Substance Use Disorder Treatment

Substance Use Disorder
Substance Use Disorder goes by many names, including chemical abuse, drug addiction and drug dependence. While each of these terms relates to substance abuse in some way, the definition of substance use disorder comes with specific criteria that don’t necessarily correspond with all of these terms.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, substance use disorder specifically refers to drug dependence in the sense that the body has reached a point where it needs a drug (or alcohol) to function normally. In turn, this disorder can appear in different stages of severity depending on how long a person has engaged in substance abuse practices.

Addiction is a complex condition, a brain disease that is manifested by compulsive substance use despite harmful consequences. People suffering from addiction (severe substance use disorder) have an intense focus on using a certain substance(s), such as alcohol or drugs, to the point that it takes over their life.

Our staff is well-trained to recognize the root of the client’s issues and what drives the initial need for the substance use.

Struggling with an addiction can lead to a wide array of negative outcomes. From strained relationships with friends and family to chronic unemployment and a variety of physical and mental health concerns, a substance use disorder can be severely damaging for both you and those around you. 

The good news is that addiction is treatable. When you make the choice to seek help at an addiction treatment center, you can stop the harmful effects of a substance use disorder and regain control of your life. 

Adults who come to IHCS Addiction Program follow a plan that is custom-made for them. By addressing your needs and taking your strengths into consideration, we can help you achieve stabilization and give you the tools you need to prevent future relapse.

At IHCS Addiction Treatment program, we use a number of evidence-based therapies to treat people who are struggling with an addiction to opioids, alcohol, sedatives, hypnotics, or anxiolytics. 

Before you begin treatment, our admissions counselors and specialists will conduct an intake assessment to help our team understand your needs and goals. The information we receive can help us develop a customized care plan that will serve as your road map for recovery. 

Your addiction treatment plan may include an array of therapies and services, such as: 

  • Individual therapy 
  • Family therapy 
  • Group therapy 
  • Basic medical care 
  • Medication management services

We base the addiction treatment we provide on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivation enhancement therapy (MET). We also offer multiple types of group therapy, including process, reflection, activities, and goals groups.

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiapines
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • Opiate

Addition is a debilitating disease that leaves no area of an addict’s life untouched. With propt, proper care, and a treatment plan that meets each individual’s needs, we begin to help our clients down the road to sobriety. Our addiction treatment is based upon the 12-step model for addiction recovery, which has been proven to be one of the best ways for addicts to continue their rehabilitation and maintain sobriety. We use a combination of medication management, medication, and behavioral therapies to help our clients overcome their addiction to opiates and learn the skills needed to maintain sobriety.
