Substance Use Disorder is a progressive illness, and if left untreated, it can be life-threatening. It’s up to each individual to make the difficult choice to get treatment and commit to rehabilitation. Admitting there is a problem and reaching out for help is the first step, but it is not easy. For some, acknowledging the problem is the hardest part.
Once a person admits there is a problem and decides to seek treatment, new challenges often present themselves. While this commitment is difficult, making the choice to get addiction treatment is the best way to find hope, rebuild your life, and overcome the illness.
Common Issues Treated
In many cases, the desire to take drugs or use alcohol is only part of the equation, as a person’s mental health is usually an underlying issue. For that reason, our alcohol and drug rehabilitation program addresses the multiple challenges that may come with a substance addiction:
- Alcohol and Drug Abuse
- Depression/Mood Swings
- Urges and Cravings
- Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms
- Relapse/Lack of Motivation
Components of Chemical Dependency Treatment
It’s important to establish a foundation for recovery by revealing the culture of addiction and the potential consequences that come with it. At the same time, the family needs encouragement and education on how to better act as a support system for the person struggling with the illness. All of the patients at Aurora Charter Oak Behavioral Health Care receive treatment that helps them not only understand their addiction but also sets them up for continued recovery in the future.
Aurora Charter Oak Behavioral Health Care offers a specialized treatment approach for those affected by addiction to alcohol or drugs. Individualized treatment and recovery plans are “family-inclusive” and designed to guide patients to a healthy and sober lifestyle. Our comprehensive program can include:
- Inpatient Rehabilitation
- Intensive Outpatient Program
It is not surprising that many people who are struggling with Substance Use Disorder may have experienced some form of trauma in their lives. Our approach to treatment is to address a patient’s underlying trauma to get to the root of their challenges. Trauma-informed care is embedded in all that we do.
Clinical Expertise For Chemical Dependency
Qualifications matter. Our Substance Use and Addiction programs are primarily staffed with Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors (LADCs) with advanced, Master’s-level education. Their training provides a strong background in both substance use and underlying mental health issues, which can result in a more rounded treatment experience for the patient.
Detoxification and Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs
Aurora Charter Oak Behavioral Health Care’s Substance Use and Detoxification Inpatient Program offers a specialized drug treatment approach for those affected by addiction to alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, and THC. Our services are shaped by the unique needs of each patient, as well as their family members and loved ones. The program is designed with flexibility to include both traditional and modern approaches to care, which combine to help each patient reach their maximum potential for a lasting outcome of recovery and overall wellness. Comprehensive addiction treatment includes:
- Addiction Cycle Education
- Stress Management
- Group Therapy
- Individual Therapy
- Family Therapy
- Coping Skill Building
Intensive Outpatient Program
Not everyone affected by addiction needs inpatient hospital care. Others may have completed an inpatient program and now need to continue weekly supportive treatment following their return home. Our Intensive Outpatient Program provides a high level of care without hospitalization. Participants live at home and spend weekends with their families while getting the weekly treatment they need in a convenient, comfortable, and secure setting.
The program is highly structured, utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy and other evidence-based best treatment practices. Patients are kept busy and educated on how to build life skills and repair relationships with family members and friends.
Some of the features of our Intensive Outpatient Program include:
- Comprehensive assessment and evaluation, including the impact of triggers, stressors, emotions, feelings, and psychological, social, and spiritual needs in order to obtain recovery
- Clinical expertise featuring a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor with more than 20 years of experience
- Individualized treatment and goal-setting
- Personal dignity, reducing shame, and infusing hope in recovery
- Facilitation of personal growth, recovery, and personal insight
- Encouragement of family support and recovery
- Education regarding diagnosis, urges/cravings, relapse prevention, the cycle of addiction, and post-acute withdrawal
- Continuation of care via local support groups
Depending on the level of care required, outpatient treatment for addiction may last four weeks or more, but as progress is made, schedules can be adjusted to meet each individual’s needs.
