    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    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

    Alcoholism treatment is similar to opioid addiction treatment in some ways, but there are several differences. For example, alcoholics don’t need to attend physically located clinics. Instead, they can meet with doctors and therapists over the phone or online.

    During these appointments , addicts will receive medications that help them stay sober for periods of time without experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms. Some of these medications include Antabuse, Campral and Vivitrol.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Traverse City, MI

    Opioid addiction treatment should be done in a medically supervised drug rehab. While taking opioids, users will typically use other substances to enhance the effects of opioids or to reduce the adverse effects of opioid use. Opioid addiction treatment will include detoxification and drug rehab counseling to help both the user and their loved ones learn how to live a successful sober lifestyle.

    Treatments such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are three medications that can help treat opioid addiction. These drugs work on the brain’s pleasure center and reduce cravings and the effects of illicit opioids such as heroin. These drugs can be either given orally or by injection. Individual drug rehab counseling sessions can be helpful to discuss any questions or concerns with the drug treatment program. This counseling will also help the user set goals for when they finish drug rehab.

    Opioid addiction recovery is a long process. Many of the changes to the brain caused by opioid use cannot be undone, but with time and the proper treatment, a person can return to normal function. After detox, treatment will include drug rehab counseling and entering a halfway house or sober living community. Aftercare is critical to long-term recovery, as it helps the user avoid relapsing and entering back into drug rehab.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    A person who struggles with addiction and a mental health condition suffers from a dual diagnosis. This means that they have two issues that must be treated. Taking care of one or the other is tough, and taking care of both cannot be done alone. A patient who receives dual diagnosis treatment in Michigan will be given the best chance at becoming sober.

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Inpatient treatment for alcoholism or drug addiction is an option that provides the addict with a supportive environment in which they can stop using. This type of treatment is appropriate for addicts that are most in need of intensive care and supervision. This includes those who were unable to quit on their own, those who need more structure than they can get in outpatient treatment.

    Outpatient Program

    “Outpatient treatment is ideal for those who have a lower intensity addiction. It’s also suitable for those with a supportive environment and those on a tight budget.

    Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. It may involve weekly sessions instead of daily. Peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be used and anti-addiction medication.

    Aftercare support is vital to those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. This support comes in individual and family counseling, treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions, and medications to reduce cravings. It helps recovering addicts adjust to normal day-to-day activities and can last for a year or longer.

    The majority of drug and alcohol addicts who receive aftercare treatment do not relapse. It is estimated that without aftercare, the relapse rate will be between 70 to 90 percent for most people. Aftercare is the final stage in addiction recovery, but it will also help maintain sobriety if relapse does occur.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Traverse City, MI Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    No single treatment works for all addicts; therefore, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to find what works best for each individual. Some people requiring addiction treatment may only need a few weeks of inpatient care. Others will require long-term residential care. Tolerance and withdrawal levels vary from person to person and thus affect the intensity of the treatment needed.

    If an individualized approach to treatment and therapy is not offered, addicts may fail to reap benefits from their efforts. Professionals must customize plans according to their patient’s needs, limitations, and strengths. The goal of all forms of addiction treatment should be for addicts to find healthy ways to cope with their addiction and its underlying causes.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy for drug addiction is a unique form of therapy that allows family members to work through the emotional issues of their loved one’s addiction together. Family members can support each other while learning how to cope with the addiction and encourage healthy changes.

    Accordingly, couples therapy for drug addiction is designed for an addict and their significant other or spouse. The two will work with a therapist to learn how the addiction affects themselves and the relationship and how to break the negative patterns of behavior that may have developed.

    Drug addiction can destroy a person’s life, as well as their family and friends. The loss of one’s ability to choose how to live and behave often leads the addict into depression, anger, guilt, and many emotional problems.

    Family Counseling

    The therapies usually include siblings, children, and parents who are involved in their daily lives. These sessions are vital because they address past issues that may have hampered an addict’s or alcoholic’s recovery and provide support at a crucial time!

