    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    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.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    When someone in struggles with both addiction and mental or emotional illness, this is considered a dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis treatment can include therapy for these issues to happen simultaneously, which will allow either of them to be treated effectively.

    Sometimes people who have suffered from addiction disorder also suffer from co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc., making them “dual diagnoses.” Dual diagnoses require specialized treatment programs where drug and alcohol addiction are addressed along with psychiatric illnesses. Some rehabilitation facilities provide patients suffering from cooccurrences a program with highly integrated services and a clean environment with few distractions to help them succeed.

    offers a variety of treatment.

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

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    The Intensive Outpatient Program offered by Kansas City VAMC - Honor Annex VA Clinic is designed for those who need intensive care but would rather get it in the comfort of their own home. The treatment programs vary in duration and intensity and can be tailored to suit the patient’s needs. The program includes regular visits to the facility, though the overnight stay is not needed. IOP is suitable for patients who have been treated in residential treatment programs and are in the transition phase. It helps the patient live at home and discharge some work or school responsibilities even while undergoing treatment. The patients gradually get back to their routine life with the support of a friend or family member.

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient treatment is often used for drug addicts in drug rehab. Outpatient treatment consists of counseling and therapy sessions. This form of treatment is also called ‘day-treatment’. The outpatient treatment process begins with the addict’s initial detox period, lasting about ten days.

    Outpatient treatment is used for those who are at moderate risk for ‘slipping back’ into the addiction, for those who:

    • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
    • Can handle stressors that might trigger relapse
    • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober
    • Have a support system that allows them to go to a facility a few times a week while still keeping their current responsibilities
    • Have no legal obligations, being either on parole or probation, that require them to seek treatment at a mandatory facility
    • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
    • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober

    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.

    Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program is only the first step. Then comes aftercare support. These services include sober living accommodations, career counseling, and AA/NA programs for those struggling with sobriety or who want help maintaining it after initial rehab at an addiction facility.

    They can last up to a year or more depending on what’s needed most urgently after the earlier stages are completed.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Kansas City, MO Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Because no single treatment is effective for all addicts, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to figure out what works best for each individual. Tolerance and withdrawal levels differ from person to person, affecting the treatment intensity required. Addiction treatment should aim to help addicts develop healthy coping mechanisms for dealing with their addiction and its underlying causes.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy works with clients and significant others in a professional capacity to improve relationship dynamics. This can be helpful for addicts who are trying to marry the idea of recovery into their work, family, social lives – any aspect that has to do with relationships. Through counseling sessions, addicts will have an opportunity to talk about their addiction with professional partners.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy is beneficial for people who are in addiction treatment services because it offers addicts the opportunity to work with their family members to better understand what led them to make choices that contributed to their addiction.

    This type of therapy helps family members reach a deeper understanding of how they can best support their loved one during recovery. It also helps the addict better understand their own motivations and triggers that led them to turn to substance abuse.

    Family therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

    • Assists family members in processing difficult feelings so they don’t blame or resent recovering addicts
    • Assists family members in understanding how addiction has impacted the addict and everyone who is involved with them
    • Allows the addict to take responsibility for their actions, while encouraging improved communication skills
    • Helps family members understand how to best support an individual in recovery so addicts don’t relapse again.

    Group therapy can help build a stronger support system and give addicts in Kansas City, MO insight into their addiction that they gain through shared conversations. Group therapy occurs in a controlled group environment, exclusive of one on one meetings. This makes it safer for patients to feel comfortable sharing the struggles they’re going through and gaining perspective.

    Trauma therapy is beneficial for people who are recovering from drug addiction because it helps them heal from past traumas that may have caused them to turn to harmful substances or led them to experience negative emotions that contributed to their destructive behaviors.

    This type of treatment works by processing difficult experiences so individuals can learn how to process these events without having to turn to substances for coping.

    Trauma therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

    • Helps individuals understand their experiences and emotional responses to difficult events, including why they turned to drugs or alcohol
    • Provides them with comfort and support while working through difficult emotions related to these traumatic experiences
    • Offers an opportunity for addicts to have a voice and be heard, which can improve their self-esteem
    • Can help them develop coping skills so they can better respond to triggers instead of turning to substance abuse.

    It’s important to remember that malnutrition can affect your mood and energy level, which affects your desire to get sober. Good nutrition helps keep your body strong against the familiar ravages of drug use–tuberculosis, hepatitis, abscesses, infections, etc. — as well as the physical symptoms of withdrawal. If you’re eating right, you’ll have more energy for productive activities and will have more strength to fight cravings.

    Life Skills Services assist addicts in their recovery by teaching them healthy coping mechanisms that will aid them in becoming sober, focussing on helping people enter into, and maintaining long-term sobriety.
