The Rehabilitation Process
Seeking treatment at a drug or alcohol rehab facility will involve a multi-faceted process. This process includes:
AssessmentWhen a patient enters a rehabilitation facility, they will need to be assessed by doctors, therapists, counselors, and other supporting staff members, and a treatment plan will need to be determined. Each patient is going to need a different plan of action depending on his or her situation.
DetoxificationDepending on the drug the patient has become dependent on, there may need to be a detoxification process so that the body can eliminate harmful substances. This is sometimes a very difficult process, and the patient may need to have medical supervision during this process.
RehabilitationHere is where the bulk of the work happens. Most programs will provide a mix of cognitive behavioral therapy, individual and group therapy, family therapy, and 12 step programs to find the most effective way to treat the addiction of each individual patient.
AftercareAftercare involves a process in which all of the work a patient does during rehabilitation is not left at the facility. With aftercare, the patient will learn how to apply what he or she has learned to his or her everyday life.
“Three years ago, I was homeless on the streets of Philadelphia without any hope that my life would get better. Now, I live in a beautiful home, I am engaged to a wonderful woman, and I have an exciting career. If someone would have told me then what my life would look like now, I would never believe them. My life has been undergone such a radical transformation, and none of this would have happened for me had I not taken that first step and sought treatment for my addiction.”
– Peter L.
“I have had a drinking problem for decades. I tried to get sober on my own so many times, I lost count. Two years ago, I was fired from my job, I was kicked out of my home, and my ex-husband told me he wasn’t going to let me be in my children’s lives anymore. This was the beginning of my low point. The only reason I was able to take back control of my life and finally get sober was because I was able to reach out and seek professional treatment for the first time in my life.”
– Sheila M.
