How are addicts rehabilitated?

Addicts are rehabilitated based on their level of addiction. The intensity of drug addiction rehabilitation required by different addicts will vary according to the severity of their addictions. When addicts admit themselves or are forcibly admitted, to drug addiction rehabilitation facilities, their physical conditions are evaluated so that an appropriate treatment can be determined. There are different drug addiction rehabilitation programs designed to treat the different levels of addiction.

Detoxification: Detoxification is the first addiction treatment which is done to detoxify the toxins accumulated in the addict’s body due to his or her excessive drug or alcohol consumption. This is done by using detoxifying drugs. Although this treatment seems easy, it comes with extreme complications associated with withdrawal. If detoxification is not done in a proper medical setting, the addict is running the risk of giving up his or her own life. Therefore, addiction recovery should be done only under expert’s supervision. Detoxification is a five to a fourteen-day process of drug deprivation that removes addicts’ immediate compulsions to seek and use drugs. Painful withdrawal symptoms are always a part of this step, but detox is a crucial part of successful recoveries.

Inpatient Treatment: Most addicts who seek first-time treatment attend inpatient programs. They live at their treatment facilities for one to three months and receive fifty or more hours of intensive therapies per week. These therapies primarily involve individual counseling, group discussions, and family counseling.

Individual counseling is particularly effective at creating long-term lifestyle changes in drug addicts. With their counselors’ help, patients uncover the root causes of their drug problems and identify their personal addiction triggers. With this knowledge, they can formulate effective strategies for avoiding and coping with future cravings.

Outpatient Treatment: Some rehab patients will complete their transitions back into normal life with outpatient programs. Outpatient treatment is also a good choice for addicts who experience short relapses. These treatment plans involve just a few hours of therapies per day, and patients are free to spend the rest of their time as they see fit.

Support Groups: Because addiction is a lifelong struggle, many addicts choose to attend community support groups once they complete their clinical treatments. Groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous allow addicts to share their struggles and form accountability partnerships. Overall, participation in these groups is essential for many rehab patients to maintain the lifestyle changes they develop at their clinics


Does rehab work?

Rehab really works if the person attending the rehab is willing to accept the help offered there. However, if the person is forced to be there by family or friends it most likely will not. The reason for this is because the ill person will feel as if they are being sent to the rehab as a punishment. They will not be open to accepting the help that is offered there.

If you are thinking about sending someone to rehab, my suggestion would be to sit the person down and ask them if they are willing to get help. If you try to force them, they will probably end up hating you for it.

How long the process does takes?

Time is our most precious asset, and addicts seeking drug rehab need to know how long it will take to get back on their feet. Unfortunately, drug rehab programs vary in length according to the severity of the addiction, as well as a person’s particular life circumstances. While people who use less addictive substances may require only month-long treatments, addicts with severe physical and psychological dependencies may need nearly a year of combined therapies. Different addicts will also require varying levels of continued recovery efforts after clinical treatment.

What do attendees need during the rehab process?

Checking into an alcohol and drug rehab centre is for most addicts one of the most frightening times they experience. During the rehab process the attendees must be enlightened about the details of the processes and shown lots of care, they must not be discriminated from other well and okay person.

When you first arrive at an alcohol or drug rehab centre, you will have to go through an intake interview. This is your first meeting with a highly skilled therapist. The therapist will ask several very personal questions. Try to cooperate as well as you can with your intake therapist, as your intake will help to stake out the course of your treatment. Your intake therapist will diagnose your alcohol or drug addiction problem as well as any coexisting psychological disorders through the use of very specific standardised criteria.

During or shortly after your intake interview, you will be given a so-called information and orientation packet. The contents of this packet will vary between drug rehab centers, but will always include a Patient’s Bill of Rights or a similar document, which lists numerous rights to which you are entitled by law. Your packet will most likely also include a schedule of activities, information about the alcohol or drug rehab center’s history and goals, insurance details as well as other information that is important to your stay.

During the rehab process, highly skilled therapist provide you with the whole information about the processes of a rehab centre and an assurance of how they will really take good care of you very well.
