    Drug Rehabilitation

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Mather, CA

Opioid addicts often take opioids when they experience a painful injury – that’s how the cycle starts! When someone begins taking their medication differently than prescribed or takes an excessive amount of drugs, it means they’re hooked on drugs and in danger of overdosing.

    The most successful way to beat this is through detoxing from these types treatments at VA Northern California Health Care System - Sacramento VA Medical Center in . Most facilities start by using medical support during the process while providing counseling services; rehabilitation comes later on after treatment has been completed successfully.

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

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Going to an inpatient rehab facility means living there while all aspects of addiction or co-occurring disorder get addressed. The treatment involves medical supervision, therapy, and future planning.

    This type of rehabilitation provides a drug-free environment for people who struggle with chronic/long-term addiction without having access to drugs outside the center (or their own home). It takes away any distractions because they live there 24 hours per day. If someone is trying to break out old habits, which could lead them back into substance abuse, things like jobs or school can be put on hold until after they complete their stay to focus solely on recovery.

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient programs at VA Northern California Health Care System - Sacramento VA Medical Center, the Mather resident can live with their family while continuing with their job or studies. Treatment includes educating the patient on drug abuse, medications, and counseling sessions at the individual or group level. Outpatient treatment plans cover diagnosis, detoxification, management, and counseling. They are a popular option for those who have graduated from inpatient facilities.

    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.

    Without aftercare support, addicts can easily relapse back into addiction. It is crucial to integrate the addict back into society. Aftercare support should take place after outpatient treatment has ended.

    There are a few different types of aftercare support that patients can seek after completing an inpatient treatment program:

    • 12 Step Self-help groups (AA, NA)
    • Therapeutic communities,
    • Long-term, structured sober living arrangements
    • Halfway houses (residential treatment centers)

    Many different support groups exist for addicts to seek help after treatment. Some are more effective than others, depending on the person’s addiction, background, and other factors.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Mather, CA Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy is a form of counseling where you meet with a trained professional one-on-one. Meeting with a therapist in this setting allows for a personal and trusting relationship to be built. This allows the patient to open up about sensitive or private issues they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group. Individual therapy helps identify the root causes of your addiction, which can help prevent relapse.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy is often done alongside drug treatment to help addicts stay sober. The goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can happen without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist will sit with the family so they can learn how to communicate differently and provide new tools for dealing with emotions so that people don’t want to drink or do drugs. It’s important for families to focus on relapse prevention plans during treatment so that if the addict feels like they want to use again, they’ll know what steps they need to take together to prevent it from happening again in the future.

    Group therapy sessions are another common addiction recovery service. These group sessions typically involve six to 12 addicts who meet regularly with a trained professional for support and guidance.

    During these sessions, the group shares their experiences with one another and provides feedback that can help each member avoid relapse or overcome specific obstacles they are facing in their recovery process. With this type of support and guidance, addicts can feel like they are part of a community that understands their struggles and will help them get through the hard times.

    Many people struggling with drug addiction have experienced some form of trauma in their lives. It is crucial that these individuals seek out professional help; otherwise, their drug abuse and addiction will likely continue.

    Therapists and counselors at drug treatment centers employ several treatment programs to help people struggling with drug addiction, including trauma therapy. Trauma therapy helps people dealing with addiction by allowing them to confront the traumas of their past and move past them.

    It is important to note that trauma therapy should not be confused with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Rather, it is used to treat the effects of trauma, which are often at the root of addiction.

    Medical nutrition therapy for addiction helps patients at VA Northern California Health Care System - Sacramento VA Medical Center avoid “trigger” foods. Someone who craves alcohol may be sugar addicted. Eating a balanced diet with adequate protein, vegetables, and fruit can help reduce drinking urges.

    MNT is a type of addiction treatment that teaches patients about healthy eating habits while counseling them. These sessions include meal planning, cooking demonstrations, shopping tips, grocery store tours, and food education.

    It’s not as simple as quitting drinking or using drugs and expecting the hard part to be over. Many addicts in recovery have discovered that they need to improve skills such as time management, organization, communication, socialization, and self-esteem. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction.

    Nicotine replacement therapy is a drug treatment that allows people to get the effects of nicotine without chewing or smoking. The therapy is often done with a patch, and doses of nicotine are reduced until nicotine is no longer needed. NRT helps smokers get nicotine into their system without resorting to smoking, and it has been shown to be an effective way to help people quit smoking. Coupling NRT with counseling and other means of support gives long-term smokers a better chance of removing their unhealthy habit.

    Patient Experience

    Learn what to expect with experiential treatments, setting, and amenities.

    Experiential Therapy at VA Northern California Health Care System - Sacramento VA Medical Center

    Drug addiction causes the formation of abnormal connections between neurons in the brain to form due to repeated exposure to drugs. These connections are responsible for addictive behaviors to drugs. Experiential therapy is done with patients individually and is different from traditional talk therapy. This therapy can help people revisit past traumas, heal, and move on in life in a more authentic way.

    Experiential therapy uses activities to recreate experiences that may have caused trauma or negative emotions. These activities include role-playing, arts and crafts, animal care, music, or rock climbing. The individual will gradually experience calmness and love and change their perception positively through this therapy. Other than drug addiction, experiential therapy can be helpful for behavioral or eating disorders.
