Medical professionals and scientists have been studying on addiction treatment for many many years, and they have found the various principles that makes up what an effective treatment includes. Here are a few samples taken from this publication from the National Institute of Drug Abuse. Most importantly, treatments should be individualized as “no single treatment is appropriate for everyone”, and for the treatment to be effective, it attends to multiple needs of the patient, not simply the drug abuse problem. Furthermore, it takes time for the treatment to work and drug abuse doesn’t just go away overnight, as the addict needs to remain in treatment for an adequate period of time. No plan is perfect either, so the treatment plan should always be adaptable and should be assessed constantly and modify when needed. Finally, the patient need to be monitored in case of relapses, which is common.
