Drug Addiction Centers and Different Treatment Modalities

Friday, February 16, 2018 | By JP Emerald Coast

Drug Addiction Centers that fall into the dual diagnosis category employ several different types and modalities of treatment therapies to aid in the recovery of a client’s recovery. The dual diagnosis spectrum is vast and wide, with accompanying symptoms from a variety of different co-occurring issues. Co-occurring issues can include depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and OCD. The most common are anxiety and depression.

TMS or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

TMS is a type of brain stimulation that uses low-level magnets to target hyper-specific regions of the brain to combat symptoms of anxiety, depression, and especially substance abuse. The reasons behind this are technical and require a working neurological understanding of the brain. But this is the only FDA-approved treatment for depression for clients that have had adverse side effects to medication in the past. It is highly effective. There are only a few drug addiction centers that offer TMS to clients.

Experiential Therapy

There are many different types of experiential therapy. These include equine therapy, low and high ropes courses, and some coastal facilities even offer dolphin therapy. Experiential therapy, sometimes called adventure therapy, is responsible for introducing an addict or alcoholic to fun and comradery in sobriety. One of the first things taken away by active addiction is the ability to have fun with other people in a sober, substance-free setting. One of the brightest spots of each client’s time in treatment is the experience they share during experiential therapy.
