Drug and alcohol addiction are illnesses that can be extremely difficult to overcome without help. These problems affect every area of an individual’s life and thoughts, setting up negative expectations about what life without the drug would be like. Many men and women try to cut down on the amount of the substance they are using, but after suffering withdrawal symptoms, they relapse back into abuse. The reinforcement effect of the relief felt when returning to their regular dose is a strong deterrent against cutting down, much less no longer taking the drug at all.
When a man or women first seeks treatment, they typically go through an outpatient program. However, as each type of substance abuse frequently co-occurs with other types of substance use as well as psychological problems such as anxiety or depression, attempting to get a handle on this complex combination of problems in a traditional outpatient setting can be difficult to accomplish. Since the person returns to the same environment that is associated with their substance use, the stress of their responsibilities in various areas of their lives, the expectations others may have for them and triggers to their substance use it is not unusual for them to relapse. That is where inpatient treatment can play a critical role in recovery.
In order to get away from all the stressors, responsibilities, expectations and triggers associated with your substance use, you can take advantage of the ability to focus exclusively on your rehab efforts away from all these factors in a safe, supportive environment. An environment that provides intense substance abuse treatment using therapeutic approaches whose efficacy have been demonstrated makes an inpatient program the ideal setting for this type of intervention. Even those who may have not succeeded in fighting their addiction in outpatient settings can triumph over their addiction in an inpatient setting. Inpatient alcohol and/or drug rehab is not always easy or comfortable. However, if you approach your recovery from addiction with patience and with an open and positive attitude, you can change the course of your life. We know this from experience. We’ve seen how powerful the recovery process is and how positively it changes lives.
The real key to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction – to living a full, happy and healthy life – is to understand the disease of addiction and to learn new behaviors and coping skills.
