At this point in life, the fear of the unknown may be overwhelming. It is difficult to put enough trust in an individual or organization to agree to enter a treatment program. We want our clients to be informed about what it is like to go to Miracles In Action and what we’re about. Our goal is to make our clients as comfortable as possible and ease the typical stress of the drug and alcohol treatment process.
There are so many complicated reasons that we turn to drugs and alcohol. Meanwhile, life becomes harder and harder to manage, until we simply can’t manage it anymore. Sometimes, it is someone around us who makes that determination, but sometimes we come to that point all on our own. And as the big book states, it usually leads us to one of three places – jails, hospitals, or death.
For a lucky few, we’ll have escaped addiction without having to endure the humiliation of jails and institutions, or the finality of death. We’ll have come to a realization that we need help long before we come to that point. Finding oneself in this place in life is uncomfortable for sure, but it will likely save one’s life too.
We thought we’d share a few things about what it's like to go to Miracles In Action. Here are a few common questions that we answer every day about what treatment is like and how we help our clients battle their addictions and find long-term recovery.
1. Compassionate and skilled providers
When you go to Miracles In Action, we believe that one of the most important aspects of addiction treatment is finding providers who believe in our clients. Providers must pull out all of the stops for the client’s successful recovery. Addiction treatment isn’t about judging and criticizing those who struggle with addiction. In fact, harsh and condemning methods of treatment often play a big part in unsuccessful treatment outcomes. Kindness and compassionate approaches work best to reach those who struggle with the pain and traumas that accompany addiction.
Our staff is not only compassionate and helpful, but they’re also highly trained and experienced in the latest evidence-based treatment methods. We’re equipped to handle addictions and most co-occurring disorders with highly trained state-licensed doctors and clinicians on the premises.
2. A welcoming home-like setting
Walking through the doors at Miracles In Action is in itself, a calming and transforming experience. The environment is designed to remove any distractions to sobriety or triggers to relapse. We’ve worked hard to ensure that every guest that will go to Miracles In Action receives the greatest opportunity to focus on their recovery.
3. Modern evidence-based treatment
Going to Miracles in Action isn’t just about sitting in groups and lectures all day. There is so much more to recovery than that. Sure, we have group times where our clients can interact with others and learn to rebuild relationships. However, we also walk through the difficult parts of recovery with our clients to help them adjust to the challenges of daily life in recovery.
Our team of healthcare providers and therapists has decades of experience treating addictions. We are well equipped to handle any addiction through a variety of treatment modalities. Our goal is for our clients to be comfortable, learn new healthy life coping skills, and be able to use those skills to achieve the goals they set out for themselves in recovery.
4. Strong support for co-occurring disorders
Addiction rarely occurs on its own without some type of complicating factor. It is very typical for those who struggle with addiction to also suffer from depression, anxiety, traumas, and other concerns. In order to give our clients the greatest opportunity possible for successful recovery, we address any possible threat to sobriety.
Our staff consists of board-certified physicians, state-licensed therapists, counselors, coaches, and spiritual advisors. Altogether, our professional team has treated nearly every potential combination of addiction and co-occurring disorders. For questions regarding the capabilities of our treatment team, please contact us at (818) 287-0080 and we will be happy to address any concerns directly.
5. Outpatient and aftercare programs that advance long-term recovery
For those who go to Miracles In Action, treatment doesn’t end when a drug and alcohol program is completed. Our clients often take advantage of our family therapy and sober living options that help solidify the new coping skills learned in drug and alcohol treatment. Research has shown conclusively that a greater length and depth of support vastly improves treatment outcomes.
Our aftercare programs offer an excellent way to put newfound recovery tools into practice in a safe, structured setting. As our clients begin to ease back into a regular lifestyle, they’ll have the opportunity to find or resume work, attend school, and begin assuming family roles once again. As part of a long-term treatment plan combined with our other services, our aftercare programs help our clients build on the recovery that they’ve already accrued and maximize the benefit from their stay with us.
