WHAT MAKES ADDICTION TREATMENT EFFECTIVE?
- August 10, 2018
For someone suffering from addiction, it can be difficult to think about trying to quit drinking or using drugs. The body becomes dependent on many substances, and it can be daunting to think about trying to kick a severe addiction. However, there is no one with an addiction severe enough to be unaffected by a successful treatment program.
When you are looking at the different types of treatment that are available, it is important to keep in mind that not a single method of treatment will work perfectly for every person. Everyone experiences addiction differently. An effective treatment program will address all of the needs of a person. Their medical problems, psychological problems, legal problems, and all other issues in their life must be addressed throughout their treatment if they are going to succeed in recovery.
The duration of a treatment program is also an important measure of whether or not treatment will be effective. The necessary amount of time that someone needs to stay in treatment will depend on the severity of their addiction. However, it is generally accepted that three months is long enough for people to enter into recovery successfully. Even longer programs will be even more successful in treating addiction.
There are several phases that one will experience when going through a successful treatment program. First, they must be evaluated to tailor the treatment program to their specific needs. Next, the person must go through supervised detoxification, enduring the symptoms of withdrawal safely under the watchful eye of a medical professional. Then the active treatment will begin. This is when people will start going through individual or group therapy, receiving medication to help with their addiction, receive medication to help with any psychiatric illnesses, and join a 12-step program. There may be other methods used to fight addiction. After their active treatment is complete, a person will have to stay in recovery and avoid relapse. This can involve 12-step programs and various treatments on an outpatient basis.
