a woman going to substance abuse treatment centerAddiction is a disease no different than any other physical illness. As a disease, it doesn’t discriminate and can affect anyone, regardless of age or status. It requires professional support so individuals can heal and recover. Thus, finding the right substance abuse treatment center is vital to help individuals overcome addiction. At Sierra Sage Recovery Services, we strive to reduce an individual’s substance abuse and achieve a substance-free life. Our compassionate and experienced caregivers and professionals can help individuals get control of their life back and prevent and reduce relapse.

The Need for a Substance Abuse Treatment Center

Our substance abuse treatment center looks to break the cycle of drug and alcohol abuse. Often, individuals turn to drugs or alcohol to deal with stressors and underlying mental health conditions. By abusing substances, individuals feel temporarily relieved of the distress or discomfort they are experiencing. Unfortunately, abusing drugs or alcohol only masks the underlying issue, usually allowing it to worsen. By repeatedly abusing substances, individuals put themselves at great risk of becoming dependent.

Through repeated use of drugs or alcohol, an individual’s brain chemistry is altered. Their body becomes reliant upon the substance to produce the necessary chemicals so an individual can function properly. Without drugs or alcohol, the individual begins to experience intense and painful withdrawal symptoms. Thus, a vicious cycle develops as someone becomes dependent or addicted. To break this cycle, individuals need medical support and professional addiction treatment.

Treatment will vary depending on each individual’s unique struggles with drugs or alcohol. For some, recovery can be achieved with relatively short outpatient programs, while others need a longer duration program. Also, treatment will vary depending on the substance an individual is dependent upon. No matter what treatment program is needed, our substance abuse treatment center offers comprehensive treatment and customized therapy to meet each client’s needs.

Sierra Sage

Overcoming substance use disorder can be a challenge. However, addiction is highly treatable, and at Sierra Sage Recovery Services, our substance abuse treatment center can give the necessary support to heal. Our therapeutic services and treatment programs can give clients the tools and resources they need to overcome their drug or alcohol addiction. Some of our addiction treatment program include:

  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP): Here, clients come to our facility at Sierra Sage to receive the individualized and group therapy they need to work through their substance use disorder. However, clients can return to their home or sober living facility after the day’s treatment allowing them to keep their social commitments and meet work responsibilities.
  • Intensive outpatient treatment (IOP): Like our PHP, however, clients receive a condensed program of treatment that allows them to get treatment around their schedule while still living and working as usual. Unlike PHO, IOP is typically a shorter timeframe and designed for individuals with milder addictions or looking to get help after a relapse.
  • Outpatient treatment: This program lies near the “least intensive” end of the treatment continuum. It is a treatment best suited for those with the least severe substance abuse issues. This program provides a level of flexibility that many of those struggling with dependency need. It is especially suited for those who know they need help for drug abuse or alcohol addiction but cannot stop working, attending school, or caring for their family to get it.
