Addiction Rehabilitation and Treatment
Types & Levels of Addiction Treatment
Detoxification: A medically managed detox program will help stabilise the patient and help them overcome withdrawal symptoms from drugs or alcohol. These programs may last a few days to weeks. Once stabilisation is achieved, the patient may need an inpatient program.
Inpatient or Residential Rehab: Inpatient and residential rehab programs are live-in solutions where patients will receive supervised treatment and structured care plans to overcome their addiction. These programs may last anywhere from a few weeks to several months and may be followed by outpatient rehab. Depending on the program, patients may receive 24/7 monitoring from a licensed professional.
Outpatient Rehab & Intensive Outpatient Programs: Outpatient programs allow users to attend therapy and receive treatment on their own time as patients do not need to be on-site or live at the facility. Treatment may occur at a substance use treatment centre, NHS-affiliated clinic, or other facilities, meeting regularly. Some outpatient programs may even offer night and weekend programs.
Treatments and Therapies Involved With Rehabilitation
Addiction treatment to reduce substance abuse commonly consists of a combination of group and individual therapy sessions. These sessions will focus on teaching those in recovery the skills needed to get and stay sober, as well as how to navigate various situations without turning to drugs or alcohol.
Individual, Group & Family Therapy: Patients may take part in therapy guided by a therapist in a 1 on 1 format, with a group in a safe, peer-supported atmosphere, and/or with participation from family or anyone significant in the patient’s life.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT encourages clients to question and examine recurring thoughts to phase out those that are negative and unhealthy. CBT can be applied in the treatment of many different types of problematic substance use.
Contingency Management (CM): CM may also be effective in treating several types of substance use disorder—for example, alcohol, opioids, marijuana, and stimulants—and is used to encourage or reinforce sobriety. This addiction treatment method provides material rewards as motivation for desirable behaviours, such as maintaining sobriety.
12-Step Facilitation: 12-Step facilitation therapy aims to promote continued abstinence by engaging people in recovery with 12-Step peer support groups. Meetings are hosted by several different 12-Step fellowships varieties, including Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.

Family Member Support Groups
Drug addiction affects the entire family, from parents to children, brothers to sisters, and sometimes even close friends. While substance abuse affects each family differently, there are many common adversities among families facing drug addiction, including financial difficulties, legal issues, emotional distress, and domestic violence.
Loving someone struggling with addiction can be incredibly difficult, painful, and chaotic. Because drug addiction impacts the whole family, treating the addicted person may not, on its own, result in any lasting changes within the family unit.
Support groups can be a vital resource for the family and friends of those struggling with addiction.
