Drug Rehab That’s Customized for You
If you are struggling with a drug addiction, many treatment programs offer customized care made just for you. They’ll analyze the type of substances you have used, your physical and mental health issues, and social and family conditions to create a treatment plan to meet your needs.
The first step to recovery is usually entering a detoxification facility where you are prepared for the therapeutic dimension of rehab. Rehab treatment programs generally last 28, 60 or 90 days, depending on your needs. Usually, the longer a substance abuser stays in a rehab program, the more effective the treatment will be. In addition, the longer someone stays in rehab, the better equipped they will be to handle situations in the real world and return to a life of sobriety.
Before rehab can begin, the substance abuser needs to cleanse their body from the drugs and alcohol that are afflicting them. This process is called detox or detoxification. Withdrawal is a result of detox. Anytime an addict stops using an addictive substance, their body goes through painful withdrawals to compel them to use again. The main advantage of detox centers is that they are medically monitored and live-in facilities. Substance abusers can rest assured that they will receive the care they need and medications to ease the pain of their withdrawals.
Successful Drug Rehab Methods
Rehab therapy methods come in all shapes and sizes. The goal of each being to empower an addict to overcome their addiction, and lead a drug-free life.
Group and individual therapy are both effective forms of treatment, and each address the internal conflict that leads an addict to turn to abusing substances as a means of escape. For the recovering addicts who are more comfortable sharing their experiences and struggles with their peers, group therapy may be more appealing to them. Individual therapy is for those who prefer one-on-one counseling with a therapist or sponsor. These methods both hold the recovering addict accountable and they are both therapeutic.
Cognitive behavior therapy is effective in that it pertains to the awareness of the impact of drugs on an addict’s body and on their life. Additional therapy methods include equine, yoga and music therapy.
