The environment offered by the rehab centers is extremely supportive for a drug addicts’ recovery because of the various therapies and lifestyle changes offered on a daily basis that become a lifestyle for the addict post-discharge, as well as the lack of triggering stressors that the addict may have in their normal life that could hinder their recovery process.
The individual with drug addiction gets insight into various underlying issues that fuel their substance abuse in individual and group therapy sessions, work on changing certain family dynamics and strengthen relationships in the family that act as a support system for their recovery in family therapy sessions, learn to abstain from using drugs with the help of psychiatric medications and a controlled and monitored environment, and make healthy habits part of their lifestyle that provide stability and motivation in their life to maintain sobriety.
The process will start with an intake of information regarding the individual with the drug addiction. On admission to the rehab, the individual will be given assessments by professionals to evaluate all factors related to their addiction in order to design a personalized treatment plan for them. The individual will go through a detoxification process to clean their body of the drug while being helped with medications to manage their withdrawal symptoms. During their residence in the rehab, they will be made to follow a set routine which could include various therapies that help them gain insight into what causes and ways to overcome their addiction. When they find themselves having achieved recovery and have gained confidence in maintaining sobriety, they will be discharged with professionals guiding them with the steps they need to engage in to maintain sobriety in their daily life which could be filled with triggers. Being continuously associated with outpatient programs or 12-step programs is usually recommended to help prevent a relapse.
