Free rehab centers can help you and your family get through your addiction.
Addiction can affect every area of your life, including family, personal relationships and employment. Fortunately getting treatment at a free inpatient drug rehab center is available through federally approved drug treatment centers. Some even offer treatment at low or no cost if the individual cannot afford treatment. Drug treatment can also be court ordered for a person as part of or in lieu of a jail sentence.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, drug addiction costs over $600 billion annually. Costs primarily due to health problems related to drug use, productivity and crime. Although a lot of drug use is casual, people addicted to drugs are often unable to stop even after multiple attempts on their own. A drug addiction recovery program is for people whose casual drug use has turned into an addiction that they are unable to stop on their own.. Addiction can generally be determined through a visit to a physician, but the drug user or those close to him can also look for certain common signs to determine if the user is actually addicted to the drug.
Signs of drug addiction
A feeling that use of the drug is necessary just to feel “normal”
Inability to stop using drugs voluntarily.
Keeping a constant supply of the drug.
Willingness to obtain the drug by illegal methods.
Finding the Right Treatment Center
A large number of residential rehab centers are available throughout the country to provide rehabilitation and recovery treatment, each center offering different approaches to the recovery process. Some focus on the spiritual aspect of recovery. Other programs offer a more medical approach. This greatly increases the chances at long term recovery because it provides a more customized and personalized form of treatment.
The first step to choosing the best facility is to narrow down the choices to those that fit your particular recovery needs. Make sure that the facility chosen offers a recovery program that has a successful history of treating your specific addiction. When choosing the best free inpatient drug treatment center, it’s also important to find one that has a program length that meets your needs. Most programs begin at about 28 days to give patients enough time to get through the detoxification process that is generally followed by counseling. This time-frame may not be enough to completely battle the addiction, so a facility that has an extendable program is preferred because it allows addicts to work at their own pace toward recovery.
Free treatment is Available
Some facilities offer substance abuse treatment at no cost or low cost or on a sliding fee scale based on income and other factors. Free inpatient drug rehab centers can help you and your family heal.
