Our Gender Specific Residential Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program - Designed for the Individual
The Treatment Process
Upon admission, patients may need medically supervised detox to safely rid the body of alcohol and various substances. Following an assessment, our clinical and medical staff develop a treatment plan. During the first week, a thorough medical exam is completed to determine any other medical issues or symptoms. Since a large part of addiction is tied to despair, anger, feelings of abandonment and a loss of hope, we assess the patient's existing psychological, psychiatric and spiritual aspects. Patients are also assigned to a personal counselor. Patients receive regular individual counseling as well as sessions with specialized clinicians who help pave the way for more intensive therapy. As patients progress through treatment and the individual plan is updated, more in-depth lectures and focused group therapy are added, including:
- Working the 12-Steps in all aspects of life
- Identifying and responding to triggers
- High-risk situations that can lead to relapse
- Managing emotions, behaviors, and connecting or reconnecting to spirituality
Other Underlying Disorders
People struggling with drug or alcohol addiction frequently have other mental and emotional issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar or personality disorders. To that end, we treat addiction and mental health disorders from an integrated approach. Our residential program is structured to provide a comprehensive set of assessment, treatment and recovery services for both addiction and mental health issues when they do occur together.
Getting Ready for Life After Treatment
Following treatment, stresses and temptations can seem overwhelming. Often it seems like an almost irresistible pull right back into addictive behavior. With our personalized residential drug and alcohol treatment programs, one of our primary goals is to help our patients learn the skills of living a full and satisfying life outside the realm of addictive substances. This attention to relapse prevention provides critical guidance with an emphasis on cross addiction. Ultimately, we help our patients learn balance in all aspects of life utilizing the 12-Steps so that they are able to:
- Have loving and healthy relationships
- Balance work with their personal life
- Have sober leisure activities
The Women's Program
We know that key concerns for women in early recovery include relationships, self-care, and developing a safe community of support for networking and recovery. Women have individual needs, and their work in treatment at Pavillon reflects that specialization. We use experiential therapy, family sculpting, yoga and Tai Chi, exercise and weekly outings to help women. The work on women's issues centers around topics such as empowerment, boundaries, trauma, codependency and relationship issues, shame, and grief. Natural and healthy coping skills are emphasized - skills that can also be used universally with or without others. The Women's Program at Pavillon addresses each woman with mind, body and spirit in focus - treating the whole person and helping each woman onto the road to healing, recovery and transformation into or back to a life of fullness.
