Family Welcome Packet Treatment
Providing Your Loved Ones With A Safe Environment For Recovery
While rehab is an essential step for addiction recovery, the most important step is realizing there is an addiction problem to begin with, and that it is best cared for by clinical professionals. Addiction is serious, and can prey on a person’s entire life. Relationships can change and finances can be drastically affected. Worse, it can place a person’s life in danger.
Addicts have gotten used to living life through their sedatives and stimulants. When those are taken away in detox, life can be just as temporarily challenging as when they were actively using. Often, family relationships are the most vulnerable. Addicted individuals, especially those with a history, may have strained family and other social relationships up to or past the limit.
At Sprout Health California Detox, we know that families are concerned over their loved one’s health and welfare. This is why we try to eliminate as much stress and concern over the addicted person’s treatment as possible. Our detailed welcome packet is created especially for families who want to stay on top of their loved one’s condition. As such, we both clients and their family think will be pleased with our state-of-the art programs and treatment protocols.
Your packet contains valuable in information about our programs. It will also outline the entire treatment process from admission to being discharged. It is a lengthy package and includes the following information:
- The intake and admission process
- An overview of our treatment program
- Details about our facility and sober living
- An explanation of each phase of treatment
- Family involvement and the family program
- Other pertinent resources
It is always best to keep your family packet where it can be easily found. Family support is extremely critical for the recovering addict. When patients return home from treatment, it helps to have a solid network of people who can offer caring support. Such a network is often the recovering individual’s first line of defense against going into relapse. Using again after having quit can be especially dangerous. A person’s body, now detoxed, may not be able to handle the large doses of drugs the body will have been cleansed of.
A family support package, along with counseling, can also help family members to be on the lookout for co-dependent behavior on their end. We have found family counseling to be extremely helpful in this manner.
Inpatient treatment is comprehensive, and centers around detox and other therapies. While detox removes harmful chemicals from the body, cognitive therapies work to help a person to understand their own thinking patterns, and how they can better process information. They are taught to understand that thinking created behaviors. If thought can be processed differently, behavioral outcomes can be different. The patient receives 24/7 treatment and support throughout the detox and rehab process Their treatments can be changed along the way to adjust to how well they are doing.
Outpatient treatment offers comprehensive medical and therapy support as well. The only this is the treatment is not as intense, though it is still completely effective. Patients are still required to check in daily to make sure their program is on track.
We also provide great follow-up once a patient completes their program. We recommend staying involved in groups such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. In these groups, recovering individuals can share and learn from others who have kicked the habit and remained sober. There truly is strength in numbers. These groups can also support individuals who might experience an occasional fall. The goal is to get back in the saddle and to keep working toward complete sobriety.
As a family member, your loved one has experienced something that no one should have to experience: being an addict. It happens, and it happens to people of all races, professions, and gender. It happens to the young and old. The key to recovery is to first admit there is a problem that needs fixing. Then, enroll, or have your loved one enroll, in a program that gets them the help they need. Once the recovering addict is well on their way to recover, the family can heal as well. The unfortunately thing about addiction is that family members, often devastated and put off by the addiction, are the people most needed to help the individual recover at such a critical stage.
If you or a loved one needs help, do not put if off. The sooner you start detox and rehab the sooner you can get back to living a life that is drug and alcohol free.
