    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. Overuse of these substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence.

    Substance abuse is treatable and the duration of treatment and most successful sobriety can require weeks or months of professional care at Scholze Center in Chattanooga.

    Opioid addiction treatment facilities like Scholze Center support people struggling with opioid dependency, which covers illegal and prescription opioids. People often abuse prescription opioids to get high instead of adhering to a medical provider’s directions. Addiction forces people to crave for opioids impulsively without factoring in the dangers these drugs bring to them.

    Most opioid addiction treatment plans include detoxification and subsequent medications to ease the process. However, that’s only the beginning. Behavioral therapies and counseling are also necessary to resolve the root cause of addiction. This overall approach decreases the likelihood of falling off the wagon. In some instances, therapies can be done at home.

    Addiction is often caused by an underlying issue. Mental illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or anxiety disorder could lie at the root. A dual diagnosis by Scholze Center aims to treat the addiction as well as the cause of the addiction. This ensures the patient will not fall back on old ways after treatment is complete.

    Levels of Care Offered

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

    Detox is the stage of recovery where the drugs or alcohol are fully removed from your body. As you stop using, your body metabolizes the last dose or drink and starts sending triggers to your brain to get more. These cues lead to cravings. If additional substances are not obtained you begin to go through withdrawal. Your body begins to reset chemical pathways and other metabolic processes begin which can be extremely uncomfortable.

    There are two different ways to detox, with medications and without. Depending on your level of addiction and what you are using, you may need medical supervision. For many drugs and alcohol, the acute phase of detox can be completed in a number of days. Cravings and certain longer-term withdrawal symptoms may remain for longer as your body completely rids itself of the drug and relearns how to function without it.

    Inpatient rehab means living at the Chattanooga, TN facility while all aspects of an addiction or co-occurring disorder get addressed. This helps limit the distractions and increase the focus on recovery. Typical inpatient rehab stays are approximately one month long.

    An Intensive Outpatient Program like what’s offered at Scholze Center, targets those who need intensive treatment but would rather get it in the comfort of their homes. The treatment programs vary in duration and intensity. They can be tailored to suit the patient’s needs.

    Outpatient treatment plans cover diagnosis, detoxification, management, and counseling. They are a popular option for those who have graduated from inpatient facilities. Services in Tennessee include medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and individual and group therapy.

    A partial hospitalization program offered by Scholze Center is appropriate for patients in and nearby Chattanooga, TN that present acute symptoms of addiction. It’s similar to intensive rehab but runs much shorter because the patients don’t need 24-hour monitoring. Partial hospitalizations generally have more freedom when it comes to family visits.

    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.

    Aftercare support plays an important role when sustaining a patient’s full recovery at Scholze Center. Patients also receive assistance in making living arrangements in halfway houses.
