Treatment Process at ARCA
Assessment/consultation – The treatment process at ARCA is specifically designed to address all aspects of addiction. The intake process may seem lengthy, but it is beneficial for a successful recovery in the long run. During an assessment our medical staff will see where the patient is at by asking the following questions:
- What is your drug of choice?
- How long have you been using your drug of choice?
- Is this your first time at rehab?
- Are you on any prescribed medication?
- Do you have any chronic illnesses?
- Are you currently employed?
- Are there any other people in your family who suffer from addiction?
Paperwork – You will also be asked to provide the necessary information and paperwork, such as:
- Medical aid coverage
- Copy of ID
- Letters from doctors for prescription medication or disabilities – if any.
Medical Detox – Withdrawal from substance abuse is a personal journey and the correct support is vital. ARCA offers medicine assisted therapy (M.A.T) along with behavioral therapy to assist with a healthy and successful early recovery. It is vital to remove all toxins out of the body first before recovery can commence. The medication used has proven results and prevents craving and relapses.
