Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about drug addiction treatment:
Is My Addiction Bad Enough to Seek Professional Help?
If you are unsure about seeking help for your drug problem because you think it is not “bad enough”, you are not alone. It can be difficult to admit that you have a problem, or maybe you genuinely believe you don’t have one, but this can delay the process of seeking help. In order to help you understand your level of dependency, ask yourself these questions:
- Do you ever lose control while using drugs?
- Have you thought about quitting using but don’t know how?
- Do you spend a lot of time trying to track down drugs?
- Do you find yourself struggling with cravings when you aren’t using drugs?
- Are you experiencing problems with your relationships because of drug use?
- Do you feel a lack of responsibility, or exhibit a lack of responsibility, in your life?
- Have you lost interest in things that used to be enjoyable to you?
- Have you had to increase the amount of the drug you use to get the same feelings?
- Do you experience symptoms of withdrawal when you aren’t using drugs such as cramps, sweating, irritability, and nausea?
- Do you find yourself going into dangerous situations to get access to drugs?
- Have you lost your job or are in danger of losing your job because of drug use?
If you find yourself answering yes to one or more of these questions, you might need to consider seeking help. When you realize your drug use is severe enough to seek treatment, you need to prepare yourself for treatment.
How Do I Prepare for Dealing with My Drug Addiction Through Rehab?
When you have decided to seek help from Resurgence Behavioral Health, there are a number of things you should do in order to prepare for your treatment. These include speaking to your family and employer about having to put your life on hold for a little, while you seek the treatment that can help you get well. It can be overwhelming to think about giving up aspects of your life for a while, but it is vital that you commit yourself entirely to our program in order to get the most out of it. You should also ensure that you have made arrangements for someone to take over your bill payments, look after any pets you have, and take care of your home while you are away. While it may be tempting to take a lot of your belongings with you to rehab, it is important that you only bring what you need. Some people come into drug rehab with just the clothes on their back because they feel so strongly about needing a fresh start. Take what you need and leave the rest at home. This can help you feel less overwhelmed about having to prepare to leave home.
What is Involved in Rehab Programs?
The purpose of our drug addiction program is to help you start to re-focus your life, right away. A typical day in our residential rehab program will start with a healthy breakfast and a morning meeting, either with your counselor, therapist, or case manager. Depending on the meeting, you may be by yourself or with a group. The afternoons are spent in more meetings and therapy sessions, which might include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy or special sessions to deal with your particular type of drug addiction.
Sometimes, guest speakers will join in the meetings to tell you about their experiences getting clean and sober. Our clients find this can really help them relate to the program. Resurgence Behavioral Health tailors treatment programs to the needs of the individual person. So while the bulk of treatment is the same for most people, specialized treatment is designed based on your own needs, so that you get the most out of your treatment experience with us.
How Long Does the Treatment of Drug Addiction Take?
This is a tough question to answer because every person who comes to Resurgence Behavioral Health has a unique situation. So many factors come into play when it comes to beating addiction. There are a number of standard rehabilitation treatment programs including 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day drug addiction programs, but whether or not you’re successful in those time frames is up to you. When you work with the dedicated and professional team at Resurgence, we will help you decide which type of program is right for you and your needs. While we work diligently to help you overcome your addiction, we still need you to want to get clean and sober.
What Medications Are Used To Treat Drug Addiction?
When it comes to treating drug addiction, a common approach is to help people wean off of the harder drugs with prescription medications. There are a number of medications that are used to help patients deal with the pain and discomfort associated with withdrawal, and they can help ease the symptoms of cravings. This is part of the detox process, which is available based on medical need.
During the withdrawal/detoxification stage, your body starts to rid itself of the toxins related to your drug use. This can cause a great deal of discomfort and physical pain, including anxiety, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, sweating, and seizures. In order to help people combat these symptoms, the medical staff at Resurgence may prescribe drugs that reduce anxiety, irritability and physical discomfort.
What is Life Like After Treatment?
Attending addiction treatment at Resurgence is a big first step in dedicating yourself to getting clean and sober, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t need to work to stay that way when you leave us. It is going to be up to you to make the commitment to stay away from drugs, and to continue to follow aftercare suggestions and guidelines to maintain a successful sobriety. There are a number of options available to you when you complete our program, including ongoing therapy sessions, group therapy, counseling, support groups, check ups with your own doctor, and more.
