What are Substance Abuse Treatment Programmes?
A comprehensive alcohol and drug rehabilitation program provides patients with comprehensive substance abuse treatment. It includes individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy and support groups as well as individualized treatment plans. These interventions can help patients develop coping skills, communicate better with their families, learn sober social skills and avoid triggers.
Substance abuse disorders can be complicated. There are no two people exactly alike, which is why addiction rehabilitation (rehab programs) provides a comprehensive, individualized, holistic treatment approach.
One person might need detoxification that is medically managed and then residential treatment. A different person might not require detox, and may be eligible for intensive outpatient care.
Multidisciplinary approaches can help ensure that programs include a wide range of addiction treatment options to promote recovery. Most programs address the individual's psychological and physical needs. They also include psychoeducation, relapse prevention skill training, support groups, family therapy, education, and individual counseling.
Research-based best practices tends to combine the theoretical and biopsychosocial perspectives on addictive disorders. This includes providing support counseling, encouraging client readiness to change and teaching coping-skill skills.
According to the Mayo Clinic:
- Inability to control your drinking.
- Alcohol use can cause problems with friends and family.
- Private drinking
- Alcohol can cause blackouts.
- Rituals that are based on alcohol use.
These signs may not be present in everyone who is suffering from alcoholism, but you might see them in someone you know. Drug addiction signs may look similar to alcohol abuse. Someone addicted to an illicit or prescribed substance can't control their use, just like someone who struggles with alcoholism.
Inpatient vs. Outpatient Programs
When choosing a rehab program for drug or alcohol addiction, the first thing you should do is decide between an inpatient and outpatient clinic. You should consult with professionals to learn as much as you can about the best type of program for your needs.
Outpatient rehab might be an option for those who don't want time taken away from their work, school, and home obligations.
