For individuals struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab program gives them the best chance at long-term recovery. Many inpatient treatment centers, such as The Treehouse, offer a dual diagnosis program. This allows individuals to heal both physically and mentally, as many people suffering from an addiction also deal with other mental health problems.
Deciding to go into an inpatient rehab center is a big step. The best way to decide on what facility to go to is to understand the rehabilitation process.
An addiction can run rampant through your life, destroying what you hold precious and the things you’ve fought so hard for. Whether it be your career, education, relationships or family, the damage can be difficult to bear. With this reality comes deep-seated negativity which manifests as many of the maladaptive behaviors which fuel drug abuse.
Beyond this, we consider the drug itself. How long have you used for? How frequently do you use? Do you suffer from any other issues, such as a medical condition or mental health disorder?
The complexity of these elements in sum requires a comprehensive and in-depth approach which is not readily offered in an outpatient program. Treatment takes time and cannot be rushed. Our inpatient residential format gives you the time and space you need to develop a solid foundation for a drug-free life.
Inpatient treatment grants you far more opportunities to immerse yourself in modalities which build a drug-free and balanced life. An inpatient setting offers consistent structure and 24/7 support for residents, all within a program tailored for your needs.
While addiction can affect anyone, the way that it arises in each person’s life widely varies. A combination of risk factors contribute to the addicted state and subsequently inform our treatment methods.
The toll of prolonged alcohol or drug abuse is far reaching. As a person’s body and mind decline under the weight of the substance, other facets of their life begin to fall apart as well. This tragic state further enforces their drug use as they attempt to numb the negative feelings associated with such deep loss.
A good treatment program recognizes these elements and holistically works to treat the addiction on all levels:
At The Treehouse we offer this integrated approach. Our expert staff will help you to create a treatment plan that matches the diversity of your needs, background and sobriety goals.
Within an addicted state, drug-induced chemical changes have become so extreme that your body’s physiology cannot function normally without the substance. This means you have become dependent on the drug. In order to become sober you need to break this chemical dependency.
Certain drugs, like alcohol, benzodiazepines and opioids, impact your chemistry more heavily than others. This leads to a more intense physical addiction. Because of this, these drugs can create severe withdrawals should you abruptly discontinue use. Withdrawal from alcohol and opioids can even be deadly. For these reasons, these drugs frequently require a medical detox.
To protect your health, life and enhance your chances of sobriety, we strongly recommend you never withdrawal on your own and instead choose a medical detox. A medical detox addresses the physical addiction and supports you while your body cleanses itself of the drug’s damaging toxins.
These programs blend a combination of medications, nutritive support and compassion to aid you through this trying time. Without this program, withdrawal symptoms and severe cravings may tempt you to relapse. Under our 24/7 care, our highly-trained medical staff will do everything in our power to ensure you transition as comfortably and safely through this time as possible.
Medications used to treat addiction, or pharmacotherapies, work by normalizing your brain chemistry and balancing your physical states. During detox they play another crucial role by reducing cravings and other intolerable symptoms of withdrawal, such as anxiety, insomnia and pain.
Alcohol withdrawals can become quite severe, leading to seizure and delirium tremens (DT’s). For some, these states may become so extreme as to jeopardize your life. A medical detox for alcohol works to reduce and minimize the uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal. We will constantly monitor your physical and mental states and administer the necessary medications and adjunct treatments as needed.
Like alcohol, benzodiazepine withdrawal can cause seizures and DT’s. In its most extreme form, if not treated properly, it can also lead to fatality. To prevent this from happening, and to treat other, less severe but uncomfortable symptoms, we will use medications and other supportive treatments.
Withdrawal from heroin and other opioids (such as prescription painkillers like hydrocodone and morphine) can become unbearable, creating intense pain, agitation and gastrointestinal distress. To minimize these symptoms we utilize buprenorphine (Suboxone, Subutex and Zubsolv) and other medications when necessary.
While detox helps you to transition to a sober state, it’s only the first stage of effective treatment. True and lasting sobriety requires you to treat addiction on all levels, including the emotional and psychological. Our treatment module allow you to seamlessly progress from our medical detox to any of our phenomenal inpatient drug rehab programs.
For many people addiction doesn’t occur alone. Instead it’s complicated, and even caused by mental health disorders. When one coexists simultaneous to an addiction it’s called a co-occurring disorder. A dual diagnosis refers to these and other conditions.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, almost 40 percent of the 20.2 million Americans who had a substance use disorder in 2014 had a co-occurring mental health disorder. For these millions of Americans, our rehab programs treat more than just substance use disorders.
In order to recognize the critical role of dual diagnosis treatment, it’s important to understand how addiction and mental illness are connected. The facts:
These associations necessitate that each disorder is fully treated in one synergistic approach. Without this, the untreated mental illness or lingering trauma could preclude a person from living a sober life. Mental health disorders are one of the most frequent causes of relapse.
Standing alone, addiction and mental illness are complex disorders. Together, these illnesses create a complicated situation which requires intensive, directed care.
Our inpatient dual diagnosis program integrates many of the same modalities that our addiction treatment programs do. This is because many of the modalities used for substance abuse (like CBT and DBT) are research-proven methods that work for mental health disorders too.
Our licensed clinical therapists work with you on a both an individual and group level, so that you have an ample opportunity to develop coping, interpersonal and relapse prevention skills.
