ABOUT US Bella Monte Recovery Center provides comprehensive care in our 12-Step rehab program to address each client’s unique addiction needs related to physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. Our California drug and alcohol rehab team at Bella Monte is comprised of clinicians, case managers, and other addiction professionals. Many of our staff have a firsthand understanding of the life-changing issues and challenges that are commonly faced when beginning a recovery lifestyle. Our staff comprise a tight-knit team that puts our client’s care first, working together to ensure each client is successful in their treatment experience. Sobriety is our goal regardless of how many times our clients have tried to quit in the past. When people think about drug addicts, they often imagine the negative stereotypical image that movies, television, and much of our daily experience has left us with. It is usually not a successful business person, doctor, or lawyer that comes to mind. This causes an issue because many addicts attempt to disassociate themselves from this negative stigma, often denying their problem or coping secretly, which may result in not seeking the treatment they need. The truth is, addicts are found at every age, socioeconomic class, and within every ethnic group and gender. Bella Monte Recovery Center’s treatment program is licensed through the state of California’s Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) as a comprehensive clinical (extended care) residential program designed for men and women recovering from drug or alcohol addiction. Bella Monte Recovery Center is located in Desert Hot Springs, California. Desert Hot Springs’ natural healing, hot and cold mineral water aquifers were first discovered in the Twentieth Century. Each of the rooms at Bella Monte Recovery Center has a spacious tiled bathroom with a jetted Jacuzzi tub that pulls fresh hot mineral water from our private well. With our peaceful surroundings and soothing mineral waters, Bella Monte is the ideal retreat to begin or continue your journey to recovery.

Bella Monte is the ideal rereat to begin a journey to addiction recovery. “

AFTERCARE PROGRAM

In order to help our clients maintain their recovery once they leave the facility, our team begins aftercare planning the moment someone is admitted to our program. The aftercare plan serves as a recovery roadmap for our clients. We want to make sure each client is supported long-term and has an established support network. Our clients discover the power within them and will work hand-in-hand with our treatment team to take an active role in planning their aftercare. We extensively research all of the substance abuse aftercare options to ensure an appropriate match and then schedule appointments with the most respected treatment providers. We work with our clients to help them identify specific people, places, and things that pose a threat to their recovery. Clients are led through a series of exercises designed to help them understand the

relapse process, identify personal relapse triggers, and develop an action plan to avoid relapse. This level of planning and preparation can be the difference between sustained recovery and relapse. To further prepare themselves, clients participate in weekly relapse prevention sessions. During these sessions, they learn strategies to cope with the inevitable struggles that they will experience on their journey through recovery. Throughout the first year, a staff member will maintain contact with each client to ensure they are staying on track with their recovery. It is important for our team to know our clients are supported when they leave. If additional resources are needed at any time, our team of staff members is simply a phone call away. At Bella Monte, we want to ensure that recovery is for life.

Believe you can and you’re halfway there.

Exercise increases levels of endorphin’s in one’s body. As these feelings intensify, users feel less need to use the drugs and alcohol that they used in the past to either create good feelings or dull bad ones. Exercise also boosts the immune system, which makes it easier to manage pain and other chronic conditions. Not only does this reduce the need for illicit substances and prescribed pain medications, it also makes it easier for users to manage or even reverse the eˆects of past abuse. Bella Monte incorporates physical ‰tness into our holistic approach to recovery from addiction because our team understands that recovery from addiction is less eˆective without a focus on the mind, spirit, and body. We help clients meet their goals and experience a greater level of ‰tness and health, all while having fun.

