Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Danbury, CT
Opioid addiction treatment should be done in a medically supervised drug rehab. Opioid addiction treatment will include detoxification and drug rehab counseling to help both the user and their loved ones learn how to live a successful sober lifestyle. Methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are three medications that can help treat opioid addiction. Individual drug rehab counseling sessions can be helpful to discuss any questions or concerns with the drug treatment program.
When addiction and psychiatric issues co-occur, the addict’s recovery is more successful when both conditions are treated. A dual diagnosis refers to a condition in which the patient is diagnosed with two health issues: addiction and bipolar disorder.
Usually, dual diagnosis sufferers are prescribed a combination of treatments for each condition. The most common therapies are psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, spiritual counseling, 12-step programs, and medication management.
Psychiatric conditions are an obstacle to recovery because they can create roadblocks to a healthy lifestyle. Drugs and alcohol may be used as a means of self-medication, which can have dangerous consequences. Over time, addicts build up a tolerance and suffer withdrawal symptoms when drug use is stopped.
With the proper treatment, dual diagnosis sufferers can overcome their conditions and achieve lasting sobriety.

The staff members also provide the residents with resources to equip themselves better to live a sober life. They also provide them with opportunities for exercise, many of which encourage learning coping mechanisms that will be helpful later on.
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 are designed to help family members and friends confront an addict about their drug use. While some addicts will immediately seek treatment after this confrontation, others don’t want to quit or need professional help with the process.
During an intervention, family members and friends work with a professional interventionist who will lead them through the discussion. This professional will help the addict understand that they need to get treatment and provide them with resources for recovery.
Aftercare is a part of drug rehabilitation. It is also known as “post-treatment support.” Aftercare programs are available for addicts after they complete drug rehab. It is often the final step in the recovery process. The goal of aftercare is to ensure that addicts maintain their achievements in rehab and do not relapse.

Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at Midwestern Connecticut Council on Alcoholism - Old Ridgebury Road.
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.

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 Midwestern Connecticut Council on Alcoholism - Old Ridgebury Road 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.
