Seeking an Addiction Treatment Program?
It is important when searching for treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction that the right treatment program is chosen.
The substance being abused will play a large part in determining which program is right for you or your loved one. Some may specialize in treating less severe addictions, or specifically relapses and on-going treatment or therapy, while others may focus more on the longer term, more severe addictions that may include other disorders or medical histories that must be taken into account.
Professional Addiction Consultation
Depending on the age group, there are certain professionals that can be consulted when trying to choose a suitable drug and alcohol treatment program. For most age groups, the individual’s doctor can provide information on the best facilities available and what kind of treatment programs they offer. They will be able to inform of the best kinds of drug addiction treatment programs for the particular addict’s age group. General healthcare providers, pharmacists and counselors will also be able to point the addict towards the most trusted and reputable treatment centers.
Location and social status may prove to be important factors when seeking the right treatment program. For example, some drug rehab centers may require a long term stay with the facility for maximum chances of making a successful recovery, especially if the individual’s social circle is the most influential factor in the cycle of drug abuse. This may mean a move for up to a few months may be necessary. It has been shown that in this case, success rates are higher than those facilities that do not offer a residential treatment option.
Types of Addiction Treatment
When someone enters a drug abuse treatment facility, there are going to be many options for dealing with their recovery. Drug abuse treatments vary from place to place, and there are always many different options for you when it comes to dealing with your drug abuse problem.
There are inpatient treatment centers that you can enter for drug abuse. At these centers you will be kept away from the world, which might be the best option for you. You will be able to concentrate on your problems and on taking care of them. At these centers for drug abuse treatment, there will be people who can help you 24 hours a day to deal with your abuse and your addiction.
There are also outpatient programs that do not require a stay, but provide frequent counseling and therapy meetings. An outpatient program is a good choice for a student who simply cannot be in a residential treatment program due to family, financial, or other obligations. Outpatient treatment is more difficult than inpatient. The student does not spend all their time at the center, which makes relapse more likely.

Detox and Withdrawal During Treatment
In certain circumstances, drug abuse treatment might consist of other drugs to combat symptoms of withdrawal as the student clears the drugs from their body. If you are addicted to a very harmful drug and the withdrawals are actually dangerous to your life, you might go on a drug regimen, controlled by a doctor, which will help you kick your habits. There are also medications that can lesson the affects of the drugs in your system, so that you will be more able to stop using them. These drugs are very carefully prescribed and controlled by professionals, and are usually administered at hospitals.
No matter what option is right for you, drug abuse treatment is the beginning to your new life.
The Impact of Addiction Treatment on Family and Friends
Treatment and recovery can be a tough time, not just for the patient being treated, but also for the family, friends and medical staff. Drug addiction recovery consists of good days and bad days, like most other aspects of life, but the overall progress of an addict in treatment can be influenced by the attitudes and support of those around them.
It is important to realize that addiction is usually something that the addict can not come out of alone. It was believed that drug addiction was simply antisocial behavior that was totally controlled by the addict, thus any unwanted side effects or dangers were thought to be brought on by the addict himself. Today we know differently.
Addiction is very complicated – resulting from specific psychological changes that occur due to the intake of foreign chemicals that the body, under normal circumstances, is not sure how to deal with. The pleasure that addicts experience from using drugs is not the only factor that leads to addiction, therefore, preventing pleasurable effects from using the drugs is not the only factor that must be addressed for a successful recovery. The student must learn to make the right choices – which is what the program at Freedom Treatment Center is focused on.
Stages and Steps to Recovery
There are occasions where these supporting individuals have removed the addict from the addiction treatment program simply because they feel it is too harsh on the patient. It must be stressed that while the addiction treatment may appear to be harsh at times, it is not always like this. Stages where the patient is uncomfortable during his withdrawal from drugs are usually relieved quickly and occasions are few and far between. Friends and family of the patient undergoing drug addiction recovery must accept that the process often involves these stages of discomfort and allow the process to run its course.
Doctors and nurses of addiction treatment centers are often affected on a daily basis by the drug addiction recovery processes that they use to treat their patients. Sometimes patients may become aggressive, depressed or suffer from panic attacks; especially through the difficult period of drug detoxification. The results of these from the medical professionals’ point of view can sometimes be hurtful, both emotionally and physically. However, these addiction treatment centers employ staff who are specifically trained to deal with these situations in a positive and constructive way.
What must be taken into account during the treatment process is the influence that people can have on the addict’s progress. Support during the good times and the bad will help to reassure the addict that he is doing the right thing and to persist with the treatment. This will also be enforced by the medical professionals who are there to make the whole process of drug addiction recovery as comfortable and positive as possible for the patient.
