There is always the potential for relapse following any addiction treatment, which is why it is essential for addicts to choose treatment options that offer them a better chance at long-term recovery. The options typically associated with lower relapse rates that are available include:
- Residential rehab – a residential rehab program is a much more intensive treatment option, as recovery becomes the sole focus of the addict. In residential rehab addicts like onsite at the rehab facility, and have 24/7 support from medical and psychological professionals.
- Family treatment – involving family in the treatment process can help prepare individuals to receive support from their loved ones once they return home again after comprehensive treatment. Family members need to heal themselves in order to support someone in recovery, and they also need to learn how to do that effectively.
- Halfway houses – the transition from an institutionalized rehab setting to normal life can be hard for addicts, and this is a time when relapse becomes even more likely. A halfway house offers structure and supervision, plus 24/7 support from other residents and house staff.
Long-term treatment options greatly increase the likelihood of recovery from drug, alcohol, or behavioral addiction. Contact us for more information.
