Drug Rehab Information

Determining whether you need drug rehab is the first step towards gaining more information on drug rehab. There are a number of items to consider when researching drug rehab facilities. Below are some factors to consider when choosing an alcohol & drug rehab center for yourself or a loved one:

  • Is the drug rehab state-licensed? State-licensed alcohol and drug rehab facilities are upheld to a more strict set of guidelines and subject to routine inspections to ensure the quality of care given meets standards.

  • Does the drug rehab offer state-licensed detox? Many drug rehab facilities offer detox that is little more than a bed and the administration of prescription medication to slowly wean an individual through the withdrawal symptoms. Ask what the detox process at the drug rehab consists of.

  • Does the drug rehab offer a comprehensive treatment program? Addiction is a 3-part malady that affects mind, body and spirit. A good drug rehab treatment program addresses all three by offering clinical therapists, certified drug & alcohol counselors, educational modules, skilled holistic practitioners, medical personnel and group support. Everyone works together in a therapeutic environment to address the individual healing process of mind, body and spirit.

  • Is there a high staff to client ratio at the drug rehab? This ensures more individualized care and attention. The counseling staff at the drug rehab facility should be accredited. It’s also helpful if staff members have their own successful recovery experience to offer in order to relate to clients on a personal as well as professional level.

  • Location of the drug rehab can be one of the greatest factors in the success of an individual’s treatment. Many seek drug rehab centers close to home in order to be near family members; however, this is not always in the best interest of the individual seeking treatment. Change requires focus. The familiarity of people, places and things can distract from the recovery process and increase the chances of relapse. A tough love approach that removes an individual from familiar surroundings can contribute to a successful recovery.

  • Avoid the “one-size-fits-all” approach in drug rehab. There are as many conditions and variations of alcohol & drug addiction as there are people seeking help. Seek out specialized drug rehab treatment programs for alcohol & drug addiction that take into account your personal history, including age, gender, childhood and adult trauma, family dynamics, co-dependency, dual diagnosis, physical distress and any other combination of factors contributing to chemical dependency. Find one that fits you.

  • Decide which treatment modality in drug rehab works best for you. The majority of alcohol & drug rehab centers employ the 12-step approach, which has the highest measurable success rate in recovery. Other treatment methods place a greater emphasis on cognitive and behavioral therapy with group support minus the 12-step emphasis. Research will help you determine what is best for you.

    The Basics of Drug Rehab

    Most drug rehab facilities have the basic goal to stabilize an individual through detox from alcoholism and drug addiction, help the body begin the healing process and provide education and support to begin building a new life in sobriety beyond drug rehab. Not all facilities offer the following program modules to ensure the basic goals are met, but the best drug rehab facilities do.

  • Detox: Recovery cannot begin until the physical body is safely stabilized from the withdrawal of alcoholism or drug addiction. SouthCoast Recovery offers safe, licensed medical detox as well as the cutting-edge Neurotransmitter Repair Therapy (NTR) that bathes the brain in amino acids, jump-starting the healing process of the brain and body and allowing for a quicker return to alertness.

  • Clinical Evaluation: Following the detox process, it is necessary to have a clinical evaluation to determine history of alcohol and drug addiction, and whether there is the potential for dual diagnosis. Based on this clinical evaluation, a plan is then tailored for alcohol or drug addiction treatment.

  • Treatment of Mind-Body-Spirit: A combination of therapies are employed to support the healing process from alcoholism and drug addiction on multiple levels. Clinical therapy, holistic therapy and innovative workshops on proven methods and the latest discoveries on treating alcoholism and drug addiction in order to educate clients on their disease all work together for build a foundation for long-term sobriety.

  • Transition: Once a client completes drug rehab, the goal is to successfully transition back into society without relapsing back to alcohol or drug usage. SouthCoast Recovery offers one of the best transitional living programs in the nation, providing continued counselor access, educational modules and peer support through a fragile process of reintegration. Easing back into the community can be a volatile time where sobriety is easily jeopardized. Following Inpatient treatment at a drug rehab facility, transitioning to Outpatient or sober living is highly suggested. For long-term success in sobriety, we recommend our 90 day program, followed by AfterCare and if possible, sober living.
