Family Counseling:

We understand that having a loved one in active addiction can be a traumatizing experience for the entire family. Often, the family is unfamiliar with the emotions that occur while a loved one is struggling with addiction and this can result in unintentionally prolonging unhealthy behaviors. Our goal is to bridge this gap between the client and the family in efforts to build an understanding of addiction and provide education on how to confront problems that arise and facilitate successful long-term recovery for individuals AND the family. Our detailed family program focuses on repairing family relations and addressing the wide range of issues and emotions that are experienced by the families of clients. It is very common for family members to feel resentment, disappointment, fear, anxiousness, and a lack of trust toward their loved one struggling with substance abuse. With the help of our addiction specialist counselors, we give both the client and family an open platform to discuss their emotions and feelings towards each other. Our counselors can pinpoint the root of problematic behaviors, allowing them to mold and change the thought processes that leads clients to choosing these behaviors.

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:

Group Counseling is therapy that includes two or more people and is led by a mental health professional (usually a therapist or a counselor). Group therapy can help participants improve their social skills, talk about their problems with others, and work on their mental health issues. In group therapy, members can provide support for one another in the group. They can also offer advice on how a person in the group can cope with or deal with their problems. Some group therapy sessions focus on helping people suffering from alcoholism or drug addiction. Through group therapy, participants often feel less alone because they know that others struggle with the same issues.

Additional Services:

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.

Sober Living Homes:

Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who've just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.

Treatment Approach:

Holistic Approach:

A holistic approach to treatment involves helping someone improve their physical, mental and emotional health. Holistic therapy focuses on the body, mind and soul to achieve optimal health and wellness. In treating addiction and substance abuse, holistic therapy practices are often used alongside more traditional treatment methods, such as psychotherapy, counseling or medication. Many drug and alcohol rehab centers offer some form of holistic therapy, such as yoga, nutrition therapy, meditation, acupuncture, massage, fitness classes, and art therapy. A counselor or a therapist might also recommend holistic therapy for patients struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Additionally, a counselor might use a holistic approach when treating a patient. A holistic approach could also be beneficial in treating other mental health issues, like depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, etc. Holistic therapy is about more than overcoming addiction and maintaining sobriety: it's about treating the person as a whole — mind, body and spirit.

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:

At New England Recovery and Wellness their team is dedicated to providing every client with a treatment and recovery experience tailored to their individual needs. The RAW staff understands the varied roads to recovery and the challenges presented to an individual throughout their journeys. Because so many factors contribute to addiction and recovery, it is impossible to create one standard form of addiction treatment. RAW’s treatment services operate from some basic principles for providing effective care for each client.

12-Step Approach:

They strongly encourage incorporating the 12 Steps into each individual treatment plan and actively participating in outside 12-step meetings of various recovery fellowships. These groups aid in providing a platform for sharing among peers and help solidify a support network in the early stages of recovery. Some of the more common 12 Step programs include: Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Gamblers Anonymous (GA), and Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA).

Level of Care:

Partial Hospitalization Program:

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a treatment program for patients who do not need 24-hour care. These programs usually help individuals with mental illnesses, but they can also help those struggling with substance abuse issues. In a PHP program, patients typically have structured treatment programs, like group or individual therapy, and meet 3-5 days a week for 6 hours or less. In some PHP programs, patients sleep on site. PHP programs can last up to 6 months and some offer transportation and meals. A PHP program can be a bridge between inpatient and outpatient treatment. A counselor working with patients in a PHP program can help them return to normal life, while still providing support during this transition.

Intensive Outpatient:

Clients will attend educational sessions on a variety of topics relating to addiction recovery and coping with mental illnesses. These groups review the latest research in addiction treatment to educate them on developing better coping strategies for dealing with their condition after they complete treatment. Intensive outpatient clients will learn how to identify and understand their triggers for using drugs and practice better life habits to prevent from relapsing. Clients will also learn how to identify high-risk situations associated with drug use, how to change their behavior for the better and avoid bad influences. These group meetings and individual planning sessions focus on helping our intensive outpatient clients build a solid foundation in their early recovery, give them the tools they need successfully integrate back into society after treatment and enjoy a long-term recovery.

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.

Treatment:

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center is designed to treat individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. Therapists and staff at these kinds of centers help patients who struggle with both a drug and alcohol addiction, along with a mental health problem like clinical depression, anxiety disorders, Bipolar Disorder, and more. They're trained to help patients identify the root causes of their addiction and mental health issues, and to help manage both. Many addiction counselors specialize in treating individuals with mental health problems, and are well-equipped to deliver high-quality treatment to those struggling from addiction alongside a mental health issue.

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:

Dual diagnosis refers to the diagnosis given to a person or patient who struggles with addiction and has also been diagnosed with a mental or emotional illness. To treat someone with a dual diagnosis, rehab centers and other mental health facilities aim to provide comprehensive treatment for both the substance abuse and mental illness. At these facilities, counselors and therapists work with dual-diagnosis patients to help them manage their mental health problems and overcome addiction at the same time. Common co-occurring substance abuse and mental illnesses can include drug addiction or alcoholism alongside clinical depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, and more. In some cases, a mental health illness can lead to an addiction issue, or vice versa: an addiction issue can create a mental health issue. It's important to treat both at the same time whenever possible.

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.

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.

