Drug Detox |Counseling and 12-Step Programs

Completing a drug detox is not as easy as it may sound, and for those who are able to work through the physical and emotional withdrawal there is still more work to do. A drug detox at Pat Moore Foundation helps you get past the initial hurdle. After the initial drug detox, using possibly Suboxone, you’ll work thorough your 30 days of inpatient care, and you’ll also need to start making a plan for aftercare. This consists of a plan to stay clean and sober beyond the doors of our facility.

This part of care is as different as treatment is for the addict. Each addict is different, each addict experiences drug detox differently, so as they will also experience aftercare in a different manner. Some recovering addicts have a home with loving, supportive family members and friends, some do not. For those who do not there are other drug treatment options.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is modeled after Alcoholics Anonymous, and is a network of community-based meetings for those recovering from drug addiction. It’s a 12-step program with a defined process for overcoming narcotic addiction. In principle though, NA is opposed to the use of any maintenance therapy, so Methadone Anonymous, a 12-step program acknowledges the value of Suboxone in recovery from narcotic addiction.

Pat Moore Foundation recommends participation in a 12-step program or other form of counseling. Therapy can take place as an outpatient, or in a residential facility. Alternatives to 12-step programs include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Family and couples therapy
