Services that we offer
Individual counseling involves patients speaking with a counselor or therapist about their addiction in a one-to-one setting. This type of counseling will often incorporate different forms of behavioral therapies such as CBT in order to help the patient understand their psychological relationship with substance abuse and develop techniques to manage cravings and future temptation.
Group counseling can takes place in both inpatient and outpatient settings and involves those afflicted with substances use disorders/behavioral addictions meeting to discuss their issues. This form of counseling can help create a level of empathy and understanding of others journeys with addiction, which can help to give perspective on an individual's addiction. It also helps to build a support network which helps reduce relapse and promotes positive relationships outside of substance abuse.
Family counseling for substance use disorders and behavioral addictions helps the patient repair relationships with those close to them through open dialogue around past miss doings that were caused by addiction. This helps reestablish trust and builds a support network for the patient.
Addiction can be devastating to marriages and relationships. Through counseling the addict and their loved one can explore how the addiction has affected their relationship, what needs to change for things to improve, and rebuild trust.
Anger is a powerful emotion and one that is often closely tied to addiction. Many people with behavioral or substance addictions will experience anger in many forms, both internally and externally. Anger management combined with other evidence based treatment can help patients control their emotions and evaluate situations without resorting to anger.
Brief intervention aims to inform people who are abusing drugs and alcohol at a high level of the risk of dependence and addiction. The interventions are usually targeted at those who are yet to develop a substance use disorder but who are displaying the signs of potentially becoming addicted.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a commonly used type of therapy widely used in addiction treatment, rehab and recovery as a way of identifying emotional triggers that lead to substance abuse and developing methods to control them.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is often recommended as an evidence-based approach to behavior change and is often used in addiction treatment. MI is a more collaborative approach to therapy and requires patient and counselor to explore issues without advice, judgment, or a set path laid out.
The Relapse Prevention (RP) model is widely used in alcohol and drug rehab treatments. It uses CBT practises to prepare those approaching the end of rehab treatment to begin a life of sobriety without falling into old habits of substance abuse.
Substance use disorder counseling can incorporate a wide variety of therapies and and treatment models.
Many people who have experienced trauma will turn to drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism, which often leads to dependence and addiction. Receiving counseling for trauma in line with addiction treatment can help uncover the connection between them and learn to manage the emotional reactions to trauma that cause substance misuse.
12-step programs have been helping those suffering from alcohol and drug addictions for nearly 100 years. They offer a guided path toward recovery that is not based on rigidity but practice and self improvement. They can also provide a support network of people who empathise with and understand the challenges of addiction recovery.
Outpatient treatment centers offer the same level of care as inpatient settings while also allowing the patient to be able to return home each day
Residential rehab offers the most all-encompassing form of addiction treatment. Those opting for residential treatment will receive around-the-clock care in a substance-free environment, as well as a safe space to detox under medical supervision.
IOP requires patients to attend day treatment for three hours a day, often for five days a week but declining as recovery improves.
Long-term residential care lasts in excess of thirty days (often ninety) and incorporates a wide range of evidence based treatments and therapy, as well as full detoxification
A short-term residential treatment will often last for thirty days and will incorporate detoxification, evidence based treatments, therapy, medication-assisted treatment, and a comprehensive recovery plan
The safest and most effective way of tackling detox is through an alcohol rehab center with dedicated medical supervision. This reduces the risks of medical complications caused by withdrawal and reduces the likelihood of relapse
The physical and psychological effects of benzodiazepine withdrawal, such as seizures and suicidal ideation, are potentially life-threatening and should always be treated by medical professionals in a medically supervised detox.
The first stages of cocaine addiction treatment begin with an initial detox. During cocaine detoxification, the drug is cleared from the body while a healthcare professional manages withdrawal symptoms and keeps the patient calm and comfortable
Most people experiencing opioid withdrawal will begin to feel symptoms within the first 8-24 hours after their last dose, and sometimes even sooner. Without a monitored detoxification, these intense withdrawal symptoms will often cause the sufferer to relapse. Opioid detoxification can include a course of medication to help alleviate cravings and manage uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.
Clonidine is used to reduce the symptoms of stimulant and opioid withdrawal and is primarily used in the detoxification process
