Help Me Find a Drug Rehab Center

All about Drug Treatment in Ardmore

Use and abuse of drugs is not only detrimental to the persons health, but also, has far reaching effects on the mental stability of the person. Drugs cause problems the user as well as to all those that care about him. Addiction has often torn many families apart. Fortunately help can be obtained, however the first step towards recovery lies in accepting that there is a drug abuse problem. This is where the value of a loving and supportive family becomes apparant. In absence of a support group, it is difficult for an addict to find enough courage to accept the existence of a problem. Loved ones are often a motivating factor which leads the addict toward the path of recovery.

Is Going To A Rehab Center Necessary?

Yes. The process of drug rehabilitation is incredibly complicated and requires the help of skilled professionals. Also, the entire recovery process requires a high level of commitment and dedication, which is more feasible in the supervised atmosphere of a drug rehab center.

Going to a rehab facility in Ardmore will let the patient mingle with people suffering from similar or worse cases of addiction. This gives patients hope and assurance that they are not alone.

How Long Does it Take to Complete A Drug Rehab In Ardmore?

The duration of a drug rehab program depends on the type and severity of addiction and on the willingness of the addict to work with the program. A simple detoxification program takes around three days or so. However, cleansing the body of existing drugs is not the only motive of a rehab center.

The main aim of any rehab facility in Ardmore is to ensure that the person is drug-free, and capable of living a healthy productive life with little or no chance of a relapse. There is no particular time limit to drug treatment, it depends on the individual. Some individuals in recovery find it beneficial to attend meetings and support groups long after their stay in the rehab. Others might choose to quit the program after detoxification and recovery from painful withdrawal symptoms.

Most rehab centers in Ardmore offer either short term treatment or long term residential treatment. In short term treatment, the addict resides in the rehabilitation facility for a period of one or two months. During this time, the patient goes through a complete detoxification and is educated about addiction and its various causes. The patient receives training on handling peer pressure, stress and is encouraged to talk about personal issues. A short term residential program is more effective than solely a three to five day detox, and greatly minimizes the chance of a relapse.

A long term rehabilitation facility stretches for three months to a year or more. Usually addicts with a history of relapse are recommended for such a program. This facility encourages addicts to live independently by letting them take part in household tasks, learn vocational skills while also participating in group therapy. Living in a long term residential program acclimatizes addicts with the idea of adjusting in normal society after the rehab program. Such facilities are intended to lower the rate of relapses.

In Closing

An ideally suited drug rehabilitation program should treat a patient's current addiction, as well as take steps to prevent relapses. Along with therapy it is important that addicts be treated with care and respect to help encourage them through the program.
