Creating an environment suited to learning and active education, determining the motivation for success in therapy or treatment, and offering supportive encouragement are all cited as the main ingredients to a successful treatment, no matter the specific treatment program or platform. The most important, however, is a patient-therapist relationship that offers a real connection. Utilizing a strength-based approach to recovery, provides a clear advantage in establishing a therapeutic relationship and increasing client engagement in the therapeutic process.
All Addiction programs should concentrate on the core issues that have led the patient to the addiction. Most individuals who struggle with addiction may have some emotional or social issues that they are trying to escape. Drugs and alcohol mayprovide them a temporary release from their pain to help them function in their daily lives. Addiction programs should concentrate on these deep set of emotional issues in order to heal the patient completely.
However, the set of skills needed to overcome an underlying emotional or psychological problem, are not same set skills needed tohelp clients lead happy and healthy lives. Addiction often isolates the individual from the rest of society as they cease to become a part of the social fabric. They may lose their jobs and become distracted from their responsibilities while becoming solely concerned with chasing their “high.” Therefore, a comprehensive treatment program should not only address the weaknesses that may have been result of, or the cause of their addiction, but has to address the strengths that would allow clients to live healthy fulfilling lives beyond their addictions, where they can feel a sense of connection within the social fabric.
