    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

    Rehab centers in Georgia exist to help individuals bounce back from substance abuse. Drug addiction refers to the use of illegal drugs and improper use of prescription drugs. Substance abuse includes all problems that stem out from using psychoactive substances. Centers like Unison Behavioral Health - Saint Illa Center are here to help.

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Intervention, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Drug Detox

    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.

    Inpatient Rehab in Waycross, GA

    Inpatient treatment takes place when a patient checks into a rehab facility. Patients at Unison Behavioral Health - Saint Illa Center receive round the clock care that includes detoxing and therapy. Although outpatient treatments are available, inpatient care is recommended as the first step in rehabilitation. The intensive and comprehensive treatment sets patients on a path for drug free living.

    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.

    Not everyone who struggles with addiction in Georgia is ready to go into a treatment program. For these individuals, intervention services may help. Friends and family of the individual can call and set up an intervention. We have a professional come and lead the discussion.

    Aftercare support refers to the follow-up care provided after the initial rehab program. The quality of aftercare support plays an important role in preventing relapses and sustains recovery.

    The methods used to care for each individual at Unison Behavioral Health - Saint Illa Center.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy refers to one-on-one psychotherapy between a patient and their Unison Behavioral Health - Saint Illa Center therapist. Individual therapy seeks to help identify the issues that drive and contribute to a client’s addiction or alcoholism. Another goal of individual counseling is to assist the client to learn how to manage their lives without alcohol or drugs.

    Family Counseling + Therapy

    Addiction is a family disease. Family therapy is a common tool that is used during inpatient treatment. While living with active addiction in Waycross, Georgia, it is impossible for family members not to be affected. In order to have the greatest chances for long term sobriety, healing any family trauma and dysfunctional communications is important. Family therapy aims to heal and rebalance unhealthy roles and habits.

    Group therapy occurs in a group setting as opposed to a one on one setting. It benefits patients by providing a feeling of support and letting them know they are not alone. Patients at Unison Behavioral Health - Saint Illa Center also learn to build trust and understanding and gain perspective through discussions.

    After experiencing trauma, it’s crucial to look for a facility that can provide trauma therapy. This approach zeroes in on the traumatic incidents that a patient has encountered in the past, recent or not. It’s been widely known that trauma can make an individual resort to alcohol or other substances to mask their troubles and pain. Trauma can originate from domestic violence, sexual abuse, an early encounter with death, sexual assault, and many more. The goal of trauma therapy at Unison Behavioral Health - Saint Illa Center in Waycross, GA is to help the patient see beyond the trauma and move forward. Mental health professionals will facilitate the patient’s journey and see to it that he or she is no longer a victim of his or her traumatic experiences and has wholly regained his or her personal power.

    Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy sees a person suffering from substance addiction to have illogical reasoning, counterproductive actions, and does not see things clearly. REBT at Unison Behavioral Health - Saint Illa Center in Waycross, GA deals with cognition, images, and behavior extensively to rectify the client’s bad habits. The process calls for practice, reiteration, and bolstering the new way of thinking being introduced to the patient.

It is a relatively simple set of steps that are done continuously in order to move through life with awareness, accountability and honesty. 12-Step programs are available in most every city in the Unites States.
