Individual therapy provides you a chance to work with an experienced addiction counselor to delve into root causes for your substance abuse. That lets you begin to understand what might cause you to return to abusing drugs in the future so you can plan ahead to make healthier choices during those times. During individual therapy, you may also begin to discuss and work through other issues that are related to your addiction.
Group Therapy lets you hear about the struggles and successes of others so you can learn from them. It also offers a chance for you to share your own issues in a safe environment among others who are able to understand and support you without judgment.
Recreational therapy involves participation in a wide range of activities, from arts and crafts to sports or yoga, to help you learn to develop healthier coping mechanisms for dealing with stressors and triggers for relapse prevention.
Education about nutrition, healthy boundaries, and even legal or medical issues often play a role in addiction treatment. The goal of inpatient treatment is to help you rest your mind, body, and soul so that you can exit treatment living a different lifestyle. Learning how to eat right, exercise, or face legal issues are all part of that pivot.
Other important aspects of inpatient treatment for heroin dependence include living a structured lifestyle that supports consistency and security, immersing yourself in a supportive community of like-minded people, and getting a hard break from the life that led you to opioid abuse.
The Difference in Changing Tides vs Other Addiction Recovery and Treatment Centers
Changing Tides takes a unique approach in the treatment process to all these best practices for long-term inpatient rehab. Individuals who enter our recovery program are supported by a safe environment and have access to a wide range of human services. But we believe in providing time for you to breathe and work individually on your own issues and detoxification, and our beachside facility is ideal for that purpose.
You’ll take part in all of the therapies above and have access to caring, professional counselors. But you’ll also live individually and in a community with others who are relearning how to live healthy lifestyles. That means preparing your own meals in the full kitchen in your suite and exploring growing freedoms as you move through rehab, including access to mobile devices and laptops and the ability to walk on the beach or even drive a vehicle to run errands. We also encourage family and friends to participate in substance abuse programs as appropriate, even coming to stay with you in your suite on the weekends.
