Signs and Symptoms of Substance Use Disorder

There are a variety of signs and symptoms of substance abuse. Frequent intoxication or being hungover is the most common, but there are additional behavior changes you might see, such as:

  • Increased consumption or developing a tolerance to a substance
  • Inability to stop when you want or given a good reason
  • Withdrawal or detox symptoms when trying to stop using the substance
  • Mood swings
  • Decrease in motivation
  • The substance consumes your life
  • Absent at family functions, family stress
  • Relationship issues
  • Appetite changes
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Lack of self-care
  • Issues at work or being unable to complete daily tasks
  • Financial problems

All substances have different signs of intoxication or withdrawal; detoxing from certain drugs or alcohol can be life-threatening. At Longbranch Recovery, we ease withdrawal symptoms by providing a medically supervised detox so you can start the treatment process with a clear mind.  

Types of Substance Addictions We Treat

At Longbranch Recovery, we specialize in treating various substance use disorders.

Alcohol Addiction can affect a person’s daily life and ranges from mild to severe. A person with mild alcohol addiction may suffer from binge drinking. They maintain periods of sobriety, followed by periods of excessive drinking. 

Some binge drinkers need medically supervised detox, and some don’t. This population is unique since they can put stretches of sobriety together but cannot maintain them for an extended period. At Longbranch Recovery and Wellness Center’s intensive alcohol rehab program, we get to the root of the issue causing the alcohol binges so you can return to life and sustain sobriety.

Men and women with more severe alcohol abuse may have become daily drinkers and may experience withdrawal when they try to stop. For most addicts, detox is crucial. Withdrawal from alcohol can be fatal if not managed by a trained medical team. 

Once patients have safely detoxed, they enter an addiction treatment program that provides the skills to achieve long-term recovery. 

Drug addiction is also called substance use disorder. It is characterized by the abuse of drugs, illicit or prescription, with the inability to stop without a drug rehab program despite the harm it is causing to the person’s life. 

Some of the drug addictions we provide treatment for at Longbranch Recovery and Wellness Center are:

  • Opiate Abuse
  • Heroin Abuse
  • Painkiller Addiction
  • Prescription Drug Abuse
  • Benzodiazepine (Xanax) Abuse
  • Meth Abuse
  • Cocaine / Crack Addiction
  • Marijuana Addiction
  • Suboxone Addiction
  • Dextromethorphan (Cough Syrup) Abuse
  • Kratom Addiction
  • Polysubstance addictive disorder

Each substance has a unique detox protocol and specific issues that must be addressed. For example, heroin detox can cause sweating, nausea, and body aches. Therefore, we will create a detox plan designed to help alleviate these specific symptoms. Once detox is complete, we implement individualized addiction recovery plans for each client, providing the skills and tools needed to sustain long-term sobriety. 

Our Substance Abuse Treatment Options in New Orleans, Louisiana

Substance abuse presents differently for everyone, and treatment should not be one-size-fits-all. We offer a full continuum of care at Longbranch Recovery, providing client-centered therapy designed for long-term addiction recovery

Detox: The first step in an addiction treatment center is completing detox. Here, we offer a full medical detox in a home away from home setting. With 24/7 medical care, we ensure that you or your loved one can detox comfortably and with minimal physical discomfort. Detox can vary based on each person’s age and substance use history, but most clients complete detox in 5-7 days.

Inpatient/Residential Program: One of the many benefits of Longbranch Recovery and Wellness Center is that our detox and residential programs are offered on the same campus. After detox, you will seamlessly transfer into our inpatient treatment facility. Treatment stays vary in length of stay from 45-90 days and are based on your addiction history and any co-occurring disorders you may have. Our specialized professional treatment programs include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, and various experiential therapy modalities with a focus on women’s and men’s specific addiction issues. This holistic approach sets the foundation for sobriety.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP): Our outpatient treatment is designed to maximize your time at Longbranch Recovery. Participants can expect to receive a minimum of 10 clinical service hours each week, including group and individual sessions. IOP groups cover coping mechanisms, drug and alcohol abuse education, and relapse prevention. Entering an intensive outpatient program provides continued support and the ability to learn how to navigate life in sobriety. 

Aftercare: The risk of relapse is highest within the first few months after treatment. Developing a comprehensive aftercare plan, with needed support groups, can help prevent relapse. Whether you would like to continue your one-on-one therapy sessions or get involved with your local Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, we can help. Our case managers ensure that you will have the tools necessary to maintain your recovery, remain connected with like-minded people, and handle every obstacle that comes your way.

We Use Evidence-Based Treatment Therapies for Substance Abuse

Longbranch Recovery and Wellness Center creates dual diagnosis treatment plans utilizing various evidence-based therapies so you or your loved one receive the tools needed to maintain sobriety while making it easy to stay engaged in treatment. Some of the modalities we use are:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)
  • Experiential Therapy
  • 12 Step Integration
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PET)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

We utilize these modalities in a variety of individual and group settings. 

Individual Therapy:

One-on-one work with a therapist allows the individuals we treat to develop a trusting therapeutic relationship with their counselor. Providing a safe space to address their mental health issues, process their addiction, and heal from traumas that may have led them to alcohol or drug abuse. 

Group Therapy:

At Longbranch Recovery, group therapy is integral to our substance abuse treatment program. Our unique program has created an environment for people to connect and become vulnerable about the past. Connecting with others who have had similar struggles helps you feel less alone.

Family Therapy:

Often, clients seeking treatment have strained family relationships due to substance abuse. Longbranch Recovery offers an intensive family program so that not only can our clients begin to heal, but so can their families. With a trained family therapist, you will learn new communication skills to help you navigate life in recovery with your loved one.
