    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 at Oconee Center - Child and Adolescents Services

    Substance abuse creates problems that affect people in Milledgeville, GA on many levels. First, substance abuse affects the individual who is abusing drugs or alcohol. This can result in health problems, including heart damage and overdose. Substance abuse also affects the user’s family, friends, co-workers, classmates, or peers. These people feel frustrated because they do not know how to help their loved ones struggling with addiction. At the same time, the addict cannot control his behavior. Lastly, friends and family members of addicts are affected financially by substance abuse.

    The good news is that effective treatments can help prevent substance abuse or treat its effects on the user. These treatments, which include behavioral therapy and counseling sessions, target the underlying causes of substance abuse, helping users achieve sobriety so they can regain control over their lives. They also teach users to cope with stress in ways other than using drugs or alcohol.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Milledgeville, GA

    Opioid addiction has become a significant health problem in the United States. When a person’s life becomes unmanageable because of an opioid addiction, treatment can help them get sober. Treatment includes medical care and counseling.

Opioid addicts often take opioids when they experience a painful injury – that’s how the cycle starts! When someone begins taking their medication differently than prescribed or takes an excessive amount of drugs, it means they’re hooked on drugs and in danger of overdosing.

    The most successful way to beat this is through detoxing from these types treatments at Oconee Center - Child and Adolescents Services in . Most facilities start by using medical support during the process while providing counseling services; rehabilitation comes later on after treatment has been completed successfully.

    Drug Detox

    The first level of recovery is detox. It involves giving a person the opportunity to get the toxins out of their body safely. The individual receiving treatment at Oconee Center - Child and Adolescents Services typically will get ill during detox, and they will often start using again to get rid of unpleasant emotions and complicated physical responses. It is why having a Georgia medical professional present is so critical. A medical professional can make sure that patients do not start using again during detox and stay physically healthy during the process. They will also have treatment on a mental level to relieve their symptoms and guide them through the process.

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Going to an inpatient rehab facility means living there while all aspects of addiction or co-occurring disorder get addressed. The treatment involves medical supervision, therapy, and future planning.

    This type of rehabilitation provides a drug-free environment for people who struggle with chronic/long-term addiction without having access to drugs outside the center (or their own home). It takes away any distractions because they live there 24 hours per day. If someone is trying to break out old habits, which could lead them back into substance abuse, things like jobs or school can be put on hold until after they complete their stay to focus solely on recovery.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Outpatient addiction treatment is beneficial for people who are able to function well in their day-to-day lives. It is recommended for people who are not yet ready to end their relationships with friends or family members who might be encouraging drug and alcohol use.

    Intensive outpatient treatment is beneficial for:

    • People who are able to attend treatment more than 3 times per week.
    • People who do not meet the criteria for inpatient treatment.
    • People who are able to contribute to their own recovery outside of the treatment center.
    • People who are motivated towards recovery.
    • People who are able to overcome addiction on their own without the need for higher levels of care.

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient programs at Oconee Center - Child and Adolescents Services, the Milledgeville resident can live with their family while continuing with their job or studies. Treatment includes educating the patient on drug abuse, medications, and counseling sessions at the individual or group level. Outpatient treatment plans cover diagnosis, detoxification, management, and counseling. They are a popular option for those who have graduated from inpatient facilities.

    Sober living homes (abbreviated SLHs or sometimes sober houses ) are temporary housing for recovering addicts, most often those in early or mid stage recovery, who typically live in the home for 3 to 6 months.

    The typical SLH functions as a halfway house, providing a stable living environment for addicts in recovery.

    While at an SLH, residents typically meet with various therapists on site and attend regular 12-step meetings as well as other recovery group meetings.

    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.

    Interventionism is a technique used to help an addict get clean and sober. The process begins with the addict’s family, friends, and co-workers gathering together to confront the addict about their addiction. This often happens when the addict is in the middle of a particularly bad bout of drug abuse.

    The addict’s friends and family members are encouraged to share their feelings about the addict’s behavior with them, as well as what it’s doing to the addict and their loved ones. At first, the addict is typically resistant to this form of treatment because they feel it’s an intrusion on their private life. They may be upset or even angry at the interventionist for orchestrating this meeting. Over time, though, most addicts come to understand that their loved ones are only trying to help them.

    During the intervention, the addict’s family and friends are encouraged to tell the addict how their drug use has affected their lives. The interventionist is there to help everyone organize their thoughts and communicate their message. They also help to ensure that the conversation doesn’t become aggressive or combative, which could put the addict on the defensive and make them reject the intervention.

    This kind of treatment aims to get the addict in touch with their feelings about their addiction. They are encouraged to speak honestly about their drug use, as well as how it’s making them feel. They’re also asked to consider the consequences of their drug use and how it’s hurting their loved ones. The addict is allowed to see how their addiction has become a problem for everyone around them.

    Without aftercare support, addicts can easily relapse back into addiction. It is crucial to integrate the addict back into society. Aftercare support should take place after outpatient treatment has ended.

    There are a few different types of aftercare support that patients can seek after completing an inpatient treatment program:

    • 12 Step Self-help groups (AA, NA)
    • Therapeutic communities,
    • Long-term, structured sober living arrangements
    • Halfway houses (residential treatment centers)

    Many different support groups exist for addicts to seek help after treatment. Some are more effective than others, depending on the person’s addiction, background, and other factors.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Milledgeville, GA Facility.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy is often done alongside drug treatment to help addicts stay sober. The goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can happen without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist will sit with the family so they can learn how to communicate differently and provide new tools for dealing with emotions so that people don’t want to drink or do drugs. It’s important for families to focus on relapse prevention plans during treatment so that if the addict feels like they want to use again, they’ll know what steps they need to take together to prevent it from happening again in the future.

    Group therapy sessions are another common addiction recovery service. These group sessions typically involve six to 12 addicts who meet regularly with a trained professional for support and guidance.

    During these sessions, the group shares their experiences with one another and provides feedback that can help each member avoid relapse or overcome specific obstacles they are facing in their recovery process. With this type of support and guidance, addicts can feel like they are part of a community that understands their struggles and will help them get through the hard times.

    Many people struggling with drug addiction have experienced some form of trauma in their lives. It is crucial that these individuals seek out professional help; otherwise, their drug abuse and addiction will likely continue.

    Therapists and counselors at drug treatment centers employ several treatment programs to help people struggling with drug addiction, including trauma therapy. Trauma therapy helps people dealing with addiction by allowing them to confront the traumas of their past and move past them.

    It is important to note that trauma therapy should not be confused with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Rather, it is used to treat the effects of trauma, which are often at the root of addiction.

    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a treatment method that helps reduce the impact of traumatic memories on individuals. It involves following a bar of light or watching a therapist’s finger move back and forth. This mimics the eye movements of REM sleep, which allows the brain to reprocess memories. EMDR therapy is combined with behavioral therapies to address the root cause of the problem. This reduces the desire to escape painful memories with drugs.

    EMDR can be helpful for people who turn to drugs to escape traumatic events. It is a treatment that reduces the impact these memories have on emotions. Individuals who suffer from negative feelings associated with a traumatic experience can find relief in EMDR therapy. This treatment is combined with behavioral therapies. Patients follow a bar of light throughout the session or watch their therapist’s finger move back and forth. These rapid eye movements reduce feelings of negativity and promote calmness and relaxation. This minimizes the impact traumatic memories have on emotions, reducing the desire to escape painful memories with drugs.

    The 12-step program is one of the most common forms of addiction treatment today. It consists of attending meetings and working with a sponsor to follow the 12 steps outlined by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The 12-step program was created to assist alcoholics in getting sober and staying clean. However, it is now used for a variety of addictive substances. The 12-step program encourages addicts to completely give up their former lifestyle, which is not always practical or possible for everyone.

    It is essential to remember that abstinence from drugs and alcohol is the only way to ensure long-term sobriety.

    12-Step programs can be beneficial for some people, but it all depends on the individual and whether or not they’re capable of completely giving up their addiction. This method is not for addicts who are unwilling to or have no desire to quit using and so is best utilized when paired with other treatment methods.

    It’s not as simple as quitting drinking or using drugs and expecting the hard part to be over. Many addicts in recovery have discovered that they need to improve skills such as time management, organization, communication, socialization, and self-esteem. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction.

    Creative Arts

    Creative Arts Therapy is one of the most effective types of therapy used in addiction recovery. The use of art, music, dance and other creative pursuits stimulate neurogenesis (the growth of new brain cells) Many addicts have short attention spans and have difficulty focusing on tasks. Creative arts therapy promotes changes in brain function to increase memory and the ability to focus; it also helps raise awareness of feelings.

    Experiential Therapy at Oconee Center - Child and Adolescents Services

    Drug addiction causes the formation of abnormal connections between neurons in the brain to form due to repeated exposure to drugs. These connections are responsible for addictive behaviors to drugs. Experiential therapy is done with patients individually and is different from traditional talk therapy. This therapy can help people revisit past traumas, heal, and move on in life in a more authentic way.

    Experiential therapy uses activities to recreate experiences that may have caused trauma or negative emotions. These activities include role-playing, arts and crafts, animal care, music, or rock climbing. The individual will gradually experience calmness and love and change their perception positively through this therapy. Other than drug addiction, experiential therapy can be helpful for behavioral or eating disorders.
