What is Drug Rehab like at Rising Phoenix Wellness

Are you wondering what drug rehab is like? The unknown can often feel daunting, and the idea of entering a rehabilitation program may seem like a negative step. 

However, for many people struggling with addiction, drug rehab turns out to be a profoundly transformative experience. 

At Rising Phoenix Wellness, we offer a personalized, evidence-based approach to treatment and recovery.

Navigating the Challenges of Addiction

Overcoming drug addiction is one of the most challenging journeys a person can face. The road to sobriety is often long and difficult, filled with setbacks and temptations. Many people feel hopeless, ashamed, or unsure of where to turn for help.

Addiction knows no boundaries – it affects individuals from all walks of life, regardless of socioeconomic status, race, or background. 

Opioids: In the United States alone, the opioid crisis has devastated communities, claiming more than 100,000 lives each year.

Stimulants: Beyond opioids, the abuse of stimulants like cocaine and methamphetamine also remains a pervasive issue, impacting an estimated 5.5 million Americans. 

Prescription Drugs: Prescription drug misuse, including benzodiazepines, is another growing concern, with over 16 million people struggling with this form of substance abuse.

Confronting these diverse addictions requires a multifaceted approach, one that addresses the unique physiological, psychological, and social factors at play. 

With compassionate, evidence-based care, however, recovery is possible. By providing clients with the tools, support, and community they need to navigate these complex challenges, we empower them to break free from the grips of addiction and reclaim their lives.

A Compassionate Approach to Treatment

Our team of experienced clinicians and counselors is dedicated to providing a supportive environment where individuals can begin the journey to lasting sobriety.

Personalized Pathways to Healing

We believe that every person’s path to recovery is unique. That’s why we create a customized treatment plan for each client, drawing from a range of evidence-based therapies and interventions. Our goal is to address the underlying causes of addiction and equip our clients with the tools and skills they need to achieve long-term well-being.

What is a Typical Day of Drug Rehab Like?

At Rising Phoenix Wellness, we believe that a structured, holistic approach to treatment is essential for lasting recovery. Each day at our drug rehab center is filled with a variety of activities and therapies designed to address the multifaceted nature of addiction.

Starting the Day with Intention

A typical day begins with a focus on mindfulness and self-care. Individuals in our care start their mornings with a gentle wake-up, followed by a guided meditation session to help center and ground themselves. They then enjoy a nutritious breakfast to nourish both body and mind.

A Structured, Holistic Approach

Throughout the day, our guests participate in individual counseling sessions, educational workshops on topics like relapse prevention and life skills, and recreational activities such as yoga, exercise, and art therapy. They also attend therapeutic community meetings to connect with their peers and support one another’s recovery journeys.

Balancing Treatment and Reflection

Afternoons and evenings at Rising Phoenix Wellness are equally purposeful. Our residents enjoy nutritious meals, attend support group meetings, and have time for personal reflection and leisure activities. As the day winds down, they participate in an evening routine to prepare for a restful night’s sleep, laying the foundation for continued progress the next day.

By immersing our guests in a comprehensive, evidence-based curriculum that combines clinical interventions, holistic therapies, and a strong sense of community, we empower them to develop the skills and resilience needed for long-term recovery.

The Drug Rehab Process at Rising Phoenix

The journey to recovery at this comprehensive program begins with a thorough intake and assessment process. Our experienced clinical team conducts an in-depth evaluation of each individual’s substance use history and any co-occurring mental health or medical issues. This information is then used to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses their unique needs and goals.

Medical Detoxification (if needed)

For many participants, the first step in the recovery process is safely managing the physical and psychological effects of withdrawal. Our on-site medical detoxification program provides:

  • Safe and comfortable withdrawal management
  • 24/7 medical supervision and support to ensure the safety and comfort of our clients

Residential Treatment

Once the acute phase of detox is complete, individuals transition into our intensive inpatient program. This structured daily schedule may include a wide range of evidence-based therapies, such as:

Individual and group counseling

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an evidence-based approach that rapidly reduces the symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions often co-occurring with substance abuse. Through a series of eye movements and guided imagery, clients can achieve profound shifts in perspective and emotional well-being.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a core component of our clinical approach. CBT helps clients identify and modify the negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to substance abuse. By developing healthier coping mechanisms and decision-making skills, clients are better equipped to maintain sobriety in the long term.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is another key modality utilized in our program. DBT focuses on building skills in emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness – all of which are crucial for navigating the challenges of early recovery.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) empowers clients to identify and build upon their existing strengths and resources. By shifting the focus away from problems and towards solutions, this approach helps foster a greater sense of hope, self-efficacy, and momentum in the recovery process.

