Pikeville, KY, is an awesome place full of awesome people. But even the most awesome people can fall prey to addiction, and at the Brookside Treatment alcohol rehab, we’re experts at guiding people along their recovery journey. The type of addiction treatment you receive depends on a variety of factors, including your availability, budget, age and unique experiences.
Below is an explanation of the main treatment practices at our addiction center for helping people overcome substance abuse and get back on track to living their best lives.
Residential treatment services are the ideal solution for people with moderate to severe substance use disorders. They provide an opportunity to remove yourself entirely from daily life and hit the reset button in a safe place with a highly structured routine that’s designed to heal.
For many people with serious alcohol or drug abuse problems, getting to and from appointments at a treatment facility is a challenge. Missing appointments or being late on treatment programs decreases your confidence and makes you more likely to quit.
With inpatient drug or alcohol rehab, you don’t need to stress about transport, timing or sticking to your routine. With residential treatment, you get around-the-clock care from a team of medical experts and a unique opportunity to bond with your fellow residents, who are also your housemates. You’ll take part in individual and group therapy, psychoeducation, exercise and fun activities such as art and music therapy.
Outpatient drug and alcohol treatment requires you to be more responsible for yourself than inpatient addiction treatment programs. If you’re very sick, this might not be possible — and there’s no shame in that at all. However, if you have responsibilities to take care of, such as children, work or school, it might be the best way to treat a mild to moderate substance use disorder.
You have access to the same treatment modalities you would on an inpatient rehab program; the main difference is that you don’t sleep at the facility.
Medically Supervised Detox
Medical detox is a necessity for many people who struggle with alcoholism because of the way the substance interacts with the body. At our rehab facility, we can manage detox for moderate alcohol use disorder, but chronic alcohol abuse disorder might necessitate hospitalization to ensure you get the required care and support. Benzodiazepines and other medications are sometimes used to ease withdrawal symptoms, and then you’re gradually tapered off all substances until you’re drug- and alcohol-free.
Our rehab program is available to individuals who have been court-ordered to get clean. If you need to stage an intervention or include the police in helping a loved one get the medical attention necessary to heal, help is out there. Calling the police on a friend or family member might feel like betrayal, but remember that in the long term, you could save their life and give them hope for a happier, healthier future.
Rehab is just the beginning of the recovery journey. Once you’ve completed your stay, you’ll need to continue working hard to stay sober and avoid relapse. At our rehab facility, you become a member of the family, and we’re here for you to answer any questions or offer any advice you might need. You can get access to a case manager, continue attending individual or group therapy and get help for mental health issues.
Support groups are a key component in the journey of most people who succeed in maintaining abstinence long-term. We can refer you to local 12-step meetings or help you gain access to family therapy and mental health services administration.
