What Substance Abuse Treatment is Right for You?

Are you thinking about getting help for yourself or for someone you love who is addicted to drugs? Choosing the right substance abuse treatment for yourself or for someone you love can take time but the end result is well worth the effort. Taking a step back and looking at yourself, your lifestyle, your individual circumstances and the history of your drug abuse can help you to make an informed and appropriate decision about your recovery.

If you need help determining what you should be on the lookout for when it comes to finding substance abuse treatment that will be most effective, consider the following information when making your decision:

  • Think about your current health and the drugs that you are using. If you take certain drugs you may be at an increased risk of infection, disease, respiratory illness or cardiac problems. It’s important to choose a substance abuse treatment program that will be able to handle these health issues if you suffer from them and can provide you with adequate medical treatment for your health conditions in addition to the treatment for addiction.
  • If you suffer from withdrawal symptoms when you quit using your drug of choice then you’ll need to consider this in your search for substance abuse treatment. Withdrawal symptoms are a common part of the substance abuse detoxification process and, if they are moderate to severe symptoms, it will be important to choose a substance abuse program that will provide adequate treatment, monitoring and care for these symptoms. This will ensure your safety and comfort as well as your continued sobriety.
  • Your lifestyle will also come into play when determining what type of substance abuse treatment program is going to be most suitable for you. If you are working or going to school, outpatient treatment may be a suitable option but if you are heavily addicted and have major withdrawal symptoms, inpatient or residential treatment may be the preferred method of care.
  • If you’ve been in treatment before, especially if you’ve been in treatment for the same condition in the past, you should probably seek a more invasive approach to ensure your successful recovery. If you completed a drug treatment program in the past and you are now about to begin treatment again, chances are you should pay closer attention to the type of treatment that you choose this time around to ensure that you have a longer lasting recovery. You may need a more invasive method of care or for some, outpatient treatment can provide a refreshing glimpse back into the reality of getting sober.
