There are many different types of treatment to help you overcome your addiction and maintain recovery. Landmark Recovery of Indianapolis specializes in evidence-based addiction treatment program options and offers them to you locally right here in Indianapolis.
Addiction is a chronic and often relapsing disorder characterized by the impulsive seeking and use of certain substances, such as alcohol or drugs, to the point that it takes over a person’s life and causes harm. This complex but treatable disease stems from complex interactions among brain circuits, genetics, the environment, and one’s personal life experiences. 1 Addiction, also referred to as substance use disorder, changes how the brain works by altering areas of the brain associated with judgment, decision making, learning, memory and behavior control. 2
An addiction is a form of illness, just like heart disease and cancer. And as is the case for other chronic diseases, there are effective addiction treatments in Indianapolis available that can help you successfully manage your addiction so that you can live a full and rewarding life.
The high prevalence substance abuse continues to be a major public health concern for the state of Indiana. Alcohol is the most frequently abused substance in the Indiana, with survey results showing that nearly 1 in 4 Hoosiers over the age of 12 has engaged in binge drinking in the past month. 3 More than 1 in 8 Indiana residents currently use an illicit drug, and 1 in 22 has misused prescription opioid drugs in the past year. Polysubstance use, the abuse of two or more substances over a defined period either simultaneously or at differing times, is also a major concern. According to the Treatment Episode Data Set maintained by the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, the use of two or more substances was reported in nearly two-thirds of all admissions to Indiana addiction treatment facilities in the last year. 4
According to recent results from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 7% of Indiana residents met the criteria for substance use disorder in the past year. 3 This includes nearly 5% of the Indiana population struggling with alcoholism, 3% battling an illicit drug use disorder, and nearly 1% suffering from an addiction to opioid pain relievers. Tragically, 92% of Hoosiers in need of treatment last year did not receive any form of treatment for their addiction. 3
At Landmark Recovery, we take a science-based, personalized approach to drug and alcohol addiction treatment in Indianapolis. Every patient undergoes an initial medical assessment and receives a specialized treatment plan that addresses their specific recovery risks and challenges. Depending on your substance of abuse and severity of addiction, your program will consist of a combination of residential treatment, partial hospitalization, and outpatient services. We may also consider incorporating medication-assisted treatment as a part of your recovery. These medications will help reduce cravings, lessen the adverse side effects of withdrawal symptoms, and prevent relapse.
Prior to starting any form of alcohol addiction treatment, you must first stop all substance use and go through detoxification (also commonly called detox), a process that involves flushing out all traces of drugs and alcohol from your system. Due to the pain and discomfort associated with your body’s response to withdrawal, we recommend undergoing detox at an Indianapolis addiction treatment center. Landmark Recovery offers medically supervised detox to ensure that you are kept as safe and comfortable as possible during your entire detoxification. Our around-the-clock monitoring will allow us to quickly recognize and address any potential life-threatening complications, and trained clinicians can administer various medications to treat specific symptoms of withdrawal.
After the completion of detox, you will be smoothly transitioned into one of our evidence-based treatment programs. During this time, you will participate in individual, group, and family counseling in addition to various behavioral therapies that will identify underlying causes of addiction and shape new ways of thinking to provide you with the tools needed to prevent relapse.
