    The most common co-occurring disorders are schizophrenia, depression, and bipolar disorder. Most rehab facilities in Maine provide patients with a dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis gives rehab the means to treat addiction while restoring mental and emotional health. KidsPeace‘s team of doctors, counselors, nurses, therapists and other medical staff will conduct a comprehensive assessment. They will determine the appropriate treatments for an individual patient to maximize their chances of recovery.

    Recovery is not simply about stopping drug use. Recovery is working with addiction while recovering mental health issues that are fueling the addiction in the first place.

    Levels of Care Offered

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

    Outpatient treatment is considered the lower intensity level of addiction treatment. It’s ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. It may include weekly sessions instead of daily. It may include weekly sessions instead of daily. Peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be involved but at a lesser frequency than an intensive outpatient program. It is a good choice for someone who doesn’t need to go through a medically supervised detox and who has a supportive home environment. It requires motivation and dedication to commit to the program without constant monitoring.

    Therapies & Programs

    Individual therapy involves one-on-one sessions between the patient and therapist. It provides patients with a safe environment to openly discuss personal and sensitive issues with the therapist. They find the therapist as someone they can trust. Individual therapy aims to identify the core issues that would have led the patient to substance abuse and address them effectively. The therapist can develop patient-specific customized solutions through individual therapy, which aids speedier recovery.

    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. These partners can offer feedback and advice on how to get sober while keeping healthy relationships intact. A good couples therapist will help addicts understand their part in an unhealthy relationship dynamic or find ways to deal with anger or resentment from significant others outside of the home.

    Family therapy is a group problem-solving that aims to improve communication and relationships between the addict, their family, and sometimes friends. The main goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can occur without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist is with the family as they learn to communicate differently, especially with the addict when s/he is using. The family can learn to reduce their enabling behavior or rally together and support each other during tough times.

    An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse because they can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track before it becomes too much of a problem. Family therapy is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety. When a drug addict decides that they want to try and get sober, it takes the support of every person they love to succeed. It can be incredibly difficult for loved ones to watch an addict go through the pain and suffering of withdrawal, but by being there with them and supporting them, they can help to make sure that the addiction never returns.

    Groups typically involve meetings with other recovering addicts who can relate to one another’s experiences. They might meet in person or online and typically focus on the process of staying sober rather than overcoming a specific addiction.

    In these groups managed by KidsPeace, addicts can build a sense of community and develop strong emotional connections with others who understand what they are going through. These beneficial relationships can help addicts overcome their cravings and prevent relapse at any point during the recovery process.

    In general, trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. The therapist helps the person identify, understand, and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions. Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them.

    There are many different types of trauma therapists, such as psychiatric nurses and counselors. Not everyone is a good candidate for this type of therapy; it is generally reserved for people who have recently experienced a traumatic event and struggle to get over it. It is often done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans.

    There is hope for people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the solution. CBT focuses on the underlying thoughts and behaviors that caused the addiction problem in the first place and may cause a relapse. This type of psychotherapy addresses negative feelings common in substance abuse disorders. It helps to change them by restructuring thought patterns. It’s about removing negative thoughts and providing long-term benefits while promoting self-awareness, self-control, and healthy ways to respond to negative thoughts. These sessions can be done by themselves or as part of combination therapy.
