Addiction is a type of chronic disease where you can’t take a “one size fits all” approach to treatment. It simply doesn’t work for people who need help to get clean and sober.
If this were the type of illness where a doctor could take a blood sample or conduct some other type of standardized test to diagnose a patient and then prescribe a medication as part of the course of treatment, which would include follow-up tests to determine whether the medication was working, then a conventional approach could be successful.
However, with addiction, a personalized substance abuse treatment is the way to give addicts the greatest chance to overcome their unique underlying issues and achieve the goal of long-term sobriety.
Why Personalized Treatment Is The Best Approach For Addiction
At The Dunes East Hampton, we realize that each client we treat has a unique background (even if two people were raised in the same household, each person would have different perspectives on their own childhood). In order to help an individual deal with the issues around his or her addiction appropriately, we conduct a detailed assessment to determine their background as well as their needs and goals.
Based on the results of the assessment, we determine whether our client is struggling with drug abuse, alcoholism, a combination of the two, or is living with a mental health issue and an addiction. When a person has a substance abuse issue and a mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), it is referred to as a co-occurring disorder and requires treatment for both issues at the same time.
Prescription drug abuse is another form of addiction we treat. Patients who have been instructed to take medications for pain relief or other conditions regularly may become addicted to the prescription(s). Recovery to prescription drug addiction is one area we specialize in.
In personalized treatment, our focus is helping clients understand and change their behaviors, nutritional habits as well as teaching real-life relapse prevention tools.
