What is “integrated treatment”?

An integrated treatment model allows professionals to address substance abuse and mental health issues simultaneously. A staggeringly high percentage of those dealing with addiction issues also struggle with a co-occurring mental health issues like depression, trauma, anxiety or bipolar disorder. Research and practice have proven that people are much more likely to achieve and maintain a high quality of life if these issues are treated at the same time.

Why do people travel for treatment when there are options close to home?

There are many reasons why it makes sense to choose a program far from home. Pursuing treatment in another geographical area provides a physical “fresh start” as well as a mental one. A new place far from home also limits distractions. You won’t run into “friends” who are also seeking treatment and family and loved ones can be involved in the process in a safe, regimented way. In a new location, there are no memories of past substance abuse. There’s the freedom to truly focus on you and your recovery.

What is detox and will I need it?

During the admissions process, it will be determined if a patient needs to begin their time in treatment with a detox period to allow the body to do some initial healing before fully delving into the residential treatment process. This stabilization period is undertaken with medical supervision, and medication is administered as needed and tapered off where appropriate. Using detox where needed ensures each patient begins treatment with the ability to fully engage in the program.

What is holistic care?

Addiction doesn’t just impact the body physically. It’s a whole person disease, which means the whole body needs to be treated, providing mind, body and spiritual healing. Integrative treatment blends a variety of methods to create a comprehensive program that addresses the whole individual, resulting in lasting recovery.

What is the family’s role in the treatment process?

People don’t fall into abuse or dependency in a vacuum. Often, there are relational and emotional dynamics within a family that have supported the individual’s abuse or dependence on substances. That’s why having the family take part of the treatment program is essential to ensuring the highest rate of success. Our Family Program includes family sessions and Family Weekends to give loved ones the tools to better support each other during and after the process.

How do I know if I need treatment?

If you think there’s a problem, it’s worth getting a professional opinion. A free assessment done by a trained admissions coordinator can provide an unbiased take. Your first assessment can be done over the phone by calling us at 269-280-4673.

What’s the difference between residential and outpatient treatment?

Residential treatment means that a person receiving treatment will reside at a treatment facility until he or she finishes the program. It also means that this person will be out of his or her regular environment for an extended period, allowing sobriety to be the sole focus. Residential treatment provides dedicated time for professionals to address the physical aspects of addiction as well as the root causes of an individual’s substance or alcohol abuse. But sometimes professional or family obligations make it harder to leave daily life behind for treatment. In these cases, an outpatient program can provide flexible treatment options and support. Outpatient treatment contains many of the same elements as a residential program, but there is less programming per day (outpatient often consists of half-day sessions), with participants returning home or to sober living accommodations each night throughout the process.

What is an assessment?

Our admissions coordinators are trained to ask the right questions to get to the root of the issue and begin creating a personal profile. This confidential information allows them to make recommendations about treatment options, costs, insurance coverage, travel arrangements and more.
