Ascension offers specialized treatment for drug and alcohol addiction for mature adults. Our residential addiction treatment center for has a multidisciplinary team of professionals experienced in helping older mature adults quit abusing drugs to rediscover their purpose in life.
Most treatment services are geared towards younger adults ranging in age from 18-24. However, Ascension is the only treatment program geared specifically for mature adults. These adults face different challenges in comparison to younger adults. They have a wide array of stressors and responsibilities that young adults do not contend with in their lives. These factors often make it difficult for them to have productive and successful treatment when mixed with young adults. Mature adults are motivated and driven in their own way and need to be around people who feel the same. We have created an atmosphere where they can obtain treatment while being able to relate to and seek support from their peers.
Mature adults experience addiction and recovery differently from others, and they have different mental, physical, and spiritual needs than their younger peers. Our multidisciplinary staff has experience working with professional mature adults, helping them to find their way from addiction to serenity.
Mature adult addiction treatment is specialized, and our program is designed to meet their needs. When a person enters residential treatment, we evaluate their health. A medical evaluation will help us learn more about their history, including their drug use and previous treatment. We also assess incoming clients for any co-occurring mental health disorders. Many of our mature clients suffer from depression, anxiety, or trauma (and PTSD). Any co-existing health conditions or mood or behavioral disorders can also be monitored when entering a treatment program.
The issues we work with professional adults are often age-related and sometimes include physical health problems, depression, health and family concerns. We focus the treatment on rediscovering purpose and serenity in life. Our environment is compassionate and meant to take many factors into account, such as age, physical health, mental acuity, and life story.
Because our staff works with mature adults, they’re prepared to work with medication management. Our clients come to us with varied backgrounds and life stories. Some of our clients come to us as the primary caregiver. Others come to us with health and wellness concerns, managing chronic disease. Some of them are coping with grief and loss. They may have financial concerns or worries about retirement. These are all important issues that must be addressed to help our clients have the best chance for long-term serenity.
In our treatment center, no one is alone. In our inclusive, compassionate program, we work to meet each client’s needs at this moment in life, and provide them with the tools to live each moment to the fullest.
One of the strongest things a person who is addicted to a substance can do is ask for help. Getting help for a drug or alcohol problem is the first step to leading a fulfilling life. Addiction is a disease and residential treatment has shown to have some of the best outcomes for mature adults with drug problems.
