Congratulations, you’ve decided to enter a treatment program! Sometimes, as with any undertaking, not knowing what to expect can cause a lot of worry and nervousness. This is perfectly normal. Most people are nervous before they make life changes. Knowing what sorts of things you can expect can help to calm those nerves.
Understanding how treatment works is no different. Learning about how the rehab process works can go a long way toward helping to make you feel more confident in your decision to seek help from a treatment facility. Here’s what you can expect at Turning Point and Focused Recovery.
Your first call to our office
Once you’ve made the decision to seek treatment, you’ll consult with our admission’s team. We’ll talk about your decision to seek help, your substance of choice, and how long you’ve been struggling. Our team will go over your options based on what is best and safest for you to proceed.
Detoxing is the first phase
If necessary, the first step of getting to sobriety is detoxification. We offer medically supervised detox through our inpatient program. During your initial appointment, whether you will detox inpatient or outpatient will be discussed. Medical complications, length of use, and quality and frequency of use are all factors that go into the recommendations to seek inpatient rather than outpatient treatment.
Treatment for the addiction is the second phase
Once the detox process is underway, support throughout every step is provided for maintaining a sober lifestyle. This means that the individual entering treatment will no longer use drugs or alcohol. You will then begin our IOP program and learn life and coping skills that will help you remain clean and sober once the treatment program ends.
Our inpatient program offers structure, support, nutritional guidance and much more. Our outpatient program will provide a similar level of support.
Once an individual has gone through the second phase, he or she has had therapy aimed at getting to the root of the addiction, received counseling on spotting trigger situations and developing skills to prevent relapse.
Ongoing support and aftercare is the third phase
Once an individual has completed our IOP program, a plan will be in place for aftercare and support. For some people, this involves support groups and ongoing therapy, for other people, this involves sober living arrangements. There are greater chances of success if when leaving a treatment program you follow the course of action for your planned aftercare. Sober living programs can be a real asset to those coming into treatment programs from environments that are not conducive to long-term recovery goals.
