Dual Diagnosis Treatment Programs in Pennsylvania

A residential drug rehab center is often the most recommended approach to substance abuse recovery in a medically supervised and safe environment. Shielded from the temptations of the outside world, a residential drug rehab center protects a substance abuser from being tempted to buy or use drugs, avoid triggers, and prevent situations that often lead to relapse. While living in a rehab facility for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, a patient working hard on his/her recovery can feel secure knowing that they have around-the-clock support to help guide them back on the road to sobriety – a virtal element that an outpatient rehab program often lacks.

A residential drug rehab center is a three step process. Detox, rehabilitation, and continued care are the three general steps for curing drug addiction. First, a patient must eliminate the accumulated toxins that have built up in their system during years of substance abuse. Complete withdrawal of the drug of choice may cause physical effects such as tremors, nausea, sweating, loss of appetite, anxiety, and hallucinations. After detox a patient is ready for an individualized drug rehab treatment program. Intensive therapies combined with exercise routines help restore one's physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

A continued care program, a highly recommended component in the process, is often needed after a patient completes their stay at a residential drug rehab center. Usually a sponsor is needed to help a recovering addict remain sober. A sponsor is often a recovering addict that empathizes with what their client is thinking and feeling. There may be times when an addict needs advice from their sponsor when he or she feels that a relapse will occur, and begin the cycle all over again. When certain emotional triggers lead an addict off the path of sobriety, the sponsor is ready-at-hand to guide them toward the right decisions.

An outpatient rehab center allows an addict to attend daily therapy sessions and later return home, often on a scheduled weekly basis. These programs focus on learning skills to remain sober. Group therapy allows the patient to realize that they're not alone in their drug addiction problem. An outpatient treatment program usually lasts about a month depending on the individual. An outpatient rehab center can also help addicts find employment and establish how to function normally in the workplace and society.

So how do you know which kind of facility will work best for you? Each patient has their own set of emotional and physical concerns that need to be addressed. Speaking with a counselor can help determine what the best course of action is./p>
