Seeking out addiction support with Hickory Treatment Centers means working with a team of compassionate medical specialists who put the success of each and every patient above all else. We understand that addiction is a lifelong struggle and strive to help equip your loved ones with the skills and resources needed to maintain sobriety for the rest of their life.
It Begins With Addiction Education
It’s easy to feel the impact addiction has on one’s self, but seeing the damage it causes to those around us proves to be more of a challenge. During group and individual sessions, those battle addiction are able to share and learn about how addiction functions and the power it has to alter various parts of one’s life.
Arming your loved ones with knowledge on substance abuse and addiction makes it easier for them to see that they’re more than the drugs or alcohol they consume. The extra wisdom can even highlight the fact that there is always help and treatment available, creating a light at the end of the tunnel.
Building a Network of Peers and Mental Health Professionals
Therapy is one of the most important parts of addiction treatment programs. Individual sessions provide patients with a chance to uncover the different forces that drive their addiction. Group sessions are a time to share experiences, victories and advice amongst others working towards the same goal. It’s common for relationships made during group therapy sessions to last a lifetime, proving to be a stable source of support for years to come.
Thankfully these networks seem to develop naturally with little effort. When you’re facing a daunting task such as overcoming addiction, it can be much more approachable when you have a group tackling it together. A strong foundation of support also includes different therapists and counselors to assist where friends and family can’t. This vital part of treatment aftercare is often forgotten about but can be used to prevent relapse.
Maintaining a Safe Space During Recovery
Addiction treatment has come a long way over the years and is no longer cast under such a critical light. Thanks to an improved outlook on treatment, more rehab facilities like our own have been able to thrive while providing caring and compassionate programs. Now instead of hospitals, addicted persons can receive treatment on a campus dedicated to creating a home away from home that fosters healing and camaraderie between patients.
At Hickory Treatment Center, access to a safe haven to receive help doesn’t end with a completed program. Understanding that addiction comes with the possibility of relapse, we offer custom treatment and assistance for those who need it to continue their sobriety. Some of our alumni even return to speak with groups and share how they were able to overcome addiction and the hurdles involved.
