Finding the Help You Need in Rehab

Treatment professionals and others in recovery know that hope is the catalyst that keeps a struggling substance abuser motivated and engaged in recovery efforts.  Long term effects of chronic substance abuse can bring on significant problems in the areas of medical and psychiatric health, employment, and family relations.  These issues can be impediments to seeking help, staying in rehab long enough, or quickly relapsing when things get tough.

According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, “Recovery from addiction is best achieved through a combination of self-management, mutual support, and professional care provided by trained and certified professionals.”  While not all rehabs are able to provide specialized treatment services, the best of them will be, at the least, able to provide active referrals to the proper agencies and resources that are suitable to your needs.

Seeking Help

Need in Rehab

Individual counseling is an important component of rehab.

Too often, even those who suspect that they need help in overcoming their abuse or associated problems and those who have fleeting motivations to recover will leave the issues unattended until they come to a crisis point.  A great deal of physical, psychological, social, economic, and legal problems resulting from drug abuse go underserviced in the needs for rehab and the individuals are involved with many local, community, court, and welfare agencies instead.

Although there are many reasons for seeking substance abuse treatment, few perceive the need to do so without a threat of losing something valuable.  Unfortunately, according to the SAMHSA’s 2015 Behavioral Health Barometer, ”About 8 in 10 individuals (79.9%) with illicit drug dependence or abuse did not perceive a need for treatment for their illicit drug use.” One of the biggest misconceptions however, is that people have to hit “rock bottom” before they can be helped.

Knowing What To Look For

The first thing most people consider is detox and if you have been abusing drugs or alcohol for while, you have probably developed a tolerance and dependency that gives you a healthy fear of withdrawals.   While abstinence is a primary goal, medications are available to help reach that goal for opioid and alcohol dependencies.  When used appropriately, medications can be another advancement tool for recovery.  Some rehabs are more progressive than others and some are in line with natural healing, faith, gender specific or diversified, clinical, or relaxed, and to the extent possible, the options should be explored.

Severity of the addiction and the duration of abuse along with the type of drugs being used, environmental, biological, and social support indicators are some important factors to consider.  When determining whether an outpatient or inpatient program is more appropriate, self-care and family needs such as maintaining a job, child care, housing arrangements, or other social commitments may warrant an outpatient rehab, however, an assessment with the provider will help you make the best choice.   With a wide variety a drug rehabs available, it is important to participate in the program most suitable to your needs.  Other factors that become involved in the search for a rehab typically include:

  • Duration
  • Financial abilities to pay
  • Travel requirements
  • Supportive conditions for recovery in the home environment

Why go to a Specialized Rehab?

Counseling and Behavioral Therapies

Individual, group, and family counseling are the cornerstones of rehab.  Like any other disease, awareness, support, and guidance can help to instill hope and boost the progress of other interventions in medical, psychiatric, and behavioral health.  The urges to seek and use drugs compete with many other behaviors and eventually can overpower the rewards you might get from those activities you were previously fond of.  Removing the doubts with one accomplishment at a time, availability of additional services, and quality interactions between you and your counselor can be some of the most promising types of recovery objectives.

Linking the person to their own capacities to move forward in coping and skill strategies necessary to abstain from illicit substance abuse and avoid stressful triggers are the key elements of preventing a relapse.  According to the SAMHSA, recovery is “A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.”  Behavioral therapies will vary in focus and may involve:

  • addressing motivations to change
  • providing incentives to stay abstinent
  • replacing drug-using activities with constructive and rewarding ones
  • improving problem-solving skills and building coping skills to resist urges
  • building positive and healthy relationships
