What Are My Options for Addiction Treatment?

There are many different ways to treat substance abuse disorder. By choosing the optimal program for your circumstances, you can provide yourself with the best possible chance at a successful, long-term recovery. We have outlined some of the most common programs available below:

  • Many people begin their recovery process with a medical detox. Detoxification is known to produce uncomfortable and even potentially life-threatening side effects. By undergoing the detox process in a comfortable and secure treatment facility, you will have the support of trained professionals at your disposal who can help ensure a safe and successful detox experience.
  • Partial hospitalization programs offer the patient the structure and routine of inpatient care programs while allowing them the flexibility and independence to live in their own home.
  • Outpatient rehab is another extremely flexible option for those seeking treatment. Outpatient rehab is less intensive than partial hospitalization programs and focuses on providing different forms of therapy, including individual, group, and family therapy.
  • Sober living aftercare is an extremely valuable option for those who have difficulty avoiding substances or triggers within their own home. Sober living aftercare provides the recovering patient with a safe and secure home to build positive habits in while surrounded by other people in recovery.

The best way to determine the most effective strategy for drug rehab is through the intake assessment. The intake assessment reviews the substances that the patient is using, their use history, why they are seeking treatment, as well as a medical evaluation. For patients who enter the assessment currently under the influence, they will likely begin treatment in medical detox.

What Types of Therapy Are Used in Treatment?

Therapy is an important part of the treatment process. Addiction can alter a person’s thoughts and behaviors, making them prioritize substances over all else. Counseling and recovery services can be used to revert this effect, helping the patient to refocus their priorities and build positive habits and thought processes. There are a number of different types of cognitive therapy available to patients today:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy is used to help identify and change negative thoughts that help propel substance abuse and replace them with positive and more productive thought processes.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy helps improve a patient’s ability to envision and pursue goals and develop coping skills. This is effective in the treatment of patients with suicidal tendencies or borderline personality disorder.
  • The matrix model is often used to help with addictions to stimulants and combines multiple forms of therapy, including 12 step meetings, family therapy, and more to help ensure long-term sobriety.
  • Motivational interviewing is utilized to help a patient stay motivated and resolved in their goal of sobriety.
  • Family therapy is used to help a family unit overcome any lingering issues or resentment to reduce strain and improve the family dynamic.
  • Psychoeducation is all about educating the patient on substance use disorders and empowering them in their recovery process.
