What is Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment?

When an addiction treatment center utilizes evidence-based addiction treatment, both the patient’s diagnosis and treatment therapies are backed by peer-reviewed scientific evidence. Addiction is defined 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 guidance in addiction treatment. The model suggests that there are biological, psychological, or sociological reasons underlying the nature of addiction. Basing an addiction treatment plan on the medical model helps clinical staff identify and resolve the internal issues that lead to addiction, while creating a long-term, sustainable recovery plan.

What to Expect From Our Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment

As one of the JourneyPure premier rehabilitation centers, JourneyPure Emerald Coast offers evidence-based addiction 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.

Each patient receives a customized treatment plan, that addresses all of their physical and psychological needs. Our patients can expect one-on-one therapy, group therapy, spiritual therapy, and experiential therapies, such as outdoor adventure, equine and songwriting. Each of the evidence-based addiction treatment therapies utilized at JourneyPure Emerald Coast is integrated into our group and individual sessions. What each patient needs from these therapies is unique, but in general, they are designed to uncover the root cause of the addiction, treat trauma, PTSD, depression or other mood disorders, and to provide the patient the coping strategies needed to move forward in recovery.

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 education and meetings

Successful evidence-based addiction treatment programs begin with detox and proceed with customized behavioral therapies. Post-treatment is followed up with well-designed aftercare plan for sustaining abstinence. Our holistic approach addresses every aspect of addiction, health and wellness – physically, emotionally and spiritually.
