Comprehensive drug rehab is available in Manchester, NH.
Substance Abuse Care Treatment’s addiction clinicians and staff have the experience and dedication to assist drug users who want to break the cycle of addiction and de-stigmatize it. Substance dependency has been acknowledged by the medical community as a serious disorder and Substance Abuse Care Treatment’s top-notch professionals in Manchester, NH, specialize in drug treatments that provide each of our patients with the highest-level of care. The first step to recovery is detoxification. Depending on what drugs are being used and how often, there are two options for detox: medically supervised withdrawal or social detoxification. In social detoxification, patients are not kept apart in institution-like rooms while they detox. Instead, they are encouraged to live alongside and socialize with others in recovery. This way, they are ready to live with each other and work with other people in recovery when they enter a rehab program. It’s important to remember that detox is only the first step in reaching long-term recovery. To succeed in living a substance-free life, patients are urged to enter a rehab program immediately after detox.
Substance Abuse Care Treatment designs rehabilitation plans to match patient’s personal needs. This provides the best opportunity for success. While in rehab, patients withdraw from drug dependency; participate in various sorts of counseling and behavioral programs; analyze their reasons for using substances; and discover ways to avoid relapses and temptation. A unit of recovery experts is responsible for the many facets of recovery, such as assessment, medical care, counseling, life-skills training, drug and alcohol testing, treatment of psychological disorders and emotional conditions, and family education and counseling. The center’s residential program mixes the best aspects of inpatient and outpatient care with around the clock supervision. In addition, it provides patients with the tools needed to integrate successfully back into society.
What Is Substance Abuse?
People with substance use disorder develop a physical and psychological dependence on drugs and alcohol.
- Physical dependency happens when recurring substance use disturbs the means by which nerve cells in the brain communicate, so that the only way to trigger pleasure-giving brain chemicals is to use drugs.
- Psychological dependency, which can take longer to develop, develops when the addict constantly worries about not being able to use drugs to feel good or normal again.
Both physical and psychological dependence are part of substance use disorder, and they must be handled together as part of a comprehensive rehab plan. Our treatment centers have the personnel, expertise and desire needed to successfully help individuals struggling with drug addiction. Our treatment programs are so effective because they include:
Detox for different substance addictions
Fear of a painful withdrawal can scare addicted people away from getting the help they need. While it’s true that some substances do result in difficult withdrawals, that’s not the case for every drug. But even if you are addicted to a substance that causes painful withdrawals symptoms, going through medically supervised detox can help ease the worst of the experience. Health-care specialists will choose whether medically supervised or social detoxification is right for you after evaluating the type of drugs being used, length of use, age and the psychological and physical state of the patient. Medically supervised withdrawal is prescribed for individuals who are addicted to prescription or pharmaceutical pain medications, barbiturates or sedatives, as well as opioids such as heroin, OxyContin or codeine. The withdrawal symptoms for those drugs include hallucinations, tremors, seizures and higher blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature. If a patient falls in this category, they are required to go through an inpatient detox cycle. They will be put under medical supervision 24 hours a day. Also, they will be provided with special medication prescribed by professionals to help alleviate some of the pain.
Social detoxification is intended for those who are expected to experience mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms due to use of such substances as marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and occasional opioid and alcohol use. During this type of detox, patient health is supervised by nurses and counselors who also try to help them get through cravings without using medicine. Typically, patients who use stimulants such as amphetamines, methamphetamines, cocaine and Ritalin have comparatively milder symptoms that can be endured with emotional support from family, loved ones and therapists. However, it’s not uncommon for habitual stimulant users to require medication in order to avert suicidal feelings, suicide attempts, paranoid delusions and psychosis. Another difference between medically supervised and social detox is that those in social detoxification are encouraged to live alongside and socialize with others in recovery. This way, they are ready to live with each other and work with other people in recovery when they enter a rehab program.
Drug Addiction Has Two Faces
Addiction comes in two forms: physical dependency and psychological dependency. When a person is physically dependent on drugs his body will go into withdrawal and nerve cells that control pleasure are disturbed. Psychological dependency happens when addicts believe they need the drug to feel happy or normal and not getting the substance causes great stress and anxiety.
Our treatment programs are so effective because they include:
- Group and individual counseling.
- Structured physical activities.
- Access to the 12-step community and other recovery options.
- A professional and supportive aftercare staff.
- Beautiful, luxurious reasonably priced living accommodations.
Our programs are designed for each patient’s personal needs in order to provide the best opportunity for success. Unlike the limited treatment options available at other facilities, we make use of a wide number of fact-based, healthy, reasonably priced treatments that satisfy the various needs of all our patients.
What Is Drug Rehab Treatment?
In rehab or rehabilitation, patients withdraw from their drug of dependency, participate in various sorts of counseling and behavioral programs to help them cope with their addiction, analyze their reasons for using substances and discover ways to avoid relapses and temptation.
A unit of recovery experts is responsible for the many different facets of recovery, such as:
- Life-skills Training
- Drug and Alcohol Testing
- Relapse Prevention Training
- Introduction to Self-help and Support Groups
- Family Education and Counseling
- Follow-up Care
- Treatment of Psychological Disorders
- Treatment of Emotional Conditions
- Medical Care
Depending on the person’s history, various degrees of rehab are available. The rehabilitation plan for a person with a few years of sobriety who has just relapsed could be different to that of a person who has been actively using for many years. We take all of these factors into consideration.
Outpatient treatment generally takes place in health clinics, counselor’s offices, neighborhood health centers or in residential programs with outpatient services. A patient at an outpatient care facility typically stays at home and drives to the rehabilitation facility to get daily therapy.
As inpatient treatment becomes less available, these facilities are shifting their focus to medically supervised detoxification. Patients are urged to proceed directly to rehab if they first require the detox services of intervention addiction services.
Partial Hospitalization treatment mixes inpatient and outpatient facilities, which is the type of program that we provide. Patients live in residential homes and are transported to treatment daily. Patients who take part in this type of treatment are more about to adjust to life after treatment.
