    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A drug abuser needs help because if no one helps them, they will not leave their vicious circle.

    People who abuse drugs are likely to suffer from an addiction, which can cause serious health problems. It can also cause quarrels with people around them. It is common for drug abusers to have difficulty holding down jobs or relationships, but sometimes people around them can be quite tolerant. There are cases where the families of the drug abusers do not want to see them get any help, and the subject becomes controversial.

    When it comes to helping drug abusers get sober, there are many options to choose from. It is essential to state that there is no “correct” way of doing things. People are different, and they need different types of help to get over their addiction.

    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.

    Levels of Care Offered at Alternative Options Counseling Center

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Outpatient, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Individuals struggling with drug addictions can get help from several treatment options, including inpatient and outpatient programs. Outpatient drug treatment programs can also provide patients with different levels of care, usually depending on the patient’s degree of addiction.

    At an outpatient program in Artesia, a patient will attend a recovery program during the day and return home in the evening. Suppose a patient is struggling with drug addiction. In that case, an outpatient program can serve as an effective transition point during the recovery process.

    Aftercare is a part of drug rehabilitation. It is also known as “post-treatment support.” Aftercare programs are available for addicts after they complete drug rehab. It is often the final step in the recovery process. The goal of aftercare is to ensure that addicts maintain their achievements in rehab and do not relapse. Professionals generally provide aftercare (including addiction therapists, physicians, social workers, psychologists) and involve individual and group therapy sessions.

    Therapies & Programs

    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.

    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 Alternative Options Counseling Center 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.

    Dialectical Behavior Therapy was developed in the 1980s to treat chronically suicidal individuals. It is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that combines strategies derived from Zen Buddhism, such as mindfulness training. DBT has been adapted for use with other types of psychiatric problems, including substance abuse and personality disorders. DBT aims to help patients change their thinking and behavior, instead of relying on medication.

    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.

    Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is a form of psychotherapy that allows individuals to heal from the emotional distress that is the result of disturbing life experiences. It uses alternating bilateral stimulation the therapeutic process where the patient moves his/her eyes back and forth while recalling distressing thoughts or feelings can be facilitated by this eye-movement technique.

    • It is effective to treat a range of different problems such as: anxiety, depression and grief.
    • short term therapy (8-16 sessions) and normally 10 sessions is maximum treatment time required for treating emotional problems.
    • has been found to be as helpful as cognitive behavioural therapy or exposure therapy.

    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.

    Nicotine replacement therapies are effective because they provide you with the nicotine you are addicted to without inhaling carcinogens from cigarettes. Some types of NRT include nicotine gum, nicotine patches (transdermal systems), nasal spray, and lozenges. The benefits of using NRT can include reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer.

    Patient Experience

    Creative Arts

    Creative arts therapy is an expressive process that helps people heal. Even if the goal isn’t always to create a finished product, it’s therapeutic for many. They can express themselves through journaling or other creative outlets like sketching, painting, sculpting, etc. This helps them cope with stress and anxiety better than before (and even when they were). The activity improves communication skills and the ability to process traumatic events from one’s past, often triggered during periods of withdrawal/relapse.

    Experiential Therapy at Alternative Options Counseling Center

    Experiential Therapy is a new approach to addiction treatment. Addiction-related psychological issues like depression and anxiety are addressed through physical activities.

    Experiential Therapy can help those who have struggled with past traumas or life decisions like drug use. It allows people to gain new perspectives on their behavior patterns by recreating experiences in healthy ways rather than continuing old habits that may no longer serve them well.
