How Can You Stop Drug Addiction?

Using addictive substances—such as heroin, prescription opioids, cocaine, and meth—creates a physical dependency in the body that is incredibly difficult to overcome cold turkey. But with help from professional addiction treatment services, you can find a more comfortable way through withdrawal and establish a strong foundation for long-term sobriety. 

While there are many types of rehab programs to consider, many find the best results with those that offer in-patient services. Through this approach, you reside in a safe and comfortable environment that’s designed to support every aspect of a healthy recovery. These support resources should include a combination of addiction therapy services, counseling, mental wellness, physical fitness, nutrition, and addiction education resources. 

Which Treatment is Most Effective In Treating Addiction?

Every person experiences drug addiction differently, so there’s not always a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. In general, the most effective approach involves a personalized treatment program. Rehab specialists develop these individualized plans to specifically address a client’s unique addiction profile and recovery obstacles. These plans incorporate addiction therapy services—such as CBT, DBT, and ACT—as well as additional programs—including sessions, mindfulness and meditation, stress reduction training, relapse prevention, anger management, addiction education, and coping skills training.  

It’s also important to consider the model of treatment that alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers use. A model of treatment refers to the way the provider views addiction, which helps guide their approach to treatment methods. For example, the highly-effective Modified Minnesota Model of Treatment views alcoholism and addiction as a chronic no-fault disease that is best addressed with unconditional acceptance without judgment, complete abstinence, and treatment of both the mind and body. The model also relies heavily on family involvement, education within the community, group work, and a 12-Step philosophy to produce successful results.

Costa Rica Recovery uses a
Modified Minnesota Model of Treatment

We highly recommend patients stay as long as they possibly can. Studies conclude that those whose stay at least 90 days have a much better chance of long-term sobriety and freedom from addiction.

Early assumptions of this model are:

  • Alcoholism and Addiction exists
  • Alcoholism and Addiction is an illness
  • Alcoholism and Addiction is a no-fault illness
  • Alcoholism and Addiction is a multiphasic illness
  • Alcoholism and Addiction is chronic, primary illness
  • Initial motivation for treatment is unrelated to outcomes
  • Education about alcoholism and addiction must begin in the community.

Model Characteristics:

  • Integration of professional staff with trained recovering alcoholics/addicts
  • Focus on disease concept and link to 12-Step philosophy
  • Complete abstinence
  • Family Involvement
  • Patient and family education
  • Education about alcoholism and addiction must begin in the community.
