Individual and Group Therapy
In individual therapy, a client meets privately with a therapist to acquire self-knowledge, insight and a stronger sense of identity. Therapists are responsible for creating the frame of therapy: where and when therapy will be conducted, what the responsibilities of the client and professional are, which approach to therapy will be used and how progress will be measured.
The therapist and the client work together to tailor a treatment plan based on their mutual comfort and expertise. Some types of therapy are more open-ended and allow patients to share whatever comes to mind. These therapies help increase insight into how a patient’s past experiences affect their present behaviors. Other types of therapy examine how emotions or beliefs influence behavior or help patients become less judgmental about their own thoughts.
Group therapy is a form of counseling that brings people with common interests together. In group therapy, people learn new ways to cope with their problems. They also work on their communication skills and learn to help each other. Group therapy has helped many people who have had problems with drug or alcohol abuse and other mental health conditions.
It is the job of the group therapy leader to make sure that everyone feels safe and supported. This support encourages participants to express themselves honestly and share their successes as well as their setbacks. Because all recovering addicts are in recovery together, clients can rely on each other for encouragement during difficult times.
At Lilac Recovery Center, individual and group therapy is offered as a tool that our clients can use to help them better understand their addiction as well as any other underlying issues.
Co-Occurring Disorders Education and Support
When a person experiences both substance use disorders and mental illness, co-occurring disorders have been diagnosed. It is common for a mental disorder to go undiagnosed until a patient has already begun abusing substances. Co-occurring disorders often result from overlapping factors such as brain deficits, genetic vulnerabilities, and early exposure to trauma; these are reasons that the conditions can occur separately or concurrently.
Simply treating the chemical addiction is not enough. It’s imperative that both the mental health issue and the addiction are treated simultaneously in order for the individual to find success in overcoming a substance abuse problem. Here at Lilac Recovery Center we work to address both co-occurring disorders so you have the best chance of long term success.
Medication Assisted Treatment
Weaning off drugs or alcohol can be unpleasant, both mentally and physically. Withdrawal comes with many uncomfortable symptoms, such as headache, nausea, vomiting, shakiness, and fatigue. Some withdrawal symptoms, like seizures, can be life threatening. Medication-Assisted Treatment can help ease withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, and encourage long-term lifestyle changes that help sustain sobriety.
Medication-Assisted Treatment combines the use of behavioral therapies with FDA-approved medications. Research shows that the combination of these two interventions can successfully treat those who experience substance use disorders. Medication assisted recovery takes a “whole patient” approach to treatment and helps sustain recovery in those who struggle with addiction.
Our MAT program works with the harm reduction model of medical care and, along with our other clinical and therapeutic care, empowers individuals with the tools necessary to sustain recovery.
Patients with acute pain usually receive the same medications to treat their pain as people without a history of substance abuse. The problems arise when individuals with chronic pain seek pain relief medications, because they are more likely to become dependent on them.
Everyone is recovering from something. Our pain management program was developed to help patients build confidence in believing they can regain function and recover. We are an evidence-based multidisciplinary recovery program that offers behavioral medicine, medication management, detox, nutrition and recovery based holistic services all under one roof. Lilac Recovery Center is not only about addiction, mental health, and pain – our program was designed to help each patient as an individual. Here there are no labels, just caring people who have a plan to get each patient back to their best.
While we like to think we are in control of our lives, substance use disorders can get the best of us. Awareness of this reality should inspire humility when entering into treatment. Treatment offers a chance to take back control of your life. Without vigilance and adherence to aftercare plans, relapse is very likely. The necessary tools to avoid relapse are not immediately effective in changing deep-seated behavior, but with time, sobriety will become second nature.
Recovery is a journey that unfolds over time. There are likely going to be bumps in the road, but these should not be viewed as failure. Instead, challenges should be seen as obstacles that can be overcome. An ironclad relapse prevention plan can help minimize those challenges.
We work with each individual to ensure you have the tools you need to cope with triggers and avoid a possible relapse.
Aftercare Planning and Support
After treatment, people who’ve struggled with drug addiction may still face a number of systemic obstacles to their sobriety, including difficulty finding a job or housing. Stress and worry can also be triggers for drug use, and navigating the legal system can be distressing. Aftercare programs can help patients access the support they need to overcome these hurdles and live a drug-free life.
Our aftercare support offers each individual their own highly tailored plan that will address triggers, stress, and cravings and how to cope. Recovering individuals may enroll in a variety of aftercare programs, where they can participate in activities, attend groups, and access resources designed to help them cope with challenges that may arise post-treatment.
At Lilac Recovery Center we encourage you to become active in your recovery by teaching you the tools and techniques that will help you to maintain your sobriety well beyond your stay with us.
