Help Me Find a Drug Rehab Center

All about Drug Treatment in Powell

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. Drug abuse and addiction has often torn many families apart. Fortunately help is available, but the initial step towards recovery starts with admitting that there is a drug abuse problem. This is where the value of a loving and supportive family becomes evident. In absence of a support group, it is difficult for the addict to find enough courage to accept the existence of a problem. Family and friends can be a motivating factor which leads the addict toward recovery.

Is Attending A Rehab Program Necessary?

Yes. The process of drug rehabilitation is very complex and requires the help of skilled professionals. Additionally, the entire procedure requires a high level of commitment, which is more possible in the regimented setting of a drug rehab center.

Going to a rehab facility in Powell 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 Powell?

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

The main aim of any rehab facility in Powell is to make certain that the patient is free from drugs, and able to live a healthy productive life with little or no chance of a relapse. There is no exact time frame to drug treatment, it depends on the individual. Some might find it beneficial to participate in meetings and support groups long after their stay in the rehab. Others might choose to discontinue the program after detoxification and recovery from painful withdrawal symptoms.

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

A long term residential treatment facility stretches for three months to a year or more. Usually addicts prone to relapses are recommended for such a program. This facility promotes 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 designed to lower the rate of relapses.

Conclusion

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