Conditions and Issues Treated

A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

  • Alcoholism

    Alcoholism is one of the most common addictions in Park Rapids, Minnesota. Alcohol addiction (often referred to as alcoholism or alcohol use disorder) is characterized by a deep craving for alcohol and the inability to quit drinking regardless of any adverse effects. Alcohol use disorder ensues when the chemical changes from long-term alcohol use drive the brain to acclimate to normal functions creating a dependency. Many people who struggle with alcoholism find it challenging to quit without the help of a treatment facility such as A Better Connection. The alcoholism treatment at A Better Connection in Park Rapids, Park Rapids, Minnesota is designed to give you the support you need to quit drinking once and for all.

  • Drug Addiction

    Drug addiction is a chronic disease characterized by a physical and psychological dependency on drugs. Drug addiction occurs when extensive drug use causes changes in a person’s brain chemistry, resulting in uncontrollable cravings to use regardless of the adverse effects. The only way to overcome drug addiction or other addiction disorders is to receive addiction treatment. A Better Connection in Park Rapids, Minnesota offers many treatment options for those struggling with drug addiction. If you or someone you love is struggling with drug addiction, get help as soon as possible. Prolonged drug use can result in a destructive addiction cycle where you must continue using drugs to avoid distressing withdrawal symptoms. Regardless of your situation, help is available in Park Rapids, Minnesota.

  • Dual Diagnosis

    Several treatment options are available in Park Rapids, Park Rapids, Minnesota to treat individuals with dual diagnoses. In addiction treatment, a dual diagnosis, also known as co-occurring disorder or comorbidity, is when someone suffers from two or more disorders at the same time, such as a drug use disorder and depressive disorder. Integrated treatment for a mental illness and substance use disorder is generally most effective for someone struggling with a dual-diagnosis disorder compared to separate treatments for each condition. Treatment of dual-diagnosis disorders at A Better Connection in Park Rapids, Park Rapids, Minnesota includes knowledgeable addiction treatment professionals providing effective services that treat the whole person and supports overall health and recovery.

  • Opioid Addiction

    Opioids/opiates are among the most addictive substances worldwide. Prescribed for various medical needs, opioids encompass a large class of prescription drugs such as morphine, oxycodone, and hydrocodone, and illegal substances such as heroin and opium. People who misuse opioids can develop an opioid addiction very quickly. Opioid addiction, also known as an opioid use disorder, is a condition in which someone compulsively seeks the drug. In Park Rapids, Park Rapids, Minnesota, there are many treatment options to choose from for an opioid/opiate addiction. The most effective form of opioid addiction treatment is drug detox, followed by inpatient drug rehab. A Better Connection in Park Rapids, Park Rapids, Minnesota offers opioid addiction treatment tailored to your unique needs and situation.

  • Substance Abuse

    Substance abuse refers to the act of misusing drugs or alcohol. Substance abuse problems can refer to illicit drugs — such as heroin, cocaine, or methamphetamine — or legal drugs, such as alcohol or prescription medications. Substances frequently abused in Park Rapids, Park Rapids, Minnesota include alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs, methamphetamine, cocaine, opiates/opioids, hallucinogens, and more. The main difference between substance abuse and drug addiction is that individuals with substance abuse problems can quit or change their unhealthy habits. In contrast, addiction is a disease in which someone can’t just stop using when their addiction causes them harm. People engaged in substance abuse put themselves at risk for developing a substance use disorder, a severe mental health condition that can make it difficult for people to stop using drugs or alcohol on their own. A Better Connection in Park Rapids, Park Rapids, Minnesota works to address substance abuse and help people to build fulfilling lives in recovery.

  • Addiction Treatment

    If you're dealing with a drug or alcohol addiction in Park Rapids, Minnesota, there are many ways to get help.

  • Aftercare

    When you join our IOP at A Better Connection, you'll come in for treatment a few times a week, for a few hours each time. It's a step up from our regular outpatient program because you'll spend more time with us. This program is great for people who want to get strong treatment but still live at home.

  • Partial Hospitalization Program

    A partial hospitalization program (PHP), also called day treatment, is a type of outpatient care.

After spending their day at the program, they go back to their own homes or live in places that help them stay sober, like sober living homes. These programs are really important because they help people build a strong foundation for long-term health and staying free from addiction. They are a great choice for those who need help with addiction but prefer not to stay at a treatment center all the time.
