Help Me Find a Drug Rehab Center

All about Drug Treatment in Edison

Drug use and abuse is not only harmful to physical health, but also, has far reaching effects on the psychological stability of the addict. Drugs affect the user as well as to all those that care about him. Substance abuse has ripped many families apart. Fortunately help can be obtained, but the first step towards getting help lies in accepting that there is an addiction problem. This is where the value of a loving and supportive family and friends becomes apparant. In absence of a support group, it is very hard for the addict to find enough courage to accept help for their problem. Family acts as a motivating factor which pushes the addict toward the path of recovery.

Is Going To A Rehab Facility Necessary?

Absolutely! The process of drug rehabilitation is extremely complex and requires the help of skilled professionals. Additionally, the entire recovery process demands a high level of commitment and dedication, which is more feasible in the structured atmosphere of a drug rehab center.

Going to a rehab facility in Edison 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 Edison?

The time frame of a drug rehab center depends on the type and seriousness of addiction and on the willingness of the addict to work with the program. A simple detox program takes around three days . However, cleansing the body of existing drugs is not the only goal of a rehab center.

The main aim of any rehab facility in Edison is to ensure that the patient is drug-free, and able to live a healthy productive life without risk of a relapse. There is no particular time limit to drug treatment, it depends on the specific person. Some might find it helpful 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 Edison offer either short term programs or long term residential treatment. In short term treatment, the addict lives in the rehab facility for a period of one or two months. During this time, the patient undergoes 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 problems. A short term residential program is more beneficial than solely a three day detox, and greatly reduces the chance of a relapse.

A long term rehab facility stretches for three months to a year or more. Usually addicts with a history of relapse are recommended for this kind of program. This facility promotes addicts to live independently by letting them take part in household responsibilities, learn vocational skills in addition to group therapy. Living in a long term rehabilitation program acclimatizes addicts with the idea of adjusting in normal society after the rehab program. Such facilities are designed 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 respect and care to help see them through the program.
