    Drug Detox

    Detoxification is a reduction in the effects of drugs and alcohol. It can be beneficial for people who have a history of withdrawal, who are at risk for dangerous health concerns, or who are unable to function well in their day-to-day lives due to addiction.

    Detoxification is beneficial for:
    • People who are unable to overcome addiction without the help of professional care.
    • People who are at risk for dangerous health conditions due to withdrawal.
    • People who are at risk for overdose or serious health concerns after a relapse.

    If you believe that addiction treatment is right for you or a loved one, you can contact your primary care physician, or search for addiction treatment centers in your area. Treatment is beneficial to people who are motivated towards recovery, and who understand the benefits of professional care.

    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.

    Treatment for substance abuse does not cease after an individual successfully completes a detox or rehabilitation program. A vital follow-up treatment service is aftercare support provided to individuals at The Friendship Connection in Mississippi after they attain initial sobriety.

    Aftercare support often takes the following forms: 12-Step Programs, Outpatient Treatment Programs, and Support Groups. The most effective aftercare programs are tailored to meet an individual’s specific needs and circumstances.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at The Friendship Connection.

    Couples Therapy

    Addiction and alcoholism always harm an addict’s relationships with others and none more than relationships with a spouse or partner. Couples therapy is an essential part of restoring trust and good communication to intimate relationships harmed by addiction. Couples therapy by The Friendship Connection helps repair the damage done to these important relationships.

    Family Counseling + Therapy

    Recovery can be more effective if the entire family’s involved. Family therapy hosted by The Friendship Connection brings in the addict’s family to explore genetic factors. It gives loved ones the tools for dealing with addiction and its underlying mental issues. It is a recommended step in helping addicts adapt to sober living.

    Group therapy is an important tool in recovery. Addiction tends to lead to isolation and feelings of uniqueness. Accountability and friendship that is found in group therapy can be more effective than any single other treatment approach. With The Friendship Connection in Jackson, Mississippi, there’s no reason to go through recovery alone.

    Trauma is one of the most common causes of psychological disorders. It’s often found in people with addiction diagnoses. Trauma therapy addresses this by examining the emotions and thoughts people have formed due to past traumas. Traumas are complex but trauma therapy can reduce their ability to contribute to addictive behaviors.

    Self-defeating thoughts and habits can limit your possible successes. Some examples of this are procrastination, unhealthy eating and angry outbursts. REBT is a method of specific counseling offered by The Friendship Connection that replaces negative and self-limiting thoughts.

    A 12-Step Program is a common method that is used to treat addiction. This format is used for both drug and alcohol treatment. It is extremely popular and successful for large numbers of people and the staff at The Friendship Connection are trained to assist in 12-step management.

    Contingency Management (CM), also known as motivational incentives or prize method, is a behavioral therapy type. It is based on the principle that their consequences influence the behaviors of an individual. So, it promotes the desired behavior by giving rewards while discouraging the unwanted behaviors by withholding the rewards or even by giving punishments. One of the expected desired behavior is the absence of drug in a toxicology screen, and the rewards vary from prize or vouchers, to experiences. CM is used for individuals who need therapy for more than 3 months, and it has the advantage of being implemented by family members.
