Modality:

Family Counseling:

Family Counseling can be for both the addict and his/her family, or may be solely for family members (without the addict present). Many support groups for family members of addicts see addiction as a family illness, not just the problem of one member of the family (the addict). Numerous research studies also demonstrate that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones -- especially family members -- participate in rehab and/or substance abuse treatment. Family support groups are also helpful since family members relating with an addict often need support themselves; it's a very stressful thing to deal with. Family support groups allow all members of the family to receive the benefits of treatment, and can include training on how to communicate effectively, establish healthy boundaries, and get support around the stress and trauma of addiction.

Individual Counseling:

In individual Counseling, a client meets one-on-one with a trained therapist or counselor. This kind of psychotherapy and focused attention is a crucial part of treating substance abuse and helping individuals overcome alcohol and drug addiction. Therapy can be instrumental in uncovering the root causes of addiction, such as challenges and struggles a patient has faced in their family, social, and work/school lives. Once these root causes (which often involve past trauma) are identified and worked through, substance abuse is much easier to overcome and sobriety to be reached. Different therapists use different therapeutic modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which has been shown to be effective in stopping addiction while also providing tools for maintaining sobriety.

Group Counseling:

Clients will work both alone with a therapist and in groups with fellow clients. One-on-one therapy helps you identify issues that need further work in group therapy. It also provides a safe space to talk about anything you aren’t yet comfortable bringing to the group. Group therapy offers a variety of ways to heal. You’ll experience the power of letting your guard down and connecting with others. You’ll also find yourself relating to and learning from others’ struggles.

Additional Services:

Medically Assisted Detox:

Alcohol and drug abuse has a harmful effect on the body, especially when, over time, a person has developed a physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. When someone is addicted to drugs or alcohol, the process of removing these harmful substances from the body is called detoxing. There are serious dangers to detoxing without the help of a medical professional. Detoxing in an unsafe way (for example, stopping suddenly and completely, i.e. cold turkey) can even be deadly. Medically assisted detox is done by a licensed medical professional, who monitors vital signs and keeps you safe while you're detoxing. It's very important for someone with a substance abuse problem to seek help before trying to detox on their own.

24-Hour Clinical Care:

At certain points in the recovery process, it's important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Aftercare Support:

When someone completes a drug or alcohol program, this does not mean that their treatment is over. It is extremely important for anyone recovering from alcoholism or drug addiction to have support while maintaining sobriety. Aftercare support involves making a plan for recovery and sobriety. This can include attending AA or NA meetings, moving to a halfway house or sober living home, finding a therapist or counselor who specializes in addiction, or participating in group therapy or family therapy while living at home. Many rehab facilities and mental health treatment centers offer some type of aftercare support for patients. A counselor or therapist can also work with patients to come up with an aftercare plan that helps them stay sober and live a happy, healthy life in recovery.

Treatment Approach:

Religious Approach:

Religion-based rehab refers to a recovery program that uses a specific religion or religious practice as the basis for treatment. These addiction treatment programs view faith as an important part of recovery and sobriety. Religion-based treatment programs can involve many religions, such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, etc. In these programs, counselors and peers use the teachings of a religion to offer support and guidance. Connecting with one's faith can help someone in a religion-based program build a strong foundation for recovery. Faith-based recovery programs can also provide inspiration, comfort, and support in a meaningful way. Some addiction treatment programs, like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), are not based on the teachings of a specific religion, but do emphasize a spiritual practice and the importance of connecting with a higher power.

Individualized Approach:

When it comes to overcoming alcohol or drug addiction, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment that works for everyone. Instead of following a standard treatment plan, many mental health professionals offer an individual, personalized approach to treating substance abuse. Individualized treatment takes into account a person's unique physical, mental and emotional health and the specific ways addiction affects their life. An individualized treatment program also acknowledges that each patient has different needs. Therapists and counselors who offer individualized treatment seek to treat all aspects of a person's addiction, including helping them improve their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

12-Step Approach:

A 12-step program is a treatment approach originally based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The 12-step model is used in many drug and alcohol addiction recovery programs. Licensed therapists and counselors also employ 12-step methods when treating individuals who are struggling with substance abuse. The first stage of a 12-step program involves admitting that you are powerless over your addiction and believing in a higher power that can help you. Other steps involve making amends to those you have hurt in the past, connecting with a higher power through prayer and meditation, and helping others in their recovery from addiction. The 12-step model is used for Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Gamblers Anonymous (GA), and Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA), among others. The 12-step model can be an effective way to help someone dealing with addiction, which is why it is used in a large number of treatment centers, as well as by therapists, counselors and mental health professionals.

