    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.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Washington, DC

    Opioid addiction is when someone becomes addicted to opioids. This can happen quickly due to any opioid use. Opioid withdrawal can be uncomfortable and lead the user to continue using even if they want to quit. It’s best to receive inpatient treatment for detoxification.

    Even if a person doesn’t need inpatient treatment, it’s recommended to start rehabilitation or at least some kind of outpatient treatment. This is because the withdrawal symptoms from opioids can be uncomfortable and unpleasant, to the point that a person could end up using again or worse.

    Detoxification should be done to break the physical addiction of opioids. This can be done with opioid replacement therapy, medication-assisted therapy, or a more traditional detoxification program. Intensive outpatient treatment is a form of addiction care that allows patients to continue living at home while undergoing treatment. This type of care is appropriate for patients who have been treated in residential treatment programs. Intensive outpatient programs include regular visits to the facility providing therapy, and patients gradually return to their routine life. IOP benefits most when patients have a supportive family member or friend to help them recover.

    The first step to getting into an intensive outpatient program is to attend a detoxification facility. Detoxification facilities are designed to remove substances from the body safely. The patient will attend sessions designed to help them understand their addiction and its impact on their lives. While in an intensive outpatient program, therapy sessions are scheduled three to five times per week, with the patient attending no more than two sessions in one day.

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

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient treatment consists of counseling and therapy sessions. The outpatient treatment process begins with the addict’s initial detox period, lasting about ten days. Outpatient treatment is used for those who are at moderate risk for “slipping back” into the addiction. It is also used for those who are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal, can handle social pressure, have a stable living environment, and have a good support system.

    Aftercare support is often overlooked in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. However, it’s an essential part and should be considered when planning a course of rehab.

    Aftercare is a term that’s used to refer to any sort of continuing care offered for a drug addict who has voluntarily entered a rehabilitation program. This type of care can be provided in several settings, including outpatient therapy sessions after the addict has completed an inpatient program. There are also 12-step support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, which can provide additional help for addicts trying to stay sober.

    Aftercare is vital because addicts often face many challenges as they attempt to recover from drug addiction or alcoholism. Because of the powerful nature of these addictions, those who struggle with a drug or alcohol problem will likely have to face the craving for their substance of choice for the rest of their lives. Recovering can be a lonely and frustrating endeavor, especially without the support of others who are going through similar situations.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Washington, DC Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual Therapy is a crucial 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 one on one sessions 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.

    In this type of therapy, therapists can develop specific solutions for each patient, which helps speed up their recovery process. In addiction recovery, therapy is a crucial part. It allows patients to go deep into their core issues and discover how those problems can be better handled now. Therapy can be performed in individual sessions as well as group settings. In individual therapy for addiction, the patient meets with the therapist one-on-one to focus on the underlying issues of addiction and come up with solutions to prevent future abuse.

    Life Skills Services provide services aimed at helping people enter into and maintain long-term sobriety. The services are offered at varying levels of intensity, specific to the needs and requirements of each patient. Some benefits of these services are restoring hope and empowerment, enhancing family involvement, increasing patient compliance, and reducing relapse rates.

    Training someone on improved life skills allows someone recovering from an addiction to feel more capable of taking care of him or herself. The skills taught in Andromeda Transcultural Health are daily skills that give a better recovery foundation by simply giving the person tools they need to survive.

    Nicotine replacement therapy treats nicotine addiction using external sources of nicotine, such as patches or gum to substitute for nicotine. This allows people trying to quit smoking to get their desired dose of nicotine without actually having to smoke cigarettes. There are several different types of NRT devices on the market now, and it is important to talk to your doctor about the best kind for you.
