    Using both legal medications and illegal substances in order to maintain an addiction is substance abuse. Illegal substances can become addictive after a single use. If you are obtaining legal medications illegally, you may be suffering from substance abuse.

    Fortunately facilities like Community Healthlink in Worcester, MA are here to help.

    Opioid addiction treatment facilities in Massachusetts, like Community Healthlink cover both illegal and prescription opioids abuse. Most plans include detoxification and subsequent medications to ease the process. Behavioral therapies and counseling are also necessary to resolve the root cause of addiction.

    Levels of Care Offered

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

    Detox is a drug rehab process that is designed to remove the drug addict from the drug safely. The problem with solely using detox as a sobriety tool is that it alone provides no therapy or counseling. If a person goes through detox and returns to their everyday life, they may begin using again once the detox has worn off.

    Detox does not help with cravings, so for some addicts, this can be extremely difficult and should be both done and supervised by medical professionals. Aftercare is crucial, so selecting a facility that offers additional services is important.

    Inpatient treatment takes place when a patient checks into a rehab facility. Patients at Community Healthlink receive round the clock care that includes detoxing and therapy. Although outpatient treatments are available, inpatient care is recommended as the first step in rehabilitation. The intensive and comprehensive treatment sets patients on a path for drug free living.

    An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction, or a co-occurring disorder. The patient must attend the Massachusetts facility for their therapy and other programs but are able to return home each night. The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of Community Healthlink‘s program is complete.

    A sober living home in Massachusetts is really like a halfway house, often referred to as an SLH. It is halfway between a rehab center for drugs or alcohol and living at home. Any specific rules and regulations must be followed by residents, such as attending required meetings and structured daily chores.

    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.

    Community Healthlink‘s Therapies & Programs

    Treatment programs include individual therapy for the greatest chances of success. Customized individual therapy is counseling involving you and your Community Healthlink counselor. Individual therapy leads to greater peace and understanding about your triggers for addiction.

    Spousal relationships bear the brunt of alcohol and drug dependence. It becomes critical to submit the relationship to couples therapy to prevent straining it further. Some facilities like Community Healthlink in Worcester, MA offer couples therapy options to manage intimate partnerships amid the recovery process. Other couples-focused treatment plans can provide the patient and their partner tools to get things back to normal.

    Results have proven the positive impact of family therapy on a recovering patient’s journey to sobriety. Patients at Community Healthlink in Worcester, Massachusetts who receive generous support from their loved ones have better chances of completing their recovery process and maintaining their sobriety.

    When family members are more proactive and involved in the treatment procedure, it encourages the patient to advance his or her progress. Moreover, it shouldn’t be ignored that genetics play a role when it comes to addiction, so it’s better to approach the problem as a unit. Also, with proper education, family members can help an individual avoid addiction triggers and guide him or her in making lifestyle changes necessary for his or her sobriety.

    Group therapy may occur on an inpatient or outpatient basis and involves groups of clients who have no pre-existing relationships outside the group. Group therapy differs from support groups in two primary ways: group therapy is a kind of psychotherapy and is moderated by a professional therapist at Community Healthlink in Massachusetts.

    It has been said that unhealed trauma is the root of most addictions. Trauma therapy is a way of addressing trauma while in a safe situation in order to heal. Healing past traumas and introducing coping strategies are strong foundations for sustained recovery from addiction. This may involve individual or group counseling or both, in a Worcester, MA facility. Other forms of therapy have been proven to assist in healing past traumas.

    Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) helps those who attend Community Healthlink understand how their feelings, beliefs, and thoughts affect their behaviors. DBT is particularly useful for people with self-harming behaviors, as well as those with substance abuse disorders. DBT teaches people how to tolerate distress, regulate their emotions, and how to become mindful.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on the underlying thoughts and behaviors that caused the problem of addiction in the first place and may cause a relapse. Negative feelings are common in substance abuse disorders, and if not recognized, they can cause co-occurring disorders.

    CBT involves strategies that help to change the thinking and behavioral pattern by cognitive restructuring. In simple terms, it helps to remove negative thoughts and provides long-term benefits. Also, CBT promotes self-awareness, self-control, and healthy ways to respond to negative thoughts. It can be administered as a mono-therapy as well as a part of combination therapy.

    Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (REBT) allows the opportunity for quick results for addicts. Community Healthlink provides patients in Worcester, Massachusetts the resources to use a ‘rational self-counseling’ technique to cope with their emotions. It seeks to help them move forward without having to deal with ongoing treatment throughout their lives.

    In the midst of an addiction certain healthy habits and behaviors can be forgotten or discarded altogether. While in treatment you will learn life skills that will help you successfully maintain sobriety and rebuild your life in Worcester, MA. Some examples of this are time management, social skills, nutrition, hygiene, stress management and taking care of yourself.
