Treatment At Avenues Recovery Center of New Orleans

Conditions Treated

Mental health treatment:

Mental health treatment provides a safe and structured environment where individuals can receive professional care and support for their mental health challenges. Within the facility, trained therapists, counselors, and medical staff work together to create personalized treatment plans tailored to each person's needs. Patients might participate in a variety of therapies, including individual counseling, group therapy, and possibly medication management. The goal is to equip individuals with the tools and strategies they need to cope with their conditions and lead fulfilling lives.

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.

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 specialize in the treatment of individuals who suffer from a co-occurring mental health disorder and a substance use disorder. This complex interplay between addiction and mental health can make recovery more challenging, as each condition may exacerbate the symptoms of the other. Dual-diagnosis rehabilitation centers offer an integrated approach that addresses both issues simultaneously and often includes a comprehensive assessment for an Integrated Treatment Approach through Holistic Therapies, including family therapy and aftercare treatment.

Opioid Treatement:

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.

Levels Of Care

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.

Outpatient:

Outpatient programs cater to individuals who are in good medical condition and are not at a heightened risk of relapse, including those who have successfully finished their inpatient treatment. These programs usually build upon clients' existing treatment strategies, providing ongoing addiction counseling and educational support for recovery. Individuals who enter outpatient care right after detoxification may also undergo medical and psychological evaluations, followed by the creation of personalized treatment plans. Most outpatient rehabilitation centers offer various levels of care tailored to meet each client's specific needs.

Short-term residential:

Short-term addiction treatment empowers individuals with self-awareness and essential coping strategies for lasting recovery. These brief drug rehab programs, typically lasting 7-14 days, are suitable for those at risk of dependency, offering a crucial opportunity to boost awareness and knowledge, preventing the dangers of addiction. Short-term programs often include detox, withdrawal symptom management, counseling, and therapy services.

Long-term residential:

Long-Term Residential offers an in-depth treatment setting where individuals facing addiction reside on-site, typically for durations such as 90 days, 6 months, 1 year, or even up to 2 years. These centers focus on healing and rehabilitating patients through well-organized routines, therapeutic measures, and continuous professional support. This extended stay ensures that patients can thoroughly tackle the underlying issues of their addiction and cultivate strong coping mechanisms.

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 detoxification:

Ambulatory Detoxification, also known as outpatient detox, is a treatment approach for individuals seeking to overcome substance dependencies, such as drugs or alcohol. Under this model, patients receive medically supervised detoxification services from experienced healthcare professionals, frequently in environments such as clinics, healthcare facilities, or even the comfort of their own homes. This approach is often characterized by greater flexibility and cost-efficiency when contrasted with inpatient detoxification programs.

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.

Intensive outpatient treatment:

IOP, or Intensive Outpatient, is a structured level of care for addiction, mental health, or other conditions. Unlike inpatient care, it allows individuals live at home and maintain daily responsibilities. They attend multiple weekly sessions totaling 9-20 hours, including individual and group therapy, family counseling, and skill-building classes for symptom management and relapse prevention.

Regular outpatient treatment:

Regular outpatient treatment is a structured program that supports individuals in overcoming addiction while allowing them to maintain their daily lives. It includes therapy, counseling, and education, making it ideal for those with mild to moderate substance use disorders or in later recovery stages. This approach helps individuals build coping skills, manage triggers, and stay substance-free while staying connected to their communities and families.

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.

Halfway house:

Sober living homes or halfway houses, offer secure, substance-free, and supportive living arrangements for individuals in the process of recovering from substance abuse. These facilities are particularly beneficial for individuals who have recently completed inpatient or outpatient treatment programs. Halfway houses are carefully monitored environments with established guidelines aimed at fostering and maintaining sobriety, including curfews, shared household responsibilities, and therapeutic gatherings. Residents often receive training in essential life skills and coping strategies to facilitate a smoother transition into mainstream society. Additionally, it cultivates a strong sense of community that fosters deep and enduring connections with fellow individuals in recovery, promoting a fresh and healthy lifestyle.

Partial Hospitalization Program:

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an intensive rehabilitation option, typically designed for individuals with acute symptoms that are challenging to handle but don't necessitate round-the-clock care. PHPs provide structured therapeutic activities, which can include individual and group sessions, and generally operate 3-5 days a week, from approximately 9 am to 3 pm. While some PHPs are residential, allowing patients to stay overnight, others are non-residential, enabling patients to return home each evening. The duration of a PHP can range from 1 to 6 months, and some programs also offer transportation and meals to participants.

Treatment Modalities

Cognitive behavioral therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic approach that emphasizes the interconnectedness of thoughts, emotions, and actions. It promotes healthy reactions to thoughts and emotions, steering individuals away from harmful responses such as substance abuse. Proven effective for various addiction recoveries, CBT enhances an individual's self-awareness and self-control. Through CBT, individuals learn to better gauge their emotional well-being, communicate more effectively, and handle stress without resorting to drugs or alcohol.

