When you come to Recovery Guild you’re starting out on a path to rebuilding your life by helping to create your own drug treatment program. Each individual is different. Each case of addiction is also different and require different approaches. What works for someone else may not work for you. The cookie cutter approach simply doesn’t work in a drug addiction treatment program.
Over time the treatment of addiction has become much more sophisticated and involved than it ever was. As we’ve learned more about how addiction occurs and how it impacts the brain and the body, as well as the psyche, more modalities of therapy have been developed, more medical approaches have been introduced.
Treatment today looks very different than it did even 20 years ago. But what’s become most important is that the addicted person play a central role in developing a program that will work for him or her.
Individualized Drug Addiction Treatment Programs
For example, addiction today is often accompanied by another, or co-occurring, disorder. This could be a psychological or physical disorder. Often times it is some form of trauma. This co-occurring disorder must also be addressed in the drug addiction treatment program for the program to be effective and for the individual to attain success at overcoming his, or her, addiction.
Today, drug addiction is harsher than ever and has exploded across the country and the front pages of newspapers everywhere as an epidemic. The old standard, or model, of a 12-step method of recovery simply isn’t enough. Frankly, it never was, it was just all there was at one time. The 12-steps were never intended to be treatment, they aren’t. They are a support system for those trying to get and remain sober.
Treatment is a clinical program and, today, doctors and licensed therapists bring the firepower needed to beat this curse.
Program for Drug Treatment Only Work if You Do
