Drug rehabs programs provide the help addicted individuals need to end their dependence on drugs or alcohol. There are several reasons why a person would choose to enroll in a drug rehab program. They may not have enough motivation to quit in their home situation, they may not receive the support necessary to stop using from the people around them or they may have tried to quit on their own and have not be able to find lasting sobriety. Enrolling in a drug rehab program provides the recovering addict a drug and alcohol-free environment where they can focus on their recovery. Every drug rehab program has its own methods of treatment; but, in general much attention is given to the addicted individual themselves. There will likely be individual or group counseling to help the recovering individual uncover and address the areas of their life that sparked their urge to use drugs or alcohol.
Addiction to drugs and alcohol affects more than just the person who is abusing the substance. The toll substance abuse and addiction has on the user’s family, loved ones, friends and co-workers often goes unnoticed by the substance user. It is only after they have stopped using that they are able to clearly see the damage and heartbreak their self-destructive actions have caused. While the addicted person is receiving treatment at a drug rehab program it is important for those close to the recovering individual get help processing through their emotions and feelings about their loved one. They will also need guidance on how to structure their new sober relationship with their rehabilitated loved one. This benefits both the recovered person and the loved one because having clear rules and consequences and an open line of communication about what is happening day to day means that nothing gets “swept under the rug” and there will be no more “turning a blind eye”.
The ultimate goal of a drug rehab program is to enable the individual to achieve lasting sobriety; the short term goal of a drug rehab is to help the individual stop using the substances they are dependent on, uncover why the individual choose drug or alcohol use to solve their problems and teach them new healthy ways to handle stress and challenges that no longer involves using drugs or alcohol. Today, millions of addicted individuals have successfully recovered from drug addiction because they received the right help and information. Generally speaking, the more help an individual is given to conquer their drug addiction, the more successful their results will be. Additionally, research has shown that those who stay in a drug rehab center longer than 3 months have higher success rates in achieving lasting sobriety than those who stay a shorter amount of time.
