Am I Ready for Treatment?
Have you tried to cut back on your drinking in the past without much luck? Do you forego activities you enjoy due to prioritizing substance use? Are you tired of the way substance abuse makes you feel afterward? Has your use of substances caused issues in your life, such as with family members, friends, romantic partners, school, jobs, medical concerns, or the legal system? These are just a few of the signs that you may be ready for treatment. You don’t have to have all of the answers, you just have to be open to the possibility of change. If your life is far from what you thought it would be, treatment for substance abuse and mental health issues can help you get back on track.
Our trained therapists, counselors, nurses, physicians, and specialty staff will support you along each step of the way as you work through the challenges you face and develop healthier routines and thought patterns. Taking that first step and admitting that you need help is a brave accomplishment. We will support you in continuing this courageous journey and will work with you on everything you need to reroute your life and achieve the flourishing recovery that you deserve.
Will My Family and Friends be able to Support Me through Treatment?
We understand that deciding to pursue treatment for your substance use and mental health disorders can be a difficult decision to make, but it is important that you know this is not something you will do alone. In addition to the support of our therapists, counselors and specialty staff, we support healthy engagement with friends and family who are motivating and supportive of your emerging recovery. To assist in creating connections that are as healthy and sustaining as possible, we offer an intensive Family Program. This program allows you and your family to work through challenges that you both face in the addiction recovery process. We use a combination of group counseling, educational lectures, experiential activities, individualized therapy, and multi-family support groups that allow families to learn more about healthy communication, family recovery, codependency and more. It is important to understand that addiction is a family disease, and recovery is a family process. Our goal is to empower each member of the family system to do their own work and to engage in healthy practices that will give the entire system the greatest possible chance to heal.
