Substance abuse destroys the lives of people in Savannah, GA who are afflicted by a dependency on drugs and/or alcohol. Rehabilitation, or rehab, is a treatment method designed to help patients address addiction and help them to identify and steer clear of triggers that could lead them to relapse. Our team provides the people of Savannah, GA with a healthy and compassionate atmosphere for people who are ready to start recovering from drug and alcohol addiction through personalized care and custom rehabilitation plans that meet the physical, psychological, social, medical, vocational and emotional needs of each and every patient.
Unfortunately, because of the ways in which addiction is stigmatized, many people often conceal their problems with substance dependency from their family members, and sometimes entire families conceal a member’s addiction from the outside world. This is often a common response to substance abuse, but it creates a dysfunctional dynamic between loved ones, friends and the addicted individual. In these situations, an intervention can be the best solution to get an individual to agree to rehabilitation. We strongly recommend using a therapist or an interventionist (an intervention professional) to mediate the intervention itself.
Interventions can be indispensable for everyone concerned, and the benefits include:
- Creating a safe environment
- Helping people to air their fears and anger
- Getting an addicted individual to agree to treatment
Like an intervention, detox is a common precursor to treatment, but should not be mistaken for addiction rehabilitation recovery. It is essential to understand that detox will not “cure” an addiction. Detox, or detoxification, is a beneficial initial step toward recovery that will allow individuals to properly and swiftly withdraw from the substance(s) they are addicted to, sometimes with assistance from medication. There are two commonly utilized kinds of detoxification:
MEDICALLY SUPERVISED DETOXIFICATION
(Also known as medically supervised withdrawal) happens in a hospital or inpatient facility where the addict’s withdrawal is monitored by a nurse or doctor.
Social detoxification occurs in a residential or outpatient facility, and involves instructing the addict and preparing them for treatment.
Depending on the needs of our client, we can offer either type of detox.
Our treatment team provides rehab for people in all stages of addiction, whether they have only started displaying signs of dependency or are persistent abusers drugs or alcohol. Our rehab programs include, but aren’t limited to, treatment for:
