    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    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 Safe Harbor Recovery Center

    Substance abuse creates problems that affect people in Portsmouth, VA 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.

    Alcoholism Treatment in Portsmouth, VA

    Alcoholism is a common form of addiction, and the standard treatment approach is abstinence. Patients detox and attend therapy sessions with professionals at treatment centers like Safe Harbor Recovery Center, to encourage non-addictive behaviors.

    Researchers have found that successful treatment leads to decreased alcohol cravings and increased memory of the harmful consequences of drinking. Other studies done on the same topic show beneficial changes in cravings and stress levels.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Portsmouth, VA

    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.

    “With so many people struggling with opioid addiction, we need more care and attention for those who want to quit. 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 Safe Harbor Recovery Center 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.

    Dual-Diagnosis Treatment at Safe Harbor Recovery Center

    A “dual diagnosis” is when the individual has two medical issues at the same time. The top co-occurring mental disorders with addiction are depression, anxiety, ADHD, bi-polar disorder. Addiction is also considered a mental illness that is not a choice but rather a medical condition. Addiction can be caused by any number of underlying issues.

    Dual diagnosis is provided by Safe Harbor Recovery Center to treat addictive tendencies as well as any untreated mental illnesses. This ensures successful long term health and recovery for patients after treatment has been completed.

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    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.

    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 Portsmouth, VA Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy is a form of counseling where you meet with a trained professional one-on-one. Meeting with a therapist in this setting allows for a personal and trusting relationship to be built. This allows the patient to open up about sensitive or private issues they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group. Individual therapy helps identify the root causes of your addiction, which can help prevent relapse.

    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.

    Medical nutrition therapy for addiction helps patients at Safe Harbor Recovery Center avoid “trigger” foods. Someone who craves alcohol may be sugar addicted. Eating a balanced diet with adequate protein, vegetables, and fruit can help reduce drinking urges.

    MNT is a type of addiction treatment that teaches patients about healthy eating habits while counseling them. These sessions include meal planning, cooking demonstrations, shopping tips, grocery store tours, and food education.

    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.
