Residential Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Cold Creek is here to assist you and your loved one.

Evidence Based is Best

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse and Columbia University the most effective drug abuse programs treat addiction using a variety of evidence based therapies and “address the individual’s drug abuse and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems” at the same time and the same setting. Treating mental health and addiction is know as dual diagnosis. Another element of evidence based treatment is accreditation. National accreditation programs like The Joint Commission ensure that programs meet rigorous standards and ensure facilities provide operational systems critical to the safety and quality of care. Non 12-Step inpatient drug rehabilitation programs that provide comprehensive evidence based treatment have the highest success rates compared with other type of drug rehabilitation programs.

Individualized Treatment

Each person and their circumstances are unique; there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating addiction. Cold Creek offers a truly individualized addiction treatment in Utah for each client. The individual treatment plan is developed after clients receive multiple comprehensive assessments that include psychological testing, addiction severity indexing, neuropsychological testing, IQ and reasoning assessments, and a dual-diagnosis assessment. These results determine which therapist and counselor the client will be paired with and direct the scope and duration of treatment.

Limited Enrollment

Individualized treatment is most achievable in smaller facilities that treat 12 clients or less. At Cold Creek, we maintain industry leading staff to clients ratios to ensure plenty of interaction, attention, individual counseling. This way no one gets lost in a crowd. Our clients know there is always someone available to help.

After Inpatient Residential Treatment
Following Inpatient Residential Treatment clients graduate into our Intensive Outpatient Program. This is when clients are most vulnerable to relapse. This is when Cold Creek’s continuity of care treatment model really shines. Clients continue to work with the same therapists and staff who know their back ground and vulnerabilities. We continue to provide familial support, medical support, group support, and help build a strong system of personal support to give clients the power to fully recover.

Assessment and Beginning Treatment
Calling to speak with one of our compassionate intake coordinators is the first step to determining if Inpatient Residential Treatment is appropriate for your unique circumstances. They can guide you through verifying insurance coverage and answer any of your drug and alcohol related questions.

Is Residential Treatment Appropriate for your Situation?
Inpatient residential treatment is appropriate for individuals struggling with addiction who have lost the ability to meet their regular obligations to family, their employer, school or the community. Another indication is if someone has made repeated unsuccessful attempts to get sober or relapsed after completing lower levels of care like Day Treatment or Outpatient Treatment Programs. A person who is unable to stop using without experiencing intense withdrawal symptoms should be evaluated for a medically supervised detox and inpatient treatment.

A common cause of relapse is inadequate treatment. Individuals with co-occurring mental heath and substance abuse disorders must receive treatment in a dual diagnosis facility where addiction and mental health disorders are treated at the same time and in the same setting. Treating one or the other, when both exist is a common cause of relapse. Remember, its not about willpower or self control, addiction is a disease and changing years of addiction requires the right type of treatment for the right amount of time. Relapse is not a sign of personal weakness or failure, rather an indication that more treatment at a higher level of care is necessary.

How Long Does Inpatient Rehab Last?
Inpatient Residential Treatment typically lasts 30 days; however, treatment duration is ultimately based on individual progress and medical necessity. Individuals with a long severe history of addiction, mental health challenges, a history of family instability, legal troubles, and limited employment history or schooling may require more treatment. Treatment duration is determined using evidence based criteria established by  the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and varies according to addiction severity and individual progress during treatment. One of Cold Creek’s greatest strengths is that we keep working with clients long after many facilities give up. We offer a wide range of the most successful therapies and the resources to treat difficult cases.  We successfully treat a lot of clients that were labeled “non-compliant” by other programs.
