Explore what you each individual should expect as a loved one enters rehab.
Beginning treatment for substance use disorder can feel overwhelming for patients and their families. In our belief, communication is vital to help ease the anxiety that comes along with entering treatment and beginning the journey of recovery. We take great pride in our level of interaction with patients and their support system throughout the treatment process, and to always remain available for questions or concerns. To help relieve feelings of nervousness or uncertainty, we have some briefs about what to expect when enrolling in treatment at Lighthouse Recovery Institute.
Once you have completed the admissions process and have planned to travel to our addiction treatment center, you have already begun the important work of recovery. We want to acknowledge and commend the fact that you have made the brave decision to seek a fulfilling, sober life- you are already on your way!
When you arrive, there will be assessments to complete with our clinical and medical team. These assessments will help us to identify the best plan for your drug rehab treatment or outpatient treatment and ensure that you have any necessary medications.
During your first week of drug and alcohol rehab, you will create an individual treatment plan with your primary therapist to focus on your goals.
Following your intake, you will be attending groups on a regular basis. Licensed clinicians and members of the clinical team facilitate groups that involve a wide range of topics and therapeutic methods. Some of the modalities used are DBT, CBT, art therapy, traumaresolution, relapse prevention, self-esteem building, conflict resolution, relationship, family issues, core beliefs, and many more areas of focus.
Each week, you will have an individual therapy session where you will be able to assess your progress and process core issues related to mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. You will also have an opportunity each week to meet with the psychiatrist, physician’s assistant, case manager, dietician, brain mapping specialist, and other facility and auxiliary providers providing robust services.
During times, outside of the group and individual appointments, you will have the opportunity to attend the gym three times per week, where you can work with personal trainers and receive massage and chiropractic services. We also transport patients to twelve-step meetings daily. We are committed to offering opportunities to attend diverse types of meetings, including gender-specific meetings, LGBT+-focused meetings, ACOA and family dynamic meetings, and local twelve-step community events. Additionally, the staff is always available to transport patients to religious services.
Throughout your stay at Lighthouse Recovery Institute, you will have opportunities to explore all facets of your life and gain a new sense of freedom, self-esteem, and purpose. We look forward to walking with you on this journey!
