Drug and alcohol addiction is not a one-size-fits-all disease, so why do the majority of addiction treatment programs treat it that way?
Addiction is as individual as a person’s thumbprint, with multitudes of causes and risk factors too vast to compartmentalize. Trying to pigeonhole an addict into a strictly formatted and rigid treatment program may help some, but the majority will not be responsive. It is akin to forcing a round peg into a square hole.
The answer to this dilemma is to design a program that fits the patient’s needs and unique features of his or her substance use disorder. This is a more time consuming undertaking that most rehabs just don’t want to deal with, but this is how the client will achieve success in recovery. Ranch Creek Recovery, an inpatient rehab in San Diego County, is more than willing to create an individual treatment plan for its clients.
Why an Individualized Inpatient Rehab in San Diego Works
Instead of herding people seeking sobriety into predetermined modules and activities, a much more effective approach involves designing a special plan tailored specifically for the client. By being sensitive to each client’s needs, an individualized rehab program is going to engage the client more in the treatment process as well as give them a sense of ownership over their recovery.
As the inpatient rehab program proceeds, counselors will tweak the plan based on a client’s changing needs or milestones achieved, as well as touch base on areas that might need special attention. Ranch Creek Recovery is a small, intimate rehab with a high staff-to-client ratio, making it the perfect setting to provide such individualized attention.
Examples of Activities Offered at an Individualized Program
In order to adequately serve so many varied needs among the client base, Ranch Creek Recovery offers a myriad of holistic and experiential activities, in addition to non 12-step meetings for social support. This holistic treatment program is designed to treat not just the addictive behaviors but to also provide tools that help guide the recovering addict towards new insights and self-discoveries that address the whole person, mind, body and soul.
The activities offered vary from solo, meditative therapies to outdoor, social activities. Again, based on the specific needs and preferences of the client there is something for everyone.
Some examples of these holistic activities include:
- Garden Therapy
- Equine Therapy
- Sound Healing
By interspersing the time spent in recovery with not only individual and group therapy sessions, but also these relaxing holistic activities helps provide a serene atmosphere conducive to healing. Clients can pick one of the activities for the duration of their stay or dabble in all of them. The purpose of offering so many options is to allow the client to be drawn towards the activity or activities that somehow resonate in their soul. This journey ultimately offers clarity and new revelations about the source of their pain and addictive behaviors, and a sense of empowerment to be able to change.