Telemedicine/telehealth therapy:

Telehealth Therapy is a level of care that offers psychological counseling and therapeutic services to individuals via digital platforms, such as video conferencing, phone calls, or messaging apps. This approach allows clients to connect with qualified therapists remotely, providing increased accessibility, flexibility, and convenience, especially for those who may have mobility issues, live in remote areas, or prefer the comfort of their own environment. By leveraging technology, Telehealth Therapy bridges the gap between patients and mental health professionals, ensuring continuity of care irrespective of physical distances.

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.

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.

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 is a behavioral addiction marked by an uncontrollable urge to gamble despite harmful consequences. Treatment typically combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, group support like Gamblers Anonymous, and occasionally medications for co-existing mental health issues. The goal is to help individuals regain control and prevent future compulsive behaviors.

Group counseling:

Group therapy entails therapeutic sessions conducted in a collective setting rather than one-on-one. It encompasses various modalities, from support groups and experiential therapy to psycho-education and beyond. The approach focuses on treatment and emphasizes the dynamic interactions and shared experiences among group members.

Family counseling:

Studies consistently show that the likelihood of sustainable recovery increases when family members are involved in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic elements might influence susceptibility to drug and alcohol dependence and mental health challenges. Family interactions frequently contribute to addiction triggers. However, with the right education, family members can become pivotal support pillars during rehabilitation.

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.

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.

Intervention Services:

Intervention Services are professional services aimed at addressing and amending harmful behaviors or situations, primarily in individuals struggling with addiction or other serious issues. These services guide and support both individuals and their loved ones through the intervention process, wherein a structured, solution-oriented conversation is held to encourage the individual to accept help and make positive changes towards recovery. By blending compassionate understanding with a well-formulated approach, intervention services play a crucial role in bridging the gap between acknowledgment of an issue and taking the initial steps towards resolution.

Motivational interviewing:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client-centered therapeutic approach that fosters behavioral change by assisting individuals in exploring and resolving ambivalence. Specifically tailored for addiction treatment, MI helps clients unearth their own motivations to quit substance use and empowers them to take the lead in their recovery journey. Therapists guide clients toward their goals and self-determined pathways to sobriety through empathetic conversation and skillful questioning.

Anger management:

Anger Management is a therapeutic approach aimed at helping individuals recognize the triggers and signs of their anger and teaching them effective ways to calm down and deal with the situations in a positive manner. Through a blend of counseling, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and practical skill development, individuals learn to reduce aggressive responses, improve communication, and enhance interpersonal relationships, contributing to a better quality of life.

Matrix Model:

The Matrix Model is a well-organized, multifaceted behavioral treatment approach that incorporates evidence-supported techniques such as relapse prevention, family therapy, group therapy, psycho-education, and self-help. These components are systematically and clinically coordinated to provide a comprehensive treatment experience.

Relapse prevention:

The Relapse Prevention Model plays a pivotal role in the treatment of alcoholism. Utilizing a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), this model is particularly valuable for individuals who have experienced multiple relapses. Through this approach, those in recovery are equipped with essential coping skills, empowered for their journey, and guided in adopting healthier habits.

Treatment for other addiction disorder:

Treatment for other addiction disorders typically involve a combination of therapy and medication. This may include individual therapy, group therapy, and behavioral therapy. Medications may be prescribed to help manage symptoms and reduce cravings. Additionally, support groups and aftercare programs can be beneficial in maintaining recovery and preventing relapse. The treatment modality should be tailored to the individual's specific needs and circumstances.

Holistic Treatment:

Holistic Treatment refers to an integrated approach to recovery that addresses the physical aspects of addiction and the individual's emotional, mental, and spiritual needs. This method incorporates a variety of therapies, practices, and activities, such as nutrition, mindfulness, yoga, and counseling, to promote overall well-being, self-awareness, and balance. By treating the whole person, holistic treatment aims to ensure a more comprehensive and sustainable recovery.

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.

Dialectical behavior therapy:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a form of psychotherapy that blends cognitive-behavioral approaches with mindfulness strategies. It is particularly effective in treating addiction, as it addresses the underlying emotional pain and destructive behaviors that often accompany substance misuse. Through enhancing emotional regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness, DBT equips individuals with the coping skills necessary to maintain sobriety and improve their overall quality of life.

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.

Rational Behavior Therapy:

Rational Behavior Therapy (RBT) is a cognitive-behavioral approach to psychotherapy that emphasizes identifying, examining, and altering irrational beliefs and behaviors that contribute to emotional distress. RBT posits that emotional and behavioral disturbances are often the result of irrational thinking patterns. Through structured therapeutic sessions, individuals are taught to recognize and challenge these irrational beliefs, replacing them with more rational and adaptive thoughts, thereby promoting healthier emotional responses and behaviors.
