Since causes of substance abuse are a blend of genetic, environmental, and psychological factors, drug addiction is considered a complicated disease. This renders treatment for drug addiction additionally complicated, so it’s essential for clients to receive treatment from skilled experts who apply medically-proven, evidence-based methods.
Against medical and scientific evidence, many people still mistakenly think that drug abuse is a personality deficiency or weakness. Today, health professionals refer to substance abuse as substance abuse disorder, encompassing all alcohol and drugs. Substance abuse disorders are regarded as long-term illnesses (like diabetes) that can never be ‘cured,’ rather should be managed and monitored. To help our clients conquer addiction safely and successfully, we employ professional, certified substance addiction recovery personnel.
Cooperation is Key
Rehab is a thorough process. In rehab, or rehabilitation, an addict withdraws from their drug of abuse, takes part in several types of counseling and behavioral modifications and learns how to avoid relapses and temptation. Because each person is different, each person’s rehab treatment is going to be a bit different. No two people will have the exact same experience. But the goals of rehab are always to get the patient out of addiction and back in control. Addiction hinders your ability to make decisions which will help you. Rehab will give you back that ability.
Have you tried to talk to a family member about your addiction only to be met with conflict or friction? That’s not unusual. Social situations often make seeking help more challenging. Not everyone understands the best ways to help someone who is addicted. Not everyone knows the best steps to take, or the best questions to ask. But a caring support staff from a qualified facility will let you talk about the issues surrounding your addiction. They know the best questions to ask and will listen to your concerns. They should be able to recommend the best treatments for your addiction. You don’t have to fight your addiction alone any longer.
It’s a Process
Drug rehab is an ongoing process which can last for the patient’s lifetime. Addiction can be managed and regulated, but never ‘cured.’ Many different illnesses, like hypertension and diabetes, cannot be cured. But they can be managed and regulated so that the ill person is not a slave to the disease. A good rehab program will give you the skills you need to manage your addiction. You will learn the best mental processes for dealing with temptation. If you need it, you will have access to medication that can help you. As with any treatable disease, you will be able to live a normal life with the proper safeguards in place. If temptation strikes, you won’t be helpless anymore. You will know the damages of addiction. You will know about the loss of control that comes with addiction. And this time, you won’t be a slave to your addiction. But it begins with reaching out.
