Understanding addiction as a highly destructive social disease and not a moral failing often helps families to understand their role in treatment when it comes to both financial and moral support.
The more we unpack about ourselves psychologically, the more we are able to understand the mechanics that drive our addictions and how to effectively treat each problem.
Psychotherapy however is not the only answer to the disease of addiction.
Treatment involves five key areas starting with the physical cessation of the substance, handling of the psychological patterns that have developed through the addiction, introduction to support systems, goal setting and ongoing training, self-actualization and long-term relapse prevention training / life coaching.
Support systems found through the 12 step anonymous groups fortify these five areas however professional work is best undertaken by professionals. Professional addiction counsellors can be challenged on the outcomes of patients and vice versa challenge patients on their progress.
The reliability and accountability shortfalls in anonymous groups leave much to be desired in addressing the relapse cycles of patients (especially newcomers) to recovery. As a substantiating factor the anonymous groups play a key role in the reformatting of deeply entrenched patterns on a long term basis by professional counsellors.
