After taking the drug continuously the person becomes tolerant such that they need more of the drug in order to feel the effects. The cycle then goes on and on. What started as a way of having fun and experimenting becomes a full circle problem of addiction.

rehabilitation is the safest and most effective way for an addict to recover. There are different forms of rehabs and programs but all are aimed at getting an individual out of the addiction. The common process of rehabilitation is detoxification behavioral therapy medication and aftercare. Alcohol Detox New Jersey Options Alcohol is the most abused drug in New Jersey and the world. The main reason is that alcohol is legal in most countries and therefore the government does not control or regulate its manufacture and distribution. As a result alcoholism has become a problem for many societies. Alcoholism is unique in that it is a condition that affects not only the addict but also the addict’s family.

slide 5:

Alcohol detox New Jersey is the first step to recovery. It is impossible to recover from alcoholism without first doing through the detox process. This is one of the hardest for treatment centers to educate on with their drug rehab marketing. Detoxification gives an addict a fighting chance when it comes time to go for the behavioral therapy and the other steps in treatment. However a patient cannot rely solely on a detox to recover from alcoholic addiction. Besides setting the stage for the other steps of recovery an alcohol detox gets a patient’s body in check. By definition a detox helps the body to get rid of harmful substances and bring the body back on track. It helps to get rid of dependency. Before an alcoholic can seek alcohol detoxification sometimes you need to know how to perform an intervention for an alcoholic. During that process options for inpatient or outpatient addiction treatment centers can be determined. However heavy users will need round the clock medical monitoring

slide 6:

What Does an Alcohol Detox in New Jersey Provide In the drug rehabs New Jersey alcohol detox phase it is impossible for a patient not to experience some negative effects even when the detox is medically-assisted. The medications only limit the side effects to some levels but some side effects are unavoidable. A patient will experience the side effects in two phases:

slide 7:

Phase 1: Acute Alcohol Detoxification Withdrawal Phase Phase 1 begins within hours after an alcoholic stops consuming alcohol. It goes on for days or weeks. In phase 1 a patient experiences the most severe side effects which are mainly physical. A patient experiences these symptoms because the body has relied on alcohol over the course of months or years of drinking. Since alcohol is a depressant the brain eventually stops producing certain chemicals that it receives from alcohol causing alcohol dependence. The withdrawal phase is a period when the body is taking time to adjust thus causing such experiences. The side effects include: • Convulsions • Whole body tremor • Nausea • Vomiting • Insomnia

slide 8:

• Profuse sweating • Shakiness • Hypertension • Heart failure A patient can also experience some psychological breaks like anxiety and visual and auditory hallucinations. Phase 2: Early Abstinence During Alcohol Detox This is the second and longer phase of alcohol detox. It usually occurs over months as the brain slowly begins to regulate and get back to normal functioning. It is also called the post- acute withdrawal symptoms stage. In this phase a patient will experience more psychological than physical side effects like anxiety restlessness insomnia diminished appetite mood swings and depression. The alcohol detox experience is not a very comfortable one which explains why alcoholics are advised not to detox on their own most especially long term abusers. Cold turkey detoxes can be dangerous and fatal even leading to death. Some of the dangers of detoxing alone include: • Seizures • Anxiety • Aspiration pneumonia • Heart arrhythmias • Insomnia • Headache

slide 9:

• Kidney or liver dysfunction • Fever • Depression • Intense cravings • Extreme nausea • Hallucinations Such experiences require medical attention to mitigation. Day to Day Experience of an Alcohol Detox Day 1: Intake When an alcoholic has made up their mind to go to an alcohol detox addiction treatment center program the first day is a day of physical examination. During the intake the medical team will do a comprehensive review of the patient’s drug medical and psychiatric histories so that they can fully understand the situation. The withdrawal symptom that a patient experiences do not follow an exact timeline but there is a general outline on what to expect. The first six to 12 hours In the initial hours the symptoms of the alcohol detox that one experiences are mild. However they can quickly begin to worsen as time goes by. The early symptoms to expect are headaches anxiety shaking nausea and irritability. What Are the First 7 Days of An Alcohol Detox Like Day one

slide 10:

