St. Charles Hospital's Chemical Dependency Rehabilitation program (for adults age 18 and over) is voluntary and based on the philosophy that recovery begins with the desire to change. The 40-bed inpatient unit offers a program designed to promote recovery for the chemically dependent patient. We believe that individuals who want to change can achieve success with the proper recovery program. Our experts are highly skilled in all aspects of recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol and provide patients with the tools they need to stay substance-free, develop a new self-image, cope with life's difficulties and make positive and lasting change in their lives.
The ultimate goal of treatment is to minimize the possibility of relapse and maximize each patient's ability to live without the use of addicting drugs or alcohol.
Our program utilizes various approaches to achieve recovery goals including cognitive restructuring, relapse prevention training, effect regulation, wellness concepts and 12-step principles. Depending on the individual treatment plans include issues such as biomedical conditions, emotional and behavioral health syndromes, co-existing psychiatric disorders, and family, work and community concerns.
