Treating Addiction and the Underlying Causes
At Whispering Oaks Lodge we have a lot of experience on our staff – both personally and in counseling – with substance abuse treatment. We know there are underlying issues that cause addiction in the first place. This is examined from the start as we develop an individualized treatment plan that will serve as a foundation for the long-term recovery of the client.
We believe the foundation to an effective treatment experience is helping clients and their families identify traumatic issues that have never been fully addressed from an emotional perspective. Substance abuse needs to be carefully addressed and evaluated by medical professionals from all types of disciplines. When these assessments are combined, the staff can then begin to develop a treatment plan that will provide the clients and their families with a clear approach to becoming healthy.
All drug and alcohol treatment programs at Whispering Oaks focus on proven holistic treatment techniques – treating the mind, body, and spirit. Psychotherapy, didactic lectures, behavioral modification, peer assessment, and other forms of counseling will be used on a daily basis.
At times, detoxification will be required for clients. Our medical staff helps clients get thru this extremely uncomfortable condition. Medications may be used and of course, will be under the direction of a medical doctor and a registered nurse. Our goal is to make our clients as comfortable as possible.
