Programs for a Successful Recovery from Drug Addiction
Those who are looking for safe and successful ways to recover from drug addiction have a choice between several programs. There are different approaches available based on the client’s needs and at the same time, how severe the person’s addiction is. Whether you are male or female, you can opt to go through any of the treatment services which are part of a full spectrum of ways to support those wanting to be drug-free.
The individualized care can also help the client best because of the tailor-fit approach. This is based on several factors, including the degree of addiction, an existing mental health issue and the different needs of the client.
Here are the various types of drug addiction programs available:
Day/Night with or without Community Housing
This program allows the client to slowly gain access back to the real world and will no longer be monitored round-the-clock. However, the treatment is still structured during the week. They are still required to attend various group meetings and therapy sessions for around 6 hours a day, 5 days a week.
Moreover, they participate in more enjoyable activities and other therapies that follow a more experiential approach. The goal of this program is for the clients to move away from 24/7 supervision and to start having real-life interaction with sober individuals in the community.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
When a client completes a long term program, they move to the IOP level of care. IOP offers a sense of personal freedom, yet a good amount of personal accountability. IOP classes are attended 3 or 5 days a week, with a.m. or p.m. sessions offered, for 3 hours of treatment each day. IOP level of care is designed to facilitate our client’s integration back into everyday society; we encourage part-time employment with full-time recovery.
The focus of this approach is to allow the client to ease back into the community while at the same time, planning for aftercare programs and making sure they are ready for what comes next in their recovery.
How to Design the Best Approach
Only an individualized care and treatment can successfully end drug addiction. Because every person’s drug usage and body are different, there can be no one standard approach.
Once an individual goes in for treatment, they will be going through several types of assessment procedures that will shape their program. First of all, symptoms and other conditions will be discussed, and this will identify which approach is best.
The next step involves going through a medical and psychological screening which may help identify any medications needed to address withdrawal symptoms. Our licensed medical doctor will then issue the necessary prescriptions.
