Available Treatment Programs 

There are several conventional and experimental strategies for treating substance abuse. In fact, scientists, psychologists and mental-health care experts generally agree on one overarching principle to achieve effective treatment — no one rehabilitation method will work the same for everyone.  

Effective treatment programs use specific plans that meet the unique requirements of every patient. It’s important to realize that even people who use the same drug don’t always respond to certain kinds of treatments. Legal, medical, psychological, work and social circumstances need to be considered when creating treatment plans for each patient.  

An effective treatment plan starts with close observation and examination of the patient. And the plan should be regularly adjusted and modified to respond to the patient’s changing needs. Many sorts of effective therapies are available and mental health care specialists generally prescribe a combination of: 

group and/or individual therapy 

psychotherapy 

medical services 

family counseling 

parenting instruction 

vocational instruction 

behavioral therapies 

Depending on the individual need, various levels of rehab are available. For instance, an individual who has been sober for many years, but experiences a relapse, will receive a much different degree of treatment than a person who has been actively using for many years. 

Inpatient treatment offers both detox and rehab services in one location — most often at a hospital or medical clinic. Inpatient treatment is becoming less common and many of these facilities are starting to focus only on medically supervised detoxification. After detox, patients are encouraged to enter a treatment program at a rehab facility. 

Outpatient treatment is available to those who would prefer to continue to live at home while receiving rehab. They will commute daily to participate in rehab activities at a medical clinic, counselor’s office, neighborhood health clinic or at residential programs that offer outpatient services. 

Residential treatment mixes the best parts of inpatient and outpatient programs. Patients live in homey, upscale residences and are transported to the facility for treatment and daily support meetings. Through this method, when patients eventually leave treatment, they’re ready to withstand the anxieties and temptations of life. 

The Importance of Talking 

Substance dependency is deceptive and makes addicted individuals think they have no options. However, with the help of professionals and the encouragement of loved ones and family, recovery is possible. 

Meeting with a professional therapist one-on-one can help you explore what may have led to your addiction. Arming yourself with this knowledge will allow you to identify and avoid people and situations that once steered you toward using drugs and alcohol. 

Group therapy is also very helpful. Relearning how to communicate within a group can help you after you complete your treatment. Most people with a substance abuse disorder have a difficult time communicating with friends and family. Therefore, attending group therapy sessions will equip you with socializing skills that may have been lost when your drug and alcohol addiction took over your life. 

Experts offer the tools to make positive and life-altering changes by helping patients get control over their substance use disorder. Some patients may not require detox assistance upon arriving, but everyone has access to: 

Customized addiction treatment programs 

Group and individual therapy sessions 

Wholesome events and physical activities 

Comfortable, inviting living accommodations 

24-hour care and supervision 

After approximately 90 days of continued sobriety, you will move into the maintenance stage of your recovery. The focus of this stage is to continue your sobriety while preparing to transition back into your regular life. Here you will learn how to cope with cravings in the real world. You will also continue counseling to determine how to best integrate yourself back into your usual routine. This will include best strategies for family life, relationships, work life and social settings. 

While the length of this stage varies from person-to-person, those recovering from a substance abuse disorder normally fall into this stage for up to five years. Once this stage is over, the individual will notice that his cravings have almost entirely subsided. They will also begin to feel more confident and happier in their sober lifestyle decision.
