Addiction Treatment Programs at Northpoint Nebraska
At Northpoint Nebraska, we treat patients using evidence-based practices, which means research has proven they work. We also work with you to create a tailored treatment plan that addresses both your addiction and any mental health issues that may play a part in your substance use.
Northpoint Nebraska offers a safe and comfortable place for people to heal. Our addiction treatment program was specifically designed to fill the need for detox services in Nebraska.
With detox, inpatient, and outpatient treatment programs, we provide a full range of coordinated care for adults. Our highly regarded program is staffed by psychiatric providers, nurses, licensed therapists, and recovery technicians who provide compassionate care throughout your phases of treatment.
We offer same-day admissions, flexible treatment, and semi-private rooms for our patients. Following a no-cost assessment, patients may be advised to enter any of our programs that fit their individual needs. Those programs include medical detox, inpatient treatment, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), or an intensive outpatient program (IOP).
Our research shows that those who complete detox and treatment together are less likely to relapse and more likely to stay sober longer. It’s also critical to have an aftercare plan for when rehab is complete and it’s time to return to your natural environment.
When searching for a treatment program, it’s important to do some research about what the program includes and what it provides. So to learn a bit more, we’ll dive a bit deeper into some of the services and programs we offer at Northpoint Nebraska.
Medical Detox Program
Chemical addictions affect the body physically, and experiencing withdrawal in a place where you are not supervised by trained professionals can be dangerous due to the risky nature of some withdrawal symptoms.
A person can sometimes relapse because they’re unable to manage the uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal. It’s our duty as a treatment center to provide the easiest and most comfortable transition into treatment we can offer.
Our detox program helps patients cleanse their bodies of dangerous toxins in a safe environment supervised by a team of medical professionals. We accomplish this by using therapeutic activities and specialized medications such as Vivitrol to help you manage uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.
Detox can last anywhere from three to seven days depending on the patient’s physical condition.
Your comfort, safety, and recovery are important to us and we focus on making the detox process reflect those things.
Residential Inpatient Program
After detox, you’ll transition into rehab for the remainder of the 28-day program. This is where we will focus on the psychological aspects of your addiction. You’ll be taught about:
- The root causes of your addiction
- How to manage cravings that cause relapse
- Retraining your brain to function without substances
Your thoughts and learned behaviors will all be addressed to help you find healthier approaches to everyday life situations. You will gain valuable information from group therapy sessions as well as individual one-on-one therapy. Therapy can help you better understand your specific situation, and then it will help you learn how to take steps to improve it.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Following inpatient treatment, you may move into our partial hospitalization program (PHP). In PHP, you will be treated at the facility five days a week for about six weeks. You will be allowed to go home each night and will come back every morning during those five days per week. You could also stay at a sober-living home.
It’s called a partial hospitalization program because you’re only there for partial amounts of time versus being at the facility all day and night. During this phase, there remains a high level of care with different types of therapies and psychiatric care.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
The next step down in treatment is the intensive outpatient program (IOP). As you progress through the treatment phases, the goal is to gradually become more prepared to resume life after treatment.
IOP is similar to PHP, but they do have some key differences. When in IOP, you will be coming to the treatment facility for about five hours a day, three days a week. Like PHP, you will go home each night. The length of the program typically depends on the patient’s needs, which will be assessed throughout treatment by our staff.
IOP lets the patient put into practice what they’ve learned, reconnect with family, and build a new support group while still returning for scheduled support to maintain a sober lifestyle.
Unfortunately, relapse happens, but it doesn’t mean you have failed recovery. During the recovery process, even if you have relapsed before, we will teach you the skills you need to manage your cravings and urges to use substances.
Sometimes, people relapse because they can’t identify how to cope with what they’re feeling, whether it be emotional or physical. When taught how to manage life situations, you become much more capable to address things on your own.
People tend to be better at fixing a problem when they know how to approach the problem. For example, let’s say you had a lot of stress in your job. If you don’t know how to manage it, you could become overwhelmed and spiral into a situation where you struggle to keep up.
When taught how to manage stress, you will address the stress as it comes, which means it won’t build up and also won’t create a situation where you will spiral out of control.
Learning how to cope with cravings and preventing relapse will be part of your everyday routine in recovery. In rehab, you will learn how to work these coping tools into your future outside of the treatment facility.
Things can be hard when you feel like you’re alone in a situation, and this is where process groups come in to lend a helping hand. Process groups are essentially group therapy sessions where 5-10 people meet to speak about issues or concerns with licensed therapists. Group therapy provides individuals with the ability to hear other perspectives or ideas related to their situation.
Process groups also allow for interaction in a group setting, which can boost self-confidence and communication skills. Group therapy can allow a person to become more self-aware and also provide support for those involved.
Sharing your story and hearing about other patients’ addiction battles is a key part of the recovery journey. Process groups can help you see your own past from an open-minded perspective.
Alternate Treatment Methods
Northpoint Nebraska understands that sometimes alternative methods work better for people than the more traditional ones. Some programs that make Northpoint Nebraska different include:
Acudetox: Acudetox is acupuncture focused on five key pressure areas to decrease withdrawal discomfort. Acudetox is easily given in group settings with five-needle treatments lasting 30-45 minutes and targeting specific locations on the ear. This non-verbal, drug-free, holistic treatment reduces cravings and stress, making it well-received in the addiction treatment field.
Nutrition education: As many know, what you put in your body is important, and many people lack the proper know-how to manage their diet. Because we want to be able to help in all areas of your life, we offer dietician-led groups to educate you about nutrition’s role within a person’s sobriety.
Unfortunately, sometimes a person completes a treatment program and then is sent out on their own without any support to guide them through the challenges of re-entering life and living a sober lifestyle. This can be really hard for some and may even result in relapse if not addressed. This is why at Northpoint Nebraska, we take pride in providing support and care for our alumni after they have left our treatment center.
A major part of relapse prevention is maintaining a strong, positive social support group of people with like-minded goals. Our alumni currently remain active through alumni social media groups, sober group outings, and weekly meetings that occur via Zoom and in person.
