Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.
Drug & Alcohol Detoxification
Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Intensive outpatient programs are an integral part of the continuum of care for people addicted to drugs and alcohol. Most intensive outpatient programs in Madison, WI comprise a 3-hour session three times a week. Usually, the intensity of these programs diminishes over time. These programs offer a range of services, including counselling, medical treatment, and monitoring alcohol and drug use. The programs are ideal for people who do not need treatment at an inpatient or residential facility and continue to need extended care and support.
Aftercare support involves the support given to a Madison, Wisconsin patient after they complete treatment. It helps them adjust to normal life. It may include setting them up in a halfway house and enrolling them in programs like Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Connections Counseling‘s patients may also be provided with career training to help them get back into the job force.
Substance use disorder falls under two categories: Alcohol or Drug Abuse and Drug Dependence. An individual suffering from a substance use disorder and mental health disorders is said to have a co-occurring disorder or a dual disorder. Individuals in Madison, WI with substance use disorders and mental health problems are said to suffer from a ‘dual diagnosis’. The most frequently identified mental health issues found in individuals with substance use disorders include anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and schizoaffective disorder.
An intervention is a meeting held by families and friends of the addicted party, managed by Connections Counseling. It lets the person know that their loved ones are concerned about them. It is intended to make the addicted party agree to get help. Interventions are often hosted by a mental health professional in Wisconsin who knows how to communicate with people dealing with addiction. These intervention services can make all the difference when it comes to getting loved ones to agree to treatment.
Outpatient treatment is treatment that occurs when a patient is not checked into a rehab facility. The patient may show up for therapy sessions, go through detox and engage in other therapies to help them recover. However, they will do so while they live at home in Wisconsin. Outpatient therapy provided by Connections Counseling is usually recommended as a follow up to inpatient therapy. It helps patients adapt to their normal lives after treatment. In some cases, it can also be an alternative to inpatient treatment. People may choose this route if they are unable to leave their jobs, children or if they don’t have the money for inpatient treatment. However, inpatient treatment is the best way to recover from addiction.
