Willingway

1 Review

Willingway is a treatment center that specializes in substance abuse and addiction. Delivering patients and families the highest quality addiction treatment care with dignity, compassion and respect is the mission. A nationally-recognized alcohol and drug addiction treatment program, Willingway promotes a lifelong continuing recovery program so that patients may enjoy a life of sobriety and success.

Willingway Focus:

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Willingway’s experienced medical staff addresses the occurrence of dual diagnosis by assessing the alcohol and drug history, mental health diagnosis, and family of origin heredity/history. During the intensive inpatient program, the focus is to help patients establish a true mental health and chemical free baseline. This approach allows patients and clinical staff the opportunity to more accurately partner with one another in understanding their mental health and substance abuse issues.

Rehab Services:

Vivitrol used for Addiction Recovery

Vivitrol has proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of opiate and alcohol abuse, especially when complimented with an effective rehab program. Vivitrol is a non-narcotic, non-addictive medication approved by the FDA that is used to suppress a person's cravings for a substance.

Naltrexone

Naltrexone is often used along with psychiatric counseling and social support to treat individuals undergoing drug or alcohol rehabilitation treatment.

What does Willingway offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

Detoxification is the most intensive level of care Willingway provides. This includes comfortable detoxification by qualified, specialty trained addiction medicine physicians. Willingway’s tenured team of addiction professionals will work with individuals to achieve a true mental/physical health baseline. For over 40 years, Willingway has provided the safest and most consistent method of medical intervention available. Accredited by the Joint Commission (JCAHO) continuously since 1974, Willingway is licensed as a specialty hospital with a high level of medical sophistication and addiction medicine physicians on staff. This makes Willingway ideal for complicated cases such as high level methadone addiction and other difficult detoxifications. Detoxification usually precedes inpatient treatment

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.

Outpatient (OP)

Willingway’s intensive Outpatient Program offers another level of care for the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction. The program is designed for individuals in a stage of chemical dependency that may not require treatment in an inpatient setting but want to achieve sobriety in a less-intensive, confidential setting. The program can also benefit patients who have completed inpatient treatment but who need continued care to make the transition more smoothly back to the home environment.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

The Inpatient Residential Treatment Program follows Detoxification. The program is structured to focus on emotional stabilization, education about the illness, development of recovery resources and skills, and personal adoption of recovery principles.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

The four-day Willingway Family Workshop participants will learn how to initiate positive changes in their lives, which will encourage healing and a foundation for the recovery process. They will gain an understanding of how accepting too much responsibility for the addict/alcoholic has not only caused pain and chaos in their own lives, but can be a barrier to their loved one’s recovery.

Aftercare Support

Upon completion of the Inpatient Residential Program, the patient is encouraged to maintain a relationship with Willingway through participation in the Continuing Care Program. An important feature of this program is an individualized written Continuing Care plan that includes recommendations to the patient and family members for maintaining the patient’s drug and alcohol free lifestyle. A Continuing Care plan is offered to each patient returning home from treatment or those enrolled in Willingway’s Intensive Outpatient Program. The plan is an excellent resource for those new to recovery, as well as family and friends, to begin to integrate recovery into their daily lives at home and to learn vital information about local AA, NA and Al-Anon support groups. The Continuing Care Program can also be utilized as a valuable recovery resource for family members while your loved one is in treatment at Willingway.

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.
