12 Step Recovery Program

  1. 1. ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTERS – GIVING THE RIGHT DIRECTION TO YOUR LIFE• It is not uncommon for people to be addicted to drugs and alcohol and the number of such addicts is rising every day. The increasing number of drug and alcohol addicts is a great threat to society. They result in destroying the balance of society as substance dependencies mean broken relationships, divorce, child abuse and many other problems. The experience is not traumatic only for the person who is addicted to alcohol or drugs but the close friends and family members are also greatly affected. But this doesn’t mean that there is no hope. There are plenty of addiction treatment centers and one can approach them to get treated and come back to their normal lifestyle.• Addiction Recovery Programs are not a very easy thing to manage, at least for those who have been drinking and taking drugs for a long time. It is important to search for a suitable addiction treatment centers so that one can go through the whole program under proper supervision. For any form of Drug Abuse Treatment or Alcohol Addiction Treatment, it is important that the addict realizes that treatment is a must. Only when the realization is present in the patient, the treatment can be started successfully and desired results can be obtained. Centers can be searched on the internet or one can discuss the matter with a substance abuse counselor. The counselor will help one to find the right healthcare institution like or any such treatment center. Also, the counselor would be the right person to guide the addict about the best out of different Addiction Treatment Programs offered in these centers.• Stages of treatment• The professional Drug Addiction Treatment Centers and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Centers follow different stages during the treatment. These steps are Treatment Initiation, Early Abstinence, maintaining Abstinence and recovery stage. All these distinct phases will help one to get rid of addiction and develop a sober lifestyle.• The ‘Treatment Initiation’ i.e. the first stage of treatment followed in a Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center can be a voluntarily taken step or the person may be forced by the circumstances to start the program. During the first few days of this stage, the addict is unsure about the treatment and may not find substance abuse very bad. Strong mental strength is needed to accept that substance abuse is actually a harmful thing. Properly administered Drug Addiction Counseling at this stage can turn out to be very helpful.• The next phase is the ‘Early Abstinence’ phase and it is the toughest stage of the treatment. There are many withdrawal symptoms and one has to learn to deal with them. There could be physical craving, psychological setbacks and many other factors there that could tempt one to go back to drugs or alcohol again.• After about 90 days of abstinence, the next stage –‘Maintaining Abstinence’ is reached. In case of residential programs, the addicts will move to the follow up counseling session in the outpatient mode. It is a long period to cover and then recovery stage is reached. ‘Recovery’ is the final stage of the treatment followed at the Drug Addiction Treatment Center.
  2. 2. BACK TO SOBRIETY WITH ADDICTION TREATMENT PROGRAMS• Alcohol and Drug abuse are on the rise. People who are suffering from alcohol and drug abuse consume these substances (both prescription drugs and illicit ones) in such manner that it results in harming their health, well-being, relationships and productivity. It is not always the fact that the person abusing drugs and alcohol is an addict. But abuse of these substances may be considered as a risk factor for developing an addiction for them and result in physical and psychological dependence for that substance. It is important to find a professional Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center to avoid any traumatic situations in future.•• The primary goal of an Addiction Recovery Program is to help the drug or alcohol addict to escape from addiction and return to a normal lifestyle. Any successful Drug Abuse Treatment will accomplish the work by interrupting the drug use cycle and by teaching the addict how to work without the addictive substances. Any Drug or Alcohol Addiction Treatment must focus on total abstinence of the substance and not only cutting back on the consumption.

The addiction treatment program is a long term process and it could be successfully accomplished with the help of professional people.

Before the type of treatment gets selected, it is important for the addict to realize that treatment is needed for the substance abuse. Without this self-realization, the treatment has to be delivered forcefully with the help of close friends, family members or counselors.• Drug Addiction Counseling plays a very important role in making a person realize that his or her addiction to drug or alcohol is bringing devastation to not only in his or her life but also to the lives of his/her close ones. Addiction Treatment Centers have the right people who are qualified in the subject and have experience to handle different cases, so one can expect to get the best of services in these centers.•• Addiction Treatment Centers help in building up a support network of caring individuals who can help in providing guidance and encouragement to the addicts during their recovery process. Such treatments are done under the supervision of medical professionals and address the physical consequences of the drug or alcohol addiction.• Modes of Treatment• The Drug or Alcohol Addiction Treatment Centers like offer treatments in two modes.