Level of Care:

Outpatient:

An outpatient program is a treatment program for someone struggling with alcoholism, drug addiction or a serious mental health issue, where patients live at home while going through the program. A person enrolled in a residential or inpatient program might transition into an outpatient program. An outpatient program can last several weeks or months, depending on the treatment center or facility. Someone in an outpatient program will usually attend group therapy or individual therapy sessions multiple times a week, while still living at home. An outpatient program is also referred to as aftercare. It's important to make a plan for maintaining sobriety and continuing therapy while in recovery. A counselor or therapist can work with patients in an outpatient program to make sure they are getting the support they need.

Inpatient:

A residential treatment program offers housing and meals along with substance abuse treatment. These treatment centers allow patients to focus solely on recovery away from the stress and demands of daily life. There are short-term residential treatment programs (which last a few days or a couple of weeks) and long-term programs (which last several weeks or months). A residential treatment program can help someone get the support and therapy they need to overcome alcoholism and drug addiction. Many of these programs offer personalized treatment options, in which mental health professionals work one-on-one with patients during each stage of their recovery.

Treatment:

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

Substance abuse treatment at The Ranch addresses the full spectrum of underlying issues and co-occurring disorders that fuel addiction. Their specially trained clinicians help clients learn to manage the difficulties that have driven their drug and alcohol use such as trauma, mental health conditions and challenging relationships. At The Ranch alcohol and drug rehab, clients don't just get sober, they learn healthier coping skills to replace destructive behaviors. Treatment is individualized, taking into account each client's preferences, issues and background so that their experience is relevant and meaningful.

Alcohol Abuse:

There are many warning signs for alcoholism. For someone who is abusing alcohol, excessive drinking affects their work, school and home life. Other symptoms of alcohol abuse include: memory loss or blacking out, engaging in risky behavior (like driving a car), and hurting yourself or someone else while drunk. Alcohol abuse can progress to alcoholism. An alcoholic can’t control when or how much they drink. For an alcoholic, the goal of treatment is abstinence. Treatment and recovery from alcoholism usually involves therapy or counseling, as well as 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis:

The Dual-Diagnosis Program at The Ranch Mississippi is based on personal responsibility and is designed for those patients who have difficulty maintaining sobriety from their chemical dependency. The combination of daily structure, group therapy, education, monitored self-administration of medications, and medication checks with the psychiatric nurse practitioner and addictionist is the foundation for personal growth. Patients are expected to perform self-care that includes personal hygiene, laundry, grocery shopping, meal preparation, habitat cleanliness, and attendance of scheduled treatment activities. The Ranch Mississippi is not a locked unit. Patients who become acutely psychotic, physically aggressive, or a threat to themselves or others may be transferred to a psychiatric facility for their protection. Patients may transfer back to The Ranch Mississippi to complete their treatment protocol after stabilization is achieved. Dual Diagnosis treatment includes psychiatric evaluation, medication management, and Dual Diagnosis group therapy.

Opioid Addiction:

Opiate addiction treatment focuses on helping individuals who want to overcome addiction to opiate drugs. These drugs include illicit substances like heroin, as well as prescription opioids like hydrocodone and oxycodone (prescription names include Vicodin and OxyContin). This kind of treatment deals with everything from the shame of addiction to strategies for maintaining sobriety. For example, many people start taking prescription opioids for a legitimate medical reason (such as recovery from surgery), and then become addicted. Once they can't get the prescription drug anymore (i.e. the surgery is over and there's no more medical reason for continued prescriptions), these people often turn to heroin. There can be a lot of shame and self-judgment involved in the unexpected decline of one's health and life path that accompanies something like heroin addiction. In individual and group therapy, such issues are explored, with the goal of healing. Some opiate addiction programs also address co-occurring mental health issues if those are present (i.e. a person has both clinical depression and struggles with opioid substance abuse). Treatment for opioid addiction can involve seeking out individual counseling, or going to a rehab center for full-time rehabilitation.

