    Drug Detox

    Detox is a drug rehab process that is designed to remove the drug addict from the drug safely.

If a person goes through detox and returns to their everyday life, they may begin using again once the detox has worn off.

    Detox does not help with cravings, so for some addicts, this can be extremely difficult and should be both done and supervised by medical professionals. Aftercare is crucial, so selecting a facility that offers additional services is important.

    Group therapy is an important tool in recovery. Finding a peer group in Brooklyn, MD and others who relate to your situation is a fundamental tool for recovery at Addiction Treatment Systems - Starting Point. Addiction tends to lead to isolation and feelings of uniqueness. The accountability and friendship that is found in group therapy can be more effective than any single other treatment approach.

    Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) is a variation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that helps people understand how maladaptive, negative, and habitual thoughts and feelings lead to bad life choices. REBT is based on the idea that people operate under many irrational but habitual patterns of thought that fuel harmful practices.

    Alcoholics Anonymous is responsible for the development of the popular “12 Step Program”. Most substance treatment centers in Maryland have their own 12 step program designed to help users achieve sobriety. Because of this, most treatment plans follow a similar pattern when broken down.

    The first three steps depend on the patient, so they are more specific and situational. The succeeding four steps center on practical issues brought on by substance abuse. Steps 8 and 9 deal with the social and emotional repercussions of addiction, encouraging patients to make amends to people they have wronged. These are followed by two steps revolving around the further exploration and reinforcement of Steps 1 to 9.

    The last step requires an individual to extend a helping hand to people who are still in the early stages of their recovery.
