Substance abuse knows no boundaries. Those suffering from substance use disorders, such as addiction, come from a wide range of backgrounds with no one case looking the same. There is extreme diversity among those who suffer from substance use disorders and, because of this factor alone, there is no “one size fits all” for addiction treatment. Having a unique care plan that is individualized to fit your needs and goals is essential to achieving and sustaining a lasting recovery.
Individualized Care – Uniquely You
Think about the unique set of circumstances that have led you to seek treatment for your substance use. You may consider a wide range of factors such as:
- The substance or combination of substances you are seeking treatment from
- How long you have been using substances for
- Your responsibilities (work, school, family life, etc.)
- Your age
- Your gender
- Your personal needs
- Co-occurring mental health disorders
As you can see, these types of attributes can greatly differ from one person to the next. Your unique path is more important than ever when it comes to seeking and receiving treatment for substance use. Individualized treatment takes all of these factors into account and creates a treatment plan that caters to your unique set of needs.
Unique Treatment for a Multitude of Different Substances
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health, of the 59.3 million people aged 12 or older who reported using illicit substances in the year 2020, 14.5% reported having a substance use disorder. This percentage included:
- 28.3 million people who reported an alcohol use disorder
- 18.4 million people with an illicit drug use disorder
- 6.5 million people with both alcohol use disorder and an illicit drug use disorder
These numbers were broken down even further among the different types of substances used. They show that there are so many different substances alone that are used by the unique individuals who seek treatment.
Each substance comes along with its path and plan for treatment, and one of the reasons why individualized care is so important is because of the simple fact that different substances need to be treated differently. Oftentimes, certain medications can be used to help manage withdrawal symptoms, manage mental health symptoms, and prevent relapse.
Unique External Circumstances
Just as you have your unique reason and substance(s) for which you are seeking addiction rehab, you also have life circumstances that have caused you to engage in repeated substance use.
What does your daily life look like? Maybe you have a full-time job that is necessary to support your family. Perhaps you are the primary caretaker for an elderly parent or relative, or maybe your spiritual or religious background requires you to make use of treatment in your own, unique way. You might still be in school, and unable to take the kind of time off needed for an inpatient program, or your work does not afford you any kind of time relief.
It is important to consider all personal factors that may impact your treatment and recovery journey as you seek out a treatment facility for addiction. An extended care program like the one at Lighthouse Recovery Texas will allow you to continue your everyday responsibilities as you participate in treatment.
