    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    Alcoholism, Dual Diagnosis, Opioid Addiction, Substance Abuse

    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

    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.

    Alcoholism Treatment at New Freedom Academy

    It is important to remember that alcoholism is a disease. This means it’s not a matter of “deciding” to stop drinking any more than you can decide to stop having cancer. Many of the most effective alcohol treatment methods are based on this realization, giving people some control over their drinking.

    Alcohol addiction treatment often uses some combination of individual and group counseling, medication, and support groups. In many cases, people who have been addicted to alcohol for a long time will feel an intense craving for alcohol that can last for months or years. However, with the help of counselors and support groups, many people learn to avoid alcohol and remain sober.

    Most of these methods emphasize the importance of the alcoholic’s willingness to stop drinking and their commitment to remain abstinent.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

    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.

    Levels of Care Offered

Another benefit of Aftercare Support is that participants learn to maintain their sobriety through holistic methods.

    Inpatient Care

    Inpatient rehab means you live there while your addiction or co-occurring disorder is treated. Prescribed medications are used along with counseling.

    This type of rehabilitation provides a drug-free environment for people who struggle with chronic/long-term addiction (or their own home). Jobs or school can be put on hold until after the stay to focus solely on recovery.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    A drug rehab center that uses Dual Diagnosis is more likely to be successful. 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. Dual diagnoses often go undiagnosed, and the most severe of them may result in a dual diagnosis.

Interventionists are trained professionals who help family members plan or lead interventions.
