Why Our Couples Program Works

Couples Rehab Program That Works - Image

Couples Rehab is located in the beautiful sunshine state of California. Our Couples addiction treatment program is quickly gaining popularity throughout southern California. Although many addiction treatment centers are now offering a couples program track, most of them do not allow couples to recover together at the same facility. That is not the case with our popular couples addiction treatment program. Our team believes that recovering together as a couple will better our clients chances at lasting sobriety. Our couples program has increased so much in popularity that it has caught the attention of the national news network, CNN. Our program was recently featured on CNN’s LoveStory series. The episode follows a young couple through the beginning of their recovery journey from opiate addiction. Viewers get a glimpse of what early recovery looks like by watching the couple attend therapy sessions, community events, and a variety of meetings. This feature allows people to see the positive impact that a couple’s love and support for one another has on their recovery from addiction.

America is truly in a crisis amidst the opioid epidemic. The number of people suffering from an opiate/opioid addiction in America is astonishing. Things have gotten so bad that our president declared the opioid epidemic a national public health emergency last year. America has finally recognized just how dire the situation has actually become. Opioid use now kills more than 100 Americans each and every day. Between the overprescribing of opioid containing pain medications by doctors, and the greedy pharmaceutical companies who are aggressively pushing their products, is it the perfect storm for disaster. No wonder we are in the middle of a crisis. Unfortunately if our country does not make some drastic changes soon the opioid addiction problem will just continue to grow exponentially.

This epidemic has led to more and more couples finding themselves struggling with an active opioid addiction. There are many addiction treatment centers throughout the county but very few of them will allow a couple to recover together at the same facility. In fact, many facilities won’t even allow both partners of the couple attend at the same time. It was previously an industry standard that couples be separated during their time at an addiction treatment center. The was advised so that an individual’s recovery was not affected or dependant on their partners sobriety, or lack thereof.

The views on this are changing and Couples Rehab Treatment Center is proud to provide one of the first programs where couples are allowed to recover together. We believe there is no separation necessary for a couple to achieve sobriety. We have found that allowing couples to heal and grow together through addiction treatment increases their chances for successful and long term recovery. The support system that a relationship provides is an effective tool for recovery. Of course this is only true if both partners of the couple adopt new and healthy habits together.

Much of our client’s success in our couples therapy program is from the implementation of our innovative take on couples behavioral therapy (CBT). We have tailored our couples program to specifically help couples who are looking to attend drug and alcohol addiction treatment together. This means attending meetings, therapy, and community events together as a unit; in addition to some individual sessions too. We created our program to focus on individual recovery as well as growing and rebuilding the romantic relationship. During CBT couples will learn how to provide support to one another through the tough times in hopes to help prevent relapse. Our clients will identify and work through other issues besides addiction that have harmed their relationship. While working through these issues the couple will be able to recognize and correct any enabling or codependent behavior that is present. Once both partners have healed individually and together as a couple, their relationship will become a positive influence on keeping their new found sobriety long lasting.

Couples Recovery with Family Involved Therapy

You both can enjoy getting your lives back on track with our treatment facility’s couples’ recovery program. We tend to think of addiction recovery as a solitary maneuver with a group of strangers and professionals. However, our ways to help you recover and to be the person you want to be, have changed from yesterday’s traditional approach to an atmosphere of familiarity. Struggling with addiction alone can leave you feeling hopeless and defeated. That’s why we have opened up our center to treating not only the individual but also those who may be going through addiction with you.

As you walk forward with your significant other during recovery, you will find that they may desire the same replacement for addiction as you do, and you may also learn that their weaknesses are your strengths, which make you a great team for recovery!

 

 

