Addictions are destroying families all around the United States as well as here in Illinois, creating financial burdens, and ending lives on a daily basis.  The war on drugs initiated by our government is, in essence, chasing a run-away train because for every addict that recovers, hundreds more addicts take their place.  Newer, more powerful drugs are introduced regularly, making it more difficult to provide effective treatment before it’s too late.  Our youth are experimenting with drugs and alcohol at much earlier ages than in the past. Many of our elderly have become addicted to prescription medications. Addiction is an escalating battle that eventually leaves the addict on the losing end of the fight, unless he or she takes advantage of the benefits of professional drug rehabilitation.

Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers

The term “rehab” is often heard in society today, but does the average person really understand the scope of what this term encompasses? Most people envision rehab as a place for homeless drug addicts or alcoholics, and they have no real understanding of what goes on behind those doors. The truth is, people from all walks of life have benefited from the services of these facilities because addiction can strike anyone regardless of social standing, financial status, age, gender, or race. Of course, not all rehab centers are alike in their philosophies and their approach to treatment, and this creates a certain level of confusion regarding the effectiveness of rehab centers. However, regardless of the substance involved, or the seriousness of the addiction, there is a program available that can address the specific needs of each person and the confusion can be cleared up by talking with counselors at the facility being considered.

An informed decision can be made when choosing a rehab by asking specific questions regarding the type of program, length of stay, financial arrangements, licensing and credentials, success rates, philosophies, location, insurance requirements, etc. It is important to note that the most effective rehab is one that offers a long-term, inpatient programs. Where each client has the opportunity to take an active role in creating their path to recovery with options such as faith-based, traditional, holistic, and others. Offering them a wide range or electives such as music and art therapy, fitness and exercise, acupuncture, martial arts, nutritional guidance, and many more.

Rehabilitation is defined as: ‘to restore to former capacity’. Most programs are carefully designed to provide clients with the skills and tools they need in order to reclaim their former place in their family and in the community. With renewed self-esteem, improved physical health, and a higher level of ethics and confidence, our clients go back into society with a sense of empowerment to make better choices this time around.

Statistics Reveal a Grim Reality

In America each year, over 22.2 million persons aged 12 or older were classified with substance dependence or abuse in 2012, which is approximately 8.5 percent of the population aged 12 or older.

Each day, new initiates into drug experimentation will certainly cause the addiction totals to increase.  The following comparison compiled in 2012 by SAMHSA clearly reveals the extent of drug experimentation by those aged 12 or older:

  • 2.4 million used marijuana for the first time
  • 1.9 million used pain relievers for non-medical reasons
  • 1.4 million used tranquilizers for non-medical reasons
  • 0.9 million tried Ecstasy for the first time
  • 0.6 million tried stimulants, cocaine, or inhalants

Of these millions, some will go on to try more powerful substances, while others will continue using the above and eventually become dependent or addicted.  Considering these numbers, it isn’t difficult to imagine that our society will not thrive as it should without the contributions of these young people.  How many of them will end up diseased, defeated, and homeless rather than becoming the contributing members of society we were depending on?  How many of them will die needlessly, alone and afraid?

The CDC reports that in 2010:

  • 38,329 people died from drug overdose nationwide
  • in 60% of those deaths, prescription drugs were the culprit
  • in 30% of drug overdose deaths, anti-anxiety drugs were the common cause
  • 17% of the medicine-related deaths were suicides
  • drug overdose deaths surpassed deaths from vehicle accidents
  • pharmaceuticals accounted for about 40% of all exposures reported to poison centers

Other effects of drug related illness and death are evident in the costs incurred for addiction treatment and costs imposed on state and federal agencies for additional law-enforcement due to drug-related crime.

Clearly, it is more cost effective to find drug rehabilitation programs for addicts rather than throw them in prison where they don’t receive the training and skills that would help them return to being functional in society and avoid relapse.

What are the Fundamentals of Effective Addiction Treatment?

It is important for addicts to understand that addiction treatment is not an overnight cure.  The entire recovery process is carefully planned and administered to achieve different levels of healing and this takes time and determination.  Throughout the duration of the addiction, the person suffered diminished physical health, unstable emotional states, problems in relationships, and many other physical and emotional effects. Each of these areas must be addressed during treatment to ensure that the individual is able to function in normal daily routines without the need for addictive substances to get them through difficult times.

The basic fundamentals of treatment include detoxing the body, repairing emotional damage, restoring self-esteem, and strengthening spirituality. These goals are accomplished by providing a program that is designed to meet the individual needs of each client.  It is also important that the recovering addict has the opportunity to choose a path to recovery that they feel comfortable with.

Phases of Treatment for Specific Results

In order to provide lasting recovery for our clients, we have developed a program that seeks to approach the body, mind, and spirit of each client on an individual basis.  Each phase of the program is designed to help clients attain specific goals to aid in relapse prevention when they exit the program:

Clients undergo detoxification to cleanse the body of any toxins deposited by the substance of abuse.  Over the course of the addiction, the person’s physical health has become compromised as a result of chemicals in the drugs, poor nutrition, lack of exercise, and sleep deprivation.  We provide a regimen of regular exercise, nutritional support with proper diet, vitamin therapy and a variety of other methods to restore physical strength and eliminate cravings.

Incorporates training and activities that help the client develop a more positive self-image and gain a higher level of moral reasoning.  With these skills, clients are able to avoid falling back into old behaviors or patterns of belief that fed into the addiction.  Such problems as depression, poor coping techniques and low self-esteem can be overcome, giving clients a sense of empowerment.  When clients learn to communicate more effectively, confront their problems head-on and control risky situations, they can maintain a fulfilling, drug-free lifestyle.

Seeks to help clients reconnect with their inner self by finding their own path to spiritual freedom.  We offer tracks for faith-based treatment including Christianity, Catholicism, Buddhism, Judaism, Muslim faiths or Indigenous paths.  For clients that prefer a non-religious program, we offer a Holistic approach to therapy that includes Martial Arts to help clients acquire a greater sense of self-control and inner strength.

No two programs are the same, and a little research will show that not many of them offer clients the level of education and training available at our facility.  By helping clients develop a sense of moral values, ethics, and integrity and showing them how to apply these in real life situations, we are certain they can finally take part in living their life rather than simply wasting it away in a fog of drug induced indifference.

Why Our Programs Get Lasting Results

We offer a variety of activities and classes, allowing clients the opportunity to create a program they feel comfortable with.  By incorporating the perfect balance of education, support, guidance and compassion, our program has succeeded in providing effective, lasting results for thousands of clients.

Much of our success is due to the fact that our program is not bound by time limits as many other programs that limit clients to 30-60-90 day programs.  Our clients are allowed to take the time they need to heal and gain the confidence necessary to function in the real world.  We also offer a one-year aftercare program to follow-up with clients and provide continued support as they attempt to reclaim their place in a society that can be unforgiving at times.

One of the most common misconceptions about addiction treatment is that once the body is detoxed, the person is cured, but this is not the case at all.  Addiction is composed of a variety of emotional, physical, environmental and spiritual factors that contributed to the person’s desire to seek solace in drugs or alcohol.  Our team is experienced in providing the highest level of care needed to address each aspect of addiction and recovery.  Call now to learn more.