By the end of the first 24 hours of a detox a patient will begin experiencing some severe withdrawal symptoms. This is one of the main reasons why an alcohol self-detox at home is not a good idea. These symptoms include those from the first 12 hours and additional symptoms like disorientation hand tremors and seizures. Day two The day two experience is similar to the day one detox experience and the most painful symptoms will continue into the second day. During this time it is common for a patient to experience hallucinations and panic attacks as the body rids alcohol from its system. Day three to seven In the remaining days of the first week of alcohol detox a patient experiences different withdrawal symptoms that come and go. It is also the time when a patient is at most risk of life-threatening symptoms like delirium tremens. Therefore doctors will use medications that mimic the effects of alcohol so as to mitigate the withdrawal symptoms. The medications may also target co-occurring disorders or general discomfort. The medications are aimed at keeping the patient’s system in balance and avoiding major physiological upsets. In most cases the medications used include Librium Valium and Ativan. These drugs are used because they reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms and also prevent seizures that can result from alcohol withdrawal. Seizures are very common during the alcohol detox phase and anti-convulsion drugs such as Keppra are often used as well. The medications used in treating alcoholism are benzodiazepines and though they have been proven in treating and preventing certain symptoms of alcohol withdrawal a

slide 11:

recovering alcoholic should only use the medically recommended amounts of the drug since benzodiazepines are addictive substances in their own right. Symptoms Still Exist 7 Days After alcohol Detox By the end of the first week of the alcoholic detox a drug rehabs New Jersey patient will experience less withdrawal symptoms. Some symptoms will persist for a few weeks but those are minor and can be treated with medications. Even though the most serious withdrawal symptoms may have tapered off a patient can experience post-acute withdrawal syndrome defined as the prolonged symptoms of detox. The symptoms are like anxiety low energy insomnia and delayed reflexes. A patient can experience PAWS for several months or even a year. Now that the detox is over the patient needs therapies that can help his or her body get in sync with their mind. Treatment is not focused on achieving overall health. The Social Experience of the Alcohol Detox New Jersey Phase The detox period is brutal for an alcoholic and it’s recommended that individuals choose

slide 12:

from the top 10 drug rehabs New Jersey has to offer. but once the first few weeks are done the experience is quite pleasant only with mild withdrawal effects. As time passes by the recovering alcoholic needs to achieve stability in order to mitigate the chances of a relapse. The patient should join a support group and even have a sponsor because it is quite easy for them to fall off the wagon once again. The detox period will need an addict to give up their usual social circle. They will have to avoid interactions with other drug-addicted friends. It is also during the detox period that a patient requires a lot of support from family and friends if they are to successfully go through the process without relapsing. The alcohol detox process will affect the social life of a patient in two ways: One they will have to let go of their drinking circle of friends especially if they are on an outpatient program. Two they will have to form new support systems if the detox process is to have any meaning in their lives. Detox Facilities Help Determine Correct Addiction Recovery Treatment Centers Programs In addition the alcohol detox New Jersey or anywhere process will limit the patient in

slide 13:

some ways. For example if they choose an inpatient detox program they will be restricted to the premises of the facility which curtails their freedom. During the process there are limitations on what the patient can or cannot do. Alcohol detox is just the first step of treatment for people who are trying to overcome alcohol addiction. While riding the body of alcohol is good it does not cure alcoholism. It only clears the mind and heals the body so that the patient can pursue full treatment. The other aspects of treatment include counseling sessions therapy and support options. A patient cannot rely on the detox alone without seeking further treatment because they are more likely to relapse. Inpatient Vs. Intensive Outpatient Drug Rehabs New Jersey and Across the US The experience of alcohol detox is also determined by the type of program a patient chooses. Many centers spend a lot of time getting educated at addiction conferences to provide the best quality of behavioral health care. The two main options that a patient has to choose from are the: a. Inpatient programs: here the patient is provided with round the clock care to help through the withdrawal symptoms. The patient lives at the hospital detox clinic or

slide 14:

