Prior Authorization: If you’re interested in seeing an outpatient or detox provider who is not on the list above you will need prior authorization. You will also need prior authorization before starting inpatient or residential treatment services. WVP Health Authority can help you navigate this process; call them today at (503) 371-7701.
Assessment usually begins during program admission and continues throughout treatment. It includes substance abuse history, urinalysis, and determining if criteria are met for a SUD diagnosis. Assessment also may involve determining patient motivation and readiness for change. The ASAM Assessment is used to determine which Level of Care you will need.
This is done to see what kind of substances are in your system. This is done at the beginning of treatment, several times while in treatment and a final UA before completion of treatment.
A person’s recovery doesn’t stop as soon as they have completed a treatment program. It is important to continue to work on your relapse prevention. This can include attending recovery groups, continuing with counseling, learning new skills, and mentoring others in recovery.
People who have substance use disorders as well as mental health disorders are diagnosed as having co-occurring disorders. This is also sometimes called dual diagnosis.
This is one-on-one counseling with your treatment provider. Individual sessions also mean that your counselor has more time to work with you in a more private setting.
Meeting with other people who are facing the same struggles that you are can offer a “big picture” giving you a different perspective. Group sessions add the benefit of encouragement and accountability. You will build new relationships with others who are in the same challenging position as you, the participants can keep an eye out on one another and provide strength and support when needed.
Family Involved Therapy
Education of families about how the substance use can affect families. Actual Family Therapy is done by a licensed therapist and, if needed, a referral can be done. Also, family and friends are highly encouraged to attend Al Anon or Nar Anon meetings. These free programs are held around the nation and are dedicated to providing group support to drug and alcohol addicted individuals’ family and friends.
The best way to prevent sudden relapse is to understand warning signs of addiction and factors that commonly lead to relapse. Factors vary for each person and situation, but relapse causes include emotional triggers, social situations and physical changes.
This includes services that help in applying for, or referrals to, needed medical, social, education or other services. This can include help finding drug and alcohol free housing.
Peer Recovery Support Services
A person who has been successful in the recovery process and can assist with tasks such as setting recovery goals, developing recovery action plans, and solving problems directly related to recovery, including finding sober housing, making new friends, finding new uses of spare time, and improving one’s job skills. They may also help with issues such as criminal record or physical or mental challenges.
These programs require you to stay at a chemical dependency facility for 24 hours a day for approximately 30 days, although that can vary based on need. In order to be admitted to a residential facility, you must first have an alcohol and drug assessment. This is usually done by an outpatient agency. The outpatient agency can help get you into a residential facility, although it may take some time (usually 1-3 months). It is best to attend outpatient services while you are waiting for a residential bed to open.
Detoxification is considered the first step in addiction recovery. It is important because it’s the process that allows drugs and alcohol to leave your body. The length of your detox is determined by your specific needs, usually no longer than 7 days.
Medication Assisted Treatment (Methadone and Suboxone)
The use of medications during addiction recovery helps with reducing the painful withdrawal symptoms and reduces cravings. It is expected that the patient will participate in counseling and therapy in order to address the underlying issues. The most popular medication assisted therapies are used to treat addiction to opiates and alcohol.
