Our Residential Addiction Treatment Program
The Ridge offers a comfortable, serene, and private setting for residential addiction treatment focused on helping patients overcome drug and alcohol addiction. Our 28-day substance abuse program is centered on a structured schedule that is facilitated by licensed and highly experienced medical staff and counselors. Our patients benefit not only from the comfortable environment of the facility and the personalized medical care, but also from the structured daily activities led by professional staff, the focus on family involvement and wellness activities to address full-body recovery.
The Ridge also offers in-home intervention assistance as a service to help families get patients to accept treatment.
The Ridge’s Substance Abuse Program
When necessary, we provide initial detoxification services as part of the substance abuse program, which are supervised by physicians and nurses. This treatment typically lasts 3-5 days during the beginning of a patient’s residential addiction treatment. The program then incorporates the elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), 12-step facilitation programs, group therapy, and tailored individual treatment. Family visits and participation can become a valuable part of recovery, and are encouraged. Individual treatment programs vary, but may include the following therapeutic components, as we provide personalized clinical care for each patient:
- Meditation Groups
- Reading / Writing Assignments
- Individual Counseling
- Treatment Team Meetings
- Exercise / Recreational Activities
- Free Time
- 12-Step Meetings (AA / NA)
In addition to these structured components of residential addiction treatment, patients are provided upscale meals prepared by our in-house chef. One of the difficult aspects of the substance abuse recovery process is the poor nutrition resulting from drug and alcohol addiction. The Ridge’s chef will address this problem by providing healthy, restorative meals for each patient, taking into account, as much as possible, food preferences and any allergies.
Exercise is also imperative to full-body wellness, and The Ridge offers exercise options to complement the substance abuse program such as swimming, horse pastures, a sauna, spacious grounds, along our campus overlooking a beautiful countryside, and even a stocked fishing pond. We are in the process of adding circuit exercise equipment including cardio machines. For patients who require more than 28 days of residential addiction treatment, extended stays can easily be arranged.
Behind our premier treatment program is the dedication and support of our professional medical and clinical staff. They are compassionate and knowledgeable and have decades of experience with chemical and addiction counseling, emergency medicine, and therapeutic treatment. We provide personalized medical care to our patients, and our high staff-to-patient ratio makes treatment tailored and focused.
While our clinical substance abuse program is key to the success of our patients’ treatment, our attentive staff and personalized service makes recovery comfortable – like at home – instead of in a hospital.
