    Drug Rehabilitation

    Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.

    Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

    Rehab centers exist in Portland, OR 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 NARA Treatment 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 NARA Treatment in Portland, OR, OR, to manage the withdrawal process while learning lasting tools to maintain recovery. In some circumstances medications can be used to manage opioid addiction.

    Inpatient Drug Rehab

    Inpatient rehab programs like what’s offered at NARA Treatment in Portland, OR are ideal for covering all the bases that surround one’s addiction. It’s considered the most comprehensive approach to care for people afflicted with addiction. Patients live in a facility where they have access to therapy and medical care 24/7.

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient treatment is treatment that occurs when a patient is not checked into a rehab facility. The patient may show up for therapy sessions, go through detox and engage in other therapies to help them recover. However, they will do so while they live at home in Oregon.

    Outpatient therapy provided by NARA Treatment 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.

    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.

    Aftercare support involves the support given to a Portland, Oregon patient after they complete treatment. It helps them adjust to normal life. It may include setting them up in a halfway house and enrolling them in programs like Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). NARA Treatment‘s patients may also be provided with career training to help them get back into the job force.

    NARA Treatment‘s Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy aims to identify the core issues that would have led the patient to substance abuse and address the root cause effectively. Patients find the therapist as a person who they can trust. It helps them to open up and discuss personal and sensitive issues, which they may not be comfortable discussing in a group.

    Couples Therapy at NARA Treatment

    Couples therapy is an approach wherein the patients and their partners are engaged together as a part of the treatment process. When a person becomes a victim of substance abuse, it affects the patient and the people around him, particularly his partner. Their relationship can become strained due to lack of communication, financial issues, loss of trust, lack of intimacy, and physical abuse in more severe cases.

    Couples therapy addresses these issues and tries to rebuild the trust between the partners. The partner’s involvement in the process will result in greater chances of treatment success and sustained recovery.

    Family Counseling + Treatment

    Family therapy is a set of therapeutic approaches that assumes that the entire family is a system. It utilizes the strengths and resources of the family to help the patient refrain from resorting to substance abuse. It helps to repair relationships and improve communication between family members.

    Group therapy happens at NARA Treatment in a controlled group environment, as opposed to a one-on-one setting. It supports Portland, OR patients’ recovery by offering a sense of comfort and letting them know that they are not alone. Through shared conversations, patients also learn to develop faith and understanding and gain insight on their addictions.

    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.

    Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) sees a person suffering from substance addiction to have illogical reasoning, counterproductive actions, and does not see things clearly. Due to this, REBT deals with cognition, images, and behavior extensively to rectify the client’s bad habits. REBT pushes an individual to become more reasonable and choose a life without the repercussions of addictions.

    Patients at NARA Treatment in Portland, OR learn how to self-soothe by conducting rational self-counseling. REBT provides their patients with the skill sets necessary in handling problems all by themselves, without seeking professional help. The process calls for practice, reiteration, and bolstering the new way of thinking being introduced to the patient.

    Alcoholics Anonymous is responsible for the development of the popular “12 Step Program” Most substance treatment centers in Portland, Oregon, like NARA Treatment, 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.

    Medical Nutrition Therapy, also called nutrition therapy and MNT, helps someone recovering from an addiction learn how to replenish their body with the nutrients that food can provide. This helps improve medical, physical, and emotional conditions resulting from an addiction. These skills are taught by dietitians and nutritionists at NARA Treatment in Portland, Oregon who understand the effects of addiction.
    People who leave treatment without learning life skills from staff at NARA Treatment are at a disadvantage when it comes to maintaining sobriety. Although it is difficult to teach life skills, aftercare support helps patients develop these skills over time. Life skills taught in Oregon include things like finding a job and a good place to live, self-care, and managing finances.
