What to Expect
Like any other life-threatening disease, addiction requires serious and immediate treatment. Even if you were able to stop drinking or using for a short time, maintaining sobriety long-term is more complex. By treating the science behind addiction and the emotions that fuel it, you can get your life back. It starts with a simple phone call.
Addiction is emotionally draining. You deserve to talk to someone who understands and can answer all of your questions.
Taking the first step might feel nerve-racking, but it’s just a phone call. Whether you’re the family member or struggling yourself — not taking action is so much more stressful.
Ridding the body of drugs and alcohol is often the most uncomfortable part of treatment, but think of the alternative. You pump more and more drugs into your system on a daily basis until your body starts to shut down. It’s the opportunity for true happiness, real relationships and a promising future that make any unpleasantness worth it.
The entire time, your vitals and well-being are monitored by a combination of medical professionals to avoid complications and look out for your best interest. In the end, you’ll feel better than ever, finally free of physical dependency.
In your first few days, a schedule is created based on what’s most beneficial for you. Everyone gets intense therapy daily (including advanced options like neurofeedback therapy), but some need trauma therapies (like EMDR), while others benefit more from marriage counseling or art therapy.
Between the emotional sessions and medical evaluations, you have time to relax with activities like massage, yoga or exercise.
Other underlying mental health issues — from social anxiety to bipolar — are also addressed under 24-hour supervision.
Residential treatment builds a healing foundation for a lifetime of sobriety. (It’s not an optional step).
3 months – ongoing
If you’ve been to treatment before, this is likely the part that tripped you up. We help you get a realistic plan for continuing therapy and surrounding yourself with support after you leave the 24/7 safety of the residential treatment.
From daily outpatient therapy at one of our facilities to sober housing, outpatient treatment is how you stay sober in the “real world.”
Family & Alumni Support
Families often carry the weight of their loved one’s addiction for years in the form of resentment and worry. To help heal and navigate, our Wellness Counselors are available to families forever via call, email, text and e-therapy.
Since addiction is a lifelong battle, alumni also have someone on their side 24/7. Whether you need advice, a ride to a meeting or somewhere to go for sober fun, you have a friend to help you fight to stay sober.
The Truth In Numbers
Over 700,000 Americans seek treatment every day
Addiction is the #1 cause of death for people under 50
Permanent recovery is 5X more likely with residential treatment
What's holding you back?
Sadly, addiction is an overwhelming disease. Devastating criminal consequences and even death are both real possibilities without treatment. The sooner the disease is addressed, the less destruction it can cause.
Because addiction escalates over months or years, there is not a quick-fix cure. It takes time and commitment. But, everything starts with a simple phone call. From there, just keep moving one step at a time. Things will get easier.
Feelings of doubt and helplessness are part of addiction, but there’s always hope! We see people turn their lives around every single day.
Our treatment is backed by research in the science of addiction and led by a compassionate team of specialty-leading professionals. It’s not a miracle cure, but it is your best shot at regaining meaning and peace in your life.
The fact is — thousands of people across the country are now living sober, productive lives after their time here. You deserve the same chance.
Most people are initially resistant to treatment. Denial is part of the disease. If you’re loved one says they “don’t need treatment” or “treatment won’t work,” it’s their addiction talking.
We have an entire family team you can talk to any time for free — including an ARISE-certified interventionist. When you call the number on our website, you’ll get transferred to the Family Wellness team for advice on how to use your leverage to encourage your loved one to do the right thing. We also offer a free online course on addiction, where you can get feedback from other families too — visit HopeTracker.org.
Even if you’re feeling powerless, know that you always have choices!
It’s normal to have tons of questions, especially regarding insurance and costs. Both our helpline and chat are available 24/7 for answers.
Most people use insurance. We’ll sort through your policy’s out-of-pocket maximums, co-pays and deductibles to get you a straight answer on cost and work with your income for a payment plan or even complete financial hardship. Your costs range from absolutely zero to a few thousand dollars.
If you don’t have private insurance or you have other legal or medical situations that make another facility a better fit, we’re still committed to helping you find quality treatment!
Get support from someone who has been there themselves and is looking out for your best interest. You’re don’t have to navigate alone!