rehab center during the detox process. It is usually more expensive because it offers more services b. Intensive outpatient drug rehabs New Jersey rehabilitation programs: Here the patient gets treatment during the day but lives at home. The patient only visits the detox clinic for medication to help with the withdrawal symptoms. It is relatively cheaper compared to inpatient rehab. It is safer and more effective for people with mild or moderate alcohol withdrawal. Factors that influence the experience at the detox phase While the alcohol detox program is not pleasant there are things that a patient can do to help them have a different experience which they would not otherwise have had even they lacked them. Some factors that a patient should consider are: • The needs that they have for example medical or mental health conditions • Availability of a support network will determine whether a patient goes for the residential or outpatient program • The quality of treatment they are receiving from the detox program • The qualification and licensing of the staff at the detox program • Provision of aftercare to help them seek further treatment after the detox phase

slide 15:

Who needs an alcohol detox New Jersey or Anywhere in the US Alcohol detoxification is the natural process where the body tries to rid the system of waste products and toxins that come about from excessive long-term alcohol consumption. Alcoholism brings on destructive patterns in everyday life work and social situations. Alcoholics tend to have an impaired judgment which endangers relationships and increases the risk of physical harm. People who need to detox from alcohol include:

slide 16:

i. People who develop alcohol tolerance. These are people who find that the same amount of alcohol has a diminished effect than previously and they need more alcohol to achieve the same results ii. People with alcohol withdrawal symptoms. This is especially prevalent in heavy drinkers who may experience one or more withdrawal symptoms anywhere from several hours to few days after reducing intake. They experience anxiety hand tremors nausea insomnia rapid pulse increased sweating and hallucinations iii. People who drink alcohol to cover or avoid withdrawal iv. People who drink more alcohol in a shorter period of time or prolonged alcohol use v. People who try to quit alcohol without success vi. People who need more time to recover from hangovers vii. People who avoid certain social functions to hide their alcoholism or to indulge in heavy drinking without attracting notice viii. People who continue to consume alcohol even when it is aggravating health issues they may be having like ulcers or depression Before an alcoholic can admit that they have a problem their condition will have spiraled out of control because alcohol is socially acceptable. Friends and family must be involved in highlighting their need to seek treatment.

slide 17:

Opiate Detox New Jersey and US Drug Rehabs Options Opiate detox New Jersey addiction treatment options are much needed across the US. Opiates include a number of prescription drugs like codeine Dilaudid and tramadol. Usually people are opiates are often prescribed to people with pain but individuals who take these drugs in larger doses or for longer periods than initially prescribed have a high risk of becoming dependent. Opioid dependence makes a person feel that they need to continue using the drugs in order to function normally. Today painkillers may just be the most abused drugs after alcohol. This is why opiate detox drug rehabs New Jersey and the US are needed. As a matter of fact many of the overdose deaths reported in the State of New Jersey and in the U.S. are due to prescribed drugs rather than the expected illegal drugs. This is mainly because painkillers are legal and a person can easily get them from a pharmacy drug store or as over the counter drugs. People are now using opioids as a substitute for illegal drugs since they can easily acquire them.

slide 18:

The Withdrawal Experience Lessened by Opiate Detox New Jersey Addiction Treatment Centers Opiate withdrawal symptoms can be extremely intense and uncomfortable. An addict will start experiencing withdrawal once they suddenly stop using the drug or significantly reduce the amount they were taking. The withdrawal experience will depend on a number of factors including: • The type of painkiller being abused • The person’s established tolerance to the drug • The length of addiction • Whether they abused multiple substances • The mental and medical history of the patient

slide 19:

The withdrawal symptoms that a patient experiences are not life-threatening. They are flu- like such as fever sweating and vomiting. However the symptoms can still cause tremendous physical and psychological distress to the person suffering. The symptoms as so intense that people trying to end the drug use on their own may resort to using again to avoid the withdrawal process. Unfortunately the cycle of stopping and resuming makes it much more difficult to quit later on because it can spiral into uncontrollable abuse patterns. Medical Programs Provided for Opiate Detox New Jersey This explains why patients are advised to have an opiate detox in a medical detox program because they are structured safe environments that are designed to help guide the patients through the withdrawal process. Here patients receive help from doctors in order to

