    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.

    Alcoholism Treatment in Hartford, CT

    It is important to remember that alcoholism is a disease. This means it’s not a matter of “deciding” to stop drinking any more than you can decide to stop having cancer. Many of the most effective alcohol treatment methods are based on this realization, giving people some control over their drinking.

    Alcohol addiction treatment often uses some combination of individual and group counseling, medication, and support groups. In many cases, people who have been addicted to alcohol for a long time will feel an intense craving for alcohol that can last for months or years. However, with the help of counselors and support groups, many people learn to avoid alcohol and remain sober.

    Most of these methods emphasize the importance of the alcoholic’s willingness to stop drinking and their commitment to remain abstinent.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Hartford, CT

    Opioids are a group of drugs that include substances such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone. These drugs activate opioid receptors in the brain, which produce pleasurable feelings. Opioid addiction occurs when drugs are abused at increasing rates or increasing amounts because the body becomes tolerant of them.

    Opioid addiction is typically diagnosed when drug abuse becomes a typical behavior that interferes with an individual’s ability to function daily. The use of the substance results in consequences like legal problems.

    Treatment for opioid addiction varies depending on each individual’s needs. Some treatments focus on replacing opioids with other drugs that have similar effects of reducing withdrawal symptoms. Other treatments aim to reduce the risk of relapse by providing psychological support or using more natural methods.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    A drug rehab center that uses Dual Diagnosis is more likely to be successful in rehabilitating a person. Dual diagnosis helps to identify and treat any co-occurring disorders. It is essential to screen for both addiction and any untreated mental health issues. A dual diagnosis gives rehab the means to treat addiction while restoring mental and emotional health.

    About 70% of patients with drug addiction have at least one other psychiatric diagnosis. Fortunately, dual diagnosis treatment is a proven model that has been highly effective.

    offers a variety of treatment.

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

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Inpatient rehab means you live there while your addiction or co-occurring disorder is treated. Prescribed medications are used along with counseling.

    This type of rehabilitation provides a drug-free environment for people who struggle with chronic/long-term addiction (or their own home). Jobs or school can be put on hold until after the stay to focus solely on recovery.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    An intensive outpatient program is usually the first phase of addiction treatment. It provides relief for those addicted, but not ready to commit to an inpatient setting. IOPs consist of a daily 3 to 5-hour program, and there is a required number of hours per week. The goal here is to teach patients healthy coping skills, such as stress management.

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient programs offer a lower intensity level of addiction treatment than inpatient facilities. They are ideal for those who have graduated from inpatient facilities, have a supportive home environment, and are motivated to commit to the program. Services offered include medication-assisted treatment, individual and group therapy, and peer group support.

    This treatment is a popular option for those suffering from a lower intensity addiction. It is not advisable for someone who needs to go through a medically supervised detox or does not have a supportive home environment. It requires motivation and dedication to commit to the program without constant monitoring.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Hartford, CT Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    During individual therapy at InterCommunity Health Care in , the person in recovery meets with a therapist one on one to go over their situation and learn from past mistakes.

They will also address aftercare plans, giving them the best chances of long-term sobriety.

    This therapeutic process is very intense and challenging to go through. Some clients may find it easier to open up with someone apart from their family or loved ones who understand their struggles and experience with addiction.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy is designed to help addicts get clean and sober by using what they love the most; their family. Most drug treatment centers make it mandatory that the addict’s family attend therapy sessions, which is great because having everyone there to support them makes it much easier for them to get clean. Not only are they surrounded by people who want them to get better, but everyone is there because they want the best for them, not because they feel like they have to be.

    Drug addicts are often surrounded by resentful or uneducated family members who would, at times, rather see them stay addicted because it makes their own lives easier. Sometimes they don’t understand what the addiction is or how they play a part in it. They know that during and after the addict’s sobriety journey, they will face challenges and changes that they aren’t sure how to handle. This can be very tough for an addict to go through on their own, which is why it’s so important that they have the support of their family. Just because someone is an addict does not mean that they don’t deserve the love and support of those around them.

    Addicts in Hartford, CT can find support in group therapy at InterCommunity Health Care by finding peers who understand their situation and being held accountable. They also learn to develop faith, understanding, and insight into their addiction through shared conversations.

    Group Therapy is employed by drug treatment centers to provide the recovering addict with a platform to talk about their feelings and experiences. It also provides for an opportunity to learn from other addicts who have successfully overcome their addiction. It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work.

    Trauma therapy allows people who struggled with a past trauma to face the situation and learn from it. Many people go through traumatic events at an early age that later leads them into addiction as adults. By addressing this issue during treatment at InterCommunity Health Care in [/type], you can move forward with your recovery process and take back control of your sober future, too!

    Traumas are one of the most common causes of psychological disorders such as Addiction Disorder. It’s often found among those diagnosed with Addictive Disorders because traumatized individuals have strong emotions or thoughts related to their traumas, leading to addictive behaviors.

    Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR, is another therapeutic technique typically used for addiction recovery. This type of therapy works by stimulating brain activity to help the addict process past emotions without relapsing on their drug of choice.

    EMDR can be particularly effective for recovering addicts who have trouble recalling the events that lead up to their addiction. By helping the addict recall these memories under safe conditions, this therapy can help reduce their risk of relapse during difficult moments.

    • Inhalers
    • Gum
    • Patches
