    Opioid addiction involves addiction to legal or illegal opioids. It may happen very quickly with any opioid use. Sometimes within a matter of days. Opioid addiction is a known as a high-risk factor for future heroin addiction.

    Hogar de Ayuda El Refugio‘s Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual.

    Couples Therapy at Hogar de Ayuda El Refugio

    Couples therapy is an approach wherein the patients and their partners are engaged together as a part of the treatment process. When a person becomes a victim of substance abuse, it affects the patient and the people around him, particularly his partner. Their relationship can become strained due to lack of communication, financial issues, loss of trust, lack of intimacy, and physical abuse in more severe cases.

    Couples therapy addresses these issues and tries to rebuild the trust between the partners. The partner’s involvement in the process will result in greater chances of treatment success and sustained recovery.

    Family Counseling + Treatment

It utilizes the strengths and resources of the family to help the patient refrain from resorting to substance abuse.

    Unresolved trauma is often a key reason why many patients resorted to substance abuse. Trauma therapy refers to treatment wherein specialist therapists help the patients to resolve the trauma that led the patients to substance abuse. The trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. Thinking of these traumatic events causes emotional disturbances like anxiety, depression and results in addiction. If trauma is the primary cause of substance abuse, then both issues must be addressed. Otherwise, there is a risk of relapse. Trauma therapy also improves the cognitive functions and provides long term benefits.

    Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) sees a person suffering from substance addiction to have illogical reasoning, counterproductive actions, and does not see things clearly.

REBT pushes an individual to become more reasonable and choose a life without the repercussions of addictions.
