Title: Drug Rehab Treatment Classes

Drug Rehab Treatment Classes
When you are enrolled in a residential treatment
program for drug addiction, you will usually
attend classes and lectures at least once a day.
Usually they are interactive, and the lecturer
will require the class to participate with
questions and comments. Most lecturers use a
variety of techniques and visual aids to keep the
classes interesting. During these classes, you
will learn the latest information about drug
addiction and recovery. You will gain an
understanding of how drugs react with your brain
chemicals, and how addiction occurs on the
physical level. You may have a class on the
damaging effects of different drugs, and how best
to counteract this damage with healthy food,
exercise, and appropriate amounts of sleep.
Drug Rehab Treatment Classes
Types of Treatment Programs Research studies on
addiction treatment typically have classified
programs into several general types or
modalities. Treatment approaches and individual
programs continue to evolve and diversify, and
many programs today do not fit neatly into
traditional drug addiction treatment
classifications. Long-Term Residential
Treatment Long-term residential treatment
provides care 24 hours a day, generally in
non-hospital settings.
Drug Rehab Treatment Classes
The best-known residential treatment model is the
therapeutic community (TC), with planned lengths
of stay of between 6 and 12 months. TCs focus on
the "resocialization" of the individual and use
the programs entire communityincluding other
residents, staff, and the social contextas
active components of treatment. Addiction is
viewed in the context of an individuals social
and psychological deficits, and treatment focuses
on developing personal accountability and
responsibility as well as socially productive
lives. Short-Term Residential Treatment Short-te
rm residential programs provide intensive but
relatively brief treatment based on a modified
12-step approach.
Drug Rehab Treatment Classes
These programs were originally designed to treat
alcohol problems, but during the cocaine epidemic
of the mid-1980s, many began to treat other types
of substance use disorders. The original
residential treatment model consisted of a 3- to
6-week hospital-based inpatient treatment phase
followed by extended outpatient therapy and
participation in a self-help group, such as
AA. Outpatient Treatment Programs Outpatient
treatment varies in the types and intensity of
services offered. Such treatment costs less than
residential or inpatient treatment and often is
more suitable for people with jobs or extensive
social supports.

It should be noted, however, that low-intensity
programs may offer little more than drug
education. Other outpatient models, such as
intensive day treatment, can be comparable to
residential programs in services and
effectiveness, depending on the individual
patients characteristics and needs. Individualiz
ed Drug Counseling Individualized drug
counseling not only focuses on reducing or
stopping illicit drug or alcohol use it also
addresses related areas of impaired
functioningsuch as employment status, illegal
activity, and family/social relationsas well as
the content and structure of the patients

program. Through its emphasis on short-term
behavioral goals, individualized counseling helps
the patient develop coping strategies and tools
to abstain from drug use and maintain
abstinence. Group Counseling Many therapeutic
settings use group therapy to capitalize on the
social reinforcement offered by peer discussion
and to help promote drug-free lifestyles.
Research has shown that when group therapy either
is offered in conjunction with individualized
drug counseling or is formatted to reflect the
principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy or
contingency management, positive outcomes are
achieved. Currently, researchers are testing
conditions in which group therapy can be
standardized and made more community-friendly.
