Usе оf thеrаріеs:

Whеn usеd аs а раrt оf аn оvеrаll rесоvеrу рrоgrаm, therapies have been рrоvеn to be ехtrеmеlу helpful. Some common therapies offered at SLO Recovery centers include:

Individual therapy:

It involves only a patient and his therapist. The therapist can help patient with a lot of things. For example:

  • How to talk to a loved one about his condition and help them understand his condition better
  • How to endure the pain from withdrawal
  • How to stay positive throughout the process
  • How to replace negative thoughts with positive ones
  • How to stay determined
  • How to start a new life after recovery
  • How to resist urges to relapse

Group therapy:

The group therapy involves a number of patients going through the same pain. It can be immensely encouraging to listen to success stories of other patients and how they coped with negative thoughts. Some of the other goals of group therapy include teaching the patients:

  • Dealing with psychological issues
  • Resisting cravings
  • Managing stressful life situations
  • Staying positive during the times of distress
  • Establishing relationships again
  • Handling negative thoughts successfully
  • Avoiding drug in the times of difficulty
  • Reestablishing social skills
  • Managing medications
  • Dealing with traumatic life situations

Family/spouse therapy:

It involves the patient and his family or spouse. It can:

  • Help the family to understand the condition of the addict in a better way.
  • Make the process of communication among the patient and his family/spouse easier.
  • Improve the relationship between the addict and his family/spouse.

Drug addiction ends up ruining whole life of an addict. He loses his friends, family and career. Reestablishing everything from scratch can be a difficult task and it is not possible without the help of addict’s family. Behavioral therapies can help a great deal to motivate the patient and increase the awareness of his family about his condition.

Treatment of co-occurring conditions:

Co-occurring conditions is a term that is used to refer to a psychological condition/mental illness co-existing with drug addiction. It is highly likely for a drug addict to have an underlying undiagnosed psychological condition. Studies suggest that people coping with a mental illness such as depression are more likely to become addicted to drugs. It is not possible to cure the addiction without curing the mental illness. So diagnosing such conditions and treating them is a significant part of any rehabilitation program. Addiction as well as mental illness needs to be treated simultaneously at a rehabilitation center.  If such conditions are left unattended, the chances of a relapse are significantly increased.
