Recovery programs are an essential part of drug and alcohol treatment. At Drug Treatment Centers Augusta, we offer a range of programs and systems to help patients overcome drug addiction and abuse. Recovery programs help patients withdraw from drugs in a safe and secure environment, while also providing them with the skills they need to improve their lives. From traditional 12-step programs to music therapy, art therapy and general spirituality, there are more recovery programs available than ever before.
From the first stages of intervention and detoxification to the later stages of medical treatment and behavioral therapy, recovery programs are used to treat every phase of withdrawal, recovery, and relapse prevention. They are often designed with 12 steps in mind, with conventional models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) branching out to also treat people who are addicted to illegal and prescription drugs.

There are a range of treatments available for alcoholics and drug addicts, from intensive residential programs through to group counseling and irregular out-patient sessions. While detox and medication treatment is integral to drug rehab, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), ongoing therapy and relapse prevention measures are just as critical. Many of the recovery systems currently in place throughout America are based on behavioral therapy, with a range of therapies used to help patients change their behavior and become more mindful of their emotional state.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy used to treat mental illnesses and substance abuse disorders like drug and alcohol dependency. CBT seeks to solve problems by changing destructive behavioral and thinking patterns. Along with its use in the field of substance addiction, CBT is also used to treat anxiety disorders, depression disorders, personality problems, psychotic disorders, tics and a range of mood disorders. CBT has six separate phases: assessment, reconceptualization, skills acquisition, skills consolidation, generalization and maintenance, and post-treatment assessment.
Motivational interviewing (MI) is another form of behavioral therapy used in drug treatment, with the fundamental concepts of MI developed by psychologists Professor William R Miller, Ph.D. and Professor Stephen Rollnick, PH.D. Motivational incentives are a direct and goal-oriented approach, with this client-centered style of counseling helping patients to engage their intrinsic motivation and change their behavior as a result. MI is available through a number of drug rehab centers, with both out-patient and residential programs offering this powerful form of behavioral therapy.
12-step programs are a set of guiding principles designed to help people with alcoholism, drug addiction and compulsive behavior. Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), 12-step programs have become a staple of drug and alcohol treatment over the years. According to the American Psychological Association, the initial 12-steps involved these six processes: admitting lack of control, recognizing a higher power, examining past errors, making amends for these errors, learning to live a new life with a code of behavior, and helping others with a same problem.
A number of new treatment strategies have been developed in recent times, including art therapy, music therapy, restorative yoga, biofeedback, general spirituality, moral reconation therapy (MRT) and gender-based therapies. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers offer these new therapies alongside general counseling and traditional 12-step approaches, giving patients the opportunity to choose the right therapy for their individual situation.