Overcoming an addiction alone may feel like an insurmountable task. The one struggling along the side of you may be the only one who completely understands the hardship you face. Does success seem possible if you could recover with that one that you love and trust? Drug and alcohol abuse can leave you feeling very isolated and scared. You do not have to take these steps alone. Recovery from alcohol and drug addiction can benefit you just as just as much as it can provide recovery and healing for those you love. We want you to experience the benefit of recovery with a loved one.
Addiction is hard for every person at any age. It is a subtle darkness that envelops more than just one person before knowing what happened. In most cases, drugs and alcohol begin as a social or medical association. Before long, addiction is blinding and binding. It comes with no rhyme or reason, though it may come with hidden triggers. What is an addiction? It is an escape from reality. It can be a way to overcome your insecurities. The reality of addiction is that it is a trap, bondage, and a heavy chain. Stepping outside of the darkness that veils the truth of drug or alcohol abuse can be similar to finding a previous wound that never healed. You wonder suddenly what the cause of it was, and you question how did it ever get so bad? Whether the addiction forms in a gradual state or rapid succession, there is no doubt of the wounds they will cause. People suffering from addiction come from all walks of life: all backgrounds, all races, all over the world. There is no one immune to having a dependence on drugs or alcohol. What a person does have control over is deciding to end the cycle that can destroy lives.

 

Statistically, 1 in 5 individuals in a recovery program is likely to succeed. That is only 20% of the population who is trying to gain their life back from drugs or alcohol. Those between the ages of 25 and 49 have the highest rate of admission into a treatment facility. Addiction affects millions more, either personally or by relation. Those brave enough to get help are usually ushered through a program without attention to the greater healing aspects of emotional repair and salvaging damaged relationships. Programs will offer the needed group support, counseling, and facility to protect you during your most vulnerable time, but is it enough? According to American Addiction Centers, only about 10% of those who need rehabilitation from drugs are receiving the treatment that will help them. That leaves 90% who have not received help. Without help, their spiral of addiction continues.

Relapse can often send even the most determined individual into a state of discouragement and even depression. It leads to an attitude of despondency or even hopelessness because the goal now seems unattainable. Recovery takes work and getting back up after a relapse can seem pointless. Reverting to a harmful lifestyle, even once, will have an adverse reaction from those who were skeptical about your plan to succeed. The statistics involved around relapse are tricky, however, because certain variables are used to attain them. Rock bottom must happen before you want recovery, and your recovery depends on your purpose to achieve the life you want. It can happen!

You may be wondering how the average solitary recovery program works. In most cases, trying to recover with the basic tools given to you by a treatment facility leaves you with questions and little to no accountability. Not having someone to talk out your sessions with makes getting answers more difficult than if you were able to discuss sensitive matters with someone you intimately trust freely. Some things are not easy to talk about when it comes to addiction, especially when you are talking with someone you have met only for a few hours. Sharing your burdens with your partner in addiction recovery may potentially aid you in speaking with a counselor at the treatment center and further your progress. Recovering alone can also stimulate relapse. Having someone to guide you through temptations that will hinder you from reaching your goals will help you beat addiction. Doing this alongside a person who will help you remember the importance of the fight and help you navigate those hard turns in the road.

At our treatment facility, we want to offer you the assistance that will be most beneficial to your recovery: a partnering addict. It could be a spouse or a significant other. Couples in recovery have a larger recovery rate than any solitary program in the country. Why is that? With your partner, you will receive tools to help you reach healthy goals, a plan to focus your recreation time toward more productive to recovery, constructively give reasonable guidelines for success, and you will receive accountability by someone who supports your decision. Your loved one will be more than a valuable sponsor to you: they are someone who is willing to go through the battle with you unconditionally. Those in your life who have seen your toughest moments will be encouraged to watch you grow and meet milestones in your recovery: all while cheering you on the right by your side. Together you will focus on your healing first, but before long the relationship between you that was once suffering and revolving around strongholds will begin to be restored. Recovering with the background of a strong personal relationship transitions recovery from the individual effort to a team effort, and it balances out the burden you feel. Attending therapy with your spouse may improve your relationship. What was damaged by mistrust or hurtful words or actions, can begin to repair in a controlled setting. Therapy sessions attended together will grant both parties a chance to connect. It will give you both an avenue to bring pleasure to your relationship once again out of a place of deep pain. Instead of putting the focus on the problem, which enabled the addiction, we like to emphasize the potential of the right direction. Dealing with the addiction together facilitates an atmosphere of understanding and working together for the greater cause. Consider the time you will spend in therapy with your loved one. It will not just be a time of helping your loved one through the challenges of addiction, but you will also be counseled to be the best asset. You will answer pointed questions, but they are not meant to harm. In fact, you may be surprised at the insight they will provide to help you more appropriately respond to symptoms and behaviors related to addictions.

