The three phases of addiction treatment.
Everyone has their own set of circumstances and a drug/alcohol counselor will make sure you find a solution that works best for you.
Phase 1 – Drug Detox (sometimes optional)
The first part is the stabilization. If you’ve been abusing for a long time, and you are physically addicted, then you may require more intensive monitoring, which may include medication. A doctor is present at this level of care and it happens before you enter into inpatient rehab. Detox can last for a week, sometimes a few days longer and sometimes a few days shorter.
Not all addicts need to detox!
Phase 2 – Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation, or rehab, can be used to help a person recover from addictions, injuries, and even physical or mental illnesses.
However, drug rehab programs are usually the most common types of rehab.
People addicted to drugs often need additional care and assistance that drug rehab provides. Inpatient rehab has a much higher success rate than outpatient rehab or local AA/NA meetings.
Consider Inpatient rehab over anything else!
Phase 3 – Aftercare
Lastly, there is a reintegration phase where you’ll transition back into the community and family environment while utilizing the coping and recovery skills you learned during rehab.
How Successful is Drug Rehab?
Overcoming drug addiction is proportional to the length of stay in a treatment program, the quality of the program, and the addict’s willingness to get and stay sober. Ninety-day treatments are far more successful than 30-day programs. Your health insurance can most likely cover the cost of treatment.
Ninety day programs have shown to be much more successful with over double, sometimes even triple the success rates. The key is customization. Treating individuals based on their needs rather than a cookie cutter program offers higher success rates.
Your first point of contact for seeking help with addiction
Step 1. Drug Rehab Admission
The first step is to call admissions. Part of the admission process happens over the phone by calling 866-646-1613. An intake counselor will discuss your current situation, assess your needs, discuss payment options and then coordinate placement for you.
Nationwide placement (away from co-dependent friends and family) is almost always a positive experience.
When you arrive at an inpatient treatment center
Upon arrival, you’ll meet with an intake counselor, who will get you all squared away. Even before arriving to inpatient treatment, the intake is very crucial in deciding when, where, how long the program should be for you.
Intake counselors will provide an orientation to the program, walk clients through the admission process so that expectations can be set and met.
Inpatient rehab is a safe and comfortable place.
The individualized treatment plan
After the treatment intake process and admission, the person entering rehab will see medical staff members who will assess one’s physical and mental health. This step helps develop the individualized treatment plan.
To give an idea of how long the medical detox may last, what kinds of therapy to implement afterward, so on and so forth.
Step 2. Medical Detox
As mention above, medical detox lasts 4 to 7 days depending on the substance that needs to be worked on, to get the alcohol and drugs out of the system. Board certified providers safely manage the detox to prevent withdrawal symptoms, which is critical.
Counseling, there are several different types offered and it depends on the patient needs. It may be a large group, may be a small group, it could be individual and/or a combination of those.
The family is crucial in the treatment process as they’re the ones who are also severely affected by the addiction. Top inpatient programs offer family involvement to help loved ones deal with the effects of substance abuse in their family.
Step 3. Aftercare
Aftercare is also critical. After you complete inpatient treatment, you’ll be provided with an aftercare plan. Well before the completion of inpatient rehab, counselors will assist you towards a smooth transition to life outside. This includes individualized recommendations for continuing care after inpatient treatment.
Once again, this may include group sessions, individual sessions. To help improve your success, you can follow the program schedule, be very honest in counseling, and view the rehab staff as allies and not enemies. They are simply there to help. Inpatient rehab aids your recovery by showing you how to eating healthy, participating in physical activity, learning relaxation and stress reduction techniques.
Your family can get involved without interfering, and be supportive without being controlling. They can attend family meetings and participate in the counseling too. Your family members can take an honest look at their own lifestyle so that they’re not enabling you.
Committing to aftercare as a family will help with long term success.
