If you’re trying to quit using drugs, you know how arduous the task can be. Drug rehabilitation can be a wise option if you are struggling. Our guide helps you learn more about the process and answer common questions associated with rehab.

What Happens in Drug Rehabilitation?

While each program might be unique in structure, the outcome is always the same: helping you refrain from using drugs. On this note, some programs require residential care. While it might seem overwhelming to be away from home, family, and friends, you receive care 24 hours a day–a vital help as you go through detox.

Detox

Detox can be difficult, as you quit using drugs. During this time, your body might experience withdrawal symptoms. However, many programs offer medication to offset these symptoms while allowing your body to heal from the drugs it absorbed. Being in rehab also grants you access to trained medical professionals, who can help you with any struggles you might encounter.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

It is common for people using drugs to have underlying mental health illnesses, such as anxiety, depression, and other disorders. Therefore, our team unearths the root causes of drug use and treats these illnesses. Doing both allows you to focus on recovery by having medications, cognitive-behavioral therapies, and other treatments to put you on the road to recovery.

Daily Structure

One of the most vital aspects of recovery is developing a daily structure that helps you confront the causes of drug use and employ coping techniques when temptation strikes. Our team outlines daily schedules complete with group therapy, individual therapy, family days, nutritional therapy, relapse recovery, mentoring, and much more. Our goal is to equip you with the behaviors and mindset needed to live a healthy, drug-free life once you complete drug rehabilitation.

12 Step Program

We rely on the 12-step program as part of the recovery process. You can complete this through our residential program or attend our outpatient treatment. If you do not want to go through the program, we offer an alternative. It includes group and individual therapies. You’ll also learn coping techniques to tackle your challenges head-on.

How Long Should I Do Drug Rehabilitation?

Most people need at least three months of care to lead to more positive outcomes. When considering residential care, note some of the many positives you’ll receive:

  • You have the time and space to heal without the temptation of drugs
  • You have medical professionals standing by 24 hours a day to assist you, which is essential during detox
  • You undergo group and individual therapy sessions
  • You learn therapies to help you cope with your addictions
  • You have structure with a daily schedule you can incorporate into life after rehab
