    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 is a medical condition in which the body becomes dependent on alcohol. Alcohol acts as a relaxant and affects the central nervous system, which controls all bodily functions. Alcohol abuse is the overuse of alcohol to the detriment of one’s health or social life. Alcoholism can be fatal if left untreated over time. However, many different types of alcoholism treatment can help people recover.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Saginaw, MI

    Opioid addiction treatment should be done in a medically supervised drug rehab. 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. Methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are three medications that can help treat opioid addiction. Individual drug rehab counseling sessions can be helpful to discuss any questions or concerns with the drug treatment program.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    When addiction and psychiatric issues co-occur, the addict’s recovery is more successful when both conditions are treated. A dual diagnosis refers to a condition in which the patient is diagnosed with two health issues: addiction and bipolar disorder.

    Usually, dual diagnosis sufferers are prescribed a combination of treatments for each condition. The most common therapies are psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, spiritual counseling, 12-step programs, and medication management.

    Psychiatric conditions are an obstacle to recovery because they can create roadblocks to a healthy lifestyle. Drugs and alcohol may be used as a means of self-medication, which can have dangerous consequences. Over time, addicts build up a tolerance and suffer withdrawal symptoms when drug use is stopped.

    With the proper treatment, dual diagnosis sufferers can overcome their conditions and achieve lasting sobriety.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center - Saginaw Healthcare Annex.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. It allows the patients to go deep into their core issues and discover how to handle those problems better. Therapy can be conducted in individual sessions as well as group settings. In individual therapy for addiction, the patient meets with their therapist one-on-one to focus on the underlying issues. This allows patients to open up and discuss personal topics they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting. This type of therapy can help develop solutions specific to each patient, which helps speed up the recovery process.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy is beneficial for couples in which at least one partner has a substance use disorder. This type of therapy can help partners improve communication skills, which is an important factor in a healthy relationship. It can also help partners better understand one another so they have a greater understanding of how the other partner may be feeling.

    Benefits of couples therapy include:

    • Improvement in communication skills
    • Increased understanding of the dynamics within a relationship
    • Increased sense of support and trust in the relationship
    • Better teamwork between partners/increased willingness to listen and work together
    • Enhanced tolerance of each other’s shortcomings
    • Improved ability to have open, honest communication with each other

    Family Counseling + Therapy

    Family therapy is a crucial part of drug treatment and getting sober. It is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety. When a drug addict decides that they want to try and get sober, it takes the support of every person they love to succeed. It can be incredibly difficult for loved ones to watch an addict go through the pain and suffering of withdrawal, but by being there with them and supporting them, they can help to make sure that the addiction never returns.

    One of the most important parts of family therapy is the relapse prevention plan. During treatment, therapists and doctors will often sit down with the addict and their family to develop a plan in case the addict ever feels like they want to use again. This plan should involve steps the addict and family can take together to prevent them from relapsing in the future. An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse because they can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track before it becomes too much of a problem.

    Group therapy helps prevent addicts from feeling isolated or unique in their situation by offering a sense of comfort and fellowship. It also creates a forum for addicts to build their support systems and learn from each other. The group therapy sessions at Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center - Saginaw Healthcare Annex occur in a group setting rather than one-on-one to create a safer, controlled environment where addicts feel comfortable.

    Trauma therapy helps people dealing with addiction by allowing them to confront the traumas of their past and move past them. It is important to note that trauma therapy should not be confused with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) Rather, it is used to treat the effects of trauma, which are often at the root of addiction.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a common therapeutic approach to help drug addicts. It teaches addicts new ways of thinking and behaving so that they can avoid relapse. There are several forms of CBT used in drug rehabilitation centers.

    Cognitive Restructuring helps addicts identify faulty, negative thinking so that they can work together with the therapist to find healthier ways of thinking, resulting in better decision-making.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Addiction uses the principles of CBT to help treat addiction. It focuses on specific aspects of each person’s thinking, feeling, physiology, and behavior. It aims to identify specific problems in these areas and create a personalized treatment strategy.

    Drug addiction can be a difficult thing to overcome, but with the help of nutrition therapy, it can become a little bit easier. Nutrition therapy provides addicts with the nutrients they need to recover both physically and mentally. This type of therapy also helps addicts to have more energy and strength to fight cravings. Most importantly, good nutrition helps to keep addicts strong against the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

    The best drug treatment centers offer various services to help addicts learn how to live without drugs. Since addiction is a chronic physical and mental illness, addicts need to learn as many life skills as possible to help them stay clean and sober.

    Many drug treatment centers like Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center - Saginaw Healthcare Annex offer life skills activities as part of their addiction recovery programs.
