Low Cost Drug Rehab Can Still Be Luxurious

Low Cost Drug Rehab, Serenity Vista, Panama

Low Cost Drug Rehab Can Still Be Luxurious There’s a common misconception that high-end luxury drug rehab treatment services must cost tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars. It has become almost a norm to hear of pristine private treatment centers in areas like California, Florida, Texas, Hawaii & Arizona charging upwards of 50 to even as much as 80 thousand dollars per month for services! In fact, low cost drug rehab can still be luxurious and of high quality. While some people are so fortunately situated to pay such extraordinary rates, the majority simply cannot and must submit themselves to whichever rehabilitation services might be available within their price range. Unfortunately, however, when all you have is a few thousand dollars to spend on helping yourself or your loved one recover from alcoholism or drug addiction, the options…

Drug Rehabs & Treatment Centers with High Success

Drug Rehabs & Treatment Centers with High Success If you scour the internet for drug rehabs and other types of addiction & alcoholism treatment centers you’ll notice countless places bragging about their enormously high success rates. You might see numbers as high as 70, 80 or even 90%. The million dollar question is, what is their definition of success, and how was it measured, and by what scientific rigor? Be wary of claims of treatment centers with high success. Does a high success rate to them mean staying sober throughout the extent of their residential treatment program? Does it mean staying sober for a specified period of time following completion of their program? If so, who monitors it and how do they verify the accuracy? What if they cannot reach past program clients, do they count that as a success…

“High Success Rate” in Drug Rehab-Treatment

“High Success Rate” in Drug Rehab-Treatment If you or someone you know happens to be searching for a drug rehab or treatment center online that focuses on addiction and/or alcoholism recovery services, you may notice many facilities boast a high success rate that is better than the rest. The concern is that, unlike with many other medical issues, in the world of addiction and alcoholism recovery, success is measured on a multitude of levels and therefore, has many different interpretations. Some treatment centers’ idea of “success” is merely for a client to complete their 30, 45, 70 or 90 day residential drug rehab program without having relapsed during therapy. This is definitely not an accurate benchmark of success. After all, during this time their car keys, money and freedom were likely outside of their possession so it does not depict a real-life…

How to Avoid Relapse After Treatment

How to Avoid Relapse After Treatment Honesty, Open-mindedness and Willingness are Indispensable Most drug rehabs and addiction & alcoholism treatment centers provide a standard level of care for a primary initial time period and then offer additional step-down programs that enable the client to gradually reintegrate themselves into the rigors of daily life while outside the protective bubble of treatment. During this time, the client would normally have the opportunity to essentially test out some of the many relapse prevention techniques he or she had learned during the treatment process, but in an environment that offers more leeway to encounter some of life’s daily hurdles. Preparing to prevent relapse after treatment is essential. The first thing to keep in mind is this; if the person is not truly committed to recovery and willing to take contrary action then the entire…

Zen Koan for Recovery

Days of Wine and Roses in Serenity Vista Rehab library

Zen Koan for Recovery Filled to the Rim In Addiction Recovery it is said that you only need to change one thing, but that thing is everything. And everything is included in everything. Carl Jung stated that this recovery from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body must be a “complete ego deflation, followed by a profound personality change”. Sounds simple enough doesn’t it? Yep, very simple, but not very easy. How do you precisely, go about changing everything? I’m going to answer that question in a famous little Zen Koan, but this little Zen Koan has itself undergone an unprofound personality change of its own. What I mean by that is, that I have adapted some of my favorite Koans, removing hard to pronounce ancient Japanese names, places and customs, substituting with modern Recovery circumstances. This is but one of many tools…
