Perhaps one of the more common objections or reservations that a client may feel towards in-patient treatment in a drug recovery center is the perceived isolation during treatment. There are definite advantages to temporarily transferring to a safe and controlled environment that can increase chances of recovery.
For example, most of the triggers or complicating factors of a person’s addiction are likely found in their home or social environment. But that is not to say that all the other aspects of everyday life can have a negative impact or will be obstacles to rehabilitation. In fact, family involvement can be a crucial part of a holistic approach.
The best drug rehabs take this necessary balance into account and offer individualized treatment. Each client is a unique case with his or her own specific set of circumstances. For one, a short term therapy might be enough, but for another a lengthier treatment might be necessary.
Clarity Way employs a holistic approach that doesn’t cut-off clients from everyday life. There are options for family visits and, at certain points along the rehabilitation program, family members may even play a critical and active role in their loved one’s therapy.
Another flexibility offered is the option to bring items from home which can ease the process of adjustment. The client can also choose whether it is more beneficial to undergo one-on-one or large group sessions.
These accommodations are an integral part of a strategy for rehabilitation that doesn’t just treat the drug or alcohol addiction, but rather looks at the totality of the afflicted person’s experiences. A too-narrow focus on the disorder will not be enough to uncover the underlying causes of the substance abuse. Then there is also the importance of developing and practicing the life skills that will help the client return to his or her regular life, deal with the existing challenges, and keep walking straight along the path of lifelong recovery.
