Evidence-Based Therapies that Heal the Mind, Body & Spirit
Fostering Recovery with Supportive Addiction Treatment in Milwaukee
At Roots Recovery, we’ve made it our mission to help those suffering from alcohol and drug addiction rebuild their lives and take back control of their futures. Throughout your recovery journey, we provide addiction treatment services designed to help you develop strong support networks, build a toolset of recovery skills, and heal the underlying causes of your addiction so that you can live a sober, healthy life.
Individualized Substance Abuse Counseling
From when you first begin treatment to your last day in rehab, you’ll meet with one of our Milwaukee substance abuse counselors on a regular basis. Your one-on-one counseling sessions are an opportunity to discover, explore, and heal the root causes of your addiction. They’re also a chance to develop healthier coping mechanisms, discuss personal challenges, and reflect on your progress in recovery.
Our experienced clinical team approaches treatment differently with each client, so that everyone who comes through our program has access to substance abuse treatment that they’re comfortable with. At Roots Recovery, we understand that different people experience addiction in different ways — we provide counseling with this in mind.
Group and Family Counseling
While you’re in recovery, we emphasize helping you develop strong support networks — both with peers in addiction rehab and with your loved ones. During group therapy, our clients work with an addiction counselor, as well as their peers, to develop positive thought patterns, learn effective skills for sobriety, discover new perspectives, and form supportive relationships with those in similar situations.
We also offer family counseling with clients and their loved ones. Working with one of our experienced therapists, we discuss how each member of the family has been affected by addiction, and explore what each person needs from the others in order to heal.
At Roots Recovery, we introduce our clients to the 12 Steps and help place them into 12-Step meetings, both with their housemates and with community members. We encourage our clients to actively participate in positive, helpful, and solution-driven 12-Step groups. We also help our clients find sponsors by connecting them with those we’ve worked with in the past who have maintained their recovery. Clients attend meetings an average of 5 days a week, and 12-Step principles are reinforced during Roots Recovery addiction treatment programs.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Due to the destructive nature of drug and alcohol abuse, it’s not uncommon for the disease of addiction to be accompanied by a mental health condition. Commonly referred to as a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, both conditions usually feed into one another and share similar symptoms, making it difficult to diagnose and treat them effectively.
Our experienced addiction clinicians and substance abuse counselors at Roots Recovery are skilled in detecting and constructing treatment plans for co-occurring disorders, such as depression and anxiety accompanied by addiction. We believe that mental health conditions and addiction need to be treated simultaneously for our clients to truly begin to heal and continue onto a life of lasting recovery.
Alcohol & Drug Addiction: More Than A Physical Disease
Whether you’re suffering from drug addiction or alcoholism, any type of long-term substance abuse can take a toll on your body, making you feel drained, weak, and exhausted, but addiction does not only affect your physical well-being, it affects your overall mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, too.
Drug and alcohol addiction can make you feel lonely, broken, and disconnected from the real world around you. It can cloud your judgment, put a heavy strain on your most important relationships, and cause your spirit to lose hope.
At Roots Recovery, we leverage a holistic healing philosophy that focuses on reconnecting your mind with your body while increasing your feeling of emotional wellness and helping you find your spirituality and purpose in life.
Community, Fellowship, and Support
At Roots Recovery, we take great pride in the fellowship, friendships, and support formed between our clients, treatment staff, house managers, and alumni. Addiction can feel isolating, and this is something that each of us at Roots Recovery — from our staff to our clients — can relate to. We bond through our shared experiences and common mission, while holding one another accountable and celebrating each other’s successes as we move forward, together.
