Philadelphia, PA, was one of the first cities in our country to recognize that addiction is a disease, rather than a lifestyle choice, and that it should be treated as such. This is why, in 1972, the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital has started to offer help to those who have substance abuse problems. Since 1972, they have helped those who abuse prescription medication, cocaine addiction, heroin dependency, other drug addiction, or alcoholism; and they have ensured people are able to move towards recovery. For Philadelphia, addiction is seen as a disease that has spiritual, social, psychological, and biological factors. As a result, there is an enhanced understanding of the fact that it has an effect not just on the addicted individual, but also on the family. Furthermore, the city focuses on recovery of spiritual connectedness, social relationships, emotional well-being, mental health, and physical health.
While in 1972, the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital was responsible for the full administration of drug and alcohol treatment services, it has now been taken over by the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, which has spearheaded the Jefferson Substance Abuse Programs. These programs have served as an example of best practice for various other programs, all of which now offer three elements to help people through rehab and detox.
The first element is provided by the outreach programs. Here, individuals who suffer from substance abuse disorders can receive psychiatric and therapeutic services. There is also a focus on co-occurring disorders, for people who also suffer from a mental health problems. Through the outreach program, people can have access to:
The second element is made up of the intensive programs. These are offered both on outpatient and inpatient bases. The outpatient programs last between 12 and 16 weeks, whereby people attend treatment for nine hours per week. Inpatient treatment services are available for those who require even more intensive services. As part of this element, people can receive:
Narcotic Addiction Rehabilitation Program (NARP)
The final element is the NARP program, which is an outpatient program designed for those who seek methadone treatment to help them recover from an opiate addiction. Through NARP, people can have access to:
Put together, these three elements aim to prevent addiction and substance abuse disorders, as well as ensuring that help is available for those already trapped in the cycle of addiction.
