Aspects of Quality Treatment
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), there are more than 14,500 substance abuse treatment facilities in America.
However, not all treatment facilities offer the same level of treatment, multiple approaches, or customized, individual program development.
Just Believe Recovery offers the following facets of quality treatment:
Addiction is treated as a complex disease, and each client is treated as an individual with unique experiences, need, and goals. Rather that using a one-size-fits-all model common to other treatment approaches, we employ a multi-therapeutic approach based on information gathered during a comprehensive individual assessment of each client.
Having personalized treatment is critical, but treatment that remains static can eventually become ineffectual. Thus, clients needs must to be re-assessed on a continuing basis, and treatment approaches and goals altered to reflect ongoing changes. Re-evaluation is particularly critical during moments of relapse or severe mental distress.
Scientific studies, while sometimes imperfect, are by far the best evidence to show that treatment is actually effective. Keep in mind, not all methods and models of treatment have been scientifically and impartially studied. However, a treatment program should have a strong base of proven, time-tested therapies.
Aftercare Services and Relapse Prevention
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) estimates that 40–60% of people who receive treatment for substance abuse will at some point suffer a relapse. The manner in which these lapses and relapses are handled, however, can make a big difference in long-term recovery results. Relapse prevention training can help to minimize the number of relapses and their duration, and aftercare services can help to provide support should a relapse occur.
SAMHSA estimates that of the approximately 22 million Americans with substance use disorders, 8.9 million also suffer from a co-occurring mental health condition. Even if you’ve never been diagnosed with a mental health condition, finding a treatment center that can accurately diagnose and treat mental disorders is essential for recovery.
