When you come to Recovery Guild the first thing we’ll do is try to make you comfortable. Depending on what’s going on with you and what addiction you’re suffering from, that could include anything from a medication to a cup of herbal tea.
Then, we’ll begin to work with you to formulate the drug addiction treatment program that will best address your situation and needs. We will start by getting a lot of information on how you came to become addicted, what the level of your addiction is, what the root causes might be, if there are any extenuating circumstances, an earlier trauma, or other condition that contributes to the addiction. And we will begin to answer each and every one of these with the appropriate treatment or therapy.
We’ll help you understand the impact of the addiction on your brain, your body and your life. We’ll discuss the treatment options and you will be a part of working on your program to make sure you’re actively involved in working that program and getting better.
Treatment for Drug Addiction that Works
At Recovery Guild, we set attainable goals for those who come here. This place has a rich, long history of success in helping those who have come here to beat addiction and chemical dependency.
As one of the oldest drug and alcohol rehabs in Los Angeles, we can tell you much has changed in the treatment for drug addiction. The drugs themselves are harder, harsher, more destructive than they were when this place was first created in the 1970’s. The treatments have likewise become more sophisticated, more clinical, with medication playing an ever increasing role, especially in the treatment of opioid addiction.
Drug addiction has now become an epidemic in this country. There’s more focus on from an institutional and even governmental level than ever before. New therapies and modalities of treatment are constantly being created and evaluated and, when they are, we will be at the forefront of using them.
Effective Addiction Treatment for Drugs is a Team Effort
When we say that, we don’t just mean our clinical team. We also mean you. You have to be every bit as involved in your treatment as you were involved in becoming and being an addicted. It’s the only way drug addiction treatment works.
Too often people go to treatment and put forth minimal effort. What they get in return is minimal results. If this is your expectation, don’t come here. You’re only wasting your time and ours, when we could be helping someone who truly wants to get better, who truly wants to reclaim his, or her, life.
Recovery isn’t just 30 days of treatment. It’s a lifelong commitment to invest in yourself. You’ll need to learn the skills that make your life better and keep you on your path. It often isn’t easy. And the question you have to ask yourself is, are you worth it? The answer has to be yes. Call us and let’s get started.
