Malvern Institute 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.

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.

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:

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

Similar to methadone, buprenorphine is a drug meant to help with long-term treatment for opioid addiction. 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. Buprenorphine helps lessen the discomfort and danger of detox and withdrawal.

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 Malvern Institute offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

For most forms of chemical dependency, the stage of recovery that immediately follows intervention is detoxification. Each of Malvern Institute’s detoxification programs — from alcohol detox to heroin detox and everything in-between — provides continuous supervision and monitoring due to their nurses, clinical assistants, and technicians available around the clock. Beyond the constant medical support, our detoxification treatment offers patients the benefit of 82 hours of psychiatric care per week.

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.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Some individuals suffering from chemical dependency prefer outpatient treatment as the primary rehabilitation program. In such instances, intensive outpatient programs offer an experience that’s in between partial hospitalization and a general outpatient program. In other words, it’s an inpatient-like level of treatment intensity in the form of a more flexible, outpatient program.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient treatment is a vital component to a successful recovery. For nearly 70 years, the Malvern Institute has been a leader in the field of treating addiction. Outpatient treatment is one of the pillars of The Malvern Model, their continuum of care that features a holistic all-encompassing recovery.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Both detoxification and inpatient care comprise the inpatient phase of the Malvern Model. While in inpatient treatment, patients are able to overcome the physical aspects of the addiction before moving into the phase of recovery that’s arguably the most important: therapy. It’s when patients are in active treatment during the inpatient stage that they learn many of the most important tools that will aid them as they progress to more advanced stages of recovery. Through a variety of psychotherapeutic techniques, patients will learn to identify the underlying causes of their substance abuse problems while developing long-term strategies for addressing those issues, ensuring that each patient can achieve a long, successful recovery.

Intervention Services

Many recovery journeys begin with an intervention, which is why at Malvern Institute they take interventions very seriously. In fact, they have developed their own methodology for preparing and executing interventions. Meant to mirror and complement the Malvern Model of recovery, the Malvern Intervention Model is a valuable resource to those who have a loved one suffering from addiction.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Their staff clinicians provide an individualized treatment approach that addresses each person’s needs with tailored programming including education, family support and counseling sessions. They believe providing their patients with an understanding of their addiction and the tools to engage in recovery, they will choose the path to lifelong sobriety.

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

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.

Aftercare Support

Aftercare refers to those continuous efforts, consisting of the addiction treatments and services that help to sustain the momentum of recovery. Once a patient has completed the Malvern 90-Day Model or one of their individual programs at Malvern Institute, he or she is ready to reenter the community and work toward establishing their continued recovery outside of their facility. They encourage these individuals to join the Malvern Alumni Association, connecting with and making themselves available to others who have completed treatment at Malvern and who are on similar journeys of post-treatment recovery. Besides their thriving community of alumni, Malvern offers a one-of-a-kind recovery program that they call their Recovery-Oriented Community, or ROM for short. In short, the Recovery-Oriented Community is an ongoing network of engagement for individuals in recovery as well as the family members, friends, and other loved ones in their support networks.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

At Malvern, they believe that holistic all-encompassing recovery is best served through a complete understanding of addiction. That doesn’t happen in a day, a week, or a month – it happens over the course of 90 days. Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

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). 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.

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.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

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.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a therapeutic modality originally developed to help process trauma. In an EMDR session, a patient is prompted to undergo eye movements that mimic those of REM sleep. This is accomplished by watching a therapist’s finger move back and forth across, or following a bar of light. The goal is repetitive sets of eye movements that help the brain reprocess memory, which can significantly reduce the intensity of remembered traumatic incidents. Associated memories can heal simultaneously, leaving patients significantly calmer, more stable, and more emotionally relaxed.

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.

Creative Arts Therapy

Creativity is inherently healing, and can help those in recovery express thoughts or feelings they might not otherwise be able to. Creative arts therapy can include music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and more. Unlike traditional art, the final product matters far less than the experience of creation and expression itself.
