Conditions and Issues Treated

Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. Psychoactive substances are those that affect brain function. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. The overuse of psychoactive substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence. It also affects the social life and relationships of the affected individual. Substance abuse is treatable.

The duration of treatment at Federal City Recovery Services in Washington can require weeks or even months depending on the severity of the condition as there is a risk of relapse. Treatment options include medications, counseling sessions, various types of behavioral therapy, and group therapy in different combinations.

Levels of Care

This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Drug Rehab, Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

Outpatient programs are the standard for addiction treatment. About 9 in 10 U.S. adolescents entering addiction treatment enroll in these programs, so you’re not alone in Washington, DC. Treatment is delivered in different settings – offices, clinics, and primary care clinics.

Facilities offer a variety of services, such as individual and group counseling and family therapy. During the sessions, you work with a team of experts that include: General physicians, Psychiatrists, Social Workers, and Psychologists. The main goals of outpatient recovery programs are to help addicted individuals reduce drug use and addictive behaviors, eventually becoming entirely sober.

Partial hospitalization (PHP) is a type of outpatient addiction care. Each plan is tailored to meet unique individual needs. Treatment is more intense than that you receive at a therapist’s office. It is less intense than inpatient rehab. The entire treatment takes about ten days to complete. It does not require you to stay at the DC treatment center. Each visit lasts several hours, sometimes, eight hours. It can be the best choice for those who have recently developed an addiction.

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.

Federal City Recovery Services‘s Therapies & Programs

Addiction and alcoholism affect the entire family. For this reason, family therapy is vital to a person’s recovery from addiction. In contrast to couples counseling, family therapy at Federal City Recovery Services may include siblings, children, parents, and other significant people in the recovering person’s life. Family support is one of the most important pillars of recovery.

In group therapy, the patient undergoes sessions with other patients at Federal City Recovery Services who are dealing with similar problems. The members of the group interact with each other and talk freely about their issues at scheduled sessions. Group therapy reduces the feeling of loneliness and improves the coping skills of the patients. You are not alone in Washington, DC.

Many people turn to drugs and alcohol as a way of processing trauma that has affected them in the past. Trauma can include abuse, neglect, the loss of a loved one and other unpleasant incidents. Trauma therapy at Federal City Recovery Services helps patients process trauma. It gives them the tools to deal with it in a healthier manner.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) examines the relationship between a patient’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Federal City Recovery Services aims to establish a healthy response to thoughts and feelings as an alternative to turning to drugs and alcohol. It also promotes healthy communication between addicts and those around them. It is and effective therapy for people suffering with all types of addictions.

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is a type of cognitive therapy. It is based on the principle that irrational thoughts are responsible for the emotional and behavioral changes in addiction. So, the therapy starts with identifying the underlying irrational thoughts. These thoughts are then challenged and opposed logically and then replaced with positive thoughts. It also helps to change unwanted behavior with techniques such as meditation.

By imparting positive thoughts and emotions, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) makes the individual self-reliant with a capacity to handle the emotional and behavioral issues in future by themselves without professional help. This self-dependence benefits the patients and prevent relapses.

The recovery technique used by Alcoholics Anonymous is the 12 step program, but it can relate to any form of addiction. The 12 steps that addicts must take on the road to recovery are explained. Measures include acknowledging that you have a problem and agreeing to turn around your life. The curriculum, instructed by Federal City Recovery Services, also requires a belief in a greater power and making amends to others.
