At Bel Aire Recovery Center, recovery begins with eliminating any drugs or alcohol from the body through the process of detoxification.
Our Board-Certified physician and around-the-clock medical staff use a combination of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) along with holistic treatments, such as counseling and behavioral therapy, to reduce the cravings of drug addiction with minimal discomfort.
“Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.” – Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
During that exam, our medical staff will take the time to understand your complete health history with a focus on recent use of drugs and alcohol. We will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan to begin the withdrawal and detox process.
While not all clients will need detox services, it is important that people with a substance use history clear their bodies of drugs or alcohol. In some cases, physical and emotional symptoms may occur, including nausea, anxiety, increased irritability, tremors and insomnia. Our medical and counseling staff work closely with you to reduce these effects, and provide care in a supportive and compassionate manner.
The residential program at Bel Aire Recovery Center provides a safe, structured environment for men and women struggling with substance use disorders to begin their journey of transformation.
Bel Aire Recovery Center understands that no two people have an identical experience with addiction, so we don’t expect everyone to enter into recovery the same way. We take the time to develop a personalized treatment approach that considers your physical, emotional, psychological, social, and family needs.
Residential treatment at BARC includes structured activities and electives throughout the day, evening, and weekend. We know that the first few days of treatment may be filled with doubts, fears, and the physical symptoms of cravings. This is why we provide support staff 24 hours a day to be with you when these feelings emerge during the off-therapy and night time hours.
The experienced staff at our center in Kansas knows that drug addiction has both physiological and psychological causes and symptoms. Using one-on-one therapy, group counseling, and holistic means, we address these causes and teach our clients how to recognize and handle relapse triggers.
A few of the long-lasting recovery skills that our clients establish during their treatment include:
The goal of our center is to offer the best possible outcomes for our clients. We do this by staying abreast of the newest trends and research in addiction treatment and incorporate those changes into our best practices.

After completing a comprehensive assessment by our multidisciplinary clinical team, you will work with a counselor to develop a personalized treatment plan. This treatment plan will completely address your emotional and physical health, as well as family support, nutritional guidance and spirituality. Some of the ways we address these needs are through:
Watching someone you love struggle with an addiction is devastating and draining. The addiction can make your family member behave in ways that are completely out of character. You may be dealing with intense feelings of anger, frustration, and anxiety in addition to worries about your loved one’s recovery.
Addiction affects the entire family, whether a parent is abusing prescription opioids or a spouse has developed an addiction to illegal street drugs. To help heal fractured relationships, BARC offers a family program that includes education about the disease of addiction as well as suggestions for how family members can practice self-care while providing their loved ones with the support they need to stay clean and sober.
“Addiction is a family disease. One person may use, but the whole family suffers.” – Anonymous
It’s also about rebuilding relationships that have been damaged in the course of the addiction. At BARC, we understand that your entire family needs support. We offer a comprehensive family program for spouses, parents, and adult children of clients seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction.
Our family program emphasizes both education and support. Education is provided about the effects of addiction on key brain circuits and how, in recovery, those brain circuits can be re-wired. This concept of rewiring the brain is not only useful and practical…it is also incredibly hopeful.
Emotional support is also a key component of our family program. Knowing that you are not alone is a powerful and comforting thought that you can experience by participating in your loved one’s recovery. Family therapy and educational workshops provide you with the opportunity to learn and to support your loved one in finding new ways to have healthier relationships.
BARCs commitment to helping our clients break free from the burden of addiction doesn’t end after discharge from residential treatment. In fact, we begin building your plan for discharging from treatment as soon as you are admitted.
Just as residential services are individualized to meet your unique needs, so are the plans for ongoing support after graduating the Bel Aire Recovery Center program. Your treatment team will research all possible support services in your home area and connect you with resources that will give you the best chance of long-term success. Some of these resources include:
When you graduate from Bel Aire Recovery Center you will receive a detailed plan outlining aftercare resources in your home community. These resources are critical to your ongoing recovery work and can provide the accountability, structure and support you’ll need to continue your transformation.
We also keep in touch with you post-discharge, and love the opportunity to keep updated about your recovery efforts. We will assist in finding new aftercare opportunities when necessary.
