For many who abuse alcohol, there is often increased interaction with law enforcement as a result of becoming aggressive while under the influence or driving under the influence of alcohol. Interpersonal relationships are also known to suffer as alcohol abuse can elicit conflict with loved ones and eventually lead to the deterioration of such relationships. With regards to an individual’s physical health, the overconsumption of alcohol can permanently damage organs, cause disease, and render a person more vulnerable to certain types of cancer. Furthermore, an addiction to alcohol increases a person’s chances for overdose and death as a result of overdose if treatment is not sought. Pertaining to one’s mental health, any existing mental health symptoms can worsen over time and new psychiatric conditions can manifest if effective treatment is not implemented. By seeking care for an addiction to substances, such as alcohol, the previously mentioned consequences can be avoided and those who abuse alcohol can come to realize a life that is productive and meaningful.

Our rehab center includes a 15-bed behavioral health inpatient unit, and a 124-bed behavioral health residential treatment center, both of which are situated on the same campus. Residents who require immediate stabilization due to the presence of psychiatric concerns or those who are in need of medical detoxification services can receive these interventions prior to engaging in our treatment center’s residential care. When residents present to our alcohol abuse rehab with alcohol in their systems, the first step in their treatment will be to undergo the medical detox services offered at our inpatient program so that their bodies can become rid of the toxic substance. This period of detoxification is monitored by medical personnel in order to ensure that individuals remain safe and as comfortable as possible during the process. Residents will also engage in a number of therapeutic interventions during their time in inpatient treatment. Following detox and completion of treatment at our inpatient unit, residents will then engage in comprehensive treatment at our rehab’s behavioral health residential treatment center.

Treatment for substance abuse concerns, including the abuse of alcohol, is delivered through Sierra Tucson’s Addictions and Co-Occurring Disorder Program. Offered within our behavioral health residential treatment center, services supplied in this treatment plan are designed to elicit the most favorable outcomes for all residents. Our reputation as a leading drug addiction rehab center stems from our clinical excellence and the compassionate care that we afford to everyone who seeks our services. Our holistic approach to treatment respects the dignity of each individual while offering a therapeutic environment that is fully conducive to healing of the mind, body, and spirit. Treatment focuses on addressing each resident’s presenting problems, as well as underlying issues that exacerbate their struggles. It is our belief that, as residents gain new communication skills and learn to build healthy relationships, they can make sound decisions for a healthy quality of life and form deeper connections with others.

The types of services you receive will be determined by your treatment team. Using a biopsychosocial and spiritual approach to care, residents engaged in the Addictions and Co-Occurring Disorder treatment plan can partake in the following treatment methods, of which are outlined in each resident’s individualized treatment plan, as well as in our treatment center’s daily treatment schedules:

Medication management: When individuals are struggling with the presence of a co-occurring disorder in addition to their addiction to alcohol, the implementation of psychotropic medications may be incorporated into their overall plan of care at our rehab. The need for such medications, however, is always determined on a case-by-case basis. Residents who are engaged in the Addictions and Co-Occurring Disorder Program will have the opportunity to meet with either a psychiatrist or qualified physician at a minimum of once per week so that any medications that have been prescribed can be monitored for therapeutic effectiveness and any necessary changes can be made.

Individual therapy: Master’s level clinicians and/or licensed psychologists at our alcohol addiction treatment center offer individual therapy sessions with residents several times per week depending upon the treatment modality that is being used. All residents are guaranteed, however, that a minimum of one individual session will take place each week. Each resident’s therapist will be assigned to them depending on the identified presenting concerns, the therapeutic approach that will be used in order to effectively address those concerns, and the specific training that the therapist possesses. These sessions occur in a confidential, one-to-one setting where the resident is afforded the opportunity to discuss their progress in treatment, address any concerns that may arise, and process various feelings they are experiencing.

Group therapy: At the time that residents are admitted into the Addictions and Co-Occurring Disorder treatment plan at our rehab, they are assigned to a small group of peers, of whom are engaged in the same treatment plan. This group will meet together for therapy sessions four times per week. In addition to serving as a general process group, topics that are covered during these group sessions may include, but are not limited to:

  • Didactic lectures

Continuing Care

Continuing care and levels of treatment for alcohol addiction

Once a resident engages in services to treat an addiction to alcohol and co-occurring concerns at our alcohol addiction rehab, a comprehensive continued care plan is devised so that they can remain successful once treatment is complete. Those partaking in the services meet with continued care staff to assess each individual’s needs and plan for discharge. Those engaged in the residential treatment at our center meet with the same continued care staff and regional outreach specialists and partake in lectures and one-on-one planning sessions to ensure quality referrals and to establish any follow-up appointments that may be required once they have been discharged.

Furthermore, residents exiting the residential treatment, along with their family members, can benefit from The Connections Program. This treatment plan includes 12-month-long case management services that are in place to offer ongoing and substantial support to former residents. A representative from this treatment plan contacts residents 48 hours after they are discharged and is available to assist these individuals in seeking and receiving the additional services they need in order to remain successful in the process of healing and recovery.

Lastly, former residents can take part in the Alumni Services affiliated with our rehab. These services include groups offered through outpatient centers, of which are located across the United States.
