Intervention is an effective technique families can use to help a loved one suffering from drug abuse, chemical dependency or alcohol addiction. Even though many clients do not require an intervention, feel secure in knowing this service is available if needed. Intervention is not an emotional ambush or an uncaring attack. When done correctly alcohol and drug interventions employ the power of love and sincere concern to overcome denial and get your loved one into treatment.
A successful intervention is the result of careful planning, preparation and technique. Often people think they’ve tried everything, but frequently family members have been inadvertently working against each other. If your friend or family member is struggling with committing to getting help, don’t worry, we will help you through the process.
A medical drug and alcohol detox can be a tremendous help to begin the recovery process because it minimizes the pain and discomfort of withdrawing. Without professional help and medical attention the detox process is often never completed because of the intense pain and discomfort the addict feels which causes the person to return to using.
Some drugs like heroin, meth and prescription drugs such as – Hydrocodone, Oxycontin, Lortab, Vicodin, Xanax can cause an intense physical dependence; even to the point of altering brain chemistry so that the body believes it needs the drug to function properly. Extremely painful and often dangerous withdrawal symptoms can be experienced when alcohol use is stopped. We also take special care handling methamphetamine detox and cocaine detox situations.
Not everyone will require a medical detox. For your safety, we offer a free medical detoxification assessment to accurately make this determination.
Furthermore, as a Utah residential treatment center, we specialize in drug and alcohol rehab, addiction and mental health in Utah. Cold Creek is a Utah rehab center and serves clients mostly from the western United States, including those suffering from addiction in California, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, Montana and New Mexico.
Medical Intake Evaluation
Upon entering Cold Creek, each client is seen by our Medical Director who performs a physical examination, health history interview, a TB test and vitamin B12 shot. In addition to the intake exam, each client meets at least weekly with the doctor. These meetings allow clients to address any issues regarding medications, sleep and general physical well-being.
Someone who has both an alcohol or drug problem and a mental health disorder is said to have a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis. Co-occurring disorders are fairly common but present a greater level of complexity in diagnosis and treatment than addiction or mental health issues alone. Addicts commonly self-medicate or abuse prescription medication to deal with the anxiety or depression resulting from these psychiatric problems. To recover successfully, both issues must be addressed.
Our team is experienced in diagnosing and treating dual diagnosis clients and creating treatment plans that meet the unique challenges of these complex cases including; bi-polar disorder, ADD and ADHD, trauma (PTSD), depression, anxiety, manic and personality disorders and many other issues. In addition, we have extensive experience treating most other addictions, like gambling addiction, eating disorders, sex addiction, internet addiction, and pornography addiction.
Individualized Treatment Plan
Each person and their circumstances are unique and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating addiction. Cold Creek offers a truly individualized treatment experience for each client. The individual treatment plan is developed after clients receive multiple comprehensive assessments that include psychological testing, addiction severity indexing, neuropsychological testing, IQ and reasoning assessments, and dual-diagnosis assessment. These results determine which therapist and counselor the client will be paired with and direct the scope and duration of treatment.
Individualized treatment is most achievable in smaller facilities that treat 10 clients or less. At Cold Creek we maintain a ratio of twelve staff to eight clients and insure plenty of interaction, attention, individual counseling, and insures that no one gets lost in a crowd. Our clients know there is always someone available to help.
45-Day Residential Treatment Program
The treatment programs at Cold Creek are the culmination of over eight decades of addiction and mental health treatment experience and education. The treatment programs at Cold Creek are based on the Bio-Psycho-Social and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy treatment models, this and the specific types of therapies are discussed in Residential Treatment.
Addiction treatment is about resolving complex psychological issues, education, relapse prevention, restoring family relationships, and creating an aftercare plan to optimize post-treatment success.
Our facility is a private and peaceful home situated on almost an acre of beautifully landscaped property. Even most discriminating person will feel at home amidst our beautiful surroundings. This is a good opportunity to make a distinction. Cold Creek is not an exotic “resort” or “destination” type program. Meaning, the facility is not situated on the beach or other vacation type location. In our experience “location” increases the price of treatment and not the quality.
