It is difficult for people to safely recover from addiction without supervision. There are a number of drugs that pose a greater risk of severe withdrawal symptoms than others. Supervised detoxification protects people from the worst-case scenario of withdrawal symptoms from drugs such as barbiturates and alcohol.

There are many clients at the Mullen Recovery drug detox clinic in Seattle, Washington who have the potential to recover from their struggle with drugs but suffer from an environment that is far from conducive to their recovery. With a supervised addiction recovery program, people may have not otherwise had a chance to recover from their addiction. You can be given a new lease on life without nearly as much risk.

In a supervised addiction recovery facility, clients have the help of professionals who can ensure that they are undergoing the most reliable, scientifically validated methods for detoxification. The supervision of certified professionals lessens the chance that clients harm themselves from ineffective or excessively harsh self-detoxification methods. Participation in the supervised detox program also helps clients have a better chance at enduring the mental challenges of the process through social support.

Dual Diagnosis Mental Health Treatment

There are many cases where the symptoms caused by excessive drug abuse can overlap with the symptoms of mental illnesses. In certain cases, the effects of the drugs can exacerbate any mental illnesses that existed before the drug abuse began. In other cases, substance abuse may actually precede the development of a mental illness.

Whether the substance abuse or the mental illness developed first, it is essential for there to be an acknowledgment of both in the overall manifestation of clients’ behavior. Through dual diagnosis, healthcare providers in our Seattle addiction treatment facility can effectively account for both the substance-based and mental illness-based symptoms that clients exhibit and temper their approach accordingly.

Facility Safety and Care

Safety is a top priority in the management at any substance abuse treatment facility. It is only through the continued effort to keep the facility in top condition that clients can have the best chance of going through their recovery with minimal risk of having their recovery hindered.

Community Social Support

No matter what the source of the client's’ struggles may be, it is essential for them to have the right degree of support to keep up their morale. The quality of recovery from any addiction not only requires physical detoxification, but also that the client's mental state isn’t holding back their ability to heal.

Excessive stress releases excess cortisol, blocking the T-cells that are vital for the human’s body’s immune response. By making sure that clients have social support in the addiction treatment center, there is much less of a risk that clients will have a level of stress that keeps them their best state of health.

Individualized Treatment

Naturally, clients may react to the same treatment approach in differing capacities because of their different personalities and tolerances. One of the most important parts of any addiction recovery center is to make sure that all of the treatment approaches are properly personalized for the welfare of clients in the facility’s care.

Overall Rehabilitation

The overall process at the Mullen Recovery drug rehab center in Seattle, Washington will include a preliminary evaluation stage, an acclimation stage and a direct treatment stage. By closely observing clients as they acclimate to their new environment, the eventual transition into direct treatment can be undergone in the most well-advised way for their personal needs.

After executing a client's addiction recovery treatment and discharging them, the drug rehab facility will arrange a series of aftercare standards to make sure that higher-risk clients have the best chance at transitioning back into their daily lives.
