    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Substance abuse is the excessive use of any drug. This includes alcohol, medications, and illegal drugs. Substance abuse is treated with a combination of physical and mental treatments. Patients detox and follow up with therapies that target the underlying cause of the addiction. Substance abuse is a severe problem that can be successfully treated with a variety of therapies. Aquila - Wilmington treatment uses a combination of therapies along with other resources to overcome substance abuse.

    Opioid addiction treatment should be done in a medically supervised drug rehab. While taking opioids, users will typically use other substances to enhance the effects of opioids or to reduce the adverse effects of opioid use. 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.

    Treatments such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are three medications that can help treat opioid addiction. These drugs work on the brain’s pleasure center and reduce cravings and the effects of illicit opioids such as heroin. These drugs can be either given orally or by injection. Individual drug rehab counseling sessions can be helpful to discuss any questions or concerns with the drug treatment program. This counseling will also help the user set goals for when they finish drug rehab.

    Opioid addiction recovery is a long process. Many of the changes to the brain caused by opioid use cannot be undone, but with time and the proper treatment, a person can return to normal function. After detox, treatment will include drug rehab counseling and entering a halfway house or sober living community. Aftercare is critical to long-term recovery, as it helps the user avoid relapsing and entering back into drug rehab.

    A person who struggles with addiction and a mental health condition suffers from a dual diagnosis. This means that they have two issues that must be treated. Taking care of one or the other is tough, and taking care of both cannot be done alone. A patient who receives dual diagnosis treatment in Delaware will be given the best chance at becoming sober.

    Levels of Care Offered

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

    Intensive outpatient treatment is a type of comprehensive addiction care. Unlike conventional residential treatment programs, the patients live at home during the recovery process. This means that one can continue working and caring for their families. These also allow people to keep pursuing their studies while also working on their sobriety.

    Outpatient treatment can help one transition to normal life from the round-the-clock supervision and treatment available during inpatient treatment. It is an excellent tool to ensure long-term recovery. However, it is essential to note that intensive outpatient treatment in itself does not remove patients from the real-world setting. This means there’s always a higher risk of coming across environmental triggers. To further prevent relapse, an outpatient treatment center should be able to provide ongoing support services.

    Once the patient is enrolled in an intensive outpatient treatment program, they will be expected to attend therapy and group meetings daily for a stipulated period. The frequency and duration of each session will depend on the patient’s needs and level of addiction. This can help curb the habit and deal with underlying issues that led to it. Most of these professional treatments are designed to allow patients to structure their daily schedules in a way that is conducive to recovery.

    “Outpatient treatment is ideal for those who have a lower intensity addiction. It’s also suitable for those with a supportive environment and those on a tight budget.

    Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. It may involve weekly sessions instead of daily. Peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be used and anti-addiction medication.

    This type of addiction treatment is available for people who need more time and attention than an outpatient program can provide. This type of program is beneficial for people who have low motivation due to addiction, or have a lack of support at home which prohibits them from being able to attend a traditional addiction recovery program.

    PHP is beneficial to:

    • Individuals who have very low motivation to recover from addiction as a result of the severe consequences they are facing as a result of their drug or alcohol use.
    • People with a mental health diagnosis combined with addiction.
    • People who need to be closely monitored due to the fact that they are not able to function well enough on their own.
    • People who do not have strong social support or other treatment options available to them at home such as family or individual therapy.

    Drug rehab intervention aims to make sure patients understand the risks of their addiction and possible outcomes. They must learn how their addiction affects those around them and allow a therapy session to help move past the physical symptoms. They often include psychotherapy or behavioral therapy, group therapy, family counseling, and peer support.

    Therapies & Programs

    No single treatment works for all addicts; therefore, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to find what works best for each individual. Some people requiring addiction treatment may only need a few weeks of inpatient care. Others will require long-term residential care. Tolerance and withdrawal levels vary from person to person and thus affect the intensity of the treatment needed.

    If an individualized approach to treatment and therapy is not offered, addicts may fail to reap benefits from their efforts. Professionals must customize plans according to their patient’s needs, limitations, and strengths. The goal of all forms of addiction treatment should be for addicts to find healthy ways to cope with their addiction and its underlying causes.

