    Conditions and Issues Treated

    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.

    Columbia, SC 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 facility for their therapy and other programs but can return home each night.

    The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of Alston Wilkes Society - Rehabilitation Services‘s program is complete.
    Outpatient treatment is a recovery approach that allows recovering addicts to live at home while getting rehab for addiction

    An outpatient can include day treatments which include attending group sessions one hour per week. A person living in an outpatient environment may be allowed the opportunity to work full time if they choose to and continue studies without interruption from drugs/alcohol.

    Outpatient treatment is an option for people who want to maintain their careers and families. Outpatients live at home but attend treatment such as individual counseling, group counseling, or twelve-step meetings during the day.

    Sober Living Homes are used in drug rehab to help former addicts maintain sobriety. The residents are provided with a safe and supportive environment to learn how to live a sober life. They also provide them with opportunities for exercise, many of which encourage learning coping mechanisms that will be helpful later on.

    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.

    Aftercare support is vital to the success of someone in drug or alcohol treatment. It involves assisting with entering a sober living home, getting career counseling or educational assistance and even getting the individual lined up with programs like AA and NA. This support helps recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day activities and maintain sobriety.

    When a person is in drug or alcohol treatment, they have to increase their focus on themselves. They need to learn how to recognize the triggers that cause them to relapse and learn the habits that would benefit them if they were to be sober. This is all part of the growth in recovery, and aftercare is essential to that process.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at Alston Wilkes Society - Rehabilitation Services.

    Individual Therapy

    At Alston Wilkes Society - Rehabilitation Services , to learn from past mistakes and improve one’s situation, the recovering person meets individually with a therapist. The counselor or therapist will address addiction causes, triggers, mental issues, dual diagnosis, and aftercare plans during this time. This is a very intense and challenging process. Some clients find it easier to open up to someone other than family or friends who understand their struggles with addiction.

    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. An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse. They can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track.

    In group therapy, recovering addicts meet with a therapist and other people in recovery. Some groups are closed, meaning only people who share the same addiction or problem can attend. Others are open to anyone who wants to stop using drugs or drinking alcohol. Group therapy sessions typically focus on one topic each week or month so that recovering addicts can discuss issues they face daily.

    Drug and alcohol addiction can lead to a breakdown in life skills. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction. Life skills training at Alston Wilkes Society - Rehabilitation Services in Columbia, SC teaches patients skills such as time management, budgeting, and social abilities to improve their quality of life and prevent relapse.

    An addict’s life skills are maladaptive, meaning they are counterproductive. An addict may have learned poor time management skills growing up, have a hard time budgeting money, or be socially awkward. An addict’s poor life skills can lead to relapse and the inability to achieve long-term sobriety. Life skills training teaches patients effective coping mechanisms, which can help them live a clean and sober life.
