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.

Detox is the stage of recovery where the drugs or alcohol are entirely removed from your body. There are two different ways to detox, with medications and without. For many drugs and alcohol, the acute phase of detox can be completed in a number of days.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
An intensive outpatient treatment program, or IOP, is set up for those struggling with an addiction to begin the recovery process. However, the patient will not live at the facility during treatment.
IOP involves patients coming in and out of a medical office building regularly to receive therapy and other services while continuing their life outside of these visits.
IOP is a step up from drug detoxification or alcohol detox. However, it’s still considered a phase of recovery rather than the ultimate goal. There are many rehabs and treatment facilities available to patients in need of IOP.
Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment in Wilmington, DE. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. Brandywine Counseling and Community Services - Lancaster Avenue peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling are likely to be involved.
Intervention services can be beneficial for people who have not been able to overcome drug and alcohol addiction on their own. It is recommended for individuals whose addiction has led to dangerous or life-threatening circumstances.
Intervention services are beneficial for:
- People who have relapsed after completing other forms of addiction treatment.
- People with drug addictions that have led to dangerous health conditions, such as HIV.
- People who are at risk of losing their family, home, or job due to addiction.
- People who are having difficulty overcoming drug and alcohol addiction on their own.
- An intervention can be conducted by professionals, or by loved ones of an addict. If the person being intervened on agrees to enter addiction treatment after the intervention, the next step would be to choose a treatment program.
If they do not agree to enter addiction treatment after the intervention, loved ones may choose to go back to the drawing board and try another form of treatment. They may also choose to not receive any further treatment, but there are usually other factors in play that may make it difficult for people to stop using drugs or alcohol.
Aftercare support is vital to those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. This support comes in individual and family counseling, treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions, and medications to reduce cravings. It helps recovering addicts adjust to normal day-to-day activities and can last for a year or longer.
The majority of drug and alcohol addicts who receive aftercare treatment do not relapse. It is estimated that without aftercare, the relapse rate will be between 70 to 90 percent for most people. Aftercare is the final stage in addiction recovery, but it will also help maintain sobriety if relapse does occur.

Family therapy can help you and your family deal with old issues that may trigger substance abuse. The idea behind family therapy for drug addiction is that you are never fully healed from substance abuse until you’ve healed your relationship with your family, too. To get sober, you need to find a different way to cope with the pain in your life.
This is when a group of people in various stages of recovery meet up and discuss their experiences, triggers, successes, failures, and even alternative therapies! Unlike support groups where everyone already knows each other, group therapy is conducted along side outpatient or inpatient treatment at Brandywine Counseling and Community Services - Lancaster Avenue.
Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions.
Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them. Some examples include:
- Talking about the traumatic event and how it affected them.
- Helping those who have PTSD to deal with their nightmares and recurring memories.
- Working with individuals to resolve the issues triggering the stress, whether seeing someone who reminds them of what happened or feeling helpless.
The individual is also encouraged to help others that are struggling with similar problems. This often helps them feel empowered and gives them hope.
Trauma therapy is not for everyone; it is usually reserved for people who have recently experienced a traumatic event and struggle to get over it. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans.
