Evidence-Based Treatment

The Science Behind Rehabilitation

Evidence-based practices in addiction treatment are widely becoming accepted – and generally required – as the most credible practices at drug rehab centers around the country. For the addict or alcoholic, evidenced-based practices mean that their treatment will be based on therapies that have been tested and proven using various scientific methods. But for some clinicians, this means adopting techniques that may stray from traditional practices. Therefore, understanding EBP is critical for addiction treatment professionals and those in recovery because as new treatment modalities are tested, they may eventually be considered an evidence-based practice.

Why is Evidence-Based Practice Vital?

For the addict or alcoholic, this means that the treatment available to them by reaching out for help is literally “tried and true,” and has probably already helped thousands of individuals triumph over their addictions. To be effective, evidence-based practices must be:

  • Credibility: The assurance that a treatment has already been successful for countless individuals battling addiction.
  • Availability: Easy access without the need for the patient to go through unnecessary hurdles.
  • Cost-Efficiency: Whether through insurance or self-payment, treatments should be economically viable.
  • Personalized Approach: Tailoring the treatment according to individual needs is paramount.
  • Holistic Healing: The treatment should consider the mental, physical, and emotional triggers and symptoms of addiction.
  • Duration: A treatment’s length should guarantee long-term recovery.
  • Adaptability: As individuals grow and change, their treatment plans should evolve accordingly.

Evidence-based Practices are treatment and prevention interventions related to mental health and substance abuse, shown by evidence to be effective. Some of the most common Evidence-Based Practices used in addiction treatment include Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

According to American Addiction Centers, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a valuable treatment tool because it can be used for many different types of addiction including food addiction, alcohol addiction, and prescription drug addiction.

These techniques and practices include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Motivational Enhancement and Interviewing.
  • Medication-Assisted Therapies (MAT)
  • Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)

Evidence-based treatments are rooted in scientific research and have undergone rigorous testing to prove their efficacy. Traditional methods, while they might have years of anecdotal success, may not have been systematically studied or validated through scientific research.

While evidence-based treatments are proven to be effective for many, it’s essential to understand that individual needs can vary. A treatment that works for one person might not be as effective for another. It’s always recommended to consult with a healthcare professional to find the best treatment plan tailored to an individual’s unique circumstances.
