RECOVERY IS NOT JUST ABOUT ABSTINENCE, IT IS ALSO ABOUT CHANGE
The recovery process can be broken down into stages for study and understanding.
Each of these stages corresponds to a fundamental need in the recovery process and is associated with a series of tasks that ensure that recovery remains on track.
The fundamental task is to relinquish the need for control over the use of substances in chemical dependencies or addictive behaviours in behavioural dependencies.
In this stage, all energy is focused on recovering from the harmful effects that compulsive use has had on the recovering person’s life.
In this stage, the first internal changes in thinking, feeling and attitude towards the use take place.
External changes take place. The repair of the lifestyle damaged by the addiction and the development of a healthier and more balanced lifestyle begin.
This stage is defined by overcoming unresolved emotional and family issues from childhood and adolescence.
This stage is based on the ability to maintain a balanced life and continued personal growth.
All these stages overlap and there is no exact definition that separates them, but they operate to navigate the relevant tasks in recovery.
While recovery is the process by which the addicted person stops using and makes positive lifestyle changes, treatment is defined as a series of structured clinical activities used to help the addicted person recognize and stop their active addiction and to promote and maintain a lasting recovery.
There is a need to clarify the relationship between these two processes, which act in a harmonious and coordinated manner.
Recovery is lifelong and its goal is to improve the quality of life of the recovering addict.
Treatment is limited to a period of time, although several treatment sessions may be required throughout the addict’s life.
The goal of treatment is to help the patient recover.
Clinical intervention is effective in beginning the recovery process.
Family intervention is a technique to help the addicted person make the decision to recover.
This intervention must be guided by a trained professional and relies on the power of the family as a positive pressure group.
If a proper diagnosis of the addiction is made at this time, it is more likely that a specific treatment recommendation will be made.
It is advisable to seek the opinion of an addiction professional who is trained and qualified in this area.
There is still much that the professional community does not know about the issue of addiction, but there is also a growing community of professionals who are committed to the training, updating and quality of care needed to work in the field of addiction treatment.
There are no quick or magic “cures”; to even suggest them shows a crass ignorance of the subject.
Moreover, this attitude is precisely at the heart of the mental dynamics of addiction: the obsessive search for the quick fix, the magic substance, the person, place, or thing that will “fix” our lives.
Addiction treatment must be comprehensive, systemic, and strategic, addressing as many levels as possible: personal, family, professional, social, etc. and the person as a whole must be considered.
Psychosocial change is where most of the energy of treatment will be invested, as this is where the potential for constructive change is greatest.
The various therapeutic tools can and should be used holistically and with consideration for the individual needs of each person, but never as a substitute for psychosocial treatment.
Each individual treatment plan should be based on the severity of the addiction process, the individual characteristics of the person and the status of their psychosocial functioning at that time.
Studies show that a balanced plan consisting of self-help group participation and professional follow-up is the most effective therapy for patients who do not require hospitalization.
