Most often, after they’ve gotten a room and been given a tour of the facility, the new patient will undergo an assessment with one of the lead staff members. This is meant to help the physicians and other staff members understand why the patient is there, what kind of physiological effects the patient may have due to withdrawals, and to let the patient know that everything possible is going to be done to make sure they receive the best care possible. One of the major benefits of checking into an inpatient treatment center is that the staff can observe the patient 24/7 and adjust the needed care accordingly, and this is important because often time addiction comes with co-occurring psychological disorders. It’s this attention to the whole psychological makeup of the individual that makes facilities like inpatient treatment centers different from other conventional rehabilitation programs. The patient may also choose to work some type of 12-step program where they can build a peer support network. This can help them through the therapeutic process and form a sense of community that offers real-world support. It’s one thing to have doctors and therapists tell you that something is wrong. It’s another thing to have your peers express their anxieties and fears to you, and for you to share those same things with them. While in the Residential program, each client has the opportunity to be involved in:

  • Individual therapy with an expert mental health professional
  • Group therapy and support
  • Family therapy (including Intensive Family Weekend)
  • Medication management
  • Educational groups
  • Recreation and expressive therapy
  • 12-Step recovery
  • Relapse prevention and life skills groups
  • Daily contribution to the community
  • Specialty treatment for psychological trauma and other issues as needed

Inpatient programs are best if followed by an outpatient addiction treatment program. Inpatient programs are more involved but are sometimes a much better fit for someone struggling with certain types of addiction. It can depend on the length of their substance misuse as well as their likelihood of relapse. If you would like more information about inpatient programs, we have contacts in with top programs in which we can refer you to.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

  • Where do I even begin. I first want to thank everyone at AFS they truly go above and beyond for their clients. I’ve gone to several detox and outpatient programs and this is the first one i felt loved and appreciated. The program has helped me in so many ways. Gave me tools to live life on life’s terms. I wouldn’t be where i am today without this program.

  • Adjustments Family Services changed my life!! Great food, great staff, wonderful place! Awesome to get to know the amazing clients and see that i was not alone in my recovery. I made friends for life in the short time i got to spend there. Not a better facility anywhere in my opinion!!The team of employees, from the Technicians all the way up to the Owner, all have a patient first mentality.

  • Going to treatment at Adjustments was one of the best programs I've participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and over all good-natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling , case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate to other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced everyday. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
