    Drug Rehabilitation

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.

    Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment at Aletheia House - Women's and Wellness Services

    Substance abuse creates problems that affect people in Birmingham, AL on many levels. First, substance abuse affects the individual who is abusing drugs or alcohol. This can result in health problems, including heart damage and overdose. Substance abuse also affects the user’s family, friends, co-workers, classmates, or peers. These people feel frustrated because they do not know how to help their loved ones struggling with addiction. At the same time, the addict cannot control his behavior. Lastly, friends and family members of addicts are affected financially by substance abuse.

    The good news is that effective treatments can help prevent substance abuse or treat its effects on the user. These treatments, which include behavioral therapy and counseling sessions, target the underlying causes of substance abuse, helping users achieve sobriety so they can regain control over their lives. They also teach users to cope with stress in ways other than using drugs or alcohol.

Most facilities start by using medical support during the process while providing counseling services; rehabilitation comes later on after treatment has been completed successfully.

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Going to an inpatient rehab facility means living there while all aspects of addiction or co-occurring disorder get addressed. The treatment involves medical supervision, therapy, and future planning.

    This type of rehabilitation provides a drug-free environment for people who struggle with chronic/long-term addiction without having access to drugs outside the center (or their own home). It takes away any distractions because they live there 24 hours per day. If someone is trying to break out old habits, which could lead them back into substance abuse, things like jobs or school can be put on hold until after they complete their stay to focus solely on recovery.

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient programs at Aletheia House - Women's and Wellness Services, the Birmingham resident can live with their family while continuing with their job or studies. Treatment includes educating the patient on drug abuse, medications, and counseling sessions at the individual or group level. Outpatient treatment plans cover diagnosis, detoxification, management, and counseling. They are a popular option for those who have graduated from inpatient facilities.

    Sober living homes (abbreviated SLHs or sometimes sober houses ) are temporary housing for recovering addicts, most often those in early or mid stage recovery, who typically live in the home for 3 to 6 months.

    The typical SLH functions as a halfway house, providing a stable living environment for addicts in recovery.

    While at an SLH, residents typically meet with various therapists on site and attend regular 12-step meetings as well as other recovery group meetings.

    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.

    Without aftercare support, addicts can easily relapse back into addiction. It is crucial to integrate the addict back into society. Aftercare support should take place after outpatient treatment has ended.

    There are a few different types of aftercare support that patients can seek after completing an inpatient treatment program:

    • 12 Step Self-help groups (AA, NA)
    • Therapeutic communities,
    • Long-term, structured sober living arrangements
    • Halfway houses (residential treatment centers)

    Many different support groups exist for addicts to seek help after treatment. Some are more effective than others, depending on the person’s addiction, background, and other factors.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Birmingham, AL Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy is a form of counseling where you meet with a trained professional one-on-one. Meeting with a therapist in this setting allows for a personal and trusting relationship to be built. This allows the patient to open up about sensitive or private issues they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group. Individual therapy helps identify the root causes of your addiction, which can help prevent relapse.

    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. The two will work with a therapist to learn how the addiction affects themselves and the relationship.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy is often done alongside drug treatment to help addicts stay sober. The goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can happen without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist will sit with the family so they can learn how to communicate differently and provide new tools for dealing with emotions so that people don’t want to drink or do drugs. It’s important for families to focus on relapse prevention plans during treatment so that if the addict feels like they want to use again, they’ll know what steps they need to take together to prevent it from happening again in the future.

    Group therapy sessions are another common addiction recovery service. These group sessions typically involve six to 12 addicts who meet regularly with a trained professional for support and guidance.

    During these sessions, the group shares their experiences with one another and provides feedback that can help each member avoid relapse or overcome specific obstacles they are facing in their recovery process. With this type of support and guidance, addicts can feel like they are part of a community that understands their struggles and will help them get through the hard times.

    Many people struggling with drug addiction have experienced some form of trauma in their lives. It is crucial that these individuals seek out professional help; otherwise, their drug abuse and addiction will likely continue.

    Therapists and counselors at drug treatment centers employ several treatment programs to help people struggling with drug addiction, including trauma therapy. 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) focuses on the underlying thoughts and behaviors that caused the problem of addiction in the first place and may cause a relapse. Negative feelings are common in drug abuse disorders, but they can lead to co-occurring disorders if not recognized. CBT involves strategies that help to change the behavior pattern by restructuring negative thoughts into positive ones. It helps to remove these feelings, and it provides long-term benefits. Also, CBT promotes self-awareness and self-control. It can be administered as a monotherapy or as part of combination therapy.

    CBT can improve the patient’s mood, reduce drug cravings and boost success rates on treatment plans. Regular practice can help individuals handle negative attitudes, thoughts, and feelings without turning to drugs or alcohol. The core belief of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is that one’s moods, behaviors, and actions are all connected. Individuals can improve their quality of life using CBT. It helps addicts understand the patterns of thought and feelings that cause them to use drugs or alcohol and develop a healthy response.

    It’s not as simple as quitting drinking or using drugs and expecting the hard part to be over. Many addicts in recovery have discovered that they need to improve skills such as time management, organization, communication, socialization, and self-esteem. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction.
