What do we mean by alternative addiction treatment?
In the field of drug addiction treatment and recovery, there are the alternative addiction treatment facilities and the traditional facilities. Traditional facilities are designed like clinics, hospitals, or motels whereas the alternative facilities are residential in nature and provide a homelike environment for the individual. They are usually furnished with many of the amenities that an individual is used to at home while being able to totally focus on overcoming their addiction and recovering from it.
The alternative addiction treatment center offers in-patient and out-patient programs depending upon what your specific clinical and professional needs are. There are roughly 11,000 of these types of rehab centers currently in operation in the US today. Out-patient programs allow you to return home in the evenings and are geared to individuals who:
- are the sole guardian or parent and provider of children in the home
- do not have the financial means or health insurance to cover the cost of an in-patient program
- are pursuing their education
- are working a full-time job
On the other hand, the in-patient alternative addiction treatment center requires the addicted individual to move into the facility for the duration of the program. This is done in order to remove you from a potentially harmful environment and place you in a safe haven where you can focus completely on your recovery.
What to expect in an alternative addiction treatment program?
The better alternative addiction treatment programs are a multi-faceted format that was developed to address addicted individuals specific clinical and personal needs therefore ensuring a successful recovery. You can expect to undergo detoxification and medical treatment, counseling, and then aftercare support. Additionally, if you have been diagnosed with having a behavioral or mental disorder, you will most likely have to undergo some form of treatment or therapy for this.
There are a number of behavioral and mental disorders that oftentimes co-exist with drug addiction and can include disorders such as anxiety, depression, or even eating disorders. Group and individual counseling sessions are typically part of the alternative addiction treatment program which also helps to determine if the addiction was caused by the disorder or if the addiction caused the disorder. In either case, receiving treatment for both issues is imperative.
