At Swift River, we offer you and anyone else suffering from addiction access to a myriad of treatment methods and techniques. Our programs are all based on medically-proven methods that have been tested and approved for use in treating addiction. Every aspect of your health will be examined, your addiction put under the microscope and appropriate treatment programs used to help take you through the challenging steps of addiction recovery.
This isn’t going to be an easy process for anyone: addiction is a serious disease that requires a lifelong commitment to treatment and maintenance. We can’t promise you an easy journey, but we can give your our oath that we will be there with you through every challenge, each amazing breakthrough and will celebrate with you when you finally gain sobriety. Your struggle is our struggle and we are committed to helping our patients live their lives again.
The first step in our treatment is to help you break free from the toxic physical clutches of addiction. We offer medication-assisted therapies that create a comfortable environment to help you through the serious and physically painful stages of withdrawal. We use a variety of medications, such as buprenorphine, to help reduce the severity of your pain and to eliminate drug use cravings. Our services also include round-the-clock monitoring to ensure you never fall into a dangerous emergency situation.
In the past, many rehab centers stopped here and let a person exit treatment to handle their remaining problems on their own. At Swift River, we believe in a holistic treatment method that manages all of your symptoms and returns you as much as possible to your pre-addiction state. We understand that detoxification is just the first step and that working you through the negative symptoms of withdrawal will only help you get your foot in the door of recovery.
Even with medication-assisted withdrawal, you are likely to experience some physical discomfort and emotional pain. Our expert counselors will be there to help you in any way possible, including giving you replacement medicines or simply offering a caring presence. They will listen to your concerns and work hard to address them in healthy ways.
Physical Health Assessment
During your initial check-in period, your physical health will be carefully assessed to ensure that you aren’t suffering from any major health problems. Pain management techniques will be implemented here, as well as new and improved dietary guidelines. You’ll find yourself getting some of the best medical treatment in the nation, specialized for your addiction needs. Once you get your strength back, you’ll go through more difficult processes, such as yoga, Tai Chi and various exercise techniques.
The benefits of improved physical health are two-fold. First of all, it will help give you more strength, focus and positive energy. Secondly, it will help improve your mental health and alleviate anxiety and depression symptoms. Mindfulness techniques, such as meditation and breathing exercises, will help you master cravings and avoid dangerous relapses. We offer you access to a high-quality exercise room that lets you take a break and perform your own private fitness routines.
Regular checkups on your physical health will help make sure you are performing all your exercises properly and in a healthy manner. You will also be monitored to ensure that you aren’t suffering from any new or potent types of pain. Swift River is a leader in bringing you out of the physical doldrums created by addiction and giving you a whole new world of health.
Psychological Help Is Heavily Stressed
The sad truth is that mental health disorders are a common contributing factor to addiction. Thankfully, our experts at Swift River are skilled at identifying your mental health disorders and finding ways to treat them. It is only through the elimination of these problems that you can achieve a life that is truly free from addiction. Anticipate the following treatments to help alleviate your mental and emotional health needs:
- Dual diagnosis treatments to help treat co-occurring disorders, such as depression, anxiety and trauma
- Recreational treatment, such as painting and writing, that help you express your personal emotions in a constructive and meaningful way
- Family and group therapy that allow you to build strong support systems that fully understand your addiction of those who are willing to help you maintain your focus on the will to succeed
- Adventure therapy methods that challenge your physical and mental limits and give you the chance to achieve your goals in ways you never imagined
These psychological treatments will be going on alongside behavioral adjustment techniques to help you find new and healthy ways of coping with problems and beating relapse cravings. This “total person” therapy method may feel exhausting, but when you’re in the thick of recovery, you’ll find yourself compelled to continue your therapy and excited to tackle its new daily challenges. That’s the kind of excitement that treatment at Swift River inspires.
Behavioral Adjustment Techniques
Our highly successful mental health treatment doesn’t stop at just counseling sessions. We also offer multiple behavioral adjustment techniques that will guide you towards more healthy and positive coping methods. For example, our cognitive behavioral therapy experts will teach you how to correct negative thinking patterns (including addictive thought patterns) and replace them with positive ones.
This helps you create a positive self-image and a new sense of self-respect, both of which are crucial for addiction recovery success. If you suffer from more extreme mental health problems, such as borderline personality disorder, dialectical behavior therapy will teach you how to manage extreme emotions, gain a calm personal insight and interact with people in healthier ways. This will help break the need for addiction in your life and give you increased strength.
Another interesting approach we specialize in here at Swift River is motivational interviewing. This technique is non-invasive and non-confrontational: instead, it focuses on a goal-oriented intervention. Basically, an expert will interview you and help identify areas of life which motivate you so you can focus yourself on them. You’ll learn what truly matters in your life and learn how to master those aspects in your recovery.
Adventure Therapy Activities
While all our programs are top-of-the-line, our adventure therapy program is where we truly stand out. Adventure therapy takes you out of the comfort of the rehab facility and plunges you into the wilderness. Here you will experience the naturally healing benefits of the wild and learn new skills that will challenge you in unique ways. Typical adventure therapy activities you’ll experience here include:
- Mountain climbing
- Mastering survival techniques
- Building shelters
- Creating fires from scratch
- Cooking over a fire
- Riding zip lines
- Exploring the wilderness
- Meditating in the wild
Clearly, adventure therapy offers multiple benefits that make it more than worth your while. Please don’t hesitate to talk to one of our specialists about this unique treatment method. They will tell you more about what to expect during your stay and the kinds of things you should pack to ensure that you have a successful and happy stay with us.
After you finish treatment with us, you will be enrolled in our aftercare services. This typically includes regular calls from our counselors to help gauge your treatment success and progress. During these calls, you can discuss any problems you may be having and vent out your frustrations as needed. Our graduates often learn to look forward to these calls as a way of checking their own success and motivating themselves to succeed.
We also work hard to help you integrate back into your daily routine by helping you find temporary housing or even work, if necessary. Beyond these services are our educational classes, which help teach you new skills and help you regain lost ones. Essentially, aftercare sets you up for continued success after you leave our facility.
If you need it, we also offer outpatient care that will give you the temporary help you need to beat cravings or to recover from a relapse. There’s no shame in a relapse, but there’s a good chance you’ll need the help of people you trust (like us) to get clean again. If you do relapse, use it as a learning tool to create new motivation for a sober life. If you need it, we can also help set you up with a sobriety group of your choice. We want you happy and healthy and will do what we can to get you there.
