How We Treat alcohol Dependency
Alcohol dependency affects millions of people worldwide. Our goal here at Tranquility Woods is to help alleviate the physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms during the initial phases of alcohol detoxification. We do not consider alcohol or substance abuse to be a moral failing, but rather a set of conditions that, with proper treatment, lasting recovery can be achieved.
Our process starts with an initial medical and psychological evaluation. This is an attempt to understand and treat any withdrawal effects the client may be experiencing. Our team then prescribed medications to help minimize the withdrawal symptoms.
Our average alcohol detox protocols range from 5 to 10 days. Part of our 28+ day alcohol rehab program.
Of course, every client has a unique medical detox protocol that works best for them, so the ultimate length of this detoxification will vary. We use a combination of medications that help treat the discomfort associated with alcohol detoxification. We can prescribe medications to help with trouble sleeping, shakiness, blood pressure, nausea, and more.
The first few days in our care help the client feel as comfortable as possible in a safe and 24-hour staffed environment.
Alcohol Addiction Treatment Methods
Once the initial phases of alcohol detoxification are completed, addressing the psychological component is our next phase of recovery. We will start to dive into cognitive behavioral therapy and mental health therapy multiple hours every week in private sessions. On average we guarantee four to five individual counseling sessions weekly, in addition to our robust group therapy.
Individual therapy sessions are one of our core components in developing a customized treatment plan. Topics have included treating depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, Stress management, family, relationships, and more.
We find that in order to truly start recovering from the patterns of alcohol consumption, the underlying causes and conditions must be addressed. Our program options range from 28-90 days in our residential addiction treatment program.
