Quality Addictions Treatment: Part Two

A person addicted to alcohol or other drugs has a very specific need to receive quality addictions treatment that will provide a comprehensive assessment of the current situation, including potential causes and conditions that may inhibit;

a) Meaningful interaction with the addictions treatment programme, its staff, particularly their focal addictions counsellor and also the other patients on the unit.

b)   A good prognosis. Quality addictions treatment programmes help to address any legal, emotional, mental, vocational and spiritual problems; and develop an all-inclusive treatment plan that can be amended to suit the patients needs as their time in rehab progresses.

A good way to find quality addictions treatment that is capable of addressing the wide-ranging consequences of active addiction is to contact a licensed and accredited addictions counsellor or similar professional with experience in this field.

Quality Addictions Treatment is Holistic

Society has progressed in many ways moving towards a more efficient way of doing things and hopefully an improvement in the quality of life for all. Addictions rehabilitation is no exception. Research into addictions and subsequent advances in therapy have improved overall clinical care and outcomes, especially in the last ten to fifteen years. Excellent drug rehab at value-for-money prices is a reality for many addicted people bringing much relief to the patients and to their loved ones.

I don’t believe the proportion of addicted people per capita has risen much more than it’s ever been, just that our communication is so effective we get to hear about so many more people struggling to find quality addictions treatment and the ensuing damages to individuals, families and society at large.

Quality addictions treatment is a necessary part of society today and with so many options available in the marketplace it can be quite a challenge to find the most suitable drug or alcohol rehabilitation centre for each person who needs it, particularly as the searching for help is usually done in a time of addictions induced crisis. Please get help from an accredited professional when seeking quality addictions treatment for rehab from alcohol or other drugs.

Finding an effective rehab may also be a scary process as so many people do not understand the dynamics of addiction and recovery. Family finds it difficult to understand why the one they love has become addicted in the first place, why their behaviour has become so extreme and most importantly why they just can’t stop!

No one starts using drugs with the express purpose of becoming addicted and needing to be manipulative and deceptive to find ways of getting and using more drugs and alcohol. Family & friends struggle to understand these awful traits in someone who may have been honest and sincere before becoming addicted.

Quality addictions treatment needs to be all-inclusive in nature, treating not only the drug or alcohol abuse but addressing the patients’ holistic needs. The process of addiction is one that distorts the addicted person’s thinking as well as disrupts the chemical balances in their body. Often people who become addicted will not have proper eating or sleeping habits. Burning the candle at both ends for long enough will leave the addicted person’s body & mind depleted and this influences their mood and behaviour. Quality addictions treatment needs to redress these factors.

Any quality addictions treatment programme will address the whole person and ensure that any co-habiting mental issues are adequately treated. One of the first things that will take place is a full medical assessment to determine detoxification requirements but also to assess any potential damage that needs to be rectified.
