The truth is staff intimidates patients to try to make them feel like less of a human being. I don't know any worse place to do rehab.

They sent me home because they said they couldn't help me. they didn't talk to me once about how I felt and what's going on, I was treated like a homeless person, The staff is rude and unprofessional. They are constantly joking and making fun of patients. I would never recommend Lifeline Connections!

As part of their outpatient program, you can start taking back your life alongside other individuals in the deaf community who understand your social and cultural needs.

Vivitrol:

Vivitrol is a prescription injectable medicine used to prevent relapse to opioid dependence, after opioid detox and to treat alcohol dependence (alcoholism). To be effective, Vivitrol must be used along with recovery programs, such as counseling. If you take opioids or opioid-containing medication, such as prescription pain medications or street drugs, you must stop these for 7-10 days before starting Vivitrol. You should stop drinking before starting Vivitrol.

Naltrexone:

Naltrexone is an FDA-approved medication used to treat opioid and alcohol addiction. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings and prevent relapse, making recovery easier. It comes either in pill form (ReVia, Depade), taken once a day; or in an injectable form (Vivitrol), administered monthly. Patients must not have any illegal opioids or opioid medication in their system for at least 7-10 days before starting naltrexone (this includes methadone, so if you’re switching from methadone to naltrexone, you must wait until your system is clear).

Buprenorphine Detox:

Suboxone is the first opioid medication approved under Drug Addiction Treatment Act (DATA) 2000 for the treatment of opioid dependence in an office-based setting. Suboxone also can be dispensed for take-home use, just as any other prescription medication. Suboxone mimics the effects of other opioids by alleviating cravings and withdrawal symptoms. This allows you to address the psychosocial reasons behind your opioid use.

Medication-Assisted Treatment:

Withdrawal can be difficult—the right medication can assist you through the process quickly and set you on the path to a successful recovery. Their outpatient medication-assisted treatment can help you take control of your life again. With their team of skilled professionals at your side, you’ll get the care and support you need to free yourself from substance use.

Level of Care:

edit

Outpatient:

Outpatient treatment includes individual and group therapy sessions; the intensity of sessions depends on the individual’s needs from weekly to monthly meetings. Individuals who have completed our inpatient programs are encouraged to continue treatment in an outpatient setting. During sessions patients are educated on relapse prevention and coping skills amongst many other tools to help adjust and continue a substance free lifestyle. The goal of this program is to help patients achieve and maintain sobriety, and reintegrate into their communities

Medically Assisted Detox:

Lifeline Connections provides medically-assisted detoxification and substance use treatment to help patients attain mental and physical stability without harmful side effects. The facility provides caring compassion and is dedicated to helping patients reach their goal of sobriety and freedom from drugs and alcohol.

Intensive Outpatient:

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.

Inpatient:

After an individual has safely detoxed from drugs and/or alcohol they are encouraged to continue treatment into their residential program. The goal of this program is to provide individual, group and family counseling and support to help individuals learn skills to live a substance-free life. This program lasts 21-30 days on average and is located just down the hall from our withdrawal management unit. Patients enjoy an environment that includes community access and structure to help them build life skills to assist patients in achieving overall wellness.

Intervention Services:

Intervention services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict's behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.

Individualized Treatment:

Individual and group sessions will help you develop the skills to support your recovery. Your customized program may also include substance use disorder, intensive outpatient treatment or outpatient groups that meet one, two or three times a week. They also offer monthly group sessions. Working one-on-one with a recovery coach has been nationally proven to support success. Your coach will guide and encourage you along your individual treatment path.

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. Support from your community can play a key role in your ongoing success. We’ll help you build a strong network to bolster your recovery after treatment. Lifeline Connections offers free monthly aftercare classes to individuals who have completed their outpatient programs successfully.

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 and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Sober Living Homes:

Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who've just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.

24-Hour Clinical Care:

At certain points in the recovery process, it's important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Holistic Treatment:

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic treatment facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic treatment is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Treatment Focus:

edit

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.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs 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.

Dual Diagnosis:

Lifeline Connections provides mental health outpatient treatment to those with a mental health condition or a co-occurring disorder, mental health and substance use disorder. They work with clients every step of the way to help them discover and build their own strengths. Lifeline Connections is one of the few mental health outpatient centers capable of treating co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. With locations throughout the Pacific Northwest, their holistic approach helps individuals with a dual diagnosis achieve balance and stability in their lives.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab 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.

Therapy Programs:

edit

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.

Individual Therapy:

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Family Therapy:

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.

Life Skills:

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

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). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Nutrition Therapy:

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Animal Therapy:

Animal therapy (aka pet therapy or animal-assisted therapy) can be very healing, as it allows patients to bond with animals, who give unconditional love. This is particularly useful for those who suffered trauma by the hands of people, who may be able to trust and form closer attachments to animals than humans at certain stages of rehabilitation.

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.
