Conditions and Issues Treated

Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

Rehab centers exist in Milwaukee, WI to help individuals bounce back from substance abuse, which is an umbrella term for drug and alcohol addiction. Drug addiction refers to the use of illegal drugs and improper use of prescription drugs. Centers like Meta House - Outpatient provide individuals a chance to access individual and group therapy that can be monumental for recovery.

Substance abuse includes all problems that stem out from using various psychoactive substances. It is also a diagnostic term used by Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) to define the mental and physical impairment or distress caused by misuse and overuse of certain substances in a period of 12 months.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

Opioid addiction involves addiction to legal or illegal opioids. It may happen very quickly with any opioid use. Sometimes within a matter of days. Opioid addiction is a known as a high-risk factor for future heroin addiction.

Opioid withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and lead the user to continue to use even if they want to quit. Stopping using an opioid requires careful medical observation. Sometimes the withdrawal can persist for many weeks, which can put the user at a high risk for relapse.

It is recommended to receive inpatient treatment and a medically supervised detox like those offered at Meta House - Outpatient in Milwaukee, WI, WI, to manage the withdrawal process while learning lasting tools to maintain recovery. In some circumstances medications can be used to manage opioid addiction.

Outpatient therapy provided by Meta House - Outpatient is usually recommended as a follow up to inpatient therapy. It helps patients adapt to their normal lives after treatment. In some cases, it can also be an alternative to inpatient treatment. People may choose this route if they are unable to leave their jobs, children or if they don’t have the money for inpatient treatment. However, inpatient treatment is the best way to recover from addiction.

Unresolved trauma is often a key reason why many patients resorted to substance abuse. Trauma therapy refers to treatment wherein specialist therapists help the patients to resolve the trauma that led the patients to substance abuse. The trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. Thinking of these traumatic events causes emotional disturbances like anxiety, depression and results in addiction. If trauma is the primary cause of substance abuse, then both issues must be addressed. Otherwise, there is a risk of relapse. Trauma therapy also improves the cognitive functions and provides long term benefits.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an improved version of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). DBT is a treatment of choice for people suffering from self-harming behaviors characterized by cutting and suicidal thoughts or inclinations.

This treatment is developed to help individuals recognize their thought patterns, behaviors, and feelings. It has demonstrated its effectiveness for people that are finding it difficult to control their emotions and urges. Conditions such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and borderline personality disorder also benefit from DBT as it imparts individuals stress-management techniques and enhanced self-esteem so they can sustain their sobriety by reducing the impact of triggers and out-of-control emotions.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a way of addressing concerns through talking. It can be used in individual counseling sessions. Talking through issues with professionals at Meta House - Outpatient can identify sources of discomfort or unhealthy thoughts. It is a way of learning about yourself and your individual perceptions. CBT is a healthy way of addressing some behaviors which may be bringing unintended consequences in your life.

Alcoholics Anonymous is responsible for the development of the popular “12 Step Program” Most substance treatment centers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, like Meta House - Outpatient, have their own 12 step program designed to help users achieve sobriety. The first three steps depend on the patient, so they are more specific and situational. The succeeding four steps center on practical issues brought on by substance abuse.

Contingency management is a way to help motivate someone to remain substance free. It is a process of rewarding positive choices and good outcomes. As humans we are wired to recreate experiences that lead to positive feelings. Through this method incentives are used for completing positive steps towards a sober life. This may be a reward for attending meetings, remaining sober or for employment goals.
