For those who have been going through addiction, whether you’ve been addicted to drugs for years or have just recently realized you’re dependent on a drug, you will need focused and comprehensive addiction treatment that is built around you needs. The best way to accomplish this is to enroll in an addiction treatment center like Vaughan Institute and our drug rehab center in Des Moines, Iowa. But first, you need to overcome denial. The first step to any addiction treatment is to admit to yourself and others that you have a problem and that you need professional and experienced addiction specialists to overcome it. Once you admit that, nothing will be stopping you from overcoming addiction indefinitely.


After you have eliminated denial, you will be able to seek a supervised withdrawal in our Des Moines drug detox clinic. While your body goes through the process of ridding itself of the harmful chemicals that keep you dependent on your drug of choice, you will go through uncomfortable and unpleasant side effects. To ensure that this process is as safe, comfortable, and efficient as it can be, we must watch your detox closely. We will work with you to show you how to handle symptoms and will make sure that you get through detox successfully.


When you get done ridding yourself of the harmful toxins, you will work through your long-term addiction in group and personal therapy. First, you’ll meet with a personal counselor to begin getting your struggles off your chest and receiving professional advice through crafting your customized and comprehensive addiction treatment plan. This program will include screening for dual diagnosis mental health issues, which is when someone who is suffering with an addiction is also going through the plight of an underlying mental health disorder. Dual diagnosis describes nearly half the people with an addiction, and to get through the process of recovery, you need to reveal the root cause of the dependence, whatever it is, and begin working on healing those core problems.


You will also work on your mental health in group therapy. Group sessions will help you give and receive empathy, therefore showing you are not alone in this struggle. Together, your group will listen to each other’s stories of adversity, exchange invaluable advice about triggers and cravings, and work to show each other that healing is possible. The bonds, advice, and empathy you will experience here will likely last with you long after you have left our Des Moines addiction recovery facility and transcend into aftercare.


Finally, as you get ready to leave our substance abuse treatment clinic in Des Moines, you will depart with the guidance of your personalized program. The love and support you have gained through the people you have met will stay with you as you move into treatment on your own. You will always have the people there to help you after you have come to our rehab facility. You don’t have to do this alone. Call us today to set up an appointment and you will begin crafting your path to freedom at Vaughan Behavioral Health and our addiction treatment center in Des Moines, Iowa. Don’t miss the best chance of your life.
