Certified Addiction Treatment

Certified Addiction Treatment

Addiction is a mental health issue, and therefore, it requires a professional approach to treating it. Drug addiction affects people of all different social classes and ages. Rehab facilities have qualified clinicians and staff that can guide patients through treatment for drug and alcohol abuse and addiction in the most effective way known, through certified addiction treatment programs.

Why is it Important to Only get Certified Addiction Treatment?

If a person was suffering from diabetes and received help from someone who was not entirely aware of the proper methods for treating the condition, then the success of their diabetes treatment would be unreliable. Similarly, if a person is suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction and accepts help for their problem outside of certified treatment, the successful outcome of their recovery would be uncertain.

As an example, home detox programs that promise to end addiction are often not effective. It is important to look for a certified addiction treatment center that can provide medical detox and comprehensive rehab programs, along with around-the-clock care and a drug-free environment. With ample support from treatment staff, recovering addicts will be able to more successfully recover from addiction than through a non-certified program or center. The cost may be cheaper with a non-certified center or program, but the effectiveness is often significantly inferior.

What are Some of the Classification Certifications or Specialties for Addiction Professionals?

 There is a variety of classifications for all of the different aspects of the addiction professional field. The following are some of the certifications that the staff of a certified rehab center have:

  • Behavioral healthcare– Returning a person who is suffering from a mental disorder such as addiction, to a mental state of well-being, is the goal of a behavioral healthcare professional (methods such as cognitive-behavioral therapy).
  • Nursing – Qualified nurses aid with various tasks in a rehab facility, including the proper handling of medical supplies, lab work and basic health care for patients going through detox.
  • Trauma counseling – When it is uncovered that a patient is also suffering from trauma, such as PTSD along with a drug addiction, a trauma counselor is qualified to help them through the severe emotional problems that will likely arise.
  • Religious counseling – Programs such as the 12-step program that are religion-based, are now being adapted for non-religious people. It is still a way in which people can be helped through a drug problem.
  • Expressive art therapy – These certified professionals help patients by allowing them to express themselves through various forms of art. The focus is on the creation, rather than the final product, as a way to deal with complex emotions in order to heal.

 Getting the best help possible through a fully certified addiction treatment center is always advised for an addiction to avoid relapse and get a person back to a normal, functioning state of mind.
