When a union member arrives at Atlantic Recovery Center, he or she will be assigned an individual case manager to implement and oversee that member’s treatment regimen. This not only ensures the best possible individualized care, but also guarantees that all other affairs are attended to. The individual addict or alcoholic can take the time off to focus on their recovery while their case manager sees to their financial, legal and work-related matters.
According to the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), “treatment” is defined as “in- or outpatient services that focus on initiating and maintaining an individual’s recovery from alcohol or drug abuse and on preventing relapse.
Unfortunately, a significant proportion of individuals with substance use disorders do not receive the care they need. Research shows that 47% of men and 41% of women in need of treatment for illicit drug abuse are not treated.
The strongest argument for using the solutions offered at Atlantic Recovery Center is the opportunity to reduce the enormous costs—health, disability and liability—that companies face as a result of undiagnosed and untreated substance abuse.
Studies show that up to 70% of patients who are treated for substance dependence eventually recover.
Individuals who receive treatment for addiction have:
Better long-term outcomes
Improved long-term health
Improved family and other relationships
Treatment for addiction must be of sufficient duration and intensity to maximize the likelihood that the employee will remain abstinent following acute care. In general, better outcomes are typically associated with inpatient treatment lengths that are greater than 50 days. In fact, research shows that for either residential or outpatient treatment, lengths of less than 50 days are of little or no effectiveness. Persons with more severe or multiple problems may need a longer duration.
Here at Atlantic Recovery Center we offer all levels of care with the goal being that the clients are given the best possible chance to recover after being in our care at some level for over 90 days. This continuum of care allows people to enter treatment at the setting most appropriate for the severity of their addiction and permits step-up or step-down adjustments as needed.
The choice of setting should be based on treatment needs and clinical characteristics of the patient, but the least restrictive, most appropriate treatment setting provides the opportunity to maximize outcomes while controlling costs.
There is a range of treatment settings, including:
Intensive outpatient care
Community support programs, such as 12-step programs.
