My experience at Desert Hope played a remarkable part in my life. That is why I want to share it with anybody who has been struggling with alcohol, drug or any kind of dependency for a period of time and also share it with those who might want to support another person in need of help.
Shortly after finishing my assessment over the phone with American Addiction Centers, they scheduled my flight and I was on my way to West coast within hours! A staff member picked me up at the airport around midnight. During the first few days, caring medical staff watched over me. Since I spent some time in a hospital prior to my arrival, I chose not to detox at Desert Hope, but I have heard good feedback on that from other clients.
Overall, the facility is absolutely astonishing, beautiful and spacious. My room looked luxurious, my bed was confortable and the bathroom was big. Because of great housekeeping service available for the clients, the facility was always clean and neat. The facility has a gym, art room, patios outside and even a musical room with a grand piano.
I have been to various treatment centers, but the program has a unique and holistic perspective on every aspect of the disease called addiction. I would like to share my insight on their treatment and how it worked for me.
First, DH cares about PHYSICAL well-being. My weight was 75lb upon starting my treatment and I was out of shape. The staff members set me up with a nutritional specialist and counselors that helped to look healthy and properly gain weight. I received useful suggestions on how to work out as well and I had an opportunity to apply them during my treatment. They had a personal trainer and yoga instructors. Furthermore, if you are a client that shows some progress, you can get a one hour massage. I personally utilized any opportunity to exercise as it made me feel much better.
Of course, my body had to be medically examined and restored to its balanced state. The nurses were knowledgeable and doctors were professional. I was open to their suggestions about my further treatment and was very satisfied with medications they introduced me to during my treatment at DH.
Second, the program at DH addresses PSYCOLOGICAL aspect of the disease. It helped me with my MENTAL illness and EMOTIONAL disturbance. I had both group and one-on-one sessions with counselors, behavioral therapists and psychiatrists. During individual sessions, I felt safe and welcomed; I was always honest and open about my problems, which made this session work for me tremendously well. I could finally concentrate on what’s most important to me - my inner self. I highly recommend participating in all groups because there was so much useful information I got out every time I attended one.
Third, the program helped me to start growing SPIRITUALLY. Besides 12 Step program, you may try other approaches such as Smart Recovery, Rational Recovery, and others. DH also brings worship services and people from churches to the facility. For me, attending meetings, listening to the solution of people in recovery, sharing my experience and realizing similarities with my thinking, actions and emotions based on other personal stories.
Lastly, there is a SOCIAL aspect of recovery. Before I was discharged, I made a decision to stay in Las Vegas. Caring case managers helped me to find a sober living house, introduced me to local people in recovery, assisted me with admission into Intensive Outpatient Program, familiarized me with the best recovery clubs and meetings in the area and even recommended me what doctors I could get referrals to.
Also, if your family is willing to participate in your recovery, DH offers therapeutic programs, at least every month. It would be very beneficial for you to include important people in the treatment process.
Finally, I would like to emphasize an important factor of such great success of any program at American Addiction Centers. The majority of people working there are also in recovery, and each and every one of them is evidence to the fact that addiction is a serious but TREATABLE disease. Personally, I have never felt so accepted and understood at any other treatment facility but Desert Hope.
I highly recommend you calling their number so that you could find out what would be the best option for you or your loved ones.
To sum up, the treatment at Desert Hope incorporated all aspects of my well-being by analyzing not just physical but nutritional, emotional, mental, social, environmental and spiritual values. They are extremely helpful in teaching me what lifestyle I should have in order to stay clean, healthy, strong and happy.
At the end of my treatment at Desert Hope, I had faith, feeling of support, a solid plan for the nearest future and positive attitude upon whichever was coming next.
The day I left the facility, I was no longer shaking, my skin and my body looked healthy, my thinking was less foggy, my mind was clear and I even could play my favorite Chopin’s nocturne nearly as well as I used to... 13 years ago.
