    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.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    A person who struggles with addiction and a mental health condition suffers from a dual diagnosis. This means that they have two issues that must be treated. The specific mental health issues that the patient at Northern Maine Medical Center might have include but are not limited to:

    • Depression
    • Bipolar Disorder
    • Anxiety
    • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

    The specific addiction issues that the patient might have include but are not limited to:

    • Alcoholism
    • Drug Addiction (i.e., Cocaine, Meth, and other stimulants, Marijuana, and Ecstasy)

    The combination of the two illnesses can be tough to treat. Taking care of one or the other is tough, and taking care of both cannot be done alone. A patient who receives dual diagnosis treatment will be given the best chance at becoming sober.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual.

    Individual Therapy

    Individualized Treatment is essential because it gives addicts the ability to participate in a program that meets their unique needs. An addict should work with professionals who understand what they’re going through, especially if the addict is actively using. Finding the right treatment program for an addict is difficult, but it’s even harder without communicating with those who have experience treating your specific situation.

    Group therapy sessions provide recovering addicts with a chance to cope with everyday situations that many face. Group therapy sessions are held in rehab facilities, clinics, churches or community centers that offer drug addiction treatment.

    People who attend these groups are encouraged to voice their feelings and support other addicts in recovery. This helps group members strengthen their own recovery program while cheering on others who are struggling with sobriety.

    Trauma therapy allows them to work through past trauma to have peace of mind and begin down the road of sobriety. The therapist will work with the individual to help them understand their past and present relationships. Patients may often believe that something is inherently wrong with them or they are unworthy of love. The therapist aims to correct these negative feelings and behaviors by helping the person realize that their actions do not reflect who they truly are.

    For people trying to kick their drug addiction, nutrition therapy at Northern Maine Medical Center is a great tool. Nutritional deficiencies gradually creep in, and before you know it, you’re facing health problems. It helps restore balance to the body, and for many addicts, it represents the first step on the road to recovery.

    Nicotine replacement therapy was developed to help people quit smoking. It does so by providing small doses of nicotine that control cravings and break smoking habits.

    NRTC products like skin patches and gum deliver low-dose nicotine that prevents cravings, making the transition from smoker to non-smoker easier.
