Substance abuse is a severe problem that affects many people in Columbus, NE. It is characterized by the excessive and inappropriate use of drugs, including alcohol, medications, and illicit drugs. Substance abuse can lead to physical or psychological dependence and affect social life and relationships. Treatment options include medications, counseling sessions, behavioral therapy, and group therapy. If you are suffering from substance abuse, contact for the latest treatments available.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Columbus, NE

Opioid addiction is when someone becomes addicted to opioids. This can happen quickly due to any opioid use. Opioid withdrawal can be uncomfortable and lead the user to continue using even if they want to quit. It’s best to receive inpatient treatment for detoxification.

Even if a person doesn’t need inpatient treatment, it’s recommended to start rehabilitation or at least some kind of outpatient treatment. This is because the withdrawal symptoms from opioids can be uncomfortable and unpleasant, to the point that a person could end up using again or worse.

Detoxification should be done to break the physical addiction of opioids. This can be done with opioid replacement therapy, medication-assisted therapy, or a more traditional detoxification program. Intensive outpatient treatment is a form of addiction care that allows patients to continue living at home while undergoing treatment. This type of care is appropriate for patients who have been treated in residential treatment programs. Intensive outpatient programs include regular visits to the facility providing therapy, and patients gradually return to their routine life. IOP benefits most when patients have a supportive family member or friend to help them recover.

The first step to getting into an intensive outpatient program is to attend a detoxification facility. Detoxification facilities are designed to remove substances from the body safely. The patient will attend sessions designed to help them understand their addiction and its impact on their lives. While in an intensive outpatient program, therapy sessions are scheduled three to five times per week, with the patient attending no more than two sessions in one day.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment at Seekers of Serenity Place

Dual Diagnosis therapy is considered more successful than traditional rehab methods because it treats the addiction and the underlying mental health disorder simultaneously. This comprehensive approach gives Columbus, NE patients the best chance for long-term recovery. If the patient does not receive treatment for both conditions, they are more likely to relapse.

Levels of Care

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

Detox is the process by which toxins are removed from the body. In substance abuse, detox refers to the process of getting rid of the drugs that are already there in the system once the patient stops its further intake. Detox is the initial step in the recovery process. The physiological dependence on the drug over a period can lead to withdrawal symptoms.

Depending on the severity of the symptoms, the detox process is managed either medically or clinically. While Medically assisted detox relies on the usage of specific medicines, clinal or social detox relies on providing emotional and psychological support to the patient.

Inpatient facilities offer a complete rehab program where the patient stays for an extended period. This allows the staff to monitor the patient on a round-the-clock basis and provide medical assistance if needed.

A significant benefit of inpatient rehab is that it allows for a safe environment for treatment. The patient doesn’t have access to drugs or alcohol, and they’re surrounded by people that want them to succeed and change their lives. Treatment starts with detox and behavioral therapy, followed by group therapy and family involvement.

Outpatient treatment consists of counseling and therapy sessions. The outpatient treatment process begins with the addict’s initial detox period, lasting about ten days. Outpatient treatment is used for those who are at moderate risk for “slipping back” into the addiction. It is also used for those who are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal, can handle social pressure, have a stable living environment, and have a good support system.

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 is often overlooked in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. However, it’s an essential part and should be considered when planning a course of rehab.

Aftercare is a term that’s used to refer to any sort of continuing care offered for a drug addict who has voluntarily entered a rehabilitation program. This type of care can be provided in several settings, including outpatient therapy sessions after the addict has completed an inpatient program. There are also 12-step support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, which can provide additional help for addicts trying to stay sober.

Aftercare is vital because addicts often face many challenges as they attempt to recover from drug addiction or alcoholism. Because of the powerful nature of these addictions, those who struggle with a drug or alcohol problem will likely have to face the craving for their substance of choice for the rest of their lives. Recovering can be a lonely and frustrating endeavor, especially without the support of others who are going through similar situations.

It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work.

This type of therapy involves the use of a variety of therapeutic techniques to help addicts recover from past traumas that might have triggered their substance abuse. During these sessions, therapists will work with the addict to address painful memories and learn how to cope effectively with stressors as they arise.

During these types of sessions, therapists will typically focus on three main goals:

  1. Identifying and expressing painful emotions associated with past traumas.
  2. Reducing the effects of stress on an addict’s life by developing more effective coping mechanisms.
  3. Developing healthy ways of thinking about stressful situations that can help addicts avoid substance abuse issues in the future.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an approach and method in psychotherapy. Seekers of Serenity Place asks people to investigate how their thoughts, including habitual, harmful, and inaccurate ways of thinking, affect behaviors. CBT is based on the idea that rigid, inflexible ways of thinking cause people to have a limited ability to cope with stress, which leads to emotional distress.

Likewise, CBT helps people identify maladaptive behaviors and replace them with more positive behaviors. It makes you look at the way you perceive something and ask: Is this a realistic belief? CBT asks people to look at the role of behaviors and emotional responses and how they may be distressing in one’s life. The goal of CBT is to change the way people think and behave to achieve a more balanced, healthier lifestyle.

Moreover, CBT has been shown to reduce some types of anxiety disorders, depression, and symptoms related to thoughts or actions that are considered harmful.

The services are offered at varying levels of intensity, specific to the needs and requirements of each patient.

  • Provides guidance and education about how to maintain a nutritious diet so they can stay healthy during recovery
