Addiction Treatment

In the Chippewa Valley, a woman named Lydia Bethmann, a recovering alcoholic, has opened a sober home. Called Our Dwelling Place, the home's mission is to create a drug and alcohol-free environment for women. Lydia's own experiences and recovery have inspired her to create a sober living home in Eau Claire. While recovery is not easy, it is far more rewarding than a life of alcohol or drugs.

Sober living homes are designed for young people who are pursuing sobriety and want a life of sobriety. These homes are a step down from an acute residential treatment facility. Residents at these homes are expected to maintain rules for behavior and participate in therapeutic meetings, while maintaining a healthy sense of community. In addition, they are required to attend outside support groups, which helps them integrate into their communities. In a drug recovery home, social connections are an essential part of recovery.

There are various levels of treatment available at a sober living home, including inpatient and outpatient programs. Many patients find inpatient treatment to be most effective in the early stages of recovery. Inpatient treatment provides round-the-clock medical care, supervision, and management services. A program schedule is designed to focus on recovery, which allows people to focus on their recovery and pursue their goals.

Among the many different addiction therapies available, couples therapy and individual psychotherapy are crucial to recovery. Couples therapy is a valuable part of recovery and can help couples find the joy and trust in their relationship again. Addiction affects the entire family. Family roles often shift, resulting in destructive behaviors, which need professional help to regain. The successful restoration of intimate relationships can help to reduce the chance of relapse.

Markquart, an entrepreneur, started Eau Claire Sober Living in 2006 with the hopes of providing women with a meaning to their experiences. The alcohol and drug addiction crisis in Wisconsin is not limited to the university; a third of households in the county reported being mentally unhealthy during the past month. Blackouts, tailgates, and sporting events are common features of the Badger culture.

Although it can be difficult to remain sober in an ordinary home, living in a sober living home can offer the perfect environment for recovery. Unlike a hospital, sober living homes provide structure and a comfortable environment for recovering addicts. Many of these homes are also covered by insurance or state-funded insurance. Depending on your situation, sober living homes can be a low-cost, convenient, and supportive environment.

Trauma therapy is another treatment option. It involves addressing traumatic events in the client's past. Many of these incidents stem from child abuse, domestic violence, and/or parent mental illness. Through this type of therapy, patients learn to process their past experiences and move on from them. It is especially beneficial if co-occurring disorders are being treated at the same time. While this type of therapy is not for everyone, it can help you overcome your addiction.

Inpatient rehab, on the other hand, offers housing and meals and is often the most intensive form of rehab. Patients will receive intensive treatment in a residential facility for about 28 days. The program includes various types of therapy, including individual sessions, group therapy, and family counseling. After the initial phase, the patient may go on to an outpatient rehab program. This process may require another few months or even years before you see results.

Most sober living homes require meetings with the resident's treatment program. They are designed to act as both a physical setting and a supportive community. However, The Rose House focuses on the physical environment and community as well as the spiritual aspect of recovery. Residents participate in group therapy and weekly family dinners. Markquart encourages residents to embrace their inner child. The Rose House will even take residents Christmas caroling.

Transitioning from incarceration to home can be difficult. This is why the Transition Services for Women program offers a wide variety of services, including assessments and a full line of case management services. These services offer a wide range of community resources to help women overcome their addiction. A SMART Recovery program may also be a good option for you if your goal is to become sober and live a sober life.
