Different Types Of Treatment in Lewiston, ID.

As you can imagine, not every drug and alcohol rehab program in Lewiston is the same. In fact, each of the rehabs you come across will have its own unique idea as to what constitutes excellent treatment.

In the same way, the tools applied at a rehab will mostly depend on the original philosophy the center is founded upon. These protocols, however, are not mutually exclusive. For example, you might see religious-based drug and alcohol rehabs that also use evidence-based therapies.

In most situations, you may find that each substance abuse treatment facility emphasizes a specific approach. This is how most of these facilities are classified. That said, the most common types of drug and alcohol rehab centers include:

1. Evidence-Based Facilities

Evidence-based alcohol and drug rehab centers most always construct their program on the science of addiction recovery. And because of this, they will provide care that is mostly focused on the mental and emotional as well as ancillary therapies that are based on proven scientific research from proven results and case studies.

At these programs, the recovery protocols applied tend to change on a regular basis depending on the actual results from the most recent findings in science and research.

2. Religious-Based Facilities

Faith-based drug and alcohol rehab centers, on the other hand, are focused on the religious and spiritual aspects of rehab. As a result, most of them rely on the twelve-step philosophies combined with religious ritual - such as prayers and meditation.

The underlying thought in most of these facilities is that sobriety comes from the Lord. In the United States of America - a chiefly Christian area - most spiritually-based rehabs are Christian. On the other hand, there are some alcohol and drug rehab programs dedicated to providing healing and relief for recovering addicts from other faiths.

For the most case, you will find that these type of treatment facilities are paid for by a specific religious group - as an example, the Salvation Army has treatment programs. That being said, most spiritually-based facilities also provide philosophies based on abstinence.

3. 12-step Based Facilities

Most of these programs base their recovery protocols and options on the 12-step programs as well as on the information provided by AA and its various offshoots.

As a result, most of these rehabs will require that you participate in meetings, group work, and regular meetings with your sponsor. During this time, you will regularly work on the steps that will empower you to face your addiction from the 12-step perspective.

Some of the facilities in Lewiston that are based on the 12-steps may also offer other treatment options - such as individual therapy.

4. Pharmacotherapy-Based Centers

Medicine-based centers look at addiction disorders as conditions that should be fixed medically - in a similar was you would deal with other diseases like diabetes.

To this end, they will often write a prescription for such medications as methadone or Suboxone to manage an addiction.

These kinds of addiction treatment centers are, however, sometimes thought of as harm-reducing because they might pass on your addiction from one substance to a different drug. As an example, the methadone may replace opoids.

However, there are meds that a proven track record of deterring active alcohol abuse. For instance, Antabuse will make an alcoholic ill whenever they take alcohol. As a result, this type of treatment is useful at handling addiction and reducing harm.

5. Other Programs

Some alcohol and drug rehab centers do not fit into any of the categories we have discussed above. These rehabs offer cures that are not proven and may be experimental.

Instead, these facilities say that they have worked out unique ways of dealing with addiction and substance use disorders. However, they are open to doubt because they will probably not have proof of success or be able to provide evidence about their theories.

6. Harm-Reduction Based Programs

These are alcohol and drug treatment programs that hold the belief that people suffering from addiction and a variety of substance use disorders are not completely capable of abstinence or that they do not want to stop using drugs and alcohol entirely.

These drug and alcohol rehab facilities, instead, work on the belief that addicted individuals can use less of the substance in question. Based on this belief, they argue that it is alright to take a glass of wine or so during lunch or dinner and will teach the patients how to do this with success. In the process, you may learn how to keep a lid on your substance abuse problem while still making allowances for some substance use.

Most harm-reduction alcohol and drug rehabs are found outside the reaches of common addiction treatment facilities. A good example is a needle exchange plan.

The intention behind these programs is that not every addict is prepared for or wants guidance. Therefore, they are aimed at attempting to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases such as hepatitis and HIV by providing IV drug users with clean needles free of charge. In doing so, they reduce the risk of disease transmittal arising from drug abuse, although addicted people continue using as they did before the intervention.
