    Conditions and Issues Treated

    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 Maine 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 Detox, Dual-Diagnosis, Outpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    An addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. While detox may be uncomfortable, it is not life-threatening. Detoxification allows the addict to rid the body of all traces of drugs or alcohol and gives the addict a clean slate for their recovery. In an inpatient or outpatient setting, detox can be managed medically.

    “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.

    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

    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 Catholic Charities - Support and Recovery to develop fellowship, accountability, and support. Group therapy is an important tool in recovery that prevents cravings that prompt a return to active addiction.
