HIGH-LEVEL EXECS RECOVER AT 90% – DESPITE OUTDATED ADDICTION TREATMENT MODELS
Today’s model of addiction treatment was created in a mental hospital in the 1950s by two men who had no experience treating addicts or alcoholics. Coined the “Minnesota Model,” they created this innovative program to help alcoholism because people believed “it took about four weeks to stabilize somebody.” After it’s success, it quickly became a month-long standard.
60 years later, we’re still using the Minnesota Model to treat alcoholism, and it’s even been incorporated into drug abuse care. However, it was never intended to treat drug or opioid abuse. It simply became the standard because the insurance industry was willing to pay for month-long treatment even though many addicts continue to need a longer period of stabilization.
Times are changing. High-level execs and professionals are seeing a new, more sustainable kind of care that’s increasing their chances of sobriety up to 90%.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MONTH-LONG PROGRAMS AND THE PERSONALIZED CHRONIC-CARE MODEL MANY PROFESSIONALS RECEIVE
Professionals are held to a high standard of ethics, one that makes it hard for many to seek help for their addictions, especially when they know they could lose their license or their jobs, or face career-altering stigmas. And that’s saying nothing of the damage to personal and family relationships.
When they do reach out, they’re more often met with heightened confidentiality, and programs tailored to accommodate their lives, their unique stressors and triggers. Many companies even offer services to help their high-level execs get personalized programs and care.
In contrast, the month-long recovery model provides the same intensive program for every client that comes through the door. That means the majority of people who enter addiction treatment get the same care, through the same program, with little-to-no personalization.
GETTING SOBER IS AN INDIVIDUALIZED PROCESS
Marvin Ventrell, executive director of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers says addiction treatment should be based on the individual, the specific addiction, and the treatment setting, not a standard, month-long program.
It’s been proven that addiction treatment can produce higher levels of sobriety when people are treated as unique individuals, given personalized programs, presented with more confidentiality and privacy, and provided with the follow up to ensure lasting sobriety.
This is the kind of individualized care that’s raising long-term sobriety success as high as 90%, and it’s making its way into select treatment centers. The Pointe Malibu is one of them.
