    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    Drug Rehabilitation

    Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. 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.

    Alcoholism Treatment

    Alcoholism is a disease characterized by the continued use of alcohol despite negative consequences, such as social and work problems, or diseases such as cirrhosis of the liver. Alcoholism can be treated using a variety of services, such as therapy and medication.

    Alcoholism treatment is beneficial for:

    • People who are having difficulty overcoming alcohol addiction on their own.
    • People who are at risk for dangerous health conditions due to withdrawal.
    • People who have had multiple failed attempts at alcohol addiction recovery without medical assistance.
    • An intervention may be necessary if the person with alcoholism is unwilling to attend addiction treatment on their own.

    Treatment services vary from person to person, so it is important to contact an addiction treatment service provider for more information. Treatment can be beneficial to those who are motivated to overcome addiction, have medical support, and have a strong support system.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Biddeford, ME

    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.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    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.

Many of these facilities are equipped to provide detoxification, treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, and aftercare programs. The patient typically spends 28 to 30 days at the facility and will receive extensive drug counseling.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    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.

    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

    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 Southern Maine Healthcare - Medical Center Drive.

    Individual Therapy

    At Southern Maine Healthcare - Medical Center Drive 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.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy sessions are typically used to help couples in recovery from drug addiction work through their issues. These types of sessions can be beneficial for many reasons, including the fact that they add a layer of accountability when both partners in a couple are recovering from addiction.

    Therapy can also provide addicts with another effective way to cope with stress and avoid relapse during difficult situations. This type of therapy can help improve communication with their partners, which can strengthen the relationship and prevent future problems that might lead to relapse.

    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.

    Group Counseling

    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.

    Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)

    The goal of nicotine replacement therapy is to provide a safe alternative for people trying to quit smoking. It does this by giving small doses of nicotine that help manage cravings while breaking habits associated with cigarettes.

    Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRTC) uses products like skin patches and gum that deliver low-dose nicotine, which prevents cravings in those quitting. This makes it easier for them to make a gradual transition from smoker to non-smoker.

    Trauma Therapy

    Trauma therapy allows people to face and learn from past traumas.

    Many people suffer childhood traumas that lead to adult addiction. During treatment at Southern Maine Healthcare - Medical Center Drive [/type], you can move forward in your recovery and reclaim your sober future! Trauma is a common cause of psychological disorders like Addiction Disorder. It’s common in Addictive Disorders patients because traumatized people have strong emotions or thoughts that lead to addictive behaviors.

    Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)

    Nutrition therapy has been used to help drug addicts for decades. Many early reports on addiction treatment indicate that some patients recovered from the “satisfying power of food”. For years, this phenomenon has been utilized as a treatment modality in eating disorders for adults, adolescents, and children.

    Specific nutrients have been identified that influence neurotransmitters associated with reward pathways of the brain. Studies have shown that carbohydrate loading with complex carbohydrates to elevate serotonin levels was effective in treating bulimia nervosa. This approach prompted researchers to explore the use of this type of nutritional intervention in other disorders.

    Life Skills

    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 Southern Maine Healthcare - Medical Center Drive in Biddeford, ME 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.

    Creative Arts

    Creative arts therapy is an expressive process that helps people in recovery explore feelings and emotions. While the goal isn’t always to create a final product, it’s therapeutic for many patients. They can express themselves by journaling or other forms of creative expression. Activities include sketching, painting, sculpting, etcetera. All help them handle stress and anxiety better than before their addiction (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. This benefit makes this form of treatment popular among addicts who don’t want prescription drugs but need something more substantial than talk sessions with counselors.

    Experiential Therapy at Southern Maine Healthcare - Medical Center Drive

    Experiential Therapy is a different way of thinking about addiction treatment. It uses physical activities to help work through troubling emotions, memories, and trauma that are sources of psychological issues like addiction.

    Experiential Therapy can be an effective option for those who have struggled with past traumas or challenges associated with life decisions such as drug use. The non-traditional approach helps people deal more effectively with these struggles. It also allows them 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.
