12 Step Program & Our Therapies
An extensively tried and tested approach, the 12 – step program facilitates an active probing of the patient, encouraging their attendance and participation. The 12 steps of recovery, addresses the psychology of the patient/user- their addiction, as well as the individual’s willingness to engage with others and ask for help. The steps allow for the patient to acknowledge the need for a change, through personal accountability. The steps may seem to point at addiction as malignant, but doesn’t look at it simply as a sign of moral weakness. The 12 – step program works well, as there is a focus on one’s individual moral code as being central in the path to recovery.
The health practitioners at Awakening rehab foundation recognize the need for a psychiatrist to visit the premises, regularly. We value our clients and take their health and healing to be our primary focus. While our physician tends to ailments related to addiction, there is also a focus on routine health check-ups for ailments and health problems that aren’t connected to addiction. Our facility has several tie-ups with various hospitals in the area, where our client/addicts are periodically taken for health visits. Addicts/users are known to suffer from health concerns that accompany a lifestyle lacking in adequate nourishment. We, at Awakening rehab foundation recognize this, and consider a routine health check up to be paramount in the early detection of any conditions that may ail our clients, due to the past lifestyles they may have led.
Our Programme & What we offer
Experienced psychiatrist & clinical psychologists at Awakening rehab foundation, guide recovering clients/addicts for their compulsions, addictions, and other behavioral problems with a focus that goes beyond just ridding the individual of their symptoms. These experienced practitioners help with identifying the core of the issue that causes these individuals to become addicted to a substance, in the first place. Through the use of the following therapies, clinical psychologists at Awakening rehab foundation, aid recovering addicts to gain back the control of their lives before any adverse consequences.
Often used in combination with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Enhancement, behavioral therapy looks at eliminating individual patterns that may be causing stress and anxiety to particular clients/addicts.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:
This therapy is an effective way for an individual to understand the relationship between thought processes, behaviors, and emotional states. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) helps clients with adaptive thinking, and understanding as to how one’s life experiences contribute to their views on themselves and the world around them.
This is a kind of behavioral therapy that is based on operant conditioning. This kind of therapy instills positive and/or negative conditioning in the client/addict, depending on the kind of behavior exhibited. At times, withholding of privileges is taken to measure if the patient has been observed to carry out unacceptable conduct, and vice-versa.
Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy:
The goal of this kind of therapy is to assess and eliminate thought processes that may be negative or incorrect, in return helping the patient overcome psychological problems and mental distress, leading to addiction.
Motivational Enhancement Therapy:
This therapy employs motivational sessions with a therapist, to help the patient engage with their therapy. Motivational therapy is used to help the client/addict have more positive thought patterns about their recovery.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy:
This kind of therapy adepts clients with new skill sets to manage difficult emotions, in turn decreasing conflict within their inter-personal relationships. Using techniques such as mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) allows the patient to be in the present, and have perspective, when managing their attitudes towards their own addictions.
Multidimensional Family Therapy:
This therapy is mostly used to treat psychological problems in youth. By focusing and working on behavioral problems such as delinquency, antisocial and aggressive acts, this therapy helps the young addict in forming more meaningful relationships with their families.
This therapy employs different methods (behavioral, cognitive, physical, social, and spiritual) through various stages of the healing process, to attain the maximum benefit.
Person- Centered Therapy:
This therapy brings the patient to the centre of the conversation table, by putting their perspective about themselves at a pedestal. The therapist, in this approach, works towards understanding the patient from their perspective. This method can enable the patient to reconnect with their inner values and sense of self-worth.
The families/care-takers of the client need regular counseling (twice a week), to break the co- dependency pattern. Co-dependent people can often seem to reinforce each other’s unhealthy habits, and we here at Awakening Rehab foundation, provide counseling sessions to help eliminate this.
Relapse Management Program:
This program works by highlighting and working on individual triggers that may result in the patient re-using. This program focuses on working towards a healthy body and mind through meditation and relaxation techniques, which in turn result in a higher probability of being able to resist temptations and triggers.
This also includes a regular follow up by a staff member for three months after the client has been discharged.
