Treatment At Van Zandt Medical Center - DuBois VA Outpatient Clinic

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.

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

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.

Treatment Modalities

Couples/family therapy:

Couples Therapy is a specialized form of counseling designed to help couples navigate and improve their relationships. In this therapeutic process, a trained therapist or counselor works with couples to address communication issues, conflicts, and emotional challenges within their partnership. Couples Therapy provides a safe and supportive environment for couples to explore their feelings, understand each other's perspectives, and develop effective strategies for building stronger, more fulfilling connections. It can be instrumental in fostering healthier relationships, enhancing intimacy, and promoting long-term relationship satisfaction.

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.

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.

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.

Telemedicine/telehealth therapy:

Telehealth Therapy allows individuals to access mental health services remotely via secure video conferencing. This level of care offers qualified therapy from the comfort of one's home, removing geographical barriers and often reducing wait times. Ideal for those with mobility challenges, tight schedules, or those in rural areas, it combines convenience with consistent, high-quality mental health support.

Smoking/vaping/tobacco cessation counseling:

Tobacco Cessation Counseling is a specialized form of guidance and support aimed at helping individuals quit tobacco use. Through a combination of motivational strategies, behavioral techniques, and education on the health risks associated with tobacco, trained counselors assist users in understanding their addiction, developing a personalized quit plan, and navigating the challenges of withdrawal and relapse prevention. This counseling approach can significantly increase the likelihood of successfully quitting and maintaining a tobacco-free lifestyle.

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.

Abnormal involuntary movement scale:

The "Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale" (AIMS) is a clinician-rated tool used to evaluate the presence and severity of involuntary movements, often associated with certain medications. It's commonly employed in assessing tardive dyskinesia in patients on antipsychotic drugs.
