Just like no two alcoholics are alike, no alcohol detox program is like another. Alcoholism is a complicated and tricky disease. Our qualified First Step® treatment staff creates an individualized treatment plan for every client who comes to us. We develop a customized alcohol detox treatment plan that meets each individual’s needs and gives them their best opportunity to achieve long term sobriety.
Attending a long term alcohol detox and rehab center helps alcoholics by removing them from their environment for a period of time with fewer distractions. We can recommend treatment facilities for you or your loved one to attend right after completing the First Step® detox process. Any such treatment facility should be a safe place that is removed from the places where our clients drank and, in some cases, also used drugs. There is no quick fix for alcohol addiction. Recovery is a process. The skills one learns during intensive inpatient program must be integrated into everyday life, and this takes time.
Any alcohol treatment plan should include the following goals: managing your cravings, avoiding circumstances in which one might be tempted to drink, identifying and dealing with various triggers, helping to cope and heal from any past trauma or abuse. , and learning the tools to avoid relapse.
