Addiction Treatment Center at Windward Way

Offering a Treatment Solution for Addiction Like No Other

There are many reasons why most young adults became addicted to drugs. Here is a list of the most common ones we encounter at Windward Way’s substance abuse treatment program:

  • Drugs are powerful—they fill the perceived boredom many young people experience.

This first point may seem obvious, but it’s one that many people seem to miss: drugs deliver (at least initially) on the promises they seem to make. At the start, using drugs like heroin, meth, cocaine or marijuana can be a fun experience. Many on our staff are on long-term recovery themselves and recognize the power these drugs hold over a person’s life.

The catch, of course, is twofold: 1) They quit working like they once did, and; 2) The negative side effects and serious consequences to a person’s health inevitably always outweigh whatever fun they provided in the beginning. Drugs can and do ruin millions of lives and cost billions in wasted dollars each year. At Windward Way, we fill our client’s lives instead with purpose and meaning that only a life in recovery can bring. Since we deal with many different addiction types, you’ll be happy to know that many of our alumni first found the real solution they were searching for specifically at our substance abuse rehab center.

  • Young people see friends, role models or famous movie stars using drugs and think they can do the same.

“Peer pressure” is a real phenomenon, but the concept is frequently misunderstood as the tired cliché: ‘Come on. Try it. It’ll make you fly.’ The fact is our culture is inundated with images of alcohol and drug use in both the media and online; often those who view it see absolutely no repercussions whatsoever.

Of course, that’s just not reality. The fact is that virtually no one can use drugs for any length of time without something bad happening (i.e. legal issues, health-wise, a loss of a job, or broken relationships). Thankfully, we confront this fiction at Windward Way and offer a new, solid foundational approach to life that young people only will find through our addiction treatment center—we are simply an addiction rehab like no other.

  • Some men and women self-medicate to treat an underlying mental illness such as clinical depression, bipolar disorder, or another disorder to ease their pain.

This reason we see particularly often at Windward Way: a person entering our rehab actually has a mis- or under-diagnosed co-occurring disorder that has not been dealt with. Fortunately for the young men and women we treat at our addiction treatment program for substance abuse, Windward Way’s clinical partnership with mental health professionals can address these disorders simultaneously; it allows people to find the balance they may have not even realized they needed.

Whatever the situation, our drug rehab will help you with your dependence on these medications.

Over 23 million people in the United States are addicted to drugs and alcohol, but only 11% of those people will enter a drug rehabilitation center. Without treatment, the devastation of the person’s life and their relationships with family and loved ones will continue.

Drug and alcohol abuse cost billions of dollars per year in lost productivity. Addiction cuts short lives and shatters dreams. But, for those who make the hard choice to get treatment, there are numerous options available to help them beat their addiction and take their lives back.

How do you know if you are abusing a substance?

If a person gets cravings for a drug or alcohol, starts consuming more to get the intended effect, and begins to experience negative consequences related to substance but can’t quit taking it, they have an addiction.

How do I know if I need drug rehab for substance abuse?

Anyone who becomes addicted to a substance needs some form of treatment for the addiction. Underlying causes must be explored in therapy. Sometimes, an individual may need to undergo a medical detox to clear the drug from their symptoms. Furthermore, some substances come with unpleasant and possibly deadly side effects that require the supervision and help from medical staff. At-home detox is inadequate at providing this necessary support.

The individual may need to stay in a residential program if their addiction is particularly severe or been ongoing for years. And an individualized treatment plan will require crafting by medical staff and therapists to lessen the chances of relapse once the person returns to life outside the facility.

What is the intake process like at an inpatient facility?

At intake, a counselor will assess the severity of the addiction, and determine which type of facility will best meet the patient’s needs. Payment will also be evaluated and processed at intake. Even if insurance doesn’t cover a stay, a counselor can help the person find financing or receive state aid so they can get the treatment they need.

How much therapy will I get in drug rehab?

That depends on several factors. If the addiction were precipitated or followed by a comorbid mental health condition, the patient would need more therapy and probably different types of treatment to address the underlying mental health issue.

For some substance abuse issues, group therapy is incredibly helpful for recovery. Here, patients will get a sense of community and camaraderie in a judgment-free environment, led by a trained therapist.

For ongoing treatment, patients are required to attend intermittent one-on-one therapy sessions, where they will be able to address current life stressors which may cause a relapse.

Therapists can give them much-needed guidance on how to handle stress and adverse circumstances positively.  

Why is treatment necessary for substance abuse?substances

Without adequate treatment, individuals are at an increased risk of relapsing if they attempt to quit on their own. Also, withdrawal symptoms for certain substances can be deadly, such as the risk of developing delirium tremens with alcohol addiction. Treatment facilities are staffed with caring, trained therapists and medical staff who can supervise the withdrawal process, and equip the person in recovery with the tools they will need to live a life free from substance abuse and addiction.
