The first step of addiction treatment is detox. Detox is vital to long-term recovery as it helps clients overcome the initial uneasiness that comes with early sobriety. During detox, clients are medically monitored as they go through the stages of withdrawal to ensure their vitals are safe and the withdrawal symptoms don’t become life-threatening.
After detox, clients will focus on learning about addiction and working to rewire the way their brain thinks of substances during inpatient rehab. While at a treatment center, like our San Jose drug rehab, clients will be exposed to numerous forms of individual and group counseling sessions, some of the most effective types of counseling include cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy.
Inpatient treatment normally lasts around 30 days after which clients will be discharged and work there way down the final levels of care including:
During these levels of care, clients will continue to learn about their substance abuse and develop methods to fight back against addiction and learn preventative measures they can implement to help them avoid relapse and commit to long-term sobriety.
It is also important to note that following inpatient treatment, clients at Reflections will have access to our sober living homes while they continue to go through the treatment process. Sober living homes are a solution to a problem that many newly sober people face: relapse.
While relapses can still occur while in sober living, being around other people with similar goals and staying in a structured environment will make avoiding relapse that much easier.
