    Levels of Care Offered

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Inpatient treatment is an intensive program that takes place when a patient checks into a rehabilitation facility. The treatment includes detoxification and counseling sessions, which are round the clock. Outpatient treatments are also available, but inpatient care is advised as the first step of rehabilitation.

    Intensive rehab ensures the patient stays in a substance-free atmosphere, improving treatment success rates. The patient participates in group therapy for motivation from other patients who have overcome addiction. Family members are also involved in providing emotional support throughout the program.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    An intensive outpatient program is usually the first phase of addiction treatment. It provides relief for those who are addicted, but are not ready to commit to an inpatient setting. Typically, the patient lives at home and is able to work or go to school. IOPs consist of a daily 3 to 5-hour program, and there is a required number of hours per week. Most patients go to IOP between 20 and 40 hours per week. The patient attends group counseling and individual therapy throughout the duration of treatment. They also meet daily with their therapist to discuss how it’s going and where they are in the recovery process.

    The goal here is to teach patients healthy coping skills, such as stress management and identifying thoughts and behaviors that lead to relapse. The implementation of these skills will be useful as the individual transitions into the next phases of treatment.

    Outpatient Program

    An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction, or a co-occurring disorder. The patient must attend the Alabama facility for their therapy and other programs but are able to return home each night. The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of Alsana‘s program is complete.

    Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) in Birmingham, AL

    A PHP is a treatment program in Birmingham, Alabama where people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction attend therapy during the day at a treatment facility. People may be required to sleep on-site each night, or they may be allowed to return to their home every night, but treatment is generally 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Many treatment programs are limited to treatment during the day or treatment during certain hours of the day.

    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.

    Therapies & Programs

    Individual Therapy

    Individual Therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. Therapists work with patients to identify the root of their addiction and figure out how to better handle the issues that led to them using drugs. Individual Therapy is the one-on-one session where people meet with their therapist. Individual therapy provides a safe space for people to open up and discuss personal and sensitive topics which they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy will also help families realize that the addiction is not their fault. For many years, people blamed themselves for an addict’s behavior and felt that they had done something wrong. This is not the case. Addiction is a disease, and it can strike anyone, even if their life seems fine from the outside. It can bring a lot of shame to a family when they have an addict in their midst, but if everyone is open and honest with each other, then they can help everyone stay in recovery.

    Group Therapy is utilized by drug treatment centers like Alsana to provide the recovering drug addict with a platform to talk about their feelings and experiences. It also provides for an opportunity to learn from other addicts who have successfully overcome their addiction.

    Group Therapy is employed in lectures, seminars, or discussion groups (the latter two are typically conducted as “therapy groups”). It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work (though it does not exclude others with lived experience).

    Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions. Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them.

    Nutrition therapy has been used to help drug addicts for decades. Many early reports on addiction treatment indicate that some patients recovered from the “satisfying power of food”. For years, this phenomenon has been utilized as a treatment modality in eating disorders for adults, adolescents, and children. Specific nutrients have been identified that influence neurotransmitters associated with reward pathways of the brain.

    Studies have shown that carbohydrate loading with complex carbohydrates to elevate serotonin levels was effective in treating bulimia nervosa. This approach prompted researchers to explore the use of this type of nutritional intervention in other disorders.

    Patient Experience

    Creative Arts

    This type of therapy can help addicts manage anxiety, stress, and other negative feelings. It typically involves the use of art materials to express thoughts and emotions that might otherwise be difficult for an addict to discuss with another person.

    During these types of sessions at Alsana, addicts will typically work with a therapist or support group leader to create pieces of art. For instance, they might draw pictures, paint, sculpt, and so on. During the process, addicts are encouraged to talk about what led them to substance abuse in the first place.

    Experiential Therapy at Alsana

    Experiential therapy is another form of treatment that helps addicts overcome their addiction. This type of service typically involves hands-on activities with the focus on physical experiences instead of emotions or beliefs.

    Some examples include art therapy, equine therapy and music therapy. Each of these forms of experiential therapy can provide unique ways for addicts to channel their feelings and work through their demons. This type of therapy also allows addicts to develop meaningful emotional connections with others, which can prevent them from resorting to relapse as a coping mechanism.
