First Alcohol Detox – Then Rehab

During your first phone call with our team, we will ask you certain questions to learn more about the severity of your addiction. We aren’t asking you these questions to make you feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. Instead, we are asking these questions to determine whether or not you need to begin your recovery in a detox program.

We have partnered with several detox facilities around the country including facilities that are close to the Scranton area. This gives you the opportunity to receive immediate detox care. Due to the fact that withdrawal symptoms can set in within mere hours of the last time that you took your last drink, it’s critical that you make plans to attend detox as soon as possible. Our team begins to work quickly and, in most cases, we can have you set up to go to a detox facility within 24-hours. We strongly recommend that you never attempt to go through the detox process by yourself due to the fact that it can be potentially deadly. Instead, allow our colleagues to monitor and assist you in treating any possible withdrawal symptoms that may arise during this first week of your sobriety.

Getting to the Root of the Alcohol Addiction

Do you remember the moment in your life where you looked at alcohol as a source of comfort? For some people, the answer is yes. Even if they don’t remember the moment that that drink turned into numerous drinks, they can remember approximately when their drinking started to become out of control. What was the triggering event for all of those drinks? Perhaps you experienced a traumatic injury as a result of a car accident or another serious event. Maybe you are a first responder and you responded to a particularly terrible scene. Clearly identifying the events in your life that made you feel as though drinking was the only way to cope with your emotions is critical in your overall recovery.

At The Source, we work with clients that fall into both categories. We collaborate with several clients who clearly know the root cause of their addiction as well as clients who understand that something happened in their life to trigger an addiction, but they aren’t exactly sure of the event. Through open and honest communication with our team as well as other clients, you will be able to come to a place where you feel more comfortable speaking about these traumatic events which will help you to overcome your addiction.

Overcoming Addiction With Therapy

Without question, therapy is the most important component in your overall recovery journey. Although it may feel awkward and uncomfortable at times, it’s critical because it will help you to develop an understanding of the root cause of your addiction. The best place to start when it comes to a plan for therapy is with group therapy. If you’ve never experienced group therapy before but you have gone to a 12-step meeting, you will notice that the two are very similar in many ways. During your group therapy session, you will have the opportunity to share your opinions about the topics being discussed. In turn, you will listen to the thoughts of other members in your group. You will likely come to find out that there are several other people that are in your group that may have similar thoughts as you. Making these connections will help you to develop your own system of support which is a critical aspect of your overall recovery.

Individual therapy, also known as one on one therapy, will also help you work through your addiction and help you when it comes to your overall treatment. During individual therapy, you will speak personally with a member of our team about different events in your life as well as how your treatment plan is progressing. If you feel as though you need to make any changes to your program, you can address those possible changes during individual therapy.

Trauma-based therapy is another example of therapy that you will experience during your time in alcohol rehab. We understand that therapy impacts every client differently which is why we offer a number of different trauma-based therapy options when you come to The Source. Our team will take the time to get to know you and your situation so that we can pair you with a form of trauma-based therapy that will help you to work through the different contributing factors of your addiction in a way that will not traumatize you further.

The Source Treatment Center team has helped countless clients throughout the country including in the Scranton area. If you’re ready to make a change in your life and develop a healthier and sober way of living, The Source Treatment Center staff is here and ready to help you. We recommend that you take advantage of everything that our team has to offer so that you can go on to live a life that is free of the influence of alcohol.
