Addiction is a complex disease. Every man entering The Last Resort Recovery center is coming in with a unique set of experiences, issues, and views. The therapeutic intervention that helps one man to break free and thrive could be counterproductive to another. At The Last Resort we understand this. That’s why we create an individualized treatment plan to meet the specific needs of each man in treatment.
Upon admission to The Last Resort, all men spend the first part of their treatment in our detox program This is a setting on campus that allows for closer medical supervision and monitoring of detox symptoms. Clients receive both clinical and 12 step programming, but also eat meals and spend recreation periods with men who have been at TLR for longer periods. New clients spend about 5-7 days in our medical detox program depending on the severity of their detox symptoms. During this time, he will gradually transition into regular programming with the rest of the community.
Why Detox First?
The purpose of this transitory period is to give men the space they need to adapt to the treatment environment and stabilize physically prior to fully engaging the responsibilities and expectations of the recovery community. At TLR, we believe that the body needs to begin its process of healing before any real spiritual and recovery work can take place. Since community remains an equally essential component of our treatment philosophy, this time is also an opportunity for our newer members to meet men who have been in the program longer and who become valuable mentors and sources of support.
