Butler Hospital Focus:

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Rehab Services:

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does Butler Hospital offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Men and women who require immediate stabilization, evaluation and treatment are cared for in one of four treatment units. Treatment is short-term and intensive, with average stay of eight days. Two inpatient units offer acute care and are staffed by clinicians and nurses who are specially trained to care for adults affected by anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), psychosis and other sever psychiatric conditions. Also there is an Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Unit offers specialized care to people who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol and need detoxification as well as psychiatric intervention.

Treatment Types:

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Family’s involvement and others who play a significant role in the patient's life, is encouraged. They can be very important to the success of the treatment and recovery. However, no contact with the family or others will be made without patient's signed consent.

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community  programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Therapies Offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Program helps men and women develop the skills to effectively manage depression, anxiety, substance abuse and many other psychiatric disorders.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

The Women's Partial Hospital Program at Butler Hospital helps women manage depression, anxiety, substance abuse, problematic behaviors and other psychiatric disorders. In the program, she will learn dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which helps manage suicidal thoughts, self-injurious behavior, and feelings that are overwhelming her. With a focus on practical problem-solving, the Women's Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Program teaches the skills needed to cope and effectively manage challenging relationships, situations, thoughts, and feelings. In an effort to change a very painful state of mind as a result of these challenges, she may be engaging in a variety of behaviors, such as self-injury, binge eating, reckless driving, compulsive cleaning, etc.

Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy includes one-on-one sessions between you and your therapist that incorporate the therapeutic approach that works best for each individual person. That may include any combination of therapy approaches such as psycho dynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, women's dialectical behavioral therapy and supportive and motivational therapy.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

According to the American Psychiatric Association, ECT is considered the most effective treatment for major depression for people who have not found relief of their symptoms from medications or other forms of therapy. ECT is most commonly recommended for people who have not found relief of their symptoms from medications or other forms of therapy used to treat major depression. Treatments are provided on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. For outpatient treatment, a family member, friend or health care worker must be available to help with transportation following the treatments.
