There are ways to reduce the risk of substance use and relapse, and one of those ways is through proper prevention options. When you work with us at Crestview Recovery, we can show you the variety of substance use preventions we offer. You’ll learn tips and techniques to make you feel better, safer, and more in control of your situation, which can help you live clean and sober. There are many choices, and some of them may work better for you than others. Our trained and professional staff can help you find the options and preventative measures that will give you the best chance at a healthy and robust future.
Choosing the Right Substance Use Preventions
For most people, the goal of any of our substance use preventions is to keep children and teens from experimenting with drugs and alcohol. Those are fundamental goals, and ones that we share. However, there are other types of prevention concerns, and those can come about for adults. In a lot of cases, these measures are designed to prevent a person from relapsing and going back to old ways where they used substances for recreation or as a coping mechanism of life. We want to help people live clean and sober lives. If they’ve recovered from substance use, it’s crucial they stay that way. Some of the treatment options we offer include:
- Individual therapy
- Dual diagnosis therapy
- Trauma therapy
- Extended care (90-day program)
- Partial hospitalization
- Intensive outpatient
With all of those options, there are ways to focus on both treatment and prevention of substance use issues. Our 30-bed facility and dedicated, caring staff are here and ready to help people who need to move toward sober living and develop tools and techniques to stay that way. We treat men and women who are 18 and older and take insurance-based payment for your convenience. We also understand that there are limited treatment options in the Pacific Northwest, and we work hard to fill a role for those who live in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana so that they can get proper treatment close to home.
The Right Facility Means Better Prevention
Substance use preventions include programs for teens and adults that showcase the dangers of drug use and abuse — including the use of alcohol. These are typically research-based programs, which work well for younger people who are just learning about the potential risks of substances. For adults, though, the prevention of substance use is often better handled by following cultural and societal norms. In other words, spending time with people who don’t use substances makes it less likely that a person will use substances. Surrounding oneself with the right people can make a big difference.
The same is true for the right facility where you or a loved one might seek substance use treatment. We are Joint Commission accredited. Moreover, we offer an amenities program that includes skiing, snowboarding, and white water rafting for your enjoyment. Those are important ways to interact with others who are on your same journey and hold one another accountable. Many people who recover and are living a clean and sober life change their friend groups, as well, to create a higher level of prevention and reduce the chances of a relapse. That can make the future better for them, and also reduce stress.
