Alcoholism:The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.Dual Diagnosis:Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person\'s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.Mental Health and Substance Abuse:A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.Opioid Addiction:Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Levels Of Care

Medically Assisted Detox:Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.Kemah Palms offers personalized Drug and Alcohol Detox Programs with Individual Recovery Plans created by their Physicians, Psychiatrists, Registered Nurses and Addiction Counselors. Patients are monitored 24 hours a day by dedicated medical, nursing, clinical, and technical staff to ensure they are comfortable while experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Each patient is treated with dignity and respect, while receiving a combination of evidence-based treatment and personalized service. Recovery is a life long journey that begins with a customized Drug and Alcohol Detox Program at Kemah Palms.Intensive Outpatient:Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.Inpatient:Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient\'s individual requirements.Aftercare Support:Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn\'t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).Partial Hospitalization Program:A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a short-term form of intensive rehab, usually for those with acute symptoms that are hard to manage but don’t require 24-hour care. PHPs have structured programming (i.e. individual and/or group therapy), and usually meet 3-5 days a week for around 6 hours (i.e. 9am-3m). Some PHPs are residential (patients sleep on site) and some are not, so patients sleep at home. PHPs can last from 1-6 months, and some offer transportation and meals.Intervention Services:Intervention services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict\'s behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one\'s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient\'s own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CMT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.In CBT, one of Kemah\'s various treatment modalities, the individual and therapist work together to focus on the here-and-now to help in the recovery process. They search for patterns of thinking that negatively affect behavior and work to modify those thought processes to reflect a positive self-image. CBT explores reactions to outside stimulus, and it helps individuals uncover and recognize unhealthy thoughts more readily so that they can change them as they occur.Creative Arts Therapy:Creativity is inherently healing, and can help those in recovery express thoughts or feelings they might not otherwise be able to. Creative arts therapy can include music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and more. Unlike traditional art, the final product matters far less than the experience of creation and expression itself.Dialectical Behavior Therapy:DBT is an evidence-based approach targeting patients with chronic emotional dysregulation problems and impulse issues which result in behavioral difficulties. It suggests that some people react more intensely toward some emotional situations resulting in a dual effect: a higher level of emotional stimulation to stress and a prolonged inability to calm down. Also, these people suffer from extreme mood swings and the inability to cope with intense surges of both emotions and stress.Kemah Palms Recovery integrates DBT into their holistic recovery program to help patients overcome the challenges they face while empowering them with increased problem-solving skills, cognitive reasoning, and the ability to control and balance their emotions. We focus on reducing destructive behaviors by teaching coping skills and adaptive behaviors, which improves basic social skills, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, reality acceptance, and mindfulness.Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing:EMDR is fairly new non-traditional type of psychotherapy. It is used particularly in cases of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with increased frequency and success. Basically, EMDR uses a person’s own rapid eye movements to dampen the power of emotionally charged memories of trauma.In EMDR, one of Kemah\'s effective treatment modalities, the therapist moves their fingers back-and-forth in front of the patient’s face, asking them to follow the hand movements with only their eyes. Meanwhile, the patient is asked to recall disturbing events that have lingering traumatic effects. Gradually, the therapist guides the patient to shift their thoughts to more pleasant memories in hopes of helping the patient release the disabling effects of these disturbing memories.Family Therapy:Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.Kemah Palms is committed to working closely with family members throughout the course of treatment, in all levels of care. Chemical dependency is a family illness; yet, a false notion exists that the family caused the addiction or that they can control it and help “make” the person get sober. In addiction, family members are frequently forced into unhealthy roles of enabling their loved ones because they care; however, this behavior actually hinders the addict’s wellness. Active participation in the recovery process, through healthy visitation, education, and counseling, gives the family opportunities to learn different ways to support someone in treatment and in the long-term recovery process.Fitness Therapy:Fitness therapy blends exercise with psychotherapy for a fun, inspiring, and effective way of treating addiction and other issues. By incorporating movement into counseling sessions, clients become more empowered, motivated, and goal-oriented, all while strengthening their bodies and becoming more flexible. Fitness Therapy is usually used to complement a course of treatment (inpatient or outpatient) to make it even more successful. Increasing the connection between a patient’s mind and body helps both with healing as well as in creating new, healthy habits.Group Therapy:Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.Individual Therapy:Talking with a therapist, psychiatrist or a psychologist is one of the most common ways to begin the mental health treatment process. No matter what the issue, talk therapy is almost always a part of the treatment plan. At Kemah Palms, one-on-one therapy is a common means toward growth and healing. Individual psychotherapy involves the patient meeting with a therapist individually in hopes of reducing the internal suffering that causes problematic behavior. Together they confront the barriers that interfere with emotional and mental well-being and the triggers that engender addictive behaviors. During these sessions, patients often become more conscious of themselves, their inner world, and their relationships with others.Motivational Interviewing:Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.Nutrition Therapy:Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.
