The Different Treatment Pathways for Addiction

Home » Blog » The Different Treatment Pathways for Addiction

Choosing and assessing the best treatment program for you can be difficult and confusing. Given there is no “one-size-fits-all”-approach to recovery, we have compiled a list of the most critical, evidence-based treatment methods for you.

The first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem with addiction. You may be at a crossroads after that, with a variety of options for treatment programs and methods. Road signs may refer to “inpatient care”, “outpatient services”, “Emotional regulation”, “SMART Recovery”, or abbreviations like “DBT”, ACT”, or “MAT”.

Where to go, what to choose? The best treatment program for you will depend on several factors, including your age, gender, the substance that you abuse, your social support, and even your health history. Don’t give up. Keep reading, and don’t go back.

Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment Program?

First, you need to decide where the treatment will take place. In general, treatment programs for substance abuse disorder (SUD), are divided into two groups that differ in intensity. These are “inpatient”, “residential”, and “outpatient”.

  • Inpatient Drug Treatment

You will be living at a facility for addiction treatment that provides 24-hour medical care and support. The facility can provide emotional and psychological support during critical times of your stay. Inpatient treatment is a good option if you are undergoing medical detoxification and require close clinical supervision in a supportive and supervised environment.

Inpatient treatment is often beneficial for people whose daily lives, work environment, or social environment are too triggering and offer drug- and alcohol-using opportunities. Inpatient treatment removes these triggers and restricts access to alcohol or drugs. Inpatient treatment can be compared to “a safe bubble”, and it may be difficult to return to your daily life as you are still in the same environment. It may be best to move to a sober environment for a while before slowly resuming daily activities.

  • Outpatient Treatment Program

Outpatient treatment, unlike inpatient care, is often available near your home and can be done at a clinic or treatment center run by a psychiatrist, psychologist or psychotherapist. Sessions are usually scheduled every week or maybe even fortnightly. This is a good setting for people who are able to manage their daily lives and responsibilities.

You can live in your home or another safe place while being active with your family, professional, and personal responsibilities. Outpatient programs are usually used to treat addictions which don’t need round-the clock supervision. You regularly visit the treatment center of choice for medical, psychiatric, and/or psychotherapy services.

  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

IOP is often recommended to those with more severe addiction problems who need more intensive treatment but do not want to enter inpatient care. IOP can offer similar treatment to an inpatient setting, but the frequency and number of sessions vary greatly. Others may have sessions that last two to three hour three times a week, while others offer multiple sessions daily.

Those who have tried low-frequency treatment but haven’t managed their SUD successfully can consider intensive outpatient therapy. IOP offers a higher level of supervision that may assist in staying sober or controlling alcohol or drug use. It is important to live in a supportive environment for both regular outpatient and intensive outpatient treatments.

Although the settings described differ in intensity, living conditions, and cost, they all use evidence-based treatments that have been evaluated scientifically and proven to work.

Treatment Methods

Each of these evidence-based recovery practices has a unique focus. Hathaway Recovery is one of many treatment centers that may combine elements from several practices in order to meet your specific needs.

  • ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy).

ACT encourages you to embrace and accept your emotions, rather than deny and struggle with them. This will help you move forward and make the necessary changes in your life.

  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Treatment)

CBT is an example of psychotherapy that helps identify and modify negative thinking patterns that lead to emotional distress and unhelpful behavior. By changing your thinking patterns, you can improve your coping abilities.

  • DBT (Dialectic Behavioural Treatment)

DBT is based on CBT and focuses on two opposites, 1) accepting your experience and 2) working to change negative behaviours.

  • EFT (Emotion Focused therapy)

EFT views our emotions as guides to our decisions and choices. It is therefore harmful to be unaware of emotions or to avoid them. Our clients learn how to lead healthy lives by using EFT.

  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing)

EMDR, or eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), is a psychotherapeutic technique that aims to alleviate distressing memories as well as traumatic experiences.

