The most important part and long lasting effects of the successful treatment including controlling of the acute condition (stabilization, detoxification, control the withdrawal and blockade) is the rehab therapy. We believe that the overall recovery process is directly related to the success of the psycho-social rehabilitation.
Our goal is to help our patients achieve complete rehabilitation, to help them reintegrate into normal life so that they can resume well-adjusted living.
We also offer and strongly support FAMILY based psychotherapy. We help correct pathological family dynamics which are identified as important factors affecting the individual with addiction.
At NaltrexZone clinic we use both aspects of psychotherapy – Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and the Motivational Interview.
Cognitive Behavioral therapy assists the patient to recognize (or bring to consciousness) the multiple and often concealed emotional traps and thoughts which can lead to a relapse.
In its most basic form, the Motivational Interview prepares patients for changing their behavioral patterns by facilitating the resolution of their ambivalence (indecisiveness) related to abstinence.
Rehabilitation encompasses a sequence of social interventions which allow this improvement on a broad spectrum of psychological, social and professional aspects. It is important to begin with teaching effective family communication, encouraging involvement in hobbies and sports, practicing relaxation techniques, and assistance with school work, job applications, etc.
Treatment is affected by objective life’s hardships, such as the social stigma surrounding addiction which makes finding a job and social integration difficult. At the same time patient has to maintain family function, schoolwork, keep in step with peers, physical well-being, etc. That is a very difficult task for an individual whose main mechanism of solving life difficulties was to “escape”.
Within the first year of abstinence, the individual is most susceptible to relapse. It is for this reason that the initiation of psychotherapy begins as early in the treatment as possible and must maintain a steady schedule, during this period.
