Treatment At Tenley Addiction Recovery

Conditions Treated

Mental health treatment:

Mental health treatment involves various therapies and support services provided by licensed professionals to address mental health issues. These interventions, which can include therapy, medication, and holistic approaches, aim to enhance well-being, improve coping, and empower individuals to lead fulfilling lives. It's personalized, comprehensive care for mental health challenges.

Alcoholism:

Alcohol addiction is a condition where a person's brain gets used to having alcohol, making it hard for them to control their drinking. This can lead to feeling down, acting without thinking, wanting alcohol strongly, and feeling sick if they don't drink. To help with this, treatment programs are available. These usually include a guided process to safely stop drinking, talking with professionals to work through problems, and joining support groups with others facing similar issues. While these treatments can't fully cure the addiction, they provide tools and support to help individuals live a better life and keep their drinking under control.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid addiction rehabilitation is a specialized treatment process tailored to address the unique challenges and complexities of opioid dependence, including drugs like heroin and prescriptions like oxycodone. The process typically begins with a medical detox to ease withdrawal symptoms, followed by therapeutic interventions to address the root causes of addiction. This holistic approach aims to provide individuals with the skills and support needed for long-term recovery from opioid use.

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 rehabilitation centers focus on treating individuals with simultaneous mental health and substance use disorders. The intertwined nature of addiction and mental health issues can intensify each other's symptoms, complicating recovery. These centers provide a holistic treatment strategy addressing both conditions together, often encompassing thorough evaluations, a blend of therapeutic methods, family counseling, and post-treatment care.

Levels Of Care

Intensive outpatient treatment:

Intensive Outpatient (IOP) is a specialized level of care aimed at assisting those on their recovery journey from addictions or mental health disorders. Unlike the inpatient or residential treatments where attendees reside within the facility, IOP offers a robust therapeutic experience while enabling participants to stay home and continue their daily routines. Generally, individuals in IOP engage in several sessions weekly, clocking in at around 9-20 hours or even more. These sessions encompass individual counseling, group sessions, familial guidance, and instructional classes that equip attendees with the tools and methods to manage symptoms and avert relapses.

Detoxification:

Detoxification, often called detox, is like a reset button for the body after someone has been using drugs or alcohol. Its main job is to help people who want to quit these substances by easing the discomfort they might feel when they stop. Think of it as a way to clean out the harmful stuff in the body when someone has been using drugs or alcohol too much. Detoxification aims to make the process of quitting safer and less painful for the person.

Aftercare:

Aftercare refers to the structured support and programs offered to individuals after completing an initial treatment phase for substance abuse or other disorders. Recognizing that recovery is an ongoing process, aftercare provides continued counseling, skill-building, group therapy, and resources to help individuals maintain sobriety, manage triggers, and reintegrate into daily life, reducing the risk of relapse and ensuring long-term success in recovery.

Halfway house:

A sober living home is a residential facility designed to support those recovering from substance abuse. Unlike inpatient rehab centers, it doesn't offer constant medical supervision but emphasizes a drug-free lifestyle. Residents adhere to set rules, such as curfews and mandatory group meetings and are often subject to random drug tests. The environment balances independence with accountability, helping residents reintegrate into society, build coping skills, and maintain sobriety while surrounded by peers who share similar recovery challenges.

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.

Treatment Modalities

12-step facilitation:

12-Step Facilitation is a structured approach employed in rehab facilities to guide individuals through a 12-step program, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, to support their recovery from addiction. This facilitation focuses on acceptance, surrender to a higher power, and engagement in a community of support. By meticulously working through each step, individuals are encouraged to develop self-awareness, seek amends, and cultivate a sober, healthier lifestyle through ongoing participation in a recovery-oriented community. This method aims at ensuring a lasting recovery by instilling a sense of accountability and fostering a supportive network of like-minded individuals.

Individual psychotherapy:

Individual therapy is a one-on-one therapeutic interaction between a therapist and a client to address personal challenges, foster self-awareness, and promote mental, emotional, and behavioral growth. This setting provides a confidential and supportive environment for individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, identify goals, and develop coping strategies. Individual therapy can be beneficial for a range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, stress management, relationship issues, and life transitions.

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 service that addresses and resolves conflicts, improves communication, and fosters better relationships within a family unit. Through guided discussions, a trained counselor helps family members gain insight into their dynamics, learn coping strategies, and work towards creating a harmonious living environment. Family Counseling can be a significant step towards improving the overall emotional health and interactions among family members, helping them navigate challenges together in a supportive and constructive manner.

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 training encompasses a comprehensive set of abilities essential for individuals to thrive in society. These encompass time management, career guidance, financial acumen, and effective communication. In the context of addiction recovery, true success goes beyond mere abstinence; it's about flourishing. Life skills instruction equips individuals with the practical tools needed to navigate society successfully, paving the way for a fulfilling life and, consequently, lasting sobriety.

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.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for addiction treatment is a comprehensive cognitive-behavioral approach initially developed to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder. Adapted for addiction, DBT emphasizes the development of four core skills: mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. Through individual and group sessions, patients learn to understand their triggers, manage negative emotions, cope with cravings, and improve relationships, all of which contribute to long-term recovery and reduced substance use.

Trauma-related counseling:

Trauma therapy addresses the deep-seated emotional and psychological wounds often linked with substance abuse disorders. Recognizing that traumatic experiences can be a root cause or a significant contributing factor to substance addiction, this therapeutic approach seeks to help individuals understand, process, and heal from their traumas. Doing so fosters emotional healing and bolsters the individual's chances of long-term recovery from addiction. Integrating trauma-informed care into addiction treatment ensures a comprehensive approach that addresses substance abuse's symptoms and underlying causes.

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.

Eating Disorder Treatment:

Eating Disorder Treatment is a specialized approach to help individuals struggling with disordered eating patterns. It involves therapies, counseling, and medical monitoring by a team of professionals to promote recovery, address underlying causes, and improve overall well-being. The goal is to establish a healthier relationship with food and self-image, facilitating long-term recovery and well-being.

Nutrition Therapy:

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is a personalized dietary approach to manage medical conditions and improve health. Spearheaded by registered dietitians or professional nutritionists, MNT involves the formulation of tailored diet plans to address specific health issues, promoting overall physical and mental well-being. Through MNT, individuals are empowered to make informed food choices, which play a pivotal role in their healthcare journey.

Creative Arts Therapy:

Creative Arts Therapy is a therapeutic approach that integrates visual arts, music, dance, drama, and other creative processes to promote emotional, mental, and social well-being. By facilitating self-expression, understanding, and healing, it aids individuals in exploring their emotions, improving self-awareness, enhancing cognitive abilities, and cultivating interpersonal skills. Tailored to each individual's needs and preferences, this modality is versatile and can be employed with diverse populations, addressing a wide range of psychological and developmental challenges.

SMART Recovery:

SMART (Self-Management & Recovery Training) offers a distinct approach to addiction recovery, presenting an alternative to traditional 12-step programs. It focuses on four key pillars: Enhancing Motivation, Managing Urges, Resolving Problems, and Achieving Lifestyle Equilibrium. In the SMART perspective, substance misuse is viewed as a maladaptive behavior rather than a disease. It prioritizes the most recent scientific insights on addiction and champions the idea that each person carves their unique journey to recovery. Within this framework, relapses are perceived as typical phases of the transformation process and can be constructive learning opportunities when addressed appropriately.
