The Importance of Specialized Therapies

When a patient leaves treatment, they often face an extraordinary amount of logistical challenges; it’s almost as though they’re starting a new life. These drastic changes can overwhelm anyone, particularly someone who may still be emotionally vulnerable. The more customized and targeted a patient’s rehab program is, the more equipped they will be to face the challenges particular to them in a post-treatment environment. This is why rehab should be tailored to each patient’s care needs rather than following a cookie-cutter formula that may not work for everyone. When patients are faced with unexpected challenges in the early parts of their sobriety, they are significantly more vulnerable to relapse. These specialized therapies help address as many issues as possible so they can thrive in recovery.

How Do I Know What Kind of Therapies I Need?

Your rehab program and therapy regimen should be designed by your treatment professional. This should be done immediately following an assessment of your physical health, your substance abuse history and the areas of your life that have been impacted by substance abuse. This evaluation will better inform your care provider of the help you need going forward. After the assessment, they will determine your care needs and act accordingly. It’s important to remember that not all treatment facilities offer every type of therapy; however, your treatment professional will determine which of your facility’s therapy programs best suit your clinical needs.

After treatment, patients often continue their specialized therapy in a setting closer to them. It’s common for patients to unlock strengths and confidence they never knew they had in these therapies, and to take their new interests with them well after they’ve completed their program.
