The majority of men and women who suffer from substance use dependency also have a co-occurring psychological disorder, such as depression or anxiety. Upon arrival at our drug rehab facility, each patient will meet with the on-staff psychiatrist, who will carefully evaluate him or her for any potential underlying dual diagnosis disorders.
Each patient will be reevaluated several times throughout their stay and will be treated for any professionally diagnosed disorders concurrently. We must treat substance dependency and any co-occurring disorders simultaneously – this will ensure comprehensive, thorough, and long-term healing.
Trauma and Addiction
Over the past several decades, addiction treatment has put a particular emphasis on the role of previous traumatic experience in the psychological fitness and behavioral patterns of individuals suffering from substance dependency and alcoholism.
Somewhere around 85% of all individuals seeking addiction treatment have suffered some form of sexual, physical, or emotional trauma in their lifetimes. Individuals with sexual abuse are 13 times more likely to abuse alcohol and 26 times more likely to abuse drugs than those who were not. The connection between trauma and addiction require simultaneous treatment options.
Family counseling plays a vital role in the success of the patient’s long-term success from the turmoil of drug or alcohol addiction. Providing support enables the therapist to assess the family system and all the unique issues the family has experienced. The purpose is to assist the family as well as the patient to understand the disease of addiction. Family counseling aims to encourage understanding and collaboration among family members to solve the issues within the system and enhance communication, trust, and honesty.
Almost sixty percent of people relapse after completing a substance abuse treatment program. However, most of the time, this happens because individuals return to toxic or unhealthy environments. Relapse prevention gives patients the tools they need to manage triggers and emotions. Not to mention, it provides a safe space for continuum care, support, and life-long development. Most patients benefit from relapse prevention programs and move on to live clean and sober lives.
Life Skills Development
Identifying the areas of improvement you need for recovery is one of the most important goals of rehab. From the time you enter our facility, your treatment team will be working in conjunction with you to help you develop new life skills and find practical tools for daily living.
Life skills enhancement is a way for individuals to learn a more effective way to navigate through life without the use of drugs and alcohol.
Recovery is about creating a healthy new life that gives you a sense of purpose, meaning, and direction.
The consequences of addiction may be similar for most patients, but the treatment of addiction must be individualized to be genuinely useful. A “one-size-fits-all” model does a disservice to the diverse individuals seeking help, who come from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences.
At our drug and alcohol rehab, we offer tailored programs to serve special populations based on needs, strengths, and goals. We are offering unique support to students wishing to continue with academics, individuals with pending legal proceedings, patients with medical needs, and the LGBTQ+ community.
The ability to honestly and authentically open up in a group setting is a necessary component of lifelong addiction recovery. Even after drug rehab, recovering addicts and alcoholics will find the clear majority of their support within a group.
Not only does group therapy foster the ability to relate to one another, but it helps facilitate the supporting, nurturing, and genuine relationships amongst members that will prove essential down the line for accountability. Group therapy gives recovering addicts the opportunity to learn new coping techniques, practice their communication skills, and gain hope and strength from their peers.
In individual therapy, a patient works with a licensed professional in private sessions to acquire self-knowledge, insight into their addiction, and coping skills for their maladaptive behaviors.
The session objectives can frequently change throughout treatment. They can shift focus to a variety of clinical topics to include the patient’s process in addiction treatment, personal obstacles to recovery, interactions with family outside of addiction treatment, cravings, new coping skills, and goals. The frequency of therapy depends on the patient’s needs.
