Importance of Matching Patients with Treatment Programs for Effective Long-Term Care

 treatment program for addiction

Getting treatment for addiction can save your life!

Long ago, it was thought that there actually was a one-size-fits-all method of treatment for addiction that would work for everyone but this could not be more wrong. In fact, in today’s treatment field, professionals know that matching patients with treatment programs that will meet their unique and very individual needs is both highly important and highly effective.

One study found that those who receive specialized treatment for addiction that is matched to their needs are more likely to stay in treatment longer, they are more likely to complete treatment and they typically have better post treatment outcomes than those who are not matched to a specific treatment program. So what does it mean to be matched to a program?

There are many different types of treatment programs available for those who are addicted to drugs or alcohol. Some programs are standard and provide only standardized treatment which is typically not the most effective and other programs utilize combined treatment strategies that are matched to the individual to help him or her gain the most out of treatment. Matched programs offer patients:

  • individualized treatment plans that focus on each patient directly
  • treatment that is adjusted along the way to provide the greatest benefit to the patient
  • unique counseling & therapy that focuses on each patient’s problems directly
  • unsurpassed care that takes standard treatment to the extremes and provides additional support, medical care and individually tailored treatment

Matched treatment seems to be very effective for those who require treatment for a range of addictions. In fact, patients who receive matched treatment are 30% more likely to finish treatment and to stay sober long term. While it may not be practical for all treatment centers to match clinical practice to their patients, many have found that offering individually tailored treatment increases effectiveness, reduces relapse rates and improves overall satisfaction on a higher level.

We can help you find a treatment center that will provide specially tailored treatment that will aid in your recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. Call 1-888-885-4616 to speak with a treatment professional today.
