Psychotherapy: receiving individual therapy with a clinical therapist, both in individual sessions and while participating in group counseling sessions facilitated by an addiction specialist. Involves the application of evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, contingency management, and dialectical behavior therapy .
Education: Clients recovering from a Vicodin and alcohol addiction will benefit from learning about the physiology and neurology of how addiction develops and alters brain structures. Classes will equip clients with recovery tools to access when confronting triggers or cravings, as well as involve making a relapse prevention plan.
Medication-assisted treatment: Medication management may be beneficial for some clients with the polydrug addiction. MAT involves using medication that helps clients become less responsive to the opioids and alcohol by blocking the receptors in the brain. This causes a decline in drug or alcohol cravings, which reduces the risk of relapse.
Recovery groups: Participation in a recovery community, such as SMART recovery, A.A. or N.A. can provide additional social support and accountability. These groups can offer opportunities to make new sober friendships, to gain a sponsor, and to become involved in service to others.
Complementary Therapies: participating in adjunct therapies that will enhance recovery, such as yoga, journaling, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), art therapy, equine therapy, aromatherapy, or meditation.
