What is an Addiction Rehab Program?
When it comes to addiction treatment, there are various levels of care. These levels of care vary based on their intensity of treatment. For example, inpatient drug rehab programs are highly intense and structured and provide 24/7 care and monitoring. People should attend these programs if they suffer from severe level drug addictions and/or they need 24/7 care and monitoring.
There are three types of outpatient drug rehab programs. These three include partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), and standard outpatient program (OP). We here at Live Free Recovery specialize in sober living homes. We also offer outpatient forms of drug rehab. Discover more about the drug rehab programs that we offer here at Live Free Recovery.
What Forms of Addiction Therapy and Addiction Treatment Services Are Within PHP and Outpatient Treatment At Live Free Recovery?
Within both the PHP and outpatient treatment programs here at Live Free Recovery, patients will partake in various forms of addiction therapy and treatment. Such forms of addiction therapy and treatment range from individual therapy to group therapy, and even dual diagnosis treatment for people that suffer from substance addictions and co-occurring mental illnesses. PHP patients here at Live Free Recovery are also able to receive medication-assisted treatment.
During outpatient treatment here at Live Free Recovery, patients can receive substance abuse education. That way, our rehab patients can better understand the negative impact that addiction has had on their lives.
Outpatient treatment here at Live Free Recovery even provides patients with physical activities and recreational therapy. That way rehab patients can simultaneously work on their physical and mental health while receiving treatment. By doing so, the “whole” rehab patient is being treated and taken care of. This makes our rehab patients less susceptible to relapsing.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) Treatment
Here at Live Free Recovery, we offer three specific drug rehab programs. One of them is partial hospitalization program (PHP) treatment. PHP treatment programs require their patients to attend rehab for approximately five to eight hours a day, five to seven days a week. PHP patients can tend to their normal life responsibilities outside of that time period and live in their own homes. Because PHP treatment occurs essentially all day long, another name for it is day treatment. PHP treatment is a perfect middle ground between inpatient and outpatient treatment. In fact, many would say that PHP treatment is the best of both inpatient and outpatient treatment. This is because PHP treatment offers patients the intensity and structure of an inpatient treatment program. On the flip side though, PHP also offers the flexibility of being able to go to one’s own home at the end of the day like other outpatient programs. PHP treatment is perfect for individuals that would benefit from more concentrated care than what typical outpatient treatment provides. PHP treatment is also ideal for people that don’t want or need to live in a rehab facility 24/7 while receiving care. People who want extra care to help them transition out of inpatient treatment would also benefit from PHP treatment.
Inpatient treatment programs are the most comprehensive form of addiction treatment. Inpatient treatment programs are recognized as residential treatment. As a patient, you can expect to receive 24/7 quality care. It’s best to inform your employer and find living arrangements for your loved ones. Your support system can contact you while you receive treatment. A distraction-free environment is a fundamental benefit of inpatient treatment programs. 30 days is the average length of time a patient spends at inpatient treatment. Although, 90 days is recommended for consistent recovery efforts. The cost of inpatient treatment will be reflected in the location and programs offered. For example, family therapy is a common therapy offered at inpatient treatment. Medically monitored detox is the first phase. After an initial evaluation, your body will need to be free of toxic substances in order for treatment to fully take effect. Depending on the severity of your case, you can expect to spend 7-10 days overcoming withdrawal symptoms. Medications could be provided to alleviate your symptoms. If you have a pre-existing condition or are pregnant, discuss your history with the medical staff. Individual and group therapy sessions are offered at inpatient treatment programs. A supportive environment can be effective in treating patients. Chances are you’ll have many questions about addiction and the staff will welcome your desire to learn. Other amenities such as art, music, and massage therapy are offered but vary by the facility. Research the credentials of the facility you intend to receive treatment from.
The third type of drug rehab program that we offer here at Live Free Recovery is our sober living program. Sober living here at Live Free Recovery provides individuals that have just finished addiction treatment and are new to recovery with a safe space to live. This safe space to live is free from substance use temptation and full of other people that are new to addiction recovery. Thus, sober living is a great way to transition from addiction treatment back into the real world. Because our sober living homes assist people as they transition back into regular society after addiction treatment, our sober living home residents are expected to attend school or receive some form of employment. Our sober living home residents are also expected to live their own lives in the real world when not physically at their sober living homes. Although our sober living homes expect residents to attend school or get a job and live their own lives, they will still receive addiction recovery support in the form of addiction therapy and weekly sober living home activities and service projects. Sober living home residents here at Live Free Recovery are also expected to connect with and support one another. That way, each Live Free Recovery sober living home resident can build on his or her support network.
