Residential Treatment Programs
In order to successfully overcome drug or alcohol addiction, we have to understand what the causes of the addiction are. With our individualized treatment planning, we will assess each individual and find out what the causes and effects are of the addiction. We will develop an individualized treatment plan that will treat those causes and effects simultaneously.
An individualized rehab program is designed by our staff of professionals with the client’s unique needs, goals, and characteristics in mind. While there are many commonalities found among substance abusers, no two will ever be the same. Contributing factors to addiction and alcoholism include family history, biology, past trauma, physical and mental health conditions, and any number of environmental and circumstantial variables.
Programs are developed using information gathered from a complete assessment during intake. Professionals works with clients to develop a plan that is conducive to his or her personal and unique situation.
Addiction does not exist in a vacuum – rather, it is caused by a number of factors that contribute to its onset and maintenance.
These causes must be identified for each individual, and his or her program designed to address these issues and set goals for recovery.
Individual Therapy Sessions
In individual therapy, clients engage one-on-one with a trained therapist in a non-judgmental and confidential environment.
During therapy, clients are encouraged to explore feelings, beliefs, and behaviors in order to better understand themselves. They will also be prompted to work through negative memories and deal with difficult experiences.
Mental Health Treatment
The majority of substance abusers also suffer from some form of mental illness. These may include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, and many others.
Mental health treatment is integrated with substance abuse treatment because of the underlying common factors shared between addiction and mental illness. Persons with mental illness often seek out substances in order to self-medicate, but this is rarely a remedy, and usually makes mental illness worse.
Many times mental illness can be a culprit for the addiction. We focus on treating each person individually and that includes treating their mental disorder. Our licensed facility provides behavioral therapies and medication monitoring to help those with co-occurring disorders return to a healthy mental state coinciding with addiction treatment.
Substance abuse often occurs with a underlying conditions such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. Persons undergoing such illnesses often begin using as a means to self-medicate. However, most find that it ultimately exacerbates mental and emotional distress.
In the past, mental illness and substance abuse were often treating individually. However, this approach is not really effective. Underlying conditions are best treated simultaneously with addiction, and must be assessed and integrated at the onset of treatment.
Our Underlying Conditions Treatment Process
Step One: Physical and Psychiatric Evaluation
Upon intake, clients are given a complete physical and psychiatric evaluation.
During this time, clients will be asked questions about their mental and physical health history, family environment, substance abuse habits, and past experiences. Clients will also be given a full health exam.
Step Two: Individualized Treatment Planning for Underlying Conditions
Using this information, professionals work with clients to develop a personalized treatment plan based on diagnoses, past experiences,needs, goals, preferences, and other factors unique to each individual. Plans include options for detoxification, individual therapy and counseling, group therapy, and inpatient vs. outpatient treatment.
Step Three: Treatment Plan Assessment
During the treatment process, clients learn more about themselves, and professionals also gain greater insights into the client’s treatment needs. Therefore, treatment plans must be regularly re-assessed, and altered accordingly. Medications may be change, as well as specific aspects of treatment and approaches to therapy.
Treatment For Underlying Conditions Disorders
We treat a wide variety of mental health disorders including, but not limited to:
Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome
By treating mental illness in conjunction with addiction, we are able to address the underlying causes of addiction, ensuring that substance abuse recovery is effective and long-lasting. Simply put, those in recovery who continue to go untreated for mental illness are more likely to relapse and return to the cycle of self-medication.
We strongly believe that family and friends need to be involved in each client’s recovery process. It allows more support during this difficult time, as well as education about addiction for the family. Friends and family will be involved throughout the entire process and reunited toward the end of recovery to help rebuild relationships that may have been broken from the addiction.
Addiction is a condition that has repercussions far beyond individual suffering. Family and friends of the addict or alcoholic are also negatively affected in a variety of ways.
For example, addicts and alcoholics, by nature, can be very selfish. This is because they must put habitual needs above those of others. When addiction takes over the brain, the drive to continue using overtakes every other priority in life.
This may result in emotional pain and suffering on the part of those who love the client. This is a critical problem, because very often the people needed most for support are unable to provide it because of ongoing relationship dysfunction.
However, by including family therapy in addiction treatment, wounds can be healed, and improvements in understanding and communication can help rebuild the foundation for the client’s support system.
Components of Family Therapy
The staff at Just Believe Recovery understand the importance of involving the client’s family and friends in the recovery process. Moreover, the family is a critical component of the client’s ongoing treatment.
In addition to the client, our professionals assess the needs of the family, and provide education about chemical dependence and the facets of addiction. We also provide family support throughout the client’s treatment and recovery.
Within the first week of treatment, a therapist will establish communication with the family. As appropriate, staff will schedule visitations and/or phone conversations between the client and his or her family. As treatment progresses, these sessions will begin to focus on the reintegration of the client and the family.
By addressing addiction using the active involvement of a support system, clients are privy to the love and acceptance they require to regain a foothold in the world outside of addiction. In addition, it also assists loved ones in their own recovery from the damage caused by the user’s addiction.
