This is followed up by therapies to correct behavior and target the root of the problem.

    An Outpatient Rehab Program is a part-time drug rehab program for treating individuals in Onarga, IL with mild addiction or mild-to-moderate drug withdrawal symptoms. It generally requires about 10 to 12 hours every week.

    Doctors can administer on-the-spot medication to ease withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, increased heart rate, and even depression. Groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can be used as a part of outpatient treatment to help maintain sobriety.

    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 at Nexus - Onarga Academy, in short, is the support provided to a patient after they have finished treatment. It allows them to adjust to everyday life.

Career coaching may also be offered to patients to help them get back into the workforce.

    Therapies & Programs

    Individual therapy refers to one-on-one psychotherapy between a patient and their Nexus - Onarga Academy therapist. Individual therapy seeks to help identify the issues that drive and contribute to a client’s addiction or alcoholism. Another goal of individual counseling is to assist the client to learn how to manage their lives without alcohol or drugs.

    Addiction is a family disease. Family therapy is a common tool that is used during inpatient treatment. While living with active addiction in Onarga, Illinois, it is impossible for family members not to be affected. In order to have the greatest chances for long term sobriety, healing any family trauma and dysfunctional communications is important. Family therapy aims to heal and rebalance unhealthy roles and habits.

    Group therapy occurs in a group setting as opposed to a one on one setting. It benefits patients by providing a feeling of support and letting them know they are not alone. Patients at Nexus - Onarga Academy also learn to build trust and understanding and gain perspective through discussions.

    After experiencing trauma, it’s crucial to look for a facility that can provide trauma therapy. This approach zeroes in on the traumatic incidents that a patient has encountered in the past, recent or not. It’s been widely known that trauma can make an individual resort to alcohol or other substances to mask their troubles and pain. Trauma can originate from domestic violence, sexual abuse, an early encounter with death, sexual assault, and many more. The goal of trauma therapy at Nexus - Onarga Academy in Onarga, IL is to help the patient see beyond the trauma and move forward. Mental health professionals will facilitate the patient’s journey and see to it that he or she is no longer a victim of his or her traumatic experiences and has wholly regained his or her personal power.

    Most individuals suffering from addiction have low self-awareness, so they end up making poor decisions. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is suitable for patients recovering from an addiction of any kind. Through it, patients become more aligned with their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, giving them a better opportunity to respond appropriately to temptations and negative feelings.

    This therapy modality at Nexus - Onarga Academy in Onarga, IL strengthens a person’s ability to stay on top of their emotional state and learn new stress management techniques so they won’t give in to the temptations easily. Moreover, CBT helps people communicate and express their emotions well, which can be vital in relapse management. CBT is also suitable for managing co-occurring disorders like depression and bipolar illness.

    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is designed to help patients process trauma. During the therapy, patients follow a bar of light or watch their therapist’s finger move back and forth. This mimics the eye movements of REM sleep. These are the same movements that allow the brain to reprocess memories. When traumatic memories are reprocessed, it reduces the impact they have on emotions. This treatment, offered by Nexus - Onarga Academy, can be helpful to patients who turn to drugs to escape painful memories.

    When it comes to maintaining sobriety, people who quit recovery without developing life skills are disadvantaged. While teaching life skills at Nexus - Onarga Academy is difficult, support with aftercare helps patients learn these skills over time. Life skills include getting a career, living in a good environment, self-care, and finance management, all in Onarga, IL.
