Drug rehab is a center that provides treatment for
individuals hooked on drugs. Now more than ever
before addicts are recovering from the grips
of addiction. Through comprehensive drug programs
patients are now able to regain their lives and become productive
members of society.
Treatments vary from program to program; the different methods include; Christian rehab centers, 12 steps based programs, Therapeutic Community or behavioral centers, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapies, dual diagnosis treatment, eastern philosophy (meditation, yoga, and acupuncture) or Narconon/scientology based rehabs. Some programs may combine multiple treatment methods and philosophies such as the 12 steps program with psychotherapies, dual diagnosis and/or some eastern philosophy. Some Christian programs also offer 12 steps with treatment. Other drug rehabs boast of being holistic which by definition is treating the whole person---mind, body and spirit. So if you take that and apply it to the Christian drug program for instance, they focus on the spiritual, mental, emotional, social and physical aspect of the individual, but believe every true healing begins at the core or heart, which first entails reconciling with God through His Son Jesus Christ. Christian Drug Rehab
treatment centers accommodate schedules and
housing according to their curriculums and often
vary from facility to facility. Most drug rehabs
offer inpatient treatment, outpatient programs,
hospital rehabilitation, or residential treatment center settings.
No single approach is suitable for every individual.
For rehabilitation to be most effective, the
rehab program should match the needs of their
patients. Therefore, it is critical to select
the treatment facility qualified to address all of the patient’s individual needs. Doing so will significantly increases the addict’s
chances of sustaining a successful recovery. Effective rehab centers
are able handle and facilitate each of their patient’s needs,
not just drug abuse, but also any other associated problems such
as mental health, medical, social, vocational, and legal issues.
An important role one can take when trying to help
a loved one enter treatment is to locate the
right facility and have the program arraignments
made early on. Doing so before the addict's has
even agreed to receive help is the more proactive
and wiser approach. Because a person with an
addiction to alcohol and/or drugs may be temporarily
ambivalent about wanting to participate in rehabilitation,
but having the opportunity once they are ready
is essential. An addict can and usually will
change his or her mind about entering treatment
relatively quick, and the chances of recovery
could slip away fast if a rehab is not available
or accessible at that particular time.
The amount of time spent in treatment is of major
importance and will have an impact on determining
the outcome effectiveness. The most adequate
period-of-time appropriate for an individual
staying in rehab depends on some factors, such
as his or her underlying problems and needs, quantity and type of
drugs abused, and the length of addiction.
Research indicates that more time spent in treatment significantly improves an individual’s ability to function productively while sober, and actually eases the battle of sustaining a clean and productive lifestyle.
