Treatment At CHC Addiction Services - Touchstone

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 structured program aimed at assisting individuals in overcoming their dependencies on drugs or alcohol. Through a combination of medical detoxification, counseling, and various therapeutic approaches, these programs strive to address the physical and psychological aspects of addiction. The goal is to equip individuals with the knowledge, skills, and support necessary to attain lasting sobriety, while also working to identify and address the underlying issues contributing to substance misuse. By fostering a supportive environment, substance use rehabilitation centers provide a pathway towards a healthier, substance-free life.

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.

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

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.

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

Couples/family therapy:

Couples Therapy in rehab helps couples facing addiction recovery by providing specialized counseling to improve their relationship. Expert therapists guide them through communication, conflict resolution, and trust-building, promoting lasting recovery and a stronger partnership.

Group counseling:

Group Counseling is a therapeutic approach where individuals come together under the guidance of a trained counselor to share experiences, offer support, and gain insights. This collective format promotes mutual understanding and growth, allowing participants to learn from one another's perspectives and challenges.

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.

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.

Integrated Mental and Substance Use Disorder treatment:

Integrated Mental and Substance Use Disorder treatment is a comprehensive approach to treating individuals with both mental health and substance use disorders. It aims to address both conditions simultaneously through a coordinated and integrated approach. The goal is to improve overall well-being and reduce the risk of relapse.

Activity therapy:

Activity Therapy is a therapeutic method where patients are encouraged to participate in organized and guided activities that stimulate their mental faculties, improve motor skills, nurture interpersonal connections, and boost self-esteem. Engaging in a variety of activities, ranging from creative arts and crafts to group games, not only serves as a distraction from negative thoughts or behaviors but also facilitates the development of coping strategies, resilience, and a sense of purpose. It offers a comprehensive approach to enhancing an individual's overall well-being during the recovery journey.

Telemedicine/telehealth therapy:

Telehealth Therapy is a remote care option that allows individuals to access mental health services via digital technology, such as secure video conferencing. This mode enables patients to engage with therapists from their homes, offering flexibility and overcoming geographical limitations. Ideal for those in rural areas, with mobility issues, or tight schedules, Telehealth Therapy ensures quality mental health support is always within reach.

Smoking/vaping/tobacco cessation counseling:

Tobacco cessation counseling is a dialogue with a counselor about your tobacco or vaping habits, examining its place in your daily life to strategize quitting. It offers interventions for individuals keen on quitting, encompassing behavioral guidance and group or one-on-one counseling. These sessions can range from short encounters (under 5 minutes) to in-depth discussions (over 10 minutes) and might require multiple meetings.

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. By stimulating bilateral brain activation through guided eye movements or other bilateral stimulation, EMDR facilitates reprocessing traumatic memories, allowing them to integrate more adaptively into an individual's cognitive schema. It has been found particularly effective for individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and is endorsed by multiple international guidelines as a recommended treatment for trauma.