Outpatient treatment is one of the other drug rehab programs that we offer here at Live Free Recovery. This form of addiction treatment is drug rehab that people commute to receive care for each day. Once individuals complete their outpatient treatment for the day, they can go back to their normal lives. Such people can also tend to their normal day-to-day responsibilities. People that receive outpatient treatment can even live in the comfort of their own homes during the period of time that others are receiving care. Outpatient treatment is typically the least intensive of all the drug rehab programs. Thus, outpatient care is best suited for individuals who, despite needing help to overcome their substance use issues, have not gotten to the point where their drug addictions are severe enough to affect their work, school, or home life much. Individuals that want to receive extra addiction treatment to help them transition from inpatient or PHP treatment to the regular world would benefit from receiving outpatient care. Individuals that want a brush-up on addiction treatment to help them maintain their sobriety would also benefit from receiving the outpatient services here at Live Free Recovery.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
The idea of IOPs is to give people the chance for recovery while they continue with their lives. They do this by providing counseling in group settings and one-on-one sessions. Additionally, individuals can continue receiving treatment while still living either at home or in a sober living environment.
An intensive outpatient program can help people to transition from more intensive treatment programs (i.e. residential) to life after rehabilitation. IOPs are also beneficial for those who suffer from mild forms of addiction rather than severe ones. While in an intensive outpatient program, individuals can develop relapse prevention skills and discover ways to continue improving their emotional and mental health. This can be life-changing in the most positive ways.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medication-assisted treatment for substance abuse is a treatment method that uses FDA-approved medications. MAT works in combination with addiction therapy modalities to provide a comprehensive approach to recovery. The medications used in medication-assisted treatment can be useful for various purposes, including pain reduction and the blocking of desirable effects from drugs and alcohol.
While people withdraw from drug and alcohol use, they may experience quite a bit of discomfort. Some people may also seek to use their substance of choice again to cause the unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal to subside. The medications used in MAT can help prevent both of these instances.
Dual Diagnosis Program
Many individuals who are suffering from addiction also have co-occurring mental health disorders. In some cases, substance abuse can be a contributing factor to the development of a mental illness. For example, a person may develop depression after dealing with the negative emotional, behavioral, mental, and even financial effects of alcoholism. In other situations, addiction may develop as a result of an existing mental health condition. For instance, a person may become dependent on the medication they use to manage their mental health disorder.
Some people may have co-occurring disorders that developed separately, yet still affect one another. In any case, however, the type of treatment people with co-occurring disorders need is undeniable. A professional dual diagnosis program is the best option for those seeking treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
Individuals who can benefit from our dual diagnosis treatment approach may suffer from addiction and one or more of the following mental health conditions:
- Anxiety disorders
- Major depressive disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Personality disorders
- Bipolar disorder
While in our dual diagnosis program, individuals can receive treatment that addresses all of their needs. This is the benefit of a program that is designed specifically for those who have co-occurring disorders. A dual diagnosis approach does not treat only addiction; nor does it treat only mental illness. Instead, it addresses both disorders simultaneously. This can make all the difference in the world when it comes to recovery.
Addiction Therapy Services
Therapy is one of the most important components of addiction treatment. When a person enters addiction rehab, it is important that they receive treatment for the whole person, not just the physical symptoms and effects of addiction.
Those suffering from substance use disorders experience changes in every area of their lives. Addiction doesn’t just change a person physically. It impacts a person’s way of thinking. It causes major behavioral shifts to take place. Addiction can completely destroy family units. For all of these reasons and more, therapy for addiction recovery is a necessity in treatment programs.
Some of the most common types of addiction therapy services include the following:
- Individual therapy: Sessions take place in a one-on-one setting, with only the recovering individual and a therapist.
- Group therapy: Sessions involve groups of recovering individuals. These therapy meetings are led by one or more therapists.
- Family therapy: Sessions involve the family members of recovering individuals. Family therapy provides families with education and support as their loved one recovers.
- Cognitive behavioral therapy: Also known as CBT, this type of therapy identifies harmful and negative cognitive behaviors and thought processes. CBT seeks to replace these thought patterns with healthier, more positive cognitive behaviors.
- Dialectical behavior therapy: Often called DBT, this type of therapy is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy. DBT focuses on mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation.
Here at Live Free Recovery Services, we offer therapeutic approaches that address the unique and individual needs of our clients.
