    Outpatient Program

    Alcohol or drug addiction, or co-occurring disorders, are treated in an outpatient program. The patient must attend therapy and other programs at the facility but can return home each night.

    Outpatient treatment allows recovering addicts to live at home while receiving addiction treatment. Outpatients can attend group sessions for a few hours per week. Outpatients may also continue to work full time and study/attend school without interruption if they choose.

    The accomplishment of completing a drug or alcohol treatment program is just the first step. Once that is complete, aftercare support comes into play. This includes helping people adjust to life without substances outside of guidelines with assistance like getting sober living accommodations and career counseling and AA/NA programs for those who are struggling between sobriety or want continued help in maintaining it once they have completed their initial rehabilitation at an addiction facility.

    Aftercare comprises services that help recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day activities while working on specific issues. These problems include psychiatric issues, family problems caused by substance abuse, continuing education pursuits if desired during rehab, etc. These can last up to one year+ depending on what’s needed most urgently upon completion of earlier stages.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Juneau, AK Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Different people react differently to various treatment options. Some drug rehabilitation centers offer individualized treatment that caters to the specific needs of a drug addict. The best treatment option varies on an individual depending on the type of drug abused, life history, medical condition of the person, social circumstances, and the environment they live in now.

    When a person enters drug rehab, they usually have anti-drug associations such as withdrawal symptoms, stress, cravings, etc. The first step of drug rehab is to detoxify the body from any residual substances in it. Drug rehabilitation centers usually employ trained medical professionals to help in this process. Usually, the initial detoxification lasts for five days, where the person is monitored under close supervision.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy is a treatment method used to help couples in which at least one member of the couple has a drug addiction. The treatment is designed to help the couple strengthen their relationship to minimize the effects of drug addiction on their lives and promote healthy communication between them.

    Couples therapy can be used whether the addicted partner is using drugs or in recovery. It helps the couple create healthy communication and coping skills to minimize the problem-solving abilities of one partner, which can then be directed at solving issues related to their addiction. It also helps couples address problems that may be related to drug addiction. Couples therapy can help couples feel like a team and not feel like their partner is the problem.

    Couples therapy is very challenging for both the drug addict and their partner. It requires an intense commitment between the two individuals to participate in the sessions and the homework assigned between sessions.

    An additional benefit of couples therapy is that it can help make other types of treatment, such as 12-step programs, more effective.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy sessions typically involve the addict and their family members. During these sessions, a therapist will work with everyone involved to help them understand addiction and find healthy ways of coping without substance abuse.

    Some addicts might feel embarrassed about their substance abuse problems. By encouraging family members to attend these sessions, therapists can show addicts that they’re not alone in dealing with addiction. Therapists can also work with family members to help them understand addiction and learn how to offer support and encouragement to their loved one as they deal with substance abuse issues.

Group therapy may occur on an outpatient or inpatient basis with groups that have no pre-existing relationships outside the session, unlike support groups where everyone already knows each other beforehand.
