Although addiction is complicated, it is treatable. Unfortunately, there is no single, one-size-fits-all treatment for addiction. Each individual’s substance use disorder is unique. Therefore, an effective drug addiction treatment program must have a variety of treatment programs and therapies at the ready. In this way, patients can be best served by having as many of their needs met as possible.

At the heart of a drug addiction treatment program are counselors and therapists focused on the patient and less on the substance they abuse. Working with a patient to find out what forms of treatment and therapy would work best for them is the hallmark of comprehensive, collaborative care. The treatment patients receive needs to adjust to their progress and their needs. Thus, Integrative Life Center offers a spectrum of care. For example, we offer the following treatment programs:

  • Residential Treatment: Here, patients live as they get round the clock supervision and support. Typically, a residential program lasts at least 30 days.
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): Patients in this program receive care at our facility but return home afterward. It is designed as a stepdown from residential care but with the same level of structure and attention.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): Some patients don’t require 24-hour care and have to structure their treatment around work and family responsibilities. In IOP, patients still get the same quality of care but in a condensed form around their schedule, usually either in the day or evening.
  • Aftercare: Once treatment is complete, patients may still need help adjusting back to their everyday routines. Our aftercare makes sure patients have the resources they need when they experience triggers or have difficulty applying the coping mechanisms they learn in treatment. This can come in the form of group therapy programs, community support, or alumni programs.

Therapy Programs

Using a combination of tradition and alternative therapies, the counselors and therapists in a drug addiction treatment program can craft a plan to best suit the patient. For some, talk therapy like cognitive-behavioral therapy or dialectical behavior therapy can be quite effective. However, others may need more active forms of treatment. For these patients, experiential therapy or adventure therapy with its focus on activity and physicality may be the answer. No matter what combination of therapies patients and their professional care providers settle upon, the work looks to confront issues underlying one’s turn to drugs, how to recognize and overcome triggers, and how to make sobriety lasting.
