Addiction is a complex disease that affects brain function and behavior. Addiction is, however, treatable. Those afflicted with any addiction can not only recover, but can lead lives that are unparalleled in quality and dignity. Drugs of abuse alter the brains structure and function, resulting in changes that persist long after the drug use has ceased. This may partially explain why abusers are at risk for relapse even after long periods of abstinence and despite potentially devastating consequences.
No single treatment is appropriate for everyone. Matching treatment settings, interventions and services to individuals’ particular issues and needs is critical to his or her ultimate success in returning to productive functioning with family, workplace and society.
Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse. To be effective, treatment must address the individual’s drug abuse and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational and legal problems.
Remaining in treatment for an adequate period of time is critical. The appropriate duration for an individual depends on the type and degree of his or her problems and needs. Research indicates that most addicted individuals at least 3 months in treatment to significantly reduce or terminate their drug use and afford the most positive outcomes.
