Drug rehabilitation is a term for the process of medical/psycho therapeutic treatment, for the dependency on alcohol and other substances.
What is Rehabilitation?
The general intent is to enable the client to cease substance/alcohol abuse, in order to avoid the psychological, legal, financial, social and physical consequences that can be caused, especially by extreme abuse.
There are various types of programmes offering help in drug rehabilitation which include, residential treatment, out-patient, extended care centres and recovery or sober houses.
Twelve step programmes encourage addicts to stop using drugs/alcohol as well as examine and change habits related to their addictions. Recovery is a permanent process without culmination. Complete abstention rather than attempts at moderation, which may lead to relapse is also emphasized. Weather moderation is achievable by those with a history of abuse remains a controversial point.
How can Rehabilitation Help
Requiring abstinence through a rehabilitation programme will begin with an inpatient detox. A process in rehabilitation will begin by breaking the denial of the person with the addiction. It needs the client to confront the true nature of the addiction and take any action to improve their life and achieve long term abstinence.
