Chemical Dependency Program
Chemical Dependency – The Disease
Chemical Dependency is an all pervasive disease that touches the lives of most Americans. Consider these facts:
- 1 out of every 4 families in the United States suffers from alcohol or drug related addiction problems.
- 25 to 40 % of all general hospital patients are admitted for a drug or alcohol related problem.
- An estimated 98 million people in this country are chemically dependent or in a relationship with someone who’s chemically dependent.
- 35 million are children of alcoholics.
There is a significant amount of data that supports a genetic predisposition toward chemical dependency disease. Genetically associated diseases ultimately have a bio-chemical basis. Science is now working hard to find biological markers to identify high risk individuals, but no such tests are currently available.
Chemical Dependency Rehabilitation Programs
Chemical Dependency can be identified and successfully treated. Medical detoxification is not a substitute or replacement for treatment; it is just the beginning of the recovery process. At Hemet Valley Recovery Center and Sage Retreat, rehabilitation programs are provided in inpatient, outpatient and long term residential settings. Following detoxification, rehabilitation treatment provides the foundation that will support long term recovery. We believe that chemical dependency is a primary problem, not a symptom of another disease and thus primary treatment for addiction is appropriate and important. Closely aligned with the principals of 12 Step Recovery, Hemet Valley Recovery Center & Sage Retreat provide individualized care that includes the psychological, social, spiritual, and physical aspects of the whole person. Care is provided through an interdisciplinary team with a case manager assigned to each individual patient. The treatment team includes Physicians, Registered Nurses, Certified Counselors, and Adjunctive Therapists. When indicated a Dietitian and Physical Therapist participate in the team process. Patients are included in goal setting and participate in the development of the treatment plan. Treatment includes: group therapy, educational lectures and presentations, cognitive therapy, personalized assignments, 12 Step and Holistic Therapy groups, exercise, recreation groups, and relapse prevention to name a few.
Chemical Dependency is a family disease and treatment is available for family members as an included service. For more information regarding our Family Program, please visit the Family Program page listed on this site.
