Areas of Specialization
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “clinical detoxification” means that our experienced staff members will always be there to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Sobertec was there for me at my lowest point. I couldn't tell you just how much my drug addiction ruined me and nearly destroyed everything that I cared about. Once I made the decision to get help, this rehab facility was there for me every step of the way. I got a great case manager that looked after me, that still checks up on me after I finished treatment here. Been sober for nearly a year now thanks to them!
Words cannot describe how grateful I have for God for putting me at Sobertec and with my Case Manager. Thank you so very much for guiding me through this crazy journey back to sanity and my daughter. I honestly could not have done it without Sobertec. I thank Sobertec's staff for the many wonderful talks we had when I was down. The countless hours they spent with me working helping me learn to trust again, love again and find my spirituality. Helping me to deal with my sick family and learn healthy boundaries. My Case Manager was fun, generous, intuitive, smart and a hard worker, she never gave up on me. I love you all so much.
My time at Sobertec was enjoyable and a real learning experience. The group sessions were interesting and fun. The living quarters were excellent. The Staff were understanding, positive and helpful. The time at Sobertec saved my life. Thank you for everything. I now have 402 days clean and sober. I and my son are very happy.
Craig, Words could not express what a wonderful case manager, friend, and mentor you have been to me. From the day we met, I knew we would become something special. Trust me when I say I have never come to meet a more solid man in my life. Thank you Dude… So if I’m not back in Cali kiss Little Lyric for me. She has a special Dad. Love Ya Man. A wonderful case manager

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Alum B.A.S. rated treatment effectiveness with one star out of a possible five and noted that food was “horrible.” They also wrote: “A lot of the days we did not do much of anything and the days that we had sessions were repetitive and not helpful. I was back on drugs 2 days after my discharge.”
