    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.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    An Intensive Outpatient Program like what’s offered at The Link Halfway House, targets those who need intensive treatment but would rather get it in the comfort of their homes. The treatment programs vary in duration and intensity. They can be tailored to suit the patient’s needs.

    Aftercare Support

    Aftercare support involves the support given to a Norfolk, Nebraska patient after they complete treatment. It helps them adjust to normal life. It may include setting them up in a halfway house and enrolling them in programs like Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The Link Halfway House‘s patients may also be provided with career training to help them get back into the job force.

    Inpatient Care

    Inpatient treatment for addiction is generally not as scary as it might sound. It is a way to find recovery while being in a supportive and controlled environment. The duration of treatment at The Link Halfway House in Norfolk can be different based on each individual. Many can leave after 28 days; some may stay a few months, and others may stay six months or longer.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    Substance use disorder falls under two categories: Alcohol or Drug Abuse and Drug Dependence. An individual suffering from a substance use disorder and mental health disorders is said to have a co-occurring disorder or a dual disorder.

    Individuals with substance use disorders and mental health problems are said to suffer from a ‘dual diagnosis’. The most frequently identified mental health issues found in individuals with substance use disorders include anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and schizoaffective disorder.

    Outpatient

    When remaining at their job in Norfolk, or continuing their studies, the individual may live with their family while utilizing The Link Halfway House‘s outpatient services. Treatment requires counseling the patient at the individual level, in a group setting, about substance addiction, drugs, and therapy sessions.

    Residential Treatment

    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.

    12-Step Program Facilitation

    Alcoholics Anonymous is responsible for the development of the popular “12 Step Program”. Most substance treatment centers have their own 12 step program designed to help users achieve sobriety. Because of this, most treatment plans follow a similar pattern when broken down.

    The first three steps depend on the patient, so they are more specific and situational. The succeeding four steps center on practical issues brought on by substance abuse. Steps 8 and 9 deal with the social and emotional repercussions of addiction, encouraging patients to make amends to people they have wronged. These are followed by two steps revolving around the further exploration and reinforcement of Steps 1 to 9.

    The last step requires an individual to extend a helping hand to people who are still in the early stages of their recovery.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

    Negative feelings are common in substance abuse disorders. If not recognized, they can cause co-occurring disorders. CBT involves strategies that help to change the thinking and behavioral pattern. It can be administered as a monotherapy as well as a part of combination therapy.

    A type of cognitive-behavioral therapy is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. It is intended for those who are vulnerable to self-harm and suicidal thoughts. The Link Halfway House aims to help patients understand the connection between their feelings, emotions, and behaviors and provide them with the tools to make a difference in Norfolk, NE.
