Overview

Most rehabilitation centers follow a standard framework of therapies in their daily schedule. Rehab centers are often very organized and structured which minimizes uncertainty and stress among the residents, making it the most supportive and safest environment for fostering recovery.

The day at the rehab usually starts with waking up early for a healthy breakfast and morning classes such as yoga or meditation to start the day with a relaxed mind. This is in alignment with one of rehab’s goals, which is to develop new, healthy habits with the intention that they will remain part of their routine even post-discharge. After breakfast, they may have a group session led by a trained psychologist surrounding topics related to the treatment process, addiction and recovery. The sessions help the addicts gain insight into the issues, surroundings and people in their lives that have contributed to their addiction. Thus, these sessions help them uncover their destructive patterns of thinking and behaviour, while also learning how to cope with their triggers.

The middle of the day often consists of the most intensive aspect of treatment, and is filled individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy sessions. Alternative therapies may also be provided such as art therapy, music therapy, biofeedback, neurofeedback, exercise programs, etc. Free time is also offered for a couple of hours in the rehab during which the residents may engage in recreational activities such as playing basketball, pool, volleyball, or spend their time reading, journaling, or meditating. The evening may have another short group session, typically, a 12-step program, followed by early bedtime hours to ensure healthy habit-building and more energy for the residents to participate in the rehab treatment program to their fullest.

How effective is Rehabilitation Center for Drug Addiction?

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.

What are the benefits of Rehabilitation Center for Drug Addiction?

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.

How does it work?

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.