Sex:

Sex addiction involves an obsession with sexual thoughts or fantasies. Sex addiction can also mean engaging in compulsive sexual acts or behaviors. Signs of sex addiction include: loss of control over sexual urges, having multiple affairs, and addiction to pornography. For a sex addict, sexual behavior tends to have a negative effect on their life and relationships. A person with sex addiction, love addiction, or codependency issues could also struggle with substance abuse or drug addiction. A trained counselor or therapist can help a person overcome sex addiction and improve their relationships.

Co-Dependency:

Co-Dependency refers to a relationship in which one person sacrifices their own wants and needs to "fix" or support the other partner. In a codependent relationship, love and intimacy are often experienced as one partner in distress, while the other partner "rescues" or enables them. Codependency can lead to substance abuse and addiction, and codependents may be less likely to seek help for their issues, as they tend to be the "helpers" in relationships. The term love addiction is used to describe a compulsive or constant pursuit of romantic love as a way to feel secure and worthy.

ADHD:

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is generally characterized by the inability to focus; not being able to get or stay organized; being impulsive; and being hyperactive (not being able to sit still). While it's normal to have trouble focusing and paying attention at times, for someone with ADHD, these behaviors are more extreme, occur more frequently, and make it hard to succeed or even function at work and/or at school. In order to be diagnosed with ADHD, a person must be seen by a healthcare professional such as a pediatrician, psychiatrist, or psychologist. Both children and adults can be diagnosed with ADHD. It is common for someone struggling with addiction or substance abuse issues to also struggle with ADHD, especially since many people seek out drugs or alcohol to help manage the symptoms of ADHD.

Anger:

Aggression, anger or violent behavior should not be ignored. Extreme feelings of anger can lead to distress, dysfunction and the inability to cope with one's emotions in a healthy way. A person with anger issues might have a sudden or uncontrollable outburst. Individuals with anger problems might also hold grudges, have trouble taking criticism, or feel like they have to “win” every argument. For someone struggling with addiction, anger issues could cause or worsen their substance abuse problem. Also, a person who is abusing drugs or alcohol could experience more intense feelings of anger.

Anxiety:

An anxiety disorder is the diagnosis for someone who experiences frequent or obsessive anxiety that doesn't go away. Signs of an anxiety disorder include excessive worrying; trouble concentrating; fear of making the wrong decision; and constantly feeling restless or inability to relax. Physical symptoms of an anxiety disorder include fatigue, poor sleep patterns, nervousness, nausea, sweating, and tense muscles. Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health issues that occur alongside substance abuse. Many addiction and substance abuse counselors are trained to help patients with a co-occurring anxiety disorder.

Bipolar:

Bipolar Disorder is a mental illness that generates unusual and extreme changes in a person's mood, energy levels and the ability to accomplish daily tasks and think clearly. A person with Bipolar Disorder can experience frequent highs (often referred to as mania or manic episodes) and lows (often referred to as depression or depressive episodes). Someone with Bipolar Disorder might "self-medicate" by using drugs and alcohol to deal with their mental or emotional issues. Substance abuse is more common with Bipolar Disorder than with any other mental health diagnosis. Suicide is a serious risk concern for an individual with Bipolar Disorder.

Depression:

Depression is a serious mood disorder. Signs and symptoms of depression include: fatigue, trouble sleeping, changes in appetite, lack of interest in activities a person used to enjoy, irritability, and suicidal thoughts. A depressed person might feel sad, anxious, or hopeless. Typically, symptoms must persist for at least two weeks before someone is diagnosed with clinical depression. Depression can affect people of all ages, ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds. An estimated 30% of people with substance abuse problems suffer from depression.

Eating Disorders:

Eating disorders are often considered food addictions, in that food is used in an addictive way (similar to drug or alcohol addiction). Common types of eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and dysfunctional eating patterns. Signs and symptoms can include dramatic weight loss; concern about eating in public; an intense fear of being "fat", even though underweight; having an excessive, rigid exercise regime; and rigid thinking. Multiple rehab facilities and substance abuse treatment programs offer treatment for eating disorders, and there are also individual counselors who specifically treat eating disorders (outside just rehab clinics). For some individuals, an eating disorder may occur alongside a drug or alcohol problem. In order to help someone get the care they need, it’s important to see a therapist who is trained in treating both eating disorders and addiction.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder:

A person with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) has repetitive, unwanted thoughts (obsessions), along with irrational, excessive urges (compulsions). Signs of OCD include: the urge to organize and clean things, feeling anxious, thoughts about hurting yourself or others, and washing your hands until skin becomes raw. Someone with OCD who is also struggling with alcohol or drug addiction may have more severe symptoms or behaviors. A counselor or therapist who specializes in both mental health and substance abuse treatment can help someone overcome addiction and deal with their OCD.

