Treatment At Harbor House

Conditions Treated

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.

Alcoholism:

Alcohol addiction is a disease that changes the way the brain works. It causes negative emotions, impulsive behavior, cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Treatment for alcohol addiction includes supervised detox, counseling and therapy, and support group participation. Rehabilitation does not cure alcoholism. Instead, it helps the individual manage their addiction, restore their functioning, and well-being.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Substance use treatment:

Substance use rehabilitation represents a holistic treatment strategy tailored to aid individuals grappling with drug or alcohol addiction. This comprehensive rehabilitation method encompasses two key aspects: first, addressing the physical dependency, often commencing with detoxification, and second, tackling the psychological triggers through a range of therapeutic techniques. The ultimate aim is to empower individuals to attain and sustain sobriety while providing them with the necessary skills and coping mechanisms to successfully reintegrate into society and lead a life free from substance abuse.

Co-occurring Disorders:

Dual-diagnosis rehabs are usually the appropriate solution to treat co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. These facilities typically employ medical and behavioral experts who use a range of interventions, together with the right healing environment, for you to achieve and sustain long-term recovery. Treatment usually includes evidence-based therapies (like cognitive behavioral therapy), recovery support meetings, 12-step facilitation, psychoeducation, skills training, and group therapy.

Levels Of Care

Intensive outpatient treatment:

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) support clients in maintaining long-term sobriety by providing tailored, high-quality care that adapts to their changing requirements. Clients participate in several treatment sessions each week, typically receiving between nine to 20 hours of outpatient care weekly. As clients achieve stability, the treatment frequency and intensity gradually diminish. Many intensive outpatient rehabilitation centers provide a diverse range of services, such as addiction counseling, training in life skills geared towards recovery, and the option for medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Additionally, evidence-based complementary therapies are frequently integrated into the program.

Detoxification:

Detoxification, often shortened to detox, is like giving the body a fresh start by getting rid of harmful substances like drugs or alcohol someone may have taken. When a person stops taking these substances, they might feel sick or uncomfortable as their body adjusts to the change. Detox helps ease these uncomfortable feelings while making sure the harmful substances are removed from the body in a safe way. This process helps prevent any additional harm caused by the drugs or alcohol.

Aftercare:

Finishing a drug or alcohol rehab program is just the beginning of the recovery journey. Aftercare focuses on establishing a long-term recovery plan, which encompasses continuous support. This might involve options such as residing in sober living homes or halfway houses, receiving career guidance, and connecting the individual with community support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Halfway house:

A sober living residence provides a nurturing atmosphere where individuals in recovery offer each other mutual support while sharing household duties. Residents actively engage in 12-step programs and hold one another accountable for maintaining sobriety. To continue residing in either a men's or women's sober living environment, individuals must stay free from drugs and alcohol, actively contribute to household responsibilities, attend support group meetings, and contribute to the living expenses of the home.

Outpatient:

Outpatient treatment in a rehab center offers structured therapeutic services for individuals seeking recovery without full-time residential admission. Unlike intensive outpatient programs, which demand more frequent and longer sessions, standard outpatient care provides a more flexible approach, allowing participants to maintain daily activities and responsibilities while undergoing treatment.

Hospital inpatient treatment:

Inpatient treatment involves an intensive, residential therapeutic program designed to treat serious addictions or other medical conditions. With a typical stay ranging from 30 to 90 days, individuals receive a structured regimen of various therapies including individual and group counseling, behavioral therapies, and family counseling. Under professional supervision, patients immerse themselves in a supportive environment, conducive to addressing underlying issues and promoting long-term recovery.

Short-term residential:

Short-term residential rehab programs provide an intensive and focused approach to addiction recovery. These programs typically last a few weeks to a few months, making them ideal for individuals with work or family commitments. They offer round-the-clock care, counseling, and support to help clients stabilize, develop coping skills, and create a recovery plan. In contrast to long-term rehab, which extends for months or years, short-term programs are more time-efficient, making them a suitable choice for those seeking intensive treatment with limited time availability.

Long-term residential:

Extended treatment plans frequently encompass residential initiatives where patients stay on-site throughout their therapy, tailored to their specific requirements. Professionals are available 24/7 at these facilities to provide continuous assistance. Treatment durations can vary, from 90-day rehabs to half-year stays, annual programs, or even up to two-year durations if necessary.