Motivational interviewing helps a person to recognize and accept areas in their life which need to change in order to create a drug-free life. Our MI intervention is based on a positive and affirming alliance between the therapist and the client. This partnership empowers a person to identify and develop their own personal strengths as a way to successfully build a strong recovery.
Cognitive behavioral therapy teaches you to align your thoughts and emotions in a way which promotes positive action and healthy behaviors. Addiction is a maladaptive pattern which is heavily shaped by destructive thoughts and behaviors. This therapy teaches clients to anticipate certain issues or triggers which could threaten their sobriety. Here CBT instills an arsenal of coping skills which can effectively help you to move beyond these temptations and stressors.
An addiction is overwhelming. Instead of ignoring the dysfunctional (and harmful) thoughts, emotions and behaviors which accompany it, DBT supports you as you learn how to overcome them. We’ll help you to develop a motivation for change and increase your capabilities to cope with life’s stressors.
Throughout this process, you’ll learn how to:
If you have a demanding career you might not be able to afford to leave your professional responsibilities behind during treatment. Our treatment for professionals program allows executive level corporate professionals and licensed professionals to continue working on their careers while encountering our phenomenal dual diagnosis treatment.
We offer a men’s only treatment program which is built around the issues and concerns which hit men particularly hard during treatment and recovery. The National Institute of Mental Health cautions that “Men are more likely to develop a co-occurring disorder than women.” For this reason, we integrate dual diagnosis treatment for those facing these disorders. Challenge yourself and become more self-sufficient with our Adventure and Wilderness therapies.
Our women’s only treatment program grants women a welcoming and compassionate environment to ground their recovery in. This exclusive space will allow you to address whatever issues are unique to your life which fostered your addiction. As you renew and move away from these negatives states, your sobriety will be strengthened and your spirit renewed. If you suffer from depression, trauma or another co-occurring condition, our dual diagnosis treatment will help you to find emotional balance and freedom from addiction.
Treatment doesn’t have to be boring. Find excitement and stimulate your senses in our Adventure Therapy Program. Race across our zip line course, all the while building courage, self-confidence and interpersonal skills. This alternative therapy will help you to overcome trauma and other issues which drew you into an addictive state.
Healing comes in many ways. Horses are gentle, patient and empathetic creatures. Highly attuned by nature, horses are very sensitive to a person’s emotional state and respond accordingly. Their reactions, and yours to them, can highlight areas you may struggle with, so that you can work on changing them. Here you’ll learn to establish healthier boundaries, develop more effective non-verbal communication and learn to balance your emotions in a more constructive way.
Our 40-acre campus highlights the natural glory of Texas. Here you’ll find a setting that echoes the vitality and peace our program works so hard to instill into your recovery. An addiction can break you down. It steals hope, resilience, ambition and your sense of purpose. Our Wilderness Drug Rehab Program empowers you to rebuild these positive states and many more.
Within The Treehouse’s expansive wilderness setting you’ll be challenged as you learn a diverse array of survival skills under the guidance of our expert staff. Establish greater self-confidence as you build a fire and construct a shelter. As you employ these methods and more, you’ll develop valuable interpersonal and coping skills which fortify your treatment and ground your recovery.
The negative effects of addiction are wide-ranging and can deeply affect a person’s family and loved ones. Sometimes substance abuse results from dysfunction within a family, while in other circumstances it may cause it. In either instance, if the individual in treatment and their family are willing, family therapy and support can be a catalyst for positive change, growth and healing.
After addiction, your emotional and mental states can be severely unbalanced. To further address this, and to enhance our other modalities, we integrate mindfulness and stress management into our programs. These practices can bring you strength and center you, both during treatment and beyond. Mindfulness will help you to stay grounded so that you can approach your life in an intentional way which bolsters your sobriety.
Our commitment to your recovery doesn’t stop at the door. When you graduate from our treatment program we continue to invest in your recovery by reaching out to you twice a month. Beyond this, The Treehouse offers an Alumni program to help ensure your sobriety after leaving treatment.
If you’re trying to form a treatment plan, one of the most crucial elements to nail down is finances. But don’t get discouraged and let the cost of treatment stop you in your tracks. Our treatment specialists can help you to examine the following options to see how they can supplement or cover your needs.
Three words and one powerful opportunity: a fresh start. Addiction doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Instead, it’s influenced and sustained by negative thoughts, emotions and behaviors, many of which connect directly to things in your life. These elements, such as people, places, activities and even memories, can act as temptations and triggers which make it exceedingly difficult for some to forge a recovery close to home.
Separating yourself from these things creates a safe space and boundaries which can better protect you during this critical time. Additionally, when a person is away from all things familiar, they’re far more likely to remain in treatment and commit to their recovery. Lastly, the change of scenery and excitement that a new place offers can instill hope, inspiration and the desire for a more fulfilling life.
Our treatment programs are founded on the knowledge and principle that in order for treatment to be effective, it must recognize and nurture the unique landscape of each client’s life. Whether this means identifying and treating negative patterns or behaviors or recognizing and nurturing positive ones, we’re one hundred percent committed to your recovery.
This comes to life within The Treehouse’s unparalleled array of inpatient treatment programs and research-proven modalities, all of which offer you or your loved one the maximum chance of a successful recovery.
The Treehouse believes in a mind, body, spirit approach to addiction treatment. Nurture your body and spirit while you undergo treatment with our chef-prepared meals and Yoga, Tai Chi and meditation.