slide 20:

overcome their symptoms slowly easing them off an addictive drug until they are no longer physically dependent on it. In addition the patient will be prescribed some medications to reduce the severity of certain symptoms and curb cravings. When a patient decides to go ‘cold turkey’ and on their own they are putting their lives at risk. Quitting painkillers is difficult enough by itself and doing it alone is even more dangerous. Determining If You Need A Opiate Detox New Jersey Option The opiate withdrawal symptoms that a patient experiences during the detox phase can be mild or severe. It doesn’t matter if you are attending an opiate detox West Palm Beach or in California the symptoms never change. The symptoms are more severe in patients suffering from extensive drug abuse or addiction that is people who have consumed large doses of a substance over a significant period of time. The experience is further determined by: • The person’s current health and well-being • Any underlying mental or behavioral disorders

slide 21:

• Family history of drug dependence • Length and severity of the addiction • How the drug was administered An addict will start experiencing withdrawal symptoms within 24 hours after the last dose. These symptoms are like: • Agitation • Anxiety • Muscle spasms • Insomnia • Runny nose • Sweating • Abdominal cramps • Stomach aches • Diarrhea • Constricted pupils • Fluctuating blood pressure • Nausea • Tremors • Vomiting

slide 22:

How Long Does Detoxification Last Recommended by Drug Rehabs New Jersey a. The anticipatory heroin and opioid withdrawal stage This occurs within 3 to 4 hours after the last dose. It is marked by increased anxiety or fear related to oncoming symptoms of withdrawal. The anticipatory stage is also characterized by cravings and drug-seeking behavior b.

They may also experience flu-like symptoms such as nausea vomiting sweating and stomach aches. In addition cravings and drug-seeking behaviors continue to persist.

slide 23:

c. Full developed acute It occurs 1 to 3 days after the last dose. At this stage the withdrawal symptoms have reached their peak.

Post-Acute Opiate Withdrawal PAWS Symptoms Can be Helped by Opiate detox New Jersey It occurs up to 24 months after the last dose. The acute symptoms are no longer present at this stage but the patient experiences mood swings cravings drug dreams anxiety depression irritability insomnia and poor concentration. The patient is also susceptible to any environmental triggers that may encourage them to relapse. The opiate drug detox is just the first step to recovery because a patient can easily slip up from a trigger and go back to using. Painkillers can be highly addictive. Therefore doctors recommend that a patient goes for further treatment like inpatient rehabilitation where they may receive more treatment in the form of therapy and counseling.

slide 24:

What to Expect During 7 Days of Opiate Detox New Jersey Treatment Day 1 and 2 - In the first 48 hours of an opiate detox as experienced by drug rehabs New Jersey rehabilitation addiction treatment medical centers an addict will experience a peak in withdrawal symptoms. The symptoms begin becoming noticeable after around the eight- hour mark since the drug was last consumed. A patient will experience mild discomfort in the form of muscle pain. After 16 hours have passed addicts begin experiencing a range of discomforting withdrawal symptoms like insomnia diarrhea panic attacks and anxiety. By the 24 th hours a patient is experiencing the acute period of detoxification where they have an overwhelming sense of anxiety. He or she is unable to sleep and experiences severe diarrhea and hot and cold flushes. Day 3 4 and 5 - By the 72 nd hour at our drug rehabs New Jersey facility the worst withdrawal symptoms have passed which is encouraging for an addict. Unfortunately the withdrawal symptoms are yet to resolve fully so a patient is advised to eat plenty of nutritious foods and drink lots of water. Diarrhea and anxiety fade away but the patient will experience stomach pain shivers and vomiting.

slide 25:

