Are Medication and Therapy Included in Detox?
Your time in detox at SJRC may involve both medication and therapy. As with all elements of care, the decision to include medication and/or therapy in your treatment plan during detox will be made after close consideration of your unique needs.
Various prescription medications have proved to be effective at minimizing symptoms of withdrawal from certain addictive substances. If these medications can ease your discomfort and protect your health, they will be included in your treatment plan.
At SJRC we realize that addiction is many times caused by untreated Mental Health Disorders, such as Depression, Anxiety, PTSD and Bipolar Disorder. If you are suffering and need Mental Health evaluation and care, including medication, we have these services available.
Therapy can also be an effective means of managing distress and preparing you for the next phases of your treatment journey. Group therapy can introduce you to the principles of the 12-Step Recovery Model, allow you to form beneficial connections with others who are going through similar experiences, and help you to start to make the lifestyle changes that will support long-term sobriety.
