Substance Abuse + Addiction

Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. Psychoactive substances are those that affect brain function. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. The overuse of psychoactive substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence. It also affects the social life and relationships of the affected individual. Substance abuse is treatable.

The duration of treatment at New Choices in Billings can be weeks or even months depending on the severity of the condition as there is a risk of relapse. Treatment options include medications, counseling sessions, various types of behavioral therapy, and group therapy in different combinations.

Alcoholism

One of the most prevalent forms of addiction is alcoholism. The standard treatment approach is abstinence to promote non-addictive habits, patients detox, and attend counseling sessions at New Choices. This aims to enhance the wellbeing and mental attitude of the patient.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction

Addiction to prescription opioid painkillers like oxycodone and hydrocodone, and illicit opioids such as heroin, leads to potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms when discontinued.

Treatment also includes comprehensive mental health counseling.

Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Long Term (>30 Days), Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, Short Term (<30 Days), with additional therapies available as listed below.

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.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Daily trips to the hospital that provides the treatment include intensive outpatient services (IOP). IOP in Montana is appropriate for patients in residential recovery facilities that have been diagnosed with addiction. Patients return to their everyday lives gradually, increasing the likeliness of success in treatment.

Aftercare Support

Treatment is just a first step in sustaining sobriety. After rehabilitation, counseling for aftercare helps the person adapt to a life without drugs. A sober living facility in Billings, job therapy, or educational assistance may be included in this service, managed by New Choices. This is when a preventive strategy for relapse starts to take shape.

Inpatient

Inpatient programs are intensive regimes that require individuals suffering from serious addictions to admit themselves into a controlled environment. Inpatient programs in Montana generally span over 28 days to six months. The first step in an inpatient program is medically assisted detox. Doctors and addiction specialists at New Choices monitor the individual’s vital signs as the drugs leave their system. Some inpatient rehab programs also provide counseling for family members to provide encouragement and emotional support. In inpatient programs, patients have access to 24-hour medical supervision.

Dual-Diagnosis

Mental illness includes conditions such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder. It can also happen that mental illness causes drug addiction and vice versa. New Choices in Montana knows it is vital to diagnose dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder.

Partial Hospitalization Program

To protect those dealing with acute symptoms of addiction, a partial hospitalization program is ideal in the treatment process. This ensures that the person is cared for in a hospital-like environment in Billings, MT during the battle against drug addiction effects. Most PHPs need therapy for about six hours, at least three days a week.

Outpatient

To assist with alcohol or opioid abuse, or a co-occurring condition, New Choices offers an outpatient treatment program. For their rehabilitation and other services, the Montana patient will go to the treatment center, yet return home every night. After most of the program is completed, the level of mandatory participation reduces.

Residential Treatment

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.
