Levels Of Care

Medically Assisted Detox: In order to withdraw from certain substances and for patients that have been using an addictive substance for a longer period of time, it may be necessary for patients to undergo medically supervised detoxification Woodlake will administer the appropriate medications to prevent severe withdrawal symptoms. At an appropriate time during the detoxification process Woodlake’s professional staff will conduct a comprehensive assessment and evaluation to determine the best level of treatment for the individual client. During this phase of treatment patient’s are introduced to educational information about the disease of addiction and 12-Step recovery. Inpatient: Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient\'s individual requirements. Woodlake Addiction Recovery Center’s holistic approach affords that process to begin starting from the initial evaluation, individualized treatment plan, specific tasks and assignments correlating all aspects of the personality, to a discharge plan incorporating those learned behaviors into a supportive recovery based environment. Aftercare Support: Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn\'t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Intensive Outpatient: Woodlake’s Intensive Outpatient Program, focuses on the disease concept which affects the individual physically, psychologically, and spiritually, and is designed for patients who are new to recovery , completed Woodlake’s Inpatient/ Residential program, or have relapsed. Woodlake Addiction Recovery Center’s IOP includes a comprehensive evaluation and other assessment as needed to develop a treatment plan to meet and address individual needs. IOP clients are engaged in the recovery process while continuing to maintain their daily lives at work, school, or home and supports continued engagement with their family. Treatment consists of a semi-structured environment providing guidance through group psychotherapy with individual and family sessions as needed. Patients are given assignments to address the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual deficits that accompany addiction.

Clinical Services

Family Therapy: Alcoholism/Addiction is a family disease with negative implications for the alcoholic/addict and their family members. The addicted person produces significant stress on members of their families or significant others, who often in response, adopt unhealthy emotions or roles as means to cope with the addict and their using. Conflict in a marriage or with children may precipitate excessive drinking or drug use and thus supports the using pattern of behavior in the addicted person. Consequently, the addiction serves as a symptom of family dysfunction, a method for coping with family stress creating more dysfunction. This vicious and destructive merry-go-round has to be stopped in order for families to begin an emotionally healthy way of life. Families are invited to attend a Family Weekend to receive education regarding the disease of addiction for family members and participation in family group sessions. Woodlakes Family Education model focuses on the disease concept, spirituality, the loss of personalities, defenses, neurological chemistry of addiction, the principles of the 12 step programs, and includes specific task to assist with redefining self and recovery. The Family Education group work is designed to allow the family members to explore their pain in the midst of the addiction, openly and honestly discuss resentments, determine proper amends and realistic expectations, and devise specific means to continue the recovery process while improving the relationship and enhanced communication. Group Therapy: Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members. Individual Therapy: In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life. Trauma Therapy: Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client\'s past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.


Alcoholism: The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings. Dual Diagnosis: Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person\'s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Mental Health and Substance Abuse: A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track. Opioid Addiction: Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.
