Our 10-day addiction treatment for drug and alcohol rehabilitation consists of aversion therapy (a form of counter conditioning), sedation therapy, individual counseling and group/educational lectures. The program also includes studying the philosophy of The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, written by Don Miguel Ruiz. Many patients come to Schick Shadel Hospital for alcohol treatment or for help with other drug addictions. The 10-day aversion therapy program effectively removes the craving that underlies addictive behavior.
The counseling professionals at Schick Shadel Hospital work with patients on a variety of issues aside from substance abuse and addiction disorders. Many suffer from anxiety, depression, childhood abuse, domestic violence and PTSD. Our job is to coordinate care with medical staff to help stabilize the patient’s mental health symptoms until they are able to receive appropriate addiction treatment during or after the 10-day treatment program.
