Effective Addiction Treatment

Inspirational Residential Treatment Center in Palm Springs

Ascension’s staff has several decades of experience helping people get clean and chart a new path to fulfillment and serenity.  Residential addiction treatment is the most effective way for someone struggling with an addiction to get the help they need.

Addiction is a disease that can cause a lot of pain and heartache for both the user and their friends and family. It can be difficult to cease using the drug on your own due to physical and mental dependencies. Some drugs have serious withdrawal symptoms that are too dangerous to attempt to withdrawal from without clinical supervision.
People in early sobriety also benefit from the safety and support of experienced professionals who can help guide them on their way to a new way of life. In residential treatment at Ascension, you will learn new tools and behaviors to help you thrive on a healing journey of recovery. You also have the benefit of being in a group of empathetic peers who understand what you’re going through.

Who Can Benefit from Residential Treatment?

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiciton, and have been unable to stop on your own, then you would probably benefit from residential addiction treatment.

Many people who abuse substances also have co-existing disorders such as depression or anxiety.  Our inclusive and specialized treatment center is experienced in working with people who have been dual diagnosed. We tailor our treatment plans to the individual and their personal challenges, helping them get clean and start a path to recovery in a supportive and caring environment.

Detoxification Prior to Treatment

Usually, prior to entering residential treatment, our clients will undergo a period of detoxification at our clinical facility. Detox can often be physically and emotionally stressful as you rid your body of toxins and begin to have emotions that the drugs suppressed. Detox can feel overwhelming, which is why it’s important to go through the process in a safe, supportive environment where somebody is always available to monitor your progress and make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

Why Residential Addiction Treatment?

Most people who abuse drugs or alcohol require more than just a removal of their drug of choice to move on and be truly free from the pain of addiction. Addiction is a disease, and it’s hard to quit using for the long haul without professional help. Many of our clients come to us with a history of trying to get and stay sober  on their own, and ultimately giving up because of the difficulties they face.

A residential addiction treatment program is recommended to help you get and stay sober while moving forward and getting tools to actually thrive in the process. The therapy and support you receive in this environment can help you prepare for your return to everyday life.

Time spent in treatment gives the recovering person the right to step away from the everyday stresses, giving you “breathing room” to examine your triggers and explore your other struggles in a safe, inclusive environment. During this time in treatment, you will learn more about yourself, your personality and why you do the things you do. You’ll be able to create a roadmap to different choices and behavior, giving you the tools and support you need to cope with life without the use of drugs or alcohol.

Residential treatment is a structured environment that includes one-on-one therapy and assistance with co-occurring disorders such as depression or anxiety. Therapy is not a one-size-fits all; we offer personalized, holistic treatment plans that take your lifestyle, values and personal background into consideration. We work to help you become one of our success stories and give you tools that you can use throughout life as a sober person thriving in recovery.

Therapy isn’t just for the person in treatment; we work with loved ones and family to make the transition to a new way of life easier for them, too. Family therapy is often a part of the treatment plan at Ascension. Once you are done with your residential treatment, we offer aftercare assistance such as sober homes as well as referrals to resources within the community.

How Do I (or My Loved One) Get Started with Residential Addiction Treatment?

Reaching out for help when you think you have an alcohol or drug problem can be one of the most difficult decisions to make, but you’re not alone. Many struggling individuals have walked through our doors out of fear and desperation, but found hope and renewal through the safety and support of our programs.

Treatment isn’t just about stopping the drug use, it’s also about reclaiming your life and forgiving yourself. Much of treatment is spent rediscovering who you are and who you want to be. In treatment, we want you to have success in all facets of recovery, and we want to provide the environment and resources to find that success.

The first step is the hardest, but you deserve to break free of the grip of addiction. You don’t have to do it alone.
