Drug Rehab and Addiction Treatment Programs

Drug and Alcohol Intervention

The first step in the road to a successful recovery from addictions to drugs and alcohol, interventions are meant to be a “wakeup call” to those that are suffering from addiction. This wakeup call is intended to show the addict just how far along and bad the addiction or drug and alcohol abuse has become. Admitting the problem and seeking treatment for the problem is the goal of both family and individual interventions. More on Drug and Alcohol Intervention >>

Alcohol Detox

Alcohol is a chemical that can be quite dangerous to humans, though many in the world consume small amounts of it on a regular basis. Overuse of alcohol throughout the years and binge drinking can leave the body physically addicted to the presence of alcohol in the system; in this situation, alcohol must be slowly detoxified from the system through alcohol detox. If the alcohol detox is not performed correctly in a medical setting, the risk of seizures, long-term health problems, and even death can occur. More on Alcohol Detox >>

Certain drugs and chemicals have extremely strong effects on the human body and mind. Drugs such as Crack-Cocaine, Prescription Painkillers, Methamphetamine, Oxycontin, and heroin can go very quickly from being used recreationally to a full on addiction. These drugs cause such strong addictions in the body, that drug detoxification is necessary to safely rid the existing drugs from the system, before entering treatment for the drug use.

Drug Rehab Counseling

While there are many factors that go into the overall recovery of a recovering addict, one factor that must be present in all drug and alcohol treatment and drug rehab programs is the implementation of drug and alcohol rehab counseling. Whether in a group or an individual setting, counseling helps the recovering addict cope with the changes that are occurring, and inspires hope for a future of sobriety.

Chronic Pain Management

There are a great many of people that have injuries or medical conditions that cause moderate to severe pain on a daily basis. The pain is so great that these individuals often begin a regimen of medications and painkillers to ease the pain throughout their days. When an individual has been taking medications for pain for many years, the likeliness of addiction to those painkillers becomes increasingly probable. Managing pain and balancing the addictive chemicals used to treat this pain is the goal of Chronic Pain Management. More on Chronic Pain Management >>

Depression Treatment

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects millions around the world every year. Depression is very closely-linked to drug use and alcohol abuse; a depressed individual has the tendency to drink or use drugs in an attempt to self-medicate the problem, while drugs and alcohol have the tendency to cause, strain, or increase depression in many individuals.

Dual Diagnosis in Drug Rehab

Mental illnesses and disorders such as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Melancholia, Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, or Bipolar Disorder are highly prevalent in those that are abusing drugs and alcohol, or have an addiction. These Dual Diagnoses – or Co-Occurring Disorders – need to both be addressed during treatment for addiction. The mental issues and addiction issues are so closely linked, that treating both consecutively provides a more successful recovery. More on Dual Diagnosis in Drug Rehab >>

Treatment Program Types

There are many different types of treatment programs for addiction, and many different facilities with different approaches and some very unique treatment techniques. People are very diverse, so the methodologies of treatment used to treat these diverse people must also be diverse. From Equine Therapy to Music Counseling, there are countless addiction treatment programs being utilized in the mental health and addiction treatment fields. More on Treatment Program Types >>

Alternative Drug Treatment Programs

While there are many treatment types, programs, facilities, and counseling techniques that go into popular addiction treatment programs, some individuals opt for more natural and holistic treatment options. Alternative Drug Treatment Programs employ many natural remedies such as diet, exercise, meditation, yoga, and other techniques. More on Alternative Drug Treatment Programs >>

Choosing a Drug Treatment Program

Remember when choosing any type of drug treatment program you should look at the backgrounds of the staff, the history of the type of treatment, scientific and medical basis for any statements about the treatment, and openness. Very few legitimate drug rehab programs will give you a specific success rate number or “cure rate,” because they know this is inaccurate at best and purposely misleading at worst. Therefore, it’s a good idea to look at credentials, acceptance by the treatment community, and medical safety when choosing a program. Find a Drug Treatment Program >>
