Our treatment focuses on understanding the triggers, which for many are connected to emotional predicaments. The goal is to regain a healthy lifestyle, reinstate a feeling of well-being and learn to cope with daily tension.
The program is built around daily interactions between our staff and the client learning about themselves to ensure full recovery without relapse.

Types of Treatment Provided
When it comes to effectively vanquishing an addiction to drugs and alcohol, this is an effort that usually takes many different tools and approaches to accomplish it effectively. An addiction to drugs and alcohol is a multi-faceted problem, and it is something that must be addressed by targeting the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects concurrently.
At Awakenings, it is understood that a multi-modality approach to addiction treatment is essential, and effectively utilizing a method of addressing addiction that takes into account all of the factors of substance abuse and all of the different possible pitfalls and traps of addiction is necessary for helping people to beat this habit for life.
Below are some of the treatment methods used at Awakenings to ensure that our clients receive the highest level of care they deserve:
Detoxification is the first step at Awakenings. In this step, our clients will be able to experience:
- Full monitoring at all times to stabilize and address withdrawal symptoms.
- Education and briefing on drugs and alcohol, the effects they have on the body, and adverse results of both.
- Medical address of all withdrawal symptoms and manifestations to make detox as painless and comfortable an experience as possible for the client.
- Medication management to ensure that medicines that are needed are utilized.
- Around-the-clock care and support included with natural methods for withdrawal pain relief.
Residential approaches are critical to recovery at Awakenings. Through the residential services at the program, clients will receive:
- A full evaluation to determine the exact needs of the patient.
- Daily attendance in a wide variety of services and options ranging from group sessions.
- The use of cutting-edge treatment methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and SMART Recovery, but also combined with traditional treatment methods such as the Twelve Steps, AA, and NA.
- Utilizing many different recovery options and giving clients an opportunity to choose which is best for them.
The partial hospitalization at Awakenings does offer much of the same treatment as the residential and inpatient detox approaches. With partial hospitalization, clients can take part in treatment for five days a week, up to six hours a day, for a total of thirty hours spent in therapy every week. This approach is ideal for people who don’t need intensive treatment.
Intensive Outpatient Program
Much like the partial hospitalization approach, the intensive outpatient approach involves nine to twenty hours a week and is perfect for clients who desire to keep working or going to school while also getting the benefits that Awakenings offers.
Awakenings can offer many different kinds of recovery services and options to their clients, with the intention of making recovery available for everyone. For more information, contact us at Awakenings today.
Care and Monitoring Around the Clock
The first stage of drug rehab is the most difficult. The patient will struggle through intense withdrawal symptoms. The effects can be unpredictable, especially for someone who has been addicted for a long time. In an inpatient facility, the patient is cared for around the clock. If the patient experiences severe symptoms, the medical staff is on hand to offer care right away to prevent the patient from injuring himself. Family members can have peace of mind that their loved one will be in the best of care 24 hours a day.
The Benefits of Addiction Treatment at Awakenings
Focus on Healing Without Distraction
Daily life can bring challenges to anyone. However, for someone who is going through rehabilitation, these current daily demands can become unbearable. In an inpatient setting, the patient is not distracted by these external demands. The rehab environment allows the patient to direct all of his energy into conquering his addiction. Without distractions, results can be achieved much faster.
No Temptation From Substances
One disadvantage of outpatient treatment programs is that once the patient leaves each session, he is again exposed to real temptations. He knows where to obtain his substances, and he is relying on his willpower to resist. For people who are just starting out on their recovery journey, this temptation often proves too strong for them, and they end up with a relapse. In an inpatient program, this temptation is removed. The risk of a relapse is negated because there is no way for the patient to obtain substances while he is still being treated.
Going through rehab can be a lonely experience for the individual if he feels that no one understands his struggles. In an inpatient program, the patient is provided with opportunities to support each other in a therapeutic community. This personal experience is particularly valuable as each patient relearns skills to socialize and be productive without drugs. This support helps the person gain confidence as his coping skills strengthen.
Awakenings offers a variety of programs that are individualized for each patient. The duration of the program will vary. The sooner treatment is sought, the sooner the individual can break out from the bondage of drug abuse and get on the road to recovery.
