Intensive Outpatient programs 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). Community Intensive Outpatient is tailored to those individuals that have been able to cease consistent and persistent drug and alcohol abuse, but still require the development of tools to respond to relapse triggers, cravings, and other hurdles of early recovery.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.
Clinical and medical assessment are ongoing throughout their care. As these needs are identified, the clinical team will develop an extensive and individualized treatment plan, tailored to each person and their family. Treatment plans aim to address multiple areas of life, and establish realistic, measurable, and attainable goals to promote healthy progress.
12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The benefits of a 12-step based program like this one are plentiful. One of the biggest reasons so many people attend 12-step meetings is because they offer a place to share in their recovery. If you have wondered about ways to cope with the stressors of life during rehabilitation, you are sure to find solace in these sessions. The sessions also allow clients to meet others with similar struggles, allowing them to share and learn new ways to further their progress.
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.
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.
Outpatient Services are available for those who have been able to cease consistent and persistent drug and alcohol abuse, and have also developed a foundation of recovery tools in a previous program such as Residential and/or IOP services. Outpatient services are provided 1 or 2 nights per week, depending on clinical necessity.
At Midwest Recovery Centers, they believe that remaining engaged in support throughout the first year of recovery greatly improves one’s chances of long-term success. As an individual progresses through the phases of treatment, they provide an extensive aftercare program to continue to reinforce the principles and behaviors that have been learned in the recovery process. Individuals are encouraged to remain involved at a minimal level to continue with relapse prevention while they are building a productive lifestyle in sobriety.
Sober Living Homes:
While they are a therapeutic program first, therapy is only part of the package; they also offer a structured sober living program. They believe that residing in a safe environment with others in the same stages of recovery promotes a sense of community and provides support. Their scheduled activities and functions are in place to follow a fun and healthy, active sober lifestyle.
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 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.
Substance rehabs 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.
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.
They recognize that family is an essential part of recovery for anyone. Along with the difficult behaviors that come along with addiction, co-dependence is also prevalent amongst family members. Their goal is to not only treat those with drug and alcohol dependence, but to provide education, counseling, and support for families. Their mission is to prepare families for the common obstacles associated with early recovery, development of healthy boundaries, and the tools to respond to the natural struggles that occur in sobriety.
During the admission process, each individual is assigned a personal therapist that will conduct individual therapy. They understand that some difficulties take time to resolve, and a group setting is not always the best avenue to find solutions. Individual therapy provides the opportunity to work on specific issues, have ongoing assessment and diagnosis, and to provide appropriate referrals. They have a large team of trained professionals in the community who may work in conjunction with the staff at Midwest to provide a complete clinical experience.
Eating Disorder Treatment:
Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and dysfunctional eating patterns. Many psychologists and other mental health professionals consider eating disorders to be food addictions, meaning food is being used in an addictive way (similar to drug or alcohol addiction). Certain substance abuse treatment programs will have treatment for eating disorders as one of the services offered. An eating disorder may also present as a co-occuring disorder or dual diagnosis alongside drug and alcohol addiction.
Nicotine Replacement Therapy:
Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is a way of getting nicotine into the bloodstream without smoking. It uses products that supply low doses of nicotine to help people stop smoking. The goal of therapy is to cut down on cravings for nicotine and ease the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal.
The goal of group therapy is to assist each client in identifying and understanding their own pathology in regard to their substance dependence. They strive to interrupt the self-destructive patterns of alcohol and drug use. Their talented staff have developed curriculum that promote the development of relapse prevention skills, communication skills, introspection, harm reduction and resolution, and establishing healthy boundaries. Group therapies range from emotional process groups, to cognitive behavioral therapies and psycho-educational groups. These lessons may be delivered in lecture form, group discussion, artistic expression, video, or written assignments.
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.
Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.
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.
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, 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.
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.
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.
