The goal of drug and alcohol rehab is to help addicted individuals stop drug use and maintain sobriety while also learning the skills needed to cope with family, workplace and societal interaction. It’s crucial that the individual find a rehab program that is tailored to their specific needs, which offer the necessary treatment therapies to help the client achieve a successful life long recovery. Choosing the right rehab isn’t difficult if you know what you are looking for, and know what to ask, as drug abuse treatment is not a “one size fits all” endeavor.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) treatment outcomes (success or failure in the individual’s recovery) depends on the following:
- extent and nature of the person’s problems;
- appropriateness of treatment;
- availability of additional services; and
- quality of interaction between the person and his or her treatment providers.
- Family and friends also play important roles in the treatment process, as support through compassion and motivation often elevates the progress of the client’s drug recovery.
Below is a brief guide by NIDA containing five questions to ask when searching for a treatment program:
- Does the program use treatments backed by scientific evidence?
- Does the program tailor treatment to the needs of each patient?
- Does the program adapt treatment as the patient’s needs change?
- Is the duration of treatment sufficient?
- How do 12-step or similar recovery programs fit into drug addiction treatment?
