Help Me Find a Drug Rehab Center

All about Drug Rehab in Sun Valley

Use and abuse of drugs is not only detrimental to physical health, but also, has tremendous effects on the mental stability of the person. Drugs affect the user as well as their close friends and family. Addiction has often torn many families apart. Fortunately help is available, but the initial step towards recovery lies in admitting that there is a drug abuse problem. This is where the value of a loving and supportive family becomes apparant. Without some sort of a support group, it can be very hard for an addict to find enough courage to accept help for their problem. Family acts as a motivating factor which steers the addict toward recovery.

Is Attending A Rehab Program Necessary?

Yes. The process of drug rehabilitation is very complicated and requires the help of trained professionals. Additionally, the entire recovery process requires a high level of commitment and dedication, which is more possible in the supervised setting of a drug rehab center.

Going to a rehab facility in Sun Valley 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 Sun Valley?

The length of a drug rehab 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 rehab center.

The main goal of any rehab facility in Sun Valley is to make certain that the patient is free from drugs, and capable of living a productive and healthy life with little or no chance of a relapse. There is no particular time frame 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 successful detoxification and recovery from painful withdrawal symptoms.

Many rehab centers in Sun Valley offer either short term programs or long term programs. In short term treatment programs, the addict lives 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 learns about handling stress, peer pressure and is encouraged to open up about problems. A short term residential program is more effective than solely a three to five day detox, and greatly reduces 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 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 intended to lower the rate of relapses.

In Closing

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 respect and care to help see them through the program.
