Alcohol addiction treatment is a process with several stages, but the type of treatment that’s best for one person will not necessarily work for another. Alcohol addiction treatment success rates are dependent on finding the right combination of medication, behavior therapy and ongoing aftercare. That’s why at Forward Recovery we ensure we are able to offer a range of options at our facilities including our luxury residential home and outpatient clinic. Here we’ve outlined the main stages and types of alcohol addiction treatment programs we provide.
The first stage on treatment is the detox stage when alcohol is flushed from the body. This needs to be carried out by medical professionals as withdrawing from an alcohol addiction can lead to unpleasant and potentially dangerous symptoms. Possible withdrawal symptoms include headaches, fever, nausea, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, and hallucinations. Our experienced and expert staff will support you during this period both physically and emotionally.
Residential / Inpatient Alcohol Rehab
A residential or inpatient treatment program requires you to live on site in our luxury residential home. After the detox is complete, you will stay and receive 24/7 care including a routine of medication, therapy, and counseling to help you learn how to adjust to your new sober life in a secure and structured environment.
Intensive Outpatient Alcohol Rehab
A less rigid treatment program is the intensive outpatient treatment plan; you would live in our luxury sober living home and attend scheduled therapy sessions and meetings. However, you have the freedom to leave the leave the alcohol addiction treatment center for other commitments like school or work. This option is often a helpful transition for patients leaving an inpatient program.
Outpatient Alcohol Rehab
Outpatient alcohol addiction treatment enables patients to live independently, away from the treatment center, and only return for scheduled therapy and support meetings. These patients can take what they’ve learned in their therapy and counseling and apply their new life skills to real-world situations, but with the ongoing support of our team.
The final stage in the alcohol addiction recovery process is an independent life but with the security that comes from knowing the Forward Recovery ream are there when you need them. Support groups and therapy are often effective tools for giving recovering addicts a place to express their feelings, celebrate their accomplishments and discuss any temptations they may face in life.
Forward Recovery’s Full Continuum of Care
Live on property in a supported, trigger-free environment. The expert staff of Forward Recovery’s residential substance abuse programs offer 24/7 support and will walk you through intensive therapy while listening with open hearts.
For clients who need intensive therapy but not full-time support, we offer our intensive outpatient program. This level of care provides intensive therapy while allowing you the freedom to attend work or school while staying in one of our luxurious sober living homes.
