Drug rehab is not a vacation, however it is an outlet to get away from your current problems and way of life. At Sunshine Behavioral Health we believe in offering all styles of addiction treatment to better serve our patients.
We understand that no two people’s addiction stories are alike, so why should we expect their treatment plans to be? In order to do this effectively we strive to make sure our centers our staffed with experts in any form of addiction treatment.
From our holistic therapists, to our spiritual counselors, we strive to find dedicated employees in all facets of substance abuse treatment. For those who have never been to rehab, you may not understand the differences in treatment, we are here to help you make sense of it all. In order to have a long lasting recovery it is best to be informed on all of your options and make your choice from there. For more information on our treatment programs you can call us any time of the day.
In order to select the best treatment program for you or your loved one you must know what truly interests you or the person you are here for. Some people respond to different treatment methods in different ways. For example, someone who has a strong belief in religion may find our faith-based program to be something that resonates with them. In that same vein, someone who is not religious may not find the Christian addiction treatment program to be of any use, or even the 12 step method. The 12 steps are not rooted in religion, however there are many mentions of a Higher Power in the 12 steps. Another example of a particular treatment is our dual diagnosis program which focuses on both mental health and addiction. A person with anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, or PTSD along with substance abuse may find this program to be extremely helpful. The treatment that you prefer can be found all in one spot here at Sunshine Behavioral Health.
Our most popular approach to addiction treatment is our holistic drug rehab program. Our holistic program introduces therapies that patients can take with them after treatment to produce a lifetime of health and recovery. Many holistic therapists that we have working at our centers come to visit patients multiple times a week to teach them the benefits of holistic therapy.
Some of these include :
- Deep Breathing Exercises
- Art and Music Therapy
- Physical Education
- Nutritional Education
The 12 steps have been around since the early 1900s and were originally designed to help alcoholics stay sober. Over time the program has caught on and has been adapted by other organizations like Narcotics Anonymous. The principles are the same. Work the steps to better your life and make up for your past mistakes. By participating in the steps and attending 12 step support group meetings your desire to use drugs or alcohol will go away. Our 12 step program introduces people to the program and the steps and helps them become familiar with 12 step support groups. The 12 steps are not for everybody, which is why we offer more than just this treatment style.
Below are the 12 steps as from AA.org:
- We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
- Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
- Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
- Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
- Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
- Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
- Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
- Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
- Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
- Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
- Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
- Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
SMART Recovery stands for Self Management and Recovery Training. The idea came to form as many people wanted a structured approach to treatment but did not want the 12 steps in their recovery. Our SMART Recovery Program is offered as a way to introduce our patients to the program and to show them the power of self empowerment.
SMART Recovery uses a 4 point approach which are as follows:
- Building and Maintaining Motivation (to stay sober)
- Coping with Urges
- Managing Thoughts Feelings and Behaviors
- Living a Balanced Life.
The goal of SMART Recovery is to use logic and reasoning and put the person in charge of their recovery. You do not have to live a life or relapse and you do not have to work the steps or look up to a Higher Power to help you. In SMART Recovery, you are empowered and held accountable for your actions. SMART Recovery also offers support group meetings for patients to attend after leaving treatment and being introduced to the program.
For those who are struggling with a mental illness and a substance abuse problem, dual diagnosis treatment is the best option. This form of treatment helps the patient make sense of both the addiction and their mental health problem. Often times people do not see how the two work hand-in-hand. For example, someone who has anxiety could start off taking a medication like Xanax and wind up addicted to the drugs powerful effects. In other cases, someone who struggles with depression could drink alcohol to get rid of the symptoms of depression, but they are making the depression worse. When you enroll in a dual diagnosis treatment program you will be assessed by certified psychologists and be able to meet with licensed therapists to begin working on both issues. Dual diagnosis treatment centers also work to find the proper resources for their patient’s upon leaving the facility, as a form of aftercare.
Common mental health disorders treated in our dual diagnosis program are:
- Bi-Polar Disorder
Many turn to their faith during difficult times. Going to drug rehab is definitely a difficult time in someone’s life, so the need for faith is important to many. Studies have shown that religion during recovery and addiction treatment can be very helpful. When you enroll in a faith-based program our spiritual counselors will be available to you. We will help you make sense of your addiction and the feelings you have. Our faith-based program relies on religious teachings and studies to help patients make sense of their feelings, thoughts and behaviors. We rely on spiritual counselors with addiction counseling experience to help combine addiction education with prayer. Learn how to make up for your addiction and stay sober while relying on the support of your God. Our faith-based program members can even worship while in treatment.
Treatment styles are just the theme of your program that you will be entered in. The best addiction treatment centers use these styles in conjunction with standard addiction education and cognitive behavioral therapy. We have a team of therapists and addiction counselors who will work on deep seeded issues with our patients to get to the root causes of their addictions. For many, the ideas of how addiction works and why they want drugs make no sense, until after rehab. When you go to rehab you will have a better understanding of what was leading you to use drugs.

If you have insurance coverage, you will need to check for the exact coverage you have. For example, you may be covered for a portion of the costs, or for a certain length of stay. You can do that by contacting your insurance company directly or by allowing us to do that for you. Information from your insurance company will clarify what they will pay and under what conditions. This does not mean that you can choose any program and expect your insurance to pay however. The next step is to find a program that accepts your insurance policy.
