How Professional Treatment Can Spark a Lifelong Recovery

Why Addiction is So Difficult to Overcome

Breaking free from a substance use disorder is incredibly difficult. You must deal with lasting brain changes caused by addictive substances and the underlying factors that led to substance use. Starting the rehab process can help you overcome the following barriers to recovery:

  • Invasive and unwanted drug and alcohol cravings
  • Multiple failed attempts to quit using substances
  • Debilitating and uncomfortable withdrawal effects
  • Fear for your safety during the detox process
  • Concern about whether you can afford treatment

Professional treatment can help when you’re experiencing these concerns. Knowing what to expect can help ease your mind about recovery.

Achieving Recovery

Overcoming addiction can help free you from the negative cycle of behaviors and help you build a  happier and healthier life. The benefits of recovery are challenging to overstate because they can affect nearly every aspect of your life. Achieving sobriety can help you to:

  • Learn how to deal with cravings and temptation
  • Help you to resist future relapse
  • Restore your physical and mental health
  • Find your purpose and motivation

Furthermore, getting assistance at an addiction treatment center can help you repair damaged relationships, rebuild your career, and lead a happier and more fulfilling life.

How the Rehab Process Can Help

Addiction treatment is an effective way of helping you achieve sobriety. Despite the difficult nature of addiction, most people will recover if they seek care. Effective treatments from mental health experts can aid in the rehab process. 

Rehab works for everyone who fully commits to it. You can recover no matter how long you have lived with addiction or how severe your symptoms may be. When you start treatment with a commitment to recovery, you can immerse yourself in the rehab process and all of the benefits it has to offer.

Addiction rehab offers a wide range of services. Shadow Mountain Recovery’s medical detox can treat withdrawal symptoms. Targeted therapies can help you overcome mental health challenges. We can also teach effective strategies to prevent relapse in specialized groups. Recovery support is built and fostered in all of our recovery programs.

Therapies and Treatments

The therapies and treatments offered at Shadow Mountain Recovery are firmly rooted in evidence-based care. We use these treatments because they work and have shown their effectiveness in research and practice. Each treatment makes up a piece of the recovery puzzle, helping you to achieve your wellness and lifestyle goals.

Examples of evidence-based therapies include:

  • Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). MAT helps treat physical and mental withdrawal symptoms so you can feel your best
  • Individual Therapy. Helps you determine the root cause of your addiction and teaches you to find new ways of thinking
  • Group Therapy. Builds social support for recovery and offers you an opportunity to give back to others
  • Dual-Diagnosis Treatment. Simultaneously treats mental health conditions that commonly occur alongside addiction
  • Relapse Prevention Programs. Teach clients to resist relapse so they can sustain long-term recovery.

Each of these treatments makes up a small part of the rehab process. By combining several effective treatments, we ensure that you have everything you need to achieve recovery.


Levels of Care

Treatment doesn’t happen all at once. Different stages in the rehab process require varying levels of treatment. At Shadow Mountain Recovery, we have specialized facilities to meet these needs. The levels of treatment include:

1. Medical Detox

Medical detox is the first step in the rehab process. A detox facility offers a safe and comfortable place to withdraw and detoxify your body. Our treatment team can administer targeted medications to treat physical withdrawal and help you recover as quickly and comfortably as possible. Detox can also keep you safe from dangerous withdrawal effects.

2. Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs offer a home-like environment for you to live in while you’re steeped in nonstop treatment and therapies. These programs offer intensive care options and teach the skills required for a lifetime in recovery.

3. Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is a less intensive form of addiction care. You continue living at home while visiting your treatment center for therapy groups and meeting with your providers. Outpatient treatment can fit around busy schedules. It’s best for people with a strong support system and a stable living environment. You can access long-lasting support to stay on the path to recovery.
