    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    Drug Rehabilitation

    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.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    When addiction and psychiatric issues co-occur, the addict’s recovery is more successful when both conditions are treated. A dual diagnosis refers to a condition in which the patient is diagnosed with two health issues: addiction and bipolar disorder. The most common therapies are psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, spiritual counseling, 12-step programs, and medication management.

    Dual Diagnosis (Co-Occuring Disorders), Mental Health 

    Levels of Care Offered at Fargo VA Health Care System - Dickinson CBOC

    This Facility offers a variety of treatment.

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Drug Detox

    The detoxification process typically includes some combination of the following: medical supervision, medication to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms, drug testing to monitor progress, and counseling.

    Tackling the physical symptoms of withdrawal is essential to ensure that an individual can focus on the psychological aspects of the addiction without focusing on the physical pain that comes with withdrawal.

    Withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, even life-threatening, so carefully managing the detox process is extremely important. In many cases, more advanced pharmaceutical interventions are used to treat more severe withdrawal symptoms. Medication might help alleviate discomfort associated with detox, including nausea and headaches.

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Inpatient treatment centers offer a safe, secure, and often medically supervised environment for drug or alcohol-addicted individuals. Many of these facilities are equipped to provide detoxification, treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, and aftercare programs. The patient typically spends 28 to 30 days at the facility and will receive extensive drug counseling.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Intensive outpatient treatment is a form of addiction care that allows patients to continue living at home while undergoing treatment. This type of care is appropriate for patients who have been treated in residential treatment programs. Intensive outpatient programs include regular visits to the facility providing therapy, and patients gradually return to their routine life. IOP benefits most when patients have a supportive family member or friend to help them recover.

    The first step to getting into an intensive outpatient program is to attend a detoxification facility. Detoxification facilities are designed to remove substances from the body safely. The patient will attend sessions designed to help them understand their addiction and its impact on their lives. While in an intensive outpatient program, therapy sessions are scheduled three to five times per week, with the patient attending no more than two sessions in one day.

    Dickinson, ND Outpatient Program

    An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction or a co-occurring disorder. The patient must attend the facility for their therapy and other programs but can return home each night.

    The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of Fargo VA Health Care System - Dickinson CBOC‘s program is complete.
    Outpatient treatment is a recovery approach that allows recovering addicts to live at home while getting rehab for addiction

    An outpatient can include day treatments which include attending group sessions one hour per week. A person living in an outpatient environment may be allowed the opportunity to work full time if they choose to and continue studies without interruption from drugs/alcohol.

    Outpatient treatment is an option for people who want to maintain their careers and families. Outpatients live at home but attend treatment such as individual counseling, group counseling, or twelve-step meetings during the day.

    Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

    Partial hospitalization programs offer another level of addiction treatment in Dickinson, ND. This is a type of addiction treatment where you will spend a great deal of time at the treatment facility but do not spend the night. It may involve as much as 10-12 hours a day at the treatment center, before going home to spend the night. Family or work commitments may make attending inpatient treatment impossible but may allow for PHP.

    PHP is another way to receive a significant amount of treatment while decreasing the time commitment and cost. It involves counseling, group meetings, peer interaction, and many of the same benefits of inpatient treatment. This can be a good option for stepping down from inpatient treatment in anticipation of a fully independent life.

    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.

    Aftercare support is vital to the success of someone in drug or alcohol treatment. It involves assisting with entering a sober living home, getting career counseling or educational assistance and even getting the individual lined up with programs like AA and NA. This support helps recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day activities and maintain sobriety.

    When a person is in drug or alcohol treatment, they have to increase their focus on themselves. They need to learn how to recognize the triggers that cause them to relapse and learn the habits that would benefit them if they were to be sober. This is all part of the growth in recovery, and aftercare is essential to that process.

    The methods used to care for each individual at Fargo VA Health Care System - Dickinson CBOC.

    Individual Therapy

The counselor or therapist will address addiction causes, triggers, mental issues, dual diagnosis, and aftercare plans during this time. This is a very intense and challenging process. Some clients find it easier to open up to someone other than family or friends who understand their struggles with addiction.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy sessions are typically used to help couples in recovery from drug addiction work through their issues. These types of sessions can be beneficial for many reasons, including the fact that they add a layer of accountability when both partners in a couple are recovering from addiction.

    Therapy can also provide addicts with another effective way to cope with stress and avoid relapse during difficult situations. This type of therapy can help improve communication with their partners, which can strengthen the relationship and prevent future problems that might lead to relapse.

    Family Counseling + Therapy

    Family therapy is a crucial part of drug treatment and getting sober. It is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety. An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse. They can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track.

    In group therapy, recovering addicts meet with a therapist and other people in recovery. Some groups are closed, meaning only people who share the same addiction or problem can attend. Others are open to anyone who wants to stop using drugs or drinking alcohol. Group therapy sessions typically focus on one topic each week or month so that recovering addicts can discuss issues they face daily.

    Trauma therapy allows people to face and learn from past traumas.

During treatment at Fargo VA Health Care System - Dickinson CBOC [/type], you can move forward in your recovery and reclaim your sober future! Trauma is a common cause of psychological disorders like Addiction Disorder. It’s common in Addictive Disorders patients because traumatized people have strong emotions or thoughts that lead to addictive behaviors.

    Nutrition therapy has been used to help drug addicts for decades. Many early reports on addiction treatment indicate that some patients recovered from the “satisfying power of food”. For years, this phenomenon has been utilized as a treatment modality in eating disorders for adults, adolescents, and children.

    Specific nutrients have been identified that influence neurotransmitters associated with reward pathways of the brain. Studies have shown that carbohydrate loading with complex carbohydrates to elevate serotonin levels was effective in treating bulimia nervosa. This approach prompted researchers to explore the use of this type of nutritional intervention in other disorders.

    Drug and alcohol addiction can lead to a breakdown in life skills. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction. Life skills training at Fargo VA Health Care System - Dickinson CBOC in Dickinson, ND teaches patients skills such as time management, budgeting, and social abilities to improve their quality of life and prevent relapse.

    An addict’s life skills are maladaptive, meaning they are counterproductive. An addict may have learned poor time management skills growing up, have a hard time budgeting money, or be socially awkward. An addict’s poor life skills can lead to relapse and the inability to achieve long-term sobriety. Life skills training teaches patients effective coping mechanisms, which can help them live a clean and sober life.

The non-traditional approach helps people deal more effectively with these struggles. It also allows them to gain new perspectives on their behavior patterns by recreating experiences in healthy ways rather than continuing old habits that may no longer serve them.
