Private Drug Treatment Methods

Whether you are researching drug addiction treatment for yourself or for a loved one, you’re going to want to gain a full understanding of your options.

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to overcoming addiction. Each person, situation and chemical dependency is different and no two journeys towards sobriety will be the same.

And because each person is different, the private drug treatment methods available should be too.

Today we are going to explain the different options available and where the right drug addiction treatment can take place for your unique situation.

Where can private treatment for drug addiction take place?

Inpatient rehabilitation is designed to offer structured treatment in a substance-free facility with around-the-clock care and support on offer. Inpatient rehab is the best option for those battling chronic addiction, but it is also an ideal option for people that suffer from mental or behavioural disorders.

There are many benefits of attending inpatient rehab including:

  • A higher success rate than outpatient treatment
  • 24 hour medical and emotional support
  • No distractions of everyday life allow full focus on recovery
  • Designed to treat the most serious addictions

Outpatient rehabilitation is another form of drug addiction treatment that can prove effective. Although outpatient rehab can offer many of the same types of treatment as inpatient rehab, it does come with its own pros and cons.

The top outpatient treatment concerns are:

  • Risk of encountering triggers to abuse
  • Lack of day-long support from medical staff
  • Family and friends not trained on how to deal with detox process
  • Lower success rate than inpatient rehab

Based on our own experiences and those of our clients, inpatient rehab is the most effective way to tackle addiction. Port of Call can put you in contact with a range of private drug treatment centres with immediate admission available, giving you the best chance of becoming sober.

Private Treatment for drug addiction: Your options

Port of Call has placed patients in a variety of inpatient rehab facilities, whether you or a loved one has an abusive relationship with prescription drugs, heroin, cocaine or cannabis.

There are a variety of private drug treatment methods available in rehab. If you’re unsure what happens in private drug treatment centres, you owe it to yourself to develop an understanding of the process and why it works. Here are the most powerful therapies for addiction recovery:

Cognitive behavioural therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy (also known as CBT) is based on the idea that your mindset, feelings and physical actions are linked. CBT suggests that negative thoughts can trap someone in a vicious cycle. By breaking down psychological issues into smaller parts, CBT aims to help deal with overwhelming feelings through changing negative patterns.

CBT helps patients to identify triggers that may cause them to turn to drugs and allows them to respond in an effective manner, without relapsing.

Medication-assisted treatment

As a means of managing opioid dependency, this form of drug addiction treatment uses medications like methadone and buprenorphine to lessen the powerful craving your body has developed to opioids. The combination of medication with counselling therapy teaches a recovering user how best to manage their triggers for relapse and, in doing so, promotes extended periods of sobriety.

Contingency Management

Using motivating incentives provides a reward for those in recovery to remain abstinent. Based on the long-standing principle that desired behaviours will reap benefits, CM is a form of private treatment for drug addiction that works because the belief is that abusing is heavily influenced by social and environmental factors. Contingency management or CM can effectively be used in conjunction with other treatments.

We hope this has provided you with a clearer understanding of the wide range of private drug treatment centres.
