Nearly every drug dependent individual expects that they can quit abusing various substances without help, and many attempt to quit on their own without addiction treatment. Most of those attempts end in failure to achieve long-term abstinence from drugs. Numerous studies have shown that prolonged substance abuse results in significant changes in brain function that remain long after the individual stops using drugs. Those drug induced changes in brain function usually develop several behavioral consequences, including the compulsion to abuse drugs despite the consequences, which is the defining property of drug addiction.
Addiction treatment is for people who are abusing or have become dependent on any mood altering substance. We are capable of treating all kinds of substance addictions. With our individualized drug treatment planning, educational and therapy process groups, individual and family therapy, each patient’s drug treatment program is designed to maximize their recovery potential.
The methods of treating addiction vary as widely as individual personalities, but the most basic and common goal of any addiction treatment program is to give back the tools required to live a healthy, addiction free life. During treatment, addicts learn about their disease and its effects on themselves as well as those closest to them. The battle is within, but addiction is so powerful and debilitating, the assistance of caring professionals increases the chances of success ten fold.
Because each patient is different, counselors take time and get to know a recovering addict on a personal level. By understanding the different nature of each individual’s addiction, a drug rehab counselor can create a customized treatment plan that will systematically address the addiction and lead to an individual’s long term recovery. The job of the drug rehab counselor is to initiate the transition of responsibility back onto the patient being treated. Our drug rehab program conditions the patient for re-entering the “real world”, where decision making, good decision making, will inevitably be made by the patient alone.
Before entering a rehab treatment program, a patient must begin with detoxification, to safely clear the body of any toxins that have built up over the course of one’s addiction. Because detox is frequently the most challenging task an addict may face, it needs to be done in a safe environment as well as under our professional care.

Dual diagnosis is the discovery and treatment of a patient who has found themselves battling two very challenging diseases simultaneously. This often includes an addiction such as drug or alcohol addiction and a severe emotional or mental disorder, such as schizophrenia, anxiety or post-traumtic stress disorder. Using a combination of therapies, including detox, group and individual therapies and mental health services, and physical rehab, Unity is able to identify these disorders, which are often the root cause for the addiction, and treat them while also treating the physical addiction.
