Overcoming Drug Addiction

Developing a drug addiction can happen to anyone – addiction does not discriminate, and it is not a matter of weak moral standing, a lack of willpower or a flawed character. The very first step to overcoming drug addiction is understanding what this insidious and complex disease entails. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5) considers drug addiction to be a chronic and relapsing brain disease, one that presents a range of symptoms that can be effectively treated and eliminated, but never fully cured. If you or someone you love has been struggling with a drug addiction of any severity, effective treatment options are readily available. The most effective methods of treatment vary on a person-to-person basis, but very multi-phased program of clinical care typically includes the following:

  • Drug withdrawal in a medical detoxification facility
  • Residential drug rehab (inpatient treatment)
  • Intensive therapeutic care
  • Medication Assisted Treatment (whenever necessary)
  • A continuation of clinical care in an intensive outpatient or outpatient program
  • Ongoing involvement in a mutual-aid group like Alcoholics Anonymous
  • Sober living housing

If you or your loved one is ready to begin on the road to recovery, the most important step is choosing a drug rehab that meets all of your personal needs and clinical requirements. Choosing a drug rehab can be an intensive process – however, things will run much more smoothly if you know exactly what to look for.

Choosing a Drug Rehab

When choosing a drug rehab, it is crucial that you weigh your options and find an inpatient treatment center that offers the clinical and therapeutic services you are looking for. According to the American Psychiatric Association, there are 13 principles of effective drug addiction treatment that were developed after decades of intensive scientific research. These principles are as follows:

  • Addiction is a complicated disease – one that affects cognitive function and behavior. Despite its complexity, it can be effectively treated.
  • No one single treatment method will be equally effective for everyone.
  • In order for recovery to be achieved, addiction treatment must be readily available and accessible.
  • In order for treatment to be effective, all the needs of the individual must be addressed. Addressing the drug addiction alone will not be effective long-term.
  • It is imperative that the individual remains in treatment for an extended period of time and completes all recommended stages of clinical care.
  • In order for treatment to be effective, behavioral therapy (individual and group therapy) must be available.
  • Medication Assisted Treatment can be extremely beneficial in some cases.
  • Treatment plans must be continuously assessed and modified accordingly.
  • Because many individuals who struggle with drug abuse have underlying mental health disorders, dual diagnosis treatment must be available.
  • Medical drug detox is only the first stage of every treatment program, and it is never sufficient as a stand-alone treatment option.
  • Addiction treatment does not need to be voluntary in order to be effective.
  • Individuals must be closely monitored during every stage of the treatment process to ensure that they are staying on the right track.
  • Effective treatment programs should include risk-reduction counseling, addiction education and relapse prevention.

At Immersion Recovery Center we have developed a drug rehab program that touches on every single one of these principles in depth. We offer a range of effective treatment services, all geared towards paving the road of lifelong sobriety.
