    Drug Rehabilitation

    Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.

    Alcoholism Treatment

    Treatment options for alcoholism include various support groups, medication-assisted therapy (MAT), and residential treatment centers. Support groups are beneficial because they are often free or low-cost. They also provide people who have gone through the same experience to help others through their recovery.

    Benefits of sobriety include the following:

    • Increased life expectancy due to a healthier lifestyle.
    • Improved relationships with friends and family
    • Increased enjoyment of life
    • Fewer health problems (heart disease, liver cirrhosis, some cancers, etc.)
    • Lower risk of accidents (less likely to drive drunk or be involved in alcohol-related crimes)

    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient treatment is often used for drug addicts in drug rehab. Outpatient treatment consists of counseling and therapy sessions. This form of treatment is also called ‘day-treatment’. The outpatient treatment process begins with the addict’s initial detox period, lasting about ten days.

    • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
    • Can handle stressors that might trigger relapse
    • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober
    • Have a support system that allows them to go to a facility a few times a week while still keeping their current responsibilities
    • Have no legal obligations, being either on parole or probation, that require them to seek treatment at a mandatory facility
    • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
    • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober