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a trauma-informed therapy that helps clients process unresolved physical and emotional pain from past experiences. By addressing the underlying traumas that may have contributed to addiction, clients can find greater healing and resilience.

Family therapy is also a critical part of our residential program. We believe that addressing the systemic factors and relational dynamics that may have enabled or exacerbated addiction is essential for achieving lasting change.

By integrating this diverse array of clinical interventions, we are able to provide comprehensive, holistic care that addresses the multifaceted needs of each individual client.

Holistic Wellness Activities

In addition to the clinical interventions, our clients also engage in a variety of holistic wellness activities designed to nurture the mind, body, and spirit.

Nutrition: Our chefs prepare nutritious, balanced meals to support physical health and energy levels during the recovery process.

Exercise: Daily fitness classes, such as yoga, Pilates, and cardio workouts, help clients improve their overall fitness, boost their mood, and manage stress.

Mindfulness: Meditation, breathwork, and other mindfulness practices provide clients with tools to cultivate inner calm, clarity, and emotional regulation.

Spiritual Exploration: We offer opportunities for clients to explore their spirituality through activities like guided meditation, group discussions, and connection with the local faith community.

Social Connection: Building a supportive network of peers in recovery is vital. We facilitate group outings, community service projects, and other activities to foster meaningful bonds and a sense of belonging.

sing the holistic needs of our clients, we help them develop the comprehensive skills and resources necessary for achieving lasting wellness.

Transition to Outpatient Care

Recognizing that recovery is a lifelong process, this rehab facility provides a gradual step-down in the intensity of care as clients prepare to reintegrate into the community. The focus during this phase is on:

  • Relapse prevention
  • Developing essential life skills to support continued progress

Aftercare and Continuing Support

Comprehensive aftercare planning and support services are also available, which may include:

  • Referrals to sober living housing
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Community-based recovery resources
  • Ongoing check-ins with our clinical team

Our aim is to ensure a seamless transition back into the community and to empower each individual to sustain their progress.

Throughout the entire drug rehab process, our compassionate and experienced staff works closely with participants to address the physical, psychological, and social aspects of addiction. By taking a comprehensive, person-centered approach, we are dedicated to helping our guests achieve lasting healing and wellness.

Therapeutic Approaches

The comprehensive treatment program at Rising Phoenix utilizes a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches to address the complex needs of our clients:

Evidence-based Therapies

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Contingency Management
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

These therapies are facilitated by our highly trained clinicians and are tailored to the specific needs and goals of each individual.

Trauma-Informed Care

Recognizing the strong link between trauma and substance use disorders, Rising Phoenix takes a trauma-informed approach to care. Our staff is extensively trained to create a safe, supportive environment and to employ therapeutic techniques that help clients process and heal from past trauma.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (if applicable)

For some participants, the judicious use of FDA-approved medications can be an important component of their recovery plan. When clinically appropriate, our medical team works closely with clients to incorporate medication-assisted treatment into their comprehensive care plan.

Family Involvement and Support

Addiction is often described as a “family disease,” and we believe that the involvement and support of loved ones can be instrumental to long-term success. The Rising Phoenix program includes family therapy, educational sessions, and opportunities for family members to participate in the recovery process.

By addressing the multifaceted nature of substance use disorders through this diverse range of evidence-based and holistic therapies, we are dedicated to empowering our clients to achieve lasting sobriety and wellness.

Aftercare and Ongoing Support

Recognizing that recovery is a lifelong process, the Rising Phoenix program places a strong emphasis on comprehensive aftercare planning and support services to help our clients maintain their progress.

Aftercare: Navigating the Transition

Transitioning back into the community after intensive treatment can be a vulnerable time for individuals in recovery. Aftercare services are crucial for providing the continued structure, guidance, and support needed to sustain sobriety and prevent relapse.

A Spectrum of Aftercare Services

Upon completion of the residential program, clients at Rising Phoenix have access to a range of aftercare options, including:

  • Outpatient treatment programs
  • Participation in local support groups (e.g., 12-step, SMART Recovery)
  • Referrals to sober living housing
  • Ongoing check-ins and case management with our clinical team

Building a Lifelong Network

We work closely with each client to develop a personalized aftercare plan that connects them with the community-based resources and support networks necessary for long-term wellness. This may include:

  • Identifying and strengthening healthy relationships
  • Accessing vocational, educational, or employment services
  • Engaging in peer-led recovery activities
  • Continuing to address any co-occurring mental health or medical needs

By providing a seamless transition from our residential program to these essential aftercare services, we empower our clients to overcome the challenges of early recovery and maintain the progress they’ve made.
