Addiction Treatment Programs in Massachusetts at Vertava Health
At Vertava Health Massachusetts, we offer you, and anyone else suffering from addiction, access to a myriad of treatment methods and techniques. Our programs use proven, evidence-based practices that have been tested and approved for use in treating addiction.
No two people are the same; therefore, no two approaches to treatment should be the same. Our individualized approach to substance use treatment is what sets us apart. Through listening and assessment, we will create a plan that forms a solid foundation for permanent recovery.
Recovery Through Treatment Starts with Detoxification Services
The first step in our treatment is to help you break free from the toxic physical clutches of addiction. We offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) that enables you to manage and tolerate the severe and physically painful stages of withdrawal.
When you use addictive substances, like drugs and alcohol, your body’s physiology and neurochemistry are altered. In the latter case, your brain’s very chemistry has changed. Certain neurotransmitters, important chemical messengers within your brain, have adapted to the influx of the drug within your system.
For example, your brain may have adjusted to a substance being its sole provider of dopamine (a neurotransmitter responsible for feelings of relaxation and contentment) and stopped producing the chemical on its own.
Suppose you suddenly cease using the addictive substance. In that case, your body and brain will react harshly, as they have become dependent on the drug in some capacity to function, resulting in what can, at times, be very uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. With time, the brain can bounce back and begin producing dopamine on its own again.
After Detox, Continue Healing with Our Addiction Rehab Programs
Once you have eliminated the addictive substance from your body and managed the withdrawal symptoms, with or without MAT, you are ready to gain the tools that will allow you to mentally and emotionally lead a life of recovery.
At Vertava Health Massachusetts, we believe in a holistic treatment method that manages all of your symptoms and returns you as much as possible to your pre-addiction state.
Physical Health Assessment: A Key Part of Recovery
We pride ourselves on utilizing the nation’s best treatment modalities to provide individualized care. During your initial check-in period, your physical health will be carefully assessed to ensure that you aren’t suffering from any significant health problems. Pain management techniques will be implemented here, and new and improved dietary guidelines. Once you’re ready, we’ll begin to build your strength up through low-impact workout techniques such as Tai Chi and trauma-informed yoga.
The benefits of improved physical health are two-fold:
- You will gain more strength, focus, and positive energy.
- It will help improve your mental health and alleviate anxiety and depression symptoms.
Mindfulness techniques, such as meditation and breathing exercises, will help you master cravings and avoid dangerous relapses. We offer you access to a high-quality exercise room that lets you take a break and perform your own private fitness routines.
The synchronization of body and mind can be vital in getting to the root of substance use issues. The more in tune you become with yourself, the less likely you will seek comfort in substance use. Achieving inner peace is paramount to lasting recovery.
Regular checkups on your physical health will help make sure you are performing all your exercises correctly and in a healthy manner. You will also be monitored to ensure that you aren’t suffering from any new or potent types of pain.
Psychological Help Is Prioritized at Our Drug Rehab Program in Massachusetts
Countless studies have found that mental health disorders are a common contributing factor to addiction. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has determined that upwards of 43% of people in treatment for substance use disorders also suffer from a mental health disorder. Thankfully, our experts at Vertava Health Massachusetts are skilled at identifying your mental health disorders and finding ways to treat them.
The following treatments are offered to help address your mental and emotional health needs:
- Dual diagnosis treatments to help treat co-occurring disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and trauma
- Recreational treatment, such as painting and writing, help you express your emotions in a constructive and meaningful way
- Family and group therapy allows you to build robust support systems that fully understand your addiction and who are willing to help you maintain your focus on the will to succeed
These psychological treatments will occur alongside behavioral adjustment techniques to help you find new and healthy ways of coping with problems and beating relapse cravings.
Behavioral Adjustment Techniques Used in Addiction Rehab at Vertava Health–Massachusetts
Our highly successful mental health treatment doesn’t stop at just counseling sessions. We also offer multiple behavioral adjustment techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing that will guide you towards more healthy and positive coping methods.
Our cognitive behavioral therapy experts will teach you how to correct negative thinking patterns (including addictive thought patterns) and replace them with positive ones.
This helps you create a positive self-image and a new sense of self-respect, both of which are crucial for addiction recovery success. If you suffer from more severe mental health problems such as borderline personality disorder, dialectical behavior therapy will teach you how to manage extreme emotions, gain a calm personal insight, and interact with people in healthier ways. This will help break the need for addiction in your life and give you increased strength.
Another approach we specialize in here at Vertava Health Massachusetts is motivational interviewing. This technique is non-invasive and non-confrontational; instead, it focuses on a goal-oriented intervention. A trained expert will interview you and help identify areas of life that motivate you so you can place your focus on them. You’ll learn what truly matters to you and learn how to master those aspects in your recovery.
Drug Rehab Aftercare Services: Outpatient and Support Groups
After you finish treatment with us, you will be enrolled in our aftercare services. This typically includes regular calls from our counselors to help gauge your treatment success and progress. During these calls, you can discuss any issues you may be facing and vent out your frustrations as needed. Our graduates often learn to look forward to these calls as a way of checking their own success and motivating themselves to succeed.
We also work hard to help you integrate back into your daily routine by helping you find temporary housing or even work, if necessary. Beyond these services are our educational classes, which help teach you new skills and regain lost ones. Essentially, aftercare sets you up for continued success after leaving our facility.
Outpatient care is also available and will give you the temporary help you need to beat cravings or recover from a relapse. When relapse occurs, it is essential to be surrounded by a support system of trusted individuals to help lift you back up. Ideally, relapse can be used as a learning tool to create new motivation for a sober life.
We’re also here to help set you up with a sobriety group of your choice. There is a wide network of international sobriety organizations that can be used as a resource. We want you happy and healthy and will do whatever is in our power to help you achieve inner peace and tranquility.
