Clients in non-residential treatment programs have the opportunity to control the direction of their care by collaborating closely with the clinical team. According to the Journal of Substance Use and Addiction Treatment, “[C]linicians can invite patients to join clinical decision-making processes, explain different treatment options (with different possible consequences), and facilitate patients’ informed decision-making.” The Redpoint Center prioritizes personalized care and encourages clients to actively participate in treatment planning. 

Why Is Client Participation in Care Planning Important During Non-Residential Treatment? 

Everyone benefits when clients actively participate in their own treatment planning. According to the previously mentioned article in the Journal of Substance Use and Addiction Treatment, “[I]ncorporating patients’ concerns and preferences into shared decision-making may be an important ingredient for improving patient engagement in effective substance use treatment services.”

Client participation in care planning does the following: 

  • Improves client self-awareness
  • Ensures the care team is aware of essential client information 
  • Increases trust between clients and the care team 
  • Improved communication between the care team and client families 

In addition, individuals with co-occurring mental health issues related to trauma have a lower risk of retraumatization when they control the direction of their treatment. 

Client-Controlled Care Increases the Effectiveness of Non-Residential Treatment 

Non-residential treatment gives clients much more freedom to engage with their families and community. Between treatment sessions, clients regularly see to personal or professional responsibilities. Client-controlled treatment plans ensure the services and treatment sessions work around the client’s schedule. The versatility of non-residential treatment makes it ideal for people who don’t have the luxury to take time off work or away from family. 

Treatment is more effective when clients do the following: 

  • Provide the care team with essential details about their daily life
  • Identify and share with the care team any potential underlying issues affecting mental health 
  • Rely on clinicians to provide vital information about substance use disorder (SUD) and various treatment options 

Clinicians respect client autonomy by providing the information and resources they need to make educated decisions about their recovery and treatment. 

How Do Clients Play an Active Role in Non-Residential Treatment? 

Non-residential treatment provides clients with multiple opportunities to build healthy relationships with clinicians, peers, and loved ones. 

Some of the ways clients play an active role in non-residential treatment include: 

  • Relaying changes in thoughts, behaviors, and moods to their care team 
  • Providing context for triggers to reduce the risk of relapse 
  • Ensuring the care team is aware of any potential problems or underlying issues

Collaboration between clients and clinicians is a key part of the recovery process at The Redpoint Center. The care team works together to ensure clients receive the support they need to meet their unique needs during every level of care. 

Family Participation in Treatment Planning

Clients with severe, complex, or persistent SUD often benefit from family participation in all stages of recovery. Loved ones also provide the care team with additional insights, information, and details about client symptoms and their past experiences. 

Family participation in treatment does the following: 

  • Educates loved ones on the realities of substance abuse and recovery 
  • Reduces pressure and stress on clients 
  • Ensures families and clients are better prepared to manage long-term sobriety after treatment

Family therapy and other family support services also help to ensure a healthy dynamic between loved ones during treatment. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), “When a family member is experiencing a mental or substance use disorder, it can affect more than just the person in need of recovery.” Therapy provides clients and their loved ones with a safe space to address any issues caused by substance abuse. 

The Primary Benefits of Personalized Care

Clinicians at The Redpoint Center use psychoeducation and other tools to ensure clients and their families have the facts they need to make educated choices during treatment planning. According to Frontiers in Psychiatry, “Knowledge of long-term recovery after substance use disorder (SUD) is essential to personalized care.”

Some of the primary benefits of personalized care include:

  • Increased effectiveness of treatment 
  • Reduced stress for the client and their family 
  • Increased engagement between client and care team 

Personalized care gives clients access to the treatments and services they need to address challenges unique to their recovery.
