If substance abuse has taken over your life and you now realize that it is time to quit your habit, Steps to Recovery can help you get sober and achieve lasting abstinence. You will first of all need to take part in a supervised detox, which we offer within reach of Exton. While the withdrawal process is one of the hardest parts of recovery, with our help you can successfully complete an alcohol or drug detox to go on to the next stage of rehabilitation. During our specialist rehab programs we will equip you with the coping strategies and skills you need to turn your life around and escape your addiction.
Withdrawing from Drugs and Alcohol
What makes a detox difficult is that when your body is dependent on drugs or alcohol it reacts when you remove its steady supply of these. Your body’s response to detox leads to a variety of withdrawal symptoms, which addicts can find difficult to cope with by themselves. Some of the unpleasant symptoms associated with detoxing that you can expect are:
- Cravings for alcohol and drugs
- Feeling irritable and depressed
- Sweating and tremors
- Muscle aches
- Digestive upset
The exact symptoms you experience depends on your substance of choice, and their severity and duration depends on how heavily you abused alcohol and drugs. Withdrawing from alcohol is especially dangerous, as it can lead to seizures if you try to detox without medical supervision. This isn’t the only reason why you should always seek assistance with detoxing though, as medical staff can also prescribe treatments to ease the associated symptoms, which increases your likelihood of completing the detox. Steps to Recovery can therefore help you to safely and comfortably withdraw from drugs and alcohol.
Treatment After Detox
Withdrawing from a substance is only the beginning of your journey to abstinence. To become sober and stay that way you also need to take part in a structured treatment program that combines a range of addiction therapies to help you deal with temptations and difficulties in your life that may otherwise encourage you to drink or take drugs. Steps to Recovery offers tailored rehab programs that can put you on the right path and meet your goal of sobriety. While we are not the only facility that offers rehabilitation close to Exton, there are several reasons why our program helps more addicts to successfully abstain after an initial detox:
- Our rehab focuses on your needs and as a result therapies are directed to meet these
- We take a holistic view to therapy
- Our program includes the chance to work on the skills you will need after rehab
- We are committed to getting you sober, so offer unlimited support
- We make sure you have a strong support network after you complete treatment
Addiction Therapy to Meet Your Needs
While many substance abuse recovery centers make their clients fit into the set programs of recovery that they offer, at Steps to Recovery we believe that therapy should be tailored to meet your needs and not the other way round. As a result, you will receive a unique program of care that gives you a fighting chance of getting sober, as therapy is directed to address your personal triggers and problems. This therapy includes one to one counseling, where the techniques used are adjusted to meet your requirements to make sure that you get the most out of sessions. Some of the other activities that you take part in during rehab are also selected based on your personal treatment plan.

Therapy that Addresses the Whole Person
You can’t successfully abstain from drugs or alcohol without receiving effective private and group counseling. However, we acknowledge that other therapies are also valuable during your recovery journey, so make these available to you during rehab. For example, you can benefit from complementary therapies that range from acupuncture to yoga, as there is convincing evidence that these treatments enhance quality of life during rehab and offer additional benefits for addiction recovery. One area which complementary therapies can help with is enhancing your mental well-being. You may already suffer from a mental health problem, which is common among people who abuse alcohol and drugs, and often trigger the habit, as well as making it harder for you to quit. By tapping into these additional therapies it is possible to lift your mood and reduce anxious feelings, which can have a positive influence on how well you respond to rehabilitation. Complementary therapies can further support your recovery by offering a useful tool to manage cravings.
Easing Your Transition After Rehab
Returning to life after you receive treatment for substance abuse is not always easy, but we recognize that when you are well equipped with skills, coping with everyday life and integration into society is more manageable. At Steps to Recovery we can help you develop skills needed for day to day living, such as cooking and budgeting, as well as those that will help you to socialize and enter the workplace. You will develop your interpersonal skills during therapy, but we can also give you the chance to work on areas such as resume writing and interview preparation. With these extra skills, relapse is less likely.
Unmatched Support During Rehab
The favorable ratio of clients to staff that we offer means that you will never be short of support during your time with us and few treatment centers near Exton can match this. From your first day in treatment to your last, our team will make sure that they are there to listen to your needs and help you with your difficulties. You needn’t worry about entering rehab, as we will offer you nothing but empathy and encouragement on your journey to abstinence. With experience of substance abuse treatment ourselves, we are well placed to understand your concerns and do our utmost to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
Building a Support Network
Even though we offer aftercare programs, it is important that you have social support to turn to after you complete rehab. Your family can offer you a great deal of encouragement to stay on track, but if your relationship has suffered due to your destructive habits, taking part in family therapy can help to restore strong connections. You will also develop positive relationships with your fellow clients, who are an immense support during addiction treatment and can continue to support you after rehab near Exton.
