Falling victim to any form of alcoholic thinking is a terrible thing, but chemical dependency is definitely up there with the worst of the addictions. It is one of the only diseases in existence that will try and convince you it doesn’t exist. Many are fortunate enough to not suffer under the weight of such obsessive thinking and the burdens of needing instant euphoric gratification.
Though unfortunately in a world where instant gratification is constantly yearned for, many addicts and alcoholics find themselves in situations requiring treatment services before long. Upon accepting there is an issue and requesting inpatient help of some sort, we look to focus on the cause and effect of the powerlessness that is a chemical dependency. With a 12 step foundation, recovery is always possible. However, some believe that there is a reason why we have Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Though similar in design, the same idea applies to the differences in drug rehab and alcohol rehab as they do in meetings.
Some of those differences break down into the core of how the specific individual deals with their disease. Yes, there are people who have found a solution to their drinking thru Alcoholics Anonymous, and there are those that used multiple drugs and have found theirs in the rooms of Narcotics Anonymous. Then there are those too who’ve found solutions in both. Every addict and alcoholic is the same, but it’s their story and process that make them unique. Treatment approaches must be modified to take in hand each patient’s drug use patterns and drug-related medical, psychiatric, and social tribulations as they come.
What is Drug Rehab?
Attending some sort of treatment services is one thing, but when you separate the troubles caused by drugs and alcohol, it easier to dig down right to the root of the usage. Drug rehab is a whole other entity to its counterpart alcohol rehab. In drug rehab, the focus of rehabilitation, therapy, and relapse prevention are gone about in a special manner in comparison to alcohol rehab.
The realities of substance abuse are threatening and there’s not a doubt about it. Neither drug nor alcohol addiction is worse than the other. Addiction is addiction. However, when looking at recovery in therapeutic terms, it’s important to divide the two and the neurological impacts that certain drugs can leave that an alcohol addiction may not. The breakdown of chemicals into the brain’s composition leaves a different mark in the long run than drinking can.
Attending a drug rehab of any sorts can benefit any individual with substance abuse in regards to narcotics. For many this is a great segway into recovery and the dealings of early sobriety.
Drug Rehab at Dream Center Recovery
At Dream Center Recovery, we see the need to distinguish differences in personality and treatment process. Our drug rehab is based off of inpatient/outpatient design with intent to help any and all focus in on recovery.
After hopefully having gone thru a clean detoxification process, our patients are admitted into our inpatient facility where the blueprint for their length of stay is created. With that length of stay being established, we then create a prospectus of sorts that will help generate what aspects require therapy and healthy continuation of early sobriety.
We like to believe Dream Center Recovery to stand out from the crowd with our dedicated medical staff and personalized way of doing things. Just a few of the things we offer at our drug rehab are:
Individual Therapy Sessions
A Multitude of Different Therapy Groups
Relapse Prevention Training
General Life skills Building
To top that off, we offer holistic care options throughout the duration of stay to ensure many approaches are taken.
We offer Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Like other treatment plans for substance abuse disorder, medication assisted treatment is focused on identifying and treating the root cause of the addiction. Therapy is also provided to help identify situations that may trigger cravings. Developing strategies to handle your known triggers without using substances is an important aspect of your treatment plan.
