Mount Regis Center is located in Salem, Virginia. Mount Regis Center is an intimate 25-bed fully accredited, licensed drug and alcohol treatment center. They offer a number of empirically validated treatment methods to help you on your path to sobriety.
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.
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.
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.
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
In addition to their traditional medically monitored inpatient drug and alcohol detoxification program at Mount Regis Center, they also provide a suboxone program for those young adults who are struggling with opioid dependence, including heroin and prescription painkillers. During this program each patient is gradually weaned off the drug while the effects associated with opioid withdrawal are minimized. Each patient is closely monitored throughout the duration of this process in order to ensure safety and be able to adjust the dosage as necessary.
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 Mount Regis Center offer?
Medically Assisted Detox
Mount Regis Center offers a medically monitored inpatient drug and alcohol detoxification program. This means their physicians and nurses will carefully asses your drug and/or alcohol situation, develop an addiction detox plan especially for you and guide you through your individualized plan. After you complete their detox program, they’ll help you transition into one of their other programs.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Their Intensive Outpatient Program was designed to help those who can remain sober and function well enough to live at home with programming on a part-time basis. The IOP Program is primarily designed for those who have graduated from a higher level of care such as an inpatient program or partial hospitalization program. The individual needs to have reached a stage in recovery that allows them to deal with the normal stress of everyday life, and they must be able to cope with the emotions and issues raised during their time spent in treatment without there being a significant risk of relapse.
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
In order to get away from all the stressors, responsibilities, expectations and triggers associated with your substance use, you can take advantage of the ability to focus exclusively on your rehab efforts away from all these factors in a safe, supportive environment. An environment that provides intense substance abuse treatment using therapeutic approaches whose efficacy have been demonstrated makes an inpatient program the ideal setting for this type of intervention.
They are a small program which allows them to truly focus on each individual’s needs regarding their specific issues and problems. This means that their programming is flexible such that it represents the needs of the individuals currently with them. So group topics or the various issues worked through in groups varies based on the various disorders represented by the current population.
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 therapy focuses on explaining how your addiction developed, the purpose it served, your treatment, and plans for discharge while processing issues relate to the substance use in all members. This helps the entire family understand each other and allows them to provide mutual support in the future.
Mount Regis Center provides no cost aftercare services as a routine part of your discharge plan. Aftercare services help you to maintain your hard-earned momentum toward long term sobriety and health. Staff counselors conduct their after care services and depending on your situation and what your individual needs may be, they can offer you support with counseling, group therapy, depression and traumatic life events. Aftercare services at Mount Regis Center are free of charge for alumni for three months.
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)
This therapy works to alter the person’s expectations related to what positive effects the drug has on their lives and replace them with accurate expectations and thought related to the use of the drug. Increasing coping skills for various life stressors is also an important goal.
In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. While they are primarily a group based program, they understand the need for one on one attention when battling a heroin addiction and provide short individual sessions as necessary.
Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). They use a small groups approach to rehab. Groups are used to process common issues people have when addicted to substances as well as provide psycho-education in the form of topics based presentations and skills-based approaches.
Equine therapy, aka equine-assisted therapy (EAT), is a form of experiential therapy that involves interactions and activities with horses. It does not necessarily involve riding horses, but all activities related to horses, such as feeding, grooming, haltering and leading them. A mental health professional frequently oversees the activities (often in conjunction with a horse professional), and helps patients process their thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns during and/or after the interaction.
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.
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, 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.
