Chandler detox Substance abuse is a topic that modern society often takes for granted especially when we have heard countless testimonies and lectures of how addiction destroys a man’s life. Most of the time, we think we have a complete understanding of alcohol and drug addiction and we instantly assume that the simple and ultimate solution would be rehabilitation. We tend to overlook the fact that addiction and rehab are two concepts that are not as plain as they may seem. Substance abuse not only affects physical and mental health, but it also tears us apart from our family, community, and spirituality. While rehab is not simply a matter of taking the prescribed medication while following a generalized program towards slowly recovering from substance dependency as it should also be tailor-fit to each individual’s needs.

Tailor Fit; Individualized Chandler Detox

For instance, we see the 12-step recovery program strictly implemented throughout various rehab centers worldwide. Yet, a lot of patients still find it difficult to achieve complete and permanent healing. Studies have shown how the 12-step method is scientifically proven effective, so why are there patients who go back to their bad habits in spite of the treatment? It is lamentable how others have dismissed the method as “non-medical” or based on “blind faith”, reducing it to bad science when in fact it has helped countless people all over the world. This just goes to show that what works for most may not be as effective for others. This is one of the obstacles for effective treatment today and not all rehabilitation centers have overcome this dilemma. But achieving effective, personalized treatment should not be an impossible task, and SpringBoard Recovery has stepped up to the challenge. You can find a number of treatment centers in the Arizona area – for instance, Mesa, Phoenix, and Chandler detox centers offer a variety of quality services. In Scottsdale, SpringBoard Recovery is arguably the best choice for innovative drug and alcohol treatment and rehabilitation. We offer a variety of treatments and therapies to complement the traditional 12 steps. Daily schedules offer opportunities for individual and group activities, counseling, art therapy, life coaching and goal setting, yoga and meditation, and other daily responsibilities geared towards regaining your lost potentials. We provide an environment that is a sanctuary of comfort and luxury, cleanliness, peace and a sense of calm. Our vision consists of not only physical wellness but also community and spiritual healing through our dedication to the 12-step recovery program.

A Closer Look at the 12-step Recovery Program

Also termed as the “12 Steps”, this treatment method was originally intended for alcoholics by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Even so, it has been used to aid in recovery from substance abuse in general and has proven to be most effective. One can argue that any other Tucson rehab or Chandler detox (drugs and alcohol) center will definitely offer the same exact method, but SpringBoard Recovery has taken the program onto a whole new level by incorporating workshops and lifestyle activities to further strengthen its effectiveness. Most rehab programs are short term and so patients tend to regress to their old ways, thinking that their treatment is 100% complete. We must remember that recovery is not a matter of instantly eradicating a problem but a lifelong process that achieves success only through keeping faith with daily habits and lifestyle. The aspect of being healed and staying healed is ensured by the 12 Steps through:
  • The admission of being powerless over drugs and alcohol, making life unmanageable
  • Believing that a greater Power can help us towards complete restoration
  • Deciding to turn our lives, willfully and completely, into God’s hands
  • Assessing ourselves fearlessly to admit our moral shortcomings
  • Becoming honest to ourselves and to others about the exact nature of our wrongdoings
  • Becoming completely ready to allow God to remove these defects in our character
  • Humbly asking God to help us overcome our shortcomings
  • Making a list of people we have harmed and striving to make amends with them all, while:
  • Making sure we make amends to these people whenever possible, without further injuring them or others
  • Constantly checking ourselves for things we might have done wrong and promptly admitting them
  • Strengthening our contact with God through prayer and meditation as we seek to know His will and ask for the power to carry it out, and:
  • Spreading the message of our spiritual awakening to our fellow alcoholics and drug dependence sufferers as we practice these principles in our daily lives

Why We Stand Out

Some have voiced their uneasiness about the 12 Steps being too intertwined with religion and your regular Scottsdale treatment or Chandler detox (drugs and alcohol) center may not exactly revise the program to address such an issue. At SpringBoard Recovery, we live by these 12 Steps without forcibly implementing a single philosophy or spiritual outlook. People see the concepts of “God” and “Power” and automatically associate them with religion, but we go beyond these predispositions. Instead, we cater to the realization of forces, both good and bad, that is beyond us. We understand the constant tug of war between the impulse to drive to the store for another wine bottle or the inescapable temptation to contact your local drug dealer. So, we emphasize that with the proper guidance these powerful forces are defeated by the stronger powers of spirituality and the determination to achieve a full life. We guide you every step of the way towards a holistic recovery that focuses on your nutrition, community involvement and need for love. We understand that addiction is always accompanied by much pain, miserable isolation and tremendous guilt that you do not deserve. Our approach aims to eliminate these negativities and pave the way for a different kind of sobriety – one that is not just the removal of harmful drug and alcohol effects from the body. Instead, we help you work toward sobriety that is a complete cleansing of the mind, body, and spirit. Your rehabilitation will not become a source of shame; it is your recovery of a life that was once filled with excellent health, strong friendships, profound happiness, and success.

