Rehab is the Path from Alcohol and Drug Rehab to Recovery.
Alcohol and drug addiction rehab centres are created to provide those suffering from drug addiction, alcoholism and dual disorders with an appropriate environment whereby they may achieve long term recovery.
Such centres can be in the form of Outpatient Drug Rehabs; these use a wide range of treatment modalities including problem-solving group or talk therapy, specialised therapies such as insight-oriented psychotherapy which creates an environment of introspective work, cognitive-behavioural therapy, and 12-step programs. Another option is residential drug and alcohol rehab whereby addicts may stay in treatment facility for anything from two weeks till several months or longer.
Short-term inpatient drug and alcohol rehab programs keep patients up to 30 days in a drug or alcohol treatment centre. Most of these treatment programs focus on medical stabilisation, abstinence, and lifestyle changes. Staff members are primarily medical professionals and counsellors trained in drug and alcohol addiction. This setting tends to be less effective in long-term recovery. Short-Term Residential drug and alcohol rehabs provide intensive but relatively brief residential treatment based on a modified 12-step approach, talk and group therapy. Long-Term residential drug rehabs provide care 24 hours per day, generally in non-clinical settings.
It is common for rehab staff to be in recovery themselves, counsellors’ work personally with each client through the diverse phases of addiction treatment. Ongoing support is also critical as we believe that unless core issues are addressed while in addiction treatment, relapse is possible, therefore likely to erase all the gains made while in drug rehab treatment.
