When it comes to addiction, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. This is because substance abuse affects individuals differently depending on their health, experiences, behavior, emotional make-up and even the type and amount of substance they’ve used. Even individuals who abuse the same substance may have different reactions and experiences. That’s why at Robert Alexander Center for Treatment we focus on using individualized treatment plans to meet our client’s unique recovery needs.

What is a Treatment Plan?

An addiction treatment plan can be viewed as a detailed roadmap to guide those struggling with addiction through the recovery process. This plan is developed by a team of healthcare professionals and addiction specialists working closely in conjunction with the individual to determine their needs and then create a plan that suits their situation.

A typical personalized treatment plan will include an outline of different treatment strategies including detox, medication, counseling and therapy, relapse prevention and an aftercare plan. It will also include an assessment of the client’s addiction and their mental and emotional health as well as clear and measurable goals to work towards during treatment. Additionally, the plan should allow for monitoring and adjustments as the individual progresses through treatment.

Benefits of Personalized Treatment Plans

Treatment plans that are tailored to an individual’s unique recovery needs are more effective in helping them attain long-term recovery and offer the following benefits:

  • Helping individuals to understand themselves. Personalized treatment can help individuals uncover the underlying causes of their addiction, identify their triggers, discern unhealthy relationships and develop coping skills necessary to support recovery.
  • Taking age-specific needs into consideration. Teens, young adults, and older adults are all at different stages of life and their treatment should reflect this. Individualized treatment plans allow for age-specific needs to be taken into consideration.
  • Helping to manage co-occurring disorders. Having a personalized plan for treatment makes it easy to apply an integrated approach to treatment for those dealing with co-occurring disorders. They can simultaneously receive treatment for both their mental health condition and substance use disorder, increasing their chances of recovery.
  • Helping individuals avoid relapse. Helping those battling addiction to better understand themselves and what they should and shouldn’t do when it comes to triggers and stressors puts them in a better position to avoid relapse.
  • Assisting in medical monitoring. Individualized treatment plans help those who are on medication for withdrawal or mental health symptoms to receive the right dosage and keep track of their progress.
