Substance abuse is something that many people end up dealing with at some point in their life as even if a person is not addicted to a substance themselves, they will likely know someone who is affected by this disease.
In Arizona, substance abuse is on the rise with the state seeing a higher than the national average rate of drug and alcohol abuse. For this reason, substance abuse treatment centers are necessary. These treatment facilities offer a place for a person to recovery from their addiction in a safe environment. At SpringBoard Recovery a person who is recovering from drug and alcohol addiction will find an environment that is warm and welcoming. SpringBoard Recovery provides patients with the professional care that they need in order to overcome their addiction and go on to live a happier and healthier life.
How Can a Substance Abuse Center Help?
Drug alcohol treatment centers Arizona are designed to help people recover from their addictions. Substance abuse often requires additional care and assistance in order to fully recover after detoxification from the substance of choice.
SpringBoard Recovery helps people overcome their substance abuse by using a holistic approach to the recovery process. The goal of the center is to help each individual through every step of the recovery process with the ultimate goal being that the person will be able to re-enter society and live a drug and alcohol free lifestyle.
Substance abuse can affect every aspect of a person’s life including their work and their relationships with friends and family members. Since drugs and alcohol can alter a person’s behavior an important aspect of treatment is behavioral therapy. Learning how to change their behaviors from the ones that caused them to use drugs or alcohol to behaviors that are more positive is an important step of the recovery process.
About our Substance Abuse Program
Our substance abuse program at SpringBoard Recovery specializes in helping anyone who is dealing with addiction. When choosing to enter drug or alcohol rehab it is important to know that treatment will be the most successful if you choose to come on your own. Forcing someone into substance abuse treatment who is in denial can be a difficult process and often times fails to work in the long term.
If you know someone who is suffering from substance abuse and in denial about it, an intervention can be successful. A trained professional from our staff can help set up a positive environment in which an intervention may occur. Often times the hardest step in recovery for a person is admitting they have a problem in the first place.
At SpringBoard Recovery we understand that each case of substance abuse is different. This is why we first conduct an initial intake evaluation. During this evaluation a course of treatment will be created that is personalized for your particular needs.
We believe in a holistic approach to the recovery process. This means that we treat the body, mind, and the soul. It has been determined that oftentimes a person’s addiction stems from other mental or physical issues. This is why we work to address any underlying issues a person may have that may be causing them to turn to drugs or alcohol.
Committing to Recovery
The overall goal of our substance abuse program is to help you understand fully how drugs and alcohol are affecting your life. During the rehabilitation process it is important to overcome any denial that you may have about your addiction.
Once you understand that you have a problem it is important to set goals. Our experienced staff will work with you to determine both short and long term goals for your recovery.
Therapy sessions both individual and group are important for the recovery process as well. Individual therapy sessions can help you learn more about yourself and what may have caused your substance abuse. During these sessions a better understanding of the psychological factors that may have lead to your addiction will be discussed.
Group therapy is also important as this is a time to discuss your substance abuse with others who are dealing with the same type of addiction. Many people will form life long friendships during group therapy as these sessions can create personal bonds and also provide a support group to turn to when you are struggling with your recovery.
It is also important to discover your triggers. These “triggers” could be emotional or physical, caused by a relationship, or simply a part of your normal routine. Learning how to recognize and combat these triggers will be an important aspect of recovery. Learning how to avoid these triggers and also how to cope with them when they occur can help prevent you from returning to using drugs.
Triggers are also tightly integrated with dual diagnosis treatment. If you’re struggling with anxiety or depression for instance, these types of mental conditions can be your triggers.
If you are struggling with substance abuse or know someone who is struggling with substance abuse it is important to get help. If you need to have an intervention for a friend, family member, or co-worker, we can help you set this up. If you are personally struggling with drug or alcohol addiction and need help, contact us today. We will work with you every step of the way to help you recover from your addiction and lead a happier and healthier life.
