    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    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.

    Alcoholism Treatment in Mishawaka, IN

    Alcoholism is a medical condition in which the body becomes dependent on alcohol. Alcohol acts as a relaxant and affects the central nervous system, which controls all bodily functions. Alcohol abuse is the overuse of alcohol to the detriment of one’s health or social life.

    Even for an extended period, drinking too much does not necessarily mean that one has a problem with alcohol. However, the signs and symptoms of alcoholism often do not occur until the disease has progressed to a very advanced stage. Alcoholism is also known as alcohol use disorder or AUD. Alcoholism is a progressive disease, which means it gets worse over time if left untreated.

    Although many people can reduce the amount of alcohol they drink, many of those with alcoholism are unable to limit their drinking. Alcoholism can be fatal if left untreated over time. However, many different types of alcoholism treatment can help people recover.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Mishawaka, IN

    Opioid addiction starts when a person becomes addicted to legal or illegal opioids. The addiction can happen quickly, in just a matter of days. Opioid withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and lead the user to continue to use even if they want to quit. Stopping using an opioid requires medical observation. Sometimes inpatient treatment with a medically supervised detox is necessary for managing the withdrawal process while learning lasting tools for maintaining recovery. Medications may be used in some cases of opioid addiction.

    Opioid addiction is one of Indiana‘s most prominent forms of addiction. It’s treated by detoxifying the body so that the chemicals from the medications no longer impact them and by therapies to correct behavior and target the root of the problem.

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient treatment is considered the lower intensity level of addiction treatment. It’s ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. It may include weekly sessions instead of daily. It may include weekly sessions instead of daily. Peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be involved but at a lesser frequency than an intensive outpatient program. It is a good choice for someone who doesn’t need to go through a medically supervised detox and who has a supportive home environment. It requires motivation and dedication to commit to the program without constant monitoring.

    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.

    Aftercare support should take place after outpatient treatment has ended. There are a few different types of aftercare support that patients can seek. These include 12 Step, Self-help groups (AA, NA), Therapeutic communities, Long-term, structured sober living arrangements, and Halfway houses (residential treatment centers).

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Mishawaka, IN Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy involves one-on-one sessions between the patient and therapist. It provides patients with a safe environment to openly discuss personal and sensitive issues with the therapist. They find the therapist as someone they can trust. Individual therapy aims to identify the core issues that would have led the patient to substance abuse and address them effectively. The therapist can develop patient-specific customized solutions through individual therapy, which aids speedier recovery.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy works with clients and significant others in a professional capacity to improve relationship dynamics. This can be helpful for addicts who are trying to marry the idea of recovery into their work, family, social lives – any aspect that has to do with relationships.

    Through counseling sessions, addicts will have an opportunity to talk about their addiction with professional partners. These partners can offer feedback and advice on how to get sober while keeping healthy relationships intact. A good couples therapist will help addicts understand their part in an unhealthy relationship dynamic or find ways to deal with anger or resentment from significant others outside of the home.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy is a group problem-solving that aims to improve communication and relationships between the addict, their family, and sometimes friends. The main goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can occur without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist is with the family as they learn to communicate differently, especially with the addict when s/he is using. The family can learn to reduce their enabling behavior or rally together and support each other during tough times.

    An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse because they can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track before it becomes too much of a problem. Family therapy is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety. When a drug addict decides that they want to try and get sober, it takes the support of every person they love to succeed. It can be incredibly difficult for loved ones to watch an addict go through the pain and suffering of withdrawal, but by being there with them and supporting them, they can help to make sure that the addiction never returns.

    Groups typically involve meetings with other recovering addicts who can relate to one another’s experiences. They might meet in person or online and typically focus on the process of staying sober rather than overcoming a specific addiction.

    In these groups managed by VA Northern Indiana Health Care System - St. Joseph County VA Health Care Center, addicts can build a sense of community and develop strong emotional connections with others who understand what they are going through. These beneficial relationships can help addicts overcome their cravings and prevent relapse at any point during the recovery process.

    In general, trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. 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.

    There are many different types of trauma therapists, such as psychiatric nurses and counselors. Not everyone is a good candidate for this type of therapy; it is generally reserved for people who have recently experienced a traumatic event and struggle to get over it. It is often done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans.

    There is hope for people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the solution. CBT focuses on the underlying thoughts and behaviors that caused the addiction problem in the first place and may cause a relapse. This type of psychotherapy addresses negative feelings common in substance abuse disorders. It helps to change them by restructuring thought patterns. It’s about removing negative thoughts and providing long-term benefits while promoting self-awareness, self-control, and healthy ways to respond to negative thoughts. These sessions can be done by themselves or as part of combination therapy.

    Since addiction is a chronic physical and mental illness, addicts need to learn as many life skills as possible. Many drug treatment centers offer life skills activities as part of their addiction recovery programs. Examples include cooking classes, employment training, resume writing seminars, parenting classes, and computer training. Life skills activities help addicts find employment, take care of their families, and give back to the community.
