Help Me Find a Drug Rehab Center

All about Drug Rehab in Bristol

Use and abuse of drugs is not only harmful to physical health, but also, has tremendous effects on the psychological stability of the person. Drugs affect the user as well as their close friends and family. Substance abuse has often torn many families apart. Fortunately help can be obtained, but the initial step towards getting help lies in accepting that there is a drug abuse problem. This is where the importance of a loving and supportive family and friends becomes evident. In absence of a support system, it can be difficult for an addict to find enough courage to accept the existence of a problem. Family and friends can be a motivating factor which pushes the addict toward the path of recovery.

Is Attending A Rehab Facility Necessary?

Yes. The process of addiction recovery is extremely complex and requires the help of skilled professionals. Additionally, the entire recovery process demands a high level of commitment, which is more possible in the structured atmosphere of a drug rehab center.

Going to a rehab facility in Bristol 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 Bristol?

The time frame of a drug rehabilitation facility 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 approximately three days or so. However, detoxing the body of existing drugs is not the only motive of a rehabilitation center.

The main motive of any rehab facility in Bristol is to make certain that the patient is free from drugs, and able to live a productive and healthy life with little or no chance of a relapse. There is no particular time frame to drug rehabilitation, it depends on the individual. Some might find it helpful to attend meetings and support groups long after their stint in the rehab. Others might choose to quit the program after successful detoxification and recovery from painful withdrawal symptoms.

Most rehab centers in Bristol offer either short term programs or long term programs. 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 how it occurs. The patient receives training on handling stress, peer pressure and is encouraged to talk about personal issues. A short term residential program is more effective than solely a three day detox, and greatly minimizes the chance of a relapse.

A long term rehab facility stretches for three months to a year or more. Usually addicts prone to relapses are recommended for such a program. This facility encourages addicts to live independently by letting them take part in household responsibilities, 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 center 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.
