Addiction Is Treatable
Although addiction is treatable, the solution is not simple. As addiction to drugs or alcohol is a chronic disease, individuals cannot simply quit using drugs or alcohol for a couple of days and be cured. A majority of patients need long-term care or repeated care in order to stop using completely and recover their lives.
You will be glad to know that many options have been effective in treating drug and alcohol addiction, such as the following:
- Behavioral counseling
- Medical applications and devices used to treat various withdrawal symptoms or deliver high-quality skills training
- Assessment and treatment of co-occurring disorders, like depression and anxiety
- Long-term care and follow-up to prevent the risk of relapse
Types of Addiction Treatment
Alcohol or drug detox can be one element of a comprehensive treatment program, or it can also be a standalone service provided through clinics, hospitals, or rehab facilities. For most individuals who are actively using alcohol or drugs, detox is a necessary part of treatment. Detoxification is a professionally monitored period of cessation from alcohol or drug use until the harmful chemical substances are no longer in the patient’s body.
Outpatient care is ideal for people who cannot drop everything and move into a residential facility for an extended period. Outpatient treatment programs include many of the same kinds of services provided by residential centers. In many outpatient programs, group counseling and therapy can be major components.
Outpatient treatment programs allow the patient to resume (or continue) meeting the various demands of their life, such as school and work responsibilities, and spend quality time with friends and family while still making time for rehab and counseling.
Inpatient or residential addiction treatment usually involves medical detoxification, group counseling, individual counseling sessions, and family counseling services. Some programs can also offer exercise and nutrition advice, spiritual counseling, and other wellness-promoting activities. Note that the most effective inpatient rehab programs approach drug or alcohol addiction holistically. This means they address a client’s physical addiction to substances as well as the spiritual, social, and emotional factors that contribute to it.
