Understanding Your Individualized Treatment Plan

When you are in recovery, knowing what comes next can be vital to your success. As you go through the process of supervised detox and move on to longer programming, you will work with a counselor to address your specific treatment needs. Together you will develop a treatment plan that will provide you with an outline of what you can expect as you move forward in your recovery.

How Your Individualized Treatment Plan Works

Your counselor will discuss with you your treatment goals, and how you feel about returning home. Based on your support network at home, you might decide that longer term inpatient treatment is your best option. Your plan will outline your strengths, what you want to work on, and the type of rehab you believe will work next.

Moving Forward With Your Treatment Plan

The treatment plan is designed to provide you with a way for you to measure your own progress while in treatment. You can change goals with the help of a counselor, and you can make overall changes to your plan as necessary. There will be times when your it determines what happens next, and other times where goals may be obsolete.

Knowing Your Own Treatment Goals

Your plan is written specifically for you. While you may not know exactly what you want to occur, you will have plenty of input when it comes to writing the treatment plan. Pay attention to the goals that you set for yourself. As your treatment goes on, goals will be met. If you feel that a goal is unattainable, it's time to change your goals to something more manageable.

Going through recovery is a process. Each day is an opportunity to learn something new. As you learn about the various aspects of staying sober, your goals will begin to change. Once detox is complete, you'll have the chance to go to inpatient care to learn more about the emotional side of addiction.

With the help of a proper plan, your recovery process will be easier to understand. You'll be able to measure progress and look for areas where you can improve. Treatment might begin in supervised detox, but it will continue on as you get stronger in your recovery. The more you pay attention to your treatment plan and work on your goals, the more successful you will be in your recovery.
