Substance abuse treatment entails learning ways of changing one’s lifestyle, learning not to depend on the substance of abuse, and learning new coping mechanisms for the future. Due to the fact that substance abuse treatment is a preparation for the life-long goal of sobriety we provide maintenance programs to ensure you have support throughout the rest of your life. These substance abuse treatment programs include sober living homes, AA meeting, ongoing counseling, group therapy, and alumni programs.
Achieving addiction recovery is one of the most difficult things one can undergo but at the same time it is the most rewarding achievements in an addict’s life. The addiction recovery process requires a lot of strength and courage as you face your fears and embrace change. This is the beginning of a lifelong journey which starts with the attainment of sobriety.
Your choice to undergo Summit rehab treatment does not mean that you are not experiencing fear, but rather that you have chosen to face your fears so as to beat the addiction. We begin your addiction treatment by helping increase your self-esteem and confidence. Once you have accepted that you are in need of help, you will feel the courage and determination you need to face the fears you feel and make the changes you need in your journey down the road to recovery.
Addiction and shame go hand in hand, and alcoholics and drug addicts tend to undergo this shame which they strive to escape due to the pain and personal emotion that comes with it. Addicts experience this great urge to escape this feeling of shame even if it is just for a short while. The need to escape this feeling of shame leads to the addiction-shame cycle. When an addict experiences that feeling of shame, he or she will turn to drugs or alcohol to relieve this feeling, which in turns leads to the addictive behavior. Then turning to drugs leads to shame which then begins the cycle once more.
The Summit treatment centers are by your side every step of the way as you journey through the road to recovery. We are there to ensure that you overcome obstacles you may encounter along the way.