  • IT (Interpersonal therapy)

This evidence-based, time-limited approach targets mood disorders. It also aims to improve interpersonal relationships and social functioning to reduce your emotional distress.

  • MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment)

The use of medication in conjunction with counseling and behavioral therapies is known as Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). This combination offers a comprehensive addiction treatment. The MAT program is primarily used to treat opioid addiction, such as heroin or substances that contain opiates. The medication is designed to normalize the brain chemistry body functions and block the euphoric effect of the substances. It also helps relieve cravings.

  • MI & MET (Motivational Enhancement Therapy & Motivational Interviewing)

MI is a method of interpersonal communication that uses open-ended questions, as well as other counselling techniques, to encourage behaviour change through a stronger personal motivation. The MET is a combination between assessments, goal-setting and MI. It aims to help you move from ambivalence about your recovery to a positive attitude.

  • PMR (Progressive muscle relaxation)

PMR is a simple technique that involves tensing one muscle at a time and then relaxing it. It has been shown to reduce anxiety, stress and insomnia.

  • rTMS is a form of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation.

rTMS is a non-invasive, painless treatment that uses magnetic pulses. It stimulates the part of your brain that controls mood. This helps reduce the symptoms of depression.

  • First I’ll start by saying that, this facility is absolutely beautiful! A couple years ago my husband Tony attended Hathaway Recovery in Claremont Ca. While Tony was in residential he received every care needed for a successful recovery. Also, he was able to enjoy the home gym at the beautiful Hathaway home, it’s basketball court, pool and etc. which made his stay even more pleasant. I am forever grateful for the man Tony has become ever since his completion. He has two years clean under his belt and many more to come because of the amazing facility. Thanks again Hathaway Recovery and Staff, Keep Continuing Changing Lives, God Bless Diane and Tony

  • I came to Hathaway Recovery on court orders stemming from charges due to not taking medications for my mental health. I was fearful of what my future held and what that would look like. I have never been to a dual diagnosis treatment program before, and I didn’t know what to expect. I really didn’t think I had a substance abuse problem but after about 3-4 weeks of group therapy and the counselors here at this facility, I finally realized substance abuse influenced me to not be able to take care of my mental health. With the help of Hathaway Recovery’s team, I was able to build a strong foundation for my recovery that is vital to me and my family. The clinical staff, therapist, case managers, and counselors included, were honest, caring, and really helped me gain the knowledge I needed to build this recovery program and lifestyle. I am forever grateful for the treatment at Hathaway Recovery.

  • My brother has been addicted for years. All our family gave up on him. Recently, he completed an inpatient residential program at Hathaway Recovery. This place is blessed and so helpful. It’s very luxurious, you feel like you are on vacation at a beautiful resort. Hathaway Recovery staff is very helpful, understanding and supportive. They all helped him to recover and to become a human again and enjoy his life. This place also supports family members and teaches them how to deal with aftercare to prevent relapse. Hathaway Recovery is the place for those who are struggling with addiction. Thank you for everything!

  • As a Trauma Informed Therapist I was contracted by Dina , the Owner to provide additional Trauma Informed Counseling. She indicated that she was seeking additional clinical services because her client population were enthusiastic about their recovery and she wanted to provide quality care. Working with Hathaway has been magical. This program does not separate addiction and mental health trauma into separate treatments, This program blends together the understanding that addicts have childhood trauma and have habitually used drugs or alcohol to dull their inner pain., Hathaway Recovery provides highly individual services for each client, including bilingual counseling. This is a program that I am proud to be a part of. Susan Pennington, LCSW – Trauma Informed Counseling Services.

  • Hathaway Recovery Center is the real deal. They helped me find myself when I was completely lost. After I lost the mother of my child due to a tragic accident. The therapists and counselors truly cared. We made a relationship with each other that was unbreakable. The other clients were awesome roommates and true to me. The house managers were great and the living situations were awesome. If I ever even think about slipping up I’ll be returning. Today I have over one year clean.
