There are a lot of challenges facing those who are struggling with an addiction and those who want to help those individuals to recover. “The current addiction treatment system is failing us,” as evidenced by bleak statistics, but this doesn’t mean that there isn’t any reason for hope.
The Clear Benefits of Unique Addiction Treatment
Would you be surprised to hear that it’s considered a modern and novel concept to individualize treatment for addiction and mental illness? It’s true! Addiction treatment that focuses “on personal strengths, weakness, goals and flexibility” can be hard to find, as many systems will employ a one-size-fits-all format.
Establishing a treatment that is suited to an individual’s needs allows for the development of independence, internal strength, and much more. It also allows you to sort through some of the pre-existing conditions or situations that might have lead to the addiction in the first place before actual recovery is undertaken.
Traditional methods exist for a reason, but this format – often referred to as “self-direction” within the field – can be an enormously effective method of addiction treatment for a lot of people. It gives you a large role within your own recovery, avoiding the feeling of hopelessness that could accompany a more standardized plan that just happens to you, and not with you as an active participant.
Engaging in treatment that allows you to play a real part within your own recovery keeps you better-prepared for the journey ahead than if you were less involved in the process.
