A Better Today

Individualized Substance Abuse Treatment

What is Individualized Alcohol & Drug Treatment?

A Better Today has years of experience and constructive feedback to know how important it is to our clients and their families to provide individualized treatment programs. Addiction effects all walks life without prejudice. A client who has been struggling for years with a heroin addiction will need a treatment plan that is different from someone who has been abusing Adderall to pass their college classes.

Soccer moms losing themselves to prescription pills and fathers who have been drowning their sorrows in a bottle need individualized care that will return them back to their families with the tools to succeed. A Better Today believes they need proper treatment that promotes a better quality of life.An individualized treatment plan is a detailed program that guides them through their journey of recovery and rehabilitation.

Our individualized treatment plans are comprehensive from stabilization to aftercare. Master’s level therapists spend one on one time with each client to get to the root of their addiction and adjust their treatment plans according to their progress, co-occurring disorders, length of substance abuse, and other factors that may contribute to their alcohol or drug addiction.

We understand our clients might have needs that require immediate attention and with our highly-qualified staff of therapists and nurses we are able to meet those needs when and if that time arises. Our treatment is client-focused with a special emphasis of family healing. Not many treatment centers provide the quality and attention to detail ABT offers.

A Better Today’s substance abuse treatment center raises the bar for quality care. Offering client-focused treatment for long-lasting recovery.

ABT’s Comprehensive Initial Evaluation: Treating Dual Diagnosis/ Co-occurring Disorder & Substance Abuse

ABT raises the bar higher than most treatment centers is the qualifications of our therapist and the depth of our treatment. Offering master’s level therapists give our clients the opportunity to have a comprehensive evaluation for co-occurring disorders while being treated for a drug and alcohol addiction. Not many treatment facilities can treat major depression, bipolar disorder, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorders(PTSD) while receiving substance abuse treatment.

We recognize that our clients may be suffering from an undiagnosed mental health disorder. Those who do, often develop a dependency on substances like alcohol, heroin, or marijuana to cope with their symptoms. This destructive behavior of self-medicating with drugs and alcohol may appear to allow the individual to feel normal or cope with life’s hardships.

In many cases, the mental disorder contributed to the depth of the addiction. In others, the traumatic experiences commonly associated with drug abuse influenced the mental health disorder. What really matters to ABT is their quality of life is being corrupted by their growing addiction and we have the skilled staff, knowledge, and passion to provide the treatment needed.

ABT’s approach to drug & alcohol treatment offers quality levels of care that result in long-term sobriety. A Better Today’s treatment center for substance abuse treatment is client-focused with comprehensive treatment that properly evaluates each client.

Client-Focused Treatment: The Client Driven Privilege System

A Better Today utilizes a client driven privilege system that enhances the whole treatment experience with rewards based on progress in treatment. ABT understands that many people who go to treatment may not go willingly, may not want to listen because they do not think they have a problem, or only attending treatment due to a court order.

This initial negative perspective hinders progress and causes the person to struggle with the healing process. Instead of throwing our hands up and chalking them up as a lost cause; we motivate them, give them incentives that encourage growth, and give them goals, real tangible goals, that they can set for themselves and achieve if they improve their attitude.

We give them the opportunity to earn rewards by meeting certain requirements. These requirements are no secret, upon enrolling in our treatment program they are given a treatment plan binder that explains exactly what they have to do to receive these rewards based on their treatment plan. ABT can not force a client to care but what we can do is lead by example and show them we inherently care about their progress and their happiness.

As you can see, A Better Today is not claiming that we have reinvented individualized treatment. Actually listening to client’s feedback and constantly improving our approach accordingly, is just one of the ways ABT raises the bar for drug and alcohol treatment higher than most treatment centers.

Achievable Rewards for ABT’s Client Driven Privilege System

  • Massages to relieve aching muscles.
  • Backpacks and water bottles.
  • The opportunity to schedule a haircut.

Trust in ABT to help you through the first steps.

The First Step Toward Recovery: Moving to the Stabilization

Now, more than ever, it is time to focus on you. Putting outside influences like social media and friends aside has never been more important when withdrawing from drugs and alcohol. The first step to overcoming a substance abuse addiction is to rid your body of those toxins. Every client who has walked through our doors have said that the withdrawing step is the most intimidating one. But with feedback comes an area to improve. How can A Better Today make withdrawing from drugs and alcohol less stressful on the body?

Based on client feedback, we crafted our stabilization/detox process to be as comfortable as possible. That includes offering 24-hour nursing staff to ensure vitals are monitored and your needs are met. Not only is our goal to provide a comforting withdrawal process, but doing our best to make the first steps in recovery be a strong foundation for the rest of client’s individualized treatment plan.

During the stabilization process, the body needs time to adjust and cleanse itself of the drugs and alcohol. Many in active addiction believe they will never achieve happiness if they cut drugs and alcohol out of their life. A Better Today asks you to trust us when it comes to this step in your recovery.

Breaking Down A Better Today’s Levels of Care

A Better Today understands that people need options when it comes to treatment for drugs and alcohol. There are many outside influences that effect whether people need PHP, inpatient, outpatient, or residential care. Our goal at ABT is to identify what you need and work with you to achieve it. Drug and alcohol addictions rob people of their life savings, family relationships, and their self-worth; improving their quality of life and providing healing at a family level is what A Better Today is really about.

PHP or Partial Hospitalization Programs

At a PHP level the client will receive intense group and individual therapy. ABT believes it is important to find the root of our client’s addiction to truly recovery from drugs and alcohol. Once our master’s level therapist develop an understanding through one on one therapy, treatment methods like, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and relapse prevention become more effective.

