Memphis Recovery Centers (MRC) is a non-profit organization which provides help for adolescents and adults dealing with substance abuse problems and co-occurring mental health issues.

Memphis Recovery Centers Focus:

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.

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.

What does Memphis Recovery Centers offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

An IOP program offers a flexible addiction treatment solution, allowing individuals to continue living their daily lives. Instead of staying at onsite 24/7 like in residential treatment programs, intensive outpatient programs allow people to live at home. Despite being able to live at home, individuals still go to the rehab center for treatment sessions. How often they attend treatment and the length of these sessions vary greatly between rehab centers. However, sessions typically last upwards of three hours. Some centers also require clients to check in daily.

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

MRC offers residential and partial hospitalization programs for adult men and women seeking recovery from substance abuse. These programs are self-paced and built upon specialized plans designed by the patient and his or her counselor. All programs are gender specific. Services include individual, group and family sessions, process groups, recovery support groups, educational lectures, nutrition and wellness programs, and music/art therapy. All treatment is based upon goals established by the patient and their professional counselor.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Substance abuse and addiction are difficult enough to overcome by themselves. Patients have to learn to not only stop using the substance, but also how to change behaviors to ensure a prosperous future. However, an underlying mental health issue can make addiction even more difficult to overcome. MRC utilizes dual diagnosis and trauma therapy to help treat co-occurring disorders simultaneously for a comprehensive recovery.

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.

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

Effective family therapy stems from the idea that the family is a system. Whether positive or negative, all of the people in that system have an effect on each other. Therefore, if one person changes or has a problem, it impacts the entire family. Keeping that in mind, family therapy typically involves sessions or meetings with various family members or close friends. Sometimes, these meetings involve the loved one with the addiction. Other times, the sessions only involve certain family members. In either case, the end goal remains to develop an understanding for the person who’s suffering from addiction.

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). 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

Individuals often resort to substance abuse to cope with past traumatic experiences. For instance, a patient may have suffered from physical or sexual abuse as a child. As a result, many continue to deal with anxiety or stress even as they get older. Trauma therapy helps individuals cope with the related anxiety without resorting to drug or alcohol use. During trauma therapy, staff delves deep into patients’ past experiences to determine what triggers their anxiety. Once patients are able to confront their fears, true rehabilitation can begin.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Memphis Recovery Centers Highlights:

While there’s no shortage of inpatient drug rehab programs, most of them shy away from individualized treatment plans . Our focus on custom recovery plans is programs at Memphis Recovery last longer and are more effective than other facilities. For example, our inpatient drug rehab for adolescents lasts for at least three months. In some cases, it can last even longer, not to mention that our subsequent aftercare programs can last up to six months in some cases.
