Addiction Treatment Program

There are many different types of addiction treatment programs. Some programs require the client to live away and receive treatment for 6-12 months, other programs are 30 days in length. The type and severity of the addiction determine the treatment required. There are treatment programs for men, for women, for teens. There are LGBT programs and Christian programs. There are special addiction treatment programs for healthcare professionals as well. The treatment program is generally related to the addiction treatment center’s philosophy and clinical team. If a client suffers from a mental health disorder and a drug addiction, that person should go to a program that can address both issues. Recovery is based upon the client’s ability to address all the underlying factors that led to the addictive behavior. Appropriate diagnosis is critical to recovery.
