Therapeutic Living for Families 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.

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.

Rehab Services:

Psychotropic Medication

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 Therapeutic Living for Families offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

The Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program is a six- to eight-week structured substance abuse program for adults and adolescents (over the age of 14) who are experiencing behavioral and/or emotional problems due to substance abuse. This program is designed for clients who do not require Partial Hospitalization Treatment and need a less restrictive scope of services. The IOP Treatment Program employs a multi-modal treatment perspective, developed according to each client’s individual needs. Treatment consists of a broad range of therapies, dependent on the client’s nature and the severity of his or her illness.

Outpatient (OP)

The Outpatient Program (OP) offers individual therapy once per week for adults and adolescents (over the age of 14) who are experiencing behavioral and/or emotional problems due to substance abuse. This program is designed for clients who do not require Intensive Outpatient Treatment and need a less restrictive scope of services. Interventions are conducted by a qualified and competent professional staff, who provide individual counseling once per week, or more often if needed.

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.

Family Program

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.

Aftercare Support

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. If you need to receive treatment in a hospital or other inpatient facility, your Health Home provider will remain in contact with you and other providers to ensure your needs are met, especially when your level of treatment changes.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

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.

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

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 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.

Couples Treatment

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.

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.

Therapeutic Living for Families Highlights:

Therapeutic Living for Families employs a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP) that helps clients with chronic mental health issues develop and maintain the skills needed to function successfully in the community. Their PRP staff works to bridge the gap between the clinic and the community, supporting clients and facilitating their recovery to prevent relapse or hospitalization.
Therapeutic Living for Families offers Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) that focus on behavior modification for children and youth. They utilize short-term interventions in the child’s home, school or community to help the child learn new adaptive behaviors to replace dysfunctional or dangerous ones. Their services include creating behavioral intervention plans, identifying coping skills, creating safety plans, behavioral tracking, positive reinforcement and parent coaching.
In the clinic/school based program, licensed professionals with culturally diverse backgrounds provide individual, group and family therapy for clients in office, home and school settings. Therapeutic Living for Families has 18 licensed therapists who provide both in-service and consultations in more than 20 Baltimore City Public Schools.
The Partial Hospitalization Treatment Program is a highly structured, individualized treatment program for adults and adolescents (over the age of 14) who are experiencing behavioral and/or emotional problems due to substance abuse. This program is designed for clients who are not in need of 24-hour inpatient service. Clients fall into two categories: those at high risk for relapse, and those who require a higher degree of external control and support for a drug-free lifestyle. The program consists of 30 hours of treatment per week (or five days per week, approximately six hours per day). Clients who are appropriate for this level of treatment will meet the current edition of the ASAM criteria for Level II.1.
