    Drug Rehabilitation

    Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.

    Alcoholism Treatment at A Nu Direction

    Alcoholism treatment involves addiction education, individual psychotherapy, group therapy, and family therapy. Treatment for alcoholism often involves medical detoxification, in which a person is hospitalized for observation and medical support due to intense and often dangerous withdrawal symptoms. The goal of alcoholism treatment at A Nu Direction is complete abstinence from alcohol.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

    Opioid addiction treatment helps people addicted to opioids in Alabama curb their drug use. The selection of a treatment setting depends on the severity of the addiction. Mild cases are usually treated in outpatient facilities; severe cases need hospitalization or treatment in a residential facility. Doctors use medicines along with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat the addiction. The treatment includes medication, counseling and therapy. It can also include group counseling, individual counseling and family counseling.

    Aftercare Support

    After treatment, addiction treatment can be frightening for newly sober people. Aftercare support provided by A Nu Direction is designed to give resources and help on a continued basis. It can involve finding housing in and around Alabama, setting up 12-step meeting groups, continued medical monitoring, and counseling.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at A Nu Direction.

    Group Therapy, Individual Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Nicotine Replacement Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Trauma Therapy

    Individual Therapy

    Individual professional counseling or individual therapy refers to the one-on-one interaction between a patient and his or her counselor at A Nu Direction in Wetumpka, Alabama. Individual therapy allows for more privacy, one that group interactions can’t provide. It makes it easier for the counselor and the patient to deal with the central issues, which are likely the culprits of substance addiction.

    Group Counseling

    Group therapy is an important tool in recovery. Finding a peer group in Wetumpka, AL and others who relate to your situation is a fundamental tool for recovery at A Nu Direction. Addiction tends to lead to isolation and feelings of uniqueness. The accountability and friendship that is found in group therapy can be more effective than any single other treatment approach. This is generally introduced early in recovery and is recommended as a lifetime treatment habit.

    Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)

    Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is a treatment that helps people to quit smoking. In nicotine replacement therapy, a controlled amount of nicotine is provided in the form of gums, patches, or sprays. They do not contain the harmful chemicals usually found in tobacco products. NRT reduces the withdrawal symptoms by giving nicotine in low doses. However, NRT provides relief only from the physical withdrawal symptoms. The emotional and psychological aspects of quitting needs to be treated separately. While NRT is safe for most adults, teens and pregnant women should not undergo NRT. Research shows that the use of NRT doubles the chances of quitting smoking.

    Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (REBT)

    Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) is a variation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that helps people understand how maladaptive, negative, and habitual thoughts and feelings lead to bad life choices. REBT is based on the idea that people operate under many irrational but habitual patterns of thought that fuel harmful practices.

    Trauma Therapy

    Trauma therapy is a way of addressing trauma while in a safe situation in order to heal. This may involve A Nu Direction managing individual or group counseling or both. Other forms of therapy have been proven to assist in healing past traumas.
