Treating Addiction: Drug Addict Rehab Treatment Procedures Part 2

Updated on June 30, 2010

These cases of mandating attendance to Alcoholics Anonymous programs has no firm history of success thus courts and employers should be discouraged from mandating Alcoholics Anonymous programs to people under their purview. It is rather surprising that there seems to have been little if any substantiative clinical research studies of Narcotics Anonymous or any of the other similar groups for patients with substance abuse problems other than Alcoholics Anonymous.

The expectation that some patients may excel in some forms of Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment and with some therapists more than their professional colleagues has an issue which has been debated for some time. A major study on this subject involved alcoholics who had undergone therapy by professional Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment therapists who applied a directive therapy style. The most directive professional therapists had a tendency to have and express rather rigid regulations, to conduct their affairs in an extremely consistent manner, and to conduct firmly structured Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment sessions.

The therapist professionals who utilized less directive techniques were more relaxed and encouraged a greater degree of self-expression and personal autonomy. Some patients assigned to varying types of Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment expressed differences in conceptual level, which refers to variations in personality and ways of thinking, resulting in differences in the requirement for guidance and structure.

Research tends to discover that patients who are treated by different professional therapists and explored that those with conceptual levels that matched the therapists' styles had a greater degree of overall success in the program than others. Therefore, patients with a requirement for firm infrastructure had greater success with directive professional therapists and vice versa. Patients who were mismatched with the style of therapy had an equally low standard of success with both types of therapists and their therapeutic programs.

A range of other successful combinational matches has been discovered involving varying Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment and these specific patient characteristics: gender, sociopathy, beliefs about alcoholism, family history of alcoholism, ability to comprehend personal problem alcoholic beverage situations, matrix of control, and self-image.

There has not yet been adequate research conducted into the feasibility that both dropouts and passive participants are able to derive benefit from the Alcoholics Anonymous experience. Only a relatively small fraction of patients ever exposed to Alcoholics Anonymous have a tendency to become dynamic, active members over a long term period of time and consistently adhere to all of the twelve steps. There is some research that points to the discovery that certain types of patients may have a greater likelihood to completely associate and affiliate with Alcoholics Anonymous than some others, however more research is required and some of the previously conducted research may no longer be relevant due to the current variety and diversity that various Alcoholics Anonymous groups now tend to display versus the relative stability of Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment centers. It seems probable that Alcoholics Anonymous would appeal to patients who have undergone serious alcoholism related problems and who can adhere to the requirement for strict abstinence mandated by the Alcoholics Anonymous dictums and structures.
