Co-Occurring Disorder & Substance Abuse

ABTRS can connect you with life-changing treatment. We can help you find master’s level therapists who give their patients the best chance for success. Through ABTRS, you can have the opportunity to have a comprehensive evaluation for co-occurring disorders while being treated for a drug and alcohol addiction. Not many treatment facilities can treat major depression, bipolar disorder, or post traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) while receiving substance abuse treatment.

We recognize that you may be suffering from an undiagnosed mental health disorder. Those who do often develop a dependence on substances like alcohol, heroin, or marijuana to cope with their symptoms. This destructive behavior of self-medicating with drugs and alcohol may appear to allow the individual to feel normal or cope with life’s hardships.

In many cases, the mental disorder contributed to the depth of the addiction. In others, the traumatic experiences commonly associated with drug abuse influenced the mental health disorder. What really matters to ABT is their quality of life is being corrupted by their growing addiction and we have the skilled staff, knowledge, and passion to provide the treatment needed.

ABTRS can connect you with quality levels of care that result in long-term sobriety. A Better Today Recovery Services will help you find patient-focused with comprehensive treatment that properly evaluates each patient.

Patient-Focused Treatment: The Patient Driven Privilege System

ABTRS understands that many people who go to treatment may not go willingly, may not want to listen because they do not think they have a problem, or may only be attending treatment due to a court order. That is why we feel it is so important to connect you with client-focused treatment that emphasizes in individualized treatment plans.

This initial negative perspective hinders progress and causes the person to struggle with the healing process. Instead of throwing our hands up and chalking them up as a lost cause, we motivate them, give them incentives that encourage growth, and give them goals, real tangible goals, that they can set for themselves and achieve if they improve their attitude.

Some inpatient treatment centers give patients the opportunity to earn rewards by meeting certain requirements. Usually, treatment specialists help patients understand the reward system as soon as they enroll in treatment. At some treatment centers, patients receive a treatment plan binder that explains exactly what they have to do to receive these rewards based on their treatment plan. Call ABTRS today to find out about what types of reward systems different treatment centers offer.

The First Step Toward Recovery: Moving to the Stabilization

Now, more than ever, it is time to focus on you. Putting outside influences like social media and friends aside has never been more important when withdrawing from drugs and alcohol. The first step to overcoming a substance abuse addiction is to rid your body of those toxins. Every patient who has walked through our doors have said that the withdrawing step is the most intimidating one. But with feedback comes an area to improve. How can A Better Today Recovery Services make withdrawing from drugs and alcohol less stressful on the body?

Effective treatment centers make their stabilization process as comfortable as possible. That includes offering 24-hour nursing staff to ensure vitals are monitored and your needs are met. Not only is our goal to help you find a comforting withdrawal process, but also to help you find a center that prioritizes individualized treatment.

During the stabilization process, the body needs time to adjust and cleanse itself of the drugs and alcohol. Many in active addiction believe they will never achieve happiness if they cut drugs and alcohol out of their life. A Better Today Recovery Services asks you to trust recovery professionals when it comes to this step in your recovery.

Levels of Care

A Better Today Recovery Services understands that people need options when it comes to treatment for drugs and alcohol. There are many outside influences that affect whether people need PHP, inpatient, outpatient, or residential care. Our goal at ABTRS is to identify what you need and work with you to achieve it. Drug and alcohol addictions rob people of their life savings, family relationships, and their self-worth. Connecting you with high quality treatment is what A Better Today Recovery Services is really about.

PHP or Partial Hospitalization Programs

At a PHP level, the patient will receive intense group and individual therapy. ABTRS believes it is important to find the root of patients’ addiction to truly recover from drugs and alcohol. Once master’s level therapist develop an understanding through one on one therapy, they develop a treatment plan. Some treatment methods include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, and relapse prevention. Treatment is tailored and becomes more effective.

Individual therapy allows the patient to work through issues, understand addiction as a manageable disease, and provide a safe space to find themselves again. Group therapy is also a cornerstone for substance abuse treatment. Group therapy allows individuals to benefit from the collective experiences of group members and learn socially acceptable behaviors.

Inpatient Care

Inpatient rehab is an intense learning and self-discovering recovery process. At most addiction treatment centers, inpatient rehab offers a 24-hour nursing staff, queen size beds, master’s level therapists, flavorful and hearty meals, goal-oriented incentive system, and family day Saturdays. It is all about healing the mind, body, soul, and family.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Intensive outpatient programs emphasize building a strong support network and learning how to manage your addictive urges. Developing a strong support network with group therapy sessions and getting involved with sponsorship programs are important for Intensive outpatient treatment. IOP surrounds patients with people who understand what they are dealing with, who care about their life in recovery, and encourage them to stay strong and sober.

Learning about addiction as a disease empowers our patients with knowledge. Engaging presentations/sessions on how to identify unhealthy relationships, relapse prevention techniques, practicing effective communication, introductions to the 12 steps, and stress management are important concepts for long lasting recovery.

Individualized Treatment Plans

When it comes to healing a whole person, there are many different methods of treatment that can make up an effective treatment plan. A Better Today wants you to benefit from therapy methods to inspire healing and self-discovery.

