DDB Supported Drug Facilities
TREATMENT AND REHABILITATION
Treatment and rehabilitation of drug dependents is an essential component of drug demand reduction. Republic Act 9165 or the “The Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002”, as amended (the “Act”) mandates that it is State policy to provide effective mechanisms or measures to re-integrate into society individuals who have fallen victims to drug abuse or dangerous drug dependence through sustainable programs of treatment and rehabilitation.
Treatment and Rehabilitation Centers accredited by the Department of Health utilize different drug treatment modalities or approaches in the treatment of drug dependents.
- Multidisciplinary Team Approach avails of the services and skills of a team composed of a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, occupational therapist, or practitioners of other related disciplines in collaboration with the family and the drug dependent.
- Therapeutic Community Approachviews addiction as a symptomatic manifestation of a more complex psychological problem rooted in an interplay of emotional, social, physical and spiritual values. It is a highly structured program wherein the community is utilized as the primary vehicle to foster behavioral and attitudinal change. The patient receives the information and the impetus to change from being a part of the community. Role modelling and peer pressure play significant parts in the program.
The goal of every therapeutic community is to change the patients’ self-destructive thinking and behavioral pattern, teach them personal responsibility, positivize their self-image, create a sense of human community and provide an environment in which human beings can grow and take responsibility and credit for the growth.
- Hazelden-Minnesota Modelviews addiction as a disease, an involuntary condition caused by factors largely outside a person’s control. The program consists of didactic lectures, cognitive-behavioral psychology, Alcoholic Anonymous principles / Twelve Steps Principles and biblio-therapy. In this modality, counsellors and patients collaborate in defining the path to recovery.
- Spiritual Approachuses the Bible as the primary source of inspiration to change. It views drug addiction as a sin and encourages the patients to turn away from it and renew their relationships with the Lord.
- Eclectic Approachaims at applying a holistic approach in the rehabilitation program. The spiritual and cognitive components of the Twelve Steps complement the behavioral aspects of the Therapeutic Community. The skills and services of rehabilitation professionals and paraprofessionals are made available. In doing so, different personality aspects of drug dependents are well addressed geared towards their rehabilitation and recovery
