When you seek recovery from drugs or drinking through a Raleigh rehabilitation facility, you are on the right track to sobriety. First, you know you need treatment for addiction. However, will you get the best treatment in Raleigh? Consider your options fully for your best chance of lasting recovery.

Making the Right Decision for Your Future

Deciding to enter addiction treatment with substance abuse programs is a brave step for your future. However, is local Raleigh rehabilitation treatment your best, boldest choice for lasting recovery?

First, consider your goals for rehab:

  • Lasting recovery
  • Support
  • Life skills development
  • Addiction education
  • Relapse prevention
  • Co-occurring condition treatment
  • Health and wellness

Do you believe all of these goals are achievable in a Raleigh rehabilitation program? Why limit yourself to one region, when top-quality treatment may not be nearby? Many people travel to rehab treatment today to get the most of their rehab experience. You should consider doing the same, for a real chance for lasting recovery.

Benefits of Treatment Beyond Raleigh Rehabilitation Facilities

Look beyond Raleigh and consider other options for your treatment. Your eyes will open to the wide variety of programs available in the United States and the benefits they offer. Some of these programs are very close to Raleigh, so travel is not much further than you intended in the first place. A good example is Crest View Recovery Center in Asheville, North Carolina.

Crest View Recovery Center is in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. At CVRC, you gain benefits of traveling to rehab, including:

Distance from Triggers and Temptations

Away from home, you don’t suffer from home stressors, triggers, and temptations. You enjoy distance from your substance abuse network of friends, dealers or venues. Moreover, you have safety from all of these and focus only on your treatment.

At Crest View Recovery Center, this distance includes the safety of being in rehab treatment in a peaceful, uplifting environment. In Asheville, you don’t have drug or alcohol contacts, while nagging temptations are left at home.

Greater Privacy in Treatment

Start your recovery in Asheville with a clean slate. This fresh start means no one knows who you are or shares contacts in your social or work life. If you want privacy, traveling to rehab is your best choice. You then decide when you want your friends and contacts to know about your experience, if at all.

Greater Likelihood of Program Completion

In Asheville, your friends and family can’t whisk you away from treatment when the going gets tough. You don’t know your way around the community and escaping from treatment is made more difficult. This may sound silly at face value. However, if you really want recovery and know your risk leaving treatment early, being out-of-town for rehab is an excellent advantage.

A Fresh Start

Being in a new, fresh location provides you a fresh outlook. New places and people are energizing, whereas your home region can drag you down. The memories of substance abuse can negatively affect your treatment, so it’s imperative to look for unique programs in recovery away from home.

At Crest View Recovery Center, your fresh start includes living among peers in recovery. You’ll gain new, supportive relationships from these peers in your women’s alcohol rehab or men’s alcohol rehab program. Additionally, these are friendships you can rely on for the rest of your life, and some you will treasure as you learn and grow together.

Your fresh start at Crest View Recovery Center includes learning life skills, relapse prevention, and coping methods. Furthermore, you’ll enjoy better nutrition and wellness during and after rehab at CVRC.

Detoxification

Once an individual suffering from substance addiction is placed into a rehabilitation center, the first step to recovery will be a process called detoxification. Detoxification is the medical process of slowly weaning an addicted individual off of the substance they have been abusing. Over time, this process eliminates drugs or alcohol from the patient’s body.

During this process, the patient will experience physical and mental symptoms called “withdrawal symptoms.” The symptoms can be very painful and include things like increased heart rates, profusely sweating and even seizures in some cases. Once this process has been completed, the treated patient will be transferred over to a rehabilitation facility to begin professionally recommended treatments for their addiction disorders.

Here at CRVC, we never recommend individuals to try to detox by themselves at home. We are partnered with a detoxification facility that will offer the recommended length of stay and will oversee each stage of the process to ensure detoxification completion. 

Inpatient Treatment

Residential inpatient treatment is the highest level of treatment available, and it is what people typically associate with the word “rehab.” This type of care is recommended to anyone with a more severe addiction problem, and patients will spend long lengths of time in a treatment facility. Medical professionals monitor them around the clock to ensure their safety, as well.

There are a lot of instances when residential rehab is a better fit. If a person has a history of relapsing easily after completing time in rehab, inpatient rehab is probably a better option. Treatment in inpatient facilities is intensive enough for these individuals because they require constant supervision in order to not fall back into old patterns. It is also a great option for people who face constant temptation in their everyday lives like living with roommates or family members who also abuse the substance.

Outpatient Treatment

There are two main types of outpatient rehab: general outpatient and intensive outpatient. When someone is admitted into general outpatient rehab, this means they still have flexibility within their schedule. They are able to time their counseling sessions and attend their meetings around their already existent outside activities. As opposed to inpatient facilities that have around the clock care, outpatient intensive rehab facilities are similar but focus more on mild addictions that can be treated over a longer period of time.

Most of the rehabilitation process is through support groups and counseling. The attendee will go about their regular day-to-day life while still going to counseling or group meetings 3 days a week. Most outpatient programs require around 4-6 of therapy as well as checking in with counselors on a regular basis.

At Crest View, we believe outpatient rehab is a great alternative to inpatient for individuals who want to maintain their daily routine or have to hold a job to support their family or want to stay in school so they can achieve their degree. It is also a great way to continue therapy once inpatient treatment is completed. Outpatient treatment is much less costly than that of inpatient intensive treatment because it does not require the patient to live on the premises of where the rehabilitation is taking place.

Although it is very beneficial for some individuals, there are a lot of instances when outpatient rehab is not the best fit for someone looking to be treated for their addiction. If a person has a history of relapsing easily after completing time in rehab, outpatient treatment is probably not a sufficient option. Treatment is not intensive enough for these individuals because they require constant supervision in order to not fall back into old patterns.

Available Treatments at CRVC

Our team at CRVC believes in encouraging our patients to be self-sufficient, independent individuals by the time rehab has been completed. Some of our therapies included are:

Family Counseling Programs: in these programs, family members are brought in to help both the patient and relative understand a better way to cope with recovery. Both parties are able to share thoughts and feelings on the subject, and the program helps to bond one another closer together. This shows the recovering addict they have a long-lasting support system after rehab completion.

Individual Therapy: This therapy allows the patient to talk solely with their therapist about things they may not feel comfortable sharing among others. This oftentimes helps patients to process the emotional side of past situations that ultimately may have helped lead them to their addiction.

Group Therapy: This is another term for a group meeting setting. Primarily verbal to allow patients to interact with one another and share stories of their recoveries and experiences while using. This gives the patient support from people going through similar situations.

Dual-Diagnosis Therapy: oftentimes, patients are diagnosed with multiple disorders at the same time as having an anxiety disorder while also having a substance disorder. This therapy treats both disorders at the same time and allows the patient to decrease the time spent in our rehab facility.

We also offer recreational therapies, meditation techniques, acupuncture and holistic treatments that focus on relieving the mind and body of unwanted stress that may have caused the addiction in the first place.