In choosing Cold Creek Wellness Center’s location, we were primarily concerned with our proximity to essential services and access to public transportation. This choice has allowed us to offer one of the most comprehensive and individualized treatment programs to our clients.
Our treatment program has six main goals:
1. Eliminate all physical and psychological dependencies
2. Identify and treat any co-occurring mental health issues
3. Improve clients’ emotional, spiritual, nutritional, and physical health
4. Introduce clients to the Cognitive Behavioral therapies and the 12-Steps
5. Provide education and counseling to families who have been affected by addiction
6. Plan and implement aftercare plans to support a lifetime of sobriety
To fully understand why our treatment programs are so successful it is important to discuss “comprehensive treatment” and “continuity of care.” These are more than just clever marketing terms; they are the framework and foundation of our program. As you will learn, understanding comprehensive treatment and continuity of care can very literally mean the difference between a successful life of sobriety and relapse.
Comprehensive treatment means we provide all of the therapies and services necessary for the complete treatment of behavioral health and addictions disorders. Changing long-term habits takes time. There is no substitute. That’s why clients who complete our entire program are with us for at least 135 days.
Continuity of Care is a cooperative relationship where the same clinical team seamlessly handles all aspects of a client’s addiction treatment from beginning to end and is a hallmark of addiction treatment only found in a handful of the best treatment programs.
Finally, continuity of care focuses on developing a long-term client counselor partnership in which our treatment team knows the patient’s history from experience. This allows our staff to efficiently integrate all information and decisions from a whole-client perspective without extensive investigation or record review. This serves as a powerful resource after treatment, when clients always know where they can call or come for help when they need it.
Six-Week Family Program with Private Family Counseling
The reach of addiction extends far beyond the individual. Addiction can destroy families. That’s why we include a six-week family program with our residential and outpatient treatment programs. The program is available to family members, and even close friends of those in treatment. Family involvement provides clients with a stronger, more knowledgeable support network. Our goal is to educate members of the person’s support network on topics such as: enabling or codependent behaviors that tend to impede the addict’s recovery. Working with the family also allows the therapists to understand the whole picture and any ongoing or unhealthy situations that may increase the chance of a relapse.
Prior to leaving treatment, clients work closely with their counselor to develop an aftercare plan that addresses career objectives, educational goals, identifying and planning for individual triggers, behaviors and patterns of thought that might sabotage recovery. The aftercare plan is the client’s roadmap to recovery, wherein they combine the knowledge they gain in treatment with our experience gained through years of successful recovery. The aftercare plan and 90-day Intensive Outpatient Programs are fundamental components of the continuity of care provided by Cold Creek.
90-Day Intensive Outpatient Program ( IOP )
Cold Creek’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) serves two purposes. First, as a continuing-care and aftercare program for clients who have completed our Residential alcohol and drug treatment program. Second, as a standalone program for individuals who do not require Residential Treatment.
Combining a comprehensive IOP with a residential treatment program is absolutely crucial to a successful recovery. The objective of our IOP is to provide a bridge from the protective environment of residential treatment to the “real world”.
The IOP program at Cold Creek Wellness Center allows for more independence, but at the same time requires that the client is accountable to the program. Each client must complete homework assignments, maintain strict attendance, and pass random drug tests. During IOP, clients participate in equine therapy, work on developing life skills, learn about recovery, stress management, and how to prevent relapse. The counselors address any concerns during individual treatment sessions and monitor each client’s progress in completing the objectives and goals in their aftercare plan. The clients develop a support network and make new friends in recovery. The IOP program is held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings.
Lifetime Aftercare Program
The recovery process doesn’t end when a client completes a treatment program. Even after completing our 90-day IOP program, clients must remain very proactive and committed to maintain their sobriety. This is why as part of our continuity of care we have included a comprehensive aftercare program. Every client who successfully graduates from the treatment program is eligible to attend a weekly IOP meeting for life. Through participating in the aftercare program clients receive the benefit of participating in ongoing education, support groups, and access to a counselor.