    The therapies usually include siblings, children, and parents who are involved in their daily lives. These sessions are vital because they address past issues that may have hampered an addict’s or alcoholic’s recovery and provide support at a crucial time!

    One of the most critical aspects of family therapy is helping addicts’ loved ones see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things a family can do when a loved one struggles with addiction or alcoholism.

    Group therapy is held in a safe, controlled setting where patients can feel comfortable sharing their struggles and gaining perspective through shared conversations. It takes place in a group rather than one on one to prevent feelings of isolation or being unique in their situation while creating an environment for addicts at Aquila - Wilmington to develop fellowship, accountability, and support. Group therapy is an important tool in recovery that prevents cravings that prompt a return to active addiction.

    This type of therapy involves the use of a variety of therapeutic techniques to help addicts recover from past traumas that might have triggered their substance abuse. During these sessions, therapists will work with the addict to address painful memories and learn how to cope effectively with stressors as they arise.

    During these types of sessions, therapists will typically focus on three main goals:

    1. Identifying and expressing painful emotions associated with past traumas.
    2. Reducing the effects of stress on an addict’s life by developing more effective coping mechanisms.
    3. Developing healthy ways of thinking about stressful situations that can help addicts avoid substance abuse issues in the future.

    This type of therapy is typically used in conjunction with other types of addiction treatment services. By identifying and dealing with the root cause of addiction, most addicts can overcome their cravings and prevent relapse once they leave rehab.

    Many different types of addiction treatment services exist to help addicts safely get sober, but it’s important for recovering individuals to find a therapist or support group that will help them address the root cause of their addiction.

    Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that helps patients understand the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is beneficial for those whose addictions and behaviors stem from severe mental health issues. It aims to help the patient achieve their goals and identify how they can enhance their lives.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a talking-based method that helps people struggling with addiction replace destructive behaviors with healthier ones. CBT also helps them identify the underlying thoughts and beliefs that cause these behaviors in the first place and ways to control those thoughts and feelings. It can be administered as a holistic therapy or as part of combination therapy and—as opposed to turning to drugs and alcohol—helps addicts learn how to respond to negative thoughts instead.

    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a fairly new treatment modality used with patients diagnosed as suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or drug and alcohol cravings.

    EMDR is considered to be a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure therapy. CBT is a technique used to help individuals replace maladaptive, symptomatic behaviors with more appropriate ones utilizing cognitive, emotional, or behavioral interventions. Exposure therapy is a type of CBT used to treat anxiety disorder individuals by gradually introducing the patient to the feared object, activity, or situation in a safe and controlled environment.

    EMDR therapy is a form of exposure therapy that combines CBT with other approaches such as psychodynamic and interpersonal. It is believed to help patients reprocess their memories, thoughts, and emotions to heal from the trauma of their experience. The goal is to help patients lead more normal lives by reducing the distress that has been associated with the memories of an event through the use of CBT techniques.

    Life skills training is beneficial for addicts in recovery because it helps them learn how to take care of themselves and improve their quality of life, which can promote feelings of purpose and motivation.

    This type of treatment works by teaching individuals life-enhancing skills that support positive living, including:

    • Healthy lifestyle habits
    • Skills to effectively manage stress
    • Effective communication skills to help them get their needs met without turning to drugs or alcohol
    • Money management and budgeting skills so they can continue to take care of themselves after treatment ends.

    Patient Experience

    Creative Arts

It is beneficial for patients to release negative feelings and emotions and explore how their thoughts and emotions play out through the creative process. Aquila - Wilmington in Wilmington, DE, offers creative art therapy to help patients cope with addiction and its after-effects.

    Experiential Therapy at Aquila - Wilmington

    Experiential Therapy is used by drug treatment facilities to treat substance abuse. This treatment is clinically proven to help addicts in detoxification by allowing them to release emotions in a safe environment. The treatment process involves addicts painting their feelings and releasing them on a canvas.

    One of the most popular forms of experiential therapy is known as LPE – Love, Peace, and Equilibrium. Amy Gumowitz developed this treatment in 1992. By implementing her philosophy of “reality therapy” into the treatment, Gumowitz’s results were outstanding. Once her success was validated by those she had been helping, she decided to open her treatment center. Although Gumowitz passed away in 2007, her contribution to the addiction recovery remains effective, and better yet, it is 100% self-sufficient.
