Quality rehab facilities understand that addiction treatment programs must have a strong client focus. They can’t be about what’s most comfortable for the staff members. Instead, the programs must meet the needs of residents as they occur. At Melrose Recovery Group, we strongly believe in providing comprehensive addiction treatment programs.
Gender-Specific Addiction Treatment Programs
Addiction is a disease. It doesn’t discriminate between genders. Men and women both fall victim to chemical dependencies. As a result, both need treatment.
Some facilities try to make it work by offering a separate rehab for men and women. Single-sex centers’ programs sound good on paper, but they don’t work in the real world. Consider that men and women still have to learn how to cope with one another after treatment. Without exposure to coping mechanisms and opportunities for trying them out, you miss a chunk of relapse prevention strategy development.
A better way of handling the innate gender differences is the presentation of customized addiction treatment programs. Some sessions provide separate rehab for women and men. That said, there are also opportunities for social mingling afterward in a safe environment. It’s fair to say that this treatment model provides the best of both worlds at the same facility.
Seamless Transition from Detox to Rehab
Another sticking point is the transition from detoxification to rehab. Detox helps you to overcome a physiological dependence problem. It helps your body to regain equilibrium. When your body no longer is convinced that it needs a drug just to survive, you’re ready to move on to rehab.
However, far too often, this is the juncture where individuals quit. Program participants may mistakenly believe that they don’t need rehab. The institutional lag time between discharge and admittance between facilities who don’t offer both programs creates relapse opportunities.
Client-focused addiction treatment programs allow for a seamless transition. You graduate from the detox portion of the program and move to the rehab phase immediately. Detox and rehab both take place in a residential treatment setting, which cuts down on inconvenience for the client.
Meaningful Rehab Programs Support Recovery
The majority of detox programs allow for tapering, medical monitoring, and pharmacological support. However, rehab programs show more differentiation. The trick here is to find a venue that provides a broad range of modalities. Since everyone has different recovery needs, the volume of available treatments ensures you find what you need.
Examples of treatment options at Melrose Recovery Group include:
- Psychotherapy in one-on-one sessions that creates a safe environment for digging deep and uncovering dysfunction
- Group therapy, which invites peer education, joint learning, and positive feedback
- Family therapy to help residents deal with negative patterns in close relationships and familial circumstances
- Young adult programs that focus intently on the needs of a demographic that most other facilities ignore
- 12 Step program availability, which encourages positive peer engagement, self-esteem building, and relapse prevention
- Aftercare planning, which works with your circumstances to provide you the best possible outcome and continuation of care
