Counseling Services

Substance Abuse Recovery

Our counseling services are designed to support individuals through the withdrawal process and beyond, offering a foundation for understanding addiction and its complexities. Our dedicated drug and alcohol counselors work closely with each patient looking at their history and patterns of substance use, uncovering some of the causes or conditions that led to their addiction and creating a plan for ongoing treatment.

Drug and Alcohol Counseling

Counseling plays a pivotal role in the recovery process, offering a space for individuals to explore their relationship with substances, understand the triggers and behaviors that lead to addiction, and develop strategies for managing these challenges in the future. Our goal is to equip each person with the tools and confidence they need to foster a desire for lasting change and prevent future relapses.

Personalized Support: Tailored counseling sessions to address the unique needs and experiences of each individual.

Education About Addiction: Education on the nature of addiction, including its physical, emotional, and psychological aspects.

Identifying Underlying Causes: Focused attention on the underlying causes of substance use, such as trauma, stress, and mental health issues.

Comprehensive Care Model

By providing both group and individual therapy, we serve an essential role in the comprehensive care model, initiating the therapeutic process that opens pathways for individuals, setting the stage for deeper treatment.

Counseling at Global Medical Detox:

  • Group Therapy: Offers a supportive environment to share experiences and learn from others facing similar challenges.
  • Individual Therapy: Provides a private setting for deep personal reflection and targeted therapeutic interventions.
  • Education and Relapse Prevention: Arms individuals with knowledge about addiction and practical strategies for maintaining sobriety.

Focused on Relapse Prevention

A cornerstone of our counseling services is relapse prevention. Evidence-based relapse prevention therapies play a crucial role in the treatment of substance use disorders by helping individuals maintain their sobriety and manage triggers and cravings effectively.

Common relapse prevention strategies that we introduce to clients in our care include:

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Teaching our patients coping strategies to handle situations that might lead to relapse, making it a foundational component of many treatment programs.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): This helps individuals develop skills to manage stress and emotions, which are critical in preventing relapse.

Motivational Interviewing (MI): MI enhances an individual’s motivation to change by resolving ambivalence about substance use and encouraging commitment to treatment. It supports the self-efficacy and personal agency necessary for continuing treatment after detox.

12-Step Introduction: We introduce 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) to get patients comfortable with peer support and the development of a sober support network.

Prepared for the Future

Our counseling program is designed to ensure that when patients leave our care, they are not only physically detoxed but also mentally and emotionally prepared to continue their recovery journey. We strive to foster a sense of hope and resilience, empowering individuals to rebuild their lives free from the grip of substance abuse.
