There are a lot of people who feel that drug rehabs are not effective at helping addicted individuals recover. These misconceptions are fuelled by the fact that while some people are able to achieve sobriety the first time they enroll in treatment, a good number of addicted persons will need to go through a few different programs utilizing differing recovery techniques until they find the one that best fits their personal recovery needs.
Current research into drug rehab programs reveals that completing a drug rehab program reduces drug use by forty to sixty percent and dramatically decreases criminal activity during and after treatment is complete. These studies have also found that participation in a drug rehab program reduces the risk of infectious diseases (Hepatitis C and HIV) among intravenous drug users. Additionally, I.V. drug users who enter drug rehab and remain in the program are shown to be six times less likely to become infected with HIV. Lastly, across the board, persons who enter and complete drug rehab are up to forty percent more likely to get and keep a job than their drug using counterparts who do not receive treatment.
