  • Conditions and Issues Treated

    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 The LifeHouse in Huntington 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.

    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 The LifeHouse 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 Detox, Drug Rehab, Inpatient, Residential, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    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.

    Inpatient programs are intensive regimes that require individuals suffering from serious addictions to admit themselves into a controlled environment. Inpatient programs in West Virginia generally span over 28 days to six months. The first step in an inpatient program is medically assisted detox. Doctors and addiction specialists at The LifeHouse monitor the individual’s vital signs as the drugs leave their system. Some inpatient rehab programs also provide counseling for family members to provide encouragement and emotional support. In inpatient programs, patients have access to 24-hour medical supervision.

    Sober living houses in West Virginia help the patient to smoothly transition from a formal treatment program to a normal life. They are also known as recovery residences or half-way houses. SLH like The LifeHouse provide the advantage of residing with a peer-group who had similar experiences.

    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.

    The LifeHouse‘s Therapies & Programs

    In addiction recovery at The LifeHouse, 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.

    In group therapy, the patient undergoes sessions with other patients at The LifeHouse 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 Huntington, West Virginia.

    Life skills pertain to the skill sets a person should possess to become successful in life. Examples are time management, budgeting, and social abilities. Life skills therapy highlights the fact that addiction recovery is more than just a person’s ability to go through their day-to-day without resorting to substance use in Huntington, WV once they leave the facility.

    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 The LifeHouse, also requires a belief in a greater power and making amends to others.
