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.

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:

  • Readily Available
  • Affordable
  • Individualized
  • Addresses Underlying Causes and Co-Occurring Conditions
  • Of Sufficient Duration
  • Constantly Evolving
