Drug Rehab Programs

Drug addiction is a very complex disorder that can be characterized by intense physical dependence, uncontrollable cravings and urges to use drugs, and a compulsive desire to find and use drugs despite the known consequences of the drug abuse. Although the severity of ones drug addiction may differ based on factors such as the level of drug abuse, the method of abuse, the type of drug used and other factors, the methods of treatment for drug addiction don’t always differ so much. In fact, most drug rehab programs utilize similar combinations of counseling, therapy, detoxification and aftercare in an effort to eliminate physical dependence and treat psychiatric disorders to effectively help patients overcome addiction.

Effective drug rehab programs will incorporate a number of different treatment modalities and therapeutic components into a program to ensure the greatest possible chance of promoting behavioral change that makes a difference in the recovering addict’s life. These programs focus on behavioral changes that will help the addict to stop using drugs, live a healthy (or at least a drug-free lifestyle), and become a productive individual that functions normally in society as well as at work, home and school. As the drug treatment industry has become more advanced, many different types of drug rehab programs have evolved to provide patients with quality, effective care.

Residential Drug Rehab Programs

Many people will require long-term treatment for their addiction and most will require at least a short stay in a residential drug rehab center in order to reap the greatest benefits of treatment. These programs are especially effective for those with the most severe drug addictions such as addiction to opiates, heroin, prescription medications, methamphetamine and cocaine. Residential drug rehab programs provide structured support to patients who remain in a residential facility for a period of 30 days or more. These programs influence the attitudes and work to change the behaviors of patients to reduce the risk of relapse from occurring upon completion of the treatment program.

Outpatient Drug Rehab Programs

Many recovering addicts will take part in outpatient drug rehab as part of their continued efforts to maintain sobriety. These programs offer a wide variety of treatment and rehabilitation options including individual and group counseling, medication replacement therapy and social support. The focus here is still on shifting behavioral norms in an effort to change the ways that recovering drug addicts think and act when it comes to drugs. Many outpatient rehab programs use behavioral therapy techniques such as CBT or motivational incentives to motivate users to change their thinking and to abstain from drug abuse.
