Starting Treatment

Starting Treatment within an Inpatient Rehab Center starts with an personalized treatment plan. This treatment plan is put together off your intake assessment where Doctors gathered information regarding your addiction to alcohol. The personalized treatment plan will hold a variety of treatment aspects that will help you heal your mind and body from the effects of alcohol.


Detox is the first phase in treatment. You will be cleansed of the chemicals and toxins related to alcohol use. This is done during the withdrawal period which can be painful and overwhelming. Under direct supervision of a Doctor you will be given a benzodiazepine medication  to lessen symptoms of withdrawal and cravings, allowing you to work through your addiction in a more comfortable state.

Therapy and Counseling

Individual counseling allows you one on one time with a chemical dependency counselor to get to the cause of your addiction as well as any other mental or emotional effects of your addiction. You will be able to help others in a similar situation during group counseling, helping yourself by helping others. Your friends and family will be invited to join you in treatment to express their concern and hurt due to your addiction, you will be mending broken relationships during family counseling.
