Members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBTQ+) community often face insurmountable stigma simply for existing in the world. Unfortunately, stigma can sometimes come from family members and friends. Westwind strives to be a good ally by working hard to help family members better understand sexual orientation, gender identity, and what these concepts mean for close relationships. Clients from the LBGTQ+ community often struggle with co-occurring disorders like anxiety, depression, and substance use disorders. Our goal is to always provide a safe, culturally sensitive program environment free of heterosexist stigmas and judgmental attitudes. Treatment paths are LGBTQ+-issue sensitive and structured for long-term empowerment.
Westwind Recovery’s Night Track program offers flexible options for clients who have work or family obligations during the day. We understand how important it is to maintain a sense of normalcy, to maintain a steady work schedule, or even to continue school while you heal and recover. This intensive-but-accessible program helps clients meet their daytime needs while preserving access to intensive outpatient support. Clients will focus on overall wellness, making healthy lifestyle choices, and methods for controlling stress levels while cultivating a healthy support network. The number one goal is always to help the client live a happier, more sober life.
Graduating from a treatment program can feel daunting, especially during early recovery. But moving on from residential or outpatient treatment at Westwind Recovery doesn’t mean you’re alone; all clients graduating from our program are encouraged to stay connected through our alumni program. Alumni program options include opportunities for fun, sober living activities, support follow-ups, employment support, legal assistance, and even financial management assistance. Clients are encouraged to develop long-lasting friendships and supportive relationships with each other, helping others heal as they also heal and ensure sobriety long-term themselves. It takes time to reach rock bottom; Westwind Recovery is dedicated to your success, no matter how long it takes.
Co-occurring mental health disorders are extremely common in people who abuse substances or struggle with addiction. People turn to drugs or alcohol as a form of self-medication when they lack the skills to cope with under-treated or untreated mental health disorders. The addictive substance alleviates the symptoms, but only while intoxication is present. As the user “comes down,” symptoms re-intensify, driving them to use again and creating incredibly harmful dependencies that exacerbate the condition. This is why treatment plans must address both the addiction and any mental health disorders at the same time. Clients at Westwind Recovery are treated with respect, dignity, and an understanding that their addiction and mental health story is unique.
Withdrawing from addictive substances is never easy; sometimes, it can be downright dangerous or physically and emotionally excruciating. Without medications, withdrawal from drugs like heroin, prescription painkillers, benzodiazepines can lead to intense anxiety, depression, body aches, chills, seizures, or even death. Carefully-monitored medication-based therapies can help to ease this process, reducing withdrawal symptoms and preventing the risk for a client to drop out of treatment before achieving sobriety. At Westwind Recovery we know that sometimes, the most important goal is to keep clients in treatment; the earlier they leave, the more likely they are to relapse and experience fatal overdoses. Medication plays an important role in long-term sobriety for many clients, especially as an adjunct to other non-medication-based services.
Some substance abuse disorders begin as a result of very real, intense, and improperly managed chronic pain. These cases can be incredibly complex and must be handled very carefully to prevent further trauma and suffering. When pain clients come to us after finding themselves addicted, we start with holistic investigations to identify the source of the problem. After helping our clients detox, we work to create a plan that combines physical therapy techniques, talk therapy, and holistic modalities to prevent, minimize, and otherwise control a person’s pain levels with as little medication as is possible. Therapists empower clients to change how they think about pain and resolving it, placing emphasis on whole-body wellness. Some clients go on to require little to no medication, while others are better able to find alternatives and reduce dosages drastically over time.
