With all of the information available you would be surprised how many people do not understand alcohol addiction or what alcohol addiction treatment infers. Many are told that a person has to hit rock-bottom and lose everything before alcohol addiction treatment will work. Others believe that alcohol addiction treatment really doesn’t work. Adolescence is a critical time for preventing drug abuse and alcohol abuse since prevention may reduce the risk of progressing to later abuse and addiction and the subsequent need for drug and alcohol addiction treatment.
Alcoholism, also known as alcohol addiction, is a condition defined as a disease which is treatable and recovery is possible. This disease is chronic and progressive and can be fatal without alcohol addiction treatment.
An individual that displays the symptoms above would be a candidate for addiction treatment provided in a residential alcohol addiction center. People who are not alcoholic do not understand why someone suffering from alcohol addiction can’t just stop drinking. Remember that alcoholism is a disease and just as someone cannot recover from diabetes or cancer through only willpower, they cannot recovery from alcohol addiction without receiving the proper treatment. Individuals suffering from alcohol addiction are in the grip of an intense craving and physical addiction that makes discontinuing alcohol consumption almost impossible without alcohol addiction treatment.
Alcohol treatment programs should be as unique as the individual being admitted into alcohol treatment since every person has special needs and challenges. At Bridge Centre the alcohol treatment programs are focused on the individual, not the group. While group process is important, treating the individual is imperative in order to match the treatment setting and services to the individual’s needs. This allows the individual to have a greater opportunity for a successful recovery when returning to their families, workplace and society following treatment.
Another aspect of Bridge Centre’s alcohol treatment program is our ability to provide specialty treatment components for:
The philosophy of our alcohol treatment center is built upon the belief that alcoholism is a disease. By treating it as a disease, we provide similar care to that of our drug treatment center. In both programs, our focus is treatment provided in a number of carefully established steps. These steps include:
Our alcohol treatment center has designated certain buildings for specific recovery services. One such example is our alcohol detox center. By having our medical detox program in its own treatment setting on campus, it allows our nurses to pay closer attention to the patients in detox so as not to be distracted by those who are in the later stages of their alcohol rehab program. You will find we have given a great deal of thought and consideration in designing Lakeview in order to produce the best possible treatment experience for you through superior facility design.
At Bridge Centre we believe that recovery is best pursued in a comfortable environment. The alcohol treatment process is not an easy one, but our healing environment certainly helps. After completing detox our residents are ready to continue treatment in well appointed semi-private rooms with access to a complete gym, dining room, and counseling areas.
Substance abuse treatment studies have shown that the more comprehensive care an alcohol treatment center provides, the greater a person's chances are of achieving a lasting recovery. Our recovery apartments are designed to provide a powerful continuum of care. This final step provides those finishing their residential alcohol treatment an opportunity to step outside the comfort zone of the alcohol treatment center and experience the "real world" while still having weekly therapy and other support services.
