All too often, rehab centers fail to offer comprehensive addiction treatment services. However, having a robust and inclusive program is paramount for long-term recovery and sustained sobriety. At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, all of our treatment programs incorporate three significant components. They include a medical approach, a psychotherapeutic approach, and a social services approach. Let’s explore the different modalities comprehensive addiction treatment services incorporate. 

Types of Addiction Programs

When it comes to substance abuse treatment, there are two main types of programs: inpatient and outpatient. The goal for both treatment methods is to help the individual overcome addiction. 

Inpatient Programs

Inpatient rehab programs follow a rigorous schedule and guidelines. These are meant to provide a sense of structure and allow patients to rebuild responsibility, integrity, life skills, and other attributes lost to addiction. 

Generally, most people will start their recovery journey with inpatient rehab. These programs have a minimum length of 28 days, and patients reside in a medically supervised treatment facility.

Outpatient Programs

These types of programs offer more flexibility, which is critical to encourage people to enter treatment. Most of the time, family obligations, and things like school or work can prevent someone from seeking treatment. Outpatient services are a flexible option for those struggling with addiction.

Outpatient rehab programs have daytime or evening therapies, with each patient returning to their homes overnight. 

Comprehensive Addiction Treatment Services

Beyond the type of program someone starts, the idea of comprehensive addiction treatment services is to explore alternative therapies that promote recovery and progress. There’s no single treatment option for addiction. It’s vital to find rehab centers that offer various levels of care, and that can pivot to meet your unique needs.

After the detox process, it’s paramount to tackle the addiction. Through individual therapy, people can understand what drives addictive behavior and see if there’s an underlying cause of addiction. 

Detox Programs and Medication Assisted Therapies

When someone abruptly stops using drugs, they’re likely to experience withdrawal symptoms. Detox can help ease these symptoms. Addiction medications can help ease withdrawal symptoms and control some of the withdrawal symptoms. While drugs can offer balance, they come at a high price for recovering addicts. Again, inpatient programs are the best course of action for managing this type of dual diagnosis. A licensed doctor will determine the right kind of drugs to help ease withdrawal through medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

Dual Diagnosis Programs for Mental Health

Almost 74% of adults suffering from a substance use disorder in 2017 struggled with an alcohol use disorder. Drugs can rewire various brain parts that affect mood and behavior, which can lead to co-occurring mental health disorders. Dual diagnosis programs ensure patients receive an integrated treatment plan that looks at both disorders as interconnected. Not treating both mental illness and addiction simultaneously increases the risk of relapse and other side effects. 

Evidence-based Therapy

Part of an active substance abuse treatment will likely include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Focusing on addressing behavioral health issues can help treat the underlying cause of addiction. Through this form of treatment, patients face their thoughts and feelings, both for their mental illness and struggles as an addict. Finding a way to control these emotions will help them prepare for craving episodes or withdrawal symptoms from the addiction. 

Individualized Addiction Treatment Plans

At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, we believe treatment approaches should be individualized. Each patient spends time with the clinical team upon their arrival. This is to determine the course of care that would most benefit them. Patients work with their team to develop a treatment plan. This is the core of comprehensive addiction treatment. Also, family involvement in the patient’s treatment is recommended.

Therefore, each patient will need to identify their goals and work towards their achievement daily. Goals may be modified for the duration of treatment. As a result, these individualized treatment plans create higher engagement—the higher engagement results in higher success rates.

 By integrating these three major components into our addiction treatment center, we can offer different levels of care. We’re able to provide quality drug and alcohol treatment that’s thorough without being triggering. Comprehensive addiction treatment gives patients holistic, personalized, and effective care.
