Substance Abuse Counseling Lancaster CA
The main service offered at New Day Rehab Center is substance abuse counseling, which tackles both drug and alcohol addiction. Our rehabilitation counseling focuses on tackling the dependence of psychoactive substances such as alcohol, drugs, cannabis, cocaine, heroin, amphetamines and more, through therapeutic treatment and support.
Every resident undergoing substance abuse counseling in Lancaster CA will receive treatment planning, mindfulness and goal settings, as well as relapse prevention and an aftercare plan. The aftercare plan is a collaborative effort between New Day’s counselors and our residents to find the best Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Out-patient Program (IOP) in their area, allowing our residents to continue receiving the help they need.
- Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol addiction, or alcoholism, is a chronic disease characterized by uncontrolled consumption and preoccupation with alcohol due to physical and emotional dependence . People suffering from alcoholism have a strong need or urge to use alcohol, even when it causes them physical harm. Those who suffer from alcohol addiction often struggle to control their drinking. When they rapidly decrease or cease alcohol consumption, they often experience withdrawal symptoms.
Therapy can help patients recover
At New Day Rehab Center, we understand that alcoholism falls under ailments that can be curtailed by substance abuse counseling. Counseling can range from behavioral therapy to the prescription of medications that can reduce the desire to drink. Some people need medical assistance to stop drinking safely, which is a service we offer through our detox facility. Mutual support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, can help people stop drinking, manage relapses and cope with necessary lifestyle changes. New Day Rehab Center hosts virtual AA meetings and offers group therapy discussions in-house to help residents dealing with alcoholism.
- Drug Addiction
Much like alcohol addiction, drug addiction is when a person depends on drugs, whether it’s cannabis, prescription medication (Vicodin, Xanax, etc.), cocaine, heroin, amphetamines and more. Counseling can range from behavioral therapy to medications that reduce the desire to use substances. Some people require medical assistance to stop using substances safely, a service which we offer through our detox facility. Mutual support groups, such as Narcotics Anonymous, can also help people stop using substances, manage relapses and cope with necessary lifestyle changes. New Day Rehab Center hosts virtual NA meetings and offers in-house group therapy discussions to help residents dealing with drug addiction.
Dual diagnosis counseling is one of our top priorities
- Dual Diagnosis Treatment
If you have been diagnosed with dual diagnosis, that means there are one or more co-occurring mental disorders with a drug or alcohol addiction. People suffering from dual diagnosis often see one condition contributing to, or even worsening the other, making it feel nearly impossible to break this pattern.
At New Day Rehab Center, our mental health experts identify the contributing disorders that may be amplifying your addiction so they can customize a recovery plan and offer substance abuse counseling in Lancaster CA based on your individual needs. We understand that treating only one side of a dual diagnosis won’t solve anything, so we treat both conditions as well as the resident’s mind and body.
- Art and Music Therapy
Some of the best tools to aid substance abuse counseling are art and music therapy. Art and music therapy can help residents overcome substance abuse, as these activities allow residents to refocus their energy into creative outlets that inspire and calm them.
Art and music therapy has many benefits:
- Improves self-management
- Aids any communication or oral-motor difficulties
- Reduces stress
- Builds self-esteem
- Provides a positive distraction
