Yes there are many addiction treatments available but it will take work to find the one that is right for you or your loved one. What to look for when you are seeking treatment:
A loose definition of addiction is when a drug user cannot stop abusing drugs or alcohol, even if they want to. Addiction is a disease that can happen at any age, to anyone from any class background. Just as Diabetes and Cancer are a disease so is addiction and it must be treated as such- with help. Addiction is a physiological or psychological dependance on a substance that is beyond voluntary control. Relapse and remission are involved cycles of addiction, just like other chronic diseases. Without addiction treatment or participation in recovery this disease is progressive and will eventually result in premature death or disability, among many other unfortunate life circumstances.
An Intensive Outpatient Program also known as IOP is an outpatient solution that is typically 3 days – 5 days per week, usually 9 hours per week total. A clinical assessment determines the level of care that is needed for each individual. IOP may be needed as a step down from a higher level of care such as residential, php or detox. IOP may also be recommended if an individual is working and is only looking for a morning or nighttime outpatient solution to help steer individual in a better direction. Sometimes along with the individual the family may also become involved with the individuals IOP solution.
