It’s difficult for individuals to determine when drug use or mild dependence on a substance has become a full-blown addiction. Family, friends, and coworkers may help make someone aware that they have a problem with drug abuse and should seek addiction help. Once a person accepts that they have a drug addiction, they are already on the path to recovery. The next step is to decide on a path to sobriety. A drug addiction treatment program like the one offered by Fresh Start Recovery Center provides personalized treatments. Reach out today to speak with a trained representative at 833.625.0398 to discuss treatment options.
How Severe Is My Addiction?
Addiction is a spectrum disorder. It can be helpful to examine basic criteria to assess if you or your loved one has a mild, moderate, or severe addiction. An initial determination can help you decide if it’s time to enter a drug addiction treatment program like those offered by Fresh Start Recovery Center in Maryland.
The following is a list of some of the common symptoms of addiction:
- Desire to quit but unable to do so
- Lack of responsibility
- Relationship problems
If you believe you’re struggling with an addiction, there are a range of treatment options available.
Common Types of Addiction Treatment
Once you decide to enter a treatment program, this is an excellent time to consider treatment options. In cases of mild drug abuse, a person may not need a full detox program. Medically supervised detox typically takes place in an inpatient program. Those with a mild addiction may be able to manage to recover with an outpatient program. It’s important to discuss these questions with a medical professional. There is a range of treatment options available today.
Clients may need round-the-clock medical supervision as they go through the challenging initial withdrawal process that accompanies detox. We recommend this treatment for those with a moderate to severe addiction as it is safer to detox under medical supervision in case of emergency.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) can be part of a client’s long-term treatment plans. IOP may be a sensible option for clients who do not need a medically assisted detox. Some clients prefer this option as they are able to return to their homes at the end of the day and sleep in their beds.
Outpatient treatment (OT) is often a better option for those with mild substance abuse disorders. OT is a method for clients to gain valuable support without the stress of setting aside daily responsibilities and personal obligations to family and work.
Fresh Start’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) allows clients to live at home while immersing themselves in the rehab program. This treatment differs from a residential or inpatient treatment program where you would stay on-site 24/7. In Fresh Start’s PHP, clients have the option of returning home at night and on the weekends or staying in our sober living community housing, where clients receive additional support.
When clients arrive at Fresh Start Recovery Center, you go through an initial assessment. Our addiction specialists will create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs. While recovery is a lifelong process, we want you to see results as soon as possible through our intensive individual and group therapy sessions.
Therapy helps those struggling with addiction develop healthy coping skills for sober living. Fresh Start incorporates both evidence-based practices and holistic approaches to care for both your body and mind. Therapeutic approaches offered by Fresh Start’s drug addiction treatment program include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Group therapy
- Trauma-focused treatment
- Expressive therapy
- Family therapy
