Addiction is a complex, chronic disease for which no cure exists; only treatment. When looking for a treatment center, it is important to find the right one that can address the specific issues associated with the patient’s direct needs. For long-term results and healing, a supportive and safe center that has a solid team is crucial to the recovery process. The best centers will have some of the following qualities:
A Knowledgeable and Compassionate Team
A top-notch team will have a huge impact on the quality of care that is provided and, as a result, lead to net positive outcomes for their patients. Your first experience with a center when you reach out will be their front-end staff and you will be able to get an idea immediately relating to their disposition. If they are friendly, helpful, interested in you, and eager to answer your questions, these are good signs.
Treatment Plan and Facilities
The best results come from patients who are committed to recovery and healing and are willing to go the distance and stay throughout the whole process, seeing it to the very end. Varying levels of therapy and treatment, including detox, residential support, and guided post-recovery care, will be hit all the bases necessary to see to it your loved ones have the very best chance for a new, healthy life.
Programs that have all these components increase the chances that your loved ones will not face any interruption in their care. They won’t have to face an ever-changing situation, transitioning to new places with new staff, which can be overwhelming and can distort the process. Additionally, the quality of the facility to promote fundamental healing is essential. While there may be many amenities, like swimming or fancy fitness classes (which are nice and will help those in treatment engage in healthy activities), the importance should be more on the restorative and soothing treatment. This type of deep healing should be offered not only to the patient but also to the family for helping heal the broken bonds that, many times, do occur as a result of dealing with addiction.
As such, a strong, supportive, and understanding network of individuals can go a long way. Building meaningful relationships within an established community, where there is functional support between members, can increase chances of long-term success. Community and family support, meshed with lifestyle changes like proper nutrition, exercise, and mental clarity, make up a winning combination for the future.
An Ongoing Process of Healing
Once the program is completed, it has been widely studied that the first 90 days can make or break the gains made during the patient’s time in the program. For this reason, the most critical component to a solid program will be the continuing resources and support offered for patients and families after the initial care. Comprehensive aftercare plans, even alumni groups that are associated with the center, allow the patient to continue their access to the critical support and resources needed for positive, lifelong results.
