An addiction to drugs or alcohol is serious and a number of treatment options are available to treat it. Drug rehab is a general term for the medical and psychotherapeutic treatments used to rid patients of their addictions to alcohol, street drugs and prescription medication. Drug rehabilitation is necessary in order for patients to recover and avoid further consequences. If you abruptly try to stop taking a medication or other drug after regular or prolonged use, withdrawal symptoms can set in. This is indicative of a physical addiction. Plenty of people avoid getting help with an addiction because they fear withdrawal which can be physically and emotionally painful. A detox is essential to rid the body of the drug, paving the way for patients to recover wholly. Sometimes, it can take the body weeks or months to feel back to normal.
Different Types of Drug Rehab
There are many forms of drug rehab and many programs try to achieve sobriety through various means including 12-step programs, faith-based initiatives, psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy. Rehabs can be long-term or short-term in nature and may be in-patient or out-patient. Support groups, sober houses and extended care facilities are also available. Drug rehab is sometimes mandated by the criminal court system, as a way to provide patients who have committed minor offenses a way to avoid jail and get help. Plenty of people seek drug rehab on their own to put an end to the suffering and pain they’ve endured because of drug or alcohol use.
