10 Ways an Addiction Treatment Program Can Change Your Life

According to SAMHSA, “Recovery is built on access to evidence-based clinical treatment and recovery support services for all populations.” Because of its ability to provide you with these benefits, an addiction treatment program can actually change your life.

1. A beneficial rehabilitation program can enable you to connect with new people who will understand what you are going through. Meeting other patients can help you feel less alone while you are going through a difficult time. In addition, knowing that a team of well-trained clinicians is helping you will allow you to feel supported and confident through the early stages of your recovery.

2. These programs often help patients reconnect with their own loved ones as well. According to the NIDA, multidimensional family therapy, which is available at many rehab centers, “addresses a range of influences on [an addict’s] drug abuse patterns and is designed to improve overall family functioning.”

Treatment centers can help you break the chains of addiction.

3. Co-occurring mental disorders are extremely common among drug addicts, and these can be treated alongside addictive behavior in inpatient- and certain outpatient-based facilities. The simultaneous treatment of these two conditions goes a long way toward protecting an individual from the threat of relapse.

4. Individuals who attend rehab programs, such as methadone maintenance, are more likely to see “reduced criminal activity,” “improved… employment potential,” and improved financial stability than those who choose not to attend treatment (CDC).

5. Most treatment facilities also ensure that patients are placed in an aftercare program that suits their general needs. Transitioning from clinical treatment into a support group, individualized drug counseling, or even a facility like a sober living home or halfway house can help protect the work you’ve done in rehab and prevent relapse.

6. In treatment, patients are able to discuss the reasons why they started using drugs in the first place. This can change your entire perspective on your drug abuse and help you avoid falling back into old habits in the future.

7. Those who don’t attend a rehab program often struggle to abstain from drugs, especially during their withdrawal syndrome. Many treatment programs start with medically-assisted detoxification which, according to the NIDA, “help[s] in suppressing withdrawal symptoms” and makes it easier for patients to abstain during this difficult time.

8. Medications you’ll receive in treatment will also make it easier for you to abstain from the drug after detox by diminishing cravings and helping to “reestablish normal brain function.” In some cases, pharmaceutical treatment can be continued for weeks or even months as a part of an addiction treatment program.

9. Attending rehab can help remind you that you do not need to go through recovery on your own. Fighting addiction can sometimes last your entire life, and there is no reason to feel as if you cannot reach out to others for help, especially when you hit a particularly difficult patch.

10. An addiction treatment program can help get your life back on track. For many, this is the ultimate way in which this choice changes them forever: after drug addiction has all but taken their lives away, a strong rehab program can help to restore them.
