Our geriatric substance abuse treatment is highly structured and grounded in the 12-Step philosophy for treating addiction.

This team includes the following highly trained staff members:

Evidence-Based Therapeutic Practices

Additionally, our geriatric substance abuse treatment is geared towards meeting your or your loved one’s mental, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. To accomplish this goal, our senior adult rehab services include several effective interventions, including:

Medically monitored detox services

To jumpstart the recovery process, you or your loved one may begin your treatment within our medically monitored geriatric detox program. Detox clears substances of abuse from the body, and allows you or your loved to enjoy better health. This form of care also treats withdrawal symptoms and alleviates drug and/or alcohol cravings.

Medication management services

If medication is needed to manage the symptoms of a mental illness, you or your loved one can meet with one of our seasoned psychiatrists to receive the required medication. Our psychiatrists can monitor the effectiveness of any prescribed medication, and they can also change your or your loved one’s regimen if it will help with the healing process.

Family therapy sessions and education opportunities

To assist family members in healing as a whole unit and to help them understand addiction, our geriatric substance abuse treatment program includes family therapy sessions and education opportunities. By partaking in these services, your family can learn about addiction and the best ways to support your or your loved one during recovery.

Group therapy

So that you or your loved one can receive ample support, we include group therapy in our geriatric rehab services. These sessions allow you or your loved one to share your experiences and learn from the experiences of others who are also recovering from an addiction.

Individual therapy

We provide individual therapy sessions so that you or your loved one can meet with a member of our staff to share your feelings and emotions in a private setting. We believe that much can be gained when you can process your experiences and get feedback from a trained professional.

Nutritional care and recreation

Our geriatric substance abuse treatment also offers nutritional care and recreation activities so that our senior adult patients can heal their bodies while working on their recovery. We provide these services so that you or your loved one can enjoy a well-rounded treatment experience.

Seven Hills Behavioral Health Hospital near Las Vegas, Nevada wants nothing more than for you or a senior adult in your life to become sober and healthy.
