Those who choose to get help for drug abuse or drug addiction from a treatment center that offers particularly high quality, individualized, evidence-based treatment, are more likely to recover than those who attempt to recover on their own. Have you ever tried to implement a new exercise regimen? Wouldn’t you be more likely to succeed at making that change if you had a team of caring and skilled experts to support and guide you than if you did it on your own? Treatment is no different. If you can find a drug rehab facility that boasts a team of industry leading professionals, your chances of recovery soar.
Why is drug rehab so important?
Addiction recovery is a major undertaking. It requires a complete life change. If addicts could change on their own, they would. No one wants to throw their life away or live the sad and lonely life of an addict. No one wants to hurt and disappoint their family and friends the way addicts do. But without professional help, few addicts are able to recover.
In treatment, addicts are given the safety, security, and support they need to change. First, in detox, the addict is safely separated from his drug of choice by industry-leading professionals. This process should never be done alone or without the help of a medical professional. With the right help, detox can be made comfortable and the side-effects and symptoms of withdrawal managed. Next, with the help of a dedicated psychotherapist and other caring professionals, the addict is provided the resources necessary to face the underlying causes of his/her addiction and learn the skills required to recover. The need to use simply fades away. As the addict’s life becomes filled with new purpose and loving relationships, the desire to use diminishes. Recovery is built with support and community.
What makes drug rehabilitation programs successful?
Holistic Interventions: Successful treatment programs will treat you as a whole person, not a disease or set of symptoms. At Cliffside Malibu, we take a mind-body-spirit approach to treatment, helping you become the person you want to be and live the life you have always dreamed of. Our therapies are wide-ranging, providing you with a choice of resources that will be right for you.
Intensive, Individualized, One-on-One Psychotherapy: Our treatment program is based on helping you to understand why it is you became an addict in the first place. What is the pain that you’ve suffered that needs to be dealt with and moved past? In order to find and overcome this root cause of your addiction, we provide each client with a personal psychotherapist, who will meet with you almost daily and oversee every aspect of your addiction treatment. As trust is built, you will work with your therapist to identify the types of support you need, both in treatment and beyond. Together, you will forge the foundation of your recovery.
Evidence-Based Treatment: Many treatment centers have ideas about what might help addicts recover. At Cliffside Malibu, we only offer therapies that have a track record of success. We routinely have our addiction researcher read and evaluate the latest trends in addiction recovery and the scientific articles on any new treatment that might help addicts – from how hyperbaric chambers are being used to support brain function to inroads being made in the field of neuroplasticity to new data on how meditation helps foster recovery. We don’t use our clients as guinea pigs for new ideas. Instead, we offer what has been proven to work with others worldwide.
Meeting You at Your Level of Readiness to Change: In the past, people have argued that an addict needs to “hit bottom” in order to change. This is untrue. We employ a treatment model called The Stages of Change. It was developed in the 1990s by some of the nation’s leading researchers. This model has helped us to understand how change occurs and to meet people at their level of willingness to change. Combined with highly individualized psychotherapy and holistic, evidence-based treatments offered specifically to meet your needs and preferences, we’ve found a synergistic effect – and a program so effective, we can guarantee success.
