It takes more than a weekend of medical detox to overcome addiction. The most important step in bouncing back is to identify a licensed Drug Treatment Center with a high rate of success. A patient centered approach is another important attribute that makes the difference between good Drug Treatment Centers and not so good ones. Overcoming addiction is in fact a complex process that is best administered by treatment professionals who have had varied levels of experience. It just so happens that the board certified multidisciplinary team of addiction specialists at Bristol Drug Treatment Centers are keenly aware of all facets of addiction. Most have been where you are and are sensitive to the struggles necessary to achieve full recovery.
Drug Treatment Centers Bristol is also a fully licensed and accredited facility that adheres to recommended evidence based guidelines for treatment of substance abuse disorders. Although we offer the most innovative and cutting edge treatment interventions some of our most popular programs are meditation, biosound, art and equine therapy. Current research on addiction recovery shows that individuals who incorporate healthy lifestyle changes into their everyday lives after rehab are more prone to experience long term sobriety. Since it is our philosophy that treatment is not about the addiction but healing for the whole person, all our programs work cohesively to create a dynamic individualized program.
Although the traditional 12-Step model has a place in our comprehensive care protocols we also utilize clinically proven modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Lecture/Didactic Sessions to name a few. We also adhere to the belief that family play an integral role in the recovery process therefore we provide family therapy sessions that enable families to gain insight into misconceptions about addiction and the significance of providing healthy support to their loved one.
Years of clinical studies reveal that individual counseling is one of the most vital components of a successful recovery program. At Bristol Drug Treatment Centers, individual therapy is an important part of each customized program which is adjusted to facilitate the needs of the patient because some patients require more one-on-one sessions than others. Experts agree successful treatment outcomes are dependent on the progress patients make during these individual counseling sessions.
Another critical component of recovery is identifying underlying issues that may contribute to a relapse after the patient leaves rehab. Dual Diagnosis is the co-occurrence of a mental illness with addiction. When this condition is present it is necessary for treatment of both conditions to occur concurrently. Our clinical staff is comprised of psychiatrists with certification in addictionology and counselors with training in dual diagnosis treatment.
These qualifications are of utmost importance because the number of addicts also presenting with a mental illness is staggering. Based on data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) over 17.5 million Americans over the age of 18 have a serious mental disorder of which 4 million also struggle with a drug or alcohol dependency. Other studies show over 65% of individuals with addiction also suffer from a mental disorder.
Dual diagnosis treatment is a complex process that requires specific qualifications, expertise and experience. Mental disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder and personality disorders among others are sensitive issues compounded by addiction. As such, not all facilities are capable or willing to provide this critical treatment intervention.
