Conditions and Issues Treated

Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment at Gaudenzia - Women and Children Program

Rehabilitation, Medication, and Therapy – a combination of all three is most effective.

The most successful treatments for drug dependence or abuse have been those that include education and counseling and medication such as methadone or buprenorphine. The right drug abuse treatments need counseling, psychotherapy, and detoxification or medications to help with withdrawal symptoms.

Substance abuse can take many different forms, including the overuse or misuse of prescription drugs, unprescribed drugs, alcohol addiction, and drug addiction.

A combination of treatments is often needed to treat drug abuse issues effectively. In the case of drug abuse, there is no easy answer or one-size-fits-all cure.

While some drug addictions can be treated with counseling and support groups, many drug abusers also need medication to help them overcome their addiction. In other cases, drug abuse can lead to a medical problem and require medical treatment.

Treatment for drug addiction typically combines counseling and psychotherapy with medication and behavioral therapies. In some rare cases, hospitalization may also be required. All different treatments combined are the best way to help someone addicted to drugs, alcohol, or other substances.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Philadelphia, PA

Treatment for opioid addiction is best made with the help of medical professionals who are experienced in dealing with these types of drugs. This treatment can involve medications, exercise, behavioral therapy, and counseling sessions. It is important to note that the effectiveness of treatments for opioid addiction vary, so it is vital to research which treatment options are suitable for each individual.

Many people who struggle with opioid addiction need to attend specific programs like methadone , Suboxone or Vivitrol clinics.

These types of programs will provide the patient with legal, prescription medications that can help them overcome their cravings for illegal opioids like heroin or fentanyl . If the patient has a chronic condition like Hepatitis C, they must undergo treatment before they can begin taking these medications.

Therapies & Programs

Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions.

Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them. Some examples include:

  • Talking about the traumatic event and how it affected them.
  • Helping those who have PTSD to deal with their nightmares and recurring memories.
  • Working with individuals to resolve the issues triggering the stress, whether seeing someone who reminds them of what happened or feeling helpless.

The individual is also encouraged to help others that are struggling with similar problems. This often helps them feel empowered and gives them hope.

Trauma therapy is not for everyone; it is usually reserved for people who have recently experienced a traumatic event and struggle to get over it. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans.
