Uses The Matrix Model for relapse prevention skills group therapy, providing up to 20 weeks of 2-hour, weekly group therapy sessions, providing the client with practical education about how to strengthen and maintain sobriety, and continue to build sober social connections which support a totally abstinent lifestyle. Group therapy is supported by weekly individual case management. This group is appropriate for a client who has already established at least several months of abstinent sobriety, and has already received and embraced education about addiction and has begun to establish a personal program of recovery.
Medically Assisted Detox:
Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one\'s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient\'s individual requirements.
Sober Living Homes:
Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who\'ve just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.
Uses The Matrix Model and other Motivational Interviewing materials and techniques to help clients who are in the \"contemplation\" or very early \"preparation\" stage of change, as they contemplate the costs of developing and achieving a start at a totally abstinent lifestyle. This groups meets twice weekly for 1 1/2 hour sessions, and is targeted at the client who may not have necessarily achieved, or even attempted, sobriety at the time of engagement, but is willing to work with a case manager and group facilitator to address barriers in his/her life that have motivated AOD use and discouraged attempting sobriety. NIOP Early Intervention has no time limit, and can continue as long as the client is willing to engage.
Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn\'t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
