Our Stabilization Phase

Where Does Stabilization Fall Within The Recovery Process?

Below is a general depiction of the different Levels Of Care an individual can move throughout their addiction recovery journey. Recovery from drug addiction is a long-term process and frequently involves several benchmarks. At Peaks Recovery, we focus intensely on building the individual’s foundation so that they can successfully transition to a lower level of care.

Our Stabilization Phase Explained In Depth

The 2 Main Stages of Stabilization

There are two key physiological issues that must be addressed within any stabilization period:

1. Withdrawal Stabilization

Alleviating the distress and discomfort caused by withdrawal from intense use of drugs and/ or alcohol can be a painful and/ or potentially life-threatening event. Ensuring the safety and well-being of the individual then becomes the first step in a medically managed and monitored detox setting.

2. Craving Stabilization

Over time using the substance, an individual forms habits, patterns, and triggers prompting these cravings, which are the disruptive physiological brain states that drive addiction. After withdrawal stabilization, individuals are transitioned to our clinical specialist team to begin rebuilding tolerance during moments of discomfort. We then can begin to untie the mental bindings to these cravings to help create better habits.

Why is Stabilization so important to the recovery process?

Withdrawal symptoms and Cravings are two states almost all individuals struggling with addiction experience. Both go hand in hand, and failure to nurture both stages of discomfort distracts the individual from doing the individualized work necessary to maintain a directional approach toward recovery.
