Drug rehab is the medical or psychotherapeutic treatment process by which individuals struggling with chemical dependency receive treatment for this devastating disease. The purpose of addiction treatment is to enable the struggling addict to cease substance dependence so that he or she can avoid an uncertain future and the general problems caused by extreme abuse. Drug rehab generally includes prescribed drugs to ease withdrawal and treat any underlying disorder, as well as counseling sessions by addiction therapists and the empathy and support from family members and other addicts in recovery. Several drug rehab facilities may employ a more holistic approach to treatment.

Recovery and Peer Support

Peer support is essential in recovery as addicts often feel lonely. This approach to treatment is a channel by which addicts can express their feelings and frustrations without fear of being judged. While every individual experiences recovery differently, everyone can benefit from a helping hand. The support of others can make recovery a more enjoyable process.

Recovering substance abusers may often experience agonizing doubt, fear, cravings and a sense of instability during recovery, but the sense of loss, insecurity and danger of slipping back into addiction, can drag on much longer. That’s why peer recovery support services are critical in conquering addiction and in greatly reducing the chances of relapse.

Peer recovery support can sometimes go beyond clinical treatment and directly impact the lives of those who need it most. Patients should be encouraged to get involved in peer recovery support, including outside meetings like Narcotics Anonymous (NA) or Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) for ongoing support and maintenance. This therapeutic treatment approach helps to build relationships with other recovering addicts and alcoholics. Plus, it provides recovering substance abusers with an opportunity to find sponsors who can help guide them through a post-rehab 12-step program.

Recovery and Relapse

Some recovered substance abusers can relapse after completing the treatment. That’s why it is important to realize that relapse is a process. There are generally three stages of relapse:

  • Emotional relapse: emotions and behaviors are preparing the user for problems ahead: anxiety, anger, defensiveness, mood swings, isolation, not asking for help and not going to meetings. The individual is not thinking about using at this point.
  • Mental relapse: In the early phase, users can have tempting thoughts about using drugs or alcohol, but later on they may definitely thinking more about going back to this addictive lifestyle.
  • Physical relapse: It doesn’t take long to go from thinking about a relapse to the actual physical relapse. During this stage users actually seek drugs or alcohol to satisfy their cravings.

Those individuals who have relapsed a few times should not feel discouraged as this tends to occur to many people struggling with chemical dependency. You can learn from your relapse. Identify your “weak” points and work on overcoming them. Remind yourself why you gave up the addictive behavior in the first place. Recommit yourself, and get back into a supportive environment at a rehab center where you’ll have a greater chance of a lasting recovery.
