Residential drug treatment centers provide a multidisciplinary approach to facilitate addiction recovery. Comprehensive chemical dependency treatment services offer a structured therapeutic environment that begins with the detoxification/withdrawal process and extends through aftercare planning.
Adolescent and Teen Treatment
Substance abuse among teens remains at alarmingly high rates. More than ever, teens require drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers that cater to their unique needs.
When your teenage son or daughter arrives at treatment, an assessment is typically conducted to establish a program designed to examine behavioral and emotional issues that may have led to the substance abuse. Underlying emotional issues are referred to as co-occurring/dual-diagnosis disorders.
For teens and adults alike, there are numerous disorders that are masked by the abuse of substances. For instance, depression may lead to attempted suicide or self-mutilation. Drug and alcohol abuse also affects both young women and men with body image and eating disorders, such as bulimia and anorexia nervosa. Common underlying issues, such as ADHD, can also lead to substance abuse and should be addressed during treatment. Equally important, drugs and alcohol may contribute to or mask anger issues. Adolescents may also try to self-medicate to quell the extreme mood swings caused by bi-polar disorder or in rare cases schizophrenia. Unfortunately, substance abuse often leads to erratic and reckless sexual, criminal and associated deviant behaviors.

Our goal is to refer your child to an addiction treatment center that matches his or her needs. Treatment may include a variety of services, such as psychiatry/psychology, group therapy and counseling, family counseling and other srvices aimed at creating improved behavior and positive decision-making.
“Studies of youth also reflect the connection between longer care and a greater chance of recovery. A 2001 UCLA study of 1,167 adolescents receiving substance-abuse treatment found that those in treatment for 90 days or more had significantly lower relapse rates than teens in programs of 21 days.”
The type of treatment you or your loved one receives depends on you or your loved one’s needs.
Detoxification provides a safe place for removing drug toxins from the body. Nurses and doctors are on-hand to administer medications and ensure clients stay healthy during the detox process. After detox is complete, the treatment process can begin. Attempting to detox on one’s on can be dangerous, and often leads to relapse.
Residential treatment in a drug and/or alcohol treatment center provides clients with counseling and therapy. It is important to get to the underlying issues in order to achieve recovery. Many adult addicts have been using for many years and the underlying issues that have been masked by their substance abuse. Other adult addicts have been diagnosed with disorders such as bipolar, depression or dual-diagnosis disorders that must be effectively identified and treated while in treatment.
It is almost always recommended that individuals battling co-occuring disorers seek long-term treatment. 90-days or longer is considered more effective than 30-days, and continued aftercare promises to be more effective with a much lower chance of relapse.
“* Research published in 1999 by Bennett Fletcher, a senior research psychologist at the National Institute on Drug Abuse, has shown that though 90 days isn’t a magic number, anything less than that tends to increase the chances of relapse. One study, of 1,605 cocaine users, looked at weekly cocaine use in the year after treatment. It found that 35% of people who were in treatment for 90 days or fewer reported drug use the following year compared with 17% of people who were in treatment for 90 days or longer. The study was published in the Archives of General Psychiatry.
* Another study, part of an NIDA-funded project called Drug Abuse Treatment Outcome Studies, followed 549 patients who had several problems in addition to their drug use and who entered a long-term residential program. Those who dropped out of treatment before 90 days had relapse rates similar to those who stayed in treatment only a day or two. After 90 days, however, relapse rates dropped steadily the longer a person stayed in treatment.”

Drug Treatment Program Methods
Therapeutic Interventions include individual or group counseling and psychotherapy, and treatment services are usually provided by trained, certified professional therapists. Most therapeutic intervention programs rely on cognitive-based therapy which addresses irrational thinking and attempts to restructure thought processes.
Support Groups are usually conducted by a member of a recovery group with the assistance of prepared materials by a national organization. The most well known support groups are Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Most support groups are modeled on the 12 Steps of AA and rely on faith in a “higher power” to assist in achieving goals.
Drug and Alcohol Detoxification are treatment programs of planned withdrawal which may or may not include medication to assist in withdrawal. Length of detoxification depends on the substance ingested and the methods used for detoxification. Detoxification without other treatment has not been found to be effective in maintaining sobriety.
Treatment and Detoxification Protocols
Equine-assisted therapy combines the use of horses and experiential therapy. Horses, with their intuitive and sensitive nature, mirror what they receive from people, providing powerful insights and learning experiences in a therapeutic setting. Through one’s relationship with the horse, equine therapists facilitate the process of awareness and change.
Anger Management Treatment is provided in group settings through cognitive behavioral intervention. The treatment addresses the anger cycle, conflict resolution, assertiveness skills and anger control plans.
Treatment Programs depend on the type of drug, client background, length of abuse, motivation for treatment, environment and social support. It’s important to receive one-on-one counseling with a trained certified counselor or therapist, as well as group and education treatment when receiving alcohol or drug treatment.
