Substance Abuse Treatment
Today, alcohol and drug dependency are recognized as life-threatening diseases. With the current dialogue around prescription drug abuse at the forefront of health discussions in the United States, the need for addiction treatment has been recognized. With that comes a removal of the stigma once associated with admitting when drug use and drinking has become a problem.
If you or your loved one has developed problematic habits with drugs and drinking, Kingwood Pines Hospital might be the right place to seek out substance abuse treatment. The philosophy at Kingwood Pines Hospital is that chemical dependency is a treatable medical condition. The chemical dependency treatment program is designed to help patients develop the skills necessary for a lifestyle free of alcohol and drugs.
Treatment plans will focus on how to maintain sobriety from alcohol and other illicit drugs and substances throughout daily living situations. Through group counseling and other treatment modalities, patients will learn and practice new coping mechanisms and lifestyle choices as they move away from drug and alcohol abuse toward a healthy life in recovery.
ADULT CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY PROGRAM OPTIONS
Acute detoxification offers 24-hour, medically managed detoxification with emphasis on stabilization and assessment of needs.
Chemical dependency inpatient rehabilitation offers a 24-hour, medically supervised, structured environment to further the stabilization process.
Inpatient addiction treatment may not be necessary for all adults. Chemical dependency services are also offered on an outpatient basis to accommodate the needs of adults stable enough to live at home during treatment. Our chemical dependency intensive outpatient program (CD-IOP) also serves as a step down for patients who still need outpatient drug or alcohol addiction counseling after completing an inpatient program at our treatment facility or another alcohol or drug rehab center.
CD-IOP is available at our treatment center Monday through Friday from 6:00 p.m to 9:00 p.m. A 12-step substance abuse recovery program is also held on Wednesday evenings.
FAMILY PARTICIPATION AND AFTERCARE
As a substance abuse hospital and mental health facility, our approach to chemical dependency treatment views discharge planning as a crucial component to the patient’s success. Meetings are held with family, significant others and, if appropriate, employers to strengthen patients on their road to recovery after alcohol and drug rehabilitation. These support groups and family therapy sessions are vital to creating an environment where adults can maintain sobriety long term once rehab is over.
