Many studies show that there are several different addiction treatment programs, for someone seeking treatment has the option to find one that will fit them and allow them to be successful.  The treatment industry is continuing to evolve and grow, so there are many options for someone seeking a holistic approach, one with religious content and they do not fit the traditional programs or classifications.


The first stage of any recovery program should start with detoxification, that needs to be medically managed withdrawal and it can give someone a successful start to recovery.  Detoxification, this is where the body is beginning to function without the drug and removal of the drug from the body should be medically supervised. An individual can have some dangerous physiological effects for stopping drug use.  The detoxification is just part of the recovery process, psychological, social and behavioral matters that cause addiction need to be dealt with as well. Detoxification is the initial assessment that will setup addicts for a successful recovery.


Long-Term Residential Treatment

From detoxification, an addict can head into long-term residential treatment, providing that they can take time off work, have the financial means or it can be covered by insurance.  This type of care is 24 hours a day, generally in a non-hospital environment. The most common residential treatment model is the therapeutic community, where a patient can stay from 6 to 12 months.  The TC program, resocializes the patient, using the whole community to help them reconnect with the outside world. When an addict is deep into their drug of choice, they cut themselves from the outside world.and their community has so many resources to help them in their day to day life.  The patient needs to learn personal accountability and be responsible to hold socially productive life. Treatment is extremely structured, personal, confrontational, where you examine selfish behavior, mental stability, destructive activities and look to recalibrate your mind, body, and soul so you head in a positive direction.  You got into this situation because you are replacing your addiction for what you do not have and you need to identify what that is an confront it head-on. This will help them move forward and gain max potential from their recovery.


Short-Term Residential Treatment

This is an intense residential program that needs to give them as many tools and resources so they can be successful outside of the facility in a short amount of time.  The program was designed to treat those mainly addicted to alcohol and it has a modified 12-step approach. The modified 12 step aspect allows patients to reconnect with AA or SMART recovery and feel like they can step right into a program with a base of what they need.  The stay can range from 3 to 6-week hospital-based program followed by an extended IOP program as well as self-help groups.  


Outpatient Treatment Programs  

The outpatient treatment can have various types of programs or services offered.  The cost of this is less than residential and is more accommodating for patients that need to continue working and have strong support at home.  Some outpatient models can have strong day programs that are comparable to residential programs effectiveness and it always depends on the various needs of each patient.  The IOP programs can have a schedule where the patient has a full day of relapse prevention, meditation, anger management, 12 step program and drug/alcohol education. No matter what is provided for the patient, they need to invest in the program and learn all the tools they can for use in the real world.
