    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Opioid addiction treatment should be done in a medically supervised drug rehab. Opioid addiction treatment will include detoxification and drug rehab counseling to help both the user and their loved ones learn how to live a successful sober lifestyle. Methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are three medications that can help treat opioid addiction. Individual drug rehab counseling sessions can be helpful to discuss any questions or concerns with the drug treatment program.

    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.

    Usually, dual diagnosis sufferers are prescribed a combination of treatments for each condition. The most common therapies are psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, spiritual counseling, 12-step programs, and medication management.

    Psychiatric conditions are an obstacle to recovery because they can create roadblocks to a healthy lifestyle. Drugs and alcohol may be used as a means of self-medication, which can have dangerous consequences. Over time, addicts build up a tolerance and suffer withdrawal symptoms when drug use is stopped.

    With the proper treatment, dual diagnosis sufferers can overcome their conditions and achieve lasting sobriety.

    Levels of Care Offered at Silver Ridge

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

    Detoxification is the first step in drug addiction treatment. A controlled environment where symptoms can be managed with medication and close observation is provided by drug detoxification. Detoxification is an essential step in the recovery process, but it is also one of the most dangerous. Due to the potential danger, it’s critical to understand what detoxification is and how to complete it safely.

    A detox program helps the person physically withdraw from drugs and helps them track their progress. So, suppose the person isn’t ready for sobriety (or relapses). In that case, the treatment professionals can catch it early and help re-orient them towards recovery.

    Inpatient treatment is an option that provides addicts with a supportive environment in which they can stop using. This type of intensive care and supervision is appropriate for those who were unable to quit on their own or need more structure than they could get from outpatient treatment, such as the addict most in need of this level of care.

    The goal of inpatient rehab is for the addict to stay focused on sobriety and remain free of mood altering substances. Inpatient treatment programs usually offer the following: detox, therapy groups, one-on-one counseling, medication management and aftercare planning.

    Therapies & Programs

    Individual therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. It allows the patients to go deep into their core issues and discover how to handle those problems better. Therapy can be conducted in individual sessions as well as group settings. In individual therapy for addiction, the patient meets with their therapist one-on-one to focus on the underlying issues. This allows patients to open up and discuss personal topics they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting. This type of therapy can help develop solutions specific to each patient, which helps speed up the recovery process.

    Couples therapy is beneficial for couples in which at least one partner has a substance use disorder. This type of therapy can help partners improve communication skills, which is an important factor in a healthy relationship. It can also help partners better understand one another so they have a greater understanding of how the other partner may be feeling.

    Benefits of couples therapy include:

    • Improvement in communication skills
    • Increased understanding of the dynamics within a relationship
    • Increased sense of support and trust in the relationship
    • Better teamwork between partners/increased willingness to listen and work together
    • Enhanced tolerance of each other’s shortcomings
    • Improved ability to have open, honest communication with each other

    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. When a drug addict decides that they want to try and get sober, it takes the support of every person they love to succeed. It can be incredibly difficult for loved ones to watch an addict go through the pain and suffering of withdrawal, but by being there with them and supporting them, they can help to make sure that the addiction never returns.

    One of the most important parts of family therapy is the relapse prevention plan. During treatment, therapists and doctors will often sit down with the addict and their family to develop a plan in case the addict ever feels like they want to use again. This plan should involve steps the addict and family can take together to prevent them from relapsing in the future. An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse because they can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track before it becomes too much of a problem.

    Group therapy helps prevent addicts from feeling isolated or unique in their situation by offering a sense of comfort and fellowship. It also creates a forum for addicts to build their support systems and learn from each other. The group therapy sessions at Silver Ridge occur in a group setting rather than one-on-one to create a safer, controlled environment where addicts feel comfortable.

    Trauma therapy helps people dealing with addiction by allowing them to confront the traumas of their past and move past them. It is important to note that trauma therapy should not be confused with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) Rather, it is used to treat the effects of trauma, which are often at the root of addiction.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a common therapeutic approach to help drug addicts. It teaches addicts new ways of thinking and behaving so that they can avoid relapse. There are several forms of CBT used in drug rehabilitation centers.

    Cognitive Restructuring helps addicts identify faulty, negative thinking so that they can work together with the therapist to find healthier ways of thinking, resulting in better decision-making.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Addiction uses the principles of CBT to help treat addiction. It focuses on specific aspects of each person’s thinking, feeling, physiology, and behavior. It aims to identify specific problems in these areas and create a personalized treatment strategy.

    The best drug treatment centers offer various services to help addicts learn how to live without drugs. Since addiction is a chronic physical and mental illness, addicts need to learn as many life skills as possible to help them stay clean and sober.

    Many drug treatment centers like Silver Ridge offer life skills activities as part of their addiction recovery programs. Examples include cooking classes, employment training, resume writing seminars, parenting classes, and computer training. When addicts have various life skills to lean on, they’re better equipped to put their addiction behind them for good.

    The primary goal of life skills activities at drug treatment centers like Silver Ridge is to help addicts recover from addiction and learn how to live a useful, productive life. Life skills activities help addicts find employment, take care of their families, and give back to the community. After learning about these various life skills, addicts are better prepared to return to society and lead happy healthy lives.

    Drug addiction can be a difficult thing to overcome, but with the help of nutrition therapy, it can become a little bit easier. Nutrition therapy provides addicts with the nutrients they need to recover both physically and mentally. This type of therapy also helps addicts to have more energy and strength to fight cravings. Most importantly, good nutrition helps to keep addicts strong against the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

    Nicotine replacement therapies are effective because they provide you with the nicotine you are addicted to without inhaling carcinogens from cigarettes. Some types of NRT include nicotine gum, nicotine patches (transdermal systems), nasal spray, and lozenges. The benefits of using NRT can include reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer.

    Patient Experience

    Creative Arts

    Creative arts therapy is an expressive process that helps people heal. Even if the goal isn’t always to create a finished product, it’s therapeutic for many. They can express themselves through journaling or other creative outlets like sketching, painting, sculpting, etc. This helps them cope with stress and anxiety better than before (and even when they were). The activity improves communication skills and the ability to process traumatic events from one’s past, often triggered during periods of withdrawal/relapse.

    Experiential Therapy at Silver Ridge

    Experiential Therapy is a new approach to addiction treatment. Addiction-related psychological issues like depression and anxiety are addressed through physical activities.

    Experiential Therapy can help those who have struggled with past traumas or life decisions like drug use. It allows people to gain new perspectives on their behavior patterns by recreating experiences in healthy ways rather than continuing old habits that may no longer serve them well.

    Equine Therapy at Silver Ridge in North Carolina

    When you sign up for equine therapy, also called EAT or equine-assisted therapy, at our facility in Silver Ridge, Connecticut, these majestic creatures are groomed and taken care of during your stay. This gives those recovering from addiction the opportunity to process everything that has happened throughout their lives without having to face it head-on like they would with traditional therapies.

    The horses will play an essential role in treatment. Instead of facing situations head-on as is done with other types of psychotherapy, patients can use this time to interact with the animals around them while processing what’s going through their minds by helping take care of them. Horses are naturally non-judgmental, and whether or not the patients can see it, they will react to their energy.
