Important Factors Of Treatment Programs

Since you’re aware of the key terms of the programs, use them to choose what’s important for your or your loved one’s recovery. 

Mode Of Treatment

Mode of treatment means the method used by the center to treat patients and some of those methods are: 

Dual Diagnosis Treatment – This treatment involves treating the underlying issue that led to addiction and the addiction itself. It includes identifying disorders like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, OCD or ADHD which has either caused the addiction or is a result of one. To avoid relapse, both the issues need to be treated simultaneously. 

Group Therapy and Personal Counseling – These are two parts of the recovery procedure. Group therapy involves peer outing and activities and later sharing their experiences to the group. Personal counseling consists of individual sessions allowing patients to look for personal interests in detail and sharing it with a therapist later. 

However, there are other therapies which are also beneficial like: 


The kind of facilities needed are totally up to the patients. Their choices would differ greatly. Here are some of the facilities that rehab centers would provide:

  • Surfing
  • Camping
  • Fishing
  • Basketball
  • Community volleyball
  • Yoga 

Continuum of Care

This is a complete treatment program right from the beginning to the end, that is, from detox to post treatment care. Some centers provide only one of these and some can have a seamless treatment program. Going for a complete treatment program gives you better recovery results than opting for any one part of the treatment process. There could be programs like: 

  • Drug and alcohol detox 
  • Residential treatment program
  • Extended care
  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Sober living
  • Post treatment care
