What Makes Our Addiction Treatment Program Different?

If you’re wondering what makes The Raleigh House more effective than other substance abuse centers, you aren’t alone. It’s one of the most common questions we get.

The short answer is that we view addiction as being more than just the use of drugs or alcohol. For this reason, we’ve developed a comprehensive substance abuse recovery program that not only focuses on all aspects of your loved one’s personal health but also the health of your relationship.

The Raleigh House uses therapeutic approaches that include working through behavioral patterns, emotional issues, interpersonal difficulties, traumatic life events and pre-existing or co-occurring mood disorders. We also recognize the importance of managing dietary and nutritional needs while addressing drug and alcohol addiction.

We believe we can improve both the vitality and quality of our clients’ lives by helping them break down barriers, increase their drive and develop effective lifestyle changes and health connections.

Family Therapy and Support Services

Watching a loved one struggle with addiction can be extremely difficult for families. You may not realize it now, but your support can make all the difference in the world when it comes to helping the person you care about recover from drug or alcohol addiction.

The Raleigh House Approach

family-approachThe Raleigh House encourages family involvement throughout the entire treatment process. We facilitate weekly educational and support group meetings for families as well as provide individual family sessions. These meetings help you understand your role in the recovery process – both during and after a loved one’s stay at The Raleigh House. This can help mend the wounds addiction has created for your family.

Focusing on family education helps with your loved one’s recovery in many ways:

  • Maintaining a recovery lifestyle. When recovering addicts improve their relationships with their family members, they can then turn to them for support. This makes facing the real world a lot less frightening. This not only helps your loved one feel supported in times of need, it also strengthens your family dynamic.
  • Setting effective boundaries. We help your family understand the difference between supporting loved ones in recovery and enabling their addiction.
  • Relationship mending. Addiction causes turmoil within relationships. It is important that your loved one gets the chance to repair family relationships during treatment. One way to do this is by attending the family sessions and workshops offered at The Raleigh House.

Emotional Therapy and Support

The Raleigh House helps families learn how to regulate their own emotions, which supports healthy relationships and can reduce the chance of relapse.

Emotional support helps your entire family recover from drug addiction in many ways. Drug addiction is a complex disease. It doesn’t necessarily start because your loved one lacked willpower or self-control. Instead, it may have started due to an underlying unhappiness with life in general and a strong desire to find an escape. Or, substance abuse may have provided a way for your loved one to cope with strong emotions such as stress or anxiousness. In fact, it is not uncommon for addicts to have a “co-occurring condition” such as depression, PTSD, or any number of anxiety disorders.

Again, we believe that addiction is more than just using drugs or alcohol. By focusing on why your loved one started using drugs in the first place, we can help find healthier ways to manage emotions.

Different Types of Emotional Support at The Raleigh House

At The Raleigh House, we understand that your loved one may respond to certain types of therapy differently. That is why we have established multiple forms of emotional support that can be used during and after treatment.

A few methods of emotional support include:

  • Individual Therapy. Residents meet with a therapist individually two to three times a week, giving them a safe outlet to express their emotions throughout treatment.
  • Group Therapy. Group therapy gives residents the opportunity to connect with people who are dealing with similar struggles. It removes the feeling of isolation during a difficult time.
  • Community Involvement. While in the program, residents will also attend fellowship programs, including AA (alcoholics anonymous), CA (cocaine anonymous), NA (narcotics anonymous), and Emotional Sobriety.
  • Nursing Services. The medical/nursing team is involved from the beginning and throughout treatment providing initial and on-going nursing and psychiatry assessments, medication management, education and observation.

Not only does regulating emotions promote healthy relationships, it’s also great foundation for preventing a relapse down the road.

Relapse Prevention Support

Rehab and recovery have two different meanings. Rehab is the place that teaches recovery. Therefore, recovery lasts much longer than the 90 day stay. If the tragic story of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death has taught us anything, it’s that addiction is forever. He was reportedly clean for two decades before he relapsed in 2014.

This is why we put so much importance on relapse prevention as part of our drug abuse treatment program. Getting your loved one to stop using the drugs or alcohol is only part of the addiction story!

Relapse Prevention Support at The Raleigh House

Many different triggers could potentially cause a loved one to relapse. Stress (or other difficult emotions), boredom, and mental health issues are among the most common. Our treatment program fights these triggers so recovering addicts have an increased chance at avoiding relapse.

Aside from strengthening your family support system and giving you and your loved one the skills necessary to manage difficult emotions, The Raleigh House will:

  • Recommend local therapists and 12-step programs. This further strengthens the emotional support group after the drug treatment program is completed.
  • Work with employers to get your loved one back to work sooner. This makes something other than drugs or alcohol a focal point for our clients.
  • Provide nutritional and exercise programs. A proper diet and exercise routine boosts self-esteem, relieves stress, and fights depression.

The Full Circle of Addiction Recovery

Many aspects of addiction intersect with each other. Addressing each factor is important to making a full recovery. By taking a comprehensive approach, we help ensure that the recovery process accounts for the connection between mind and body. Our mind facilitates our thoughts, which causes emotions that impact decisions. Our physical health impacts how we feel physically and mentally, and the people we surround ourselves with impact our emotions, decisions and quality of life. That is why The Raleigh House has formulated a treatment program that ties everything together with family education and support, emotional therapy and relapse prevention.