Recovery is just as important for the overcoming individual as it is for your sidekick who wants to see you well again. Your greatest support system is found closest to you: a close friend or partner in a relationship that desires to succeed with you. Why not give the one close in heart to you the chance to change for the better? Your success is very important to the ones who love you and taking the time to recover as a couple is an opportunity to take charge in healing.
Family involved therapy is another opportunity we provide to our clients who want to beat addiction. Can recovery happen when an individual puts his mind to it? Emphatically, yes! Consider how much encouragement boosts confidence. It’s time to overcome the snares of addiction, and you can be the added strength for those in your tribe who need help as not to fight alone.

Given the mainstream pop culture in society today, we can understand the negative influences that pressure America’s youth into a lifestyle of addiction. Glamorizing drug or alcohol use is frequently seen by those idolized by teenagers. When a parent sees a young person through the ups and downs of any addiction, their chief concern is doing all possible to help facilitate a full life of happiness once again. At our centers, we can constructively guide what may seem a tense and uncomfortable situation of heartache into a sensitive design to help your closest relationships restore. Parents attending recovery with a child they love can be viewed as help thanks to the preparation and training of our mentors and counselors.
Watching a parent or parental figure in your life battle with addiction can be just as painful. Consider attending treatment sessions with your parent and letting them know you unconditionally love them and support their need to be independent of the chains of addiction. Reassuring the ones who care the most for you makes recovery very productive and worth the fight.

Fighting the giant of addiction can be overwhelming. Even in a program that offers 24-hour support, sponsors, and hotlines, you can begin to feel alone in high-pressure moments. Trying to change your daily routine to separate from harmful influences would be more manageable having someone else to lean on. Addiction is an enormous villain that can steal away the happiness from life. The uphill battle can be tough when you grow weary. Gentle support from your companion will greatly enhance not only your recovery time but also your resolve to get well. The theory of replacement can act as a rewarding agent to both parties in recovery. For the most fruitful recovery process, you must realize the need to introduce some positive activities into your life where you once may have abused drugs or alcohol. Filling in the time gaps, or altering your daily routine for the better will avert cravings or triggers associated with relapse. Your partner in therapy can not only help you with tools in overcoming your addiction but also participate with you to continue encouraging your commitment to do right.

Bringing someone through recovery with you gives you a sense of ease. The mountain does not look as big when someone is willing to climb it with you. Those who seek help with a companion find it is more helpful to recovering and completing treatment, and even essential to success, versus going through an addition program alone. Whether you are the person seeking help, one who is encouraged to fight addiction’s battle, or whether you are a supportive spouse or family member, we welcome you to take a chance on improving your lifestyle as a whole. Give us a call to find out more of our benefits as we work with families on the road to recovery.

Couples therapy is an amazing way to support someone you care for deeply. Building trust takes a long time to repair once broken; however attending treatment together can bring a fuller understanding to each party. Differences may be resolved, misgivings about truthfulness during a therapy session will be removed, and truth can safely and freely move about the room.

Inpatient Drug Rehab For Couples

Rehabs That Accept Couples

Looking for an inpatient drug rehab for couples that offers detox and treatment? When it comes to detox of the body, whether it is a drug or alcohol, there are many ways to get rid of the substance. Some are natural, some are purely medical, but all have their benefits. That said, detoxification can be performed many ways. Some are more effective than others, some are more gradual, and some may not be ideal for curing an addiction. A couples therapy program is ideal for couples in which both individuals are suffering from alcohol or drug addiction. A drug rehab for married couples will offer a quality and effective program to offer both parties the treatment they need to succeed in recovery.

Of course, the first step regardless of what toxin you are attempting to eliminate is to stop ingesting that toxin. This is especially true for any type of poisoning, since you can hardly cure yourself if you keep ingesting the toxin in the first place. Of course, it’s not as easy as all that. You may need help to get off of a certain substance, but that’s a topic for another time. Our couples drug detox program helps couples safely detox by supervised care during the process.

Inpatient Drug Rehab for Couples

Believe it or not, stress is a big hindrance to detox operations. The release of those hormones serves many purposes, but cleansing the body is not one of them. In fact, those stress hormones directly hinder the body’s natural cleansing processes, so if you’re going to go about a detox effort, try to do it with a stress free mind. Inpatient drug rehab for couples specialize in offering a stress free environment so couples can work on recovery.

