Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program

Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program

Steps Recovery Center recognizes how vital the mind, body, and spirit are in their connection to the whole person. We take a holistic approach to treating alcohol addiction that includes treating the whole person, and find that it tends to be more successful, especially since addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life. With a customized and individualized program, a holistic approach just makes sense. It affords an opportunity to meet the patient’s physical and psychological needs and allows them to engage physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Take That First Step

Information on Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol is a controlled substance that comes with a broad range of side effects, from slurred speech to a loss of coordination. Not every person who drinks will develop an addiction, but anyone whose life is negatively impacted by this substance may have an alcohol use disorder.

Because alcohol consumption is socially acceptable, it can be difficult to tell the difference between casual drinking and abuse. A few negative consequences of alcohol use include:
  • Physical harm or illness
  • Problems at work
  • Financial instability
  • Deteriorating relationships

When usage becomes frequent, it can escalate into an addiction.

Alcohol addiction, also known as alcoholism, is when a person is unable to stop drinking, even when it causes severe personal and social harm. Signs of alcohol addiction include:

  • Drinking everyday
  • Wanting to stop drinking but being unable to
  • Developing a high tolerance for alcohol
  • Feeling symptoms of withdrawal after going a few hours without drinking
  • Neglecting personal and professional responsibilities
  • Spending hours each day trying to get a hold of alcohol

Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Alcohol addiction is treatable, and one of the best steps a person can take is joining a treatment program. The two types of detox programs are outpatient and inpatient.
Outpatient: This program involves daily treatment, such as counseling, therapy, or group sessions at a clinic or treatment center. Those who choose outpatient treatment can continue to live at home as they recover, allowing them to be with family. They can also maintain a job or keep going to school.

Inpatient:Inpatient treatment, also known as residential rehab, is when a person lives in the treatment center for the duration of their program. This treatment is best for people with severe alcohol or drug addiction who have other mental health conditions. A person who lives at the treatment center will be away from temptation and their triggers. Living in a comfortable environment can support their recovery.

Both programs are beneficial and can help a person recover from their addiction. Here’s what a person staying at an inpatient treatment center can expect:

Detoxification: Some inpatient treatment programs offer an in-house detoxification program. Others require a patient to complete detox before entering their facility. A patient may first have to go to a facility that specializes in dealing with drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms for five days.

No locks: Some people avoid checking themselves into an inpatient treatment center because they fear they will lose their freedom; however, a patient will remain mobile. Generally, treatment centers encourage residents to exercise and go on walks. There are no locked doors at treatment centers because a program can’t force a resident to stay against their will. No treatment program is going to work unless a person is willing to change their life.

Education: Education is at the heart of all treatment programs. The process is geared at getting a patient to reflect on their habits as honestly as possible. The end goal is for a patient to change their attitude about drug and alcohol use.

If alcohol addiction interferes with a person’s daily routine, they can reach out to an inpatient treatment center that specializes in personal care and provides patients with the tools they need to reclaim their life.

Steps Recovery is the place you go if you want a caring and understanding program. They have helped me gain knowledge about myself and what I want/need to do. The staff there can relate and help you through core issues and they push you to do better because being in this program you know you can do big and amazing things. Also the therapists there are awesome and walk with you through struggles of life and give you the tools you truly need. Overall this place is an amazing opportunity and you’d be missing out on a lot if you chose to not at least try this program.

The staff and facility is amazing- Couldn’t ask for anything better. The program is well rounded with rec activities, equine therapy, gender therapy, group therapy, individual and couples therapy, and also attends various 12 Step support groups such as AA or NA. They also have family therapy and processing with options for individual settings or in a group. These help families understand what their loved ones who suffer from addiction is going through and how to support them, and also gives them their own support system.

This place saved my life! The therapists were very helpful, friendly and really cared about the clients wellbeing. The tech’s were alway helpful with meds and anything that was needed. House manager was amazing, had high expectations on job duties, and kept a very clean organized atmosphere. Food was always amazing. I never went hungry! The information and skills that I have learned and applied to my life are priceless. If you’re not willing to put forth the work to change your life this is not your place, but if you are this is the first Step to take. I Love everyone at Steps. Thank you for all your help

I’d been to other recovery centers before but this one was the best, it stuck because I was willing to do the work, and with the help I received from staff I am now celebrating a year of sobriety in a couple of days. Update; I’m now 18 months sober as of yesterday and I still keep in touch with my steps family. The lessons I learned at steps will stick with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for giving me my life back.
