    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.

    Dual-Diagnosis Treatment at Third Way Center - Pontiac

    Dual Diagnosis is a specific relationship between two or more disorders that have the same symptoms and can sometimes be treated together. This is used in the treatment planning process when dealing with drug addicts. Dual diagnosis can be viewed as a chronic medical condition that has comorbid psychiatric disorders.

    Although addiction and a mental illness may have separate symptoms that are not easy to detect, they often go hand in hand. Many times, drug abuse is a direct result of the mental illness. In other words, treating the addiction will not resolve all of your issues. Unless you also treat the underlying mental illness, you will not be successful in achieving sobriety.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Denver, CO Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual Therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. Therapists work with patients to identify the root of their addiction and figure out how to better handle the issues that led to them using drugs. Individual Therapy is the one-on-one session where people meet with their therapist. Individual therapy provides a safe space for people to open up and discuss personal and sensitive topics which they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy at Third Way Center - Pontiac focuses on addiction treatment for the addict and their spouse. The addict’s family, not just the addict, can benefit from this form of therapy. Couples therapy addresses communication problems, trust issues, lack of intimacy, and abuse in intimate relationships. Couples therapy can help rebuild trust between partners, which increases the chances for successful treatment and sustained recovery.

    Intimate relationships can be damaged during addiction, and professional help may be necessary to rebuild the often destroyed trust and love. Couples therapy at Third Way Center - Pontiac helps couples improve communication and rebuild trust. Either or both partners will be helped by this treatment administered by professionals. This treatment can also help one or both partners if addiction is the problem.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy will also help families realize that the addiction is not their fault. For many years, people blamed themselves for an addict’s behavior and felt that they had done something wrong. This is not the case. Addiction is a disease, and it can strike anyone, even if their life seems fine from the outside. It can bring a lot of shame to a family when they have an addict in their midst, but if everyone is open and honest with each other, then they can help everyone stay in recovery.

    Group Therapy is utilized by drug treatment centers like Third Way Center - Pontiac to provide the recovering drug addict with a platform to talk about their feelings and experiences. It also provides for an opportunity to learn from other addicts who have successfully overcome their addiction.

    Group Therapy is employed in lectures, seminars, or discussion groups (the latter two are typically conducted as “therapy groups”). It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work (though it does not exclude others with lived experience).

    Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions. Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them.

    Nutrition therapy has been used to help drug addicts for decades. Many early reports on addiction treatment indicate that some patients recovered from the “satisfying power of food”. For years, this phenomenon has been utilized as a treatment modality in eating disorders for adults, adolescents, and children. Specific nutrients have been identified that influence neurotransmitters associated with reward pathways of the brain.

    Studies have shown that carbohydrate loading with complex carbohydrates to elevate serotonin levels was effective in treating bulimia nervosa. This approach prompted researchers to explore the use of this type of nutritional intervention in other disorders.
