Man in Counseling Getting Addiction HelpTherapists and other medical professionals classify addiction a disease. As such, it requires specialized care. You wouldn’t go to an airplane mechanic to discuss the finer points of a hard shift problem with a Stingray Corvette. Similarly, you shouldn’t see just anybody for addiction help.

What Makes Choosing the Right Rehab Facility so Important?

When you consider that drug dependence combines to affects brain functioning and in turn physical behavior, expert addiction help is a necessity. Since people struggling with substance abuse are different from one another, a one-size-fits-all approach generally doesn’t work. For instance, different drugs call for different interventions. Helping those struggling with an opioid addiction is different from treating someone with alcohol dependence problems.

Characteristics of High-Quality Addiction Help

At Serenity Lodge, we recognize that withdrawal symptoms can be hard and even unhealthy to manage alone. We have a detox program to handle medically supervised physical withdrawal symptoms. Therapists realize that detox alone is insufficient to treat drug abuse (this is one of the reasons having our own detox program on site is helpful) because the rehab needs to follow right on the heels of the detoxification with a comprehensive treatment program. The process should include:

  • A drug-specific intervention: During the rehab portion of the recovery, people dealing with substance issues need help related to their drug of choice. For example, someone overcoming a heroin addiction will have different needs than someone grappling with legally prescribed painkillers.
  • Meeting the needs of Guests: A holistic recovery approach ensures that those seeking treatment participate in a program that considers the whole person. Exercise, relaxation, meditation, and socializing must be part of the program.
  • Multidisciplinary therapy approaches: Going beyond standardized rehab protocol is vital. Effective treatment methods address a person’s needs as well as drug abuse issues. Examples include dual diagnosis treatments, 12-step programs, and family counseling as needed.
