Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
A Forever Recovery, a leading addiction treatment center that has pioneered a moral reasoning approach to recovery that empowers each individual client to access the spiritual, cognitive, and fellowship support that they need, has published a new blog that focuses on the best Michigan addiction treatment for drugs and alcohol.
"Although each individual is unique and requires a personalized recovery plan, Michigan has a wide range of professional and proven treatment options available," commented Per Wickstrom, A Forever Recovery’s CEO. "By recognizing the best treatment for drugs or alcohol, it’s possible for individuals to rebuild a healthy, balanced and drug-free lifestyle."
The treatment options highlighted in the new blog post include:
- Cognitive behavior therapy, which focuses on changing how individuals react to certain thoughts – or "triggers" -- that directly or indirectly contribute to their addiction. While this approach can work extremely well when individuals use drugs to relieve stress, cope with emotional pain, or in response to certain stimulus, it’s often not the right treatment when the primary cause of addiction is related to physical dependence.
- Medication treatment, which is typically a short-term approach that used in the detoxification process, and is gradually replaced by non-medical treatments when deemed safe to do so (i.e. when symptoms of withdrawal have abated). Medication treatment can also help regulate and improve brain functioning, which may have diminished as a result of alcohol and drug abuse – particularly when it involves opiates.
- Counseling, which be involve one-on-one support, group support, or a combination of both. Generally, counseling is used to help identify and address the underlying causes of addiction, and enable lifestyle changes that reduce the likelihood of a relapse later on. Counseling can also be extremely beneficial in helping individuals deal with issues that have arisen as a result of their addiction, such as problems with forging strong relationships, problems with making and keeping commitments, and so on.
- Holistic treatments, which can include alternative medicine, herbals, art therapy, massage therapy, music therapy, martial arts, and other methods that can ultimately help individuals improve every area of their life.
"Regardless of the treatment – or, more often, treatments – that an individual needs in order to overcome addiction, the most important thing to remember is that their program must be personalized," added Per Wickstrom. "Recovery chances improve dramatically when the treatment program includes personalized care, and adjusts the program to fit the needs of the individual."
