Individual and group therapy in drug and alcohol Rehab

group therapy in drug and alcohol Rehab

In the course of their stay in the rehab, the patients typically receive individual counseling from a trained addiction therapist and participate in regular group therapy sessions with other patients. The aim of these sessions is to empower the patient with the skills needed to live a life free of alcohol or drugs. Many rehab facilities incorporate 12-step meetings into their treatment program.

Aftercare program

The standard treatment period in an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab center in Tucson is 28 days, but it may take longer. In this period, patients benefit from recovering in a controlled environment free of drugs and alcohol. The most successful rehab programs have a robust aftercare program that caters the recovery needs of a patient after they are discharged. The recovery center offers continued support for a given period following completion of the inpatient treatment program.

Aftercare plans include residence in a halfway house, intensive outpatient treatment, weekly counseling sessions, among attendance at 12-step meetings among others.

Family meeting

Many rehab centers in Tucson include family members in the treatment program. Research has shown that doing so increases the likelihood of long-term success because family dynamics such as difficult relationships play a role in the pathology of addiction.

During family meetings, patients and their family members learn about the dynamics of addiction, identify the tools and strengths available to them for recovery, talk about the negative impact addiction has had on their relationships, and embark on the process of mending those relationships.

Many rehab facilities require the patients’ family members to attend Al-Anon meeting as a requisite to visiting you in treatment. The meetings are aimed at helping the family members learn how they may have been enabling the patients and their role in the pathology of your addiction.
