    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    Alcoholism, Dual Diagnosis, Opiod Addiction, Opioid Addiction, Substance Abuse

    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.

    Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

    Substance abuse typically leads to addiction, which requires specialized treatment programs at Alpha Home to address. Many people benefit from inpatient drug rehabilitation, which includes inpatient acute care and residential rehabilitation. Other levels of care include intensive outpatient therapy, individual counseling, and support groups. Family therapy is also an essential part of treatment for substance abuse.

    Alcoholism Treatment at Alpha Home

    Alcoholism treatment involves addiction education, individual psychotherapy, group therapy, and family therapy. Treatment for alcoholism often involves medical detoxification, in which a person is hospitalized for observation and medical support due to intense and often dangerous withdrawal symptoms. The goal of alcoholism treatment at Alpha Home is complete abstinence from alcohol.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

    Opioids are a series of medicines that are used for pain relief. Opioid addiction refers to the compulsive pursuit of opioids, even though they are not medically needed.

    Aftercare Support

    Aftercare support involves the support given to a San Antonio, Texas patient after they complete treatment. It helps them adjust to normal life. It may include setting them up in a halfway house and enrolling them in programs like Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Alpha Home‘s patients may also be provided with career training to help them get back into the job force.

    Inpatient Care

    Inpatient treatment for addiction is generally not as scary as it might sound. It is a way to find recovery while being in a supportive and controlled environment. The duration of treatment at Alpha Home in San Antonio can be different based on each individual. Many can leave after 28 days; some may stay a few months, and others may stay six months or longer.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    Substance use disorder falls under two categories: Alcohol or Drug Abuse and Drug Dependence. An individual suffering from a substance use disorder and mental health disorders is said to have a co-occurring disorder or a dual disorder.

    Individuals with substance use disorders and mental health problems are said to suffer from a ‘dual diagnosis’. The most frequently identified mental health issues found in individuals with substance use disorders include anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and schizoaffective disorder.

    Residential

    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.

    12-Step Program Facilitation

    Alcoholics Anonymous is responsible for the development of the popular “12 Step Program”. Most substance treatment centers have their own 12 step program designed to help users achieve sobriety. Because of this, most treatment plans follow a similar pattern when broken down.

    The first three steps depend on the patient, so they are more specific and situational. The succeeding four steps center on practical issues brought on by substance abuse. Steps 8 and 9 deal with the social and emotional repercussions of addiction, encouraging patients to make amends to people they have wronged. These are followed by two steps revolving around the further exploration and reinforcement of Steps 1 to 9.

    The last step requires an individual to extend a helping hand to people who are still in the early stages of their recovery.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

    Negative feelings are common in substance abuse disorders. If not recognized, they can cause co-occurring disorders. CBT involves strategies that help to change the thinking and behavioral pattern. It can be administered as a monotherapy as well as a part of combination therapy.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual professional counseling or individual therapy refers to the one-on-one interaction between a patient and his or her counselor at Alpha Home in San Antonio, TX. Individual therapy allows for more privacy, one that group interactions can’t provide. It makes it easier for the counselor and the patient to deal with the central issues, which are likely the culprits of substance addiction.

    Family Counseling + Therapy

    Family therapy is a set of therapeutic approaches that assumes that the entire family is a system. It utilizes the strengths and resources of the family to help the patient refrain from resorting to substance abuse. The impact of substance abuse is not just on the patient but on the entire family. Family therapy ensures that the patient gets adequate support from the family members after the treatment making the recovery process sustainable

    • Family therapy guides all the members of the family to help the patient.
    • It helps to repair relationships and improve communication between family members.
    • It helps to keep the patient engaged and motivated throughout the treatment.

    Group Counseling

    Group therapy is an important tool in recovery. Finding a peer group in San Antonio, TX and others who relate to your situation is a fundamental tool for recovery at Alpha Home. Addiction tends to lead to isolation and feelings of uniqueness. The accountability and friendship that is found in group therapy can be more effective than any single other treatment approach. This is generally introduced early in recovery and is recommended as a lifetime treatment habit.

    Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (REBT)

    Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) is a variation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that helps people understand how maladaptive, negative, and habitual thoughts and feelings lead to bad life choices. REBT is based on the idea that people operate under many irrational but habitual patterns of thought that fuel harmful practices.

    Trauma Therapy

    Trauma therapy is a way of addressing trauma while in a safe situation in order to heal. This may involve Alpha Home managing individual or group counseling or both. Other forms of therapy have been proven to assist in healing past traumas.

    Contingency Management / Motivational Incentives

    A mechanism that rewards patients for good actions is Contingency Management (CM). For a clean drug test, patients typically get a reward or benefit. On the other hand, for bad conduct, individuals are generally disciplined. The treatment helps patients to participate in healthy habits and reduce unhealthy behavior. In treating addiction and other difficulties, it is an effective method offered by Alpha Home.
