Chemical Dependency Center
Life can be extremely difficult for someone struggling with drug or alcohol addiction — and for their families too. Sometimes the struggle is obvious to outsiders. Other times, it’s not. Often, addiction results in lost jobs, lost relationships and legal trouble.
If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction or substance abuse, the Providence St. Peter Chemical Dependency Center can help. Our experts will diagnose your condition and tailor a treatment program to fit your specific needs. We are committed to helping you overcome your chemical dependency and build a better life.
At Providence St. Peter Chemical Dependency Center, we treat many types of addictive behaviors and chemical dependencies, including:
- Alcohol abuse and addiction
- Drug abuse and addiction
- Gambling addiction
- Smoking addiction
To live a healthy life, people struggling with addictive or compulsive behaviors need professional help. At Providence Chemical Dependency Center, our expert staff will diagnose your condition and recommend a treatment program. We offer a safe, confidential environment for your recovery.
Our treatment programs are based on the nationally recognized American Society of Addiction Medicine guidelines. To overcome drug and alcohol addiction, it’s important to accept the fact that you have a disease. It impacts your health and the people around you. But you aren’t on this journey alone. We offer:
- Confidential pre-admission screening
- Education for family and others who are concerned
- Individual counseling and group therapy
- Introduction to community support programs such as AA and NA
- Medical evaluation
- Nutrition counseling
- Ongoing support
- Spiritual care
Some people need inpatient treatment to fight drug and alcohol dependencies. If this is the case for you, we’ll assess your condition and offer a medically-monitored detoxification program. A detox program helps you manage the withdrawal symptoms you may experience, such as anxiety, irritability, depression, hallucinations, tremors and insomnia.
We’ll provide professional care to address your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs. Our goal is to minimize the length of your inpatient stay and move you into a less intensive treatment setting as soon as you are ready.
For most patients, it’s not easy to stay away from drugs and alcohol. During outpatient treatment, we teach skills you can use to make permanent lifestyle changes and reduce your risk of relapse. We support you with counseling and group therapy. Outpatient programs include:
- Family program
- Individual and family counseling
- Intensive outpatient program
- Monthly monitoring
- Partial hospitalization
- Youth substance abuse education
If you cannot control the impulse to gamble, we can help. Our certified staff will perform a confidential assessment and develop a treatment plan designed just for you. Through individual counseling, we’ll show you techniques to help resist the urge to gamble and to avoid situations that may tempt you. We also offer family counseling to help you cope with the effects of your addiction. Families are welcome to seek counseling even if their loved one has refused treatment.
When you are ready to stop smoking, the Providence Chemical Dependency Center can help. We offer you a variety of stop-smoking techniques:
- Nicotine replacement therapy
- Prescription medications to help limit cravings
- Counseling sessions
- Tobacco cessation classes
Doctors say quitting can lower your blood pressure and heart rate almost immediately. And your risk of a heart attack declines within 24 hours.
