Addiction Treatment Programs Las Vegas
Wondering what the next step is in your recovery journey? Interested in our treatment programs? Questions about insurance?
A National Survey on Drug Use and Health concluded from its results, that 21.7 million people within the United States (8.1 percent) go to rehab centers to receive treatment for a variety of addiction-related issues, mainly substance use disorders (SUD) relating to drugs and alcohol.
The first step to recovery from addiction is acknowledging one has a problem that is disrupting their quality of life in all aspects, including relationships, school, social and recreational activities, and other important areas of function. Asking or wanting to actually go get help comes afterward. Once an individual recognizes the extent of how their substance abuse issues are negatively affecting their life, there are a variety of treatment options available to serve everyone’s needs.
As addiction is defined as a chronic disease, it should be treated as one. Receiving addiction treatment is necessary for breaking the ongoing cycle of the disease, and therefore, should never be a one-size-fits-all approach, as each individual has unique circumstances and needs.
In other words, each individual with addiction brings their own experience, background, and needs to the table. Several treatment options for addiction are available, and most people experiencing substance abuse will receive a comprehensive and tailored treatment plan to match their circumstances.
Oftentimes, a combination of approaches such as therapies will be utilized to treat the person and their addiction as a whole. Treatment options will vary, and the same types will not always work for every person.
Treatment options for substance abuse depend on several factors, including the type of addiction, severity, and how long it has occurred, and how it has affected an individual, both physically and psychologically.
At Ken Seeley Rehab treatment center in Las Vegas, Nevada, we believe in providing our clients with high-quality individualized patient-centered care and support before and after their journey with addiction.
By providing a variety of addiction treatment programs that focus on our clients and their families, in addition to other resources and support, we can help to achieve healing and provide the necessary tools to achieve and maintain long-term sobriety and recovery.
Our team of trained addiction specialists knows that one treatment program won’t do the trick when it comes to achieving sobriety. Spending 30 or 90 days at our Las Vegas, NV addiction treatment center is helpful; however, it is definitely not a cure.
For a client to achieve and maintain long-term sobriety, we understand that they need a full continuum of care. For those on a journey to reach sobriety and find the tools to maintain it, our facility offers the following addiction treatment programs for our clients:
The first step after arriving at our rehab facility is called intake or detoxification. Medically-assisted detoxification is a comprehensive process where our team of addiction specialists will get to know you, and you get to know the facility on a more personal level. They will ask you to take a psychological evaluation, and also gather information, such as medical history, family history, etc. After being admitted treatment starts, and the first step is detoxification.
To begin with treatment, the body must be free of harmful substances. Ken Seeley’s Las Vegas detox center provides a safe and monitored environment for individuals to go through the withdrawal process. Medical supervision helps keep clients out of harm’s way.
When a person uses either drugs and alcohol or both for an extended amount of time, the body becomes dependent on the substance. This means that when a person abuses drugs or alcohol, the body becomes used to the way the substance affects it, and the brain adapts in accordance, so it can function normally.
In psychology, there is what is called the mind/body connection. This means that our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes positively or negatively affect our biological functioning, resulting in a complex relationship between our minds and bodies.
So, in terms of addiction, eventually, a person builds not only dependence but a tolerance, where the substance dosage has to continuously be increased to feel the same effects. This process is a cycle, as tolerance leads to dependence, requiring our bodies to need or crave drugs or alcohol to function in some capacity.
Despite what people may think, once a person is addicted to drugs or alcohol, and the body is dependant and tolerant of these substances, it is not as easy as flipping a switch to rid the body of the toxicity. It is highly advised against detoxing without professional help, as attempting to quit cold turkey comes with its consequences.
During detoxification at Seeley Rehab, the body is being rid of the toxicity of drugs and alcohol. So, when an individual suddenly stops the behavior or substance that they are addicted to, it is common for them to experience awful physiological symptoms called withdrawal. The brain and body have become used to the substance being consumed regularly over time. Eliminating them in this unconventional way causes confuses the brain.
In other words, withdrawal symptoms occur because the body, both mentally and physically, is not used to and trying to adjust to drugs and alcohol being eliminated from the body. Cravings are a huge part of withdrawal, and therefore, to help expedite the process, anti-craving medications are often used to help rid the body of the substances as quickly as possible. Common withdrawal symptoms during detox include:
It is important to note, withdrawal symptoms and the intensity at which they occur vary depending on the person, and what substance has been consumed. Withdrawal is often intense and uncomfortable, and therefore, whatever the addiction, for this reason, is why so many people find it difficult to overcome addictions without professional and medical supervision.
Residential treatment also known as inpatient rehab is the highest level of treatment, where individuals live at the facility for however long. Inpatient caters to people needing extensive treatment for those diagnosed with severe drug and alcohol addiction. These types of facilities usually include medical detox and mental health services.
At Ken Seeley Rehab in Las Vegas, NV, our inpatient program begins with us understanding each of our patient’s circumstances and needs. Our multidisciplinary team of highly-qualified addiction specialists will evaluate your medical history, mental health, and substance use, to design an individualized and comprehensive drug and alcohol rehab plan tailored to address your specific needs and challenges.
Since addiction is such a complex and indiscriminate disease, residential treatment often aims to treat a person holistically. We believe in the effectiveness of our residential addiction treatment program, which has made a huge difference, due to the inclusion of support groups, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), group and individual therapy, and mental health counseling.
Staying at Seeley Rehab in Las Vegas, NV can jumpstart the recovery process, removing addiction triggers and risk factors, so one can focus solely on healing and becoming sober. This has shown a dramatic difference in the effectiveness of our residential addiction treatment program.
People struggling with addiction are also struggling with their mental health and vice versa. When someone has a mental disorder and addiction issues simultaneously, this is called a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder.
People who have a pre-existing mental illness often cope by drinking and taking drugs and those who have addiction issues often have an underlying mental illness which is a huge contributor to why they are addicted.
The combination of mental illness and drug addiction can come in many forms, certain combinations happen more frequently in those who are struggling. Common mental disorders that overlap with the consumption of drugs and alcohol include:
Identifying the signs of co-occurring disorders of addiction and mental illness can be challenging since many of the symptoms are the same. This is also why mental illness is often left dangerously untreated.
Dual diagnosis treatment provides care for both issues to help clients break free of this ongoing detrimental cycle. Therefore, that is why people must understand the interactions between mental health and addiction. Doing so will help you or your loved one get simultaneous treatment and begin your recovery.
Our professionals at Seeley Rehab understand the overlapping nature of mental illness and addiction. At any of our locations you or your loved one will find a staff of experts in both areas.
We can help you gain control over addiction and while restoring good mental health.
After the rigorous schedule of a residential program, clients still need structure as they begin to prepare themselves to return home. A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides an organized plan for clients to help prevent relapse while giving continued support.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) still provides structure and support without the strict schedule of a PHP. During outpatient treatment individuals in this type of treatment, often live at home while attending extensive hours of therapy and treatment for addiction at a facility multiple times a week.
Patients in IOP can maintain more independence while attending school, work, or participating in other activities. Participating in an intensive rehab program helps with the transition to outpatient, without making the client feel abandoned after completing their residential/inpatient rehabilitation program.
To help prevent relapse, clients can participate in a sober living program through our Las Vegas, NV addiction treatment center. These safe environments help clients feel comfortable and confident in returning to their home and living a life in sobriety.
Ken Seeley Rehab doesn’t believe support should end when a treatment program does. Our aftercare program provides continuous support through activities and case management that clients need to stay accountable and active in their recovery. Coping techniques and life skills are also taught to help teach how to deal with everyday life situations.
