Carolina Treatment Center Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Rehab Services:

Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT)

Currently their largest segment of patients. Methadone maintenance still remains a very successful method of treating opioid dependence. An opioid dependent patient enters treatment through an assessment process which includes: a counseling assessment, completed by one of our qualified counselors and a physical assessment, completed by a nurse. The patient then meets with the program physician who uses the assessment information in combination with the patient interview to determine the best course of treatment and admit the patient to the program. As they operate a medical model, only a physician can admit a patient to their program. The patient is started on a conservative dose of methadone designed to reduce withdrawal, eliminate “highs or euphoria,” and allow the patient to engage in other areas of treatment. The patient’s medication level will be adjusted until they are “stable.” This can take 10 – 30 days. The average length of treatment varies considerably by patient.

Opioid Dependence Treatment

Opioids are any drugs based on the chemical composition of opium. An opiate is a synthetic (man-made) version of an opioid, also known as a narcotic. Opiate pain medications include prescription painkillers, like Oxycodone, OxyContin, and Percocet. Other opioids include morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, buprenorphine, methadone, and heroin. Dependence or addiction to opioids is treated in a similar fashion to other drug and alcohol addictions, with an eye towards helping the body detox safely before other treatment commences.

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

Those recovering from heroin addiction or other opiate addiction may be prescribed buprenorphine (Suboxone and Subutex) to help wean the body off of opioids safely, over time. Suboxone is the newest drug approved for use in treating opioid addiction. It is approved under the DATA2000 act which allows physicians with specialized training to prescribe this medication. OTP’s can also use Suboxone in the typical treatment facility setting through the physician and/or pharmacy. Suboxone is currently more expensive than Methadone Maintenance, but it has many desirable properties. The “ceiling” effect provides a stronger blockade of other opioids, thus making it safer. In addition, many patients will not need to come to the clinic as frequently for medication.

What does Carolina Treatment Center offer?

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.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

While medications can remove the “physical” symptoms of withdrawal, the emotional and psychological symptoms may continue. Counseling helps the dependent person develop skills and behaviors that help with the critical areas of recovery. Patients who fail to engage in treatment stand a considerably greater chance of relapse.

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.
