Committing to treatment for substance abuse is an opportunity for you to recover from a dependence on drugs or alcohol, which is why having the right treatment plan is such a critical part of any recovery. The reason generic treatment plans may not be as effective as hoped is that addiction looks different for everyone.
For some, substance abuse has been normal behavior for years they learned from those around them. Others may have turned to drugs or alcohol during difficult times as a form of self-medicating against stress or symptoms of another disorder. These differences, along with several others, are why having an individualized treatment plan can be the difference that lets you achieve long-term sobriety.
The Foundation of a Substance Abuse Treatment Plan
The specific treatments and support groups you’ll experience during an individualized plan will vary, but there are certain steps that start off every journey on the right foot.
Medical detoxification is often the first step as it provides you with the support needed to make withdrawal symptoms less uncomfortable. You’ll also go through discussions of what your goals are for treatment and for your new sober lifestyle. From there, you can expect to engage in some, or even all, of the following aspects of treatment:
- Individual and group counseling
- Therapeutic community involvement
- Family therapy
- Life and job skill coaching
- Behavioral therapy
How you spend your time in treatment is up to you. The best treatment plans and support teams will be able to adjust and make room for new goals you may want to achieve. When the focus is on equipping you with everything you need to avoid substance abuse in the future, finding long-term success becomes much easier.
You’ll Need the Right Rehab
In order to make sure your substance abuse treatment plan is properly supported, America’s Rehab Campus has a team that brings a wide range of experiences, backgrounds, and skills with them. Treating substance abuse and addiction requires intimate knowledge of the development of, and the recovery from, addiction. Combined with our resort-style campus and holistic treatment plans, the ARC team is here to make sure you’re getting the most out of rehab.
We’ll work with you to help you balance your existing responsibilities and treatment. If you’re able to commit to living on-campus during treatment, inpatient rehab is the most effective form of substance abuse treatment as you spend all of your time in a safe and empowering environment. Outpatient rehab can be ideal for less severe situations as long as you’re living somewhere supportive and free of drugs and alcohol during treatment.
At the end of the day, the best substance abuse treatment plan for you is one that can adapt to your unique recovery needs. To learn more about our custom treatment plans, contact the ARC team today.
