Each addicted person/IP has many needs that need to be addressed while in treatment. The family depends on the interventionist to direct them to find the best treatment modalities for their loved one.
1) It is very important that the addicted person/IP is sent to a treatment facility that will meet the IP / family’s needs such as; budgets, insurance, gender, mental health diagnoses, type of addiction, and location.
2) The key component is to choose a treatment program that fits the addicted person’s/ IP needs while meeting the family’s budget.
3) The interventionist coordinates this process by gathering information on treatment programs.
Upon conclusion of the intervention, based on the acceptance of treatment from the IP, travel arrangements such as;
▪ Assist with moving the IP into the selected treatment program can be arranged with the interventionist prior to the intervention day.
▪ This is usually discussed at the pre-intervention meeting.
▪ This may include an extra cost depending on details such as; the addicted person may need to stay overnight with the interventionist while waiting to attend treatment the following day or it may be a long way to travel to the selected treatment program.
LEVELS OF CARE:
Medical detox: Detox services are offered in a variety of settings, including hospitals, inpatient treatment centers, outpatient programs, clinics, and more.
Inpatient rehabilitation: This level of rehabilitation, or “rehab,” often follows a period of intensive detox and involves 24-hour medical supervision at a hospital or other treatment facility.
Residential treatment: Clients who can benefit from the stability and security of 24-hour monitoring are good candidates for residential treatment. Residential treatment facilities offer therapies in an attractive setting with comfortable, homelike surroundings and a supportive atmosphere.
Partial hospitalization: Partial hospitalization services combine the structure and supervision of an inpatient program with more independence, which offer recovery services on an outpatient basis in a hospital or inpatient treatment facility.
Intensive outpatient programs: Outpatient treatment, in which the client participates in recovery activities during the day while returning to a private home or transitional housing program.
Transitional living/sober housing programs: After rehab, clients may feel more secure in their sobriety if they can live in an atmosphere that supports abstinence from drugs or alcohol. Transitional living homes provide these advantages while giving the client the opportunity to reintegrate into the community.
Family treatment programs: An important aspect for families to attend an independent family program or a family program that their loved one is being treated for addictions or mental health.
