Comprehensive Addiction Recovery: From Detox to Aftercare

With so many facilities for medical detox, inpatient addiction treatment, and outpatient drug rehab, some LA treatment centers offer a more comprehensive approach…

Quality care during medical detox: Whether in a traditional hospital setting, or in a sub-acute, clinical, residential-type setting, the detox stage of addiction treatment must be done with a professional health care team. At a minimum, this team should include the physician, nurse(s), and emergency medical technicians, because the medical detox stage of addiction treatment can be life threatening—especially if the patient is detoxing from alcohol, benzodiazepines, and some other categories of drugs.

Patient-centered drug rehab: The national nonprofit Institute on Patient and Family Centered Care describes this as addiction treatment, recovery, and health care that focus on the patient’s individual needs and preferences, and emphasize collaboration with the patient as part of the health care team. Patient-centered addiction treatment means that the alcohol and drug rehab process will focus on what really works for that patient. Inclusion of family, attention to culturally-relevant practices, and honoring preferences are all part of patient-centered addiction treatment, both during the inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment phases.

Clinical and Complementary therapies: Patients suffering from drug and alcohol addiction or dual diagnosis can benefit from a holistic approach that entails both traditional clinical treatment as well as therapeutic modalities. Programs such as CBT, DBT, nutrition therapy, art therapy, music therapy, yoga, massage, group and individual therapy sessions can all help to promote lasting addiction recovery and a means for building a healthier and happier life.

Prevention & Aftercare: A comprehensive addiction treatment plan would not be complete without addressing the triggers of relapse and how to use various therapies to promote long lasting sobriety. In addition, a recovery plan should include ongoing support through meetings, sponsors, sober coaches and a vibrant alumni recovery community.
