Regular detox program (non-medical)
Regular Detox is a method of treatment in which a person will be in a live-in setting in order to stop using their particular drug of choice. In most cases, the person is interviewed daily to encourage and coax them as they go through their Detox. In many centers, the person is also prescribed certain medications to assist in their treatment. This type of detox will normally take between 3 to 10 days.
Short term residential treatment
When referring to short-term normally the drug rehabilitation center in question is delivering a 14 to 28-day program and is residential. These are drug treatment programs that deal with addiction in a variety of ways, including 12-step programs, nutritional programs, counseling, etc. Despite it being a short-term program the person is required to stay at the facility 24/7. Generally speaking, all residential treatment programs will require that a medical exam and assessment be done prior to inscription.
Day and night program
These drug treatment programs are not residential whereby the person is expected to come to meetings and/or substance abuse counseling sessions on a 5-day schedule or 5-evening schedule. This works well for those who cannot stop their job or if a person works the night shift the day program could be an option. Depending on the drug treatment facility the services delivered will vary and it is important you assess for yourself what you want to achieve in your recovery.
Cognitive-behavioral treatment (CBT)
This cognitive method used to overcome addiction is base on changing the addictive personality’s habits through various exercises and educational means to get the addict to change his or her way of thinking and behaving about drugs or alcohol. This method can be done either residential or out-patient and can be government-funded in some areas. Read more
Methadone maintenance treatment for Opioid (MMT)
The methadone maintenance program is a treatment program that entails long-term prescription of methadone as a replacement of the drug (opioid) on which the client was addicted. A complete methadone maintenance program will also dispense counseling, case management, and other medical services.
A method to overcome substance abuse is through arts in that the person can express emotion without verbalization. By using drawing, sculpting, and other different mediums the person is able to express emotions or hidden fears and anxieties, etc. which becomes an outlet instead of numbing with the use of drugs and/or alcohol as they did before. No knowledge of the arts is required to do this type of program.
Sometimes the person is stressed out and anxious and overwhelmed with worry about life and other things and the only way to begin their addiction treatment is to get the person to relax and be put at ease with life and themselves. Massage Therapy is a drug rehabilitation program that can bring about a state of relaxation about one’s addiction so that proper rehabilitation and counseling of the underlying problem to addiction can now start.
