Long Term Treatment

We offer long term treatment for alcoholism and chemical addiction. Time is often the critical factor for full rehabilitation and the length of stay is based upon individual progress in treatment.

It takes time to:

  • Heal the brain functions and nervous system
  • Develop new mental habits
  • Practice new life skills
  • Heal family relationships
  • Understand the 12 step programs and principles

Our abstinence-based treatment model is dedicated to providing a comprehensive array of services. As soon as a client is admitted we refer to them as a student as they will be learning how to live a new and sober life. Time is often the critical factor for successful rehabilitation and the length of stay is based upon individual progress in treatment. Our highly structured, long term model was developed to treat the chronic relapser.

We develop individualized treatment plans encompassing dual diagnosis analysis. Time away from substance abuse has a way of separating out what is a psychiatric issue and what is a behavioral concern. Each individual will have a dedicated counselor for one-on-one therapy and be evaluated for specific group therapies. Our staff is the heart and soul of our organization and has over 500 years of collective sobriety. It is comprised of highly competent and experienced professionals including:

  • Licensed & Certified Addiction Counselors
  • ASAM Certified Medical Personnel
  • 24 hour Nursing Department
  • Psychologist and Addiction Psychiatrist
  • Family Therapist
  • Trauma Specialists
  • Eating Disorder Counselor
  • Certified Nutritionist

Our multi-disciplinary team provides counseling for eating disorders, trauma, anger, gambling and more. We recognize that Process Addictions are the number one cause attributed to relapse and we address them during Primary Treatment.

Alina Lodge puts an emphasis on healing the "whole" person. Spirituality, exercise and healthy nutrition are all important aspects of our programs. To that end, we offer an equipped exercise room, yoga, meditation, religious services of many denominations, as well as access to a certified nutritionist in order to maintain optimum health.
