Outpatient Rehabilitation Treatments

Synopsis: what is an outpatient rehabilitation treatment program and who is it best suited to accommodate

 

Outpatient rehab facilities can be very beneficial for individuals with mild substance abuse problems seeking sobriety. An outpatient rehabilitation program offers drug and alcohol treatment sessions that can be maintained in accordance with a patient’s schedule while meeting the requirements for a successful outcome. A patient has more flexibility to attend meetings and appointments during various times throughout the week.

This schedule allows patients to continue with their personal responsibilities and to continue living on their own but they are required to check into the outpatient rehab treatment at their designated times for counseling. Outpatient programs come in a variety of formats, differing levels of intensity and offer an array of services. The general focus is on education and providing a support network.

Addiction Counseling in GA

Synopsis: a broad definition of addiction counseling

Millions of Americans suffer from a dependence on drugs, alcohol, and destructive behaviors such as shoplifting or gambling. Addiction counseling is a highly specialized form of treatment that evaluates and appropriately cares for an individual to ultimately achieve a life-long recovery. Cognitive behavioral therapy, family counseling and other types of therapy can help to attain rehabilitation. Psychotherapy can also treat other mental health conditions that often play a role in addiction.

The problematic and addictive elements are initially assessed and once an evaluation is determined, a specialized treatment plan can be developed. Addiction counseling then is intended to assist in overcoming any dependencies and behaviors, facilitating the individual’s growth and values, in order to achieve a healthier life.

Substance Abuse Treatment GA

Synopsis: Substance abuse treatment greatly improves the chances of breaking criminal offense cycles. The judicial system uses consequential punishments to deter repeated drug offenses while substance abuse treatment aims to rehabilitate.

A common and cyclical movement of those with substance abuse disorders and the paths of substance abuse treatment versus incarceration is demonstrated in our legal system by which the practice of requiring people with addictions to remain drug-free as a condition of probation for drug-related offenses and of criminalizing relapse. Being that addiction is considered a brain disease and relapsing is a symptom of it, it can be contemplated how the laws are encouraging, rather than narrowing, success rates. If the policies in place are not setting an offender up for optimal recovery then perhaps that can best be achieved by a comprehensive substance abuse treatment program. Treatments can involve medication, psychotherapy and long-term follow up.

The sustainability of such treatment programs far surpasses the costs and tribulations of criminalization, yet imprisonment for nonviolent drug offenses and the respective statistics are still staggering. While consequences in any legal system are necessary, they should be with the primary intention of individual rehabilitation. The criminal justice system utilizes punishments to deter repeated drug offenses while substance abuse treatments aim to wholly rehabilitate.
