What is a Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

in Core information

Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitationi is the processes of medical and psychotherapeutic treatment, for dependency on hallucinogenic or psychoactive substances such as legal prescription drugs, alcohol, and street drugs such as cocaine or amphetamines.
The idea is to enable the individual addicted to cease substance abuse use, in order to stop the psychological, material, business, physical, and legal consequences that are caused.
When you or a family members reach's out for help from a professional alcohol and drug rehab program, ther heling process begin.

The first stage of your recovery, treatment initiation. Whether you seek help voluntarily or are forced by circumstances to enter rehab, your recovery process will begin with you initiating professional treatment.
In the early hours and days of your rehab you probably will have some ambivalent feelings about giving up your drug of choice permanently and you may think that your substance abuse problem is not as bad as others. Beware. Ambivalence and denial can be your worse enemies in the first days of your recovery.
Once you have made a commitment to continue treatment for your drug or alcohol problem, you will enter the second stage of rehab known as early abstinence. This can be one of the toughest stage to cope with because of many factors, including continued withdrawal symptoms, physical cravings, psychological dependence and a host of triggers that can tempt you into a relapse and go back for more.

It is during this early abstinence stage that your trained addiction counselor or therapist will begin to teach you the coping skills that you need to begin to lead a sober lifestyle. The tools that you learn to use now will help you throughout your recovery fro, drugs or alcohol.

After approximately 60-90 days of continual abstinence, you will move from the early abstinence stage of recovery jnown as the third stage, their maintaining abstinence. If you started in a residential treatment program, you will now move to the continuing or follow-up counseling phase of your rehab program on an outpatient basis.
One focus of the 3rd stage of rehab is obviously to maintain abstinence by avoiding a relapse. You will learn the warning signs and the steps that can lead up to a relapse.
