Crossing Recovery Center
What can be expected from residential rehab at Crossing Recovery Center?
Our experience in treating Substance Use Disorders has demonstrated that certain medications can be vital in helping some patients attain mental and physical stability. Specifically, we may choose to administer drugs that reduce the cravings associated with abstaining from substance use, thereby making your recovery more comfortable and also reducing your chances of relapsing. For example, if you are addicted to prescription painkillers (such as codeine or oxycodone) then medications like buprenorphine and naltrexone can diminish typical withdrawal symptoms. After this type of treatment, you are likely to be more responsive to the programs of therapy that we provide.
When it comes to psychological treatments, we tailor our therapy programs to the individual needs of our patients. We equip you with the skills you will need to cope with life’s stresses, without turning to substance use in the future. Through cognitive behavioral therapy, you will also gain a better understanding of why you developed a problem with drugs or alcohol in the first place. We also offer family programs that have a therapy component. These programs are geared toward mending damaged relationships, healing bonds and teaching your loved ones about the highly complex nature of addiction.
Why residential rehabilitation is highly recommended?
While many patients are understandably wary of undertaking the intimidating commitment of entering a residential rehabilitation program, we believe it is the smartest and most successful way to recover from addiction. What you experience and learn during a short stay at Crossing Recovery Center will establish a firm foundation for sobriety.
Studies on recovery from addiction show that patients who are admitted to an inpatient medical detox program but refuse to undergo any further treatment, are almost as likely to return to substance misuse. True rehabilitation requires careful, long-term treatment, and that is what our Crossing Recovery Center can provide. In a comfortable and relaxing setting, you will receive constant physical and emotional support from our team and from fellow members of the Crossing Recovery Center community.
Many patients continue to struggle with difficult medical and psychological issues after the detox process is complete, and our residential rehabilitation program allows us to monitor your condition and helps to reduce ongoing problems. For example, a member of our psychiatric or counseling team will always be on hand to talk to you if you are feeling distraught, and we may provide you with the aforementioned medications that can reduce cravings or withdrawal symptoms when physical discomfort becomes too difficult to tolerate.
What comes after residential rehabilitation?
As you are getting closer to competing your stay in the residential rehab program, you will be assessed once again. At this point, we can help you make a smooth transition back into society by finding a place for you in a sober living community or locating a support group in your area. For patients needing ongoing care and treatment, our Transitions program will be discussed. The goal of this program is to help you to make a smooth, gradual transition back to independent living. You will be monitored, but you will earn more autonomy and freedom over time. Throughout this six-month program you can work toward your education and other life goals and begin to engage in family and social commitments that used to be at the center of your life. Additionally, you will continue to form meaningful, long-lasting bonds with people who have been through similar experiences, and these types of mutually supportive bonds can help to ensure that your recovery is permanent.
Residential Rehabilitation Goals:
- Develop methods of coping to continue to maintain abstinence and psychiatric/behavioral stabilization
- Teach patients relapse prevention strategies and skills to decrease and/or eliminate the cycle of detoxification and inpatient rehabilitation
- Provide patients with methods of coping strategies and skills to deal with unresolved grief, depression and anger issues that may contribute to the patient’s psychiatric/behavioral compensation
- Assist patients in developing ongoing goals toward work and or education to ensure a growth mindset is supported and the practicalities of living life sober are addressed.
