WHAT IS TREATMENT?
If you or someone you know needs help,
Addiction is a complex, progressive disease. Lifetime Recovery recognizes that successful and lasting substance use disorder recovery is best achieved in a focused and highly structured environment. Since 1963, Lifetime’s substance use disorder programs, founded on 12-step principals, have helped thousands of people. They are designed to treat causes and conditions of chemical dependency by developing a holistic approach emphasizing the mind, body, and spirit.
Lifetime offers evidence-based Intensive Treatment that focuses on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy which helps clients change behavior by working with and resolving ambivalence. This process helps the client understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors. Lifetime Recovery also emphasizes group and community interaction in sustaining the client’s health and wellness through sobriety. Supportive Treatment programs focus on maintaining day-to-day life in recovery using Motivation Enhancement Therapy which is a client-centered approach to enhance behavioral changes while reintroducing clients back into society and the work force. Clients learn that the delicate balance between self-reliance and support from others is crucial to their recovery. They gain the confidence necessary to maintain their sobriety when returning to their communities as they progress from destructive behaviors to positive long-term changes.
Because of the heavy emphasis on the emotional aspects of addiction, clients often leave the program with an increased sense of community and strong, lasting bonds with fellow participants. Many Lifetime Recovery Alumni return to the campus to lead Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings and to encourage clients to become part of an active recovery community.
