Substance abuse appears to contribute to a variety of harms; both for society and for the individual person. It is hardly a surprise that the increase of substance abuse treatment facilities is on the rise. With all the economic and social problems associated with substance abuse, treatment centers seem to be a good idea. Most treatment centers teach their clients how to be a contributing member of our society by changing their destructive behavior patterns.|
Behavioral model of service in drug treatment utilizes a framework from which the drug addict can possibly understand. In the behavior model of drug treatment, the individuals get to see a predisposition of behaviors that have been enabling them to continue their destructive behavior. High resistance to this self-efficiency has been shown to be associated with an increased use of drugs. In this model, we see the need of self-efficiency as a necessary component to break down the behaviors that they have used to get and abuse more drugs.
Most drug addicts have character defects that must be addressed while in the drug treatment center. Eventually, it occurs to the addicts that if they open up and get honest, they might actually stay clean. The selfishness begins to disappear, and the long-term progress starts to take hold; the person has taken the first step in recovery.
Treatment has a high turnover rate in how many people actually are able to stay off drugs for any extended period. This makes it important to try to get the person to change their behaviors and get them to look at themselves. Sometimes it takes two or three stays at a treatment center before the addict can get any long-term recovery; but it does happen.
If the client can move away from blame and look toward their own well being there is hope in staying off drugs permanently. Another thins that is beneficial is giving the addict a plan of action. It may be necessary for them to move to a new area of town, or even to another state to get away from their old way of life. In many cases, this can enhance their treatment progress.
Changing behaviors is what treatment should be about. When choosing a treatment center, look for one that has a good behavioral modification module in place and quality therapists that will help the addicts help themselves.
