    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Many people need to recover from substance abuse to live a healthy life. In the end, if you can get through all the steps: detoxifying your body, rehabilitation after some time or when needed (depending on the type), and recovery while also receiving therapy support throughout the process, it can be worth it.

    A detoxification center is a common place to start the recovery process from substance abuse. With your body and mind restored, you can continue to heal without the lingering effects of drugs.

    Many people who struggle with opioid addiction need to attend specific programs like methadone , Suboxone or Vivitrol clinics.

    These types of programs will provide the patient with legal, prescription medications that can help them overcome their cravings for illegal opioids like heroin or fentanyl . If the patient has a chronic condition like Hepatitis C, they must undergo treatment before they can begin taking these medications.

    Dual Diagnosis is a specific relationship between two or more disorders that have the same symptoms and can sometimes be treated together. This is used in the treatment planning process when dealing with drug addicts. Dual diagnosis can be viewed as a chronic medical condition that has comorbid psychiatric disorders.

    Although addiction and a mental illness may have separate symptoms that are not easy to detect, they often go hand in hand. Many times, drug abuse is a direct result of the mental illness. In other words, treating the addiction will not resolve all of your issues. Unless you also treat the underlying mental illness, you will not be successful in achieving sobriety.

    Levels of Care Offered

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Intervention, Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Detox refers to the progressive elimination from the body of toxins. The detox period depends on the form of addiction, the length of drug abuse, and the state of health. Under the supervision of medical practitioners, MAT detox based in Augusta, ME requires the use of medications.

    Inpatient treatment is an intensive program that takes place when a patient checks into a rehabilitation facility. The treatment includes detoxification and counseling sessions, which are round the clock. Outpatient treatments are also available, but inpatient care is advised as the first step of rehabilitation.

    Intensive rehab ensures the patient stays in a substance-free atmosphere, improving treatment success rates. The patient participates in group therapy for motivation from other patients who have overcome addiction. Family members are also involved in providing emotional support throughout the program.

    An intensive outpatient program is usually the first phase of addiction treatment. It provides relief for those who are addicted, but are not ready to commit to an inpatient setting. Typically, the patient lives at home and is able to work or go to school. IOPs consist of a daily 3 to 5-hour program, and there is a required number of hours per week. Most patients go to IOP between 20 and 40 hours per week. The patient attends group counseling and individual therapy throughout the duration of treatment. They also meet daily with their therapist to discuss how it’s going and where they are in the recovery process.

    The goal here is to teach patients healthy coping skills, such as stress management and identifying thoughts and behaviors that lead to relapse. The implementation of these skills will be useful as the individual transitions into the next phases of treatment.

    An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction, or a co-occurring disorder. The patient must attend the Maine facility for their therapy and other programs but are able to return home each night. The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of Liberty Bay Recovery Center - Augusta‘s program is complete.

    A PHP is a treatment program in Augusta, Maine where people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction attend therapy during the day at a treatment facility. People may be required to sleep on-site each night, or they may be allowed to return to their home every night, but treatment is generally 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Many treatment programs are limited to treatment during the day or treatment during certain hours of the day.

    Sober Living Homes are an option for those who have completed a treatment program within the past several months. However, it isn’t advisable to use this as a permanent living arrangement because it can lead to a relapse .

    The goal of a sober living home is to provide a supportive environment for recovering addicts so they don’t need to return to their previous lifestyles. The homes will not accept residents who are still using drugs or alcohol, and those living in the house must follow a set of rules dictating how they should behave to avoid relapsing.

    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.

    Intervention services can be beneficial for people who have not been able to overcome drug and alcohol addiction on their own. It is recommended for individuals whose addiction has led to dangerous or life-threatening circumstances.

    Intervention services are beneficial for:

    • People who have relapsed after completing other forms of addiction treatment.
    • People with drug addictions that have led to dangerous health conditions, such as HIV.
    • People who are at risk of losing their family, home, or job due to addiction.
    • People who are having difficulty overcoming drug and alcohol addiction on their own.
    • An intervention can be conducted by professionals, or by loved ones of an addict. If the person being intervened on agrees to enter addiction treatment after the intervention, the next step would be to choose a treatment program.

