If you are suffering from health and family issues due to substance abuse, it is time that you seek professional help. To recover from any kind of substance abuse problem, a rehabilitation center is the best solution. With various therapy sessions and other treatments, these recovery centers play an important role in stopping the cycle of abuse, treatment, and relapse.
All substance abuse rehab programs should start with a physical exam during the intake process because many addictions require a medically monitored detox. The withdrawal symptoms of alcohol and drugs can be painful, uncomfortable or, in rare cases, deadly if not treated properly.
Rehab also should include cognitive behavioral therapy to teach healthy coping skills and more personal therapy to address past traumas that could have led to drug or alcohol abuse. At the end of treatment, we refer you to an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for aftercare to help you remain sober away from the rehab center.
Finding the Right Rehab
To choose the right rehab center, the following are the key points to be considered:
The process starts when our concerned doctor, therapist, counselor or psychologist interviews the client to identify the severity of addiction and type of substance abuse treatment needed. To understand the reasons for the dependency or addiction, the staff investigates the client’s drug history and physical and mental health. They also evaluate the client’s ability to afford treatment.
Detoxification is an important stage of addiction treatment that is done in the beginning. The goal is to rid the body of all the toxins and traces of drugs and/or alcohol. The length of the detox process varies from one individual to another according to the type and severity of the addiction.
The next phase after detoxification is rehabilitation. Rehab treatments include cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, meditation, spa treatments, anger and stress management, educational programs, relapse prevention sessions, individual and family counseling and more.
4. Ongoing Recovery
Recovery continues even after the treatment is over. For some, it may be a lifelong process. If the client doesn’t follow the aftercare plan, the chance of relapse is much higher. The center explains the importance of a recovery and aftercare plan before the client leaves the facility.
