Addiction is a multifaceted disease that can have a wide impact on a person’s daily life. According to 2017 estimates, 20.7 million Americans required treatment for substance use disorders. However, only 2.5 million were able to receive specialized substance use treatment.
Addiction treatment requires individual attention to address the underlying causes as well as the symptoms. This includes their ability socialize, their physical, mental, and legal health. Effective treatment for addiction can be achieved with many different types of therapy.
Addiction treatment is a combination group and individual therapy sessions. These sessions are designed to teach people in recovery how to manage their addiction and navigate the world without using drugs or alcohol. The general approach to behavioral therapy has been modified into many different effective methods. These include:
The individual receiving treatment and their engagement level, the therapist, other members of the treatment team and the type and effectiveness of the therapy will all affect how effective behavioral therapy is in addiction treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy sessions are known to help patients “stick” after they have completed treatment. CBT has a positive and lasting effect on substance abuse patients.
The effectiveness of contingency management in the treatment of a variety substances use disorders has also been demonstrated. By rewarding patients with cash or vouchers, they can encourage abstinence, and other positive behavior, which may lead to recovery.
Incentive-based therapy has been shown to increase treatment retention in one clinical trial.
Prescriptions play an important part of many addiction treatment programs. They can be combined with counseling or behavioral therapies to aid in recovery. You may use a variety of medications to manage withdrawal from opioids or benzodiazepines.
To help people with an opioid addiction, opioid antagonist medications such as buprenorphine or methadone can be used. You can use medications such as acamprosate or disulfiram to reduce your drinking.
For symptomatic support during withdrawal or treatment, and to treat any co-occurring medical or mental health issues, you may be prescribed additional medication off-label.
Unsure about the cost of rehab or treatment? Ask your insurance provider if they will cover the cost of treatment and any medications.
There are other types of therapies which can be used to supplement the more traditional treatment options. Although these methods are not a substitute for substance abuse treatment programs, they can promote recovery through stress management. The following are some complementary therapies:
Unfortunately, there is no cure currently for substance use disorders. Addiction is a chronic condition that can recur, much like other chronic diseases. Like other chronic diseases, drug addiction can be treated in a variety of ways. The treatment of substance abuse disorders can help people regain control over their lives, and prevent the harmful effects that drugs and alcohol have on their brains.
Every person’s addiction is different. Therefore, it is crucial that each individual receives the right treatment. One person’s experience with something doesn’t mean it will work for all. Treatment plans should change as patients’ needs change.
