At Discovery Institute we know that each client is unique and their case must be treated as
such. We begin our treatment planning as soon as we know a client will be coming through our doors, to ensure that we provide the services that will best fit their needs for recovery. Treatment planning is kind of like a road map for the end goal, which is health and sobriety. We work with our clients to come up with the best, custom, and individual road maps as we can.
What Does Treatment Planning Involve?
Coming up with a treatment plan combines a number of different elements for success. We focus on the following:
- Substance abuse history
- Initial drug screening
- Mental health history and evaluation
- Family history and dynamics
- The client’s status at work or in school
- Legal issues
- Medical history and special needs
- Past trauma and significant events
Once our doctors and therapists have gathered all of this information, we work with the patient and sometimes their family to come up with the best course of action for treatment. We prescribed the best medication for their needs and come up with the best treatment track to address their biggest concerns.
A client’s treatment plan is not set in stone. It is constantly re-evaluated as the patient goes through their course of treatment, and is subject to change and evolve based on their needs at any time.
