Alcohol Rehab & The Best Drug Program: Keys to Recovery

  1. 1. Alcohol Rehab & The Best Drug Program: Keys to RecoveryAuthor: Brett D FullerAlcoholism and drug addiction are two major social problems that severely plague theworld today. This has created a situation that needs to be dealt with on a war footing asit is not only destroying young lives but wrecking a large number of homes as well.Alcohol rehab centers, which deal with the problem of alcoholism are sprouting all overthe US, Europe, EU countries and also in Asia. The same applies to drug addiction andthe best drug program is being implemented to detoxify drug addicts.Alcohol rehab takes into consideration the victim’s lifestyle, family, community to whichhe belongs, culture, value systems and spiritual traditions when treating the latter. Aholistic approach is adopted which helps the alcoholic to realize how dependent he is onalcohol, the reasons that lead him to drinking and what it means to have a happy,healthy life. The best drug program, similarly, will also adopt the same approach inanalyzing the victim’s psychology and physical conditions that have led to his dependenceand addiction to drugs.Both alcohol rehab and the best drug program will base themselves on biological, socialand cultural issues that affect the patient’s life. Since each patient is different and has aproblem that is unique to his own, the respective program in which he enrolls will try andwork out a customized solution for the problem. Be it through counseling, group therapy,hypnotherapy or even counter drugging (for example methadone in the case of heroinwithdrawal), the patient will be treated as a stand alone case who needs to be treatedseparately.
  2. 2. In order to get back into a healthy and regimented life, both alcohol rehab and the bestdrug program will insist that the patient be first removed from the environment that isdriving him towards his addiction and be kept in a place where he feels comfortable andhis mind gradually comes to rest. This may require absolute seclusion from family andfriends for days, which the victim may severely resist. This, however, is absolutelymandatory for the patient’s benefit in the long run.There are exclusive centers that offer both drug detoxification and alcohol rehab facilitiesin the US. Usually situated in picturesque places, they offer a calm and sereneenvironment which aids the patient’s healing process. This combined with scientificmethods of treatment usually lead to full recovery and prevent relapse later. Eating Disorders & Treatment Centers For AnorexiaEating disorders are serious conditions that affect people physically and mentally. What ismore alarming is the fact that most people who suffer from them try to hide the fact thatsomething is wrong. This makes it all the more difficult for family members and friends ofthose affected by it to notice the warning signs and symptoms.According to published figures, approximately 10 million people in the US suffer fromsome type of eating disorder and this has given rise to a number of clinics or treatmentcenters for Anorexia, which is the medical term for an eating disorder. Anorexia, over along period of time can prove fatal. It is characterized either by excessive eating or noeating at all, recurrent vomiting after overeating and maniacal calorie counting.Treatment centers for anorexia first try to identify the causes of eating disorders. Thepatient, who usually suffers from insecurity or is unable to cope with social and peerpressure. The root cause is first identified and the patient is put through counselingsessions to restore self confidence.The correct treatment plan adopted for those with eating disorders by treatmentcenters for Anorexia is a combination of comprehensive and holistic methods that areunique to the individual’s body and mind. For some people, nutritional counselingcombined with group and individual therapy will bring about the desired changes in theirattitudes about body image and food habits. For others, residential treatment orhospitalization may be necessary.Treatment Centers for Anorexia usually adopt the four primary types of treatment foreating disorders. These are: Support groups through which the individual is able to seethat others too, are suffering from the same malady and this helps them out of theirisolation; one-on one individual therapy to improve self-image and to find the root causeof their condition. This type of therapy also helps patients learn better ways of handlingstress or emotional difficulties.Residential eating disorders treatment is resorted to when the patient’s condition is
  3. 3. acute. Through nutritional counseling also a trained dietician can plan out a healthy mealregime for the patient in order to maintain normal body weight without obsessing aboutfoods, calories or weight. Treatment centers for Anorexia do point out that eatingdisorders require a great deal of time to cure. A proper combination of therapy andmedical treatment is mandatory. So is time and family support. Dual Diagnosis Drug DilemmasTo be diagnosed with any form of addiction is hard enough for any individual and his/herfamily. But when it is the case of a dual diagnosis then few people get their minds in theright place to know what to do and when to do it. It is natural for us to offer help andassistance when we see a loved one suffering. We do it out of care and compassion tohelp him/her out of his/her misery. But sometimes helping is hurting.Firstly, when we grow sympathetic towards a family member who is undergoing, dualdiagnosis treatment, we actually give provisions or leave a lot of space to be manipulatedourselves. Addicts and alcoholics are master manipulators. They will tend to manipulatepersons and circumstances in order to preserve their source of intoxication or high. Theywill manipulate family members and friends so that they can continue to abuse drugs orconsume alcohol. It is under the influence of the addiction and it is no way connected totheir character. We instinctively give way to the manipulation has we have grown to bemore lenient towards him/her and we do not understand the underlying cravings in allthose pleas.Secondly, a family should never help an addict financially to continue satisfying his/hercravings, nor should they try to set right the chaos that is created by him/her in thetrance of addiction. If a family does this then the addict learns to shrug responsibility andreality. If a family supports an addict, undergoing dual diagnosis, financially, then theyare unconsciously pushing him/her into further depths of abuse as then the individualfeel it unnecessary to seek employment or get in touch with support groups andultimately drive himself/herself further in to the murky depths of addiction. Families ofpatients undergoing dual diagnosis treatment or PTSD dual treatment are toldabout this beforehand or when they are being counseled.It is only the addict, with dual diagnosis, who has to take responsibility for both theproblems and the recovery process. It is often seen that addiction arises frompsychological problems—this is nobody’s fault and is unfortunate indeed. The patient
  4. 4. must learn to face his/her devils without drug or alcohol abuse, to ensure completerecovery. The family plays a major part in the process—the patient must be constantlypumped with positivity; but the family should avoid easy love as—tough love and apositive attitude is all that is needed.
