Drug abuse and addiction often take a toll on not only the problem user, but everyone involved in that person's life as well. Financial ruin, relationship problems, loss of employment, and health consequences, to name a few, cause the recovery process to be all the more difficult. And you may think it's the end of the world, but there is always hope. You can either let substance abuse take control of your life or you can do something about it. No matter what the circumstances are, when it comes to drug dependency and addiction, help can be found at a professional drug rehab center.
A drug rehab center is designed to help people with substance abuse disorders get sober and stay clean. It may take years of substance abuse before an addict realizes they have a problem that needs to be corrected. Becoming sober may also take some time depending on the severity of the drug abuse problem. There are often underlying emotional issues that need to be identified in order to solve the causes of the addiction. Holistic, group, and individual therapy techniques are used to explore why drugs became such an overwhelming problem.
Many people begin using drugs as an experiment or a way to fit in with peers. Others may start using as a way to help cope with a negative domestic situation or to deal with stress at school. At first, drugs may seem like a solution to your problems, but ultimately they strip away everything you always cared about, one layer at a time. When you've come to the point in your life where you need to turn for help, a drug rehab center may be the last stop before it's too late. Yet sometimes all we need is to be guided toward the correct path, and with time we can recover our health and sobriety.
Drug rehab is usually a three step process. First a patient needs to detox. Detox is stopping all drug usage in order to remove the toxins that have accumulated through years of substance abuse. Withdrawal effects can be severe and include severe shaking, sweating, tremors, hallucinations, nausea, sleeplessness, and loss of appetite. Detox can take up to a week or perhaps even longer depending on the individual. Sometimes medications are needed to help with the withdrawal process.
After detox a patient will follow a drug treatment program that usually lasts up to 30 days in a residential setting, depending on the individual. An initial assessment with a professional counselor can determine the most effective treatment plan for a particular individual. All recovery programs and various therapies, although different in approach and style, are designed to help a patient achieve long term sobriety, and get clean for good. Some therapies work better for others, so many relapse is often expected in the first few attempts in rehab. This is part of the recovery process, so it’s important to not get discouraged from a few relapses. After a patient has completed their rehabilitation, a continued care program (also known as aftercare services) is recommended as a way to deal with feelings of weakness that may result in relapse.
