Non-12-Step Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment Center

Today, more drugs are being prescribed than ever before. And since prescription medications can dramatically alter our brain chemistry, it doesn’t take long to become dependent on them. What’s more complicated, however, is what happens when you try to quit.

In many ways, our society creates the “perfect storm” for mental health crises. So it’s completely understandable that a pill that makes it all go away would sound like a promising solution. This might result in behaviors like:

  • Self-medicating anxiety and depression with benzodiazepines
  • Using prescription stimulants, like Adderall, recreationally
  • Taking prescription opioids to numb uncomfortable emotions

The Sanctuary at Sedona founder Dean Taraborelli discusses in detail the nature of addiction to prescription drugs and The Sanctuary’s approach to the treatment of prescription drug addiction with its integrative holistic addiction recovery program and getting to the root cause.

But regardless of why we start taking them, the problem is that all prescription drugs carry side effects – the worst of which is addiction. Which is why something as seemingly harmless as a routine pain prescription can easily escalate into a habit that you’re no longer in control of.
At The Sanctuary, we understand how frustrating prescription drug recovery can be – especially when you’ve had previous unsuccessful attempts at treatment. That’s why we’ve created a holistic, non-12-Step drug addiction treatment program that takes a more thorough approach to healing, so you can move past your addiction once and for all. We accomplish this by:

  • Uncovering the true source of your addiction
  • Addressing unresolved traumas in your mind, body, soul and spirit
  • Teaching new methods for understanding your behaviors and patterns
  • Guiding you to reconnect with yourself and discover your life’s purpose

Call to Get Started

The Hidden Dangers of Prescription Drugs

Most people who take prescription medications don’t set out to misuse them. But unfortunately, what starts out as the use of medication to solve real problems can quickly spiral out of control. And frankly, it can happen to any of us.

Risky Sources

Anyone with unresolved trauma might start craving the mental, emotional and physical relief prescription medications provide. After their prescriptions run out, many people “doctor shop” or turn to illicit sources to keep getting that relief. This riskier behavior further exposes them to the unknown ingredients and potency of street drugs.

The Real Chemical Imbalance

Additionally, prescription drugs create chemical imbalances in your brain. Though drugs like antidepressants and mood stabilizers are prescribed to “correct” chemical imbalances, there isn’t actually any strong scientific evidence to support this claim. Some prescriptions take up to several years to completely detox from once this dependency is formed.

Break Your Dependency on Prescription Medication

How do you know if you’re addicted to prescription drugs? Ask yourself if you show any of these warning signs:

  • “Doctor shopping,” or seeing several doctors to get multiple prescriptions
  • Taking higher doses than prescribed
  • Lying about which meds you’re taking
  • Mood swings based on the availability of your meds
  • Drug-seeking behaviors like claiming to have lost a prescription or misrepresenting your symptoms in order to get more medication
  • Withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking medication

Humans are comprised of various systems that all work together to function as a whole. At The Sanctuary, we understand that prescription drug addiction affects all of these – and we offer therapeutic approaches to treat each one accordingly. This includes:

Psychiatry

We understand that medication is sometimes necessary, and we’ll work with you to get your prescriptions under control and make sure that what you’re taking serves your best interest. Many of our clients find that with the use of our other holistic therapies, they’re able to reduce the amount of medication they take.

Functional Medicine

Medication review and prescription is overseen by our board-certified psychologist, who is also a Functional Medicine doctor. This means that any medication you take will work in conjunction with other aspects of your treatment to bring your body, mind, soul and spirit back into balance.

Nutrition

Using our knowledge of the gut-brain connection, we offer an intensive nutrition program to help repair your brain. This includes detailed meal planning, local sourcing of organic ingredients and a supplement protocol to help you grow healthy neural pathways.

What is Non-12-Step Rehabilitation?

