    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Substance abuse is the excessive use of any drug. This includes alcohol, medications, and illegal drugs. Substance abuse is treated with a combination of physical and mental treatments. Patients detox and follow up with therapies that target the underlying cause of the addiction. Substance abuse is a severe problem that can be successfully treated with a variety of therapies. STEP Med treatment uses a combination of therapies along with other resources to overcome substance abuse.

    Opioid addiction treatment should be done in a medically supervised drug rehab. While taking opioids, users will typically use other substances to enhance the effects of opioids or to reduce the adverse effects of opioid use. 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.

    Treatments such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are three medications that can help treat opioid addiction. These drugs work on the brain’s pleasure center and reduce cravings and the effects of illicit opioids such as heroin. These drugs can be either given orally or by injection. Individual drug rehab counseling sessions can be helpful to discuss any questions or concerns with the drug treatment program. This counseling will also help the user set goals for when they finish drug rehab.

    Opioid addiction recovery is a long process. Many of the changes to the brain caused by opioid use cannot be undone, but with time and the proper treatment, a person can return to normal function. After detox, treatment will include drug rehab counseling and entering a halfway house or sober living community. Aftercare is critical to long-term recovery, as it helps the user avoid relapsing and entering back into drug rehab.

    A person who struggles with addiction and a mental health condition suffers from a dual diagnosis. This means that they have two issues that must be treated. Taking care of one or the other is tough, and taking care of both cannot be done alone. A patient who receives dual diagnosis treatment in Texas will be given the best chance at becoming sober.

    An addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. 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. In an inpatient or outpatient setting, detox can be managed medically.

    “Outpatient treatment is ideal for those who have a lower intensity addiction. It’s also suitable for those with a supportive environment and those on a tight budget.

    Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. It may involve weekly sessions instead of daily. Peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be used and anti-addiction medication.

    Therapies & Programs

    The therapies usually include siblings, children, and parents who are involved in their daily lives. These sessions are vital because they address past issues that may have hampered an addict’s or alcoholic’s recovery and provide support at a crucial time!

    One of the most critical aspects of family therapy is helping addicts’ loved ones see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things a family can do when a loved one struggles with addiction or alcoholism.

    Group therapy is held in a safe, controlled setting where patients can feel comfortable sharing their struggles and gaining perspective through shared conversations. It takes place in a group rather than one on one to prevent feelings of isolation or being unique in their situation while creating an environment for addicts at STEP Med to develop fellowship, accountability, and support. Group therapy is an important tool in recovery that prevents cravings that prompt a return to active addiction.

    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.
