What You Can Expect From an Inpatient Drug Treatment Program
The best type of drug rehabilitation program is one that uses unique treatment methods for addiction and teaches patients how to take full responsibility for their actions. This type of treatment is centered on the idea that the actions that lead to substance abuse and addiction are learned behaviors that can be changed with the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This treatment method helps to resolve spiritual, emotional and physical issues that patients who struggle with addiction tend to have. In order to get the best results from this therapy program, it is best for patients to seek inpatient treatment. Choosing inpatient treatment will give patients the opportunity to learn essential recovery skills.
We feel that patients should be able to choose their own recovery method. In order to help make this possible, we provide structured treatment methods that can be fine-tuned to fit a patient’s specific requirements and needs. Every aspect of the program is intended to help patients reach their own specific goals. Read on to learn more about the main aspects of our treatment program.
With an individual treatment plan, the patient will work one-on-one with their main counselor. This will guarantee that all of their particular needs are met throughout their treatment process. Once the patient creates a set of goals that they would like to achieve, the counselor helps them to choose the most beneficial programs for them to take part in.
Counseling for Groups and Individuals
Individual counseling sessions give patients an intimate setting in which to resolve the issues that cause their addictive behaviors. Group counseling allows patients to discuss shared issues with a group of peers who are also going through similar treatment programs. These group sessions tend to focus on resolving the negative thought patterns, behavior problems and emotional trauma that caused their addiction. Once the patient has completed the inpatient program, their counselor can help them to create a plan to receive on-going counseling sessions.
Lectures are an important aspect of addiction treatment because it teaches patients about the effects that certain substances have on their bodies. Lectures also include information on how to develop basic skills for living a sober life and being a productive member of society. Important skills like stress management are essential things that patients need to learn in order to maintain their sobriety. The resources and information that patients receive in these lectures will prove to be quite valuable after they complete the program. Below are the groups and lectures that patients will be able to take part in:
- Basic Overview of 12-Step Programs
In these lectures, patients will learn about 12-step programs like NA and AA. Instructors will discuss the basic elements involved in these programs along with a brief history. These support programs offer on-going support to recovering addicts and greatly reduce the likelihood of relapse.
- Moral Reconation and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
This type of therapy is intended to help patients create a healthy self-image and develop a positive mindset. These skills will greatly increase patients’ level of cognitive reasoning. They will also be able to uncover additional talents that they can use to improve their self-confidence and remain motivated to reach their goals. Patients are less likely to return to their addictive behavior once they realize how much they have to offer others.
- Self-Discovery Inventory
This program teaches patients how to come to terms with negative past events that lead to their problems with addiction. These unresolved negative events can keep patients from reaching their goals or living up to their highest potential. Helping patients to resolve these past issues gives them the chance to start their addiction-free life with a clean slate.
- Identifying Addictive Triggers
After a patient completes the program and leaves the treatment facility, they must know how to avoid people and situations that can trigger negative thoughts and behavior. This is one of the most difficult aspects of remaining sober. Certain triggers can cause patients to return to their addictive patterns. This program gives patients the tools to know how to identify and avoid their triggers after they leave in-patient treatment.
- Preventing Relapse
This program aims to help patients understand that sobriety is an on-going process and that it is completely up to them whether they fail or succeed. In the event that certain indicators of relapse appear, patients will be armed with the skills and resources necessary to overcome them.
- Anger Management
In order to help patients remain in control of their stress and anger levels, we also offer anger management programs. These programs give patients the skills needed to manage stressful situations in a positive way. They will also learn other important skills like forgiveness and how to release feelings of resentment and anger.
