When you have a daughter who has not been able to maintain sobriety after rehab, it can be difficult to maintain hope for her ultimate recovery. But when drug treatment programs have failed her, it may be time to reevaluate the type of program she has entered in the past. She may have simply been in the wrong program for her unique needs.
Drug Treatment Programs Designed to Help Those with More Serious Needs
Residential treatment programs are designed to help patients with serious addiction overcome their substance abuse for the long term. Your daughter may have been in outpatient, intensive outpatient or even residential treatment in the past. But if she hasn’t been able to achieve a successful recovery, she probably hasn’t been in a program that was suited to her individualized treatment needs.
Residential treatment involves patients with more serious addiction living at the treatment facility. By doing so, these patients gain more extensive support from staff with virtually around-the-clock availability by the treatment team. Only in a residential setting can patients like your daughter be fully immersed in rehabilitation.
Environmental factors can be the downfall of many patients who simply aren’t ready for real-world challenges in early sobriety. This is often the case for patients who started their addiction at a young age, those with lengthy drug histories, and those with too many triggers, temptations and enablers in their lives. Within residential rehab, patients can learn how to overcome their environment and remain drug free before being presented with daily challenges.
How Residential Drug Treatment Programs Work
Residential drug treatment programs are varied both in duration and how they treat patients. Some offer short stays of several weeks, then supplement those stays through intensive outpatient or outpatient programs while patients reside at home. Within a residential program, it’s critical that your daughter’s needs are met through an individualized treatment plan.
A dual-diagnosis drug treatment program may be exactly what your daughter has needed, but failed to receive. If your daughter has a co-occurring condition, such as depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder or other mental illness, addiction can’t be successfully treated without also addressing that second disorder.
Addiction and mental illness can feed each other, creating a cycle that’s difficult to break without both issues being addressed. A dual-diagnosis program breaks the cycle through medical treatment of the co-occurring disorder, which makes it more likely for recovery to endure.