    If they do not agree to enter addiction treatment after the intervention, loved ones may choose to go back to the drawing board and try another form of treatment. They may also choose to not receive any further treatment, but there are usually other factors in play that may make it difficult for people to stop using drugs or alcohol.

    Aftercare is a term that’s used to refer to any sort of continuing care offered for a drug addict who has voluntarily entered a rehabilitation program. This type of care can be provided in several settings, including outpatient therapy sessions after the addict has completed an inpatient program. There are also 12-step support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, which can provide additional help for addicts trying to stay sober.

    Therapies & Programs

    Individual Therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. Therapists work with patients to identify the root of their addiction and figure out how to better handle the issues that led to them using drugs. Individual Therapy is the one-on-one session where people meet with their therapist. Individual therapy provides a safe space for people to open up and discuss personal and sensitive topics which they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting.

    Couples therapy at Liberty Bay Recovery Center - Augusta focuses on addiction treatment for the addict and their spouse. The addict’s family, not just the addict, can benefit from this form of therapy. Couples therapy addresses communication problems, trust issues, lack of intimacy, and abuse in intimate relationships. Couples therapy can help rebuild trust between partners, which increases the chances for successful treatment and sustained recovery.

    Intimate relationships can be damaged during addiction, and professional help may be necessary to rebuild the often destroyed trust and love. Couples therapy at Liberty Bay Recovery Center - Augusta helps couples improve communication and rebuild trust. Either or both partners will be helped by this treatment administered by professionals. This treatment can also help one or both partners if addiction is the problem.

    Family therapy will also help families realize that the addiction is not their fault. For many years, people blamed themselves for an addict’s behavior and felt that they had done something wrong. This is not the case. Addiction is a disease, and it can strike anyone, even if their life seems fine from the outside. It can bring a lot of shame to a family when they have an addict in their midst, but if everyone is open and honest with each other, then they can help everyone stay in recovery.

    Group Therapy is utilized by drug treatment centers like Liberty Bay Recovery Center - Augusta to provide the recovering drug 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.

    Group Therapy is employed in lectures, seminars, or discussion groups (the latter two are typically conducted as “therapy groups”). It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work (though it does not exclude others with lived experience).

    Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans. 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.

    Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is used by drug treatment centers across the United States to help drug addicts become sober. DBT combines traditional behavioral treatments with elements from DBT, including dialectics, distress tolerance, and interlocking issues. It is commonly used to treat Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) along with substance abuse disorders. The four DBT modules are mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance.

    Training in improved life skills helps those recovering from addiction feel more capable of self-care. Liberty Bay Recovery Center - Augusta are daily skills that give the person the tools they need to survive.

    The therapy covers practical activities like cooking, job hunting, social interaction, and money management, helping to fill in the knowledge gaps caused by addiction.

    These life skills help the person self-manage their recovery and stay on track. It also reduces relapse risk as they gain confidence in their day-to-day abilities.

    Nutrition therapy has been used to help drug addicts for decades. Many early reports on addiction treatment indicate that some patients recovered from the “satisfying power of food”. For years, this phenomenon has been utilized as a treatment modality in eating disorders for adults, adolescents, and children. Specific nutrients have been identified that influence neurotransmitters associated with reward pathways of the brain.

    Studies have shown that carbohydrate loading with complex carbohydrates to elevate serotonin levels was effective in treating bulimia nervosa. This approach prompted researchers to explore the use of this type of nutritional intervention in other disorders.

    Nicotine replacement therapy treats nicotine addiction using external sources of nicotine, such as patches or gum to substitute for nicotine. This allows people trying to quit smoking to get their desired dose of nicotine without actually having to smoke cigarettes. The idea behind NRT is that by providing smokers with nicotine in forms that are not cigarettes, they may be more likely to quit smoking.

    NRT has been available for many years now, and there is a wealth of evidence that shows that it helps people trying to quit smoking. There are several different types of NRT devices on the market now. Patients interested in quitting smoking should talk to their doctors about the best kind of NRT for them.
