Comprehensive Atlanta Addiction Treatment

An Integrated Approach

Meeting Patients Where They Are

Reversing the effects of long-term substance abuse takes a multifaceted approach that may include medication to control cravings, psychotherapy to deal with mental health issues, addiction counseling to build life skills, and long-term support from a network of sober peers. Lasting recovery also takes commitment – although not everyone who walks through our doors initially feels a sense of commitment to their sobriety.

Many people are deeply ambivalent about giving up alcohol or drugs, or even angry that they are in drug and alcohol rehab. This is the alcohol and drugs talking, and it takes time to allow the individual’s true voice to emerge out of the chaos of addiction. Over time, using techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), we work with each patient to build that sense of meaning and purpose that can help them want to sustain their recovery.

Integrated Treatment for Addiction & Dual Diagnoses

We provide integrated treatment for addiction and mental health disorders, beginning with a comprehensive assessment to accurately diagnose any issues impacting wellbeing. An individualized recovery plan is developed to meet each patient’s unique needs.

Comprehensive Assessment

Every patient at our Atlanta treatment center for drugs and alcohol receives a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment from our expert clinical team as a starting point for care. This is where we get to know each individual, their struggles and their history, so together we can chart a path forward.

The assessment includes an evaluation of their addiction, physical health and mental health. Through the evaluation, we determine the safest and most appropriate setting for detox, as well as screen for symptoms of dual disorders such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders and trauma that should be treated alongside the addiction. Families are included in this process.

Individualized Care

Our substance abuse treatment program is both evidence-based and individualized. Our clinicians are up-to-date on the most recent research and advances in addiction treatment, and use these proven techniques as a basis for our program.

At the same time, we recognize that each individual is unique. Every patient comes to us with their own set of experiences and personal genetic, biological and psychological makeup. We take all of those factors into account when developing an addiction treatment plan.

Integrated Treatment for Dual Diagnoses

Dual diagnoses, also called co-occurring disorders, are mental health conditions that occur alongside drug and alcohol addiction. Dual diagnoses are very common. People experiencing a mental illness such as depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or anxiety may turn to substance use as a way to cope. The AARC team is experienced in identifying and treating co-occurring disorders. Helping patients manage and overcome mental health conditions creates a strong foundation for lasting sobriety.

Trauma-Informed Approach

Psychological and emotional trauma, whether from childhood or adult life, is a major contributor to addiction for many people. Our team includes experts with specialized training, including a groundbreaking therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), that help individuals cope with past trauma, and ultimately move beyond it. By taking away the power of traumatic experiences to cause mental distress, patients feel better, and find that their need to self-medicate with alcohol or drugs is also diminished.

Addiction is
Treatable

Substance abuse treatment for alcohol or drugs such as heroin, prescription pain pills or other drugs begins with recognizing the seriousness of the problem and having the courage to ask for help. No matter how long you have been suffering with addiction, or how bad life has gotten as a result, our Atlanta addiction rehab can help turn your life around. We will assess your current addiction, make sure you receive effective treatment for co-occurring mental health conditions that can derail recovery, and help you learn skills and tools to sustain recovery for the long-term. We will ensure you feel supported and cared for, each step of the way.
