You or someone you know may struggle with substance use disorder (SUD). Research has proven that completing a drug rehabilitation program decreases the risk of relapse, improves the quality of life, and encourages long-term positive changes for individuals with SUD and co-occurring conditions. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), “Most people who get into and remain in treatment stop using drugs, decrease their criminal activity, and improve their occupational, social, and psychological functioning.” You or your loved one can find relief from the pain of substance misuse by participating in a treatment program.

The Health Effects of Drug Misuse
Relief from painful symptoms and assistance in maintaining sobriety are the primary goals for most individuals who attend rehabilitation. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), “Recovery is characterized by continual growth and improvement in one’s health and wellness and managing setbacks.” At The Family Place, we assist clients in accomplishing a healthy transformation by providing the following:
- Group activities and community events
- Educational classes, including co-parenting classes, sex education, and basic life skills
- Peer support
- Medication management, when appropriate
Each service provides an opportunity for growth and relief from the common effects of SUD. Some of the symptoms we can assist you with managing include:
- Extreme mood swings
- Chronic exhaustion
- Depressive episodes
- Increased anxiety and stress responses
- Co-occurring mental health disorders
- Intrusive thoughts

Day-To-Day Life During Drug Rehabilitation
Everyone has their own distinctive response to treatment, which means each client’s recovery can look very different. However, you can successfully achieve and maintain sobriety. If you put in the hard work and actively participate in the treatment process, you will have a better experience and receive significant health benefits.
Regardless of participation level, most people who attend rehabilitation programs notice positive changes in their emotional stability and social interactions. The clinicians at The Family Place emphasize personal connection, encourage individual accountability, and facilitate self-growth with the support of an intimate family-like environment.
We believe that decreasing moments of downtime removes some of the distractions that can interfere with recovery. Day-to-day life during rehabilitation generally involves a full schedule from morning until late afternoon. When you attend one of our programs, your weekly routine will include:
- Daily individual and group therapy
- Daily communal meals
- Daily access to recreational activities that focus on mindfulness, healthy exercise, and meditation
- Daily peer support groups, including 12-Step meetings
- Weekly community events
- Weekly group activities, including excursions
- Family therapy and events involving family participation
We have the resources to accommodate religious, cultural, and personal traditions into your treatment plan. Find out more by visiting our Services page.
The Importance of Community
A sense of community encourages accountability, motivates long-term change, and offers a supportive framework for healthy living. According to Occupational Therapy International, “Evidence suggests that a peer-supported community programme [sic] focused on self-determination can have a significant positive impact on recovery from substance addictions.” Peer support significantly impacts the effectiveness of treatment, especially for individuals who suffer from co-occurring disorders that affect social skills.

Pregnancy and Treatment
Substance misuse before and during pregnancy can lead to serious health side effects for mother and baby. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Opioid use disorder during pregnancy has been linked with serious negative health outcomes for pregnant women and developing babies,” including:
- Preterm birth
- Maternal mortality
- Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS)
Pregnant mothers in crisis have to consider their own health and safety and the well-being of their baby. In most cases, it is safer to use medication-assisted treatment (MAT) until after the baby is born to avoid shocking the system and possibly harming the baby.
We encourage clients to follow the advice of their OB-GYN and offer a variety of MAT options when that is the appropriate treatment. Every case is unique. Our clinical team works with mothers in crisis to determine the safest and most effective form of care to keep them and their baby healthy and safe. Learn more about how we help pregnant mothers in crisis by visiting our Pregnant Program page.
The Importance of Aftercare
You may think it sounds odd, but continuing care is often one of the most critical stages of the recovery process. Completing a rehabilitation program provides a solid foundation for ongoing sobriety. The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health reported that “With comprehensive continuing care, recovery is an achievable outcome: More than 25 million individuals with a previous substance use disorder are estimated to be in remission.” Aftercare services connect clients to organizations, programs, and local resources that ensure continued sobriety.
You can overcome SUD and build a healthier future for yourself and your family using the tools you learn in treatment. At The Family Place, we believe in the power of change and offer a safe and intimate environment where you can learn, grow, and develop healthy social relationships to make the transition to aftercare less stressful.
