AION Recovery Philosophy
Aion Recovery is an alcohol and drug rehab facility that specializes in tailored care for our clients.
We are a medically monitored adventure-based and holistic drug treatment facility that recognizes the necessity for alternate methods to drug rehabilitation. Having watched the success of these programs all over the country, we incorporate the holistic and adventure based methods with the latest alternative, cutting-edge treatments in conjunction with the time-tested 12-step program to ensure the best conceivable results.
Our main focus is on the private needs of each individual client, modifying a unique track of holistic & adventure-based treatment to maximize personal experience. Aion Recovery focuses on the recovery of the entire person - mind, body and spirit. From individual therapy treatments that can heal the mind, to nutritional classes, to adventure groups and yoga sessions that can cater to the body and soul, Aion Recovery's expert staff will work hard to help each of its patients discover the root of their addiction issues as well as teach them the most promising of natural coping mechanisms.
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 “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
