Principles of Effective Treatment

The following key principles should form the basis of any effective treatment program:

  • Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior.
  • No single treatment is right for everyone.
  • People need to have quick access to treatment.
  • Effective treatment addresses all of the patient’s needs, not just his drug/alcohol use.
  • Staying in treatment long enough is critical.
  • Individual counseling and group therapy are commonly used forms of treatment.
  • Multiple modalities of behavioral therapies work best.
  • Treatment plans must be reviewed often and modified to fit the clients changing needs.
  • Treatment should address other possible mental disorders.
  • Treatment doesn't need to be voluntary to be effective.
  • Family counselling during and after treatment is key.
