Residential Treatment Programs
Personalized Care in a Safe, Supportive Environment
Substance abuse can be a debilitating disease. While the stigma surrounding drug addiction may lead some to consider that it is a moral issue, or perhaps one of willpower, drug addiction is mostly a treatable illness. However, treatment is not always straightforward, and no cures exist. Rather than helping recovering addicts find a cure for their problem, we at Prosperity Haven understand that the best way forward is to adapt – by reducing cravings, minimizing relapses, and providing addicts with the emotional and physical guidance necessary to survive all stages of recovery, from the early withdrawal period to the many years spent sober after heavy drug use.
Life is more than a high can ever convey, and we wish for all recovering addicts to have a chance at living their lives to the fullest. To that end, we help recovering addicts by offering a variety of substance abuse treatment programs on all levels of recovery. For many, that means starting at the top – at a residential clinic. Here at Prosperity Haven, we offer top-tier care in our residential treatment programs. But what exactly does that entail?
An Effective First-Line Treatment for Substance Abuse
While is it classified as a brain disease, drug addiction does not have a straightforward treatment. Very few forms of medication exist to effectively combat cravings or withdrawal issues, with only a handful of antagonist drugs and effective aids for withdrawal in cases of opioid addiction. And for those who do not find these drugs to help, the path forward is often one dominated by psychiatric help, using individual talk therapy and group therapy.
As such, the main focus in the early days of recovery is to separate an addict from their drug habit. From there, the healing can begin. Because it is so crucial to effectively eliminate the risk of relapse in the first few weeks of recovery, residential treatment is still considered the first line treatment for addiction. Other options do exist but are ill-advised. It is not recommended to do an outpatient program or try to address an addiction problem on your own, due to the risk of relapse. If addiction were a matter of willpower, this would be a different issue, but addiction is a deep-seated physical dependence on a substance that further deepens such dependence and requires months of abstinence to reverse.
Residential treatment programs are only as effective as they are appealing. One of the major points of early recovery is to help find a way for a recovering addict to rediscover the joy and passion of living, and wholeheartedly embrace sobriety not as a punishment for past sins, but as a reinvigorated and overall enhanced way of life. Recovery is only effective when it comes from a place of compassion and joy, not from a place of shame and guilt.
Why Choose Prosperity Haven?
Here at Prosperity Haven, our residential treatment programs focus on providing patients with a high-quality recovery experience; with chef-prepared meals, housekeeping services, several means of communication to stay connected with the outside world, common areas for patients to interact and spend time together, occasional mobile access, and evidence-based addiction treatments.
We also understand that addiction often runs concurrent with other mental health issues, often as a result of the drug use, and sometimes as a cause for the drug use. Addressing these issues is paramount to lasting recovery, and we aim to equip our patients with the necessary tools to adapt to the challenges of recovery, whatever their circumstances may be.
