the right way provides information, coaching, and guidance to those who are seeking help with addictions.
Substance use disorders are becoming more common in our world today. What we see is so many people hurting and turning to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate. Inpatient treatment centers are the go-to method for overcoming addictions, but many treatment centers today are herding people through simply for the money. Some people who attend treatment programs aren’t helped at all. At The Right Way, we have assembled a group of partner programs that truly care about the people they help. Our partners care first and foremost about helping people, not profits.
For those struggling with an addiction or other mental health disorder, understanding treatment options and making the right decisions is often confusing or overwhelming. The Right Way provides guidance, coaching, and referrals to proven and pre-vetted programs. Our services are offered free of charge to everyone, regardless of an individual’s financial status or ability to pay for treatment services.
Here are a list of common types of addiction treatment programs. We work to understand the individual needs of each person that calls us for help. In outlining a recovery plan, we may refer to some or all of these types of programs.
Dotoxification, or “detox”, is the process of cleansing the body from the addictive substance. Medical detox is preferred for most addictions, as the withdrawal process can cause sometimes life-threatening complications. At the very least, a medically-supervised detox is preferred, as a licensed professional can administer medications to ease the withdrawal process and ensure safety.
The importance of a solid addiction treatment program cannot be stressed enough. The Right Way will propose solid, safe, and effective programs that will help our clients build strong, lasting recovery from addictions. Treatment programs are often 30 days long, but many individuals find better quality recovery with longer programs.
Dual Diagnosis programs
Studies show that drug and alcohol addictions can be symptoms of larger issues. Often, mental health issues are an underlying cause that an individual may not be aware of. Programs that offer dual-diagnosis treatment can be much more effective than simple addiction treatment alone.
Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)
A partial hospitalization program offers treatment services on an outpatient basis, usually eight hours a day, five days a week. At night, patients return home or to a recovery residence nearby. PHPs typically run anywhere from 30 to 90 days, and serve a variety of addictions including drugs, alcohol, eating disorders, gambilng, sex, and other addictions.
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)
Intensive outpatient programs offer intensive recovery and relapse prevention education, and are often attended after a residential or inpatient treatment program has been completed. IOPs are typically scheduled 2-3 times per week, during hours that allow patients to attend work or school during the day. In some cases, it may be appropriate to start at an IOP program if work or school schedules prevent admission to an inpatient program.
Sober Living & Recovery Residences
Recovery residences are real homes where people in recovery can go to live for a period of time while they learn to live a new, healthy life in recovery. A recovery residence is supervised by a manager, and offers accountability to a new life in recovery. In the event of a relapse, a recovery residence manager has the resources and expertise to help residents get back on track with their recovery.
12-Step and Other Recovery Groups
During and after treatment, many individuals will be exposed to 12-step and other support groups for the first time. There are many such groups available, specific to alcohol, narcotics, eating disorders, gambling, sex, nicotine, and others. For those new in recovery, it is recommended to find a local support group to help maintain newfound recovery. Most of these support groups exist in every community across the nation.
