People go into drug rehab to recover from debilitating drug addictions. These people have made an important choice—to stop letting drugs ruin their lives. They’ve also realized that a drug addiction is a huge problem to tackle; something they can’t tackle alone.
Drug rehab facilities are an excellent place to get help. They offer treatment programs and are run by professionals used to dealing with all sorts of addictions.
Inpatient facilities are most suited for people with a long history of addiction. These are the people who need constant supervision, both to keep them from relapsing, and to monitor their health in case of withdrawal complications.
An outpatient facility allows a user to attend the programs and get treated, but still go out and work or go home to their families. Because patients are not always monitored, this facility is more suitable for low-risk addicts.
A detox program helps users slowly reduce their drug intake until their bodies aren’t dependent on it anymore. Most detox programs also provide supporting medication in case of withdrawal.
Support groups are the mental side of treatment, and allow users the chance to mend ties with their families and develop the tools they need to cope with the temptation to use drugs again.
