Medication and Technology in Alcohol and Drug Treatment
and drug addiction
haven’t changed over time, and treatment still requires a certain level of patient motivation for recovery. That motivation is the key to cultivating the deep-seeded desire to quit using alcohol or other drugs. Forward thinking facilities, like Tarzana Treatment Centers, are using medications and technology to encourage patients to stay motivated.
When individuals make the decision to enter alcohol and drug treatment
, motivation is at its highest level. Whether the reason is legal, financial, or relationship, doesn’t matter. It is only important to validate the motivation and encourage treatment. From the moment of the decision, the addicted mind will begin to chip away at the motivation for recovery.
One way to slow the demotivation is to offer solutions to concerns that are often stated during the treatment admission process. Previously failed attempts at recovery can cause pessimistic feelings. Heavy work schedules and family needs can be a barrier to aftercare discussions. Medication Assisted Treatments (MAT)
can bring optimism, and telehealth
can break down barriers.
Alcohol and opiate cravings are major causes of relapse. Tarzana Treatment Centers is a Vivitrol treatment provider. Vivitrol reduces alcohol and opiate cravings, taking away the distraction that can hinder or put a halt to treatment. Methadone Maintenance is also available for qualified opioid addicts who have struggled with multiple relapses. MAT offers hope to individuals who are motivated for recovery, and have a simultaneous “what’s the use?” feeling.
Sometimes the timing of recovery motivation conflicts with work or family obligations, or transportation may be an issue. Instead of labeling this as an “excuse”, Tarzana Treatment Centers offers telehealth services. Using secure video conference technology, you can attend counseling sessions from your home or office. Telehealth is proving to be just as effective as face-to-face outpatient treatment.
