    Alcoholism, Mental Health and Substance Abuse, Opiod Addiction, Opioid Addiction, Substance Abuse

    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.

    Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

    Recovering from any type of substance abuse is a long process, but it is one of the most worthwhile and life changing events any addicted person will ever go through. This is a combination of detoxing the body, rehabilitation, and recovery. There is also therapy, aftercare, and support during the entire process.

    While substance abuse can take over a person’s life, it is something that can also be overcame by professionals at Thunderbird Treatment Center in Seattle, WA

    Alcoholism Treatment at Thunderbird Treatment Center

    Alcoholism is one of the most common forms of addiction. Abstinence is the recommended treatment approach. Patients detox and attend therapy sessions with Thunderbird Treatment Center professionals, to encourage non-addictive behaviors. This works to improve the patient’s health and mental outlook.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

    With so many people struggling with opioid addiction, opioid addiction treatment is more critical than ever before. Patients often take opioids when they face a painful injury. When someone begins taking opioids such as Vicodin or oxycodone differently than how the medications were prescribed, this points to opioid addiction.

    Stopping these types of medications abruptly is not safe. That is where opioid addiction treatment at Thunderbird Treatment Center in Seattle, WA comes in. Most opioid addiction treatment facilities start with detox and move to rehabilitation services while providing medical support during the process.

    Getting over an opioid addiction takes time and determination, but with the right support and resources, those struggling with opioid addiction can recover and move forward with their lives.

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient treatment is treatment that occurs when a patient is not checked into a rehab facility. The patient may show up for therapy sessions, go through detox and engage in other therapies to help them recover. However, they will do so while they live at home in Washington.

    Outpatient therapy provided by Thunderbird Treatment Center is usually recommended as a follow up to inpatient therapy. It helps patients adapt to their normal lives after treatment. In some cases, it can also be an alternative to inpatient treatment.

However, inpatient treatment is the best way to recover from addiction.

    Residential

    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.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual professional counseling or individual therapy refers to the one-on-one interaction between a patient and his or her counselor. Individual therapy allows for more privacy, one that group interactions can’t provide. Therefore, it becomes easier for a person to unload and become more open to his or her counselor.

They work together to overcome past issues, avoid triggers, and remain strong and supportive of each other.

    Group Counseling

    In group therapy, the patient undergoes sessions with other patients dealing with similar problems under the guidance of a trained counselor. The members of the group interact with each other and talk freely about their issues. The recovery of members of the group from the problems that they face gives the patients confidence that they can also overcome their addiction.

    Group therapy at Thunderbird Treatment Center reduces the feeling of loneliness and improves the coping skills of the patients. Group therapy provides patients with continuous feedback from other members. The group dynamics ensure that members start having some structure and routine in their lives.

    Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)

    NRT, also known as nicotine replacement therapy, allows someone to get the effects of nicotine without chewing or smoking. It is often done with a patch, allowing those who want to quit relying on nicotine to better manage their cravings. As the cravings get easier to manage, the doses of nicotine get reduced until nicotine is no longer needed.

    Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (REBT)

    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. The therapy starts with identifying the underlying irrational thoughts. These thoughts are then challenged and opposed logically and then replaced with positive thoughts.

    Trauma Therapy
