Evidence-Based Treatment in Costa Mesa

Evidence-based treatment is an approach to healthcare that relies on scientifically proven interventions and techniques to guide patient care and decision-making.

What is Evidence Based Treatment?

Every approach to addiction recovery is formulated to address certain aspects of drug addiction
for each individual, family, and community.

In addition to using standard therapy for recovering addicts, we always bring a holistic approach to our evidence-based treatment program to rebalance the body and mind of each person. Holistic treatments seek to enhance the person’s overall well-being; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We understand addiction affects all areas of life. Therefore, practices
like therapy, nutrition, meditation, and physical exercise are all supplemented into most treatment plans.

Evidence-based practices or treatment methods should incorporate these qualities:

  1. This method has been scientifically studied, and the research has been published in peer-reviewed journals.

  2. Provided the desired outcome(s) regarding the objectives of addiction recovery.

  3. Standardized so we can repeat it. Usually, this means instructions have been printed detailing how the addiction treatment method should be used, with whom, the overall goals of the technique, and any other items needed to complete the method successfully.

  4. This healing method has also been studied in multiple environments, providing consistent and effective results.

  5. A measure has been developed to see how well the implementation of the treatment method is sticking to the initially researched protocol.

Now it’s widely used among professionals as an effective way to allow patients to evaluate, reprocess, and overcome past painful experiences or PTSD symptoms.
