No matter which way you slice the pie, prisons do not perform well in rehabilitating offenders. Programs are frequently punitive, and according to a report in the Washington Post, about 66 percent of prisoners, within three years of their release, commit crimes again. In many instances, the new crime is more serious than the one that previously landed an offender in prison. This is especially bad news for people in prison on drug crimes. However, rehab should be an option for many prisoners. We published a post here http://delaware-valley.biz/drug-treatment/facing-drug-charges-rehab-is-an-option/ about this topic.
Often your rehabilitation needs to start with you being physically removed from your drug of choice. This facility has a drug and alcohol detoxification center on campus. This is not the norm. Most inpatient facilities require candidates to seek detoxification at a hospital first prior to arriving at their facility. With the help of a highly trained clinical staff of nurses, therapists and a doctor and perhaps some carefully managed pharmaceuticals, you can begin the physical withdrawal from drugs, opiates and alcohol right at Livengrin.
Generally, your stay at this inpatient rehab in Bucks County will be for 28 days depending upon your insurance policy’s limitations for this type of service. Small therapy groups, one on one counseling with an alcohol counselor and twelve step recovery meetings are all part of the daily program offered at Livengrin.
Addiction to pain pills, OxyContin, opiates and IV heroin is at epidemic levels in our country. Removing the addict from his or her access to these drugs seems to be the only way to find any success in the recovery process. Individual and group counseling and intensive behavioral therapy is designed to help the patients recognize the insanity of their addiction, accept their powerlessness of the drugs and be willing to embark on a practical program of action designed to change the way they think about these drugs.
As your drug intervention specialist, we have a relationship with various treatment facilities throughout the country. The first step in the process is to ask for help and be willing to accept the help we recommend. If you can do that, you are on the road to recovery. Call us today at: (844) 688-8555
