Wellness Retreat Recovery Drug Rehab for Adults is designed to individually address the challenges adults face in addiction and recovery. We understand that mature adults may have many broader issues to deal with when they enter recovery, and we take them all into consideration to ensure the best chance at sobriety as possible.
Drug Rehab For Adults Takes in Specific Considerations
We know adults have many factors in their lives that might contribute to addiction, such as:
- Marital issues
- Job loss
- Career responsibilities
- Family problems
- Legal issues
- Home loss
- Medical conditions
Our specially trained staff is knowledgeable in each of these areas. We help to address all of these issues, based on the individual client’s needs. Our state-of-the-art facility allows processing of emotions surrounding these issues in a safe environment. While at our treatment center, we promise to address all the problems in our client’s lives and to help them get back on their feet for the best shot at recovery.
When an Adult Does not Want to Accept Help
When it comes to young adults and teens, parental influence is often effective in getting a person struggling with addiction the help they need. But, after age 18, a person is an adult who can make their own decisions. And, many times, adults either don’t think they need help with an addiction or simply may not wish to part from their addictive behaviors. However, without help, addiction can and does lead to a number of consequences and even fatality.
But, what can family and loved ones do to get their adult loved one the help they don’t know they need or want? Here at Wellness Retreat Recovery, we wish to accommodate any and every addiction situation, including the less-than-receptive adults struggling with receiving help. So, we provide family counseling services that loved ones of these individuals in these situations can utilize. And, we also provide a number of educational materials and sessions to help the entire family unit understand more about addiction and what they can do for their loved one.
When an Adult gets Dependent on Medication
According to the National Institutes of Health, around 23 million Americans live with symptoms of chronic pain every day. Chronic pain is pain which is experienced for a period of three consecutive days and can be brought on for any or all reasons. For ages, humans have been utilizing medicinal properties to manage the agitating and debilitating effects of chronic pain. And, for ages, humans have been developing physical and psychological dependencies to these treatments. But, the prevalence of addictive medications used in the treatment of chronic pain is currently astounding. In fact, according to news outlets, America consumes most of the world’s supply of narcotic medications. The result? The opioid epidemic we are dealing with currently and the near 100 deaths caused by overdose every day.
Maybe you have started to take more of your medication to experience the results you need to ward off symptoms of pain. Maybe you feel sick when you don’t take your pain meds. Or, maybe you find yourself thinking about your medicine and go out of your way to obtain pain pills when a prescription runs out. Whatever the case, if you think you have a problem with a prescription medication, you probably do. However, there are a number of services we offer here at The Wellness Retreat Recovery.
Methods to Managing Pain for Adults Dealing with Prescription Addiction
Medically Monitored Detox: Detoxing from prescription medications can be dangerous if done alone. Additionally, it can be quite challenging due to unavoidable and agitating withdrawal symptoms like fever, chills, soreness, nausea, etc. But, medical detox allows individuals to detox in the safety of a professional establishment, overseen by expert doctors and other professionals. Additionally, it allows for the use of specific medications that reduce challenging withdrawal symptoms. With both the safety and comfort of medically monitored detox, patients are more likely to complete the detox process and move on to the next stage of recovery.
Pain Management: Once you’re done detoxing from your prescription medication, the symptoms of chronic pain won’t magically disappear. You’ll need to establish alternative methods of treatment to manage your chronic pain. At our facility, we focus on pain management efforts around both medicinal and holistic therapeutic practices. And, we offer the option of working with a consulting pain-management physician who is also an addiction expert. This physician develops specific and individualized pain management solutions for each patient who requires it while staying with us.
Aftercare: Once treatment concludes, you will still have to manage your chronic pain. But, we won’t be far from your reach. Aftercare services allow graduated treatment participants to continue with recovery efforts while retaining a connection to our sober community. With a commitment to helping develop long-term sobriety for each patient, our aftercare services provide the support those in recovery need.
