When an individual is ready to get help for a drug or alcohol addiction, they will want to know what to expect from a drug treatment center. There are some general addiction treatment phases that most residents experience when going through recovery, including detox, residential treatment, outpatient treatment, and extended care. The Discovery House offers a full continuum of care, as we aid our residents through every phase of drug addiction treatment they need to successfully complete our program.
Drug and Alcohol Detox
Drug detox is the first and usually the shortest of the addiction treatment phases. In order to recover from an addiction to a substance, a person must cleanse their body of that substance. Drug and alcohol detox can sometimes be dangerous, and should only be performed under the watchful eye of qualified professionals. The Discovery House provides clinically supervised detox for individuals and we have counselors on staff 24 hours a day to monitor the detox process around the clock and ensure the comfort and safety of our residents.
Drug Rehab Center
The Discovery House’s drug rehab center offers residential treatment in a private, home-like environment, making it easier for residents to commit to treatment and remain focused on recovery. Our Certified Substance Abuse counselor caseloads are a maximum of 3 residents per 1 counselor and are designed to deliver the most effective treatment experience possible.
Our inpatient rehabilitation process helps residents learn how to live life sober. One-on-one counseling, group counseling, family counseling, substance abuse and disease concept education, stress management and life skills training are used to help each resident develop the tools necessary to stay sober.
Outpatient treatment is typically recommended once someone has successfully completed a residential program. The Discovery House offers an outpatient treatment program that includes individual and group counseling sessions, Chemical Dependency Education, 12-Step Support Groups, Life Skills Techniques, Reintegration Social Skills Groups and Relapse Prevention and Continuing Care. Our therapists work with residents to help them learn how to handle the daily challenges life presents with new perspective, awareness of inner strength, effective communication tools, and problem-solving skills.
Extended Alumni Program for Addiction
The final and longest of the addiction treatment phases is an extended alumni program for addiction. This stage of recovery takes place when an individual goes back home and puts what they’ve learned into practice in real life. It is important at this time for the person to stay connected to their drug treatment center and therapists. Some individuals benefit from moving into a sober living facility for some time so they can receive extra help and care. Support groups are important in after care, to provide encouragement and motivation to avoid relapse.
The Discovery House’s alumni program meets monthly, and members are always welcome to come back to our residences. Our alumni program helps residents connect with others who have experience in maintaining sobriety and have reached important milestones in the recovery process.
