Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.
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.
Dual-Diagnosis Treatment at Action Counseling - Aurora
Dual Diagnosis is a specific relationship between two or more disorders that have the same symptoms and can sometimes be treated together. This is used in the treatment planning process when dealing with drug addicts. Dual diagnosis can be viewed as a chronic medical condition that has comorbid psychiatric disorders.
Although addiction and a mental illness may have separate symptoms that are not easy to detect, they often go hand in hand. Many times, drug abuse is a direct result of the mental illness. In other words, treating the addiction will not resolve all of your issues. Unless you also treat the underlying mental illness, you will not be successful in achieving sobriety.
Alcohol Abuse, Dual Diagnosis (Co-Occuring Disorders)
Levels of Care Offered
Action Counseling - Aurora offers a variety of treatment.
This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Outpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.
An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction, or a co-occurring disorder. The patient must attend the Colorado facility for their therapy and other programs but are able to return home each night. The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of Action Counseling - Aurora‘s program is complete.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
Aftercare is a term that’s used to refer to any sort of continuing care offered for a drug addict who has voluntarily entered a rehabilitation program. This type of care can be provided in several settings, including outpatient therapy sessions after the addict has completed an inpatient program. There are also 12-step support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, which can provide additional help for addicts trying to stay sober.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this Aurora, CO Facility.
Individual Therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. Therapists work with patients to identify the root of their addiction and figure out how to better handle the issues that led to them using drugs. Individual Therapy is the one-on-one session where people meet with their therapist. Individual therapy provides a safe space for people to open up and discuss personal and sensitive topics which they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting.
Couples therapy at Action Counseling - Aurora focuses on addiction treatment for the addict and their spouse. The addict’s family, not just the addict, can benefit from this form of therapy. Couples therapy addresses communication problems, trust issues, lack of intimacy, and abuse in intimate relationships. Couples therapy can help rebuild trust between partners, which increases the chances for successful treatment and sustained recovery.
Intimate relationships can be damaged during addiction, and professional help may be necessary to rebuild the often destroyed trust and love. Couples therapy at Action Counseling - Aurora helps couples improve communication and rebuild trust. Either or both partners will be helped by this treatment administered by professionals. This treatment can also help one or both partners if addiction is the problem.
Family therapy will also help families realize that the addiction is not their fault. For many years, people blamed themselves for an addict’s behavior and felt that they had done something wrong. This is not the case. Addiction is a disease, and it can strike anyone, even if their life seems fine from the outside. It can bring a lot of shame to a family when they have an addict in their midst, but if everyone is open and honest with each other, then they can help everyone stay in recovery.
Group Therapy is utilized by drug treatment centers like Action Counseling - Aurora to provide the recovering drug addict with a platform to talk about their feelings and experiences. It also provides for an opportunity to learn from other addicts who have successfully overcome their addiction.
Group Therapy is employed in lectures, seminars, or discussion groups (the latter two are typically conducted as “therapy groups”). It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work (though it does not exclude others with lived experience).
Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions. Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them.
(REBT) was developed by Dr. Albert Ellis in 1955. The therapy is based on the premise that our beliefs lead to and maintain our emotions and behaviors. Therefore, if a person has irrational thoughts, they will have an unhealthy emotional life. And as long as those irrational beliefs remain unchanged, they will continue to have unhealthy emotions and behaviors.
REBT is a purely psychological therapy, meaning it does not incorporate the use of medications or supplements. Instead, REBT focuses on helping people understand, respect, and accept their feelings without judgment, enabling them to have more control over their actions and behaviors.
The therapeutic process is straightforward: clients learn to identify the irrational beliefs that cause distress, challenge good coping statements, and replace them with healthy, rational beliefs.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a treatment that helps people recovering from drug abuse. EMDR has been proven to be more effective than traditional treatments for treating patients with addiction; it tackles the root of the problem. The rapid eye movements during EMDR sessions reduce the patient’s negative feelings related to past trauma, promoting calmness and relaxation. This, in turn, reduces the chances of relapse at a later stage.
Aftercare, Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT), Couples Therapy, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Family Therapy, Group Therapy, Individual Therapy, Outpatient Treatment (OP), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Residential Long Term (>30 Days), Sober-Living / Half-Way, Trauma Therapy
