    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

    Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. Psychoactive substances are those that affect brain function. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. The overuse of psychoactive substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence. It also affects the social life and relationships of the affected individual. Substance abuse is treatable.

    The duration of treatment at SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program in Fall River can require weeks or even months depending on the severity of the condition as there is a risk of relapse. Treatment options include medications, counseling sessions, various types of behavioral therapy, and group therapy in different combinations.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

    Addiction to prescription opioid painkillers like oxycodone and hydrocodone, and illicit opioids such as heroin, leads to potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms when discontinued. Opioid addiction treatment typically involves an inpatient stay at facilities like SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program to make sure they get through withdrawal safely. Treatment also includes comprehensive mental health counseling.

    Levels of Care Offered

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

    Drug Detox

    One of the first things an addict should do when entering treatment is to abstain from using illicit drugs completely. Depending on the length of time that the person has been using, the addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. Fortunately, detox doesn’t have to be done alone, and withdrawal symptoms can be managed medically in an inpatient or outpatient setting. While detox may be uncomfortable, it is not life-threatening. Detoxification allows the addict to rid the body of all traces of drugs or alcohol and gives the addict a clean slate for their recovery.

    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.

    Treatment is just a first step in sustaining sobriety. After rehabilitation, counseling for aftercare helps the person adapt to a life without drugs. A sober living facility in Fall River, job therapy, or educational assistance may be included in this service, managed by SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program. This is when a preventive strategy for relapse starts to take shape.

    SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program‘s Therapies & Programs

    Individual Therapy

    In addiction recovery at SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program, therapy plays a significant role. This helps patients get to the root of their addiction and discover how the problems that contributed to their use can be handled better. Therapy can be performed in a group and one on one settings. The patient interacts with the therapist in a one-on-one atmosphere during individual therapy. This encourages them to reflect on the underlying addiction problems and develop ways to avoid potential future abuse.

    Family Counseling + Treatment

    Addiction and alcoholism affect the entire family. For this reason, family therapy is vital to a person’s recovery from addiction. In contrast to couples counseling, family therapy at SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program may include siblings, children, parents, and other significant people in the recovering person’s life. Family support is one of the most important pillars of recovery.

    In group therapy, the patient undergoes sessions with other patients at SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program who are dealing with similar problems. The members of the group interact with each other and talk freely about their issues at scheduled sessions. Group therapy reduces the feeling of loneliness and improves the coping skills of the patients. You are not alone in Fall River, Massachusetts.

    Many people turn to drugs and alcohol as a way of processing trauma that has affected them in the past. Trauma can include abuse, neglect, the loss of a loved one and other unpleasant incidents. Trauma therapy at SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program helps patients process trauma. It gives them the tools to deal with it in a healthier manner.

    Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is a type of cognitive therapy. It is based on the principle that irrational thoughts are responsible for the emotional and behavioral changes in addiction. So, the therapy starts with identifying the underlying irrational thoughts. These thoughts are then challenged and opposed logically and then replaced with positive thoughts. It also helps to change unwanted behavior with techniques such as meditation.

    By imparting positive thoughts and emotions, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) makes the individual self-reliant with a capacity to handle the emotional and behavioral issues in future by themselves without professional help. This self-dependence benefits the patients and prevent relapses.

    The recovery technique used by Alcoholics Anonymous is the 12 step program, but it can relate to any form of addiction. The 12 steps that addicts must take on the road to recovery are explained. Measures include acknowledging that you have a problem and agreeing to turn around your life. The curriculum, instructed by SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program, also requires a belief in a greater power and making amends to others.

    Contingency Management (CM), also called motivational incentives, is a type of pure behavioral therapy. It’s based on the idea that behavior is shaped, motivated, or controlled by its outcomes. CM is a clinical application at SSTAR - Alcoholism/ Drug Detox Program of operant conditioning, which helps clients eliminate unwanted behaviors by the use of positive and negative reinforcement.
