WHAT MAKES OUR DRUG ADDICTION TREATMENT PLANS SUCCESSFUL?
Our exclusive curriculum for relapse prevention is the most successful approach to substance abuse treatment and recovery. We employ a multidisciplinary treatment program including modalities developed by top experts in the field of drug and alcohol addiction treatment.
This collaborative process uses elements of 12 step programs. It’s also one of the reasons why leading outpatient drug abuse and addiction specialists refer their patients who need more intensive treatment, or who have multiple relapses. Many hospitals also commonly suggest SSRC us for clients who need to address the root causes of their addiction following an overdose or inpatient detox.
Planning for an addict or alcoholic treatment needs begins early on in our admissions process. We ask the client and their family to provide information about alcohol or drug addiction symptoms, challenges in work or school, and issues with friends or family. We also request permission to communicate with previous alcohol and drug treatment providers to gather information about medical history, psychiatric history, past substance abuse treatment progress, and stumbling blocks to achieving or maintaining recovery from dependence on drugs or alcohol.
Upon admission, clients undergo a comprehensive medical and psychiatric assessment, then assigned a treatment team with several key members whom she will meet individually after she settles in:
- Primary therapist
- Family therapist
- Psychiatrist (MD)
- Internal medicine physician (MD)
- Addiction specialist
- Registered dietitian (RD)
- Eating disorder specialist, when indicated
Each provides an assessment and the findings are integrated and reviewed with our entire clinical staff. As a result, our full knowledge about successful drug abuse and addiction treatment is integrated into each client’s treatment plan.
Taking Ownership of Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment
We believe it is critical for each client to take ownership of treatment and recovery from the outset. Once a treatment plan is formulated, our team’s recommendations are shared with the client.
This cooperative approach gives the client input into treatment goals and allows them to choose several elective elements of our program. Client’s will sign off on their treatment objectives and the progression of her treatment plan for drug addiction or alcoholism, and any co-occurring disorders.
Looking Forward to Recovery
For most clients, the first 3 steps are introduced during the initial weeks of drug rehab.