By day six the acute detox phase has passed and a patient has to deal with the loss of appetite and mild insomnia and for some patients nausea. The mild symptoms linger for several weeks. After the first week of detox an addict is one step closer to recovery. Factors Influencing the Experience of an Opiate Detox Some opiate addicts have extremely unpleasant experiences during the detox period for a number of reasons. 1. Opiate tolerance The DEA says that opiate drugs can cause rapidly developing tolerance especially in chronic users. As the tolerance builds users will require higher and more frequent dosages of their drug of choice for that feeling of euphoria. Unfortunately the addict’s body will not develop tolerance to the side effects of opiates. This causes increasing damage to the body and distinct challenges during the detoxification period. Such a patient will experience sharp or intense withdrawal symptoms enduring cravings and high overdose risk if a relapse should occur. 2. Poly-drug use Opiates have a relaxing and sedating effect which makes people use them in combination with other drugs especially stimulants like cocaine to balance out they’re effects. Each of these drugs poses unique health risks after enduring use and will often be accompanied by distinct and possibly conflicting withdrawal symptoms. Poly-drug detoxes can cause life- threatening experiences and must be done under professional medical supervision.

slide 26:

Pain management issues with Drug and Alcohol Misuse Opiates are legitimately described for the alleviation of moderate or severe physical pain from chronic conditions or injuries. Many addicts have therefore learned to rely on them for pain management either from doctor prescriptions or self-medication. Now when a patient stops using the opiates they experience the ‘rebound’ effect where the pain their felt previously becomes worse and more excruciating due to the lowered pain thresholds. In addition opiate withdrawal symptoms can compound existing physical discomfort. 3. Co-occurring disorders Opiate abuse and addiction have caused self-medicating psychic wounds in some cases. Addicts with depression anxiety and other psychological disorders may rely on opiates as an emotional or psychological escape hatch. 4. Withdrawal symptom severity Opiate withdrawal symptoms not only cause cravings and mood disruptions but can also take place as the body adjusts to a drug-free environment. Pro-longed addictions and long those compounded by secondary physical or psychological issues require medical supervision during the detox process. The degree of medical intervention in the detox process will depend on the symptom count and severity drug of choice and the policies on medical detox of the recovery facility.

slide 27:

Alcohol and Opiate Detox Options Depending on the drug of choice and the length of addiction detoxification takes several forms and each has an experience of its own. One method of detoxification is the natural method. In this method the medications used are limited to over the counter medicines herbal remedies and occasional non-addictive prescriptions. The natural detoxification method allows the body to move through withdrawal without any assistance from unnecessary medications. It is usually a way to mitigate the chances of future relapse. For a person who does the natural detox the experience is much painful than for a patient who has a medically supervised detox. The medically supervised detox is the other type of detox. This detox process allows patients to be monitored for vital signs proper hydration and provision of medical professionals in case of medical detox. Medically supervised detox programs are similar to natural detox programs.

slide 28:

Medical Detox for Alcohol Opiates and Prescription Drugs The third type of detox method is medical detox. This refers to the use of targeted medications aimed at lowering cravings and withdrawal symptoms in patients who are detoxifying from opiate use. The medications range from methadone to buprenorphine and carry a little potential of addiction. The risk is mitigated by close supervision and carefully calibrated use. The last type of detox is rapid detox. This involves sedating the patient at the outset of detox and allowing them to “sleep” through the withdrawal phase and associated opiate cravings. While sedated patients are treated with targeted medications to hasten the detoxification process and manage cravings. Effects of Rapid Opiate Detox When patients wake up afterward they have a sense of mental clarity and close to none withdrawal symptoms or cravings. They don’t get to experience any effects of the withdrawal. Unfortunately the rapid detoxification process is opposed by many medical professionals as it may pose some danger and lead to grave health complications even to the point of fatality. Opiate detoxification is just the beginning step to full recovery. An opiate addict must then go for behavioral therapy group therapy and aftercare for them to completely recover and avoid the chances of relapsing. Otherwise the detox would be pointless if the patient does not pursue further treatment.

slide 29:

Intensive Outpatient Drug Rehabs New Jersey Recommendations When a person decides to get help from an addiction they are different rehab programs that they can choose from. Some of these programs are like: • Inpatient rehab programs: this is where the patient is admitted to a rehab facility during the period od recovery and they are monitored 24 hours a day • Outpatient drug rehabs New Jersey programs: in these programs a patient has scheduled visits to a rehab facility for several days a week where they receive treatment and go back home afterward. The visits are more frequent in the first months of addiction treatment and begin to reduce according to the doctor’s recommendations

slide 30:

