Whether you’re choosing addiction treatment programs for yourself or for a loved one, it’s an important decision to make. Choosing the ideal facility with a range of addiction treatment programs for your needs can make a significant impact on the recovery journey. Instead of simply picking the first program you find, it’s essential to consider all of your options and specific needs.

Choosing Addiction Treatment Programs with a Full Continuum of Care

When choosing addiction treatment programs, it’s crucial to know your needs. Do you need an option to remove you from your home so you can focus on your treatment? Are you unable to commit to leaving home? It’s important to understand the options you have for programs and how they relate to your specific needs before making a decision. For example, if you wish to stay at your facility, it’s important to choose a rehab that offers residential options. If you blindly choose a facility, you could experience ineffective treatment.

Before you make a decision on programs, consider what each option provides:

  • Medical detox– For certain substances, like alcohol, a medical detox program is an essential first step in recovery. This allows you to safely remove the substance from your system while being under the supervision of medical professionals.
  • Residential treatment program– A residential program allows you to remain at the facility for a period of time as you go through your treatment plan. During this time, your days are scheduled with numerous therapy sessions, activities, and meetings.
  • Partial hospitalization treatment program– A PHP can serve two purposes, depending on your needs. It can be a starting for addiction treatment for those with lesser addictions or who are unable to participate in a residential program. It can also be the next level of care for those who have completed a residential program.
  • Intensive outpatient treatment program– An IOP tends to serve the same two purposes as a PHP. It provides structured care but allows the client to return home at the end of their day.
  • Aftercare program– The road to recovery doesn’t end after treatment. An aftercare program helps to provide continued support to individuals once they complete their treatment plan. This ongoing support helps reduce the chances of relapse once they return to their homes.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

As you begin choosing addiction treatment programs, it’s also important to consider the need for a dual diagnosis treatment program. Quite often, individuals who struggle with addiction also struggle with an underlying mental health disorder. While in some cases the disorder is known and just needs treatment, other cases involve the disorder going undiagnosed. In either scenario, both disorders require the appropriate attention for treatment. A dual diagnosis treatment program provides attention to both issues and treats both simultaneously.

Family Support

Another aspect of treatment to consider when choosing addiction treatment programs is the level of family support for addiction is available. A family therapy program is crucial for those looking to repair relationships with their loved ones. Addiction touches the lives of not just the person struggling, but their loved ones as well. A family program helps to encourage and facilitate respectful and effective communication while helping loved ones forgive and heal from addiction.
