    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    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.

    Alcoholism Treatment in Denver, CO

    There are multiple types of alcoholism treatments based on the severity of the addiction and its causes. Some people require a longer term of treatment than others do. Many people can be treated on an outpatient basis, meaning they attend therapy at the facility as an outpatient.

    The most common type of alcoholism treatment is psychotherapy or talk therapy. This includes group or individual therapy sessions. It is used to help those with alcoholism learn more about their addiction and triggers. Therapy sessions often include a counselor, but family members may attend as well. The patient learns to identify the early stages of alcohol relapse, and how to avoid it before it begins.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Denver, CO

    With so many people addicted to opioids, we need to help those who want to quit. The cycle begins when opioid addicts take opioids for a painful injury. When someone starts taking their medication differently or in excess, it means they’re addicted and at risk of overdosing.

    In , detoxing from these types of treatments is the most effective way to beat this. Most facilities begin with medical assistance and then provide counseling services; rehabilitation follows after successful treatment.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is effective for drug rehab, but it can take six months to several years to complete. It’s the most popular type of drug rehab program in the United States. One example of a successful IOP success story is actor and comedian Chris Rock, sober since 1990.

    An IOP allows participants to spend nights at home while attending meetings throughout the day. It’s a good way for drug addicts to make a recovery plan in an outpatient setting while still supporting their loved ones.

    Outpatient Program

    Alcohol or drug addiction, or co-occurring disorders, are treated in an outpatient program. The patient must attend therapy and other programs at the facility but can return home each night.

    Outpatient treatment allows recovering addicts to live at home while receiving addiction treatment. Outpatients can attend group sessions for a few hours per week. Outpatients may also continue to work full time and study/attend school without interruption if they choose.

    Aftercare Support

    The accomplishment of completing a drug or alcohol treatment program is just the first step. Once that is complete, aftercare support comes into play. This includes helping people adjust to life without substances outside of guidelines with assistance like getting sober living accommodations and career counseling and AA/NA programs for those who are struggling between sobriety or want continued help in maintaining it once they have completed their initial rehabilitation at an addiction facility.

    Aftercare comprises services that help recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day activities while working on specific issues. These problems include psychiatric issues, family problems caused by substance abuse, continuing education pursuits if desired during rehab, etc. These can last up to one year+ depending on what’s needed most urgently upon completion of earlier stages.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Denver, CO Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Different people react differently to various treatment options. Some drug rehabilitation centers offer individualized treatment that caters to the specific needs of a drug addict. The best treatment option varies on an individual depending on the type of drug abused, life history, medical condition of the person, social circumstances, and the environment they live in now.

    When a person enters drug rehab, they usually have anti-drug associations such as withdrawal symptoms, stress, cravings, etc. The first step of drug rehab is to detoxify the body from any residual substances in it. Drug rehabilitation centers usually employ trained medical professionals to help in this process. Usually, the initial detoxification lasts for five days, where the person is monitored under close supervision.

    Depending on the withdrawal symptoms of an individual, medical professionals may give medications to manage them. The next step of drug rehab treatment is to address the psychiatric and behavioral problems of the patient. The drug rehab center needs to employ trained professionals like psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and recreational therapists. A combination of different treatment options is chosen to address the specific needs of a patient.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy is a treatment method used to help couples in which at least one member of the couple has a drug addiction. The treatment is designed to help the couple strengthen their relationship to minimize the effects of drug addiction on their lives and promote healthy communication between them.

    Couples therapy can be used whether the addicted partner is using drugs or in recovery. It helps the couple create healthy communication and coping skills to minimize the problem-solving abilities of one partner, which can then be directed at solving issues related to their addiction. It also helps couples address problems that may be related to drug addiction. Couples therapy can help couples feel like a team and not feel like their partner is the problem.

    Couples therapy is very challenging for both the drug addict and their partner. It requires an intense commitment between the two individuals to participate in the sessions and the homework assigned between sessions.

    An additional benefit of couples therapy is that it can help make other types of treatment, such as 12-step programs, more effective.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy sessions typically involve the addict and their family members. During these sessions, a therapist will work with everyone involved to help them understand addiction and find healthy ways of coping without substance abuse.

    Some addicts might feel embarrassed about their substance abuse problems. By encouraging family members to attend these sessions, therapists can show addicts that they’re not alone in dealing with addiction. Therapists can also work with family members to help them understand addiction and learn how to offer support and encouragement to their loved one as they deal with substance abuse issues.

    Group Counseling

    Attending group therapy at National Institute for Change - Denver in , is a useful way for those seeking sobriety to realize they aren’t the only one going through it.

    This is when a group of people on different recovery phases get together and talk about what they’re going through, their triggers, successes, and failures. This can include alternative types of therapies too! Group therapy may occur on an outpatient or inpatient basis with groups that have no pre-existing relationships outside the session, unlike support groups where everyone already knows each other beforehand.

    Trauma Therapy at National Institute for Change - Denver

    Trauma therapy is a form of therapy used to help people process and understand past traumas. This can help struggling addicts, as many people turn to drugs or alcohol to mask the pain of their past. Trauma therapy can be done in several ways, such as through visualization, discussion, and writing down thoughts and feelings. The goal is to help the individual understand why they are having problems coping with certain situations and changing how they think and react to things. This is often done in tandem with other therapies to treat the underlying issues associated with addiction.

    The idea behind trauma therapy is that while some people can experience traumatic events and not have lasting psychiatric symptoms, many others will. In these cases, memories get hidden from consciousness but continue to influence how the person processes and copes with things in their life. They may avoid situations that resemble what happened or become suddenly angry or irritated to a situation that reminds them of a past event. With the help of a therapist, people can go back over memories and experiences. This helps them understand why they are having problems coping with certain situations and changing how they think and react to things.
