Abaterno Consultants is a drug addiction treatment program based in San Jose, California. This company was founded by Dr. Arthur A. Abaterno in the early fifties and has specialized in finding a way to help addicts overcome substance abuse problems. Abaterno Consultants believes that a cure for alcoholism and drug addiction is only possible when a patient reaches his or her psychological potential. In order to reach that psychological potential, addicts need professional assistance. The first step in recovery is drug counseling at Abaterno Consultants.
During the treatment program, which usually lasts four weeks, Abaterno Consultants will evaluate your personal situation to determine if you are a suitable candidate for drug rehabilitation. Based on your evaluation, you will be given a treatment program. The drug rehab program at Abaterno Consultants is broken up into several phases. The first stage consists of education, motivation, and support; the second stage is about coping with withdrawal symptoms and controlling cravings; the third stage focuses on keeping your mind and body focused on alcohol or its effect on you; the fourth stage helps you deal with relapse. After the initial phases, you will be given continuing guidance and assistance to keep you off alcohol or drugs.
Abaterno Consultants provides treatment centers in California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin. Treatment centers may vary in style and size but all feature the Abaterno philosophy and focus on professional, productive, non-invasive care for patients struggling with substance abuse issues. As there are many different types of addiction and dependency, treatment centers vary also, and may be called alcohol rehab centers, drug rehab centers, alcohol treatment centers or residential treatment centers. With their holistic approach to treatment, they can help patients recover from alcoholism or drug addiction, without subjecting the patient to drugs or alcohol in any way.
