Getting Help for Substance Abuse
ARCHway understands because we have been there too.
Are you or a loved one struggling with an addictive disorder? Do you feel lost and alone when searching for treatment and other recovery resources? Have you lost hope in the possibility of recovery?
ARCHway understands because we’ve been there too. Almost all of those working in and around ARCHway have been directly affected by a substance use disorder either personally or through watching a loved one struggle with these disorders. We know the struggles you are facing, and we want to provide the strength and hope that recovery is possible.
If you have not reached out to one of ARCHway’s Advocates for HOPE, please reach out today. An advocate will contact you as soon as possible.
Look for a treatment provider who is Person-Centered
At ARCHway, we believe in a Person-Centered approach to treatment. What does this mean? Each person is different, and each person needs different resources in order to get well. There are multiple pathways to recovery, and there are numerous resources out there. We strive to educate you on the ones available to you and your loved one.
Because we believe in a Person-Centered approach to treatment, the first few questions you could ask when looking for the right treatment program for you or your loved one are:
- How are you going to help my loved one?
- How are you going to meet the individual needs of my loved one?
- What will be expected of my loved one?
- What should my role be in the process?
After each question, listen to determine if this is the right place. If it is not–interview another. This will mean that even before beginning the process, you must have a list of potential providers in case you eliminate places because of the gut feeling you get in the assessment of that treatment provider.

To our friends seeking recovery:
Listen and take suggestions. Recovery is not easy. It takes work — sometimes scary and always hard work. Others have done it, and there are many in your corner including ARCHway who want to help you and see you do well. Recovery is not easy, but it is worth it, and you are worth it.

To our fellow caregivers:
You can’t force your loved one to get better, but you can offer resources and opportunities for them to get better when they are ready to work on their recovery. Don’t give up on your loved one. Arm yourself with options for treatment, because the window to get your loved one into a place is small. When your loved one comes to you, you’ll want to act. Once they are admitted to the treatment provider, it is the treatment team’s job to help them see and feel they need to be there. Advocate for your loved one.
