What Steps Should You Take?
When facing the treatment of drug addiction, you should first look for a rehab program that offers detox treatments. A medical detox is the very first step of recovery. Drug and alcohol abuse requires a detoxification process to safely remove the toxins from your body.
First, look for detox programs that provide medical professionals to tend to you or your loved one’s withdrawal symptoms. Medical detox treatment facilities are the safest environment to do a drug detox in, because the guest is under medical supervision at all times. A detox center offers safety and security during what can be a very dangerous withdrawal process. Royal Life Centers at The Haven is Washington state’s premier drug and alcohol detox center.

What is the Best Rehab Program for Drug Addiction?
When looking for addiction treatment, you should look into treatment centers that use evidence based treatment. Treatment services should include comprehensive mental health and behavioral health support and education, because drug addiction affects behavior and brain functioning. Addiction treatment requires delving into much more than just a guest’s alcohol or drug use, the treatment process should include a wide range of therapies to identify the root cause of substance use disorder.
As described by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, treatment should address other possible mental disorders. Royal Life Centers at The Haven puts mental health as a priority. Necessary medication for mental health, along with behavioral therapies, are important for the overall health of our guests. Addiction treatment should focus on medical, mental and behavioral health for the overall care of guests.
Behavioral therapy at Royal Life Centers help guests shift their harmful attitudes and behaviors surrounding drug use, increase healthy behaviors and life skills, and offer other treatment alongside therapy- like medications to treat any co-occuring disorders (like anxiety and depression).
Successful treatment follows several steps of the recovery process. A journey to recovery should include: medical detox, behavioral counseling, evaluation and treatment of co-occuring disorders, medication (if necessary), therapy, and relapse prevention. Access to medical professionals should be available at all times. Case management is also important to meet the needs of all of our guests, which is why each guest has an appointed case manager.