    One of the most critical aspects of family therapy is helping addicts’ loved ones see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things a family can do when a loved one struggles with addiction or alcoholism.

    Group therapy is held in a safe, controlled setting where patients can feel comfortable sharing their struggles and gaining perspective through shared conversations. It takes place in a group rather than one on one to prevent feelings of isolation or being unique in their situation while creating an environment for addicts at Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center - Grand Traverse VA Clinic to develop fellowship, accountability, and support. Group therapy is an important tool in recovery that prevents cravings that prompt a return to active addiction.

    This type of therapy involves the use of a variety of therapeutic techniques to help addicts recover from past traumas that might have triggered their substance abuse. During these sessions, therapists will work with the addict to address painful memories and learn how to cope effectively with stressors as they arise.

    During these types of sessions, therapists will typically focus on three main goals:

    1. Identifying and expressing painful emotions associated with past traumas.
    2. Reducing the effects of stress on an addict’s life by developing more effective coping mechanisms.
    3. Developing healthy ways of thinking about stressful situations that can help addicts avoid substance abuse issues in the future.

    This type of therapy is typically used in conjunction with other types of addiction treatment services. By identifying and dealing with the root cause of addiction, most addicts can overcome their cravings and prevent relapse once they leave rehab.

    Many different types of addiction treatment services exist to help addicts safely get sober, but it’s important for recovering individuals to find a therapist or support group that will help them address the root cause of their addiction.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a talking-based method that helps people struggling with addiction replace destructive behaviors with healthier ones. CBT also helps them identify the underlying thoughts and beliefs that cause these behaviors in the first place and ways to control those thoughts and feelings. It can be administered as a holistic therapy or as part of combination therapy and—as opposed to turning to drugs and alcohol—helps addicts learn how to respond to negative thoughts instead.

    When you leave a healthy lifestyle behind to live as an addict, your body becomes unbalanced. Nutritional deficiencies gradually creep in, and before you know it, you’re facing severe health problems. For people who are trying to kick their drug addiction, nutrition therapy at Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center - Grand Traverse VA Clinic is a great tool. It helps restore balance to the body, and for many addicts, it represents the first step on the road to recovery.

    Life skills training is beneficial for addicts in recovery because it helps them learn how to take care of themselves and improve their quality of life, which can promote feelings of purpose and motivation.

    This type of treatment works by teaching individuals life-enhancing skills that support positive living, including:

    • Healthy lifestyle habits
    • Skills to effectively manage stress
    • Effective communication skills to help them get their needs met without turning to drugs or alcohol
    • Money management and budgeting skills so they can continue to take care of themselves after treatment ends.

    Nicotine replacement therapy is a way for people to get the nicotine they are addicted to without having to smoke cigarettes. There are several different types of devices that have been approved for NRT. Studies have shown that all NRTs work better than placebo (fake treatment). NRT helps smokers get nicotine into their system without resorting to smoking and experiencing aggressive withdrawal symptoms. Coupling NRT with counseling and other means of support gives long-term smokers a better chance of removing their unhealthy habit.

    Experiential Therapy at Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center - Grand Traverse VA Clinic

    Experiential Therapy is used by drug treatment facilities to treat substance abuse. This treatment is clinically proven to help addicts in detoxification by allowing them to release emotions in a safe environment. The treatment process involves addicts painting their feelings and releasing them on a canvas.

    One of the most popular forms of experiential therapy is known as LPE – Love, Peace, and Equilibrium. Amy Gumowitz developed this treatment in 1992. By implementing her philosophy of “reality therapy” into the treatment, Gumowitz’s results were outstanding. Once her success was validated by those she had been helping, she decided to open her treatment center. Although Gumowitz passed away in 2007, her contribution to the addiction recovery remains effective, and better yet, it is 100% self-sufficient.
