    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.

    Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment at Avenues Recovery Center at Townsend

    A combination of treatments is often needed to treat drug abuse. Some addictions can be treated with counseling and support groups. In other cases, drug abuse can lead to a medical problem and require medical treatment. Treatment for drug addiction typically combines counseling and psychotherapy with medication and behavioral therapies.

    A combination of treatments is often needed to treat drug abuse issues effectively. In the case of drug abuse, there is no easy answer or one-size-fits-all cure.

    Alcoholism Treatment

    Treatment options for alcoholism include various support groups, medication-assisted therapy (MAT), and residential treatment centers. Support groups are beneficial because they are often free or low-cost. They also provide people who have gone through the same experience to help others through their recovery.

    Benefits of sobriety include the following:

    • Increased life expectancy due to a healthier lifestyle.
    • Improved relationships with friends and family
    • Increased enjoyment of life
    • Fewer health problems (heart disease, liver cirrhosis, some cancers, etc.)
    • Lower risk of accidents (less likely to drive drunk or be involved in alcohol-related crimes)

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in New Orleans, LA

    Opioid addiction has become a significant health problem in the United States. In 2015, there were 91 opioid overdose-related deaths per day, with a substantial increase in mortality rate in 2014.

    When opioid addiction has reached a point where a person’s life becomes unmanageable, treatment options are available to help them get sober. Treatment that includes medical care with medications and counseling can help a user transition into sobriety.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    When someone in struggles with both addiction and mental or emotional illness, this is considered a dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis treatment can include therapy for these issues to happen simultaneously, which will allow either of them to be treated effectively.

    Sometimes people who have suffered from addiction disorder also suffer from co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc., making them “dual diagnoses.” Dual diagnoses require specialized treatment programs where drug and alcohol addiction are addressed along with psychiatric illnesses. Some rehabilitation facilities provide patients suffering from cooccurrences a program with highly integrated services and a clean environment with few distractions to help them succeed.

    Levels of Care Offered

    offers a variety of treatment.

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Detox, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Intervention, Residential, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Inpatient treatment for alcoholism or drug addiction is an option that provides the addict with a supportive environment in which they can stop using. After detox, an inpatient treatment center provides a structured environment for the addict to recover from their addiction and begin taking steps toward a lifetime of sobriety.

    This type of treatment is appropriate for addicts that are most in need of intensive care and supervision. This includes those who were unable to quit on their own, those who need more structure than they can get in outpatient treatment, and those whose addiction has led them into legal trouble or severe health problems.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    The Intensive Outpatient Program offered by Avenues Recovery Center at Townsend is designed for those who need intensive care but would rather get it in the comfort of their own home. The treatment programs vary in duration and intensity and can be tailored to suit the patient’s needs. The program includes regular visits to the facility, though the overnight stay is not needed. IOP is suitable for patients who have been treated in residential treatment programs and are in the transition phase. It helps the patient live at home and discharge some work or school responsibilities even while undergoing treatment. The patients gradually get back to their routine life with the support of a friend or family member.

    Sober living homes, also known as halfway houses, provide recovering people with a structured drug-free environment to live in that bridges inpatient rehab and the much less structured world of outpatient rehab. Sober living homes offer a person early in recovery the opportunity to practice recovery skills in a safe environment.

    The atmosphere in sober living homes is less restrictive than in an inpatient facility. Members have to follow many rules, including not drinking and using drugs and paying rent and bills. There is no limit to the period of stay. As long as you stay, you should follow the rules because it’s the opportunity for individual and group 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.

    Intervention Programs can be beneficial for those who are not prepared to engage in a recovery program. The individual’s friends and family will call and set up an intervention in or near New Orleans, and at which a specialist will come and lead the discussion. Interventions help family members motivate those affected to seek external support.

    People involved in substance abuse usually deny the harmful effects of their changed behavior. They believe they can overcome addiction alone. This, however, can be difficult without external help. Intervention services deploy professionals to help organize meetings between individuals and family members. Family members converse openly with the affected individual and express concern for them. They explain different treatment options and persuade the individual to act immediately.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this New Orleans, LA Facility.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy is beneficial for people who are in addiction treatment services because it offers addicts the opportunity to work with their family members to better understand what led them to make choices that contributed to their addiction.

    This type of therapy helps family members reach a deeper understanding of how they can best support their loved one during recovery. It also helps the addict better understand their own motivations and triggers that led them to turn to substance abuse.

    Family therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

    • Assists family members in processing difficult feelings so they don’t blame or resent recovering addicts
    • Assists family members in understanding how addiction has impacted the addict and everyone who is involved with them
    • Allows the addict to take responsibility for their actions, while encouraging improved communication skills
    • Helps family members understand how to best support an individual in recovery so addicts don’t relapse again.

    Trauma therapy is beneficial for people who are recovering from drug addiction because it helps them heal from past traumas that may have caused them to turn to harmful substances or led them to experience negative emotions that contributed to their destructive behaviors.

    This type of treatment works by processing difficult experiences so individuals can learn how to process these events without having to turn to substances for coping.

    Trauma therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

    • Helps individuals understand their experiences and emotional responses to difficult events, including why they turned to drugs or alcohol
    • Provides them with comfort and support while working through difficult emotions related to these traumatic experiences
    • Offers an opportunity for addicts to have a voice and be heard, which can improve their self-esteem
    • Can help them develop coping skills so they can better respond to triggers instead of turning to substance abuse.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a technique that is used to help people with addiction. Specifically, it is a way of identifying thoughts and behaviors that cause the addiction. It is typically used in an individual counseling session.

    The content explains cognitive behavioral therapy and how it works to address some behaviors that may be leading to unintended consequences in their life, as well as its benefits for those seeking sobriety.

    It works by helping people to talk through their issues and addressing the thoughts that cause said behaviors. It is an excellent way of learning about oneself and one’s perception of the world.

    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) helps people get sober by changing how they experience emotions. EMDR is a psychotherapy treatment that has been widely studied with people who have addiction problems.

    During the treatment, the patient is asked to recall specific memories that relate to their addictions. At the same time, they follow a moving object with their eyes or tap their hands or feet. This process helps the patient work through their emotions by separating the memory from the distress they feel about it.

    By enhancing the brain’s information processing systems, EMDR enables people to “process” experiences that trigger cravings and painful emotions so that they can move forward in their lives.

    The 12-step program is a common method used to treat addiction. It is successful for many people and includes acknowledging the problem, making changes, and honesty. The program is available in most cities in the United States and helps those addicted to drugs or alcohol achieve sobriety. In this program, peers help each other achieve the goal of abstinence.

    The 12 steps dictate that individuals accept that they are addicts and understand the consequences of their addiction. They then work towards recovery and make amends to others they have hurt. The process of cognitive restructuring helps individuals change their negative thoughts into positive ones. The 12-step program provides the benefit of building a support network, which is essential for recovery.

    Creative Arts

    Creative arts therapy, known as expressive therapy, may be used as a means of treatment. Acting and music are among the various forms used to express oneself where written words would fail through poetry or song. The goal is to find a balance by integrating thoughts and feelings to improve the mental state of patients in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    Equine Therapy in Louisiana

    If you’re suffering from addiction and would like to recover, I recommend that you take part in equine therapy, also known as Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT). This will help you build a relationship with the horse and put them under your care. This equine therapy is excellent for building trust, improving self-confidence, and accepting yourself. By learning to distinguish between right and wrong, you will discard unhealthy thoughts and negative emotions. You’ll also enhance your ability to focus and boost your self-worth. If you’re ready, start this route to recovery today!