• Gender-based addiction treatment programs: these are programs designed for a specific gender so as to create a space where women or men can help each other recover since they face almost the same challenges • Teen-based rehabilitation programs: these are programs designed for teenagers who are struggling with drug abuse. Since teenagers have different needs as adult addicts the rehab programs are structured in a way to cater to these needs • Holistic-based drug programs: these are programs that incorporate other programs beside addiction treatments. The programs are like yoga meditation and other programs that are target holistic recovery. • Dual-diagnosis drug rehabs New Jersey substance abuse treatment programs: these are programs that cater to the needs of addicts who are suffering from other recurring conditions beside an addiction. For example a patient could be suffering from schizophrenia as well as drug addiction. Such a patient needs treatment for both the schizophrenia and the addiction and therefore they would not fit in other types of treatment. • Other options that tie in include sober homes West Palm Beach New Jersey and California. Residential living facilities play a huge role in long-term recovery. By this stage individuals should be well on their way to long term recovery. They should reinforce everything you’ve learned in opiate and alcohol detox and in the intensive outpatient treatment program. • Public rehab programs: dual diagnosis drug rehabs New Jersey addiction treatment programs are tied into many public programs and Universities to lower costs. This partnership assists many in getting better quality medical care.

slide 31:

Understanding Intensive Outpatient Drug Rehabs New Jersey and Across the US Intensive outpatient drug rehabs New Jersey addiction treatment programs are often referred to as IOPs. They are treatment programs that are used to address addictions depression eating disorders or other dependencies that don’t require round the clock supervision. IOPs enable patients to continue with their normal day to day lives in a way that residential programs do not. Residential programs require patients to be on site but clients in intensive outpatient programs can live at home. Sometimes IOPs can be used in conjunction with inpatient programs as a way of helping patients to adapt back into their families and communities more smoothly and seamlessly. In such situations the programs are designed to establish support mechanisms help with relapse management and to provide patients with coping strategies. IOP Drug Rehabs in New Jersey the Second Stage of Addiction Treatment Addiction treatment is provided in several stages as set by the American Society of Addiction Medicine. The five levels are defined as part of a continuum of care and they are:

slide 32:

Level 0.5: early intervention services Level 1: outpatient services Level 2: intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization services Level 3: residential or inpatient treatment services Level 4: medically managed intensive treatment services The Experience at Drug Rehabs New Jersey Intensive Outpatient Program The experience a patient receives from the intensive outpatient program will depend on which facility they go for the program because every facility and provider has a different experience. In general the IOP consists of 10 to 12 hours of group and individual therapy each week. Patients are also encouraged to participate in a 12-step program. IOP sessions usually occur on-site at the drug rehabs near me New Jersey facility. However there are some options being developed where individuals can participate in online programs. The online programs will be useful especially for people who live in remote locations or in towns where adequate treatment services are not available.

slide 33:

In the intensive outpatient program a patient will usually visit a facility three to four times a week and for three hours at a time. The specifics for each IOP will vary from facility to facility. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration most programs require 9 to 20 hours of participation every week. Since IOPs offer a higher level of care than standard outpatient programs they require more time for treatment every week. The Daily Experience at an IOP Drug Rehabs New Jersey The routine at an intensive outpatient program every day is made of times of group therapy individual therapy and skills development sessions. Well the first day is time for the patient to get acquainted with the program the staff and the environment. By day two

slide 34:

a patient is accustomed and thrown into the scheduled program. So there are times for group therapy individual therapy and sessions for developing their skills. Day 1 to Day 90 When Attending Drug Rehabs New Jersey Group therapy Group therapy is actually the core of most intensive outpatient programs. This is because studies have shown that group participation is as effective as individual therapy. Participating in a group session supports an individual in a number of ways like: • Patients have the chance to enhance their communication skills and a new resource for socialization. Such socialization is important especially for recovering addicts because their previous socialization was often with those who use drugs or alcohol. • Patient have access to an environment where people in similar situations provide support comfort and honest feedback • Participation in group therapy reinforces healthful ways of interacting and provides a safe space that is vital to recovery efforts • Patients who are farther along in recovery can provide valuable assistance and empathy to those who are early in the recovery process • Group therapy provides a forum for therapists and group leaders to pass on important information and teach new skills and guide patients • Groups provide an environment to witness more positive behavior associated with the recovery and to practice new modes of dealing with addiction

slide 35:

