Come to SBR for Chandler Addiction Treatment
Depending on the type of addiction, the steps involved in the rehabilitation process of a person’s drug or alcohol abuse will vary. Other factors include the person seeking rehab and the plan used in the Chandler treatment (drugs and alcohol). However, every recovery process is likely to have the same key elements: intake, detoxification, rehab, and ongoing recovery.
The Addiction Treatment Intake Process
This is a process where you can determine whether a certain rehab center is the right one for you. In this stage, you can ask questions to the rehab center.
Here at SpringBoard Recovery, we will also ask you some questions. You may also have to undergo screenings or diagnostic tests to find out your particular needs, the stage of your addiction, and how we can personalize your treatment plan. We will also want to know the severity of your drug or alcohol abuse, your personal history of addiction, and your family history of addiction.
There are lots of options available when it comes to programs for Chandler treatment (drugs and alcohol) on drug and alcohol abuse. It is important that you search for the program that is a good fit for you.
To increase your chances of long-term sobriety and health, you need to be comfortable with the center that you have chosen. This way, you are more likely to stay with the program and finish it.
If you are struggling with drug or alcohol abuse, inpatient services aim to remove you from your olds habits and place you into a treatment center that offers round-the-clock care from experienced staff. This Chandler treatment will help you eliminate stress by removing your ability to relapse and keeping you away from temptation.
We often recommend residential or inpatient treatment for those who have co-existing mental health or medical conditions (dual diagnosis) and those with long-term history of drug or alcohol abuse.
The possible locations of inpatient treatment are either one of the following:
- Hospital – this provides more intensive access to medical services as well as supervision from healthcare specialists.
- Residential facility – some inpatient rehabilitation centers may not offer 24/7 access to healthcare specialists, but they offer round-the-clock care from qualified staff personnel. When necessary, they can arrange access to different hospital-based services.
Luxury inpatient centers provide lavish, resort-like services in order for you to be more comfortable while in rehab.
Executive inpatient centers offer high-end setting to accommodate busy professionals, which allow them to continue their work tasks while still at an inpatient treatment facility.
Outpatient treatment is quite similar to inpatient services, but you are allowed to go home after your Chandler treatment. If you have important familial or work responsibilities, outpatient treatment will allow you to continue some of those obligations.
This type of treatment is a good alternative for individuals with short-term or milder drug or alcohol abuse.
At the beginning of the rehab process, all alcohol and most drug addictions involve a stage of detox. Detox aims to eliminate all traces of alcohol or drugs in your system. Some patients also need to maintain medications to relieve withdrawal symptoms connected with certain drugs, such as heroin and opiate prescription drugs.
The following are the factors that affect the severity of the detoxification procedure:
- The specific drug and dosage used
- The length of time the drug or alcohol has been used
- The metabolism and unique body composition of the individual
- If the individual has any other addictions
The detox process is mostly safe when done with the supervision of a medical professional. Detox for some individuals and substances is possibly severe or even fatal in some cases, so it is not recommended for them to detox on their own.
When an individual consumes alcohol or takes a drug on a regular basis, their body becomes used to having certain levels of it. When the substance is flushed out of their system, they may start experiencing withdrawal symptoms. The symptoms may start to surface within a few hours, depending on the substance used. However, they normally tend to show within 24 hours.
Depending on the abused substance, some of the usual withdrawal symptoms include:
- Severe fatigue
- Runny nose
- Muscle tension and pain
- Problem concentrating
- Rapid heart rate
- Troubled breathing
- Decreased appetite
- Extreme depression
- Trembling or shaking
- Inability to sleep
- Heart attack
When individuals have undergone the initial detox from alcohol or drugs, the next step of the Chandler treatment is rehab. At this stage, they will get to the root of their addictions and deal with those issues in order for them to successfully move forward without returning to alcohol or drugs.
We conduct individual behavioral therapy through the following:
- Patients will do some inner work by realizing when they started using drugs or alcohol and when they began abusing it.
- We offer strategies to patients on how they can spend their time focusing on new interests or hobbies.
- Patients will learn to recognize the triggers of drug or alcohol use and how to manage these triggering situations when they happen. They will learn how to devise a plan for different tempting situations and implement this plan and avoid relapse.
- We impart time management skills to allow patients to use their time better, so they would have less chances of thinking about relapse.
Individual behavioral therapy deals with the thoughts of the patients concerning drug or alcohol abuse as well as their thoughts about life in general.
The group sessions we conduct at SpringBoard Recovery allow patients to interact with other people who are also recovering from addiction. Often, it helps them when they know they are not alone. Likewise, some find comfort when others share their experiences with addiction and recovery.
Patients are not yet finished with recovery even after they are done with their rehab program. For many people, recovery may be a lifelong process, which requires constant attention and work.
Before leaving the center for Chandler treatment, the patient will speak with therapists to lay out an idea for aftercare. Many centers have follow-up programs to help patients while they return to normal life. They may also opt for structured sober living. This will provide a helpful transitional time for patients before they go back to normal life.
