No two people struggle with addiction in the same way, and it makes sense that no two ways of treating addiction are the same either. Some people may require more medical care during their addiction treatment, while others need to work on finding their ways of overcoming cravings. There’s no shortage of issues to work on when it comes to addiction, but it can be easy to get caught up in parts of treatment you may not necessarily need to focus on. Treatment centers and plans that lean towards a one-size-fits-all may not be focusing on what you would actually benefit from, and if you’re not addressing issues or concerns that you should, you’re not getting a well-rounded treatment. If important issues are left unaddressed, it can open the door to difficulties during sobriety that could even lead to relapse.
Having a treatment plan that’s balanced with what you need is important because it creates a plan that’s more tailored to what you need. If you’re in good health despite an addiction to drugs or alcohol, a program or plan that’s heavily based in medical care or building a healthy life may not be the most beneficial for you. While there’s certainly no harm in learning more about healthy habits, if you’ve already got a strong foothold in that area, you could be focusing on something else that you’re struggling with instead.
In the same instance, it’s just as important to be open minded about trying something in treatment you aren’t sure would benefit you or not. It can be easy to lie to ourselves about not having an issue that needs to be worked through, but by keeping both an open mind and a sense of balance in your treatment, you’re giving yourself the opportunity to admit that you may need help with something else you hadn’t considered before.
Having a balanced treatment plan will benefit you in the long run when you’ve finished that treatment, and you’re ready to head out into sober living. By not focusing too much or too little on any one area, you’re giving yourself the opportunity to address what you really need, rather than just skimming through multiple areas that you may not need as much as another.
