Everyone experiences times in their life when they struggle. Let’s face it; life can be difficult, and people find their own ways to cope. Some use exercise to alleviate stress while others turn to drugs and alcohol as an escape – a way to block out emotions that are overwhelming. If you fall into this category, you’ve got lots of company.
The Famous Suffer Too
Abuse and dependency are not restricted to the average person, but also the celebrity circuit, from singers and musicians to actors, writers, models, athletes and more. Needless to say, you are not alone by any means. Here are some well-known faces of Hollywood who have participated in a rehab program for drugs, alcohol, etc.:
- Demi Moore
- Demi Lovato
- Winona Ryder
- Drew Barrymore
- Kate Moss
- Charlie Sheen
- Mel Gibson
This is just a small sampling of celebrities who have seen the inside of a rehab facility, and while there are many more, there are also scores of celebrities who have yet to seek help. As you can imagine, the pressures of being a celebrity in the public eye can drive many to turn to drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism to make life feel more manageable.
If you are battling an addiction and reside in or are willing to travel to scenic New Mexico, Vista Taos Renewal Center is here to help. We have served the community and patients from across the nation since 1994. Vista Taos helps address issues including:
- Drug addiction
- Alcohol addiction
- Pharmaceutical drug addiction
While many obtain drugs legally from doctors, others have been turning to the black market to stock up. If this sounds like you, we’re glad you made it over to our blog and would like to support and provide treatment to you in a soothing and comfortable environment as you learn to make healthier decisions.
Vista Taos is located in beautiful Taos, New Mexico, with gorgeous panoramic views of the southern tip of the Rocky Mountains. Our facility is minutes from Taos Mountain, historic Taos Pueblo and the deserts that inspired Georgia O’Keefe’s artistic pieces.
Length of Stay
The minimum length of stay is 30 days. Why? In order to give you a stronger foundation that cannot be fully built overnight. In fact, research shows that addiction recovery outcomes are even more successful if the patient has a total treatment stay of 90-120 days. The consistent support that comes with treatment leads to a more long-lasting change that patients can learn to apply throughout their lives. So for those who are able to attend Extended Care following their Primary Treatment, their chances of success are greater.
Family & Friends
Treatment centers aren’t only for the participants. Our center is also a great source of information for loved ones, and we even provide suggestions on how to organize an intervention or provide referrals to professional interventionists. A call to Vista Taos will be the first step. Contact us at 1-877-772-2616 and we’ll be glad to help out in any way we can.
Additions to Traditional Treatment
Vista Taos is not only dedicated to providing traditional therapeutic methods like group therapy. In addition, our schedule will allow for equine therapy, yoga, massage therapy, meditation and acupuncture to create awareness of the body and mind. All are led by skilled professionals in their particular specialty area.
As you can see, while treatment can be stressful, all of the activities above are intended to comfort, relax and recharge patients as they strive for recovery.
Let us help you as you as you walk toward recovery. We look forward to the opportunity to guide you along your way.
