    Some addicts can benefit from substance abuse treatment, which is designed to help them become and remain sober without the use of medications. These programs are typically used by those struggling with drugs like marijuana or hallucinogens. However, they might be beneficial for those with a co-occurring mental health disorder like schizophrenia, major depression or bipolar disorder.

    During this type of treatment, the addict will meet with therapists and other professionals on a regular basis to learn coping skills and healthy ways to deal with their addiction and mental health disorder.

    Treatment programs often combine medications with counseling, support groups and even medical services like those found in hospitals or doctor’s offices. There are also detoxification services that addicts can use to get sober and avoid severe withdrawal symptoms.

    Opioids are a group of drugs that include substances such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone. These drugs activate opioid receptors in the brain, which produce pleasurable feelings. Opioid addiction occurs when drugs are abused at increasing rates or increasing amounts because the body becomes tolerant of them.

    Opioid addiction is typically diagnosed when drug abuse becomes a typical behavior that interferes with an individual’s ability to function daily. The use of the substance results in consequences like legal problems.

    Treatment for opioid addiction varies depending on each individual’s needs. Some treatments focus on replacing opioids with other drugs that have similar effects of reducing withdrawal symptoms. Other treatments aim to reduce the risk of relapse by providing psychological support or using more natural methods.

    A drug rehab center that uses Dual Diagnosis is more likely to be successful in rehabilitating a person. Dual diagnosis helps to identify and treat any co-occurring disorders. It is essential to screen for both addiction and any untreated mental health issues. A dual diagnosis gives rehab the means to treat addiction while restoring mental and emotional health.

    About 70% of patients with drug addiction have at least one other psychiatric diagnosis. Fortunately, dual diagnosis treatment is a proven model that has been highly effective.

    Levels of Care Offered

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

They are ideal for those who have graduated from inpatient facilities, have a supportive home environment, and are motivated to commit to the program. Services offered include medication-assisted treatment, individual and group therapy, and peer group support.

    This treatment is a popular option for those suffering from a lower intensity addiction. It is not advisable for someone who needs to go through a medically supervised detox or does not have a supportive home environment. It requires motivation and dedication to commit to the program without constant monitoring.

    Aftercare Support in drug rehab is crucial because it helps people stay sober after treatment. Aftercare Support in drug rehab is helpful because it provides the recovering person with a support group, including family members, friends, and other peers who are also in recovery.

    The benefits of Aftercare Support are that it provides a pathway that will help people get sober for life. It supports healing at all levels, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Another benefit of Aftercare Support is that participants learn to maintain their sobriety through holistic methods.

    Therapies & Programs

    During individual therapy at MHS - Big Bear Outpatient in , the person in recovery meets with a therapist one on one to go over their situation and learn from past mistakes.

They will also address aftercare plans, giving them the best chances of long-term sobriety.

    This therapeutic process is very intense and challenging to go through. Some clients may find it easier to open up with someone apart from their family or loved ones who understand their struggles and experience with addiction.

    Family therapy is designed to help addicts get clean and sober by using what they love the most; their family. Most drug treatment centers make it mandatory that the addict’s family attend therapy sessions, which is great because having everyone there to support them makes it much easier for them to get clean. Not only are they surrounded by people who want them to get better, but everyone is there because they want the best for them, not because they feel like they have to be.

    Drug addicts are often surrounded by resentful or uneducated family members who would, at times, rather see them stay addicted because it makes their own lives easier. Sometimes they don’t understand what the addiction is or how they play a part in it. They know that during and after the addict’s sobriety journey, they will face challenges and changes that they aren’t sure how to handle. This can be very tough for an addict to go through on their own, which is why it’s so important that they have the support of their family. Just because someone is an addict does not mean that they don’t deserve the love and support of those around them.

    Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on eliminating specific negative thoughts, such as suicidal thoughts. These negative thoughts can potentially lead to an individual inflicting self-harm. It helps treat patients exhibiting uncontrollable emotions, intense mood swings, and borderline personality disorders.

    The term “Dialectic” means the integration of opposites. In substance abuse, DBT refers to accepting the patient’s addiction and working to change their thoughts and behavior. It improves life skills such as controlling intense emotions without reacting impulsively, resolving interpersonal conflicts effectively, and promoting awareness about self and others.

With this type of therapy, addicts are taught how to manage their time, attain specific goals, and take care of all facets of their lives without the influence of drugs or alcohol.

In the process, therapists help addicts develop strategies for fulfilling their goals and successfully managing their responsibilities.

    In many cases, this type of therapy is used in conjunction with other types of addiction treatment services to address specific issues that affect a recovering addict’s ability to stay sober.

    Nutrition therapy has been used as a treatment modality for addiction recovery and in eating disorders for adults, adolescents, and children.
