Conditions and Issues Treated

Opioid addiction has become a significant health problem in the United States. In 2015, there were 91 opioid overdose-related deaths per day, with a substantial increase in mortality rate in 2014.

When opioid addiction has reached a point where a person’s life becomes unmanageable, treatment options are available to help them get sober. Treatment that includes medical care with medications and counseling can help a user transition into sobriety.

Levels of Care Offered

This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Inpatient, Outpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

One of the first things an addict should do when entering treatment is to abstain from using illicit drugs completely. Depending on the length of time that the person has been using, the addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. Fortunately, detox doesn’t have to be done alone, and withdrawal symptoms can be managed medically in an inpatient or outpatient setting. 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.

Inpatient treatment for alcoholism or drug addiction is an option that provides the addict with a supportive environment in which they can stop using. After detox, an inpatient treatment center provides a structured environment for the addict to recover from their addiction and begin taking steps toward a lifetime of sobriety.

This type of treatment is appropriate for addicts that are most in need of intensive care and supervision. This includes those who were unable to quit on their own, those who need more structure than they can get in outpatient treatment, and those whose addiction has led them into legal trouble or severe health problems.

Outpatient treatment is often used for drug addicts in drug rehab. Outpatient treatment consists of counseling and therapy sessions. This form of treatment is also called ‘day-treatment’. The outpatient treatment process begins with the addict’s initial detox period, lasting about ten days.

Outpatient treatment is used for those who are at moderate risk for ‘slipping back’ into the addiction, for those who:

  • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
  • Can handle stressors that might trigger relapse
  • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober
  • Have a support system that allows them to go to a facility a few times a week while still keeping their current responsibilities
  • Have no legal obligations, being either on parole or probation, that require them to seek treatment at a mandatory facility
  • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
  • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober

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.

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program is only the first step. Then comes aftercare support. These services include sober living accommodations, career counseling, and AA/NA programs for those struggling with sobriety or who want help maintaining it after initial rehab at an addiction facility.

They can last up to a year or more depending on what’s needed most urgently after the earlier stages are completed.

Therapies & Programs

Because no single treatment is effective for all addicts, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to figure out what works best for each individual. Tolerance and withdrawal levels differ from person to person, affecting the treatment intensity required. Addiction treatment should aim to help addicts develop healthy coping mechanisms for dealing with their addiction and its underlying causes.

Family therapy is beneficial for people who are in addiction treatment services because it offers addicts the opportunity to work with their family members to better understand what led them to make choices that contributed to their addiction.

This type of therapy helps family members reach a deeper understanding of how they can best support their loved one during recovery. It also helps the addict better understand their own motivations and triggers that led them to turn to substance abuse.

Family therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

  • Assists family members in processing difficult feelings so they don’t blame or resent recovering addicts
  • Assists family members in understanding how addiction has impacted the addict and everyone who is involved with them
  • Allows the addict to take responsibility for their actions, while encouraging improved communication skills
  • Helps family members understand how to best support an individual in recovery so addicts don’t relapse again.

Group therapy can help build a stronger support system and give addicts in Meriden, CT insight into their addiction that they gain through shared conversations. Group therapy occurs in a controlled group environment, exclusive of one on one meetings. This makes it safer for patients to feel comfortable sharing the struggles they’re going through and gaining perspective.

Trauma therapy is beneficial for people who are recovering from drug addiction because it helps them heal from past traumas that may have caused them to turn to harmful substances or led them to experience negative emotions that contributed to their destructive behaviors.

This type of treatment works by processing difficult experiences so individuals can learn how to process these events without having to turn to substances for coping.

Trauma therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

  • Helps individuals understand their experiences and emotional responses to difficult events, including why they turned to drugs or alcohol
  • Provides them with comfort and support while working through difficult emotions related to these traumatic experiences
  • Offers an opportunity for addicts to have a voice and be heard, which can improve their self-esteem
  • Can help them develop coping skills so they can better respond to triggers instead of turning to substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that helps patients understand the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is beneficial for those whose addictions and behaviors stem from severe mental health issues. The term “Dialectic” means the integration of opposites. In substance abuse, DBT refers to accepting the patient’s addiction and working to change their thoughts and behavior. It improves life skills such as controlling intense emotions without reacting impulsively, resolving interpersonal conflicts effectively, and promoting awareness about self and others.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a technique that is used to help people with addiction. Specifically, it is a way of identifying thoughts and behaviors that cause the addiction. It is typically used in an individual counseling session.

The content explains cognitive behavioral therapy and how it works to address some behaviors that may be leading to unintended consequences in their life, as well as its benefits for those seeking sobriety.

It works by helping people to talk through their issues and addressing the thoughts that cause said behaviors. It is an excellent way of learning about oneself and one’s perception of the world.

Life Skills Services assist addicts in their recovery by teaching them healthy coping mechanisms that will aid them in becoming sober, focussing on helping people enter into, and maintaining long-term sobriety.