But none of that is the nitty gritty of the business. When it comes to extremely serious addictions, medical treatment and professional care is the name of the game. Sure you could fast on nothing but water and juice for a few days, but that’s detox on a level that isn’t going to curb a heavy alcohol or drug addiction.

Alcohol Rehab for Couples

That said, we’ll start with alcohol detox for couples. This is a period of time in which medical professionals oversee the patient to ensure they stay safe during the withdrawal phase of eliminating alcohol from the game. It may include medication to mitigate the severity of withdrawal symptoms. It is extremely important to ensure that this process is undertaken by professionals. Alcohol withdrawal syndrome is extremely serious and potentially life-threatening, and is the prime reason why an individual should never attempt to detox themselves from a heavy alcohol addiction on their own.

Drug Treatment Centers for Couples

Drug detoxification is pretty similar to alcohol detox. It’s all about gradual recovery under the watchful eye of medical professionals. Depending on the drug in question it may include medication, but one way or another it will include a withdrawal period, in which the medical professionals will oversee the patient to ensure that they are safe. Experienced drug treatment centers for couples understand the process to medically detox couples from drugs safely.

There are several programs for detoxification available for couples, all of which aim to get the job done regardless of procedure. Knowing which program is right for you or a loved one is up to your own discretion. Be sure to discuss the merits of every program with your medical professional before making a decision, and you’ll do just fine. Keep in mind that regardless of which inpatient drug rehab for couples program is selected, they all bear the same general aspects: there will be a withdrawal period and medical observation: accepting that is the most important step to getting on the road to recovery.

Can Couples Go to Rehab Together

The road to curing an addiction is long and arduous, but it is far from impossible, and there are laid out steps to take to get it done. Knowing is half the battle, so knowing those steps is in fact the first step to curing any addiction. Married couples who are addicted to alcohol and/or drugs often have a difficult time locating a treatment center that will help both parties recover from substance abuse. Our Couples Rehab website offers resources for couples who need to enter a recovery program together.

The actual goal of “curing” a drug addiction is to put an end to the drug addiction, to continue staying free of that addiction, and to become productive members of society and their families. But what is the process for doing that?

First up is detoxification, AKA, ridding the body of the addictive substance. This is usually one of the hardest steps for people to get through, because it means completely cutting off a substance the body has become accustomed to. There are many ways to go about detox, some natural and some not, but so long as the method you choose gets rid of the substance. However, medical detoxification from an inpatient drug rehab for couples from professionals is probably the most effective step, since it targets the acute psychological effects of withdrawal.

After that is couples behavioral therapy. This is exactly what it sounds like. Addictions tend to affect the behavioral and psychological patterns of the addicted individual, and these need to be treated to help the patient return to normal. This is one of the most important steps to ensuring that the patient returns to society as a productive individual.

Next up is a step that may or may not be necessary depending on the nature of the original addiction. Medication is something that may be needed if the addiction included opioids, tobacco, or alcohol. That’s because these substances have long-term effects that stay in the body longer than many drugs that only offer short term alterations to the body or mind. With long term adverse effects, medication is usually needed to treat or mitigate them.

An option that is becoming more and more popular is for addicts to get a Naltrexone implant after completing a drug or alcohol program. The implant works to block the receptors that “crave” alcohol, opiates and even meth in some case studies. To find out where to get a Naltrexone implant or the costs of these implants call 1+844-904-6653 and ask about this procedure.

Following that is evaluation and treatment of mental or psychological afflictions that may have occurred alongside or because of the addiction. This can include depression and anxiety, which can be products of the drug or psychological afflictions that spurred it in the first place. Leaving such issues un-dealt with is a surefire way to tempt the patient to return to their old modus operandi and become addicted again. Be sure that an evaluation occurs, and discuss that evaluation with your medical professional to determine what treatments need to take place.

Finally, the last step is the long-term follow up to prevent relapse. This is the most crucial step of them all: even after you deal with everything else, the patient will always have the memories of their addiction. If they come on tough times, they may recall how they dealt with it before, which could lead to possible relapse. This would be the worst case scenario, since it could undo all of the hard work of the previous steps.

The point is, “curing” an addiction is not impossible. It is hard, and it will require work, but there is a plan, and that plan can be followed for success.
