Addictions We Treat

Addiction treatment is not one-size-fits-all, and your treatment plan should not be either. That’s why it’s so important that your residential treatment center has experience and expertise in a range of addictions, as well as a focus on individualized care. That’s exactly what you’ll find at The Estate, one of the few stand-alone addiction treatment centers in the country.

Drug Addiction Treatment

Drug addiction is a sad reality for many families. In 2017, an estimated 30.5 million Americans aged 12 and older were current illicit drug users, meaning they had used in the past month, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. If your family is one of those affected, consider taking a different path. We offer a nature-based approach to drug addiction treatment that creates a unique and powerful experience to guide your loved one through recovery.

Who is most at risk?

Not everyone who uses drugs becomes addicted, but the risk factors include:

• Family history of problems with alcohol or drugs
• Early drug use
• Mental health disorders
• Lack of support network

The Estate Approach

As one of the only privately owned, stand-alone drug rehab centers in MS, the Estate treats a wide range of addictions with a unique, effective Dual Diagnosis approach. Designed to address the core of each client’s experience with substance abuse, our program helps those who are ready to help themselves and break the deadly cycle of addiction. Our nature-based, holistic programming–combined with our clinical and therapeutic expertise – allows us to help addicts become advocates for long-term recovery.

Drug Addiction Treatment at the Estate

At The Estate at River Bend, we focus on a nature-based experiential recovery approach. Our private residential treatment center is surrounded by a secluded 108-acre forest, which serves as an integral part of the healing process. Our research-based therapeutic interventions incorporate treatment modalities including ropes courses, challenge activities, and other hands-on experiences in both one-on-one and group sessions.

Here you’ll learn important recovery lessons about trust, communication, perseverance, team-building and other tools for overcoming obstacles to sobriety. We also offer traditional drug addiction treatment including CBT, DBT and EDMR with care that’s individualized to your loved one’s specific needs.

Defining Drug Addiction
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) characterizes drug addiction as compulsive drug seeking and continued use despite harmful consequences. Both a brain disorder and a mental illness, drug addiction is caused by repeated misuse of a substance or substances and is the most severe form of substance use disorders.

Drug addiction can affect anyone at any age. It doesn’t happen because of a lack of principles or willpower; drugs change the brain in a way that makes quitting extremely difficult on your own once addicted.

What’s more, ‘illicit drug use’ doesn’t just include cocaine, heroin or methamphetamines. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health has found the most common type of illicit drug use is actually marijuana, followed by the misuse of prescription pain relievers.

Signs of Drug Addiction
• Problems at school or work — Frequent absences, sudden disinterest or poor performance.
• Health issues — Low energy, lack of motivation, weight loss or gain, frequent red eyes.
• Neglected appearance — Lack of interest in grooming and/or clothing.
• Behavior changes – Irrational behavior or mood swings, being secretive, increased conflicts with family and friends or sudden isolation.
• Money issues – Sudden requests for money without explanation or stealing money or other items.
