What are Recovery Programs?

Rehab recovery programs are different methods of supporting a person after he or she has achieved sobriety. Although several types of recovery programs exist, many are chiefly based around a 12-step program. Examples of well-known 12-step programs are Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. However, a recovery program that has a 12-step basis is not necessarily like Alcoholics Anonymous.

12-step programs are recovery programs that are designed to encourage positive changes in a person’s life, teaching them to create a life that is free from drugs and alcohol. The first step in recovery is for the person to admit he or she has a problem. Examples of additional steps include reflecting on past errors, making amends for these errors and learning to live a new life free from drugs and alcohol.

Different Models of Addiction Treatment Therapy

Examples of models of addiction treatment therapy include cognitive/behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing.

The cognitive/behavioral model is where a therapist asks a person to think about his or her past behaviors and responses to these behaviors. A therapist can help the person establish ways to say no or resist urges to relapse.

Examples of therapy applications of cognitive-behavioral models include individual therapy and group therapies. In some ways, therapies such as art, music and equine therapy are also forms of cognitive-behavioral therapies because they encourage a person to adopt positive behaviors over negative thoughts.

Motivational interviewing is a goal-oriented method to help a person achieve positive change. While traditional therapy does not have a direction and involves a person talking about subjects he or she chooses, motivational interviewing has more structure and must always work toward a goal. Characteristics of motivational interviewing include interaction and focusing on positive change.

Motivational interviewing is utilized in the SMART recovery program. SMART stands for self-management and recovery training. The program is a “4-Point Program” that involves:

  1. Building and maintaining motivation
  2. Coping with urges
  3. Managing thoughts, feelings and behaviors
  4. Living a balanced life.

Principles of Effective Treatment

When a person chooses to seek rehab recovery treatment for his or her addiction, the goal is sobriety—long-lasting abstinence from drugs and alcohol. To do this, a person must choose a rehabilitation program that will be effective for him or her.

Examples of programs that provide effective treatment include those that emphasize customizing the therapy plan to each individual’s needs. The program should provide access to or plans for some type of aftercare services to allow a person to continue his or her recovery process.

The rehab recovery program should offer a long enough time period where a person can truly build the skills necessary to overcome addiction in his or her daily life. A treatment program should be adaptable, meaning the program may change according to a person’s needs. The program should use treatments that are backed by scientific evidence.
