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
TCN, as a provider of all types of behavioral health treatment, recognizes that many clients have both mental illness and chemical dependency treatment needs. This highly specialized treatment option addresses the challenges of working toward recovery when dealing with multiple issues. Education and skill building focus on abstaining from substances while managing the challenges of mental illness. Clients receive additional support in this program through involvement with Community Support Services.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications along with counseling and therapy to treat substance abuse. MAT is mainly used to treat opioid addictions (i.e. heroin and/or prescription drugs like OxyContin or Vicodin). Medications like buprenorphine are used in MAT to help normalize brain chemistry, block the effects of alcohol and/or opioids, relieve cravings, and stabilize body functions, making sobriety easier to maintain. All medications used are approved by the FDA, and every MAT program is tailored to the patient’s specific needs.
Buprenorphine used for Detox and Treatment
Buprenorphine (brand name Subutex, among others) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine can prevent or significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to get and stay off opioids. Sometimes used alongside naloxone, dosage depends on the severity of each case. Many people stay on buprenorphine long-term, although some gradually reduce the dosage to come off it.
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 TCN Behavioral Health Services offer?
Medically Assisted Detox
TCN offers outpatient detoxification for opiate addiction though their Creekside Outpatient Clinic. Their doctors follow the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services protocols for use of Suboxone (TM) for opiate detoxification in a convenient outpatient setting. The medication is administered by a staff of trained addictionologist in conjunction with client participation in intensive outpatient group therapy.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Intensive Outpatient (IOP) is for clients with a substance use disorder diagnosis who need a highly structured program to maintain abstinence. The group is designed to offer education about substance use disorder, relapse prevention, and basic recovery skills. Focus of the group is treatment and development of naturally-existing support groups in the community.
All of TCN's outpatient services are designed to fit your personal needs. Through the use of group counseling, individual counseling, and case management services they will work with you to create goals and tailor a program that best suits you. Standard Outpatient Level 1 (SOP I) is for clients who have experienced one or two consequences associated with substance use. Clients appropriate for this group have made unhealthy decisions concerning substance use or behavior while intoxicated has been problematic. Standard Outpatient Level 2 (SOP II) is designed to offer education about substance use disorder and relapse prevention, assist client in evaluating his/her relationship with substances, and teach healthy coping skills for daily living.
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.
TCN offers scheduled Individual Assessments and a Mental Health Walk-in Clinic weekly at both their Xenia and Fairborn locations. You will meet privately with a counselor who will assist you in developing personal goals based upon your circumstances, needs, and preferences. Your TCN counselor will assist you in the goal setting process and give you skilled guidance in determining the most appropriate treatment plan for meeting those goals. A case manager is assigned to assist with a number of activities related to specific recovery needs: housing, financial management assistance, linkage to community resources, medication assistance, and skill building.
Aftercare is for clients who have completed IOP, residential, or forensic treatment and have over 30 days of abstinence. Focus of group is further development of relapse prevention skills, identifying relapse triggers, and supporting client in expanding and utilizing support system.
You may encounter relational stressors that require your significant other or entire family to participate in the counseling process. As with Individual Counseling, the concerned parties will contribute to the goal setting and plan development to ensure that treatment is meaningful to your situation.
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.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.
Based upon the goals and plan developed at assessment, TCN counselors work to meet those individualized needs. Counseling is customized to meet client needs and build upon strengths. Their counselors will review progress regularly and tailor future sessions to your evolving needs.
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 counseling provides a unique and dynamic atmosphere to address specific issues. Building support with people who share similar concerns, giving and receiving feedback, and observing successes and challenges are just a few of the advantages of group counseling. TCN offers group therapy including Anger Management, their Recovery Program day treatment for severe mental illness, and dialectical behavior therapy group, Wise Minds.
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.
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.
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.
TCN provides a best-practice Supported Employment program to assist mentally ill clients in pursuit of meaningful job opportunities suited to their clients' strengths and abilities. Their program assesses their clients' aptitudes and goals to assist with job placement and job support.
