What is Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment?

Evidence-based addition treatment means that both the diagnosis and treatment plans are backed by scientific research. Addiction is identified as a chronic disease by the medical community and requires long-term course of care treatment plans. A few different models of addiction exist; however, the medical or disease model of addiction leads the charge for evidence-based addiction treatment guidance.

The Medical Model (Disease Model) of Addiction

There are a few different models of addiction, but the medical model or “disease model” of addiction, is a modern interpretation of the addiction cycle. It suggests that there are biological, psychological, or sociological reasons underlying the nature of addiction. Basing our treatments on the medical model helps us identify and resolve the internal issues that lead to an addiction and set patients up for success in continuing their long-term treatment plans to manage their chronic disease of addiction.

Evidence-Based Care at JourneyPure Emerald Coast

As one of the JourneyPure premier rehabilitation centers, JourneyPure Emerald Coast offers addiction and dual diagnosis treatment services that are rooted in the scientific research of addiction. Our clinical and medical staff stay up-to-date on the latest medical model treatment methods striving to always provide patients with the highest level of care available. We acknowledge there is not yet a cure for addiction meaning that ongoing support and care is essential for disease management.

Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment Options

Due to the multi-faceted nature of addiction, and our understanding and use of the medical model, we provide customized treatment programs for each individual in recovery. Our programs include one-on-one therapy, group therapy, spiritual therapy, and experiential therapy. Each of the therapies we integrate into our group and individual sessions are supported by strong research for their use with individuals recovering from addiction. Some of these methods include:

  • Motivational Enhancement Therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Neurofeedback/Biofeedback Treatments
  • 12-Step

Getting Evidence-Based Addiction Help in Panama City Beach, Florida

It can be difficult to know whether substance abuse is a bad phase, youthful experimentation, or something far more dangerous. Addiction can develop in a matter of months or it may take years. If you suspect that you drug or alcohol use has become problematic and that you can no longer manage on your own, then it is time to consider getting help.

Not sure if addiction treatment is necessary? Consider the following:

  • Is substance abuse causing damage to your reputation, work, and relationships?
  • Is evasive behavior becoming a more common occurrence?
  • Is sobriety becoming physically or emotionally uncomfortable?
  • Is the use of substances taking the place of hobbies, old friends, or previously enjoyed activities?
  • Is substance abuse interfering with responsibilities?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, JourneyPure Emerald Coast is here to help.
