06 Jun What is the Rehab Treatment Model?
The word “rehab” is a popular one that seems to get thrown around a lot these days. Drug and alcohol rehab refers to the processes of treatment for dependency on these substances. Treatment under the rehab treatment model focuses on therapeutic interventions, often administered at Utah addiction centers in the mountains, where residents are far away from temptations that lead to relapse.
The Mind and Treatment
Many rehabs in the mountains follow the rehab treatment model by addressing the individual’s psychological dependency on drugs or alcohol. The goal is to teach the recovering addict new ways of living sober and clean. Rather than solely receiving support for stopping use of the substances, the person in recovery learns how to analyze their own habits corresponding to their addictions, primarily through the use of therapy.
Drug and alcohol therapies within Utah addiction treatment centers can take many forms. The best therapy for the individual depends on the root causes of their addiction. The therapy or combination of therapies a person undergoes is part of that individual’s comprehensive treatment plan while in residence at a treatment center lodge in the mountains.
Therapies include cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, equine and experiential therapy. They may also include eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, mind-body bridging as a personal experience, motivational interviewing, psychoeducational intervention and Serenity Biosound Lounge therapy.
The recovery period spent in a Utah addiction treatment center varies from person to person. Some people need 30 days, while others require a longer stay. Under the rehab treatment model, the rehabilitation process is a continuous one. It does not end when the individual leaves the residential recovery center. The addict is always in recovery mode, working daily to maintain a life without drugs and alcohol, with the support of outpatient services, sober living apartments, comprehensive aftercare planning, local support organizations, family, friends and more.
Individualized Rehab Treatment Model Plans
A good treatment plan is customized to the addict’s unique needs, based on factors such as the type of substance addiction, extent of abuse, mental health concerns, physical health history and personal preferences. Rehab can take many forms under this treatment model, including Residential, Outpatient, Day Treatment (PHP) and Gender Specific Sober Living. All of these programs are best delivered in a program that offers limited enrollment of ten clients or less, this way therapists have enough time to spend with each individual client. Clients make the most progress working on issues specific to their individual situation during individual sessions with their therapist. When a program has more than ten clients this almost always means less therapy time, as the clients with the most need take up all of the resources.