Our non-12-Step program to treat prescription drug addiction is all about accessing deeper levels of healing so you can truly overcome addiction. We achieve this by:

  • Using the sciences of epigenetics (how behaviors and environment affect our genes) and neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to create new neural connections) to drive positive changes
  • Getting to the source of your behaviors, rather than just treating your symptoms
  • Teaching you the science behind our program, so you can make your own connections about how it works
  • Guiding you to become the master, rather than the victim, of your body and mind

How Does Non-12-Step Rehab Compare to AA?

At the core of 12-Step programs is fear – fear of failing, of relapsing and of never conquering your addiction. The problem with this is that fear automatically constricts your self-growth.

Those who attend AA and 12-Step rehab programs hear how fundamentally flawed they are, over and over again. When these programs don’t work, they believe it’s their fault. And there’s nothing more frustrating than trying your hardest to get better and still feeling like you’re failing.

At The Sanctuary, we ask you to challenge your limiting beliefs, which opens your life to new possibilities.

As one of our alums shared, “The Sanctuary’s integrated model is exactly what I needed, from the therapy, energy work, body work, Heart Math, yoga and meditation, to the sense of community and belonging that helped provide the healing.”

Choosing the Right Non-12-Step Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment Center

The majority of rehabs in the US operate on an old clinical model that only treats the symptoms of an illness or addiction. At this type of rehab you might be able to find “add-on” classes of mindfulness, yoga, etc.

At The Sanctuary, the word “holistic” means we treat the whole person. All of the therapies we offer, whether conventional or alternative, are integral parts of your treatment. We work closely with you to create a treatment plan that fits all of your needs. 

The most important aspect of our treatment model, though, is that it’s integrated. All of the therapies you receive are intentionally designed to work as a whole, to serve your individual needs. Your treatment plan is customized on an ongoing basis to help you achieve the best results: whole-system healing.

Full, Sustainable Recovery From Prescription Drug Abuse

At The Sanctuary, “individualized treatment” is more than just a catch phrase – it’s a level of service we take very seriously.

We host a maximum of 12 people at any given time. Our staff consists of 30 therapists, including eight who live on campus, which means you get significantly more one-on-one time. We offer far more clinical robustness than you’d typically experience at rehab. This includes:

  • Two individual therapy sessions per day
  • Group work
  • A wide range of nature-based activities
  • Movement therapy and bodywork

Your treatment plan evolves with you from day to day. Your treatment team meets daily to discuss your progress. And every night, your schedule is managed according to what happened that particular day and how you’re progressing through treatment. You’ll receive a personalized daily schedule each morning.

Integrated Holistic Treatment

Our treatment program is also fully integrated. This means the treatments we offer are designed to fit together in a specific way. In addition to psychiatry and talk therapy, you’ll have access to powerful holistic therapies like:

  • Breathwork
  • Body work
  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Energy medicine
  • Energy psychology
  • Nutrition and supplement programs

Aftercare at The Sanctuary

Our 90-day treatment program includes 30 days of inpatient treatment, followed by 60 days of intensive aftercare.

When you leave The Sanctuary, you’ll continue working with the same therapists you saw when you were here. For at least two months after your inpatient treatment, they’ll monitor you and coach you during your transition at home. 

Once you return home, you’ll experience the triggers that caused you to use before treatment. That’s why it’s so important to have a support system in place, to help you successfully implement what you learned at The Sanctuary in your everyday life.

We also use a biotechnology device called the Ora Ring as an important part of your aftercare. This device measures your autonomic nervous system to let you know how you’re doing based on physical cues before you mentally register a warning sign.

You’ll learn how to use your Ora Ring data to catch problems as they come up, rather than waiting until they become unmanageable. Recognizing these patterns helps you predict and prevent relapse.

We’ll check in with you regularly to find out what’s going on in your life that’s causing your physical symptoms. And we’ll work with you to resolve those issues. You’ll be empowered to take control of any situation, so you can more easily get back on track.

The community you connect with during inpatient stays doesn’t disappear when you leave. You’ll have access to regular alumni calls every week, and you’ll always stay a part of the Sanctuary family.
