Rehab Information

When someone has abused a substance long enough or intensively enough to create an addiction, a drug rehab program is necessary for full recovery.

FOUR IMPORTANT DRUG REHAB FACTS

The success or failure of any drug rehab program is affected by four important facts:

  1. No two people are the same, and people with addictions are people.
  2. No drug rehab program is 100% effective for 100% of people seeking treatment.
  3. Drug rehab programs offer widely different approaches and methods.
  4. Different people need different kinds of drug rehab to achieve success.

In other words, people who fail to achieve permanent sobriety in one drug rehab program might very well achieve success in a program better suited to their unique needs.

There are as many different drug rehab methods, approaches and philosophies as there are drug rehab programs. When choosing a drug rehab program, take the time to ask plenty of questions and insist on clear, understandable answers. Then consider how that program personally suits you or the person you are helping.

NOTE: Drug detox always precedes drug rehab. Learn how to choose the right kind of drug detox program to help ensure the success of your drug rehab.

A long term rehab program — three or more months of inpatient treatment — is the best choice when short term programs have failed or the abuse is severe.

ALTERNATIVE REHAB

Alternative rehab programs are based on the philosophy that addiction can be permanently overcome, not on the idea that addiction is a disease that can’t be cured.