There are different types of group sessions which a patient can participate in so as to address a range of treatments and skills required for a successful recovery from addiction. The variety of different groups that IOPs are made up of are: Skills-development Groups for Substance Abuse Treatment These are designed to help clients practice specific behaviors in a safe setting. a. Psycho-educational groups These groups provide emotional support and the opportunity for a patient to learn about addiction dependence and the consequences of abuse. In addition the groups focus on developing problem-solving skills and techniques for altering ineffective belief systems b. Refusal training groups These groups allow patients to participate in role-playing exercises where they can rehearse how to effectively handle invitations to use the substance they trying to break free from c. Relapse prevention groups These are groups that help clients to identify triggers and high-risk situations and to develop techniques to avoid and manage them. Family groups for Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Centers These groups focus on ways the patient and his or her family can support each other. In the groups participants will also learn about the effects of addition on relationships and how best to deal with those challenges.

slide 36:

The experience will be different depending on how the group participation is conducted and how the groups are created but generally collective participation underlies group therapy. Such an experience is important for a patient because they get to know that they are not alone in battling their addiction and that they can find help and comfort from others who are going through the same thing. Individual Substance Abuse Addiction Treatment Therapy Intensive outpatient programs will also give patients access to individual therapy. Individual therapy is important but not the main form of treatment in IOPs. During individual therapy patients get to focus on the pressing problems that are caused by their addiction and their efforts to remain abstinent. In addition patients dig deeper into the work done in group therapy spending more time on individual issues. Some patients may not be comfortable talking in a group setting. Individual therapy gives them the space to talk about more personal matters. IOPs usually schedule individual therapy sessions on a weekly basis especially early in treatment. A patient gets to establish a close and honest relationship based on mutual trust and commitment to recovery with their therapist. Complementary Therapies for Drug Rehabilitation IOPs will also offer alternative therapies to complement their traditional offerings. For example they may offer treatments like art therapy music therapy adventure therapy and equine-assisted therapy. Such treatments allow patients to tap into nonverbal ways of healing. The sessions will be led by therapists who are trained in a particular area and take place in a group setting. Mostly these sessions are scheduled on every other afternoon.

slide 37:

Mostly these sessions are scheduled on every other afternoon Support groups Intensive outpatient programs recommend patients to participate in peer support groups. For the better substance abuse treatment centers or drug Rehabs New Jersey Options they will include Support groups with their a href"https://www.behavioralhealthnetworkresources.com/services/drug- rehab-marketing-solutions/"drug rehab marketing/a. No wonder most IOPs host such meetings like Alcoholics Anonymous on their premises. This makes it easier for patients to attend when they are there for their treatment sessions. Support groups Intensive outpatient programs recommend patients to participate in peer support groups. For the better substance abuse treatment centers they will include Support groups with their drug rehab marketing. No wonder most IOPs host such meetings like Alcoholics Anonymous on their premises. This makes it easier for patients to attend when they are there for their treatment sessions. The IOP experience is an all-round experience where patients not only receive personal care but also group care. It is an experience of building new friendships and establishing support systems that will go a long way to help them.

slide 38:

Intensive outpatient programs vs. residential treatment The experience in IOPs and residential treatment is quite different beginning with the fact that residential treatment programs require patients to stay within the premises of the facility for the duration of the treatment. This is why residential programs are not so feasible because people often have family or work commitments that prevent them from entering fulltime care. For such people it is simply impossible for them to leave their lives behind for an extended period of time. IOPs are a great alternative because a patient can still get intensive treatment while residing at home. However the patients who seek IOP treatment must have a safe environment and encouraging family members who provide support so that they don’t experience triggering moments that can cause a relapse. A patient who does not have this support system should definitely opt for residential treatment. Otherwise it would be a waste of time because they would be constantly confronted with triggers for relapse.
