Addiction Recovery: Drug Rehab is a Not Always a One Shot Deal

Like many other chronic health issues, drug addiction rehabilitation can take several attempts before finding the right treatment and having lasting success. While some people are able to end their addiction by going “cold turkey” or after their first time to drug rehab, there are many people who need more than one time in treatment to find lasting sobriety. For these individuals, multiple  enrollments in drug rehab is not a sign of weakness or inability to achieve recovery; instead, their need to go through different treatment programs implies that they did not receive enough treatment initially, or, that the program they attended didn’t address all of their issues. This left the client with unresolved underlying issues, making them more susceptible to relapse.

For the majority of addicted people, long-term inpatient drug rehabilitation is needed to put an end to their addiction problems. However, most addicted people choose outpatient or short-term programs because they are more economical and take less time out of their life. While outpatient drug rehab programs and short-term treatment has a place in the field of recovery, they are not ideal solutions for long-term and/or heavily addicted individuals. A person who has been struggling with an addiction problem for some time needs a while to fully withdraw from the substance(s) they are dependent on, time to uncover the underlying issues that drove them to use and time to develop new ways of handling life and daily stress without turning to drugs or alcohol. The process of withdrawal can last several days to over a week and must be completed before the individual is ready to address the personal issues that drove them to use. It takes time for the recovering person to learn, practice and perfect their new life skills; making long-term drug rehab programs an ideal solution.

Narconon Fresh Start has several different long-term residential drug rehab programs to help addicted individuals recover. There is Fort Collins New Life Center in Colorado where clients can receive treatment while being surrounded by picturesque views, nearby parks, rivers and wide open spaces. This Colorado drug rehab is spacious, modern and offers a wide array of recreational activities during the program participant’s free-time.

Located in Nevada, Rainbow Canyon Retreat is an oasis away from client’s previous routines and environment. This program’s main structure is the spacious redwood lodge where program participants gather to dine, relax and share time together. Nestled on 320 beautiful acres, this drug rehab center provides client with plenty of room and lots of healthy ways to spend their free-time when not actively working on their program. Clients enjoy basketball, volleyball, baseball, horse shoes, billiards, ping pong and movies. Home to a professional kitchen, wonderful chefs prepare delicious meals daily for staff and program participants.
