Here at Journey Healing Centers, we know that alcohol abuse is an addiction that affects people daily. Alcohol abuse is extremely damaging for both the addict and their family who feel like they can do nothing but stand by and watch their loved one give up their life to this debilitating disease. Alcoholism has become a very common disease in today’s society because of how the media portrays alcohol as being an easily manageable substance with little side-effects. This irresponsible misrepresentation of alcohol results in large amounts of confusion from the general public. People who have struggled with alcohol abuse understand that these descriptions are not true. Alcohol abuse is also nearly impossible to overcome alone. We employ caring licensed counselors who are experienced in helping people to overcome alcohol addiction.
The assistance that you or your loved one deserves, is only one phone call away. Our caring professionals are standing by to answer your call. They are experienced with alcohol addiction and they can answer any questions that you may have. They will help you to take the steps that are necessary to regain your freedom from alcohol. Our programs were specifically created to provide a safe and supportive environment that is necessary to help those facing this debilitating disease. Our alcohol rehab centers have the purpose of providing healing on many levels that include psychological, emotional, and also the physical problems that accompany alcohol and drug addiction.
Recovery includes two main stages of treatment. Awareness is the first stage, and it includes the moment where the addicted individual becomes aware of the thoughts and behaviors that have enabled them to facilitate their addiction. The second stage of recovery is called the transformation stage. This stage involves the addicted person beginning to change the negative thoughts and behaviors that feed the addiction, in order to gain a more healthy and positive life.
Here at Journey Healing Centers, we have created a variety of activities that were specifically chosen to supplement individual and group therapy, and support the recovery process. Some of these activities include Art Therapy, Yoga, Toltec Wisdom Groups, Rhythms and Life Drumming Therapy, Sweat Lodge and Nature Walks. These type of activities not only serve as wholesome sober activities, but they also allow our guests to gain insight into their lives and help them to begin setting a foundation of creating a lifestyle free from addiction.
We understand that no two addictions or people are the same; therefore, in addition to our core program our clinicians put great effort into customizing each treatment plan and support activities to ensure that the guest will receive the exact care that they need to help them overcome their individual addiction. We know that specialized treatment programs that are tailored to each residents needs will result in the most effective results. Depending on whether the person is addicted to alcohol or drugs, we will fit a program that is the most effective in terms of treatment on the personal level. By doing this, we are better able to assure that the guest will enjoy lasting sobriety.
Some of the core philosophies of our treatment include understanding and development. We provide specific counseling and treatment to each guest as they embark on their journey to personal fulfillment and freedom from alcohol addiction. Our alcohol abuse centers serve as a safe and peaceful environment for our guests to feel peaceful and comfortable. We will work together to bring about the necessary skills and behaviors that are necessary to maximize the potential of each guest, and to maximize the opportunity for lasting sobriety upon completion of our program. Battling addiction is a serious and painful process, but it is not a fight that should be done alone. Through our treatment and guidance, we will fight to make this the last battle with addiction that our guests and their loved ones will every have to struggle with.
