Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Drug rehab centers, like 449 Recovery, offer various levels of care to treat drug and alcohol addiction. Our outpatient addiction services include PHP, IOP, and traditional outpatient treatment.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides a comprehensive level of care for individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. In PHP, clients typically attend treatment sessions during the day, often resembling the structure of a hospital program, with access to medical and psychiatric support as well as intensive therapy and counseling. This level of care offers a higher degree of support than traditional outpatient programs while still allowing individuals to return home or to a supportive living environment in the evenings. PHP programs focus on addressing the immediate needs of clients while equipping them with the tools and coping strategies necessary for long-term recovery.

Intensive Outpatient Program

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a flexible treatment option that provides individuals with structured therapy and support while allowing them to maintain their daily routines. In an IOP, clients attend therapy sessions several days a week for several hours each day. These sessions may include individual therapy, group counseling, family therapy, and educational workshops focusing on addiction and relapse prevention. IOPs offer a balance between the intensive support of a residential or PHP program and the independence of traditional outpatient care, making it an ideal choice for individuals who require more support than traditional outpatient services but do not need round-the-clock supervision.

Outpatient Treatment

Traditional outpatient treatment offers ongoing support and therapy for individuals in addiction recovery while allowing them to continue living at home and attending work or school. In traditional outpatient programs, clients typically attend therapy sessions on a regular basis, ranging from weekly to biweekly meetings with a therapist or counselor. These sessions may focus on various aspects of addiction recovery, including relapse prevention, coping skills, and addressing underlying psychological issues contributing to substance abuse. Traditional outpatient treatment provides individuals with the flexibility to integrate recovery into their daily lives while still receiving the support and guidance needed to maintain sobriety and work toward long-term wellness.

Behavioral Therapy for Addiction

Behavioral therapy is a group of therapies designed to help clients replace harmful behaviors by changing their beliefs and attitudes. It provides them with the skills and confidence to respond to stress and triggers in a healthy way. By changing patterns of thinking and behaving in relation to substance use, clients can lead a successful long-term recovery.

Behavioral therapies for addiction encompass a variety of approaches aimed at modifying harmful behaviors, addressing underlying issues, and promoting long-term recovery.

In 12-step facilitation, individuals participate in meetings modeled after the 12-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous or similar fellowships. These meetings provide a supportive environment where individuals share their experiences, receive encouragement, and work through the steps of recovery with the guidance of a facilitator. Sessions typically involve group discussions, readings from recovery literature, and sharing personal stories of addiction and recovery. The focus is on surrendering to the addiction, seeking support from a higher power or fellowship, and making amends to oneself and others.

Motivational interviewing is a client-centered approach that focuses on exploring and resolving ambivalence toward change. In motivational interviewing sessions, therapists use open-ended questions, reflective listening, and affirmations to help individuals clarify their goals, values, and reasons for change. The therapist collaborates with the client to identify potential barriers to change and develop a plan for achieving their goals. Motivational interviewing sessions are typically structured around four key principles: expressing empathy, developing discrepancy, rolling with resistance, and supporting self-efficacy. The therapist works to evoke the client’s motivation for change rather than imposing it from the outside.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a widely used therapeutic approach that focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors associated with addiction. In CBT sessions, individuals learn to recognize triggers for substance use, challenge irrational beliefs about addiction, and develop coping strategies to manage cravings and avoid relapse. Therapists may use various techniques such as cognitive restructuring, behavioral experiments, and role-playing to help clients develop more adaptive ways of thinking and behaving. CBT sessions are typically structured, goal-oriented, and involve homework assignments to practice skills learned in therapy.

Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) incorporates mindfulness meditation and awareness practices to help individuals cultivate present-moment awareness and cope with stressors without turning to substances. In MBSR sessions, individuals learn mindfulness techniques such as meditation, body scanning, and mindful movement to develop a non-judgmental awareness of their thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations. Therapists guide participants through various mindfulness exercises and encourage them to apply mindfulness principles to everyday life, including managing cravings and coping with difficult emotions. MBSR can be delivered in a group format or individually and is often integrated into comprehensive addiction treatment programs.

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) combines mindfulness techniques with strategies for promoting psychological flexibility and values-based living. In ACT sessions, individuals learn to accept difficult thoughts and emotions without judgment while committing to actions aligned with their values and goals. Therapists help clients identify their core values and develop strategies for taking meaningful action in line with those values, even in the face of discomfort or uncertainty. ACT sessions may involve mindfulness exercises, experiential activities, metaphors, and role-playing to facilitate acceptance and commitment to change. ACT emphasizes the importance of self-compassion, acceptance, and willingness to experience discomfort as part of the journey to recovery.

Individual and group therapy are common modalities used in addiction treatment to provide support, education, and skill-building. In individual therapy, clients work one-on-one with a therapist to explore personal issues, set goals, and develop strategies for coping with addiction. Therapy sessions may focus on topics such as trauma, family dynamics, co-occurring mental health disorders, and relapse prevention.

Group therapy brings together individuals with similar experiences to share support, insights, and encouragement in a structured setting facilitated by a therapist. Group therapy sessions may include psychoeducation, skill-building exercises, process-oriented discussions, and peer support. Both individual and group therapy offer valuable opportunities for self-reflection, interpersonal connection, and personal growth in the context of alcohol treatment and addiction recovery.

What Are Substances?

Substances are psychoactive compounds that can negatively impact a person’s well-being. The abuse of substances can lead to serious health problems like addiction, regardless if they are legal or illegal. Medications that have been prescribed by doctors for legitimate reasons like anxiety or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can also cause harm if misused.

Risk Factors for Substance Abuse

The development of addiction can be influenced by a combination of biological, social, and environmental factors. Genetic predisposition and the interaction with one’s environment contribute significantly, accounting for 40-60% of addiction risk. Mental health disorders, particularly when co-occurring with substance use disorder (SUD), amplify vulnerability. Childhood trauma, including neglect, abuse, and chronic stress, can also heighten the likelihood of substance abuse as individuals seek coping mechanisms. Moreover, environmental factors such as early exposure to drugs, lack of parental supervision, and community poverty contribute to increased susceptibility to addiction.

Factors contributing to addiction risk:

  • Genetic predisposition
