12-Step Program Facilitation
Alcoholics Anonymous is responsible for the development of the popular “12 Step Program”. Most substance treatment centers have their own 12 step program designed to help users achieve sobriety. Because of this, most treatment plans follow a similar pattern when broken down.
The first three steps depend on the patient, so they are more specific and situational. The succeeding four steps center on practical issues brought on by substance abuse. Steps 8 and 9 deal with the social and emotional repercussions of addiction, encouraging patients to make amends to people they have wronged. These are followed by two steps revolving around the further exploration and reinforcement of Steps 1 to 9.
The last step requires an individual to extend a helping hand to people who are still in the early stages of their recovery.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Negative feelings are common in substance abuse disorders. If not recognized, they can cause co-occurring disorders. CBT involves strategies that help to change the thinking and behavioral pattern. It can be administered as a monotherapy as well as a part of combination therapy.

It makes it easier for the counselor and the patient to deal with the central issues, which are likely the culprits of substance addiction.
Couples therapy aims to rebuild the trust between the partners. Partner’s involvement in the process will result in greater chances of treatment success. Couples therapy addresses financial issues, loss of trust, lack of intimacy, and physical abuse.
Family Counseling + Therapy

It utilizes the strengths and resources of the family to help the patient refrain from resorting to substance abuse. The impact of substance abuse is not just on the patient but on the entire family. Family therapy ensures that the patient gets adequate support from the family members after the treatment making the recovery process sustainable

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)
Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is a treatment that helps people to quit smoking. In nicotine replacement therapy, a controlled amount of nicotine is provided in the form of gums, patches, or sprays. They do not contain the harmful chemicals usually found in tobacco products. NRT reduces the withdrawal symptoms by giving nicotine in low doses. However, NRT provides relief only from the physical withdrawal symptoms. The emotional and psychological aspects of quitting needs to be treated separately. While NRT is safe for most adults, teens and pregnant women should not undergo NRT. Research shows that the use of NRT doubles the chances of quitting smoking.
