With addiction treatment, there are no guarantees of success or wellness. The road to recovery comes with many fresh starts and potential setbacks. Relapse, to varying degrees, happens often and what works for one person may not work for another.
Multiple studies have shown that substance treatment reduces drug use by 40 to 60 percent.
In treatment, those with addiction learn skills, gain knowledge and receive resources to manage their disease. Success or progress should be viewed through a holistic lens, taking all physical, emotional, spiritual and mental health aspects into account.
It is also important to acknowledge that substance use and mental health go hand-in-hand. In the treatment field, the term “co-occurring” is used to describe this type of situation. For example, a person might have a diagnosis of trauma or depression and also an addiction issue. It’s crucial for a person with co-occurring issues to address both aspects when they are attending treatment.
