Addiction is a behavioral problem, and the longer it remains unaddressed, the worse it gets. As a progressive disease with no cure, addiction has destroyed thousands of lives and continues to do so with each passing year. Because addiction is behavioral, it is also very personal for many addicts. The vast majority of individuals who struggle with addiction suffer from some form of trauma, pain, or inner turmoil that either contributes to or has caused the destructive behaviors that lead to addiction. Just as a personal journey led most addicts to addiction, recovery is also a personal journey and should be sought out as such. Over the past several decades of addiction treatment, a massive shift has taken place, in which addiction rehab centers are offering more personalized approaches to treatment, tailored to each individual and his or her needs, preferences, and belief system. Nonexistent 30 years ago, today’s drug rehab centers can offer wide varieties of treatment such as:

  •  12-step
  •  Holistic
  •  Catholicism based
  •  Muslim faith-based
  •  Self-discipline
  •  Native American
  •  Judaism based
  •  Christian based
  •  Gender-specific
  •  Age-specific
  •  GLBT community based

There are so many options from which to choose for rehab, it can be very difficult to determine what would be best for an addict in need of help. The goal of addiction rehab is to empower each addict to find his or her own path to recovery from addiction and do so in a way that best relates to the individual. Understanding that one type of treatment program may be the best for one addict, but may not resonate with another, is the reason for the massive variety in addiction treatment programs. However, it is important not to take these options lightly. Addiction is a deadly disease, and if addiction treatment is not effective, there may not be another chance to get it right. An informed decision should always be made, and it should be based on the individual, his or her needs, preferences, and belief system.
