Alcoholism is a medically recognized illness that affects millions of Americans every year. Even though it is a legal substance it can still wreak havoc on an individual’s life, causing financial, emotional, relational, and spiritual damage, the likes of which are unrivaled.
As if this weren’t enough alcoholism is also an illness that attempts to hide away from the person afflicted. It can cause tremendous denial within the individual, making it almost impossible for them to see that alcohol is the basis for a majority of their problems.
In order an alcoholic to achieve sobriety, they must first overcome this denial and admit that they have an issue with alcohol. Many times this conclusion can only be reached once a person has sought professional assistance with their issues, like that which we offer at our Pasadena, California Alcohol Rehab.
Pasadena Recovery Center Alcohol Rehab Program
At our Pasadena, California Alcohol Rehab we pride ourselves on having a well-rounded program of recovery that can be individualized to meet the needs of all of our clients. We believe that in order to give our clients the best possible chance at recovery, we have to meet them where they are at in life, and focus on the particular issues that they struggle with.
Our Pasadena, California Alcohol Rehab consists of the following components:
12-Step Program Approach
Developed in the 1930s, 12-step programs have become an integral component in many treatment and recovery programs today. While the original program was based on spirituality and religion, modern programs allow the individual to tailor the program to their specific needs and beliefs. A 12-step program is typically characterized by an inner soul-searching and reaching out to others for support and guidance.
At our Pasadena, California Alcohol Rehab, we have taken the traditional 12-step program to the next level, using it as a foundation for our customized treatment programs. Our goal is to provide every patient that walks through our doors the precise tools they need to recover from their alcoholism and move toward a healthy, productive life of sobriety.
Over the past 80 years, the 12 Step model of treatment has proved itself to be a highly effective method of helping individuals achieve long-term sobriety and it also has proven to be the catalyst for tremendous change in people’s lives.
One of the goals of any 12 Step based program is not only to get the individual to maintain their sobriety but also to show them a way of life that will allow them to navigate this oftentimes confusing world. It is no secret that many alcoholics have difficulty with coping with life and that is part of the reason that they continued to use alcohol. With the implementation of the 12 Steps in their life this however no longer is a problem and they are able to deal with whatever life may throw at them.
Daily Treatment Options
To ensure that the precise needs of all of the patients at our Pasadena, California Alcohol Rehab, are met, we offer daily treatment options that are both generalized and specific. Counseling twice a week allows our patients the necessary time to identify the underlying triggers for their alcoholism and lets them work through them in a healthy fashion. Group therapy options, including Anger Management and Grief and Loss Therapy help patients, focus on specific issues in a positive, supportive environment.
We have found that implementing both group and individual therapy methods are beneficial in the recovery process because it allows individuals to work through more personal issues in private, all while receiving support and the ability to relate in a more open environment. A large part of recovery is learning how to relate to others who are also afflicted with alcoholism and group therapy sessions in early recovery encourage this.
Activities for Enjoyment, Relaxation
Recovery isn’t just about hard work, it also needs to include fun, relaxing activities that allow patients to focus on themselves and their recovery. There needs to be some downtime in which they can recharge their batteries and just enjoy themselves and at Pasadena Recovery Center we understand this.
Some of the activities offered at our Pasadena, California Alcohol Rehab include:
- Music therapy
- Nature walks
- Softball league
Personal time is also scheduled into every day, ensuring patients have time to spend on activities they enjoy most. Through education, counseling, activities and time alone, we strive to provide patients the optimal environment for successful treatment and the first step toward a sober life.
