Why Different Approaches to Addiction Treatment are Important

Modern science has proven there is a biological and chemical process that tackles the body when certain chemicals are ingested.
Different people react differently when in the same situation. You’ve probably met people who aren’t fazed when they’re yelled at, and people who break down into tears when the same words are spoken to them. The physical body is no different – cancer impacts some smokers, but not others just as asbestos hasn’t affected everyone who’s encountered the dust. In the same sense, addiction can certainly impact people differently.

Modern science has proven there is a biological and chemical process that tackles the body when certain chemicals are ingested. For instance, most of us are familiar with tales of being “blackout drunk” after passing the amount of alcohol that the body and brain can handle.  The ingestion of that level of alcohol actually shuts down the brain’s memory centers, and your brain can’t recall what happens.  This is frightening enough because it’s a permanent condition. Once the memory is not saved to the brain, it can’t be recaptured later.  The time, experiences, and information that may have been gained during the time in question – gone.

The threshold for alcohol poisoning is not the same for everyone – it can vary based on body weight, genes and other factors.  When it comes to addiction, the principle is the same:  addiction is not the same for everyone, and varies based on different physical, mental and emotional factors in the individual person.  Because the addiction experience isn’t the same for everyone, it’s unrealistic to expect the recovery experience to be the same for all people.  When looking for addiction treatment or recovery opportunities for yourself or a loved one, it’s important to make sure that you’re choosing a program that meets your family’s needs.

It may be important that treatment allows for the patient to be home at the end of the day, sharing what was learned with family and relaxing in the familiarity of friends.  In some scenarios, it’s best for the patient to exit the family for a short time, to receive in-patient treatment.  This distance can help stop bad habits and give the family some space to begin recovery themselves.  Deciding between an inpatient or out-patient facility is just the beginning.  Making sure you have a good fit with the therapeutic professionals, the teams of supporting addiction treatment professionals, and the environment of the treatment facility can reduce the stress and emotional upheaval that you may experience during addiction treatment.  It’s best to take the opportunity to get a thorough medical evaluation before beginning, so you know that you will have the best experience possible.
