Addiction may feel hopeless, but it’s not. We’ve seen countless people walk out our doors ready to embark on a new, fulfilling life in recovery. You can get better too.

The Right Step offers addiction treatment for people struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. Our medical and behavioral experts create a treatment plan unique to your needs. You’ll recover alongside peers sharing similar struggles. We provide a treatment experience that’s engaging and effective.

Addictions We Treat

The Right Step provides recovery programs for all types of substance abuse. Our addiction treatment teams are experts in treating:

  • Alcohol abuse and addiction
  • Heroin addiction
  • Prescription drug abuse
  • Cocaine addiction and abuse of other stimulants
  • Hallucinogen abuse
  • Marijuana addiction

We also treat polysubstance addictive disorders. This means you’re abusing more than one substance at a time.

Treatment Options

The Right Step offers the full continuum of care for alcohol or drug addiction. We meet you where you are on the road to recovery with both inpatient and outpatient programs. We also offer medical detox for those who need it.

Medical Alcohol and Drug Detox

Attempting alcohol or drug detox on your own can be uncomfortable and dangerous. Our medical team makes sure detox is safe and as comfortable as possible. We’ll prescribe medications that ease withdrawal symptoms. Our detox team will monitor your vital signs and closely attend to your needs.

Residential Treatment

The Right Step’s inpatient program gives you time and space to focus on getting better. Days are filled with a range of treatment approaches for drug addiction and alcohol abuse. Through individual and group therapy you’ll delve into issues that contribute to substance abuse. You’ll learn healthy ways to cope, which can help prevent relapsing. You’ll be immersed in recovery and spend your days and nights in a structured environment. Our inpatient rehabs help you build a strong foundation in recovery. Our Dallas residential program includes a chronic relapse track. This program is a good option for people who’ve experienced multiple relapses.

Outpatient Treatment

Our outpatient program can be a step-down option from residential treatment or our partial hospitalization program. The program meets three days a week in the day or evening, for a total of 10 hours a week. Then clients return home or to a sober living home. Many clients attend work and school while participating in outpatient treatment. The Right Step outpatient program can help you transition back into everyday life. It provides structure and support as you navigate triggers in early sobriety.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Our PHP provides more intensive outpatient rehab for clients. You’ll meet at our treatment center five times a week during the day. The Right Step PHP offers many of the same therapies as our inpatient treatment programs. You’ll keep a strong foothold in addiction treatment while adjusting to everyday life in sobriety.

Types of Therapies

The Right Step keeps treatment engaging with both traditional and experiential therapies. Specific types of treatment for drug and alcohol addiction vary by location and individual needs. Some types of therapies you may take part in include:

Individual Therapy

You’ll have regular one-on-one sessions with a therapist. Many people develop a trusting, transformative therapeutic relationship with their counselor. Individual addiction counseling provides a safe space to explore difficulties. Understanding how emotional issues lead to alcohol and drug abuse helps your recovery journey.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is a central part of our addiction treatment program. Many find group therapy to be the most rewarding part of their time at The Right Step. Sharing and hearing from peers with similar struggles helps you feel less alone in your problems. Led by addiction counselors, you’ll explore topics relevant to recovery.

Family Therapy

Addiction affects the entire family. Many clients have strained relationships with loved ones. Family begins healing in their own way through our addiction treatment program. Family therapy helps open the lines of communication. A trained therapist guides you through difficult conversations. Loved ones learn how to support each other better. They also learn to take care of themselves.

Behavioral Therapies

The Right Step’s treatment model includes a number of behavioral therapy approaches. An important part of substance abuse treatment is changing thoughts and behaviors. Some of our behavioral therapies include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) – Learn to recognize destructive thought patterns that lead to destructive behaviors. Change unhelpful thought patterns to healthier ones.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) – Using mindfulness practices and CBT teachings, you’ll notice the power thoughts have over you. Use techniques to better regulate emotions.
  • Motivational interviewing – Gain internal motivation to make positive changes through this strength-based approach.

Fitness and Nutrition

The health of mind and body are linked. Addiction recovery means healing both. The Right Step provides many opportunities for fitness and exercise. Physical activity can soothe anxiety and depression symptoms. It can also help you feel better physically and mentally. We provide well-balanced meals and help you understand the role nutrition plays in addiction recovery.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness activities like meditation can be useful relapse prevention tools. You’ll learn how to stay in the present moment and “get out of your head.” These are important recovery concepts.

Creative Therapies

Music and art activities can help you express yourself in different ways than talk therapy. They can also keep you engaged in a way that helps you take a break from stressors.

Relapse Prevention

The Right Step addiction treatment center prepares you for long-term recovery. From day one you’ll begin building a toolbox of recovery skills for everyday life. You’ll learn how activities like mindfulness and exercise can help when you’re feeling triggered to use substances. You’ll take part in 12-step programs that you can continue after you leave our rehab center. We’ll help you prevent relapsing through aftercare planning. We can connect you with:

  • Individual and family therapists
  • Sober-living residences
  • Psychiatrists
  • Support groups

Our outpatient drug addiction treatment and outpatient alcohol addiction treatment are also helpful relapse prevention options.

What to Expect

The Right Step has helped clients and their families reclaim their lives from addiction since 1990. Our approach is based on 12-step recovery principles and evidence-based addiction treatments. You’ll receive expert care and relapse prevention tools needed for long-term recovery.

At The Right Step, we understand how substance abuse can wreak havoc on parents, siblings, children and friends of the addicted person. Our customized treatment plans consider a variety of factors including:

  • Duration of abuse
  • Type of substance dependence
  • Age
  • Physical and mental health
  • Co-occurring mental illness
  • Past trauma
  • Desire to change and willingness to undergo treatment
  • Adequacy of social support system
  • Personal beliefs and preferences
  • Work and family life
  • Plans for ongoing care

The treatment process often begins with medical detox. Then you’ll move into residential addiction treatment. During inpatient treatment your days are filled with addiction recovery activities. You’ll participate in a blend of individual and group therapy. We’ll also introduce you to lifelong support systems like Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous.

After residential treatment for substance abuse, many clients transition into our outpatient programs. Depending on where you’re at in your recovery journey, you can choose from a five-day program or three-day program. Outpatient treatment gives you regular support from addiction counselors and peers in recovery as you re-enter life sober.

We Accept Insurance

We believe cost shouldn’t be a barrier to effective treatment. The Right Step offers high-quality treatment for addiction at a lower cost than many treatment facilities. We work with a number of health insurance providers. Call us for a free insurance benefits check. We’ll work directly with your insurance provider to determine the specifics of your drug rehab insurance benefits.
