Turning Point offers a number of addiction treatment programs for our valued patients, all based on the client placement criteria the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) has established. The goal of a treatment program is not only to stop the addiction, but also to help people return as functioning and productive members of families, communities, and the workplace. Like other chronic illnesses, addiction can be successfully managed. Research has shown that most people who attend and remain in treatment stop using, decrease their criminal activity, and improve their social, occupational, and psychological functioning.
Our addiction treatment programs include:
Part of the success stemming from treatment programs depends on the effectiveness of the treatment program. Here are a few things to look for in an excellent facility:
While you may be considering cost as a factor in choosing a program, you also need to consider whether it is accredited and whether it has good reviews. Only former clients can honestly tell you how the program worked for them and whether or not the staff was helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. Make sure you visit the center before you actually attend treatment. You want to ensure the facility is clean and hospitable.
Detoxification (detox) is many times the first step to overcoming addiction. Our bodies can easily become dependent on the substances we consume. Caffeine is mildly addictive substance, and withdrawal of this drug can result in mild discomfort. However, more intensely addictive drugs can have severe withdrawal symptoms, including an uncontrollable craving for more of the substance. Symptoms can be both psychological and physical, and detox is best accomplished in a controlled environment, especially since some drug withdrawal can be life-threatening. A good addiction treatment plan will facilitate your recovery by helping you take the first step. These facilities will be medically managed, with trained staff who are experienced with the detoxification process.
Does the treatment program offer any post-detox care? Great programs will have methods for reintegration into society, such as halfway houses or transitional living. Those who continue treatment are more likely to recover from addiction compared to those who experience brief treatment and immediately return to their previous circumstances.