Individual therapy allows the client to work through issues, help clients understand addiction as a manageable disease, and provide a safe space to find themselves again. Group therapy is also a cornerstone for substance abuse treatment. Group therapy allows individuals to benefit from the collective experiences of group members and learn socially acceptable behaviors.

Inpatient Care

Inpatient rehab at A Better Today is an intense learning and self-discovering recovery process. The most comprehensive of our treatment options, ABT’s inpatient rehab offers a 24 hour nursing staff, queen size beds, master’s level therapists, flavorful and hearty meals, goal oriented incentive system, and family day Saturdays. It is all about healing the mind, body, soul and family at A Better Today inpatient rehabilitation.

IOP or Intensive Outpatient Program

ABT’s approach to intensive outpatient programs emphasizes building a strong support network and learning how to manage your addictive urges. Developing a strong support network with group therapy sessions and getting involved with sponsorship programs are important for Intensive outpatient treatment. IOP surrounds our clients with people who understand what they are dealing with, who care about their life in recovery, and encourage them to stay strong and sober.

Learning about addiction as a disease empowers our clients with knowledge. Engaging presentations/sessions on how to identify unhealthy relationships, relapse prevention techniques, practicing effective communication, introductions to the 12 steps, and stress management are important concepts for long lasting recovery.

Finding the Right Type of Treatment is a Phone Call Away

Individualized Treatment Plans & the Types of Therapy ABT Utilizes for Complete Care

When it comes to healing a whole person, there is many different methods of treatment that can make up an effective treatment plan. A Better Today utilizes these therapy methods to inspire healing and self-discovery.

Drug and alcohol addictions numb people to only feel contentment or enjoyment when under the influence. That behavior alone can be destructive to a person’s potential, values, and morals.

A Better Today’s Rehab is the best place for self-discovery and reflecting on what brings true happiness and contentment. By offering a variety of treatment methods to our clients, we provide a level of care that heals the mind, body, soul, and family relationships.

Equine Therapy

A Better Today understands that during active addiction our clients experience awful situations involving other people. Opening up or really feeling comfortable around other people is a step later crossed in life. Working with animals like horses allows for our clients a different method of treatment that encourages healing.

Our graduated clients have provided feedback were their greatest self-actualization moments where done interacting with the horses. Petting, brushing, and feeding them have provided them with contentment and healing they never thought they would achieve. Developing a bond with an animal helped teach the value of healthy relationships. ABT respects our client’s needs for equine therapy and are proud to provide the opportunity.

Nutrition Education

Many would never view nutrition as a therapy or a method of healing. Nutrition is important on two every different levels. When someone abuses drugs for a long period of time, they can have unhealthy eating habits or no eating habits at all. Their body deteriorates under the neglect, making it difficult for the body to function properly and regulate hormones. Getting our clients in the routine of eating regularly is important for introducing new positive behaviors that will help them in their recovery.

Many of our graduate clients have found a passion in the culinary arts. They pursue an education in cooking, or chase after culinary professions that provide them with enjoyment and fulfillment. Becoming a wedding cake decorator or a high-end chef provides life goals that do not require drug abuse; ultimately enhancing our clients life with meaning and purpose.

CBT Therapy

A backbone for ABT’s treatment programs, cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on the root of every addiction to ensure that the core of the problem is addressed. This type of therapy focuses on positive reinforcement, self-esteem building thought patterns, coping skills, and relapse prevention to help build confidence when faced with stressors or cravings. Active addiction breeds destructive and isolating behaviors that tend to lead to suicidal tendencies and demoralizing self-worth. Having a client focused foundation for treatment will ensure that the care received is long lasting and purposeful.

Strength & Yoga Therapy

Substance abuse takes a toll on the body by polluting your organs with toxins and deteriorating your muscle tissue. ABT encourages muscle building, strength training, and yoga therapy during treatment. Where treatment focuses on healing the mind and soul, ABT understands that healing the body is just as important. We encourage a healthy lifestyle during and after treatment to improve the quality of life in recovery.

Developing Life Skills

A Better Today provides our clients with the life skills that are necessary for living a sober life after treatment. Drug and alcohol abuse tends to effect communication skills, askew priorities and responsibilities, and develop unhealthy stress related coping mechanisms. ABT encourages healthy behaviors like regular hygiene, cooking lessons, chores, and sticking to a routine. Feeling small accomplishments is important for proper hormone regulation when recovering.
The burst of joy after cooking a delicious meal or smelling fresh clean sheets in a neatly made bed are important for both during and after treatment.

Expressive Therapy

Many treatment centers over look expressive therapy or fail to utilize its’ fullest potential. Expressive therapy is having the client express their feelings in a constructive method while both inspiring personal reflection and growth through creativity. Some tools of expressive therapy are writing, art, and music.

Through journaling, poetry, or creative writing a client is able to vent, process lessons, and heal. Raw uncomfortable emotions like shame and regret fuel poetry that heals the soul and sparks forgiveness. Music and art can inspire nostalgia or motivate purpose to stay sober. A Better Today focuses on the details or the ‘little things’ that matter when recovering from drug and alcohol abuse.

Family Therapy

Drug and alcohol addictions are considered a family disease at A Better Today. Many clients develop life goals in treatment to mend the family relationships that have been destroyed by substance abuse. Reuniting children with their parents and brothers with their sisters is the pulse of A Better Today’s mission statement and company values.

We provide family therapy sessions to help mend these relationships, build a strong family support system, and help educate family members of all ages about addiction as a disease. Every Saturday ABT provides Family Day Events to address the effects of the disease on a family level. Addiction effects every family member differently. Providing a safe environment to heal and establish healthy boundaries is just another way we set the bar high when it comes to quality treatment.

Individualized treatment plans offer you the most out of our services and after years of polishing our approach we are confident in our superior care and qualified staff. Trust in A Better Today to provide long lasting tools for recovery.
