Substance Abuse Treatment
Substance abuse, such as alcohol abuse and chemical dependency, requires a multi-dimensional approach for effective treatment. The primary goal of our substance abuse programs is helping patients achieve long-term abstinence from drugs and alcohol through self-awareness, understanding, and support of the recovery process.
Substance abuse: treatment for alcohol abuse and chemical dependency
To meet the individual needs of our patients, our substance abuse treatment center combines chemical dependency evaluation services with a continuum of care that includes residential addiction recovery, partial hospitalization, outpatient, continuing care and family programs.Every chemical dependency or substance abuse patient is unique. We determine the optimum length of stay or type of program based on each individual’s needs. We offer ongoing evaluation during each phase of treatment to determine the patient’s requirements for successful recovery from alcohol and drug abuse.
Extended Care for Substance Abuse Treatment
The Transitions Recovery substance abuse program encompasses two essential phases based on the needs and progress of the patient.
In the first phase, the patient receives the most intense level of therapy, which can include group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, psycho-educational presentations, and attending 12-step meetings.
The initial phase of the substance abuse program provides an informational base that encourages awareness and understanding of chemical dependency. Topics range from drug and alcohol abuse to co-occurring problems (dual diagnosis), to development of constructive life skills like household budgeting and impulse control.
Phase two allows reentry into the community accompanied by less intense therapy, supporting the ultimate goal of recovery and self-sufficiency. This phase is continuous and based on the patient’s progress as assessed by the multi-disciplinary addiction treatment center team and the patient.
Outpatient and Continuing Treatment for Substance Abuse
Day Treatment is an option for patients who do not require residential treatment but still need intense substance abuse treatment.
Our Intensive Out Patient substance abuse program for alcohol abuse and chemical dependency provides six weeks of outpatient substance abuse treatment. The program treats the disease concept of addiction and includes an introduction to AA or NA and family involvement. Scheduling is according to the convenience of the patient.
Addiction recovery aftercare support groups play an important role in overcoming substance abuse and chemical dependency. All Transitions Recovery psychiatric and psychological services remain available to patients during aftercare, including continued relapse prevention education and 24-hour access to addiction treatment center staff.
Program for Families of Substance Abusers
When an individual suffers from substance abuse, their family also suffers. We believe that families need and deserve support just as the patient does. Transitions Recovery offers ongoing family support groups, so family members can work with trained professionals to begin recovery for themselves and the substance abuser.
