An Individualized Treatment Plan is Just What You Need in Rehab: Here’s Why

Drug addiction is difficult for people who are trying to work through internal issues and need help getting past detox. Once they are on the other side of detox, they need full-on rehab with counseling, supportive services, and treatment plans which help them re-integrate into their lives. Individualized treatment plans are helpful and are designed to support them through the physical and emotional demands of addiction.

Treatment for Addiction

Treatment for addiction is unique to each person, depending on their history of use, habits, and realities of life. No matter how many times a person enters rehab, each situation is unique with a unique set of challenges. Treatment for addiction takes time to build the kind of plan that will support an individual’s healing. How it works is that each person who enters treatment is given a similar protocol to help them get started:

  • Evaluate the person when they enter rehab
  • Gauge the variety of substances used, the severity of the addiction, and concerns that contribute to addictive behavior
  • Triggers that may lead to relapse
  • Stressors
  • Physical and mental health concerns

The goal is to create space for someone in recovery to be successful. The treatment takes addiction at each level and helps them manage the symptoms of their condition. The successful treatment takes care of addiction and helps them navigate recovery.

Why it Works

People who are on the fence about individualized treatment plans need to understand the benefits. It is hard for some people to commit to the process but it is effective if the person wants it to be. If they work hard, stay focused, and stay connected to those who can help them, they are more likely to stay sober and clean. There are no guarantees, but they can have an easier time navigating the challenges if they stay focused. Other benefits of an individualized approach include:

  • Manages all aspects or concerns caused by addiction in actionable ways
  • Creates therapies that work
  • Tests and treats problems relating to addiction
  • Builds strong recovery network that bridges the gap between alienation and socialization

Most treatment plans vary in the little details and should address withdrawal, co-occurring disorders, mental health, and aftercare needs. Medication therapy should also be utilized. While withdrawal and detox are managed in this way, health concerns will also be assessed. Someone who struggles with treatment therapies should speak to their treatment provider to re-evaluate priorities. When loved ones need treatment, they typically do better when it is focused on their individual circumstances so they can feel supported in getting their needs met.
