The Stages of Rehabilitation
An alcohol or drug rehab facility involves a process that has several different stages including:
Patients will need to be assessed by therapists, doctors, counselors, and other staff when they enter rehabilitation facilities. Each unique individual will require an individualized treatment plan.
The patient’s body may need to rid itself of harmful substances in a detoxification process, depending on the substance the patient is addicted to. This process can be challenging, and it requires medical supervision.
The majority of the work happens here. Programs will combine cognitive behavioral therapy, 12-step programs, family therapy, group therapy, and individual therapy to find the best pathway to recovery for each individual patient.
All of the work the patient has done at the facility will be taken with him or her through the aftercare process. In this process, the patient learns how to apply everything he or she has learned to his or her life.
“I never thought that I would be able to stop using OxyContin. I got to the point where I was stealing them from my mother who suffers from a chronic pain condition. I wasn’t in control of my life. The pills were running my life. They had become more important to me than my job, my family, my friends, my boyfriend. I was lying to people and manipulating people to be able to keep taking my pills. Not only was I completely addicted, but I had also become completely dependent. I went through the detoxification process at The Recovery Village, and they really helped me through the difficult process. I felt supported, and I felt comfortable with all of their medical advice and supervision. And then they really took me through all of the psychological and emotional work that I needed to do in order to really look at and treat my addiction. Now I am in a place where I am able to really do the things that I need and want to do in life. All of my relationships are so much healthier than they used to be. All of my loved ones have seen a real difference in my attitude and my life. I am on the road to long-term recovery, and I have never been happier.”