Gambling Addiction:

Gambling addiction, also known as "compulsive gambling" or "problem gambling," is when a person cannot resist the urge to gamble. It's what's known as an "impulse control disorder," meaning the addict can't stop him- or herself from gambling (it's compulsive). Compulsive gambling often has very negative consequences for both the gambling addict and their loved ones, both emotional and financial. For example, compulsive gambling addicts can get into extreme financial trouble (i.e. bankruptcy or owing people or institutions like casinos thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars), which impacts both that individual as well as those depending on them for financial support (family). Gambling addiction is often accompanied by behavioral or mood disorders, such as anxiety disorder, depression, ADHD or Bipolar Disorder. Individuals with a gambling problem may also struggle with substance abuse, alcoholism, or drug addiction.

Techniques:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a common therapy technique. This type of therapy focuses on the relationship between a person's thoughts, feelings and behaviors. For example, if you know that when you have the thought, "I'm worthless," you want to drink or do drugs, you can then make a new choice in the future when you have that thought (like calling a friend or going for a walk instead). Awareness is critical in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the ultimate goal of which is to help patients develop healthy responses to their thoughts and feelings. CBT has been proven very helpful for people struggling with alcohol and drug addiction, as well other mental health issues, like eating disorders. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps a person become more self-aware and build up their ability to cope with problems in healthier ways. Many therapists, counselors, psychologists, and social workers use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques when working with their patients.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

DBT is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy that helps clients identify and change destructive thoughts and behaviors with an emphasis on mindfulness, regulating emotions, improving interpersonal skills and managing distress. DBT has been shown to be particularly effective for people with personality disorders or chronic suicidal thoughts.

Trauma Therapy:

Trauma can be one of the main triggers and causes for addiction. Trauma therapy helps someone deal with a traumatic incident or event from their past. Trauma can stem from childhood sexual abuse; domestic violence; teenage or adult sexual assault; or losing one or both parents at a young age. There are other types of trauma as well, such as having a parent with a mental illness. These traumatic experiences often affect a person's life in the present. For instance, someone who was a victim of childhood sexual abuse often feels intense shame, fear, depression or guilt. Those who have experienced trauma often abuse drugs or alcohol as a way to cope with what happened to them in the past. The goal of trauma therapy is to help a patient process their trauma and move on, with the aid of a trained and compassionate mental health professional.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing:

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, commonly referred to as EMDR, is an information-processing technique used to diminish the distress caused by exposure to traumatic events. EMDR focuses on retrieving, processing and resolving any past experiences that contribute in a negative way to a client’s current experience, including intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, anxiety, panic attacks, overwhelming emotion and physiological symptoms of fear. This trauma therapy has been accepted by multiple therapeutic organizations including the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, and the Veteran’s Administration as an effective and highly recommended treatment for individuals struggling with trauma.

Experiential Therapy:

Adventure Based Therapy uses a wide variety of carefully designed group initiatives and activities to cultivate trust and communication while developing team-building, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. These skills are essential in the treatment and recovery of addiction. The Ranch Mississippi ’s Adventure Therapy Program works to identify trust issues, improve interpersonal communications skills, cultivate and promote leadership skills as well as promote personal responsibility. Program components include trust-building exercises, ice breaking activities, personal and group goal setting, and teamwork exercises

Motivational Interviewing:

Motivational interviewing is a therapeutic technique that empowers clients to take responsibility for their recovery and discover their own motivation to change. It is based on the belief that real change comes from within, not from a counselor or therapist dictating solutions to problems. They guide clients through the therapeutic process, allowing them the space and encouragement to recognize their own barriers to recovery and discover their own solutions and motivation. Open-ended questions, an affirming attitude and active listening are core components of motivational interviewing.

Life Skills:

The ranch prepares clients for success in recovery by engaging them in everyday activities they’ll encounter after leaving treatment. Depending on the program they attend, clients will practice skills like budgeting, grocery shopping and cooking. They’ll also live in a house with others, share chores and practice resolving interpersonal issues that arise in everyday life.
