One of the great advantages of seeking care for a substance use disorder in a residential treatment facility like Waypoint Recovery Center is that the person who is struggling with drugs or alcohol is given the opportunity to step away from the day-to-day pressures and habits that may be fueling their addiction.
Attempting to give up drugs or alcohol while still going about one’s regular schedule and while meeting one’s daily responsibilities can be extremely difficult. This is true not just because of the prevalence and power of withdrawal symptoms, but because a person’s regular routine will always provide them with access to drugs or alcohol. After all, they have threaded substance use into the fabric of their life, and it is not easy to pull the thread back out. Not only that, but the pressures or problems that may have caused an individual to look for relief via substance use will likely still be present and providing another obstacle a person must overcome if they are going to give up drugs of alcohol. Taken together, these challenges and obstacles can seem wholly insurmountable.
As a result, the best thing a person who needs treatment for a substance use disorder can do is to make a commitment to a residential treatment program that takes them away from ongoing temptations, pressures, and problems. And it is hard to imagine a more beautiful and relaxing setting in which to do that than Waypoint Recovery Center. Our facility in Cameron is a peaceful, scenic environment ideal for helping our clients address a substance use disorder and the underlying issues that have led to it development.
Of course, getting treatment for a substance use disorder should note be mistaken for a vacation. There is plenty of work to do—both by the person who needs help and the team providing that help.
At Waypoint Recovery Center, our multi-disciplinary treatment team includes highly trained professionals with significant levels of experience in addiction medicine. Those in treatment have access to medical and nursing staff all day, every day.
The Waypoint team also includes individuals in active recovery who can provide peer support because they truly understand what a person in treatment is going through. In difficult moments—and everyone’s treatment is bound to include some difficult moments—these compassionate individuals are often best equipped to help someone stick with the program instead of giving up.
Waypoint Recovery Center’s structured, comprehensive program includes daily process group meetings with 12-Step facilitation; education about recovery skills, relapse prevention, and various psychoeducational topics; individual therapy; development of recreational skills that align with living sober; and involvement with the local Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous communities.
Of course, eventually residential treatment comes to an end and a person—now sober and equipped with resources, strategies, and support—must return to their day-to-day life. At Waypoint, we do everything possible to fully prepare each person we serve for what can be a challenging transition.
When a person enters residential treatment, they can focus all of their energies and attention on getting and staying sober. Waypoint Recovery Center provides an excellent environment for going through that process as well as a top-notch team to provide ongoing and essential support.
