    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.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    Dual Diagnosis refers to someone who is both dealing with addiction and another mental health issue.

    There are different kinds of Dual Diagnosis: A person who simultaneously experiences both a mental illness and an addiction disorder. Or, a person who experiences one or more coexisting (simultaneous) mental health conditions in addition to a primary substance use disorder.

    • Personality Disorders (Borderline, Narcissistic)
    • Mood Disorders (Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety Disorder)

    This Facility offers a variety of treatment.

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

    West Valley City, UT Outpatient Program

    Outpatient treatment programs provide drug and alcohol addiction treatment through individual sessions with a counselor, group therapy, 12-step meetings, and other activities to help individuals gain sober living skills. Most programs are designed for those individuals who have completed a medically supervised detoxification program and provide opportunities for clients to begin the process of early recovery.

    Outpatient programs also offer a level of medical support as needed and psychological backing through therapy. Clients are encouraged to live at home, though there may be some flexibility regarding this requirement based on the circumstances and needs of each patient.

    Outpatient treatment is perhaps the most common type of dual diagnosis program available. It does not pose a significant financial burden on patients. However, it is essential to note that outpatient treatment does not provide the support and supervision given in residential programs. Some addicts may need this level of support to maintain their sobriety.

    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.

    People who have completed a rehab program often need continued support from the addiction treatment team in order to remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol. Aftercare can be beneficial for personal, social, and emotional growth.

    Common aftercare options include:

    • Individual Therapy – this type of addiction counseling is available on a one-on-one basis. This can be beneficial for people with a high degree of emotional turmoil and a strong desire to overcome addiction.
    • Group Therapy – this type of addiction counseling is available in a group setting. This type of treatment can be beneficial for people who are unable to attend regular therapy appointments due to other responsibilities.
    • Family Therapy – this type of addiction counseling is available to the family members of addicts. This can be beneficial for people who are unable to fully comprehend what their loved ones are experiencing due to addiction.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at VA Salt Lake City Health Care System - Western Salt Lake Community Clinic.

    Individual Therapy

    Therapy sessions focused on the individual addict can provide much-needed guidance as they work toward overcoming their addiction. These types of sessions typically involve guidance from a therapist, who will help addicts identify and process their feelings and cravings.

    During these sessions, addicts may develop plans for coping with the triggers that typically lead to relapse and learn how to avoid those triggers during their recovery process.

    Couples Therapy

    If you are looking for drug recovery, couples therapy can be a great option. This type of therapy can help rebuild trust and joy in relationships that may have been damaged by addiction. It can also help reduce the dysfunctional behavior in a relationship that may trigger addiction. A patient’s partner will be involved in the process. They can also benefit from therapy, especially if they are trying to live with an addict.

    Family Counseling + Therapy

    The main goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can occur without judgment, hostility, or blame that often occurs within a family.

    Family therapy is a type of group problem-solving that aims to improve communication and relationships between the patient, their family, and sometimes friends. The therapist is with the family as they learn to communicate with each other 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. The patient also learns how to deal with their addiction and maintain sobriety while interacting with the family.

    Different types of addiction treatment services are available. Within this article, group therapy is of interest due to its high success rate compared to individual therapy. Group therapy settings are beneficial because they allow recovering addicts to build a strong support network.

    Benefits of group therapy are:

    • Reduces feelings of isolation
    • Immediate access to social support in the form of fellow addicts in recovery
    • Lowers risk of relapse
    • Increases rate of sobriety
    • Builds coping skills that can be applied to everyday life

    Trauma Therapy is a form of therapy that involves working with a patient to help them process and understand the past trauma(s) in their life. The idea behind it is that while some people can experience traumatic events and not have lasting psychiatric symptoms, many others will. In these cases, memories of the event get hidden from consciousness but continue to influence how the person processes and copes with things in their life. They may avoid situations that resemble what happened or become suddenly angry or irritated to a situation that reminds them of a past event.

    With the help of a therapist, people can go back over memories and experiences. This helps them understand why they are having problems coping with certain situations and how they can change how they think and react to things. This therapy is typically done using techniques such as visualization, discussion, and writing down thoughts and feelings.

    Trauma therapists will work with clients to help them understand their past and present relationships. Many times, patients may believe that something is inherently wrong with them or that they are unworthy of love. A therapist aims to correct these negative feelings and behaviors by helping the person realize that their actions do not reflect who they truly are.

    One of the main goals of trauma therapy is to help clients express their emotions and talk about what they are feeling. This benefits both to increase awareness of how certain events have impacted them in the past and enables patients to realize that they can make changes in their lives.

    Good nutrition can be difficult for people recovering from addiction because they may not feel like eating while they are experiencing the physical and emotional side effects of detoxing.

    Nutrition therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

    • Helps individuals to understand which foods promote good health and support recovery that will assist them during detox
    • Provides guidance and education in West Valley City, Utah about how to maintain a nutritious diet so they can stay healthy during recovery
    • Improves their overall health and well-being, which can reduce the severity of substance withdrawal symptoms.

    Nicotine replacement therapies are effective because they provide you with the nicotine you are addicted to without inhaling carcinogens from cigarettes. Some types of NRT include nicotine gum, nicotine patches (transdermal systems), nasal spray, and lozenges. The benefits of using NRT can include reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer.
