When an addict is drawn toward a recovery program, there are many choices. The presence of so much information on the Internet, family physicians, friends and others may present too much information to someone already handling a lot of physical, mental and emotional input. The prospect of undertaking the journey to recovery may seem daunting, and the level of choice available in recovery treatment programs can add to the propensity for the addict to simply put the project aside, and return to it ‘later’.
This personalized and customized approach takes advantage of the best advances in technology and science that back up addiction recovery therapies medical and mental health foundations. As recovery treatment science evolves the highest level treatment programs are able to weave new information about addict treatment into personalized plans as appropriate, giving each patient the benefit of the best in medical science.
The only part of the recovery process which may be said to be completely standardized, even in the most custom and bespoke therapy situations, is the initial medical evaluation. For the safety of the addiction recovery patient, it is critical that a licensed and trained physician specializing in the underlying medical dangers to recovery, take a thorough physical examination of the patient and evaluate their medical readiness to undertake the program. After that, each recovery program should be completely unique. After all, not every addiction recovery patient requires a detoxification process, but some do.
However, not all types of therapy work equally well for all recovering patients. Group therapy and family therapy are useful when a patient is learning to re-build relationships and develop trust in controlled situations, but not all patients are ready for that level of intimacy as they are going through the first stages of recovery. Some patients benefit from a longer experience with one on one personal psychotherapy. Part of developing an addict’s personal treatment plan is really knowing that patient, and understanding how they learn best. By applying the right combination of approaches to give the addict experiential, auditory or visual cues, the treating therapist is able to get information through to the patient more quickly, more effectively and with less stress.