Residential detoxification:

Residential Detox is a specialized and structured program designed to provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals struggling with substance abuse or addiction to undergo the initial stages of withdrawal and detoxification. In a residential detox setting, individuals receive round-the-clock medical supervision and care to manage the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal that can occur when discontinuing the use of drugs or alcohol. This type of treatment typically takes place in a residential facility or treatment center, allowing individuals to focus solely on their recovery without the distractions and triggers of their everyday life. Residential detox is an essential first step toward sobriety and is often followed by further addiction treatment and therapy to support long-term recovery.

Outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization:

Outpatient day treatment or partial hospitalization level of care is a type of mental health treatment that provides a high level of care outside of a traditional inpatient setting. It typically involves intensive therapy and support services for several hours each day, several days per week. This level of care is designed for individuals who require more support than traditional outpatient therapy but do not need 24-hour inpatient care.

Regular outpatient treatment:

Regular Outpatient Treatment typically involves scheduled therapy sessions that occur on a part-time basis, allowing individuals to receive the necessary support and guidance while maintaining their daily routines. These outpatient sessions are generally held multiple times a week, with the exact frequency tailored to the individual's needs and progress. The number of sessions per week can vary, but it commonly ranges from two to five sessions, providing a flexible and effective approach to addiction recovery and mental health treatment.

Treatment Modalities

12-step facilitation:

Recovery frameworks grounded in 12-step programs prioritize peer mentoring and underline personal development as essential for maintaining sobriety. Those in recovery are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings, which guarantee anonymity frequently, have no cost, and are accessible every day. These 12 steps draw from spiritual tenets, assisting participants in confronting the underlying reasons for their addiction, acknowledging their decisions, and embracing the aspects outside their control. Chosen by the participants themselves, sponsors offer individualized guidance and support.

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.

Trauma-related counseling:

Trauma-related counseling is a specialized form of therapeutic intervention aimed at assisting individuals who have experienced distressing, life-altering events. This approach focuses on helping clients process their traumatic experiences, develop coping mechanisms, and rebuild a sense of safety and trust. Counselors trained in trauma therapy use evidence-based techniques to support healing and resilience, ensuring survivors can move forward and lead fulfilling lives despite their past adversities.

Individual psychotherapy:

Individual Psychotherapy is a personalized therapeutic approach aimed at aiding individuals in overcoming addiction and its underlying psychological triggers. A licensed therapist works closely with the individual through one-on-one sessions to unearth and address personal challenges, emotional issues, and behavioral patterns contributing to their substance abuse. Individual psychotherapy lays a robust foundation for a sustainable recovery and a better quality of life by fostering self-awareness, coping strategies, and healthier behavioral responses.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy:

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a psychotherapeutic approach designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. Originated by Francine Shapiro in the late 1980s, EMDR involves a structured eight-phase approach where the patient recalls distressing images while receiving bilateral sensory input, typically in the form of guided eye movements. This process allows the brain to reprocess traumatic memories, reducing their emotional charge and helping individuals integrate these memories more adaptively. EMDR is widely recognized for its effectiveness in treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related psychological disorders.

Hypnotherapy:

Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that employs guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness, commonly referred to as a trance. Utilized in treatment centers, hypnotherapy taps into the subconscious mind, allowing individuals to explore deep-seated thoughts, emotions, and memories that might be hidden from their conscious mind. This approach can help patients address and overcome various issues, such as phobias, pain management, stress, addictive behaviors, and traumatic experiences. By unlocking these subconscious barriers, hypnotherapy paves the way for transformative healing and behavioral change.

Holistic Treatment:

Holistic Treatment refers to an integrative approach to addiction recovery and rehabilitation that addresses the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of an individual's well-being. Beyond just focusing on the addiction itself, this approach emphasizes whole-person healing and often incorporates alternative therapies such as acupuncture, yoga, meditation, and nutritional counseling. By treating the entire person and not just the symptoms of addiction, holistic treatment aims to ensure a more balanced and sustainable recovery.

