Treatment At Birmingham VAMC - Gadsden Clinic

Conditions Treated

Alcoholism:

Alcohol addiction is when a person becomes physically and mentally dependent on alcohol, leading to mood swings, impulsive actions, intense cravings, and withdrawal symptoms. Treatment includes supervised detox, therapy, and support groups. It's important to note that rehabilitation doesn't "cure" alcoholism, but it helps individuals better manage their addiction, regain their ability to function in daily life, and improve their overall well-being.

Mental health treatment:

Mental health facilities offer a safe space for individuals to get specialized care. Trained experts create personal plans using therapies, possibly including medication. The goal is to help individuals cope better and lead fulfilling lives, with constant support and a community feel.

Substance use treatment:

Substance use rehabilitation is a comprehensive treatment approach designed to assist individuals struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol. This form of rehabilitation addresses both the physical dependency, often starting with detoxification, and the psychological triggers, using various therapeutic methods. The objective is to empower individuals to achieve and maintain sobriety, while equipping them with the tools and coping strategies needed to reintegrate into society and lead a substance-free life.

Co-occurring Disorders:

Dual-diagnosis rehabilitation centers usually offer the most suitable approach for addressing concurrent mental health and substance abuse conditions. Within these facilities, a team of medical and behavioral professionals is typically assembled, employing diverse interventions and cultivating an optimal therapeutic environment to enable you to attain and maintain lasting recovery. The treatment regimen often encompasses evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, complemented by recovery support gatherings, 12-step program facilitation, skills development, and group therapy.

Levels Of Care

Outpatient:

Outpatient programs are designed for individuals in stable medical condition with a low risk of relapse, often those who've completed inpatient treatment. These programs extend the foundation of prior treatment approaches, offering continuous addiction guidance and resources for sustained recovery. For those transitioning straight from detox, medical and psychological assessments are typically conducted, leading to the development of individualized treatment strategies. The majority of outpatient rehab centers provide diverse care levels, customized to each client's unique requirements.

Treatment Modalities

Group counseling:

Group Counseling is a therapeutic approach where individuals come together under the guidance of a trained counselor to share experiences, provide mutual support, and gain insights. It fosters a sense of community, promotes understanding through diverse perspectives, and offers personal growth and problem-solving strategies.

Cognitive behavioral therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a evidence-based psychotherapeutic approach that aims to address dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and cognitions through a goal-oriented, systematic process. It involves identifying and challenging negative thought patterns and beliefs and replacing them with more constructive ways of thinking and behaving. CBT is commonly used to treat a variety of mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, and phobias.

Telemedicine/telehealth therapy:

Telehealth provides a secure and handy way to access behavioral health care from your home. It eliminates the need for travel, time off work, or organizing childcare. A range of services, including individual therapy, group sessions, and monitoring for anxiety and depression, are available remotely. Rest assured, telehealth video sessions are not recorded, ensuring your information remains as confidential as in-person consultations.

Smoking/vaping/tobacco cessation counseling:

Vaping Cessation Counseling is a specialized form of support designed to help individuals overcome their dependence on electronic cigarettes or vaping products. Through evidence-based strategies, personalized advice, and emotional support, counselors guide individuals towards a nicotine-free life, emphasizing the long-term health benefits of cessation.
