ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTERS IN SPOKANE, WASHINGTON

The major problem plaguing the Spokane County is the abuse of illicit drug Methamphetamine. Certain factors, which contributed to Spokane drug problems, involved family problems, easy availability of the drugs, lack of commitment or interest in school, community laws which were favorable to usage of drugs, peer pressure, and economic problems. The Healthy Youth Survey found that alcohol was most abused by the youth. 46% of students participating in the survey admitted to alcohol consumption in that particular month. The rampant misuse of prescription drugs was also a matter of great concern within Spokane. 12% of the students admitted using prescription drugs to achieve a high during the past month, according to results from the Healthy Youth Survey.

The Spokane drug rehab centers have been active in implementing the Access to Recovery Program, which ensured support during the recovery process to the patients who enrolled in the detoxification treatment. Our website carries contact details of the various rehab centers in the Spokane County with the various treatment program briefly outlined. Support services include consultation with specialists for counseling, setting of objectives or realistic goals, program tailor made to suit your recovery progress, assistance in getting lodging and employment, meetings with support groups after treatment transportation etc.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering from either and/or both?

I view substance abuse and addictive behaviors in general as acts of self soothing that can damage and get in the way of healthy engagement/connection between individuals in relationships.  I prefer to work with folks once they are in recovery and there is enough safety and trust to begin relationship repair and fully engage in the process of therapy.  Trying to repair a relationship when substance abuse is ongoing is impossible.

Rachel Baker
Rachel Baker
Spokane, WA 99201

What types of services do you offer?

 

Being a Licensed Social Worker and a Chemical Dependency Professional, I offer services to individual, couples and families working through with a wide range of situations. This includes assisting people explore and recover from mental health issues only, addiction issues only, or a combination of the two.  I provide services to people 13 years old and up.

 

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

 

Motivational Interviewing is the underpinning that runs throughout nearly all of my communications with people.  I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and psychoeducational elements in order to assist people in living a happier and healthier life. Therapy is individualized and directed by the client.

 

When should one seek treatment?

 

If you are thinking about seeking counseling, then it's the right time. These thoughts often come from a recognition of 'where I am, is not where I want to be.' This in turn, creates feelings of dissatisfaction in one or more areas of a person's life. Unfortunately, all too often people wait until the problems have grown into something nearly unbearable before they seek help.

 

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

 

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process.  Everyone who comes to see me has some expertise and I also have expertise - we come together in order to 'build a better mouse trap' per say.  Because of this belief, I seek to understand along with my clients their goals, underlying motivations, strengths, and the stumbling blocks that they face.  It is through this process of self discovery that people are able to overcome immense obstacles.

 

What relationship exists between mental health and addiction? How do you approach dual diagnosis in your practice?

 

There is a definite relationship between mental health and addiction symptoms: one may mimic the other, or exacerbate the other, or even create the other.  And, while an overlap in warning sign identification and relapse prevention exists in both mental health and addiction, there are different strategies that need to be employed for each.  As such, I believe it is imperative that people seek treatment from someone who has extensive training the specific areas needing assistance.

When should one seek treatment?

 
Reaching out for help is often difficult and at time’s people can feel they are at a point in life where there is nowhere else to turn. When life seems to be spiralling out of control and one aspires to regain control of their life and re-establish the balance they strive for. If someone is considering counseling, chances are there is readiness for a change. If someone is feeling depressed, anxious, confused, stuck, and doubtful or self critical, it's time to find what can work better so that they can feel happier and free of debilitating symptoms. "You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step" (Martin Luther King, Jr.).

 

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

 
The foundation of my approach is the belief that thoughts and feelings create reactive behaviors that play a primary role in the repeated difficulties that individual’s experience. Coupled with this belief is the heart of my therapy which is to listen, understand and provide support in a genuinely honest, warm, and compassionate way. This unique balance helps to develop a person’s insight into their life situation, increase motivation toward change, and empower an inner sense of self. In other words, getting back on track! Getting back on track, is where I will collaborate with them to develop an individualized plan for life changes which will include a wide array of problem-solving strategies and skill building techniques. Every client will be encouraged and expected to be directly involved in each phase of their counseling experience. It is not just about helping people, but more about getting results and not being afraid to dig deep and ask the questions that need to be answered. I value the relationship, connection and rapport I build with my clients and believe that trust is a crucial element of that relationship. Whether this will be their first time in counseling or are returning and looking for a new therapist, it is vital to the effectiveness of their therapy that they feel connected, safe and comfortable exploring even the most deeply felt sources of pain or conflict. I can help them move forward in their life to feel more alive, vital and more deeply connected to themselves, others and the world around them. I welcome the opportunity to help them meet their goals and support them in realizing improved mood, enhanced coping skills, clearer communication and more satisfying relationships. It is an amazing and rewarding experience to witness when someone gains skills and resilience that they can draw upon when facing difficulties in life now and in the future. It is my commitment to every client to work together to help them identify their personal strengths, integrate those strengths to enhance their process of transformation and self-discovery and help teach them the skills for lifelong success.

 

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

 
The relationship between mental health and substance abuse/behavioral addiction is intertwined; fueling each other’s behaviors and symptoms. I have been working with co-occurring disorders with teens and adults for over 15 years and have extensive experience with moving them through the recovery process. I conduct an assessment at the time of intake addressing all areas of functioning and make the appropriate referrals for mental health counseling and community services that can conduct an official diagnostic chemical dependency assessment. I strongly encourage the client to follow the determined recommendation for their mental health therapy and the outcome recommendations for chemical dependency treatment. I then work closely together with the agency and the client to ensure the most successful outcome of recovery.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?  

 

Substance abuse is one example of looking outside of one's self to momentarily relieve suffering either physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually. My services offer a way to gain awareness of the source of this suffering, a way through and beyond it. Floatation therapy offers a way to create greater inner presence through the practice of being in the moment where no suffering can exist.

We can intermix these outdoor sessions with traditional office meetings. I have worked with all types of women through all junctions of life for over 8 years.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

I believe that substance abuse stems from the deep desire to numb oneself. There are many different reasons and realities that someone my want to escape life and also, many different ways to numb (drugs, alcohol, sex, food, etc.) If the individual doesn't take the necessary steps to face what is causing their desire to escape, the need to numb overtakes. Through psychotherapy, I am able to help the individual understand their numbing behavior and where it is stemming, allowing for them to create a new opening towards health and take the steps necessary to get there.