Cognitive behavioral therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a evidence-based psychological treatment that focuses on identifying and challenging negative thought patterns and behaviors. It aims to develop coping strategies and promote healthier thinking to address a variety of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, and stress. CBT is typically short-term and goal-oriented, emphasizing the role of thought processes in influencing emotions and behaviors.

Telemedicine/telehealth therapy:

Telehealth Therapy enables individuals to access mental health services remotely through digital technology. Utilizing secure video conferencing, individuals can engage with qualified therapists from the comfort of their home, overcoming geographical barriers and often reducing waiting times. This level of care offers a flexible and accessible approach to mental health support, especially beneficial for those with mobility issues, busy schedules, or residing in rural or underserved areas.

Substance use disorder counseling:

Substance use disorder counseling treatment modalities refer to various approaches and methods used in the counseling and treatment of individuals with substance use problems. This can include individual therapy, group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, family therapy, and 12-step programs. The goal is to help the individual overcome their substance use, develop healthy coping skills, and lead a fulfilling life in recovery.

Smoking/vaping/tobacco cessation counseling:

Tobacco cessation counseling encompasses discussions with a counselor regarding your tobacco or vape usage and its integration into your daily routine, with the goal of devising a strategy to quit. This service caters to individuals desiring to quit tobacco, offering interventions like behavioral support or counseling in groups or one-on-one settings. The counseling sessions may range from brief encounters (under 5 minutes) to more intensive discussions (exceeding 10 minutes) and may necessitate multiple sessions.

Treatment for gambling disorder:

Gambling Disorder, also known as compulsive gambling, is a recognized behavioral addiction characterized by an uncontrollable urge to gamble despite detrimental personal and financial consequences. Treatment for this disorder typically involves a combination of therapeutic approaches. These include cognitive-behavioral therapy to address underlying triggers and patterns of thought, group support sessions such as Gamblers Anonymous, and sometimes medications to address co-existing mental health conditions like depression or anxiety.

Family counseling:

Family counseling is a therapeutic approach that addresses the dynamics, interactions, and challenges within a family unit. Through guided discussions and interventions, a trained counselor helps family members understand one another, resolve conflicts, improve communication, and strengthen their bonds. This form of therapy can be beneficial for families facing transitions, stressors, or behavioral issues, promoting understanding and facilitating positive change in the familial environment.

Marital/couples counseling:

Marital/couples counseling treatment modalities refer to various therapeutic approaches used to help couples resolve conflicts, improve communication, and strengthen their relationship. These modalities can include cognitive-behavioral therapy, emotionally focused therapy, solution-focused therapy, and integrative approaches. The goal of these treatments is to help couples identify and address underlying issues and develop healthy relationship dynamics.

Intervention Services:

Intervention refers to organized efforts designed to guide individuals away from potentially harmful behaviors or decisions and towards healthier alternatives. Often used in the context of substance abuse or addiction, these services employ a structured approach where professionals, loved ones, and peers come together to confront the individual in a supportive manner, emphasizing the need for change and providing pathways for treatment or assistance. The goal is to break through denial, facilitate recognition of the problem, and initiate positive change.

Motivational interviewing:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) in addiction treatment is a client-centered counseling style aimed at promoting behavior change by helping clients explore and resolve ambivalence. Through empathetic engagement and evoking change talk, MI empowers individuals to harness their own motivation to overcome addiction, leading to a self-directed path to recovery. This approach respects individual autonomy while supporting positive change in a compassionate, non-confrontational manner.

Anger management:

"Anger Management" refers to a set of therapeutic techniques and exercises that help individuals recognize the signs of their growing anger and take action to calm down and deal with situations in a constructive manner. It aims to reduce both emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger can cause, ensuring that anger does not lead to aggressive outbursts or other harmful actions. Individuals can navigate tense situations with more remarkable composure and control by understanding triggers and developing healthy coping strategies.

Relapse prevention:

The Relapse Prevention Model is a cognitive-behavioral approach designed to teach individuals who are trying to maintain behavioral changes (like sobriety from drugs or alcohol) how to anticipate and cope with the potential for relapse. The model emphasizes the importance of understanding the processes and triggers that lead to relapse, developing strategies to prevent initial lapse, and minimizing the severity and duration if a lapse occurs. It's grounded in the belief that relapses can be viewed as learning opportunities, helping individuals strengthen their commitment and skills to avoid future setbacks.
