An addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. While detox may be uncomfortable, it is not life-threatening. Detoxification allows the addict to rid the body of all traces of drugs or alcohol and gives the addict a clean slate for their recovery. In an inpatient or outpatient setting, detox can be managed medically.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Outpatient addiction treatment is beneficial for people who are able to function well in their day-to-day lives. It is recommended for people who are not yet ready to end their relationships with friends or family members who might be encouraging drug and alcohol use.
Intensive outpatient treatment is beneficial for:
- People who are able to attend treatment more than 3 times per week.
- People who do not meet the criteria for inpatient treatment.
- People who are able to contribute to their own recovery outside of the treatment center.
- People who are motivated towards recovery.
- People who are able to overcome addiction on their own without the need for higher levels of care.
Tampa, FL Outpatient Program
Outpatient treatment programs provide drug and alcohol addiction treatment through individual sessions with a counselor, group therapy, 12-step meetings, and other activities to help individuals gain sober living skills. Most programs are designed for those individuals who have completed a medically supervised detoxification program and provide opportunities for clients to begin the process of early recovery.
Outpatient programs also offer a level of medical support as needed and psychological backing through therapy. Clients are encouraged to live at home, though there may be some flexibility regarding this requirement based on the circumstances and needs of each patient.
Outpatient treatment is perhaps the most common type of dual diagnosis program available. It does not pose a significant financial burden on patients. However, it is essential to note that outpatient treatment does not provide the support and supervision given in residential programs. Some addicts may need this level of support to maintain their sobriety.
Sober Living Home (SLH) is a term used to describe houses where people recovering from addiction can stay. The goal of these places is to provide immediate support and protection that the addict needs and force them to live a life free from substance abuse.
SLH’s typically allow the addict to live there for 30, 60, or 90 days. This is intended to enable the addict time to develop a foundation of “sobriety,”; allowing them to adjust to living without the substance while building new life skills. During this time, addicts also typically attend regular addiction, education classes.
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.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at Healthcare Connection of Tampa - Women's Center.
Therapy sessions focused on the individual addict can provide much-needed guidance as they work toward overcoming their addiction. These types of sessions typically involve guidance from a therapist, who will help addicts identify and process their feelings and cravings.
During these sessions, addicts may develop plans for coping with the triggers that typically lead to relapse and learn how to avoid those triggers during their recovery process.
Different types of addiction treatment services are available. Within this article, group therapy is of interest due to its high success rate compared to individual therapy. Group therapy settings are beneficial because they allow recovering addicts to build a strong support network.
Benefits of group therapy are:
- Reduces feelings of isolation
- Immediate access to social support in the form of fellow addicts in recovery
- Lowers risk of relapse
- Increases rate of sobriety
- Builds coping skills that can be applied to everyday life
Trauma Therapy is a form of therapy that involves working with a patient to help them process and understand the past trauma(s) in their life. The idea behind it is that while some people can experience traumatic events and not have lasting psychiatric symptoms, many others will. In these cases, memories of the event 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 how they can change how they think and react to things. This therapy is typically done using techniques such as visualization, discussion, and writing down thoughts and feelings.
Trauma therapists will work with clients to help them understand their past and present relationships. Many times, patients may believe that something is inherently wrong with them or that they are unworthy of love. A therapist aims to correct these negative feelings and behaviors by helping the person realize that their actions do not reflect who they truly are.
One of the main goals of trauma therapy is to help clients express their emotions and talk about what they are feeling. This benefits both to increase awareness of how certain events have impacted them in the past and enables patients to realize that they can make changes in their lives.
