Conditions Treated

Mental health treatment:

Mental health treatment involves a range of therapeutic approaches, provided by licensed professionals, to address mental health challenges. It includes psychotherapy, medication, and holistic practices to help individuals manage conditions, improve coping skills, and enhance overall well-being. The goal is to empower individuals to lead fulfilling lives and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.

Alcoholism:

Alcohol addiction is a health problem where drinking takes control over a person's life. It affects how their brain thinks and acts, leading to strong desires to drink, bad feelings, sudden actions, and discomfort when not drinking. To help someone with this problem, there are treatments like detox, counseling, group support, and learning coping methods. While treatment can't completely cure the urge to drink, it helps people regain control of their lives and feel better overall.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabilitation centers are dedicated to assisting individuals overcoming opioid dependence. They cater to those battling addiction from illicit opioids such as heroin, as well as those addicted to prescription medications like oxycodone. These facilities may provide a holistic approach that encompasses both physical care, which often involves medical detox and ongoing medical assistance (including medications), and psychological care through comprehensive therapy to tackle the root causes of addiction.

Substance use treatment:

Substance abuse treatment programs can help to address addiction and, if relevant, any co-occurring mental health conditions. Programs include outpatient, inpatient, dual-diagnosis, and partial hospitalization. The addict will receive therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy, or dialectical behavioral therapy, and sometimes complementary therapies like acupuncture and mindfulness-based therapy. By attending skills training and recovery groups you’ll build a strong foundation for your recovery and strengthen your support network, increasing your chances of long-term recovery success.

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

Partial Hospitalization Program:

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an intensive, structured rehabilitation service designed for individuals exhibiting acute symptoms that demand significant intervention but not continuous 24-hour care. Typically spanning 3-5 days a week and lasting from 1 to 6 months, these sessions run for approximately 6 hours a day, focusing on activities like individual and group therapy. Some PHPs provide residential accommodations for overnight stays, while others are non-residential, allowing participants to go home at the end of the day.

Hospital inpatient detoxification:

Hospital Inpatient Detoxification is a comprehensive medical intervention designed for individuals who require intensive care and supervision while undergoing withdrawal from alcohol, drugs, or other addictive substances. This setting provides round-the-clock medical monitoring, ensuring the safety and well-being of patients as they transition through the acute phase of detoxification.

Intensive outpatient treatment:

Intensive Outpatient (IOP) is a form of structured therapy designed to support individuals in recovery from addiction, mental health disorders, or other medical conditions. Unlike inpatient or residential treatment, where patients live at the facility, IOP allows individuals to receive high-level care while still living at home and maintaining specific day-to-day responsibilities. Typically, patients in IOP programs attend sessions multiple times per week, often totaling 9-20 hours or more. These sessions can include individual therapy, group therapy, family counseling, and educational classes focused on skills and strategies for managing symptoms and preventing relapse.

Detoxification:

Detoxification, often just called "detox", is like giving the body a deep clean from harmful substances like drugs or alcohol. When someone decides to stop using these substances, their body might react with tough symptoms. Detox helps to handle these reactions safely. Think of it as helping the body reset after too much exposure to harmful stuff.

Aftercare:

Aftercare is the continued support and care that individuals receive following the completion of their primary treatment program for substance abuse or addiction. This phase aims to aid individuals in maintaining their sobriety, improving personal skills and coping strategies, and integrating back into society. Aftercare can include ongoing therapy, support group meetings, education, and monitoring, which are crucial for preventing relapse and promoting long-term recovery. Through a combination of community support, accountability, and personal development, aftercare provides a structured pathway for individuals to continue their recovery journey in a supportive environment.

Outpatient:

Outpatient treatment in a rehab center offers flexible therapy sessions, typically ranging from 1-3 hours per week, allowing individuals to continue daily activities while receiving care. In contrast, intensive outpatient programs demand a more rigorous commitment, often involving 9-15 hours weekly, providing a more immersive therapeutic environment without the need for inpatient stays.

Hospital inpatient treatment:

Inpatient treatment includes an all-encompassing residential therapeutic regimen, during which patients reside on-site for a period usually spanning 30 to 90 days. Within this immersive setting, individuals receive structured assistance, prioritizing their safety and fostering a dedication to recovery. The treatment modalities offered may include individual and group counseling, cognitive-behavioral therapy, holistic interventions, family therapy sessions, as well as experiential therapies. The overarching objective is to comprehensively address the physical, emotional, and psychological dimensions of addiction or mental health disorders, establishing a resilient groundwork for long-term healing.

Treatment Modalities

Individual psychotherapy:

In individual therapy, a person engages in a one-on-one session with a qualified therapist or counselor. This therapeutic approach is crucial in successful substance abuse treatment because it delves into the underlying causes of addiction, addressing issues the individual may encounter in their familial, social, and professional or academic environments.

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.

Family counseling:

Family Counseling is a therapeutic approach that seeks to address and improve communication, understanding, and dynamics within a family unit. By addressing conflicts, emotional distress, and behavioral challenges, a trained therapist provides guidance and tools for family members to strengthen bonds, resolve issues, and foster a healthier family environment.

Marital/couples counseling:

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Life Skills:

Life skills refer to a vital component of rehabilitation that focuses on equipping individuals with the essential abilities and strategies necessary to lead a fulfilling and substance-free life. These skills encompass a wide range of practical tools, such as effective communication, problem-solving, stress management, time management, and financial literacy. By integrating life skills training into addiction treatment programs, individuals gain the confidence and competence needed to overcome addiction and thrive in their personal and social lives, promoting long-term recovery and well-being.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the critical role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It aims to identify and challenge distorted or negative thought patterns and behaviors, teaching individuals to replace them with more constructive and rational beliefs. CBT is evidence-based and has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of psychological disorders, including depression, anxiety, and phobias, among others.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral therapeutic approach primarily to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder. It combines standard cognitive-behavioral techniques with distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindfulness concepts. DBT emphasizes the balance between accepting and changing behaviors, aiming to help patients build life skills, regulate emotions, and improve interpersonal relationships. It has since been adapted for and shown effectiveness in treating a variety of other mental health conditions.

Rational Behavior Therapy:

Rational Behavior Therapy (RBT) is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on identifying self-defeating thoughts and behaviors to promote emotional well-being and goal achievement. By teaching individuals to examine and challenge their irrational beliefs, RBT aids in developing rational thought processes and fostering healthier emotional responses. Through a systematic, educative approach, individuals learn to manage their emotions, solve problems more effectively, and work towards a fulfilling life.

Motivational Interviewing:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Trauma-related counseling:

Trauma therapy delves into past traumatic events that might be influencing a client's current life experiences. Often, trauma serves as a significant precipitant or underlying cause of addiction. Such traumas can arise from childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence, growing up with a mentally ill parent, early parental loss, and experiences of sexual assault in teen or adult years, among other circumstances. Trauma therapy aims to aid the individual in processing and navigating beyond these traumas, guided by the expertise and empathy of skilled mental health specialists.

Nicotine replacement:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is a medically-approved method to aid individuals in quitting smoking. It provides a controlled and lower dose of nicotine to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and cravings, facilitating a smoother transition towards a nicotine-free life. By bypassing the harmful substances found in cigarettes, NRT offers a safer alternative while individuals work on overcoming their addiction.
