Rehabilitation at Retreat
Recovery Through Our Core Clinical Programming serving all of Pennsylvania
& Surrounding Areas
addiction to drugs or alcohol is an extensive process that will vary from patient to patient. Therefore,
it is important to seek addiction treatment through a center that will
treat every patient as an individual rather than relying on a one-size-fits-all
approach. Retreat at Lancaster County is a premier addiction treatment
center in Pennsylvania, where you can find comprehensive rehabilitation
programs with options including
partial hospitalization and
intensive outpatient programs. Below, you can learn more about rehabilitation, which is the first step
in establishing a healthy, sober lifestyle.
What Is Involved in Rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation requires a multi-faceted approach for success because addiction
is a complex disease with a number of influencing factors to consider.
Assessment and detox – Following admission to our center, patients will undergo a psychological
and physical assessment to determine their specific care needs. Should
detox be a necessary component of your care, you will be under continuous
medical monitoring in an
inpatient setting for complete safety and comfort.
Individual therapy sessions – Drug and alcohol addiction often coexist with psychological issues, which
may be tackled through individual therapy. One-on-one sessions will offer
complete privacy and discretion to allow you to achieve personal growth
through your counseling.
Group therapy – Group therapy is another effective strategy for facing emotional issues
associated with addiction, and it can also be an opportunity to learn
new coping mechanisms from others who have been in similar situations.
Because patients are separated into age- and gender-specific groups, they
are able to communicate with peers for a more comfortable group therapy
Medication management – Medication may be used in a number of ways during rehabilitation. Certain
medications may be beneficial for managing co-occurring conditions, while
other medications are available to reduce alcohol dependence or act as
Holistic therapies –
Because our center relies on the philosophy of treating the whole person
rather than simply focusing on the disease of addiction, holistic therapies
are an integral component of healing.
Why Should You Seek Professional Rehab Care?
If you or a loved one is struggling with substance abuse, you should not
hesitate to seek professional care. Trying to go cold turkey or cut down
on drug or alcohol use can not only be ineffective in treating addiction,
but it can be a dangerous strategy with the symptoms of withdrawal. To
