At Chapel Hill Detox, we offer a clinical program that combines psychoeducational groups, daily primary process groups, and daily individual therapy sessions. Our master’s level clinicians guide and support each client depending on the unique level of care they need. Whether inpatient or outpatient, each person can expect to participate in activities that promote a smooth transition to a new healthy lifestyle without addition.
Addiction education helps set the foundation for recovery. Our clinical program teaches clients about addiction and how it can affect them and their family’s well-being. Though substance use education is most valuable for prevention, it has a concrete place in recovery. Understanding how addiction can grip an individual and alter the trajectory of their life may increase their chances of a successful recovery.
Chapel Hill believes relapse prevention skills are vital during and after treatment. Our clinical program highly prioritizes the development of these skills. After all, substance use recovery is a lifelong process.
Traditional treatments will always have a place in recovery. Our clients benefit most from our conjoined holistic and traditional approach. Therefore, we offer several programs that encourage each client to connect with their mind, body, and spirit. Building a healthy relationship with yourself can work wonders in treatment. Our clinical program’s holistic services include daily morning meditation, weekly massages, weekly acupuncture, and group and individual nutrition counseling.
We believe that holistic medicine works best when combined with proven traditional treatments. Each client is unique and requires different levels and approaches to fit their needs best. That being said, our specialized clinical program instills both self-confidence and self-worth during treatment.
Acclimating to a new sober lifestyle may be overwhelming at first. Chapel Hill’s clinical program consists of many forms of psychotherapy rooted in healing trauma and potential co-occurring disorders that keep our clients linked to addiction. One critical form of therapy we offer is individual therapy.
Individual therapy is a form of talk therapy that allows licensed therapists to work one-on-one with their patients. During a session, the patient may discuss any emotions, challenges, and behaviors with their therapist. Individual therapy offers patients a safe and secure environment to work through issues that potentially link them to unhealthy thoughts and behaviors.
How Does It Work?
Addiction therapists strive to expose their patient’s specific triggers. By doing so, the patient may then healthily address their behavior. Ultimately, therapists work to:
- Motivate patients to make positive changes in their lives
- Alter thought processes, improving patient’s mindset while encouraging goal orientation
- Guide and support their patient every step of the way – during and after treatment
Many clients join treatment in less than ideal physical, mental, and emotional shape. We believe in leisure time because it allows our clients to take a step back and develop heightened self-awareness. Leisure time is not only meditative, but it can help shift the perspective of our clients.
The Family Dynamic
An integral part of the clinical program is the family portion of the program. The family portion addresses the family dynamic which their loved one’s substance use has likely disrupted. At Chapel Hill, we believe the family must play a role in the healing process. Not only does it benefit the addicted individual, but families commonly benefit from therapy as well.
Family therapy allows each family member to express their feelings and experiences to both their loved one and the therapist. The primary purpose of family therapy is to repair any damage done to family bonds during the addiction process. The entire family may benefit from therapy. Some direct benefits include:
- Self-care: Therapists remind family members to take care of themselves through this complex process. Though times have been challenging, their loved one is receiving the support and care needed for recovery.
- Boundaries: Families learn to create healthy boundaries with their loved ones in the clinical program.
- Rebuilding trust: Trust is often compromised in complex situations involving substance abuse. Therapists help to rebuild broken bonds within families.
During the clinical program, each patient and their family participate in weekly sessions via phone. Families also have access to weekly online family support groups, which consist of about 100 members.
