Addiction / alcoholism treatment and recovery program

Introduction

Crossroads Recovery Centre is a 12 step treatment facility that believes in a complete individual treatment program for each client. Years of personal experience in the field of addiction and the best practices of various professionals and organizations involved in the treatment of people suffering from the disease of addiction, have led us to the formation of our program of recovery.

At Crossroads Recovery Centre we believe in three essential parts of the recovery process that need to be addressed for the client to enter into the recovery process.

First the physical side of the addiction needs to be managed, our clients are given a medical detox program under the supervision of our consulting physician, and once the physical side effects have been overcome the process of understanding the mental and spiritual side of the disease can begin. Guided by their addictions Councillor clients are introduced to the program of recovery and any queries the client has are explored and explained.

Second the clients own underlying problems need to be looked at and dealt with in a clinical environment under the guidance of their Councillor, the client needs to come to terms with their past, present and future in order to move forward in their recovery. At this point in the process family therapy will be an option, allowing the whole family to enter into the recovery process with the client.

Third the client needs to be assisted with the leaving of the safety of the recovery centre and the reintegration into society as a useful functional human being, this is done with the assistance of an outpatients program and the use of the fellowships of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous or whichever apply to the client. During treatment clients are taken on a weekly basis to the meetings of the two fellowships in order for them to understand how they work and to begin making friends in these groups. This will assist them when they leave the facility and need to attend these meetings on their own.
