You can recover from Alcoholism
Your alcohol addiction is a disease that affects every aspect of your life, from your physical well-being and psychological stability to your outlook on life. Just as no two people are alike, no two addictions are the same, either. That’s why a cookie-cutter approach to treatment focused only on addiction is not usually effective.
The key to achieving long-lasting sobriety is having a personalized treatment plan that focuses on every aspect of your mind and body, not just your addiction. At Transformation Treatment, we design a custom treatment plan that addresses your specific needs, challenges, goals and interests. Your custom-tailored treatment plan will provide a roadmap to your sobriety. It will evolve with you as your needs change.
While your roadmap is unique, the process you go through during treatment includes standard steps: detox, repair, tools and growth. These steps are a natural progression from detox to life outside of rehab. At Transformation Treatment, we employ different treatment modalities along the way so you can go through these steps to experience deep healing — and achieve a strong sobriety that will carry you through life.
During detox, you rid your body of the chemicals that are wreaking havoc on your mind, body and soul. This step strengthens you so you can move on to the next phase from a place of strength. During repair, you will heal the damage your addiction caused. Different treatment modalities provide different ways to heal. During the tool phase, you develop strategies for managing life stresses and protecting your sobriety. Finally, in the growth stage, you design a plan you can follow once you leave rehab. This four-step process is essential to maintaining and achieving lifelong sobriety.
When you stop drinking, your body goes through withdrawal. The symptoms you experience during withdrawal will vary based on many different factors. How much you drink, how often you drink, how long you have been drinking, your physical shape and age all affect how your body will respond to detox.
Symptoms vary from minor discomfort, such as headaches and nausea, to life-threating complications — including hallucinations, seizures and heart failure. When you stop drinking without professional detox help, you put yourself at risk for serious health complications that could lead to death. That’s why you should never try quitting alone without the professional supervision you need to wean yourself safely from alcohol.
When you have professional detox specialists at your side as you go through detox, your withdrawal is not only safe, but it can also be more comfortable. At Transformation Treatment our empathetic detox specialists will support you with nutritious meals that restore your body, medication that can lessen physical withdrawal symptoms, and the guidance you need to see your detox through to the end. While your detox may be uncomfortable at times, we can ensure you have the support you need to ease any pain you may experience.
Many people who try to detox alone often succumb to reusing simply to get relief from the symptoms. Without professional support, it’s easier to give up than to finish detoxing. When you have our empathetic detox professionals at your side, however, you can face the challenges detox may bring and come out stronger on the other side. You’ll be healthier and in the ideal place to begin treatment. With a clear head, you can begin the true work of healing.
During the repair phase, you focus on healing your entire self: mind, body and spirit. The first step is to review where you are and where you want to be. During this step, we’ll take the time to discuss the challenges you have been facing. We’ll work to uncover any underlying mental and behavioral health issues that may be present. This is called a dual diagnosis.
If you have a dual diagnosis — for example, clinical depression alongside your addiction — we can structure your treatment plan to address both conditions. Often, people do not suffer from addiction alone; a mental or behavioral health issue is present.
When you’re struggling with depression or anxiety, for example, you may use alcohol to dampen your bad feelings. This relief is only temporary. As your body builds a tolerance, you require more alcohol to mask your depression or anxiety. Without realizing it, you develop an addiction.
Other times, an addiction causes mental or behavioral health issues. When you’re not taking care of yourself, you are susceptible to issues such as depression and anxiety. Only after gaining a full understanding of your current state can we design the right action plan for you.
