Conditions and Issues Treated

Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment at Southwest Counseling - Recovery Center

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 Rock Springs, WY

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 Southwest Counseling - Recovery Center

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 Rock Springs, WY 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 Detox, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Residential, Sober-Living / Half-Way, 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.

Sober living homes are transitional houses for recovering addicts who need more structure than they would receive in an aftercare program. Specific rules and regulations are enforced in these homes, which are beneficial for people who need a greater degree of structure than other types of treatment.

Sober living home options include:

  • Live-in managers – might be beneficial to people who do not have a support system in place at home, or who experience high levels of stress between work and home life.
  • House managers – House managers are beneficial for people who do not have a strong social network to rely on, or who are concerned about relapse in their daily lives.
  • House parents – House parents are beneficial to people who reside in areas without a strong aftercare program for support.

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.

Therapies & Programs

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.

This type of therapy is typically used in conjunction with other types of addiction treatment services. By identifying and dealing with the root cause of addiction, most addicts can overcome their cravings and prevent relapse once they leave rehab.

Many different types of addiction treatment services exist to help addicts safely get sober, but it’s important for recovering individuals to find a therapist or support group that will help them address the root cause of their addiction.