Drug and alcohol addictions numb people to only feel contentment or enjoyment when under the influence. That behavior alone can be destructive to a person’s potential, values, and morals.

Rehab is the best place for self-discovery and reflecting on what brings true happiness and contentment. By offering a variety of treatment methods to our patients, we provide a level of care that heals the mind, body, soul, and family relationships.

Equine Therapy

One unique type of treatment is equine therapy. Working with animals like horses allows patients a different method of treatment that encourages healing. For people who feel a connection to animals and the outdoors, equine therapy can give patients the help encouragement they need to continue on their journey to recovery.

Simple caregiving activities like petting, brushing, and feeding horses gives patients contentment and healing they never thought they would achieve. Developing a bond with an animal helped teach the value of healthy relationships. ABTRS respects our patient’s needs for equine therapy and are proud to connect people with the opportunity.

Nutrition Education

Many would never view nutrition as a therapy or a method of healing. Nutrition is important on two different levels. When someone abuses drugs for a long period of time, they can have poor eating habits. Their body deteriorates under the neglect, making it difficult for the body to function properly and regulate hormones. Getting our patients in the routine of eating regularly is important for introducing new positive behaviors that will help them in their recovery.

Many people have found a passion in the culinary arts during their time in recovery. They pursue an education in cooking, or chase after culinary professions that provide them with enjoyment and fulfillment. Becoming a wedding cake decorator or a high-end chef provides life goals that do not require drug abuse; ultimately enhancing our patients life with meaning and purpose.

cognitive behavioral therapy

CBT Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on the root of every addiction to ensure that the core of the problem is addressed. This type of therapy focuses on positive reinforcement, self-esteem building thought patterns, coping skills, and relapse prevention to help build confidence when faced with stressors or cravings. Active addiction breeds destructive and isolating behaviors that tend to lead to suicidal tendencies and demoralizing self-worth. Having a patient focused foundation for treatment will ensure that the care received is long lasting and purposeful.

Strength & Yoga Therapy

Substance abuse takes a toll on the body by polluting your organs with toxins and deteriorating your muscle tissue. Strength and yoga training encourages muscle building, strength training, and yoga therapy during treatment. Where most substance use treatment focuses on healing the mind and soul, healing the body is just as important. We encourage a healthy lifestyle during and after treatment to improve the quality of life in recovery.

Developing Life Skills

Developing life skills during treatment can help people prepare for living a sober life after treatment. Drug and alcohol abuse tends to effect communication skills, askew priorities and responsibilities, and develop unhealthy stress related coping mechanisms.

Developing life skills can mean creating healthy behaviors like practicing regular hygiene, cooking lessons, chores, and sticking to a routine. Feeling small accomplishments is important for proper hormone regulation when recovering. The burst of joy after cooking a delicious meal or smelling fresh clean sheets in a neatly made bed are important for both during and after treatment.

Family Therapy

Drug and alcohol addictions are considered a family disease. Many patients develop life goals in treatment to mend the family relationships that have been destroyed by substance abuse. Reuniting children with their parents and brothers with their sisters is the goal of many effective treatment centers.

Family therapy sessions can help mend relationships, build a strong family support system, and help educate family members of all ages about addiction as a disease. Addiction affects every family member differently. A high quality treatment center provides a safe environment to heal and establish healthy boundaries.

  • Expressive Therapy
    Expressive therapy allows those seeking recovery to express themselves by creating art, writing poetry, or making music.

Expressive Therapy

Expressive therapy primarily helps patients to express feelings in a healthy way, through the forms of creative writing or journaling, music, and visuals arts. These artistic modes act as healthy outlets for the distress and frustration which so often accompany substance abuse disorder.

Expressive therapy helps patients who might need alternative methods of addressing trauma or coping, by offering a diverse array of therapeutic services. Therapeutic poetry, creative writing, music, and visual arts are some types of expressive therapy methods.

Creative writing has three main benefits. It helps patients process uncomfortable emotions and complex experiences, express thoughts and feelings in a healthy way, and accept and let go of trauma and disturbing memories from before or during active addiction. Additionally, these sessions often establish excitement and passion in the recovery process for individuals, bringing some light into rehab, as they hone an art form that is ancient and innately human.

Poetry activates both sides of the brain, uniting creative expression (right brain) with logic and language (left brain) and is thought to be exceptionally successful in its therapeutic application for this reason.

Alumni Programs and Aftercare

This can be an extremely stressful transition but also the most rewarding. Staying sober in rehab should be considered an accomplishment with a long lasting reward: your life back. A Better Today Recovery Services can help you find a treatment center that offers reputable sober living options, alumni programs, and hosting evening intensive outpatient programs.

ABTRS believes it is important to have confidence in yourself and your ability to refrain from abusing drugs and alcohol. We encourage a goal-driven lifestyle filled with a steady job that will provide financial security, making amends to those that were hurt by your addiction, exploring 12 step meetings, and service commitments that keep you involved in the sober community.

Transitional living offers a safe place to start your life until you are ready to venture to where you belong. Transitional living reinforces the teachings in treatment, providing structure while planning the rest of their life with freedom to come and go.

Alumni events can help people build strong bonds and wish to stay in contact long after graduation. From BBQ Picnics to camping near waterfalls, alumni programs can provide former patients with a sense of community in recovery.
