Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

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.
Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Bemidji, MN
Opioid abuse has become a national epidemic in the last decade. The US has one of the world’s highest rates of opioid use and abuse, as well as opioid-related deaths. Opioids are classified as Schedule II-IV controlled substances in the US due to their high potential for abuse.
Oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and fentanyl are the most common Opioids and are commonly prescribed to treat pain. Tolerance to opioids develops over time, making life difficult, if not impossible, without them. Opioid users often obtain the drugs illegally. They can be drug dealers, friends, or family members who do not have valid prescriptions.
The desire for a more intense high than prescription opioids can quickly lead to heroin use. Heroin users are more prone to illness and death due to the high risk of overdose.
Many opioid addicts who seek treatment believe that the only way to overcome their addiction is through medical detox and long-term drug addiction rehab. To help patients wean off their addiction and reduce the risk of overdose, medication-assisted therapy (MAT) involves prescribing a replacement opioid. Doctors use MAT in conjunction with other anti-craving medications to help patients maintain recovery. Due to the high risk of relapse, MAT is often combined with individual and group counseling and social support programs.
When addiction and psychiatric issues co-occur, the addict’s recovery is more successful when both conditions are treated. A dual diagnosis refers to a condition in which the patient is diagnosed with two health issues: addiction and bipolar disorder. The most common therapies are psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, spiritual counseling, 12-step programs, and medication management.

Outpatient treatment is a recovery approach that allows recovering addicts to live at home while getting rehab for addiction
An outpatient can include day treatments which include attending group sessions one hour per week. A person living in an outpatient environment may be allowed the opportunity to work full time if they choose to and continue studies without interruption from drugs/alcohol.
Outpatient treatment is an option for people who want to maintain their careers and families. Outpatients live at home but attend treatment such as individual counseling, group counseling, or twelve-step meetings during the day.
Aftercare support is vital to the success of someone in drug or alcohol treatment. It involves assisting with entering a sober living home, getting career counseling or educational assistance and even getting the individual lined up with programs like AA and NA. This support helps recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day activities and maintain sobriety.
When a person is in drug or alcohol treatment, they have to increase their focus on themselves. They need to learn how to recognize the triggers that cause them to relapse and learn the habits that would benefit them if they were to be sober. This is all part of the growth in recovery, and aftercare is essential to that process.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at Sanford Behavioral Health Headwaters ACT.
At Sanford Behavioral Health Headwaters ACT , to learn from past mistakes and improve one’s situation, the recovering person meets individually with a therapist. The counselor or therapist will address addiction causes, triggers, mental issues, dual diagnosis, and aftercare plans during this time. This is a very intense and challenging process. Some clients find it easier to open up to someone other than family or friends who understand their struggles with addiction.
Family Counseling + Therapy
Family therapy is a crucial part of drug treatment and getting sober. It is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety. An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse. They can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track.
In group therapy, recovering addicts meet with a therapist and other people in recovery. Some groups are closed, meaning only people who share the same addiction or problem can attend. Others are open to anyone who wants to stop using drugs or drinking alcohol. Group therapy sessions typically focus on one topic each week or month so that recovering addicts can discuss issues they face daily.
Drug and alcohol addiction can lead to a breakdown in life skills. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction. Life skills training at Sanford Behavioral Health Headwaters ACT in Bemidji, MN teaches patients skills such as time management, budgeting, and social abilities to improve their quality of life and prevent relapse.
An addict’s life skills are maladaptive, meaning they are counterproductive. An addict may have learned poor time management skills growing up, have a hard time budgeting money, or be socially awkward. An addict’s poor life skills can lead to relapse and the inability to achieve long-term sobriety. Life skills training teaches patients effective coping mechanisms, which can help them live a clean and sober life.
