Drug and Alcohol Recovery Options
Is a 30 day inpatient rehab the right choice?
When considering the rehab option, are you aware the rates of recovery are actually quite low and purported claims of success vary significantly?
These are legitimate concerns deserving informed answers. Marin Drug Recovery is capable of creating an alternative 'option for recovery' that can lead to a life free of chemical addiction. Of course alternatives will not be the best choice for all and those with more severe addictions may need to find medical detoxification and an extended inpatient program to help launch into a sustainable recovery. Many others suffering drug and alcohol abuse or dependence can benefit from an individually tailored program, which will suit their current situation. While specifics will need to be discussed, an approach of this direction usually consists of individual therapy and establishing an ongoing support system. This is designed to create and compliment a new way of living beginning with the first day of recovery.
Trust & Experience
What is expected of our clients is simply to bring a strong desire for change, honesty and integrity. The 'work' takes on the atmosphere of a warm conversation with a close friend.... supportive, knowledgeable and willing to confront unhealthy patterns. What you bring to the conversation is a willingness to participate, learn and grow. While many believe that it is necessary to 'hit bottom' before recovery can begin, we believe that it is not necessary to 'lose everything' before the cycle of addiction can be reversed. If you want the freedom to choose a healthy, loving lifestyle, the best day to begin is today.
When I discovered a member of my family had an addiction to speed it seemed everybody had an opinion or advice. It was difficult to sort through these and Paul seemed to have a clarity which made sense and wasn't self serving. He clearly laid out the options while making very gentle suggestions. His initial description of the problem, the course it would take without any intervention and the eventual outcome were all very accurate. AMP
