    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Substance Abuse Treatment is important when getting sober, as it helps addicts learn the skills they need to live a clean life. There are many different kinds of recovery treatment, including medication-assisted therapy, behavioral therapeutic approaches and self-help groups, as well as counseling.

    Opioid abuse has become a national epidemic in the last decade. The US has one of the world’s highest rates of opioid use and abuse, as well as opioid-related deaths. Opioids are classified as Schedule II-IV controlled substances in the US due to their high potential for abuse.

    Oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and fentanyl are the most common Opioids and are commonly prescribed to treat pain. Tolerance to opioids develops over time, making life difficult, if not impossible, without them. Opioid users often obtain the drugs illegally. They can be drug dealers, friends, or family members who do not have valid prescriptions.

    The desire for a more intense high than prescription opioids can quickly lead to heroin use. Heroin users are more prone to illness and death due to the high risk of overdose.

    Many opioid addicts who seek treatment believe that the only way to overcome their addiction is through medical detox and long-term drug addiction rehab. To help patients wean off their addiction and reduce the risk of overdose, medication-assisted therapy (MAT) involves prescribing a replacement opioid. Doctors use MAT in conjunction with other anti-craving medications to help patients maintain recovery. Due to the high risk of relapse, MAT is often combined with individual and group counseling and social support programs.

    Levels of Care Offered at Hickey House

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

    Inpatient treatment centers offer a safe, secure, and often medically supervised environment for drug or alcohol-addicted individuals. Many of these facilities are equipped to provide detoxification, treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, and aftercare programs. The patient typically spends 28 to 30 days at the facility and will receive extensive drug counseling.

    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

    At Hickey House , to learn from past mistakes and improve one’s situation, the recovering person meets individually with a therapist. The counselor or therapist will address addiction causes, triggers, mental issues, dual diagnosis, and aftercare plans during this time. This is a very intense and challenging process. Some clients find it easier to open up to someone other than family or friends who understand their struggles with addiction.

    In group therapy, recovering addicts meet with a therapist and other people in recovery. Some groups are closed, meaning only people who share the same addiction or problem can attend. Others are open to anyone who wants to stop using drugs or drinking alcohol. Group therapy sessions typically focus on one topic each week or month so that recovering addicts can discuss issues they face daily.

    Drug and alcohol addiction can lead to a breakdown in life skills. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction. Life skills training at Hickey House in Helen, GA teaches patients skills such as time management, budgeting, and social abilities to improve their quality of life and prevent relapse.

    An addict’s life skills are maladaptive, meaning they are counterproductive. An addict may have learned poor time management skills growing up, have a hard time budgeting money, or be socially awkward. An addict’s poor life skills can lead to relapse and the inability to achieve long-term sobriety. Life skills training teaches patients effective coping mechanisms, which can help them live a clean and sober life.

    The 12-step program is designed for people who suffer from addiction. It helps addicts to recover and live a normal life. This program is used in almost all substance abuse treatments. The 12 steps include:

    • Admitting the problem.
    • Focusing on the recovery process.
    • Making amends with others.
    • Believing in a higher power.

    In this program, peers help each other to achieve the goal of abstinence. The founders of Alcoholics anonymous initially developed the 12-step program. According to its successful results, it is used as a part of other substance abuse treatments. The program provides cognitive restructuring to an individual to change negative thoughts, which leads to long-term benefits.
