What Types of Drug Treatment Are There?

What Types of Drug Treatment Are There?

There are many different types of treatment available for addiction and substance abuse.

Treatment programs fall into two main categories: inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment. Outpatient programs are part-time programs that you attend from home. They typically involve ten to twelve hours of sessions every week.

Inpatient programs are intensive residential programs where you stay at the treatment center for the duration of the treatment. Inpatient treatment tends to be more effective, especially for more severe cases of addiction. It offers a safe and supportive environment where you can focus on your recovery away from the distractions of everyday life.


Does My Loved One Need a Residential Program?

Does My Loved One Need a Residential Program?

Residential drug treatment is usually necessary for someone struggling with a severe alcohol or substance use disorder.

It offers a safe and controlled environment away from drugs and alcohol with 24-hour medical support.

SAMHSA found that almost half of people with substance use disorder have another mental illness. Inpatient care often provides treatment for co-occurring disorders and other underlying mental health conditions alongside a person’s addiction. Treating these co-occurring disorders is a vital part of long-term recovery and maintaining abstinence.

How Do I Determine Which Program Is Best for My Loved One?

How Do I Determine Which Program Is Best for My Loved One?

It is helpful to research different rehab programs to find the most suitable one for your loved one.

Everyone’s experience of addiction is different, and each individual responds differently to the various kinds of care and treatment approaches on offer.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse provides a set of principles for effective drug treatment that you should look for in all rehabilitation programs. These include individualized treatment, treatment of co-occurring mental health disorders, and treatment of the whole person.

You can research different centers online or contact them by phone. It can also help to seek professional advice if you cannot determine what the best approach is.

At Cirque Lodge, our phone lines are open twenty-four hours a day to offer you advice and support.

How Long Should My Loved One Stay in Treatment?

How Long Should My Loved One Stay in Treatment?

The length of stay in treatment depends on an individual’s circumstances and the specific program.

Residential stays are usually between 30 and 90 days. Research shows that longer treatment has better outcomes because there is more time to develop the skills to prevent relapse.

Drug addiction is a chronic condition, and recovery is a lifelong process. Support should continue even after you leave a rehab center, in the form of outpatient care or regular support group meetings.

What Is Involved in Counseling and Therapy?

What Is Involved in Counseling and Therapy?

Counseling can involve many kinds of therapy and care.

Different treatment centers offer different types of counseling. The best programs offer a combination of group and individual counseling sessions. Group counseling allows substance users to learn from each other and find strength and acceptance in shared experiences. Individual counseling provides a private setting for dealing with more personal issues.

Counseling often involves cognitive-behavioral therapy, where you identify the underlying causes of your addiction and develop strategies to avoid or overcome them. Family counseling can be fundamental in helping you heal relationships and lay the foundations for a solid support network, which is essential to lifelong recovery.

Cirque Lodge is a licensed rehabilitation center offering medically-reviewed, evidence-based treatment programs and is staffed by a team of medical professionals.

What Is Involved in the Treatment Program?

Everyone’s experience of addiction is different, and effective treatment should be individualized to meet the varying needs of each client.

This typically involves different treatment approaches, including behavioral therapies, experiential therapies, medical help, and family and social support. Programs should treat any co-occurring mental health disorders, such as depression and anxiety, alongside addiction.

What Does Therapy Help With?

Treatment programs offer several types of therapy to help recovery from drug use and addiction.

One of the most common types is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT works by identifying thought patterns and behaviors that underlie addiction and developing the skills to overcome them. It breaks down unhealthy behavioral patterns, reinforces healthy behaviors, and helps develop coping strategies.

Therapy sessions can be individual, group, or with the whole family.

Individual counseling helps identify the causes of a client’s addiction and supports them through the process of finding resolutions. Their progress throughout the treatment allows their dedicated therapist to adapt their treatment where necessary to meet their individual needs.

Group therapy offers structure and support for individuals in recovery. Support groups are a source of inspiration, knowledge, and acceptance through shared experience. Group therapy can also take place through enriching experiential activities.

Family therapy explores how addiction affects the entire family and helps you develop the skills needed to support a family member and help them overcome their addiction.
