Break Free From the Chains of Addiction
Every individual is different and as such no two treatment plans should be alike. Make sure to find a treatment facility that offers tailored treatment programs to ensure the best experience possible. Quality treatment programs are equipped to address a wide range of issues that accompany addiction, including detox and withdrawal symptoms, co-occurring disorders, emotional distress, psychological distress, lifestyle issues, environmental and relationships problems, and specific drugs of abuse.
Integrated Treatment Programs include treatment for addiction and mental health disorders, which are often co-occurring. Sometimes people use drugs and alcohol to self-medicate and ease symptoms of mental health disorders. Anxiety, the most commonly diagnosed psychiatric disorder, is often seen in people who drink and use drugs. Addiction treatment centers aim to help teach the individual how to cope with such symptoms without causing harm themselves or their loved ones.
Alcohol abuse treatment facilities often offer two types of treatment plan – inpatient and outpatient. Inpatient programs have a residential component that provides housing, meal plans, and transportation, therapy and group sessions, as well as any necessary medical appointments. Inpatient care is the most frequent recommendation for people who have abused alcohol for any extended amount of time.
Outpatient programs are non-residential and are often for individuals that do not require the highest level of care. Outpatient care can often be conducted on a part-time basis, making it possible to work a program and work simultaneously.
Both inpatient and outpatient programs offer individual, group and family therapy. Individual therapy helps the person work through issues that he or she may not feel comfortable sharing in a group. A form of psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is a proven technique for the treatment of addiction. CBT helps the individual to identify thought processes and core beliefs and change his or her pattern of thinking to a healthier and more productive model.
Group therapy is central to treating the disease of addiction. The group aspect allows members to form strong bonds with other members given that everyone is in the same boat and working towards the same goal, sobriety. Within the group, each individual is able to sound ideas off others, give and receive feedback in a constructive, supportive, safe environment. Addiction often causes a person to become isolated and to form abusive and unstable relationships, all of which is effectively combated with group therapy.
Family therapy is a time of healing for the entire family. Family members are given educational seminars on the disease of addiction and attend group meetings with the person in treatment. Coping techniques such as identifying past behaviors that attributed to the person using are worked on, along with all other problem issues. The group as a whole is taught communication strategies to help prevent and break away from old abusive cycles.
