Unlike 100 years ago, when addiction was viewed as a moral problem, today we recognize that there are a host of factors that contribute to drug addiction and alcoholism. Our drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs philosophy is to address the underlying causes of substance abuse and treat the core issues, not just the addiction. Authentic Recovery Center is a Dual Diagnosis treatment center that understands there are many contributing factors and offers each client personalized treatment plans so they can receive the benefit of the most advanced and comprehensive clinical techniques available to successfully overcome their addiction to drugs and alcohol.
Inpatient and Outpatient Programs
In the barest sense, dual diagnosis is the idea that most people abuse or misuse drugs and alcohol to self-medicate a root psychiatric or psychological issue. In order for addiction treatment to be effective, the core issues that culminate in substance abuse have to be addressed during the initial stages of treatment. Simply by enrolling in treatment, people are removed from their patterns of abusive consumption of alcohol and drugs. This allows therapy, psychological techniques and psychiatric medicine to play an important role in addressing the emotional, physical, and cognitive symptoms that are present when a person is operating from a place of having a non-chemically altered state of mind.
Medically Managed Detoxification
Considered the first step towards recovery for many clients, medically managed detoxification services are an important component of effective treatment. During this stage prescription medications are utilized by a private doctor to alleviate dangerous and uncomfortable signs of withdrawal. Because the individual in detox is so fragile, it is imperative that one’s detox reflects the larger goals of treatment – the attainment of which requires specialists working in tandem to provide comprehensive care.
For many people, simply detoxing is not enough. Our residential inpatient rehabilitation program offers a resource for clients who are highly motivated to change, but need support understanding both why they use mind-altering substances and how they can remain clean and sober and be happy. At this juncture of treatment, education and a dawning clinical awareness of how and why one’s addiction manifests is critical. Through both intensive individual therapy and rigorous group processing, destructive patterns of behavior are analyzed, and faulty modes of reacting are deconstructed.
After people complete residential treatment there is often the need for an intermediate level of ongoing residential support. Through continued observation, both individually and on a group level, our trained professionals are able to distinguish between temporary symptoms and root psychiatric conditions. With a program oversight that is designed to support people in their ongoing recovery, but that doesn’t prevent them from working or pursuing scholastic achievements, this level of care is ideal for helping people to safely move forward in life.
For clients that are transitioning from Continuing Care, or that just need clinical support for addiction and dual diagnosis issues, Intensive Outpatient represents a non-residential level of care ideally suited for many people’s needs. More often than not, the behaviors of drinking and using are just the tips of the iceberg. Even after a pathway to recovery is established, there often exists below the surface a hardened psychological system of negative beliefs, emotional instability and unresolved issues. In this program, which runs Monday thru Friday, from 10:30am to 3:30pm, people can continue clinical treatment and develop meaningful relationships with other like-minded individuals on their own journey in recovery.
Authentic Recovery Center’s aftercare program is built around a vast and vibrant alumni community. We provide the full-spectrum of support that helps each client to receive treatment in a way that works within the framework of their own belief systems and individual experiences. One of ARC’s guiding philosophies is regarding this transitional period as its own phase of treatment, with its own discrete set of issues and concerns. As such, ARC meets these needs with a distinct set of clinical protocols specifically geared to address the ever-changing needs of our graduating population.
A Rehabilitation Program With Multiple Levels Of Care
One of the unique aspects of Authentic Recovery Center is that we offer so many different levels of care. With both inpatient and outpatient programs and short and long-term treatment options, our program offers multiple choices for drug and alcohol rehab to meet a variety of needs. Our entire treatment approach is based on the concept of customized and personal treatment. We are fundamentally different in this regard. Many people that enroll with us have been to multiple treatment centers or have tried to stop drinking and using on their own. In many circumstances the primary reason for a lack of sustainable success with recovery is simply because there are core psychological or psychiatric issues that have not been addressed and properly treated. In order for addiction treatment to be effective the core issues that culminate in substance abuse have to be addressed during the initial stages of treatment and must persist throughout all phases of recovery. Each person is unique and without question, what one person will respond to will not always work for another person. Unfortunately, many traditional treatment centers offer rehabilitation with a cookie-cutter approach that allows many people (especially those with a dual diagnosis) to slip through the cracks. With a total residential capacity of just 12 people, we can ensure that treatment will be tailored to the unique needs of the individual.
