Our Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program in North Dakota
We don’t just treat the symptoms of alcohol abuse. Our team helps you get to the root causes of your harmful behaviors. People who struggle with addiction are often trying to numb emotional pain. Treatment at Prairie Recovery Center includes individual sessions with a trained counselor where you’ll explore situations that might fuel substance abuse.
Some of these issues might include:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex trauma
- Challenging relationships during childhood
- Growing up with drug or alcohol users
- Poor self-worth
- Mental health issues such as anxiety and depression
- Socioemotional factors
Group Counseling with Peers
In addition to individual behavioral therapy, you’ll attend several small groups every day. Group therapy offers a safe, supportive setting to develop relapse prevention skills and connect with others in recovery.
Group therapy helps you:
- Find solutions to your problems
- Improve interpersonal skills
- Feel less isolated
- Develop supportive friendships
Attention to Co-Occurring Disorders
People with substance use disorders frequently struggle with mental health disorders. This is known as a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders. For example, some research shows up to 80% of people with alcohol use disorders have depression. Other research finds people addicted to alcohol are at four times greater risk of having anxiety.
You may have started to abuse alcohol to help ease psychiatric symptoms. Drugs and alcohol may take the edge off issues like anxiety and depression at first, but over time, substance abuse backfires. Psychiatric symptoms ultimately get worse, and dependency on alcohol develops. We’re trained to treat the wide range of psychiatric issues that accompany drug and alcohol abuse.
These include mental health disorders such as:
- Depression and other mood disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Personality disorders like a borderline personality disorder
- Anxiety disorders
- Trauma disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Learning relapse prevention skills is a critical part of addiction treatment. You’ll spend a lot of time at Prairie Recovery Center preparing for life after treatment, such as practicing self-care activities to replace drinking alcohol. We’ll help you build a toolbox of resources and practices you’ll draw upon in challenging times. You’ll also learn to manage mental health disorder symptoms and other issues leading to substance abuse relapse.
