Deciding on Treatment
Consulting Services: Deciding on Treatment While addiction may be glaringly apparent to friends and loved ones, those facing addiction are often blind to its symptoms and effects. With our Christian Intervention Service, we guide addicted individuals and their families through the treatment process, from intervention and admission to rehabilitation and aftercare. The first step—and often the most difficult one—is identifying the addiction and deciding to seek help. When an individual or their loved ones become aware of a substance abuse problem, they are at a crossroads. Either they can take a step toward rehabilitation or they can choose to live in denial. It is tempting to try to resolve addiction on your own, but it is unwise to do so. Substance abuse destroys relationships, finances, health, and more—but our Christian Intervention consultants provide you with the tools you need to break free from addiction. Why Should I Invest in Addiction Treatment? Addiction treatment ranges in cost, depending upon program features and facility amenities, but addiction, itself, is far more costly. When you decide to get help for chemical dependency or other addictions, you’ll never regret the investment. Substance abuse treatment programs can literally save your life and alter its course: first by removing you from the people and places that trigger your addiction. When you find a treatment program that suits you, you’ll have the opportunity to heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Then, a Christian consultants will customize a management plan that keeps you accountable and on track. Our team works with addicts of all ages and walks of life, and there is no substitute for the expertise we provide. Addiction Treatment Options Once you’ve taken the first step toward getting help, the Christian Intervention Team educates you about long- and short-term programs, along with residential, outpatient, and post-rehab accountability options. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to Christian addiction rehabilitation. Instead, we create an individualized addiction treatment plan based upon your environmental, behavioral, relational, and medical factors. Addiction is a complex brain disease. In some cases, the addicted individual must remove themselves from everyday life to manage withdrawal symptoms, reprogram the brain, and focus on healing and restoration. In cases where clients suffer from co-occurring illnesses such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), patients require integrated therapies to treat both substance abuse and mental illness. Your intervention consultant can guide you through each option and help you select programs that give you the best chances of post-recovery success.
