According to a study by the National Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors, Rational Recovery Systems, and Society of Psychologists in Addictive Behaviors, treatment providers differ widely depending on their placement on the Spiritual Belief Scale. This system measures adherence to either the free will model of addiction or the disease model of addiction, with individual programs often incompatible if they use different models. For example, Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and other 12-step support groups use the disease model of addiction and may not be compatible with other forms of treatment. Other factors that are likely to influence the availability of treatment include staff expertise and the needs of the local community.
People seeking treatment for a substance use disorder may be living with secondary problems, including secondary substance use disorders, behavior addictions, and mental health disorders. Drug treatment centers may be able to treat these problems directly, with common behavior addictions including to sex, gambling, food, and exercise. The co-existence of a mental health problem can have a big influence on treatment, with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders known as a dual diagnosis. Before any kind of medication treatment or psychotherapy can begin, clients need to be evaluated physically and psychologically to avoid complications. Depression and anxiety problems are especially common among the drug dependent population, with therapists able to tailor their treatments accordingly.
Physical dependence is defined by tolerance and the existence of a physical-somatic withdrawal syndrome upon cessation of use. Physical dependence is only possible with a few classes of drugs, including alcohol, opioids including heroin, and sedatives including benzodiazepines. While physical dependence is often associated with addiction, they are not necessarily the same thing. For example, someone taking benzo drugs for a psychiatric illness can develop physical dependence without developing an addiction, which also includes uncontrolled consumption and psychological attachment. People become dependent on drugs in two main ways: some develop dependence after a long period of medical use and others develop dependence quickly after extensive recreational abuse.
Psychological dependence is defined by an emotional-motivational withdrawal syndrome upon cessation of use or dose reduction, with typical effects including drug cravings, lack of motivation, depression, and anxiety. Most psychoactive drugs are capable of causing psychological dependence, including those substances that cause physical dependence. While physical addictions also have a psychological component, the opposite is not necessarily the case. Psychologically addictive drugs include cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, MDMA, ketamine, and prescription stimulants among others. While physical addictions often require pharmacotherapy treatments, psychological addictions may depend entirely on psychotherapy measures. Relapse prevention also plays an important role in drug treatment, with clients given the psychological coping skills and practical support they need for long-term recovery.
