also others. Our experienced staff, licensed therapists, psychologists, and
psychiatrists recognize that faith-based treatment, encompassing mind, body
and spirit, provide you and your loved ones with the long-lasting tools and
knowledge to find freedom beyond addiction’s grip.

The Honey Lake Clinic Difference

At the heart of Honey Lake Clinic’s treatment program is the Christ-centered
therapeutic environment, community, curriculum, and structure. While this
highly structured healing community represents a microcosm of the larger
society and family system, it also provides a safe, supportive environment
where you can address the dynamics of your struggles.

A Faith-Informed Treatment Model

While many programs give lip service to spirituality or divine power, at Honey Lake Clinic we help people re-engage their faith and spirituality as an integral part of health and wholeness.

Integrating this spiritual component, using a specifically Christian worldview to better inform the psychological and physiological spheres, our clients are able to explore and engage their faith in discovering renewed purpose, peace, joy, love and fulfillment.

Medical Detox

At Honey Lake Clinic, you’ll have medical and addiction professionals walk this path with you. You will be able to lean on experienced professionals who’ve done this, successfully, many times over. They know what to expect, how to respond, and have the necessary tools to help you at their discretion.

Depending on your addiction, certain medications may be helpful to alleviate withdrawal symptoms, allowing you to focus more clearly on the work at hand—getting sober. If needed, these medications will be prescribed, administered and monitored.

Physical Detox Withdrawal Symptoms

Serious and disabling symptoms of detox should give you pause about trying to go it alone. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe and need to be monitored by professionals. Physical symptoms include:

  • Restlessness and irritability
  • Agitation
  • Blood pressure increases to very high levels
  • Aches and shakes
  • Pulse increase with the stress of the withdrawal
  • The digestive system moves into crisis; diarrhoea is common
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Headaches, dizziness, and confusion
  • Tiredness, temperature changes in the body, hot and cold flashes
  • Shaking and cramping muscles

Psychological Symptoms

There are also serious psychological symptoms to consider, including:

  • Hallucination
  • Intense cravings
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling like your body is coming apart
  • Mood swings from depressed to hopeless to suicidal
  • Paranoia with hallucinations which can escalate into defensive actions

Dual Diagnosis and Mental
Health Services

Dual Diagnosis and Mental Health Services

Many people who struggle with addiction also have a co-occurring mental health condition such as anxiety or depression. In order to provide the right treatment, an accurate dual diagnosis is needed. For patients with a dual diagnosis, the most promising treatment incorporates care for addiction and the co-occurring mental health disorder at the same time.

“The biggest mistake families make when it comes to getting their loved one into residential alcohol or substance rehab is not acting soon enough.”
