What is an addiction recovery program?

An addiction recovery program is a comprehensive service that provides you with the tools and support you need during recovery from addiction. Dr. Jordan is an experienced nurse practitioner who takes a patient-centered approach to care. She focuses on you, not your disease.

Addiction is a chronic disease. Like any other chronic illness, it requires ongoing medical care and management. The goal of the addiction recovery program at Jordan Healthcare Center is to help you maintain your sobriety.

What are some types of addiction recovery programs?

There are many types of addiction recovery programs. They include:

Recovery-oriented program

A recovery-oriented program takes a medical approach to addiction, like chronic disease management. With this type of program, the focus is on providing you with the medical and mental health support you need to manage your addiction.

Treatments might include medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which is a whole-person approach to addiction, combining prescription medications that control cravings with behavioral therapy.

Recovery support program

Recovery support programs are community-based programs that provide emotional and peer support during recovery. These types of programs also help you stay in remission by giving you a sponsor you can talk to about your personal struggles. 

Social and recreational program

Social and recreational programs for addiction give those in recovery an opportunity to socialize in situations that don’t involve alcohol or drugs. 

Who benefits from an addiction recovery program?

Anyone struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol that wants help benefits from an addiction recovery program. Before making any recommendations, Dr. Jordan completes a thorough evaluation to understand your addiction, recovery readiness, and overall health.

She then talks to you about the program and what’s expected of you. If you both decide the addiction recovery program can help you, Dr. Jordan creates your personalized plan, which may include medications, therapy, community resources, or group classes.

In addition to helping manage your addiction, Dr. Jordan cares for any underlying medical or mental health issues, such as liver disease, depression, or anxiety.