MIND & BODY Our approach to substance abuse treatment addresses the whole client – mind, body, and spirit. Our holistic wellness programs include the following therapies to help our clients achieve balance that facilitates the recovery process. Journaling: e process of journaling focuses on building techniques that encourage insight and self-awareness through written expression. Journaling is for ongoing self-exploration and a‚rmation. Massage: Alternative holistic therapies such as massage allow clients to release stress and relax in a healthy manner. Additional charges may apply. Meditation: Practicing meditation can change how a person relates to the…ow of emotion and thoughts in the mind and helps to create a mindful and focused environment. Sauna: Sauna works on the principle of generating abundant sweat to detoxify the body and relax the mind. Swimming: Swimming oˆers a gentle exercise for our clients that refreshes the mind and relaxes the body. Our swimming pools and spas are ‰lled with natural hot mineral waters originating from the Desert Hot Springs Aquifer. ese healing waters are heated by ancient geothermal forces thousands of feet below the earth’s surface. Naturally heated to temperatures as high as 180 degrees, for centuries, the waters have been believed to hold curative powers. Yoga and Breathing: e holistic focus of yoga encourages the integration of mind, body, and spirit. PHYSICAL FITNESS

e bene‰ts of physical ‰tness have been well established after years of research. People who exercise on a regular basis maintain a healthier weight, have more energy and stamina,

are better protected from chronic health conditions including diabetes and heart disease, and enjoy a greater feeling of happiness and satisfaction. For all of these reasons, when it comes to drug and alcohol rehab, physical ‰tness can play a key role in recovery.

NUTRITION When you eat well, you feel well.e Nutrition Program at Bella Monte Recovery Center was designed by a nutritionist who understands the needs of someone new to sobriety. People in need of treatment tend to have unhealthy eating habits and may be nutritionally deprived.

The goals of this program are to begin living a life of sobriety with support while continuing the therapeutic process with counselors and peers.

Not only will our team of professionals work with our clients to help them develop strong coping and communication skills, but they will also work with client families to ensure they are prepared to support their loved one’s individualized treatment plan as they move forward into sober living and aftercare.

The rising popularity of prescription pain medications has made opioid addiction an alarming epidemic.

Opiate Addiction

B

Examples of opioid drugs include: • Morphine • Codeine • Heroin • Methadone

ella Monte Recovery Center’s opiate treatment program is designed and dedicated to the process of helping individuals overcome their physical and psychological addiction.e Bella Monte Recovery Center’s clinical team is highly trained to deal with the challenges involved with opioid addiction and treatment. A controlled and medically supervised detoxication will be necessary and the intensity of withdrawal will depend on the duration and amount of opioid use. However, detoxication is not a complete solution. Most addicts will eventually resume using opioids unless they receive further help. Opioids enhance the eects of neurotransmitters in the brain called endorphins to suppress pain, reduce anxiety and, at sucient levels, produce euphoria. After any period of continual use, nerve receptors adapt to these drugs, leading to an increased tolerance. As tolerance and dosage increases, the brain ceases to produce its own natural endorphins. At this point, the abrupt absence of opioid drugs will induce withdrawal syndrome as the body tries to compensate. Symptoms include agitation, anxiety, tremors, muscle aches, hot and cold ashes, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Once this dependence has been established, the user is in a seriously high-risk situation. Professional help should be sought immediately.

• Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet, Percodan) • Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab, Lorcet) • Oxymorphone (Opana) • Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) • Fentanyl • Meperdine (Demerol) • Propoxyphene (Darvon, Darvocet) e rising popularity of prescription pain medications has made opioid addiction an alarming epidemic. Although heroin has been the long-time favorite among opiate users due to its high potency, prescription medications like Vicodan, Oxycontin (known to users as “legal heroin”) and the recently developed Opana are equally dangerous. What begins as legitimate pain management can quickly escalate into full-blown opioid addiction. As prescription dosages become insucient, users often utilize alternate methods of consumption including smoking, snorting, or intravenous injection, highly raising the risk of overdose or infectious diseases like Hepatitis C or HIV. Many will turn to illegal methods of obtaining stronger opioids like Oxycontin and Opana and may eventually graduate to more aordable and obtainable street drugs like heroin. e sta at Bella Monte Recovery Center has extensive experience treating men and women suering from opioid addiction. As many addicts tend to conceal, minimize or rationalize their addictions, we work to break down these barriers to recovery with a caring and holistic approach. We understand that addictions of this type involve a multitude of physical, emotional, legal, nancial, and social consequences. We are here to help clients process the devastation associated with their addictions so that healing can occur and lives may be rebuilt. “Bella Monte Recovery Center’s opiate treatment program is designed and dedicated to the process of helping individuals overcome their physical and psychological addiction.”
