Treatment At Mainstream Counseling

Conditions Treated

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.

Levels Of Care

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.

Regular outpatient treatment:

Regular Outpatient Treatment is a flexible and accessible option for individuals seeking recovery from addiction or substance abuse. This program typically involves attending therapy and counseling sessions on a part-time basis, often ranging from one to three sessions per week. These sessions are designed to provide essential support, guidance, and tools for individuals to overcome addiction, manage cravings, and work towards a healthier, sober lifestyle. Regular Outpatient Treatment offers the advantage of maintaining daily routines and responsibilities while receiving the necessary therapeutic interventions to foster lasting recovery.

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.

Treatment Modalities

Cognitive behavioral therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely practiced form of psychotherapy that seeks to address dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts through a goal-oriented, systematic process. It encourages individuals to challenge distorted cognitions and change destructive patterns of behavior by promoting self-awareness and effective coping strategies. CBT is often used to treat a range of disorders including anxiety, depression, and stress, making it a versatile and practical therapeutic approach. Through enhancing an individual's capacity to manage life's challenges, CBT contributes to improved mental well-being and overall quality of life.

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.

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 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.

Treatment for gambling disorder:

Treatment for compulsive gambling can vary based on individual needs and available resources. Options may include outpatient, inpatient, or residential programs. Some individuals may also consider self-help approaches, like structured internet-based programs or telephone consultations with mental health professionals. In certain cases, treatment may encompass addressing co-occurring issues such as substance misuse, depression, anxiety, or other mental health concerns as part of the overall plan to effectively address compulsive gambling.

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.

Family counseling:

Family counseling is a therapeutic approach that addresses the dynamics, interactions, and challenges within a family unit. Through guided discussions and interventions, a trained counselor helps family members understand one another, resolve conflicts, improve communication, and strengthen their bonds. This form of therapy can be beneficial for families facing transitions, stressors, or behavioral issues, promoting understanding and facilitating positive change in the familial environment.

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.

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.

Contingency management/motivational incentives:

Contingency management and motivational incentives are evidence-based treatment modalities used in addiction and behavioral health programs. Contingency management involves the use of rewards to reinforce positive behaviors and change negative behaviors, while motivational incentives provide incentives to engage in treatment and sustain recovery. Both approaches are designed to increase motivation and engagement in treatment and have been shown to be effective in promoting positive outcomes.

Motivational interviewing:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) in addiction treatment is a client-centered counseling approach designed to enhance an individual's intrinsic motivation to change. By addressing ambivalence and tapping into personal values, MI fosters meaningful conversations about substance use and promotes commitment to recovery-focused goals.

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.

Relapse prevention:

The Relapse Prevention Model is a therapeutic approach designed to equip individuals with strategies and tools to anticipate and cope with potential relapses, especially during the recovery from addictive behaviors or other maladaptive habits. Drawing on cognitive-behavioral techniques, it emphasizes the identification of high-risk situations, developing coping mechanisms, and enhancing self-efficacy. This model fosters long-term behavior change by helping individuals recognize early warning signs of relapse and empowering them to take proactive steps to maintain their recovery.

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.

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.
