    Outpatient Program

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.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy aims to identify the core issues that would have led the patient to substance abuse and address the root cause effectively. Patients find the therapist as a person who they can trust. It helps them to open up and discuss personal and sensitive issues, which they may not be comfortable discussing in a group.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy is an approach wherein the patients and their partners are engaged together as a part of the treatment process. When a person becomes a victim of substance abuse, it affects the patient and the people around him, particularly his partner. Their relationship can become strained due to lack of communication, financial issues, loss of trust, lack of intimacy, and physical abuse in more severe cases.

    Couples therapy addresses these issues and tries to rebuild the trust between the partners. The partner’s involvement in the process will result in greater chances of treatment success and sustained recovery.

    Family Counseling + Therapy

    Family therapy is a set of therapeutic approaches that assumes that the entire family is a system. It utilizes the strengths and resources of the family to help the patient refrain from resorting to substance abuse. It helps to repair relationships and improve communication between family members.

    Group Counseling

    Group therapy happens at Fairfax Falls Church Community Services Board - Gartlan Center in a controlled group environment, as opposed to a one-on-one setting. It supports Alexandria, VA patients’ recovery by offering a sense of comfort and letting them know that they are not alone. Through shared conversations, patients also learn to develop faith and understanding and gain insight on their addictions.

    Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)

    Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is a treatment that helps people to quit smoking. NRT reduces the withdrawal symptoms by giving nicotine in low doses. It is safe for most adults, teens and pregnant women should not undergo NRT. Research shows that the use of NRT doubles the chances of quitting smoking.

    Trauma Therapy

    Unresolved trauma is often a key reason why many patients resorted to substance abuse. Trauma therapy refers to treatment wherein specialist therapists help the patients to resolve the trauma that led the patients to substance abuse. The trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. Thinking of these traumatic events causes emotional disturbances like anxiety, depression and results in addiction. If trauma is the primary cause of substance abuse, then both issues must be addressed. Otherwise, there is a risk of relapse. Trauma therapy also improves the cognitive functions and provides long term benefits.
