    Conditions and Issues Treated

    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.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Dorchester, MA

    Opioid addiction treatment should be done in a medically supervised drug rehab. While taking opioids, users will typically use other substances to enhance the effects of opioids or to reduce the adverse effects of opioid use. Opioid addiction treatment will include detoxification and drug rehab counseling to help both the user and their loved ones learn how to live a successful sober lifestyle.

    Treatments such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are three medications that can help treat opioid addiction. These drugs work on the brain’s pleasure center and reduce cravings and the effects of illicit opioids such as heroin. These drugs can be either given orally or by injection. Individual drug rehab counseling sessions can be helpful to discuss any questions or concerns with the drug treatment program. This counseling will also help the user set goals for when they finish drug rehab.

    Opioid addiction recovery is a long process. Many of the changes to the brain caused by opioid use cannot be undone, but with time and the proper treatment, a person can return to normal function. After detox, treatment will include drug rehab counseling and entering a halfway house or sober living community. Aftercare is critical to long-term recovery, as it helps the user avoid relapsing and entering back into drug rehab.

    Outpatient Program

    “Outpatient treatment is ideal for those who have a lower intensity addiction. It’s also suitable for those with a supportive environment and those on a tight budget.

    Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. It may involve weekly sessions instead of daily. Peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be used and anti-addiction medication.

    Aftercare support is vital to those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. This support comes in individual and family counseling, treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions, and medications to reduce cravings. It helps recovering addicts adjust to normal day-to-day activities and can last for a year or longer.

    The majority of drug and alcohol addicts who receive aftercare treatment do not relapse. It is estimated that without aftercare, the relapse rate will be between 70 to 90 percent for most people. Aftercare is the final stage in addiction recovery, but it will also help maintain sobriety if relapse does occur.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Dorchester, MA Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    No single treatment works for all addicts; therefore, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to find what works best for each individual. Some people requiring addiction treatment may only need a few weeks of inpatient care. Others will require long-term residential care. Tolerance and withdrawal levels vary from person to person and thus affect the intensity of the treatment needed.

    If an individualized approach to treatment and therapy is not offered, addicts may fail to reap benefits from their efforts. Professionals must customize plans according to their patient’s needs, limitations, and strengths. The goal of all forms of addiction treatment should be for addicts to find healthy ways to cope with their addiction and its underlying causes.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy for drug addiction is a unique form of therapy that allows family members to work through the emotional issues of their loved one’s addiction together. Family members can support each other while learning how to cope with the addiction and encourage healthy changes.

    Accordingly, couples therapy for drug addiction is designed for an addict and their significant other or spouse. The two will work with a therapist to learn how the addiction affects themselves and the relationship and how to break the negative patterns of behavior that may have developed.

    Drug addiction can destroy a person’s life, as well as their family and friends. The loss of one’s ability to choose how to live and behave often leads the addict into depression, anger, guilt, and many emotional problems.

    Family Counseling

    The therapies usually include siblings, children, and parents who are involved in their daily lives. These sessions are vital because they address past issues that may have hampered an addict’s or alcoholic’s recovery and provide support at a crucial time!

    One of the most critical aspects of family therapy is helping addicts’ loved ones see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things a family can do when a loved one struggles with addiction or alcoholism.

    Group therapy is held in a safe, controlled setting where patients can feel comfortable sharing their struggles and gaining perspective through shared conversations. It takes place in a group rather than one on one to prevent feelings of isolation or being unique in their situation while creating an environment for addicts at First Algonquin Academy to develop fellowship, accountability, and support. Group therapy is an important tool in recovery that prevents cravings that prompt a return to active addiction.
