The First Step Toward Recovery

Now, more than ever, it is time to focus on you, your addiction, and the quality of your life. Leaving outside influences like social media and friends aside has never been more important when entering a stabilization process that cleanses your body of toxins. Although going into the detox and withdrawal process feel scary and intimidating, we will help you find a high-quality program. Your program will provide staff who will look after your detox process every step of the way.

What is the difference between medical detox and social detox? 

Medical detox and social detox are two common ways to help patients through the detox process. During social detox, patients receive supervision from a medical staff. Supervised withdrawal process make detox as safe and comfortable as possible. Effective treatment centers offer 24-hour nursing staff to ensure vitals are monitored and the withdrawing process is safe and effective. Further, medical detox combines supervision with medications that can make the transition easier. Recovery programs that offer medical detox provide medications that helps with cravings. These medications can also control nausea and constipation. Having a doctor on staff that makes time for each patient to assess their symptoms and conditions helps each patient have the safe withdrawal period they need. Our goal is to help you find a treatment center that makes your withdrawal process comfortable. We also want to ensure that the first steps in recovery will be a solid foundation for your individualized residential care plan.

Quality Begins with the Initial Evaluation: Treating Dual Diagnosis and Co-occurring Disorders & Substance Abuse

Many people who suffer from a substance use disorder also struggle with mental health issues. A Better Today Recovery Services wants to help you find the treatment you need. We have been helping people find the addiction treatment they need for more than a decade. Therapists at high-quality treatment centers evaluate each patient for symptoms of co-occurring disorders. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers can treat bipolar disorder, major depression, or post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) along with substance use disorders.

Therapists have spent many years in school learning to recognize the signs and symptoms of undiagnosed mental health disorder. Patients who do struggle with a co-occurring disorder, often develop a dependence on substances like meth, pills, alcohol, or heroin to cope with their symptoms. This behavior is called self-medicating and by abusing alcohol or drugs they are able to feel normal or cope with life’s hardships.

With many patients, the undiagnosed mental disorder contributed to the addiction and the drug they choose to abuse. With others, the traumatic experiences associated with substance abuse influences the mental health disorder.

What truly matters to A Better Today Recovery Services is helping your quality of life improve. A recovery program that has the qualified staff, passion, and knowledge can provide you with the treatment needed to overcome your addiction.

Residential care provides quality levels of care that result in long-term sobriety. A Better Today Recovery Services wants to connect you with a rehab facility for substance abuse treatment. We can help you find a patient-focused program with comprehensive treatment that properly evaluates each patient for co-occurring disorders.

Advanced Medications that Encourage Success

Several decades ago, when someone wanted to get clean and live a life of sobriety, they had to quit cold turkey. It was their willpower that fought the cravings and got them through the shakes, itches, and nausea. Treatment centers provide the medical help and mental health help you will need to conquer your addiction. We can help you find programs that offer the safest and most effective medications to help you fight cravings and remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol.

Prescription medication can help you manage feelings of wanting to relapse. Effective medications can also help you manage your withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can include fatigue, depression, anxiety, nausea, and headaches. Commonly-prescribed medications include buprenorphine, naltrexone, and methadone for opioid use disorders. For alcohol use disorder, medications include acamprosate, disulfiram, and naltrexone. For nicotine addictions, doctors often prescribe bupropion, nicotine replacement therapies, and varenicline. At your treatment center, your doctor will prescribe the medication suited to your needs.

The Routine of Residential Care

Many residential treatment centers provide detailed schedules for each day. Here is one example of what a schedule might look like in treatment. From the moment you enroll in a residential care program, every day will be planned down to the hour. Depending on your program, your day will be filled with nutrition therapy, one on one therapy sessions, courses work modules and book work, group therapy sessions, expressive therapy, and yoga and strength training. From sunup to sundown, your treatment center will fill your day with meaningful activities that promote recovery.

Recovery is never easy. Even when patients have many resources that they need, finding the emotional and physical strength to overcome an addiction is hard. We are glad we can connect you with residential care programs that can address those common issues. Staying busy and constantly moving forward with various therapy methods helps improve their mood during treatment.

Many residential treatment programs also focus on helping patients develop life skills that will serve them after treatment ends. Building life skills that will help them achieve their goals and promote a healthy positive lifestyle in recovery is important. Teaching a daily routine and activities that brings joy and motivation is important for their quality of life during and after treatment.

Residential treatment facilities allow patients to interact with one another, relearn how to be part of a productive environment, build healthy relationships with others, and learn to set life goals.

What Methods Help Families Engage in Treatment Together?

Addiction not only affects the person suffering from substance use disorder. It also affects the loved ones, friends, and families of the people who have substance use disorders. Since addiction affects families, effective treatment helps families as well. Many treatment centers provide resources for family members as well as those suffering from addiction. For example, three common therapy methods include Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT), Family Behavior Therapy (FBT), and Functional Family Therapy (FTT). No matter what your needs are, we can help you find a center with the right type of therapy for you and your loved ones.

Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT)

First, BSFT helps each family member individually and collectively. Following the basic structure of the family systems approach to treatment, BSFT takes place over 12-16 sessions. The therapist creates a relationship with each family member, since the therapy centers on the idea that one family member’s behaviors come from unhealthy family relationships. Then, the therapist observes how the family members behave with each other. Finally, the therapist helps the family members change their negative interaction behaviors.

Family Behavior Therapy (FBT)

Second, family behavior therapy helps family members with substance abuse and other behavioral problems. In FBT, family members choose the type of intervention treatment options that they think will work for them. Further, therapists help all family members implement the treatment options. Not only do they set behavior goals for preventing relapse, but also for reducing risk of unhealthy behaviors. During each session, therapists review goals and reward good behavior.

Functional Family Therapy (FFT)

Third, FFT helps families learn how to solve problems, resolve conflicts, and improve their parenting skills. For those who have a teenager receiving treatment, FFT helps parents become engaged in the treatment process. FFT also modifies family members’ behavior by helping them improve their communication with each other.
