Drug Addiction Treatment Program
Drug addiction can have devastating effects on the user, his family, friends and business associates. Drug addiction is endemic in our society, touching people from all socio-economic walks of life, from the mailroom to the boardroom. And while the substance of choice varies, the consequences of drug addiction are usually predictable.
The common physical hazards of drug addiction include heart attack, respiratory failure, organ damage, hepatitis, stroke, seizure, and bizarre and violent behavior, often as the result of paranoid psychosis. Of course, the most serious – and final — potential outcome of drug addiction is death.
The personal impact of drug addiction is equally devastating: financial ruin, loss of employment, legal entanglements, family trauma, shattered relationships, depression and hopelessness.
If you or a loved one is suffering the ravages of drug addiction, help is available. Renaissance Malibu’s exclusive drug addiction treatment center offers care that is personalized, confidential and effective. Our goal for every client dealing with drug addiction is to enjoy a happy, productive, drug-free lifetime.
Choosing the Right Drug Addiction Treatment Program
Renaissance Malibu’s world-class drug addiction treatment program employs innovative holistic techniques designed to meet the individual needs and issues of our clients. A multi-disciplinary clinical team of certified and licensed drug addiction rehab counselors, supported by a dedicated and caring staff, provides state-of-the-art drug addiction treatment.
The foundation for our drug addiction treatment program is built upon two main objectives: giving individuals the self-knowledge and confidence to regain their lives without the use of drugs; and providing the therapeutic tools for continued long-term recovery. In order to attain these objectives, Renaissance Malibu’s drug addiction treatment program includes individual counseling, group therapy, education, family treatment, relapse prevention tools, and aftercare.
Now Is the Time
Chronic drug addiction is a progressive condition that will worsen unless treated. It is an enormous first step for an individual to finally summon the courage to seek drug addiction treatment. However, the reality is that some individuals in the throes of drug addiction cannot, or will not, seek help.
If you feel that a friend, associate, or loved one requires the services of a comprehensive drug addiction treatment program, but he or she is in a state of strong denial, an intervention may be the only way to get them the help they so desperately need.
An intervention is a pre-arranged gathering, without the prior knowledge of the individual needing help. An intervention ‘group’ includes those who are no longer willing to stand by and let the problem continue. In lovingly confronting a loved one about his or her drug addiction, denial or unwillingness may be broken and the decision to finally seek treatment can be agreed upon. Sometimes, if the denial is very strong, the intervention group has the loved one’s bags packed in advance and tells them they are physically taking the individual to the treatment center.
Our Addiction Treatment Process
Detoxification is sometimes the first step in a drug addiction treatment program, whereby our licensed physicians monitor a gentle process that allows the body to rid itself of the drug and its residues. Withdrawal symptoms from drug addiction vary but can include: depression, fatigue, vivid nightmares, agitation, restlessness and increased appetite. Depending upon the individual, some medication may be prescribed to alleviate these symptoms.
As the body is cleansed of drug residue, the mind becomes clearer and more focused so that the process of recovery can begin. Experts believe that 50% of addicts have a co-existing mental disorder (particularly depression and ADD), and that relapse rates are dramatically reduced when these conditions are treated appropriately. Renaissance Malibu’s rehab program treats these and other conditions, addressing the entire individual — Mind, Body, Spirit, and Relationships – to give every client the best chance possible to resume their lives drug-free.