Frequently Asked Questions


When is Detoxing Off Drugs and/or Alcohol Necessary?

Not all drugs require a person to go through the detoxification process. But there is a list of those that do for the addict’s own safety. They are opioids, stimulants, benzodiazepines and alcohol. These drugs, though they can be incredibly dangerous to use, can also be risky to stop using abruptly.

Any time a person stops taking a drug or drinking alcohol once they are addicted, there can be complications during withdrawal. This is especially true for the list of drugs we mentioned above. We would like to take a look at alcohol as an example.

Alcohol is a drug that most people consider to be relatively safe. It is legal to purchase as long as you are 21 or over, and it is readily available in stores and restaurants. But once you are an alcoholic, stopping the use of alcohol will result in withdrawal symptoms that can be hard to manage. It can also put you at risk for a type of alcohol withdrawal that can be fatal in some cases. This is known as delirium tremens.

Delirium tremens, or DTs is severe alcohol withdrawal. It is most common among people who have been drinking excessively for a very long period of time. But it can happen to anyone, and there is no way of knowing if it will or not.

The symptoms of DTs include:

  • Body tremors
  • Sudden bouts of severe confusion
  • Changes in the way you think.
  • Hallucinations (auditory, visual or tactual)
  • Increased sensitivity to sound, light and touch)
  • A risk of seizures

Going through detox can help to prevent DTs or any other complications from happening. That is why it is required for certain types of drugs.

What is Medical Detox?

When a person goes through medical detox, they are actually participating in a medically supervised detoxification program. This type of treatment is highly recommended because most people need it in the earliest stages of recovery.

Medical detox programs promote the use of medications during the recovery process. There are many medications that have been approved for use during detox for certain types of addictions. For example, a person who is addicted to heroin may be prescribed a drug called Suboxone or Buprenorphine. Someone who is addicted to alcohol may be offered Vivitrol injections.

The goal of medical detox is to use medications to manage the individual’s withdrawal symptoms. Doctors may even use drugs off-label to treat various symptoms. For instance, they may prescribe Gabapentin to someone who is deemed to be at risk for seizures.

What is Holistic Detox?

Holistic detox is a form of detoxification that does not rely on medicine. Instead it utilizes more natural means of cleansing the body from toxins that can and often do contribute to withdrawal. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers use holistic treatments as a way to complement traditional medicine.

The two main types of holistic treatments that are used during detox are nutritional therapy and exercise. Proper nutrition is essential for recovery because most people with drug or alcohol addictions are vitamin and nutrient deficient. That can be extremely taxing on the liver and kidneys, and these two organs are responsible for processing toxins out of the body. A healthy diet can restore their function levels and help people feel better faster.

The body also detoxes itself through physical exercise. Not only are toxins released when you sweat, but when you work out, you experience the release of endorphins, which can help to improve your mental health.

What is the Detoxification Process Like?

The detoxification process will vary based on the individual and the type of drug(s) they are addicted to. If they are addicted to a prescription medication like Adderall or Vicodin, they may be able to taper their dosage down slowly in the beginning. This can help to effectively reduce the severity of withdrawal.

But if no tapering is needed or able to be done, most doctors will start their patients on medications as soon as it is safe to do so. They may remain on their detox drugs for a period of time, but most experts agree they should not take them long term. For some, this may only lead to a new addiction.

Most people find that they need to go through detox for about 7-10 days. Some may be ready to move on sooner, and some may need more time. Your recovery should be tailored to meet your needs based on how you are progressing.

Can I Choose an Outpatient Detox Program in Arizona?

While there are many outpatient detox programs in Arizona, we highly recommend that our clients choose to detox at an inpatient treatment center. This is because there is such a high risk of complications that can accompany withdrawal.

You may come across rapid detox programs that promise a quick and painless experience. While it may sound great, these types of treatment options carry risks of their own. Many of them use high doses of medications to force the toxins out of your body while you are either asleep with anesthesia or awake. It can be dangerous to detox this way.

Eventually, you may continue with detox on an outpatient basis if you are addicted to drugs like opioids. But in the beginning, it is best to start with an inpatient program for safety reasons.

Will My Health Insurance Pay for Detox in Arizona?

By law, your health insurance company is required to provide you with benefits for addiction treatment. That includes drug and alcohol detox. There is no way to tell how much they will pay toward your care until you understand what your specific policy includes.

Many people find that while detox is covered in full for health reasons, inpatient rehab may require a copay. A lot of health insurance policies will fully cover outpatient rehab. To find out what your insurance covers, please have your benefits verified in advance.
