- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

The idea that people chose to use drugs because of moral failings, has maintained its victims scorned, punished and discriminated by society. The stigmatization and ignorance that surrounds substance abuse and mental illness, have been extraordinarily harmful and often lethal to its victims. To effectively treat someone, We need to see the whole individual in front of us and not just the moment they are in.
