Our Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment Programs

Alcohol and drug rehab levels of care will vary for each individual based on their personalized program and can be adjusted as they begin to progress. 1st Step is committed to treating each individual client as more than a number, and our professional and supportive staff will work with you to create the best program design for achieving recovery.

Benefits of 1stStep Behavioral Health Alcohol and Drug Treatment Programs

As mentioned earlier, alcohol and drug treatment programs at 1st Step Behavioral Health aim to provide high-quality care and treatment to clients. We design treatment programs that can bring a change in the lifestyle of people who are struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health conditions and its inevitable symptoms.  

Here we have enumerated some powerful benefits of professional alcohol and drug treatment programs. 

Benefits of 1st Step Behavioral Health

There is no denying that a unique and tailored drug treatment program is extremely helpful when it comes to navigating your road to recovery or building a foundation for a sober life. Whether your therapist selects intensive outpatient treatment for you or Sober Living and Aftercare Services, each program at 1stStep Behavioral Centre promotes healthy living for the long term.

1. Medical Stabilization

When an addict stops taking drugs or drinking alcohol, he/she experiences some withdrawal symptoms. Handling these symptoms becomes even more difficult if they have underlying mental or physical health disorders. 

 If the symptoms are acute or life-threatening, they require immediate medical treatment. A professional alcohol and drug treatment program, in this regard, ensures initial stabilization, along with medical monitoring on an ongoing basis. For example, with their apartment-style treatment, the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and the Residential Treatment Program provide ongoing supervision for clients. 

2. Relapse Prevention

Another potential benefit of seeking professional alcohol and drug therapy program is relapse prevention. Relapse is one of the common concerns among drug addicts and may trigger a number of mental and medical health problems. 

 Excessive doses of drugs or alcohol, especially when taken with other substances, at a time when a patient’s body is in a vulnerable state due to detox may increase the risk of fatal health complications.

Alcohol and drug therapy programs at 1stStep Behavioral Health ensures patient monitoring by providing timely medical analysis. It plays an important role in preventing the risk of relapse. 

3. Therapeutic Intervention

Our alcohol and drug therapy programs do much more than merely providing medical assistance or care. Patients are provided a comfortable and home-like atmosphere by our clinical staff. They provide consistent therapeutic support to guide patients throughout the treatment.

 That is vitally helpful in preparing him/her for sobriety. Group therapies at our health center are considered best when it comes to providing therapeutic intervention.

4. Family Support

These programs allow family members of the drug addict to learn how to provide a support system that can play a positive role in the recovery process. They can further expand their knowledge about the nature of the disorder and other behavioral issues.

5. Aftercare Support

 All alcohol and drug rehab programs are designed with aftercare support and referrals that ensure continued support all patients need, regardless of their recovery time. Aftercare/Alumni program is undeniably one of the most significant parts of the recovery process. The program leads patients to begin a successful, sober life while helping him/her understand life goals. The treatment centers are always open for patients who are a part of after support recovery programs.
