Benefits of a Residential Treatment Program
Ardu Recovery Center uses a holistic approach to treating co-existing substance use disorders and mental illness. With our live-in facility, our residents have the opportunity to explore the behaviors that have created and perpetuated the problems in their lives that have resulted from their drug and alcohol use while simultaneously exploring the root cause of their mental illness. This allows them to fully understand why they engage in unhealthy coping mechanisms to help try and unsuccessfully manage the underlying pain that morphed them into an individual that is lost from who they truly are within. We believe that people are not their behaviors and helping them rediscover who they are is our primary mission so that they can live with the happiness they deserve. Ardu Recovery Center believes in the link between mind, body, and spirit, and our primary focus is on helping each individual fully embrace these core principles of life so they can live with purpose and passion once again.

Residential Treatment FAQs
While it is possible to detox at home, the dangers of adverse effects including seizures, nausea and vomiting, sweating, sleeplessness and even psychosis are possible. We recommend seeking treatment at a qualified facility.
Common withdrawal symptoms including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea can lead to severe dehydration that could require emergency services. When detoxing from alcohol, seizures, hallucinations and delirium tremens can quickly turn deadly without appropriate medical attention. Additionally, depression, suicidal thoughts or behavior can occur during the detox phase.
While some substances can be detoxed from without additional medical treatment, alcohol and benzo withdrawal can be life-threatening without the use of medication-assisted treatment. Additionally, the often mild symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea associated with opiate withdrawal can turn to severe dehydration, making medically assisted treatment a safer, more comfortable option.
Detoxing from substances that your body has come to rely on can be emotionally and physically painful. The brain is initially unable to reproduce the endorphins needed to ease that pain as it’s become accustomed to drugs and alcohol artificially providing them. By choosing Ardu Recovery Center’s medical detox program, the unpleasant emotional and physical symptoms can be managed by highly qualified medical personnel, supplemented with medication when appropriate.
Medical detox is appropriate if you experience physical withdrawal symptoms when attempting to stop drugs or alcohol, if drugs or alcohol are affecting your job, relationships or emotional state, or if you’ve been unsuccessful in your prior attempts at detox and recovery.
Medical detox typically takes between 5-7 days but can vary depending on the substance and individual patient’s needs. Ardu Recovery Center takes into account each individual’s personal health history, emotional and physical state as well as time constraints to develop a plan best for the individual.
