The outpatient programs in Ellsworth, ME are for those addicted drugs or alcohol. The goal of the outpatient rehabilitation program is to make them stop abusing drugs or alcohol, reduce drug use or addictive behaviors, and become entirely sober. It is generally required to attend the outpatient program for 10-12 hours every week.

Patients can be administered on-the-spot medication to ease withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, increased heart rate, and even depression. Groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can be used as a part of outpatient treatment to help maintain sobriety.

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

People in addiction recovery can benefit from individual therapy. This type of therapy involves meeting with a therapist one-on-one. This allows for a personal and trusting relationship to be built so that the patient can be truly themselves and express any emotions they feel. Individual therapy leads to greater understanding and peace about your triggers for addiction and coping strategies to prevent relapse.

Couples therapy for drug addiction is based on the belief that addiction is a family disease. Everyone involved with an addict, not just the addict themselves, is affected by their behavior and the changes the addict goes through. The relationship also changes the addict’s significant other and has likely picked up some codependent behaviors. Codependency is a term used to describe a person obsessed with another person and their needs and feelings while neglecting their own. Addicts are usually people-pleasers, so it is understandable how one can become codependent in relationships with addicts.

Family therapy is a type of group problem-solving that aims to improve communication and relationships between the patient, their family, and sometimes friends. The main goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can occur without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist is with the family as they learn to communicate with each other differently, especially with the addict when s/he is using.

Group therapy sessions are held in rehab facilities, clinics, churches or community centers that offer drug addiction treatment. People who attend these groups are encouraged to voice their feelings and support other addicts in recovery. This helps group members strengthen their own recovery program while cheering on others who are struggling with sobriety.
