Addictive Disorders and Treatment Services 

When you’re suffering from an addictive disorder, it can be difficult to recognize that recovery is possible – especially if you’ve already tried to get sober on your own. At Alvarado Parkway Institute, we treat both the physical dependence on alcohol or drugs as well as the more complex emotional and behavioral issues that fuel the cycle of addiction. Following an initial assessment, our medical staff will determine the appropriate level of care depending on the severity of symptoms.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

At Alvarado Parkway Institute, we offer a customizable inpatient treatment program to adults struggling with severe symptoms of addictive disorders. With around-the-clock monitoring by our nursing staff, inpatient treatment is our most intensive level of care. This highly structured setting is designed to allow patients with addictive disorders to focus on their recovery in a safe, controlled environment. Patients may receive any combination of the following services to help them achieve sobriety and avoid re-hospitalization:

  • Safe detoxification
  • Relapse prevention strategies
  • Patient education
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Individual, group, and family therapy
  • Trigger identification and coping strategies
  • Relaxation training
  • Aftercare planning

We employ hospital-approved medication protocols to ensure safe detoxification, and our staff takes careful measures to make the process as comfortable as possible.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment

The goal of our outpatient programs is to help patients who experience less severe symptoms of chemical dependency break the destructive cycle of addiction in a more flexible setting. While our main focus is on addiction, we work with patients to identify co-occurring issues that may interfere with or complicate the recovery process. 

At Alvarado Parkway Institute, we offer a variety of outpatient services, including partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and evening chemical dependency programs. In outpatient care, we help patients develop adaptive coping skills to help them achieve a balanced life and take personal responsibility for making healthy choices. In particular, we utilize the following strategies in outpatient care:

  • Managing the symptoms of withdrawal
  • Trigger identification and avoidance
  • Building healthy relationships
  • Individual, group, and family therapy
  • Practicing effective communication
  • Stress management techniques
  • Relapse prevention
  • Re-entry planning
