Residential care provides a very intensive, focused type of treatment. The 24-hour a day exposure to recovering people and recovery activities offers a type of support that may be critical in the beginning of the recovery process for many clients. Clients are often amazed to find their urge to use diminishes in this supportive environment and that they are able, with sufficient support, to maintain sobriety. The program helps them focus on creating a supportive environment for recovery outside of Mountain Vista Farm when residential treatment is completed.
If you have become physically dependent on alcohol or drugs, our detox program allows you to withdraw safely in an understanding, compassionate setting. Our Medical Consultants supervise the treatment team in caring for you and will order medications, if necessary. Mountain Vista Farm’s team has provided a safe withdrawal experience for thousands of clients who have needed detox from alcohol and drugs, including opiates (heroin and prescription opiates such as Vicodin and Oxycontin,) methamphetamine, marijuana, and prescription drugs, such as benzodiazepines (Ativan, Xanax, Valium.) It encourages our detox clients to know that the majority of our staff understands the withdrawal process from their own personal experience. If you would more information, please see our extensive information about alcohol and drug addiction.
Counseling and Education
Education is also an essential ingredient of treatment. The fact that someone wants to stop using drugs does not mean they know how to do that. Many people have made sincere efforts to stop on their own, but without the required knowledge and support, have been unsuccessful. Our educational series gives both clients and their families a firm foundation of understanding and skills for successful recovery. If at any time you would like to speak with someone about this very helpful aspect of our residential care program, please call us for support or to answer questions.
There is some very helpful information available if you are a family member who has questions about treatment, please view our frequently asked questions, and also remember, we are always ready to answer your questions confidentially when you contact us.
