The Treatment Process

Each treatment process is different.  Every facility helps someone fighting addiction plan out the proper treatment plan which suits individual needs.  Some people with addiction face more difficult times than others. Harder drugs and alcohol have a different reaction to the body.  Medication, therapy, and length time attending treatment are determined by the care team and the individual.

Detox

Removing toxins from the body is called detoxification, or detox.  For a person to stop using, the body has to be cleansed of substances.  Substance abuse is caused by the mind and body becoming dependent on the toxins.  The euphoric feeling continues to become harder to achieve due to tolerance. Higher doses create more cravings and withdrawal symptoms.  The cycle persists until detox is complete, and even then the cravings and thoughts of using could continue through the person’s lifetime.  Detox is only the beginning of treatment. Cleansing the body is not a cure.

Individual Counseling

Drugs and alcohol alter the way someone thinks and feels.  The changes made to the brain affects mood and behavior. Habits of using substances have a great hold on the individual.  Routine and self-care become almost obsolete. Taking back control of one’s life requires time and concentration. Trying to accomplish difficult changes without professional help can be complicated and unsuccessful.  Therapists can offer various treatments to help the person in recovery work through past experiences, overwhelming emotions, and broken relationships. One on one therapy can continue as long as the individual feels the need for meetings.  

Group Therapy

Working with others who understand what the person in recovery has gone through will build up recovery.  Taking advice from people with similar backgrounds encourages the individual to keep moving forward. After difficult relationships are hard to mend, interaction with peers in group therapy teaches the person in recovery how to build new and healthy friendships.

Other Therapies

The objective of treatment is to produce tools and guidelines to live a happy and healthy lifestyle.  In therapy, the person in recovery can learn how to sustain abstinence and maintain a positive day to day lifestyle.  Coping skills are viewed as therapeutic activities which enhance the individual’s way of living. Adventure therapy is described as creating a bond with nature or a coping skill of outdoor experiences.  Art therapy can strengthen creativity and skill. Art therapy also is used as a coping skill for relaxation and concentration. The care team and the individual in treatment can decide which therapies will work best for a fast recovery.
