    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

    Dual diagnosis refers to someone who has both an addiction and a mental or emotional illness. Dual diagnosis treatment includes therapy for both issues simultaneously, allowing for effective treatment of either.

    Sometimes people with addiction disorders also have co-occurring disorders like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. These require specialized treatment programs that address both drug and alcohol addiction as well as psychiatric illnesses. Some rehabilitation facilities provide patients with co-occurring disorders a program with highly integrated services and a clean, distraction-free environment.

    Levels of Care Offered

    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

    Detox is an integral part of recovery and often very hard. Detoxification is the process of letting the body remove the drugs in it. It addresses the physical aspect of addiction. Detox from drugs can be unsafe as the patient undergoes withdrawal symptoms that range from headaches, vomiting, body aches to seizures and cardiac arrests. The main purpose of detox is to keep the drug users comfortable as the drugs leave their system.

    Quitting cold turkey is not recommended and can lead to many issues. Detox is best done under medical supervision so that a team of experts can monitor the side effects and complications. Detox, alone, does not guarantee sobriety as the underlying psychological issues are not addressed.

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Inpatient treatment is a form of recovery used in drug rehab. Inpatient recovery offers individual therapy, groups, and family therapy to ensure that the addict has the best recovery possible. A variety of treatments are provided in this type of recovery, depending on what treatment the addict needs at that particular time.

    The length of inpatient addiction treatment depends on the addict and their addiction. Inpatient rehabilitation can last anywhere from 30 days to 90 days, depending on how severe the drug abuse is. Inpatient rehab is a costly drug treatment, costing anywhere from $30k- to $60k. However, insurance often offers help in covering these costs.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is effective for drug rehab, but it can take six months to several years to complete. It’s the most popular type of drug rehab program in the United States. One example of a successful IOP success story is actor and comedian Chris Rock, sober since 1990.

    An IOP allows participants to spend nights at home while attending meetings throughout the day. It’s a good way for drug addicts to make a recovery plan in an outpatient setting while still supporting their loved ones.

    Outpatient Program

    Alcohol or drug addiction, or co-occurring disorders, are treated in an outpatient program. The patient must attend therapy and other programs at the facility but can return home each night.

    Outpatient treatment allows recovering addicts to live at home while receiving addiction treatment. Outpatients can attend group sessions for a few hours per week. Outpatients may also continue to work full time and study/attend school without interruption if they choose.

    Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

    A popular way of getting drug treatment is through a Partial Hospitalization Program. These programs are short and intensive, allowing for more freedom in family visits. Patients can check in with the program anywhere from 18 to 30 hours per week but only sleep at home at night. The program may last anywhere from one to six months.

    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.

    The accomplishment of completing a drug or alcohol treatment program is just the first step. Once that is complete, aftercare support comes into play. This includes helping people adjust to life without substances outside of guidelines with assistance like getting sober living accommodations and career counseling and AA/NA programs for those who are struggling between sobriety or want continued help in maintaining it once they have completed their initial rehabilitation at an addiction facility.

    Aftercare comprises services that help recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day activities while working on specific issues. These problems include psychiatric issues, family problems caused by substance abuse, continuing education pursuits if desired during rehab, etc. These can last up to one year+ depending on what’s needed most urgently upon completion of earlier stages.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Fergus Falls, MN Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Different people react differently to various treatment options. Some drug rehabilitation centers offer individualized treatment that caters to the specific needs of a drug addict. The best treatment option varies on an individual depending on the type of drug abused, life history, medical condition of the person, social circumstances, and the environment they live in now.

    When a person enters drug rehab, they usually have anti-drug associations such as withdrawal symptoms, stress, cravings, etc. The first step of drug rehab is to detoxify the body from any residual substances in it. Drug rehabilitation centers usually employ trained medical professionals to help in this process. Usually, the initial detoxification lasts for five days, where the person is monitored under close supervision.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy is a treatment method used to help couples in which at least one member of the couple has a drug addiction. The treatment is designed to help the couple strengthen their relationship to minimize the effects of drug addiction on their lives and promote healthy communication between them.

    Couples therapy can be used whether the addicted partner is using drugs or in recovery. It helps the couple create healthy communication and coping skills to minimize the problem-solving abilities of one partner, which can then be directed at solving issues related to their addiction. It also helps couples address problems that may be related to drug addiction. Couples therapy can help couples feel like a team and not feel like their partner is the problem.

    Couples therapy is very challenging for both the drug addict and their partner. It requires an intense commitment between the two individuals to participate in the sessions and the homework assigned between sessions.

    An additional benefit of couples therapy is that it can help make other types of treatment, such as 12-step programs, more effective.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy sessions typically involve the addict and their family members. During these sessions, a therapist will work with everyone involved to help them understand addiction and find healthy ways of coping without substance abuse.

    Some addicts might feel embarrassed about their substance abuse problems. By encouraging family members to attend these sessions, therapists can show addicts that they’re not alone in dealing with addiction. Therapists can also work with family members to help them understand addiction and learn how to offer support and encouragement to their loved one as they deal with substance abuse issues.

    Attending group therapy at Fargo VA Health Care System - Fergus Falls CBOC in , is a useful way for those seeking sobriety to realize they aren’t the only one going through it.

    This is when a group of people on different recovery phases get together and talk about what they’re going through, their triggers, successes, and failures. This can include alternative types of therapies too! Group therapy may occur on an outpatient or inpatient basis with groups that have no pre-existing relationships outside the session, unlike support groups where everyone already knows each other beforehand.

    Trauma therapy is a form of therapy used to help people process and understand past traumas. This can help struggling addicts, as many people turn to drugs or alcohol to mask the pain of their past. Trauma therapy can be done in several ways, such as through visualization, discussion, and writing down thoughts and feelings. The goal is to help the individual understand why they are having problems coping with certain situations and changing how they think and react to things. This is often done in tandem with other therapies to treat the underlying issues associated with addiction.

    The idea behind trauma therapy is that while some people can experience traumatic events and not have lasting psychiatric symptoms, many others will. In these cases, memories get hidden from consciousness but continue to influence how the person processes and copes with things in their life. They may avoid situations that resemble what happened or become suddenly angry or irritated to a situation that reminds them of a past event. With the help of a therapist, people can go back over memories and experiences. This helps them understand why they are having problems coping with certain situations and changing how they think and react to things.

    The use of Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy for addicts has been shown to have positive and desirable outcomes. It is a form of specific counseling that replaces negative and self-limiting thoughts with positive and productive behaviors. Self-defeating thoughts and habits can limit your possible successes. Some examples of this are procrastination, unhealthy eating, and angry outbursts. You may not be aware that some unhealthy behaviors and thoughts are sabotaging your potential accomplishments.

    Good nutrition can be difficult for people recovering from addiction because they may not feel like eating while they are experiencing the physical and emotional side effects of detoxing.

    Nutrition therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

    • Helps individuals to understand which foods promote good health and support recovery that will assist them during detox
    • Provides guidance and education about how to maintain a nutritious diet so they can stay healthy during recovery
    • Improves their overall health and well-being, which can reduce the severity of substance withdrawal symptoms.
