The holidays can be stressful for the 23 million Americans who suffer from substance abuse. To help struggling patients and their families, Prominence Treatment Center is offering 10% off drug and alcohol rehab programs. While addiction knows no holiday, Prominence is committed to helping patients live healthier and more meaningful lives.
“This is the first year that Prominence has ever run this promotion,” said the Center’s CEO John Navab. “We know that the holidays can be very tough. Between family, financial strain, and end-of-year stress, substance abuse may feel like an escape. Drugs and alcohol may ‘take the edge off.’ It may feel easier to ‘escape’ than deal with your problems head-on.”
With the chaos of the holidays in full swing, substance abusers may be struggling to find the right time to get help. Rather than waiting until later, now is the right time to make a change.
“There is no better gift that you can give your family,” Navab said. “Get help while you still have a chance at recovery. So many addicts get DUIs, harm themselves, destroy their relationships, and overdose around the holidays. People with a history of depression become more depressed this time of year.”
What patients need most is a healthy and stable environment. Prominence eases the transition to recovery by providing the right atmosphere. Especially over the holidays, comfort and care are what set Prominence apart.
“The staff is supportive and provides tender loving care,” Navab said. “Most programs out there can feel like boot camp, but Prominence takes a different approach. Treatment is not about punishment. Patients who are addicted to drugs and alcohol punish themselves enough. While our program is structured, it is not overly structured.”
Prominence ensures that patients achieve balance in their lives. Even if you start in-patient treatment tomorrow, you’ll stay connected with your family over the holidays. You’ll be able to celebrate the season by keeping in close contact with your loved ones.
“Prominence allows regular cell phone usage so that patients can stay connected to friends and family,” Navab said. “Most rehab centers only allow two 15 minute calls per week.”
Prominence understands that the recovery process is hard work. It takes time, and it’s stressful. For that reason, substance abusers need an environment that truly embraces family values and supports the journey to recovery.
“Recovery takes time,” Navab said. “Be patient with each other. For parents who do not want to enter treatment because they have kids, you are teaching your children young and old the wrong lessons. You can’t take care of your problems by pretending they’re not there. We are never going to feel like going to treatment. We have to work against our feelings and go even if we do not feel like it. Action-oriented steps are what give us motivation. No matter what, do not give up.”
