Albion, MI (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
Freedom Treatment Center knows how important a background history can be for any drug addiction treatment plan, which is why the center is compiling a decade’s worth of drug addiction data into a single, easy-to-use format. The overall goal of the study is not only to review what treatment methods have worked in the past, but to be able to employ the most effective methods going forward. The report also helps treatment professionals recognize meaningful regional trends, types of drugs abused and treatment methods that have been most effective for long-term recovery.
Study information came from a survey of nearly 1,000 individuals recovering from drug addiction, inclusive of the drugs to which they were addicted, the treatment plans they followed, and data from Freedom Drug Rehab’s records of aftercare follow-ups. The comprehensive study of results is categorized by type of addiction, state and other factors.
“We are really excited about this study, as it will give us great insight into addiction trends and treatment outcomes across a huge section of the population,” said Nick Thiel, Chief Operations Officer of Michigan's Freedom Treatment Center.
The state-by-state survey has the potential to provide valuable insight to addiction treatment professionals who can use the information to most effectively treat their patients. Due to the multiple categories, addiction specialists will be able to review addiction trends in any given region, the types of treatments that have been most effective, and the types of drugs that have resulted in the highest numbers of addiction in any given area.
“Our facility is not the only center and Michigan not the only state that can benefit greatly from this comprehensive study,” said Freedom Treatment Center Senior Director Dominick Assante. “We are hoping this data can help many centers across the nation implement the most effective programs to help patients in their areas obtain and sustain successful, drug-free lives.”
Freedom Drug Rehab plans to announce and summarize survey results, making them readily available to treatment facilities, addiction professionals, program directors and individuals upon request.
Located in a semi-residential pocket of Southern Michigan, Freedom Treatment Center provides the soothing and safe environment and assistance so vital for helping people overcome drug and alcohol addiction. Treatment begins with a natural detoxification and continues with counseling, education and lifestyle changes that help ensure an ongoing and successful recovery.
