Can addiction be treated successfully?
Addiction is a treatable disorder. Research on the science of addiction and the treatment of substance use disorders has led to the development of research-based methods that help people to stop using drugs and resume productive lives.
TCI recovery team is great at what they do best, they are trained addiction treatment officers that go about their practice with passion consistent precision. They help people to counteract addiction's disruptive effects on their brain and behavior and regain control of their lives.
They work on the underlying principle that like many chronic diseases such as heart disease or asthma, the cure for addiction is best achieved through its successful management.
TCI staff knows through experience that the chronic nature of addiction means that for some people relapse, or a return to drug use after an attempt to stop, can be part of the process. they are well informed of newer treatments designed to help with relapse prevention.
Relapse rates for drug use are similar to rates for other chronic medical illnesses. If people stop following their medical treatment plan, they are likely to relapse.
Hence TCI staff always start treatment with a plan, with each case getting a detailed workover, a specific plan of action to generate the best treatment success rate, and avoiding failure.
If you ask them if a person in post-treatment relapses, does it mean that the treatment has failed, they are straight forward to say that it does not always mean so because treatment of addiction like any chronic ailment involves changing deeply rooted behaviors and that relapse does not mean treatment has failed. They say the treatment is not giving up when you do not get the result you want, it means that treatment should continue with a new or modified approach. Pathways to recovery will somehow differ from each and every other caseload. TCI recovery specialists are process-driven not to easily give up.
TCI case managers design a treatment program that does not only focus on
1. (First month of Stay) Withdrawal Phase Treatment which comes on the early phase of healing, when patients first stop using drugs where they experience various physical and emotional symptoms, including restlessness or sleeplessness, as well as depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions, nor
2. (Second up to eight months) The longer Stay In Phase wherein the focus is on counseling and psychotherapies. These treatments act slowly to help prevent drug cravings and have a calming effect on the body systems. There is a phase of cognitive behavior modification. The third is the most important aspect of recovery
3. Preventing Relapse, aftercare situation is the most dangerous ( To Be Continued)
