Drug Abuse Treatment

I. What Therapies are Offered for Drug Abuse Treatment? 

In residential therapy (Inpatient Rehab), the addicted person is isolated from the environment which was responsible to cause drug addiction, so they can learn new skills or habits to develop sobriety. A person chooses to go to a specialized facility for a few weeks or months. Though it works great for short term, there is still a growing concern as to whether such programs provide longer recovery from drug abuse as compared to outpatient programs. Chances of relapse are often higher after getting back to the previous environment. 

It is better to seek proper counseling from experts who can suggest best therapies for you to help you recover.

II. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

It teaches an individual to recognize thoughts, moods, and circumstances which are responsible for drug craving. A therapist will help you deal with such triggers and replace adverse feelings and thoughts with healthier options which are more helpful for sobriety. Skills which are learned in CBT can last longer.

III. Contingency Management Therapy

In this type of therapy, person taking drug abuse treatment gets positive results to stay clean. Privileges in treatment and vouchers for services or products are common. It is helpful in rehab studies. However, its positive results start to decline once incentives stop and it costs high.

IV. Motivational Interviews

Confrontation is the part of traditional drug abuse therapies. The therapies break the walls down and force the addicts to accept the reality. Most therapists support motivational interviewing. It is a recent method of counseling. In this process, a therapist tries to improve the natural motivation in the addict for change.

V. Family and Couples Therapy

Along with user’s life, prescription drug or opioid addiction also affect the whole family. For successful treatment, it is important to build strong relationships with friends and family. Several counseling methods cover family members of addicted individual.
