How to Help a Loved One

Helping a family member or loved one get treatment for addiction

When someone you care about is struggling with addiction, it’s common to experience a wide range of emotions. You may be confused, afraid, frustrated, or even angry. These are perfectly understandable reactions. However, although your loved one’s struggles pose significant challenges, it’s important to know that the situation is not hopeless, and you are not helpless. Please consider the following:

  • Educate yourself about addiction. The more you understand what your loved one is experiencing, the better prepared you will be to provide meaningful assistance.
  • Learn about addiction treatment options. Identify addiction treatment facilities in your area that provide the type and level of care that seem to be the best fit for your loved one.
  • Remember that there’s no such thing as one perfect addiction treatment center. What’s most important is finding the resource that best meets your loved one’s needs.
  • Talk to your loved one. Express your concern, emphasize your love and support, and share the information you’ve gathered about addiction treatment options.
  • Listen to your loved one. Their willingness or hesitance to discuss their struggles or consider treatment can guide your next steps.
  • If your loved one is not willing to get help now, don’t argue or issue an ultimatum. It may take many conversations to get your loved one to accept the need for treatment. Keep the lines of communication open.
  • Get help for yourself. Enlist a small group of trusted friends or family members to help you support your loved one. If the emotional strain becomes too difficult, schedule a session with a therapist or counselor for yourself.
  • Contact the addiction treatment centers you’ve been considering. These resources can provide guidance on how to help an individual who is not yet willing to enter treatment for addiction.

Finally, remember that addiction treatment is one part of a long-term effort. Your loved one will need your support before, during, and after their time in treatment for addiction. Set realistic expectations, prepare for both successes and setbacks, and plan to be a source of continued love and support for months and years to come.

Why Consider Treatment

Why consider getting addiction treatment at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

Addiction is a chronic and progressive disease. This means that, in the absence of effective professional treatment, the symptoms and effects of addiction are likely to get worse.

It is difficult to overstate the degree to which untreated addiction can negatively impact your life. Untreated addiction can have a devastating effect on your physical and mental health. Substance abuse and chemical dependency are associated with increased risk for a wide range of medical problems and a variety of co-occurring mental and behavioral health disorders.

Without proper treatment for addiction, you may struggle to form and maintain healthy relationships, make suitable academic progress, get and keep a job, achieve financial security, and otherwise fully engage in a productive and satisfying lifestyle. You may struggle with low self-esteem and a loss of confidence. You may withdraw or become isolated from friends and family members. The cumulative impact of these setbacks can increase your risk for suicidal thoughts.

However, when you seek effective professional treatment for addiction, you significantly reduce the likelihood that you will experience continued harm. While you’re receiving treatment for addiction, you can also begin to heal from past damage. When you begin your recovery journey at an addiction treatment center such as Bradford Recovery Center, you’ll receive the comprehensive, personalized care that will empower you to achieve long-term success.

With our help, you can make the lifestyle changes that will free you from the chains and limitations of addiction.

Types of Addiction Treatment Offered at Bradford Recovery Center

Our commitment to personalized care means that every adult who receives addiction treatment services at Bradford Recovery Center will have a unique experience with us.

One of your first activities at our addiction treatment center in Millerton, PA, will be to complete a thorough assessment. Your treatment team will use the information that’s collected during this assessment to develop your personalized addiction treatment plan. Based on a host of individual factors, that plan may include the following elements:

Detoxification: Depending upon the nature and severity of your struggles with addiction, you may need to complete detox prior to starting residential treatment. At Bradford Recovery Center, we provide subacute, nonhospital medical detox to help adults get through withdrawal with maximum safety and minimal discomfort. Our detox program features both medical and therapeutic support. Typical length of stay in detox is about five days, after which you can transition directly to our residential addiction treatment program.

Medication management: Some adults who receive treatment for addiction and certain co-occurring mental health challenges benefit from the use of prescription medications to ease their symptoms. We offer medication management services on an as-needed basis to all adults who receive treatment at our residential addiction treatment facility in Millerton, PA.

Basic medical care: During your time in treatment for addiction with us, you’ll benefit from round-the-clock nursing care, as well as access to an on-call doctor. These professionals can provide basic medical services, such as minor wound care and assistance for individuals who have diabetes. If at any point during your time at our addiction treatment center you develop medical concerns that require a higher level of care, we’ll refer you to a trusted provider in the Millerton, PA, area who can meet your needs.

Individual therapy: One-on-one sessions with an experienced professional can be a vital component of your personalized treatment for addiction. During individual therapy sessions, you can process the successes and setbacks you’ve experienced, address issues that you may be hesitant to discuss in a group setting, and receive focused feedback from a member of your addiction treatment team. Throughout your time at Bradford Recovery Center, you’ll take part in at least one individual therapy session per week. Additional sessions can be scheduled as needed.

Group therapy: Groups are an integral part of residential treatment for addiction at Bradford Recovery Center. We offer multiple groups every day, with a range of options to ensure that you can participate in the sessions that are best for you. The following are examples of common group topics:

  • Relapse prevention
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Seeking Safety
  • Fellowship
  • Mental health
  • Gender-specific
  • Fun in recovery
  • Laughter

We also provide a wide range of additional group-oriented events, such as volleyball, kickball, team-building activities, and other opportunities for you to engage in healthy and productive interactions with our staff members and others who are receiving care at our addiction treatment facility in Millerton, PA.

Family program: At Bradford Recovery Center, we understand that addiction can have a profound impact on family members and close friends. We also appreciate the important role that loved ones can play during and after an adult’s time in residential treatment for addiction. For these reasons, we offer a vibrant family support program, including services for adolescent family members age 15 and older.

Continuing Care After Inpatient Treatment for Addiction

Continuing care options for addiction treatment

Completing residential treatment for addiction and co-occurring mental health challenges can be an essential step on your path toward improved health. But your time in treatment is just one part of your recovery journey. To ensure that you’re prepared for long-term success, we place great emphasis on detailed discharge planning, alumni services, and other forms of support to promote continuing care.

Throughout your time at our addiction treatment center in Millerton, PA, your team will be preparing for the day you transition out of our care. When that day arrives, you will have a detailed discharge plan to guide you in the weeks and months to come. As with all aspects of addiction treatment at Bradford Recovery Center, this plan will be personalized according to your unique needs and goals.

Your discharge plan may include information about community-based organizations, referrals to step-down services, connections with peer-led support services, and other resources that will help you in your efforts to achieve and maintain long-term recovery from addiction.

Your discharge plan will also include information about our alumni community. We sponsor a multitude of events to promote fellowship and mutual support among the many people who have completed treatment with us. Participating in alumni events is a great way to develop beneficial relationships with others who are walking the path of long-term recovery.

To learn more about continuing care after completing treatment for addiction, or for additional information about any aspect of our programming, please contact Bradford Recovery Center at your earliest convenience. We’re available 24/7 to answer all your questions and help you determine if our residential addiction treatment facility in Millerton, PA, is the perfect place for you or your loved one.

I was resistant to go to treatment. I never thought it could change my life the way it did. The staff, the groups, the people, everything about this place has changed my life for the better. For anyone on the fence about getting help, please take Bradford into consideration - it really saved my life in more ways than one.