PTSD and Trauma:

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health disorder that someone can develop after experiencing a traumatic incident, such as a shooting, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault (i.e. rape or child sexual abuse). Symptoms of PTSD include reliving the event in one's mind; nightmares; avoiding situations that might trigger memories of the event; negative beliefs and feelings; and feeling jittery, angry or irritable. The main types of treatment for PTSD are psychotherapy and medication. Someone suffering from PTSD may experience depression, anxiety and substance abuse problems.

Stress:

Stress is a normal part of life. Everyone experiences it from time to time, especially in times of transition, like losing a loved one; losing a job; moving from one place to another; or getting married or divorced. However, extreme stress can negatively impact a person's physical or mental health, especially if it isn't dealt with appropriately. Chronic stress (meaning stress that doesn't stop) can also lead to more serious issues, such as depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and other mental health issues. Someone who suffers from chronic stress is not likely recognize the true extent of their stress level, and usually tries to obsessively control every task. Stress is also a known risk factor for misusing or abusing drugs and alcohol (i.e. if a person is both in an abusive relationship and dealing with the death of a parent, it can be easy to turn to drugs or alcohol to numb the pain and the grief). Addressing stress is often a part of therapy (one-on-one or group therapy) in the treatment process, as is exploring healthier ways of handling stress that don't involve substance abuse. When it comes to addiction, stress is almost always part of the equation, but there are many healthy and productive ways of dealing with it that support sobriety.

Techniques:

Fitness Therapy:

Fitness therapy blends exercise with psychotherapy for a fun, inspiring, and effective way of treating addiction and other issues. By incorporating movement into counseling sessions, clients become more empowered, motivated, and goal-oriented, all while strengthening their bodies and becoming more flexible. Fitness Therapy is usually used to complement a course of treatment (inpatient or outpatient) to make it even more successful. Increasing the connection between a patient’s mind and body helps both with healing as well as in creating new, healthy habits.

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.

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:

The term EDMR refers to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EDMR is a type of therapy originally developed to process trauma, and it can help someone to quickly and dramatically reduce the stress associated with a traumatic event. During an EDMR session, a patient is prompted by a therapist to undergo rapid back-and-forth eye movements (i.e. watching someone's finger go back and forth quickly in front of your face). This eye movement is similar to the REM sleep cycle, and helps reprocess memory in the brain (REM sleep is the last stage of the sleep cycle in which dreams often occur). EDMR is commonly used to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in adults, and has been proven to be very effective. It can also be used to help children and adolescents dealing with traumatic events (like school shootings or child abuse). The goal of EDMR is to help the brain reprocess a memory, as a way to heal these painful or traumatic memories. Following an EDMR session, a patient might feel calmer, more relaxed and more stable.

Experiential Therapy:

With experiential therapy, the clients at New England Recovery and Wellness learn how to approach challenges in a proactive manner rather than a reactive one. This allows for a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the impact their decisions may have not only on themselves, but also on others. The primary aim of their experiential therapy addiction program is to help clients begin making better choices – ones that align with their true values while allowing their needs to be met in a healthy manner.

Life Skills:

Overcoming addiction is not easy. Someone struggling with alcohol or drug addiction faces many challenges in their personal and professional lives, and needs life skills to navigate them. Life skills simply means the skills one needs in life to function sucessfully in the world. A recovering addict might need help developing some of these life skills, like getting a job, time management, money management and having good communication skills. Along with providing therapy and support, many mental health professionals, such as therapists, counselors, and social workers, help patients improve their life skills. Some rehab centers offer life skills classes, which help patients job hunt, find a place to live, and learn better social skills, without needing drugs or alcohol to cope.

Nutrition Therapy:

In treating addiction and other mental health issues, many benefit from a holistic approach, which can include nutritional therapy. Also known as medical nutritional therapy (MNT), nutritional therapy refers to changing one's diet to treat physical or emotional health issues. Nutritional therapy seeks to treat the body as a whole and promote physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. A nutritional therapist — which could refer to a professsional nutritionist or a registered dietitian — helps a person alleviate their health concerns through maintaining a healthy, balanced diet. A nutritional therapist makes diet and lifestyle recommendations, but they do not diagnose medical conditions or treat mental health issues directly. Many rehab facilities and addiction recovery centers offer some form of nutritional therapy.

Creative Arts Therapy:

We tend to think of therapy as 'talk' therapy, but this is not the only type of therapy. Creative arts therapy can help someone dealing with substance abuse or mental health issues in a different way. Creative arts therapy includes music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and other creative activities. This type of therapy helps someone express emotions, thoughts and experiences that might be hard to talk about. Creative arts therapy can be beneficial for children, teenagers and adults struggling with mental health problems, alcoholism and drug addiction. This form of therapy is not meant to replace 'talk' therapy or other types of treatment. However, creative arts therapy provides an important outlet for patients while in recovery.

Yoga:

Yoga is a holistic practice that can improve your physical, mental and emotional health. Yoga involves breathing exercises, physical movement, and meditation. Yoga can help you feel calmer, less stressed and more relaxed. An addict often turns to drugs or alcohol as an unhealthy way to cope with their problems. Yoga can be a healthy way to manage emotions and improve your mood. You do not need to be "in shape" to do yoga. People of all ages and body types can do some yoga poses, and nearly everyone can benefit from the physical effects of yoga, which include flexibility and resilience. Many rehab centers and mental health treatment facilities offer yoga classes. Some recovering addicts find yoga to be very beneficial in overcoming their addiction, as well as improving both their physical and mental health. Yoga is not meant to be a substitute for traditional therapy, counseling, or a rehabilitation program.
