Detoxification is the first step in drug addiction treatment. A controlled environment where symptoms can be managed with medication and close observation is provided by drug detoxification. Detoxification is an essential step in the recovery process, but it is also one of the most dangerous.

Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at Meridian - Crisis Stabilization Unit - CSU.
Individual therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. It allows the patients to go deep into their core issues and discover how to handle those problems better. Therapy can be conducted in individual sessions as well as group settings. In individual therapy for addiction, the patient meets with their therapist one-on-one to focus on the underlying issues. This allows patients to open up and discuss personal topics they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting. This type of therapy can help develop solutions specific to each patient, which helps speed up the recovery process.
Family Counseling + Therapy
Family therapy is a crucial part of drug treatment and getting sober. It 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.
One of the most important parts of family therapy is the relapse prevention plan. During treatment, therapists and doctors will often sit down with the addict and their family to develop a plan in case the addict ever feels like they want to use again. This plan should involve steps the addict and family can take together to prevent them from relapsing in the future. 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.
Group therapy helps prevent addicts from feeling isolated or unique in their situation by offering a sense of comfort and fellowship. It also creates a forum for addicts to build their support systems and learn from each other. The group therapy sessions at Meridian - Crisis Stabilization Unit - CSU occur in a group setting rather than one-on-one to create a safer, controlled environment where addicts feel comfortable.
Trauma therapy helps people dealing with addiction by allowing them to confront the traumas of their past and move past them. It is important to note that trauma therapy should not be confused with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) Rather, it is used to treat the effects of trauma, which are often at the root of addiction.
