different reasons for seeking and using drugs. This is why we make it a point to treat each of our patients as individuals and create treatment plans that will help them on their road to recovery.
Since drug addiction is often a chronic disorder that is characterized by relapses, many people need a long term treatment plan as a one time treatment will often not be sufficient.
What Does Drug Treatment Look Like?
Drug addiction treatment looks different for each individual. At Springboard Recovery we believe in a holistic approach to treating drug addictions. Some of the components of our comprehensive drug treatment program include:
- Assessment: We will first look over your history of drug abuse
- Treatment planning: this step involves coming up with a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs and desires. Each plan is individualized to get the best results for each of the patients that walk through our doors.
- Support Groups: group therapy is often a part of an individual’s recovery plan. Discussing your addiction within a safe group setting can be extremely beneficial to your recovery.
- Behavioral therapy: this type of therapy looks behind some of the reasons that you have become addicted.
During the initial process we will discuss the possible need for detoxification. The detox process involves a medical team who will help you through the process of getting the drugs out of your system. Springboard Recovery works directly with several detox facilities and will help you determine which one will work best for your particular needs.
It’s important that you attend inpatient drug treatment for your detox. Medical supervision is provided and if necessary, our medical staff can intervene to make the detoxification process easier. At times, detoxing from drugs can be hard on the body, particularly the organs. Our bodies have strange ways of fighting against the detoxification process as they’ve become accustom to habitual drug use.
Once detox has occurred it is time to begin the necessary therapy to help you fully understand your addiction. Understanding why you have become addicted to any type of drug is one of the first steps in the recovery process.
Types of Drug Addictions
There are many different types of drugs that a person may become addicted to. This includes prescription medications. Treatment for prescription medication is often similar to treatment for illicit drugs that may affect the same brain systems.
For example, prescription medications that are stimulants affect the same brain systems as an illicit stimulant such as cocaine. Often, this addiction can be treated using behavioral therapies. Behavioral therapies may help motivate a person to participate in a drug treatment program. This type of treatment will help develop strategies for dealing with drug cravings, offer ways to avoid drugs, and advice on preventing a relapse. Behavioral therapy can help people improve relationships, communication, and overall family dynamics.
At Springboard Recovery we offer both group and individual therapy. Group therapy helps enforce behavioral contingencies and provide a social reinforcement for a drug free lifestyle.
At Springboard Recovery we understand that many people who are addicted to drugs may suffer from other health issues. This may include mental health issues such as anxiety and depression or diseases such as HIV. This is why we use a combination of therapies and services in order to meet each of our patient’s individual needs.
Our approach to drug addiction is one that takes the entire body in mind. This includes a spiritual element. We use the 12 step program within our facility because this program has been proven to work time and time again.
It is important to note that there is a spiritual side to healing. However, this does not mean that a person must be religious in order to be treated for drug addiction. While there are some that look to a higher power, others look for a higher power within themselves to help them through the healing process.
Understanding all of the reasons that a person has become addicted to drugs is an important aspect of the healing and recovering process. There is often many underlying reasons for a drug addiction. At Springboard Recovery we will work with you directly to help you fully understand your addiction so that your recovery will be successful.
