Inpatient Treatment Program
Going to an inpatient rehab facility means living there while all aspects of addiction or co-occurring disorder get addressed. The treatment involves medical supervision, therapy, and future planning.
This type of rehabilitation provides a drug-free environment for people who struggle with chronic/long-term addiction without having access to drugs outside the center (or their own home). It takes away any distractions because they live there 24 hours per day. If someone is trying to break out old habits, which could lead them back into substance abuse, things like jobs or school can be put on hold until after they complete their stay to focus solely on recovery.
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.
Without aftercare support, addicts can easily relapse back into addiction. It is crucial to integrate the addict back into society. Aftercare support should take place after outpatient treatment has ended.
There are a few different types of aftercare support that patients can seek after completing an inpatient treatment program:
- 12 Step Self-help groups (AA, NA)
- Therapeutic communities,
- Long-term, structured sober living arrangements
- Halfway houses (residential treatment centers)
Many different support groups exist for addicts to seek help after treatment. Some are more effective than others, depending on the person’s addiction, background, and other factors.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this New Britain, CT Facility.
Individual therapy is a form of counseling where you meet with a trained professional one-on-one. Meeting with a therapist in this setting allows for a personal and trusting relationship to be built. This allows the patient to open up about sensitive or private issues they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group. Individual therapy helps identify the root causes of your addiction, which can help prevent relapse.
Family therapy is often done alongside drug treatment to help addicts stay sober. The goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can happen without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist will sit with the family so they can learn how to communicate differently and provide new tools for dealing with emotions so that people don’t want to drink or do drugs. It’s important for families to focus on relapse prevention plans during treatment so that if the addict feels like they want to use again, they’ll know what steps they need to take together to prevent it from happening again in the future.
Group therapy sessions are another common addiction recovery service. These group sessions typically involve six to 12 addicts who meet regularly with a trained professional for support and guidance.
During these sessions, the group shares their experiences with one another and provides feedback that can help each member avoid relapse or overcome specific obstacles they are facing in their recovery process. With this type of support and guidance, addicts can feel like they are part of a community that understands their struggles and will help them get through the hard times.
Trauma Therapy Treatment at Community Mental Health Affiliates - Intensive Assertive Community Treatment Team -
Many people struggling with drug addiction have experienced some form of trauma in their lives. It is crucial that these individuals seek out professional help; otherwise, their drug abuse and addiction will likely continue.
Therapists and counselors at drug treatment centers employ several treatment programs to help people struggling with drug addiction, including trauma therapy. Trauma therapy helps people dealing with addiction by allowing them to confront the traumas of their past and move past them.
It is important to note that trauma therapy should not be confused with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Rather, it is used to treat the effects of trauma, which are often at the root of addiction.
This type of therapy can help addicts get in touch with their emotions without feeling overwhelmed by them. It also allows the addict to develop strategies for coping with negative feelings that might trigger cravings or lead to relapse.
During these sessions, addicts will learn how to recognize and manage their cravings while developing an action plan for dealing with stress and other triggers. Combining the coping strategies learned in these sessions with ongoing therapy can help addicts lead a stable and healthy lifestyle that is free from addiction.
These types of therapy sessions provide several benefits to people dealing with addiction. By providing a safe environment for addicts to discuss their feelings, therapists can identify the issues that trigger cravings and work with addicts to develop strategies for avoiding relapse.
It’s not as simple as quitting drinking or using drugs and expecting the hard part to be over. Many addicts in recovery have discovered that they need to improve skills such as time management, organization, communication, socialization, and self-esteem. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction.
