Addiction Treatment for a New Year and a New Life

Addiction Treatment for a New Year and a New Life

Treatment is the first step to a new life

January is often a time when New Year’s resolutions come into play. Some individuals may resolve to lose weight and achieve financial stability while others choose this time to become sober. Treatment whether inpatient or outpatient is a great opportunity for addicts to help place them on the right path for sobriety.

How Does Treatment Contribute to a New Life?

Treatment is a great start for any addict looking to start a new life. Included in the following are some examples of how treatment can contribute to a new and better quality of life:

  • Help with withdrawal
  • Establish goals
  • Prevention and relapse tools

The withdrawal stage is often the most difficult for addicts to overcome due to the pain they experience during this stage. This pain often overtakes their desires for sobriety and causes them to relapse to ease the pain. Treatment helps addicts overcome this obstacle by giving them the opportunity to think clearly without the interference of drugs. Treatment helps addicts establish goals and gives them a future to look forward to. Before treatment is completed addicts are taught prevention tools to help them avoid a relapse. With pain management, new goals, and prevention tools addicts are able to start a new life without addiction.

How to Find the Right Treatment

Although each treatment facility or program has the same goal of sobriety, their approaches or techniques may differ from each other. Included in the following are some examples of what to ask each treatment facility before fully committing to their program:

  • What is your approach to treatment?
  • Do you refer me to an aftercare program?
  • Is my insurance in your network?

Due to each facility’s unique approach to tackling and conquering addiction, it is important to find out if their approach is right for you. Some programs may offer a more physical form of treatment while others offer a more spiritual approach. Aftercare treatment can be just as beneficial as inpatient treatment. Ask if the facility can refer you or if they can give you materials to help once inpatient treatment is complete. Insurance companies have strict policies and offer discounts for treatment within their network. If you have insurance make sure the facility is in network and if you do not have insurance see if the facility has a payment plan for once treatment is completed.
