You deserve to fully recover from your drug addiction. Drug addiction is a brain disease that makes individuals psychologically and physically dependent on the drug to live daily life. Drug addiction treatment is not a quick-fix. It is a long a difficult process that must take full commitment and a desire to want to change your thoughts and behaviors towards leading a better life for yourself and for those that you love.
Although detoxification is an essential component to the drug addiction treatment process, it is not enough to fully ensure that you will avoid a relapse. There are a multitude of psychological and physical withdrawal symptoms that occur in the absence of the drug. Without inpatient treatment, therapy sessions, and transitional care, the likelihood for a relapse is extremely high.
What is Detoxification?
Detoxification is the process of removing the drug toxins from the person’s body. After a psychological and physical evaluation of your addiction or co-occurring diagnosis, then the next step is a full medical assessment. A medical team will assess you for the psychological and physical effects the drug has had on you and will determine the appropriate medication to detoxify your body from the drug.
Detoxification is the First Hurdle
Now that you are free of all drug toxins, the grueling withdrawal symptoms occur. This is the biggest reason that detox is not enough to rid you of your addiction. You will experience immense mental, physical, and emotional pain in the absence of the drug. Since your body has become so dependent on the drug it is going to tell your brain to crave the drug. This is the time in which you need to go through a comprehensive treatment plan to help ease the withdrawal symptoms so you reduce the cravings for the drug and avoid a relapse.
A Whole-person Approach is the Only Solution
Because detoxification is not enough to cure your mental and emotional distress, an individualized treatment plan must be implemented. An individualized treatment plan includes the development of personal and professional goals, techniques on how to mend relationships and incorporate positive people in your life, and a wide-range of therapy options to teach you how to productively respond in stressful situations.
Inpatient treatment will give you the opportunity to refine and adapt your goals with a psychotherapist and spiritual counselor. You will learn how to take responsibility for your actions and recover the time that was lost by drug addiction in your work, familial, and social spheres. Through research-based psychotherapy techniques, you will find your passion in life and will have a second chance at pursuing your dreams. During this time, you will learn how to respond meaningfully in adverse situations and will fill your life with a renewed faith in God.
