The four stages of drug and alcohol rehab will vary from person to person and are customized for each individual. In general, they include the following stages:
Introduction to Addiction Treatment: In these first few days of rehab, you’ll be introduced to your counselor and a thorough medical evaluation is performed by our medical staff. Based on your specific needs, a custom wellness program is designed for you.
Detox: The detox stage is performed at home and lasts anywhere from a few days to multiple weeks, depending on the severity of your physical withdrawal symptoms. During this period, many individuals experience not just physical withdrawal, but also emotional and psychological withdrawal. Your wellness/treatment plan will address specific triggers for your drug and alcohol abuse and provide you with healthy coping tools for dealing with life.
Abstain from your Drug(s) of Choice/Maintain Sobriety: This rehab stage helps you to continue identifying your triggers and provides further insight and education on relapsing. During this phase, there is a strong emphasis on creating healthy habits and an overall healthy lifestyle through various alternative and modern therapies.
Long-Term Recovery: This final stage is focused on creating goals for the long-term in your life. It involves helping you build new relationships, engage in new hobbies and activities, and finding areas of your life that bring you joy.
