In addition to providing the medications needed to help individuals overcome their addictions to opioids, Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers are pleased to include certain therapeutic interventions to help our patients solidify their recovery. We believe that in order for patients to accomplish the overarching goal of no longer being opioid dependent, it is necessary to understand the emotional and psychological triggers that contributed to the abuse of such substances in the first place. By not acknowledging these types of triggers, there is a high risk for relapse and ultimately reengaging in the self-destructive behaviors that are cornerstone to substance abuse and addiction. We, at Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers, incorporate therapeutic interventions to compliment the medications we offer in order to provide our patients with the greatest chances of truly recovering.
Many people who come to abuse substances, such as heroin or prescription pain medications, often do so as a means of escaping or numbing some type of emotional pain or turmoil. Negative feelings and such emotions not only sometimes lead a person to abuse drugs, but can also hinder a person’s efforts to become sober. When partaking in treatment that only alleviates withdrawal symptoms and cravings for opioids, there is a high likelihood that a person will resume abusing heroin, painkillers, or other such substances when distressing emotions and feelings are not addressed. For this reason, Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers afford patients opportunities to engage in the following:
- Group therapy
- Individual therapy
Counselors who are expertly trained and highly experienced when it comes to treating those battling addiction conduct the aforementioned therapeutic interventions. Depending on each patient’s needs, the recommendation for and frequency of group and individual therapies within treatment plans can vary from patient to patient. However, they are integral parts of the care offered at Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers.
Our intake experts are standing by to answer any questions that you or your loved one may have about the therapies we offer, as well as the medications we use within our medication assisted treatment. If you or someone you love is hoping for a drug-free and brighter tomorrow, give Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers a call today. We are here to help.
