Drug Rehab Treatment Classes

When you are enrolled in a residential treatment program for drug
addiction, you will usually attend classes and lectures at least once a day.
Usually they are interactive, and the lecturer will require the class to
participate with questions and comments. Most lecturers use a variety of
techniques and visual aids to keep the classes interesting.
During these classes, you will learn the latest information about drug
addiction and recovery. You will gain an understanding of how drugs react
with your brain chemicals, and how addiction occurs on the physical level.
You may have a class on the damaging effects of different drugs, and how
best to counteract this damage with healthy food, exercise, and appropriate
amounts of sleep.

Types of Treatment Programs:
Research studies on addiction treatment typically have classified programs
into several general types or modalities. Treatment approaches and
individual programs continue to evolve and diversify, and many programs
today do not fit neatly into traditional drug addiction treatment
Long-Term Residential Treatment:
Long-term residential treatment provides care 24 hours a day, generally in
non-hospital settings.

The best-known residential treatment model is the therapeutic community
(TC), with planned lengths of stay of between 6 and 12 months. TCs focus on
the "resocialization" of the individual and use the program’s entire
community—including other residents, staff, and the social context—as active
components of treatment. Addiction is viewed in the context of an
individual’s social and psychological deficits, and treatment focuses on
developing personal accountability and responsibility as well as socially
productive lives.
Short-Term Residential Treatment:
Short-term residential programs provide intensive but relatively brief
treatment based on a modified 12-step approach.

These programs were originally designed to treat alcohol problems, but
during the cocaine epidemic of the mid-1980s, many began to treat other
types of substance use disorders. The original residential treatment model
consisted of a 3- to 6-week hospital-based inpatient treatment phase
followed by extended outpatient therapy and participation in a self-help
group, such as AA.
Outpatient Treatment Programs:
Outpatient treatment varies in the types and intensity of services offered.
Such treatment costs less than residential or inpatient treatment and often is
more suitable for people with jobs or extensive social supports.

It should be noted, however, that low-intensity programs may offer little
more than drug education. Other outpatient models, such as intensive day
treatment, can be comparable to residential programs in services and
effectiveness, depending on the individual patient’s characteristics and
Individualized Drug Counseling:

Individualized drug counseling not only focuses on reducing or stopping
illicit drug or alcohol use; it also addresses related areas of impaired
functioning—such as employment status, illegal activity, and family/social
relations—as well as the content and structure of the patient’s recovery

program. Through its emphasis on short-term behavioral goals,
individualized counseling helps the patient develop coping strategies and
tools to abstain from drug use and maintain abstinence.
Group Counseling:
Many therapeutic settings use group therapy to capitalize on the social
reinforcement offered by peer discussion and to help promote drug-free
lifestyles. Research has shown that when group therapy either is offered in
conjunction with individualized drug counseling or is formatted to reflect the
principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy or contingency management,
positive outcomes are achieved. Currently, researchers are testing conditions
in which group therapy can be standardized and made more communityfriendly.
