You’ll hear all kinds of promises when looking around at various treatment centers. While some of them may be true, it’s also important to recognize that there are unsavory actors in every industry—and they’ll say anything to get you (and your money) through their doors.
But the bottom line is this: Are they clinically effective?
It’s that goal that drives us at The Raleigh House, because no matter how nice our facility is, how talented our chef is, how educated our therapists are, how happy you feel here, there is only one thing that matters. Does our program work? Are you getting better here?
Clinically Effective Addiction Treatment
Let’s take a look at exactly what we mean by clinically effective addiction treatment. The National Institute on Drug Abuse outlines exactly what constitutes effective rehab—a list backed by research.
Major tenets include:
- Addiction is a complex, but treatable disease.
- No single treatment is appropriate for everyone.
- Treatment is most effective when it’s three months or longer.
- Behavioral therapies are essential, but medication can also be an important part of treatment.
- Co-occurring disorders, such as depression, must also be addressed in order for treatment to be effective.
- Detox is only the first step of treatment and, by itself, does little to change long-term drug use.
- Treatment does not need to be voluntary to be effective.
- An individual’s treatment plan must be tailored to them and be able to meet their changing needs.
