Substance use disorders affect about 20.2 million adults in the U.S, according to SAMHSA. Given the large number of people who need help fighting addiction, there are many drug and alcohol rehab centers devoted to treating substance use disorders. Each drug rehab center offers its own unique recovery setting, but choosing Bridges of Hope as your recovery center comes with a number of benefits that contribute to long-lasting recovery.
Here are some of the advantages of recovering at Bridges of Hope…
Join a Supportive Community
Guilt and isolation are common traits shared by those who are in the earliest stages of recovery from addiction. Many individuals feel misunderstood and may also be estranged from friends and relatives due to addiction.
A major benefit to attending drug rehab at Bridges of Hope is that our environment is surrounded by people who are going through the same thing that you are. Your peers at Bridges of Hope are more likely to understand the pain and suffering you may be going through and will share their own stories of failure and success as they relate to addiction and recovery. The moment you step into our treatment center, you’ll find that you have suddenly joined a supportive community that will help guide you through every step of your recovery.
Learn New Tips and Skills
The therapies you receive at Bridges of Hope will teach you how to identify and manage triggers effectively that may previously have led to drug and alcohol misuse. An added benefit to receiving treatment at Bridges of Hope, is being around peers who can share their own tips and skills for staying abstinent, which may not be covered during group therapy sessions.
For instance, your peers may share coping methods that work best for them, such as going for a jog or cooking a gourmet meal when they feel the onset of drug cravings.
Reduce Stress and the Risk for Relapse
Stress is one of the most common triggers of drug and alcohol misuse, reports the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Experiencing stress from time to time is normal, even in a drug rehab environment. But for those in recovery from addiction, stress can lead to serious problems and negative outcomes such as relapse and overdose when not managed properly.
Recovering at Bridges of Hope and our stress free environment gives you an unlimited number of outlets at times you’re feeling stress. You will learn coping techniques and stress management skills while in treatment to reduce stress and triggers that might cause relapse.
Engage in Fun, Sober Activities
Many who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction have forgotten how to enjoy certain activities without being intoxicated or under the influence. Part of recovery is learning how to find joy and pleasure in activities without needing to experience them under the euphoric effects of drugs and alcohol.
Recovering at Bridges of Hope will help you to rediscover or find new interests and activities and teaches you how to spend time with others while maintaining sobriety. Instead of sitting alone in your room at drug rehab, you can bond with others who have walked in your shoes and start having fun again as a sober individual.
Our amenities include full size basketball court, equine therapy, pool, video and board games, and many more fun things to do.
Learn Different Views and Perspectives
Addiction affects each person differently, which means your peers at drug rehab will each have their own unique views, opinions, and perspectives about addiction and recovery. Bridges of Hope offers group counseling and therapy sessions that provide an open forum and encourage participants to discuss their unique experiences.
Even when you’re not in group therapy sessions, you can spend time with peers who may open up to you and share their personal stories about addiction. Many times, listening to others can help you with your own growth and recovery.
Receive 24-Hour Support
Recovering from addiction at Bridges of Hope gives you 24-hour access to peer support at times you may be struggling with negative feelings and frustration. Any time you feel like talking about your addiction or recovery, chances are a behavioral health tech or counselor will be there, willing to listen and offer their support. We also offer amenities and services to accommodate patients who are up late at night and need someone to talk to.
Be Held Accountable
Every patient at Bridges of Hope shares the same goal of achieving a healthier lifestyle and long-term abstinence from drugs and alcohol. Your counselors and peers at Bridges of Hope will hold you accountable for your sobriety and help you stay positive about recovery. The sense of community you gain can prevent you from relapsing since your relapse will likely let down your peers in addition to yourself. Knowing you have a group of supportive peers holding you accountable can motivate you to stay in recovery.
Make New Sober Friends
Sometimes, it’s necessary to lose contact with the people you may have spent time with before going to rehab — especially if those people are negative influences or regularly misuse drugs and alcohol. Spending time with those people after completing a recovery program can lead to relapse if you resume old habits and visit the same hangouts. However, going to inpatient treatment at Bridges of Hope will give you the opportunity to make new friends who are devoted to recovery and sobriety.
Who Can Benefit the Most From Inpatient Drug Rehab at Bridges of Hope?
Medical detox and residential drug rehab programs at Bridges of Hope are ideal for those recovering from severe drug and alcohol dependence and need support while going through withdrawal. Drug and alcohol detox programs can help manage the physical symptoms of withdrawal, but depression, anxiety, and insomnia are common symptoms that can linger past acute symptoms like nausea and vomiting.
Other individuals who may benefit greatly from residential drug rehab are those who lack supportive family members and safe living environments. Residential rehab is also ideal for those who need help coping with triggers and developing new daily routines as sober individuals.
Bridges of Hope offer safe, structured recovery centers in relaxing campus environments. We offer a range of drug rehab programs, including drug detox, residential inpatient, and partial hospitalization programs.
