The therapies offered by a facility are some of the most important factors of a successful recovery experience. However, recovery is not a one size fits all experience. Someone struggling with a substance use disorder will likely need professional care. There are a variety of evidence-based addiction treatment options that can be implemented to help these people overcome their struggles. Banyan Veterans in Recovery is proud to offer some of the most effective programs to develop successful addiction treatment strategies for our patients.
For something to be accepted as evidence-based, it needs to have been studied and evaluated by researchers and published in a peer-reviewed journal. Many of these therapies address specific aspects of a patient's addiction. They can be used on their own or in combination with other methods. Banyan's Military rehab center is proud to offer a number of these therapy programs at our facility.
Common types of evidence-based addiction treatment include:
Another evidence-based practice for addiction care is the use of medication. In certain cases, physicians and professionals can prescribe medication that is specifically designed to ease the symptoms of patients. While this can seem counterproductive due to the nature of the disease in question, it can still be useful in cases of withdrawal symptoms.
For instance, Suboxone is effective in managing opioid withdrawals and reducing cravings. Another example includes how drugs like Vivitrol can help by blocking neurological receptors responsible for the pleasurable effects of alcohol.
If you or a loved one is struggling to overcome an addiction, take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. Our team of professionals is ready and waiting to help you overcome these challenges, and we will be with you every step of the way.
