Licensing, Certifications, Accreditation
Reputable substance abuse and mental health treatment recovery centers have proper, up-to-date certifications. These certifications provide clients with trust in the exceptional commitment and standards a treatment center and its medical professionals intend to uphold. Quality treatment programs incorporate evidence-based and science-based practices. TruHealing Gaithersburg encourages clients to conduct due diligence when looking into treatment success rates and outcomes. These can ensure you feel comfortable and able to trust our commitment to excellence.
Does the Program Offer Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
Drug abuse and mental health are both separate and intertwined. A person with an addiction should always seek a treatment program that will evaluate them for mental health issues. Co-occurring mental health problems require specific therapies that play an essential role in recovery. At TruHealing Gaithersburg, we evaluate clients for a range of conditions, including:
An accurate diagnosis is always necessary to provide the client with the proper treatment. For patients with a dual diagnosis, ideal treatment incorporates care for addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. An effective treatment program can offer services that can coordinate to develop a treatment plan. This plan helps clients struggling with addiction and their mental health work through their issues under appropriate medical supervision.
Do I Need Medical Detox?
Going through detox while at a treatment facility can allow clients to begin the rehab process without delay. For many patients, medications combined with therapy will be necessary. Medications can play a crucial role in detox. They can assist clients in maintaining a sense of stability while going through withdrawal and cravings. At the end of this challenging stage, your mind and body will be at a helpful baseline that will help you move forward on your path to recovery.
How Long Is My Treatment Program?
The length of time spent in treatment depends on individual progress instead of focusing on a specific number of days or weeks. The best programs provide multiple levels of treatment so that clients can move from higher levels of care like a residential program to outpatient or aftercare programs.
Inpatient Treatment Programs
In certain circumstances, the ideal way to treat addiction is to spend time away from family, friends, work, and other responsibilities. These factors could act as triggers for you to continue abusing substances. In a residential or inpatient treatment program, you are in a different environment away from the distractions of everyday life. This way, you can focus on yourself, your health, your safety, and your recovery. Doing this is not only for your own well-being but for the sake of those you love. Residential treatment programs are able to provide extra amenities that make you feel safe and comfortable while you reclaim your life.
Those who feel they already have a solid support system may want to consider outpatient treatment (OT). In OT, you can live at home and continue to fulfill work, family, and childcare responsibilities.
Keep in mind that living at home should be a safe space. If you are tempted by substance abuse while undergoing treatment because of the environment in your home, then OT may not be a sensible or practical option for you.
Partial Hospitalization Program
In a partial hospitalization program (PHP), clients go to a treatment center several days each week but return home at the end of the day. PHPs can be a sensible choice for those dealing with a mild addiction or those who have already undergone previous recovery treatments. PHPs can be a reasonable choice for individuals who cannot enter an inpatient program due to family or work-related obligations. Some evidence indicates that a PHP can help those with mild addictions avoid the need for a full-time inpatient program.
An aftercare program offers additional support clients need to overcome cravings, temptations due to negative thinking, and other high-risk triggers. They can also support you during hard days as you move through the everyday challenges of a sober life. This extra safety net helps prevent relapse and encourages clients to thrive long after they have finished their treatment programs.
Good Programs Treat The Whole Person
An effective treatment program addresses the whole person and not just the addiction. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to treating addiction. Keep in mind that treatment will vary depending on the person as well as the type of substance the person is addicted to, including:
The treatment selected must match the individual’s needs and circumstances.
