Symptoms of physical withdrawal often include, but are not limited to, the following:For example, in severe cases of alcohol use disorder, withdrawal symptoms may begin within eight hours after the last drink. This means that many people with advanced-stage alcohol use disorder wake up in the morning with a strong physical craving to have more alcohol. Sometimes, however, alcohol withdrawal symptoms do not appear for a few days. When alcohol is not available to the system, these symptoms can persist off and on for weeks.1 The Importance of Healthy Detoxification Detoxification is a process in which withdrawal symptoms are handled in a controlled and safe manner. In detox, the addicted or physically dependent person is safely distanced from the substance. Although withdrawal symptoms may feel quite intense, individuals can find great relief if they go through the detoxification process with medical supervision and assistance. Some drugs are dangerous to quit alone. In some instances, sudden cessation of drug use may immediately result in a shock to the body that can actually send an individual to the emergency room. Anyone with an addiction or physical dependency is encouraged to see a doctor who can give suggestions about coming off the substance in a balanced and controlled way. drug or alcohol detox, co-occurring treatment, step-down programs, sober living and aftercare.

The cornerstones of treatment are residential programs and intensive outpatient treatment. Both serve a specific purpose, and finding the right fit can be key to long-term success.When it comes to addiction, residential treatment remains the most successful treatment method and is preferred in most cases. Getting someone out of his or her environment for an extended period to focus solely on sobriety is ideal. Residential treatment is a more intensive program that allows for the maximum amount of time to address not just the physical aspects of addiction, but also to get to the root causes of an individual’s substance or alcohol abuse. Residential programs also offer more comprehensive monitoring when it comes to medication and medical issues.

More than 18 percent of the total US population struggles with a mental illness, according to data from 2012 produced by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. But what do mental health issues have to do with drug or alcohol treatment? A very high percentage of those seeking treatment for addiction are found to be suffering from a mental health disorder as well. Depression, PTSD, bipolar, ADHD and trauma can all make someone more likely to battle addiction. Depression Anxiety Bipolar Disorder PTSD Trauma Borderline Personality Disorder Mood Disorder ADD/ADHD It’s not uncommon for someone to turn to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate, either because they are unaware they have a mental health issue, the problem has gone undiagnosed or they don’t like the medication prescribed for their condition and how it makes them feel. Unfortunately, these substances may quiet symptoms in the short term, but over time they only exacerbate the mental health issues, they never heal them. Then as the individual becomes addicted, they now have yet another problem to address. In the past, substance abuse and mental health issues were treated separately without any connection. Over time, it became clear that this outdated model was less than ideal. As we grow in our understanding of the connection between mental health and addiction, treatment professionals have developed a dual diagnosis approach to treat these co-occurring disorders simultaneously. Today, the experts acknowledge that treating these issues together is key, and integrated treatment is accepted as the best option for lasting long-term sobriety.

Mental health issues and addiction have been misunderstood for far too long. We’re making great strides at removing the stigma from both of these medical conditions, but its only by understanding these issues and treating them appropriately that we can see real change. Any number of programs can be successful in ending abusive or addictive behavior for a period of time. Only by addressing the underlying issues and getting to the root of the addiction – including looking at any contributing mental or emotional issues – can we provide the best opportunity for true and lasting recovery.

VERIFYING YOUR BENEFITSOur admissions team starts by gathering information to help determine if treatment is needed, and if so, what kind. Cost is usually a primary concern, so confirming your benefits for free is our first step. Insurance coverage for addiction treatment is a complex system, and changes are constantly being made to benefits programs. This is where our experience proves invaluable. We work with insurance providers to determine what is covered and help you calculate any out-of-pocket costs.
Some of the insurance providers we work with:
- Exclusive Care
- Priority Health
FINDING THE RIGHT FITWe work with everyone who calls to find them the help they need, even if it’s not through one of our programs. We don’t measure success in the number of slots filled; we measure it by the number of people helped. In that first call, we’re already building a detailed medical record for you. It’s all part of the process to provide the best information on programs, pricing and length of treatment to fit your specific needs. We can also help book travel, arrange airport pick-up and remain in regular contact until you walk through the door.
ARRIVING AT YOUR DESTINATIONEven with all that help, you may still be feeling unsure when you arrive at treatment. It’s perfectly natural to be a little nervous, but there’s nothing mysterious about the process. Everyone admitted to a treatment program starts out at admissions. It’s typical to meet with an intake specialist for an assessment to determine the complete range of issues you’re facing. While you may have sought treatment for an addiction to one substance, there may be other secondary substances that are contributing to the problem. There may also be underlying mental health issues – including trauma, anxiety and depression – that have gone undiagnosed or unrecognized. An honest account of what you’ve been using and how frequently can also help determine if detox is needed or what types of medication may be necessary to help you through the initial stages of withdrawal. This is all done without judgment or shaming. It’s simply information-gathering with a higher purpose. To reach out in a time of need can make someone feel extremely vulnerable, but the information you provide is completely confidential. When you turn to us for help, we believe that’s a sacred trust, and we are committed to doing all we can to assist you in finding the help you need and leading you to the path of recovery. Contact us today to find out how we can help you.
