Northpoint Launches New Facility in Omaha Called Northpoint Nebraska
Omaha, Neb. — Northpoint, a company that offers a complete range of behavioral healthcare services in addiction treatment centers across the Western United States, has recently launched a new treatment facility in Omaha called Northpoint Nebraska. They offer various programs for people who are struggling with addiction, such as: alcohol detox and rehab; drug detox and rehab; Adderall treatment; cocaine addiction treatment; and co-occurring disorders treatment.
“I am extremely proud of what we have created at Northpoint Recovery because we get to do something we love and help people change their lives,” says John Flanagan, CEO at Northpoint Recovery. “We provide in-house treatment for substance addiction, mental health conditions, and medical care needs. And we take an integrated approach. This means that we don’t only address the physical symptoms of addiction, but also the root causes, and any underlying mental health conditions that may contribute to your addiction.”
At Northpoint, they fully understand how alcohol dependency and addiction can develop due to various reason. Factors that may contribute include the person’s history, reasons for drinking, genetic disposition, and mental health condition. All of these factors will be considered when a treatment program for a particular individual is developed. Before patients are cleared to undergo alcohol rehab, they need to undergo supervised detox to make sure that all alcohol and toxins have been removed from their system. This will usually take seven days to complete.
Similarly, drug detox will address an individual’s physical dependence on drugs, which means getting rid of the various drug effects and toxins. Specialized medications and therapeutic activities will be provided to help the patient manage the withdrawal symptoms. Drug detox will usually last for seven days.
Northpoint can offer both inpatient rehab and outpatient programs. The outpatient programs can either be partial hospitalization programs (PHP) or intensive outpatient programs (IOP). Inpatient programs are recommended for those who have severe addictions. In an inpatient program, patients will be staying in a supportive and safe environment where they can get 24/7 support from a complete medical team and get prescription medications to reduce withdrawal symptoms. Inpatient rehab lasts for about 21 days and will usually start after the withdrawal symptoms have dissipated after detox. The focus is then on the psychological aspects of the addiction. This will allow the patient to comprehend the root causes of the substance abuse, how keep the brain functioning normally without using drugs, and how to manage relapse triggers.
After inpatient rehab, patients can shift to a more flexible outpatient program. This allows them to get back to their natural home environment and apply what they have learned in inpatient rehab. Patients will continue to get support to ensure that they keep a sober lifestyle.
Meanwhile, those who have moderate addictions can opt for outpatient treatment. This is designed to accommodate their job, school work, and other commitments. People receiving outpatient treatment will stay at home and go the Northpoint facility to get treatment. This scheduled treatment will last for 10 to 30 hours each week, depending on the needs of the individual.
There are various services included in their inpatient and rehab programs. These include: relapse prevention; integrated treatment and medical intervention; psychiatric care and medications for co-occurring disorders; family therapy; cognitive behavioral therapy; and dual-diagnosis therapy process groups.
Relapse prevention has to do with coping with cravings that will become part of the person’s daily routine. Integrated treatment and medical intervention means that the patient learns how and why addiction occurs, how to control volatile emotions, how to rebuild and maintain relationships, and how to promote good health in all of the person’s endeavors. Cognitive behavioral therapy is provided to help the patients modify their destructive and addictive behaviors.
