|Villa Paz Clinic strives to provide excellent treatment services to the entire family system impacted by alcoholism and other drug addiction and gambling issues.
Villa Paz offers a wide variety of help for those seeking an alcohol treatment program and/or drug treatment program.
Each patient is assigned a treatment team consisting of a physician, nurse, psychologist, primary counselor, case manager, family counselor, dietician, fitness trainer. This team is responsible for working with each patient to establish an individualized plan of care and recommendations for discharge.
Many staff members have personal experience with drug and/or alcohol addiction, and are active in their own recovery. They, more than anyone, know what our clients are going through and are in a position to offer the proper guidance, treatment and support. Every single member of our rehab centers’ clinical team is committed to providing the highest quality care available.
Our intensive treatment model is based on a interdisciplinary team approach and utilizes many principles espoused by the philosophies of the self-help fellowships of both Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous
Fully integrated rehabilitation and wellness care in a beautiful, safe environment, our mission is to provide a gateway to sobriety for you or a loved one and to aid in the achievement of lifetime dreams.
It’s a mission we do not take lightly. We provide world-class, affordable, integrated care. One of the keys to our success has been our size. We limit the number of residential treatment clients at our facilities in order to give each person the personal care and attention they need to succeed. Most rehabilitation and wellness centers in far-away places seem inaccessible, full of people or unknowable or merely a web presence. That is simply not good enough for those who need and deserve special care and attention.
In time, addicts will seek help when the pain of feeding their addiction is perceived to be greater than the pain of giving up. Tackling the issues associated with ‘starting again’ such as paying off dealers, covering the cost of general living and prescribing alternative drugs can have a detrimental effect if the addict chooses to act alone without guidance or structure. Under the supervision of professional and personal helpers, the Villa Paz program is therefore designed in such a way that in the beginning, the addict is actually required to face the consequences of their behavior in an uncompromising examination of how drug addiction ruins lives. Wherever it is deemed appropriate, a course of detoxification is recommended for recreational drug addicts. In actual fact, detoxification is the most simple and straightforward aspect of the treatment; it is the learning process associated with staying off drugs which proves to be the most traumatic episode.
Patients on heroin are detoxified on a reducing basis over their recommended treatment duration. Patients on cocaine or crack, tranquillizers, sleeping tablets and anti-depressants have to be detoxified more slowly over a longer period. Patients on amphetamines (speed), LSD (acid), Ecstasy and cannabis require no detoxification, although mild sedation at night might be helpful for the first two or three nights.
