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 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.
Medical detoxification is medically assisted with physician approved and monitored medications and assessments. Any client that reports usage of alcohol; benzodiazepines such as Xanax or Valium; and Opiates such as hydrocodone or heroin and subsequently tests positive for those substances is placed within our medical detoxification program. These substances can have uncomfortable and medically concerning withdrawal symptoms that must be monitored much more closely. This program is typically 5 days because of the medication and monitoring protocols ordered by the Medical Director but can be extended depending upon medical necessity.
Observational detoxification (also called Social detoxification) is less restrictive on the client and typically does not involve medications or such close and regular monitoring as medical detoxification. Clients using substances other than those outlined for medical detoxification are typically put in to this modality of treatment to be observed and monitored for stability before entering into a traditional residential treatment program. This program is typically 3 days with less restriction on interaction with other clients and programs yet is still monitored and supervised by the Medical Director.

What does Quapaw House - Pine Road offer?
Residential (inpatient) Treatment
Residential treatment stays range from 21 days upward, depending on the needs of the client. An average day includes six hours of structured group and individual meetings and discussions, primarily focused on 12 Step recovery methods. These sessions also stress the disease process of addiction, as well as positive, productive solutions for life's problems.
At Quapaw House Inc., we present addiction as a disease and stress to clients that the only means of keeping this disease in remission is total abstinence from all mind and mood altering drugs, including alcohol. Group sessions are staff supervised. Individual counseling sessions are an important part of our treatment program, with a one-hour minimum per client weekly.
All counseling sessions are facilitated by a Licensed Therapist, Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, or other recognized substance abuse credentialed staff member. Small group sessions are held regularly to help meet the emotional needs of the clients. Responsibility for one's actions is stressed throughout the treatment cycle.
Attendance at outside 12 Step recovery meetings is encouraged after a client has been in residence for 10 days. Transportation is provided and attendance is staff supervised.
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).
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.
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. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
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.
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.
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.
