Barbiturates are a type of depressant medication that are generally used to treat anxiety and sometimes seizure disorders or insomnia. When ingested, they produce feelings of calm, relaxation, and pleasure. When barbiturates are used recreationally, these pleasurable and relaxing feelings are intensified and can be so strong as to become addictive. Barbiturates have become less common over the last few decades, partially as a result of their addictive potential, as physicians have transitioned to prescribing other types of medications, such as benzodiazepines. However, barbiturates are still prescribed, and many individuals still struggle with barbiturate use disorders.

Barbiturate use disorder is a serious and life-threatening condition, but at Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab, we have decades of experience helping individuals overcome addictions to these powerful drugs. With the help of our caring, experienced staff in our compassionate treatment programs, individuals who are struggling with an addiction to barbiturates can find the help they need to live the recovered lives they deserve.

How to Help a Loved One

Helping a loved one get treatment for barbiturate addiction

Discovering that a loved one is abusing barbiturates can be a painful and difficult experience. However, it is important to remember that there are many things you can do to help your loved one overcome this disorder. Consider the following:

  • Learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of barbiturate abuse. In addition, gain the ability to recognize the signs of intoxication and overdose so that you can plan for how to handle those situations.
  • Look into options for treatment, and find out what treatments have worked for other individuals. Make a short list of treatment centers that provide these types of care to share with your loved one at an appropriate time.
  • Try to stay in touch with your loved one. Talk with him or her, share your observations, and listen to his or her responses openly and nonjudgmentally. Emotions are likely to run high during these conversations, so try your best to ensure that they do not turn into arguments.
  • When your loved one is ready to seek treatment, help him or her transition into care. For example, you might consider offering to set up appointments with treatment center staff and making yourself available to accompany your loved one to those appointments as a show of support. Praise his or her courage, and do everything you can to remove obstacles that may be in his or her way.
  • During your loved one’s time in treatment, remain a constant and unmoving source of support.
  • Do not get so caught up in taking care of your loved one that you forget to take care of yourself. You will likely be of little help to your loved one if you are exhausted and burned out, so keep up with basic self-care: eat healthy, get enough sleep, and exercise regularly.

Why Consider Treatment

Why consider treatment for barbiturate addiction at Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab in Northern California

Although barbiturates have helped many individuals, these are powerful drugs and must be respected. Barbiturate abuse has been associated with a range of negative outcomes, including job loss, long-term unemployment, financial disruption, separation, divorce, loss of child custody, and social isolation. In addition, the abuse of these drugs can damage a person’s organs, cause cognitive difficulties, and even result in the individual’s death from suicide or overdose. Although these consequences are severe, they can be all but avoided if a person receives prompt, effective treatment at a high-quality substance abuse treatment center.

Trained, experienced, and dedicated staff members, many of whom have worked at our center for several years, go above and beyond to ensure that guests’ recovery journeys are both life-changing and meaningful. Upon completion of our streamlined admissions process, individualized treatment plans are created by these staff members so as to address and treat the concerns our guests come to us with. Within these plans, the following proven-effective and evidenced-based methods of care may be included as part of a man or woman’s experience at Duffy’s:

Medication management: If a guest is requiring medication in order to manage the symptoms of a mental health condition while working on recovering from an addiction to barbiturates, we, at Duffy’s, are pleased to be able to facilitate meetings with a psychiatrist on an as-needed basis. Our staff assists guests in providing them access to their medications, and the dosages administered are monitored closely so as to ensure the safety of all guests who require pharmaceutical interventions while in our care.

Individual therapy: Each man and woman who chooses to recover at Duffy’s is assigned a primary care counselor for the duration of his or her treatment. These staff members facilitate individual therapy sessions two times each week so that guests are able to process their feelings, emotions, and experiences in a private setting with a qualified professional. We believe that it is beneficial for those who are grappling with an addiction to barbiturates to take part in individual therapy, as this method of care allows them to openly discuss their experiences in a setting that is extremely conducive to both healing and recovering.

Group therapy: So as to provide guests with optimal support, Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab is proud to offer several group therapy opportunities to guests who are battling addictions to barbiturates and other substances. Peer-led group therapy sessions occur four days per week and are driven by the topics that are personal and relevant to our guests’ recovery journeys. Additionally, our staff conducts group therapy sessions once per day, which include a check-in and cover the following addiction- and recovery-related topics:

  • Mindfulness
  • Responsibility
  • Self-awareness
  • Relapse prevention
  • Acceptance
  • Powerless and unmanageability

Experiential therapy: Typically occurring during staff-led group therapy sessions, Duffy’s supplies various experiential therapy sessions during a guest’s time with us. These sessions enable men and women to reconnect with themselves, and allow them to experience healing on a profoundly deeper level. The following experiential therapies are those that a guest can participate in while working to overcome an addiction to barbiturates:

  • Trust-building exercises, including surrender falls
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
  • Meditation
  • Art therapy
  • Trust the Process
  • Music and recovery
  • Crossing the Line

Family therapy: Because Duffy’s is committed to helping both guests and their loved ones when a barbiturate addiction is affecting their lives, the programming we offer includes family therapy sessions. Occurring weekly, these sessions help those we treat and those closest to them heal from the pain addiction has caused and become a united front against further substance abuse. Additionally, we also offer educational groups on the weekends that are led by our staff and provide guests’ loved ones with the information and support they require at this stage in their love one’s recovery. Lastly, we afford each guest with the opportunity to request a private family session with his or her primary care counselor near the end of his or her time with us so as to prepare for what lies ahead after leaving Duffy’s.

Depending on the guest’s needs, we can customize a plan of treatment that befits what the individual is needing during his or her recovery journey. We work side-by-side with the men and women who come to Duffy’s, and we will do all that we can to ensure that each person entrusted into our care is receiving only the most appropriate methods of treatment. Because of this, the inclusion and frequency of the above interventions within a guest’s treatment plan will rely on where the individual is at in his or her recovery.

Nearing the end of a guest’s time at our center, our staff will collaborate with each person to determine the most appropriate follow-up services that will allow him or her to remain on the path of recovery for the long-term. Additionally, for those who receive care at Duffy’s for a minimum of 21 days, three months of continuing care services will be offered, which include therapy sessions with addiction specialists, drug screenings, and 12-Step process groups via Full Circle Recovery. We supply this offering as a means of upholding our commitment to helping those we treat achieve both their treatment goals and the sober lives that they are capable of living.
