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.
Detoxification is the most intensive level of care Willingway provides. This includes comfortable detoxification by qualified, specialty trained addiction medicine physicians. Willingway’s tenured team of addiction professionals will work with individuals to achieve a true mental/physical health baseline.
What does Willingway - Women's Residence offer?
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.
Willingway’s intensive Outpatient Program offers another level of care for the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction. The program is designed for individuals in a stage of chemical dependency that may not require treatment in an inpatient setting but want to achieve sobriety in a less-intensive, confidential setting. The program can also benefit patients who have completed inpatient treatment but who need continued care to make the transition more smoothly back to the home environment.
Residential (inpatient) Treatment
The Inpatient Residential Treatment Program follows Detoxification. The program is structured to focus on emotional stabilization, education about the illness, development of recovery resources and skills, and personal adoption of recovery principles.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
Willingway’s experienced medical staff addresses the occurrence of dual diagnosis by assessing the alcohol and drug history, mental health diagnosis, and family of origin heredity/history. During the intensive inpatient program, the focus is to help patients establish a true mental health and chemical free baseline. This approach allows patients and clinical staff the opportunity to more accurately partner with one another in understanding their mental health and substance abuse issues.
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.
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 owned and operated since we opened our doors in 1971, no one knows families like Willingway. A 5-day Family Program is included at the end of Inpatient Treatment and we encourage spouses and family members to participate. Healthy family relationships are an essential part of healing from alcohol and drug addiction and with open arms, we welcome the support of family members.
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).
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.
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.
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.
