Levels of Care
Medical Stabilization/Withdrawal management
Withdrawal from a substance can be a challenging and debilitating process. At Wellbridge we use proven interventions, including medication management, to help alleviate the physical symptoms of what is commonly known as “detoxification.” Psychotherapies and family involvement are also introduced early in this phase to foster the coping and relapse prevention skills that lay the groundwork for a successful recovery.
Family Support: Integral to the treatment process
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.
Wellbridge offers a comprehensive strength-based Family Program grounded in a family’s need to accommodate and support a lasting change. The program offers concrete skill-based techniques and coping skills. We strongly encourage participation in individual family sessions, multi-family sessions and support groups.

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).
Alcoholism is the most severe problem associated with the drinking of alcohol-associated with an
uncontrollable strong urge to drink. It is also known as alcohol dependence because addicts place
drinking above all other obligations and may forsake activities they previously enjoyed. Their
bodies mainly have developed physical tolerance of alcohol, and as such, the individuals may get
withdrawal symptoms if they stop drinking. They continue to drink despite experiencing adverse
interpersonal or social effects.
Opioid addiction is a compulsive and robust urge to continually take a class of drugs that have
the opioid chemical composition. Opioid drugs provoke the release of endorphin and dopamine
neurotransmitters in the body, which causes one to feel euphoric. They include legal prescription
painkillers such as methadone, fentanyl, and oxycodone as well as illegal drugs like heroin.
Continued opioid use even under a prescription affects the brain chemistry making the body to
demand more to get the same high feeling
Mental Health and Substance Abuse:
Mental health and substance abuse issues are commonly interlinked, and when they occur
together, it is referred to as a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder. It is normally characterized
by drug addiction and a mental health disorder such as bipolar disease or anxiety. Both drug
abuse and mental health disorders have individual and unique symptoms. However, if any of the
problems are left untreated, it triggers the other problem to worsen.
Dual diagnosis is when one has a mental health issue alongside a substance abuse problem. It is
also referred to as a co-occurring disease characterized by individual symptoms for both
problems. However, the two issues tend to be linked because when one goes untreated, it triggers
the other problem to worsen. When both are ignored, they increase in severity at a heightened
rate, making one’s life unbearable.
