Deciding to embark on the path to addiction recovery is an act of great courage and an important step towards a healthier, fulfilled life. As you advance through our evidence-based, holistic approaches at Rubicon Recovery, you’ll begin to see that this is the right path to take for successful recovery.

What to Expect in the First 24 Hours

We understand that stepping into an unknown environment full of unfamiliar faces can stir feelings of uncertainty and nervousness. That’s why, at Rubicon Recovery, your comfort is our priority as you adjust to this new phase of your life.

During your first 24 hours at our facility, you can expect:

One of our dedicated counselors will then meet with you to establish your recovery objectives and work out a schedule for meetings throughout your stay.
Meet the Staff: You will meet our empathetic, skilled staff members who will guide and support you through your recovery journey. Their compassion, advice, and encouragement will keep you inspired, even on difficult days.
Understand the Program: You’ll become familiar with our comprehensive treatment program that combines the 12-Step approach with cognitive behavioral therapy, holistic therapy, alternative non-12 step programs, and more. Our plans are flexible, allowing you to actively participate in customizing a treatment plan that fits your needs perfectly.
Insurance Verification: We’ll confirm your insurance coverages or discuss other possible financial solutions. We strive to make sure that all our clients get the treatment they need regardless of their financial situation.
Facility Tour: As part of your orientation, we will tour you around the facility to help you familiarize and adapt to your surroundings. Our facility offers clean, comfortable private or semi-private rooms and designated areas for socializing and solitude.
Question and Answer: We encourage and welcome all your questions, whether they relate to visitation times, regular routines, or allowed personal possessions. Don’t hesitate to voice any concerns or ask questions – we are here to make you feel as comfortable as possible.

Customized Treatment Just for You

Although the admissions process may appear daunting, it is just a means for us to know you better and for you to ascertain that we are genuinely committed to your recovery. At Rubicon Recovery, we want to see you succeed, and the more we understand about you, the better prepared we are to offer the best level of care for you.

Detoxification at Rubicon Recovery

As part of the initial admission process, you will receive detailed information about our detoxification program. In some cases, before beginning the rehabilitation phase, you may need to first detox.

We are cognizant that many people have concerns about detox and withdrawal. Therefore, during drug and alcohol detox, we provide round-the-clock medical supervision to ensure your safety and comfort.

Most clients experience varying degrees of withdrawal symptoms during detox, depending on the substance abused and the length of their addiction. We assure you that our attentive staff will be there to offer support and encouragement throughout the entire process. If necessary, medication can be administered to help manage the symptoms.

Detox is a critical part of the recovery process from addiction. It helps the body to eliminate all remaining toxins left by substance abuse. After detox, you’ll experience fewer cravings, which will allow you to focus on gaining the necessary skills for sustained sobriety.

Creating A New Path at Rubicon Recovery

The fundamental elements of our treatment process are centered on fostering personal evolution through self-awareness. During treatment, you’ll discover how your thought patterns and behaviors can feed into addiction. We offer a range of therapeutic treatments, such as:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy
Group and individual counseling
Psychodrama therapy
Biosound therapy
Fitness and nutrition
Music and art therapy
Recreational therapy
Holistic therapy
Aftercare programs
The cornerstone of our services is recognizing that everyone’s response to treatment is unique. We design personalized programs to focus on each client’s distinct talents and challenges, aiming to facilitate mental, spiritual, and physical healing for long-term recovery.

Rediscover Yourself at Rubicon Recovery

Entering our addiction treatment program marks the beginning of a journey of self-discovery. You’ll gain deep insights into the root causes of your substance abuse. Armed with this understanding, you will discern which changes to make to prevent a relapse. With a clearer mind and healthier body, you will repossess the drive to build the future you’ve always desired.

At Rubicon Recovery, our mission is to help you reclaim your true self. We understand that addiction can erode your self-esteem and shatter your self-worth. Hence, we employ the right mix of counseling, education, and support to help you unveil your real potential and start enjoying a fulfilling life.
