No one intends to become addicted to alcohol or drugs, but the reality is substance abuse is a very slippery slope. It’s an addictive behavior that immediately begins to push the limits of one’s self-control. When an individual starts to experiment with recreational intoxication, his or her body begins to adapt to the frequent presence and effects of chemical substances in the system. The body soon becomes dependent on the individual’s consumption of those substances, needing them in order to perform important functions. Moreover, while the body is becoming dependent recreational substance abuse is causing the deterioration of physical and psychological health.
Addiction to alcohol and drugs has been the downfall of many good people, destroying families, costing careers and lives. Fortunately, the destructive disease of addiction can be overcome. Many individuals who suffer from addiction avoid the recovery process, oftentimes due to fear of withdrawal and being intimidated by the rehabilitation process. However, short-term treatment options can be an ideal recovery solution for those who would prefer a brief program that can offer intensive treatments.
There are different types of treatment to accommodate both the diverse effects of addiction and the variable needs of those suffering from chemical dependency in Clovis County. Short-term residential treatment is an intensive recovery program that lasts up to 30 days. Like other effective programs, short-term residential addiction treatment is designed to help individuals achieve lasting sobriety through counseling and psychotherapy, group sessions, family therapy, holistic and alternative therapies, and a number of other treatments. For those who are beginning recovery for the first time, brief programs that last up to 30 days can be an attractive alternative, especially since they don’t require long-term commitment.
Over the course of a one-month stay as part of the short-term residential program at First Step Recovery, residents will receive quality, effective treatments that afford them the skills and strategies to not only achieve sobriety, but to maintain it long-term as well. One-month addiction treatment programs typically begin with a detox, during which time the body is cleansed by ridding itself of alcohol, drugs, and other harmful toxins. After detoxification, individuals are no longer physically addicted and begin to overcome the psychological aspects of dependency by participating in psychotherapy and counseling, group sessions, and a variety of other treatments. By the end of the program, individuals will have established a solid foundation for sustained sobriety.
Alcohol and drug addiction causes hardship, adversity, and pain. Our goal is to make recovery from addiction a comfortable and smooth transition back to sobriety while helping individuals develop healthy habits and lifestyles. Having a safe, serene environment in which to focus on rehabilitation is an essential part of the recovery process, but First Steps Recovery has more than safety and serenity.
