The Benefits of Drug Rehab
Perhaps you have made the significant first step of acknowledging that you have a problem with drugs or alcohol. Drug rehab is the next crucial step in building a strong foundation for lasting recovery. There are many factors that play a role in this process. A large study of nearly 1,200 addicts showed that extended abstinence predicted long-term recovery. Among the study findings:
- About a third of people who were abstinent less than a year remained abstinent.
- Less than 50% of people who attained one year of sobriety relapsed.
- The risk of relapse was less than 15% once people hit the five-year sobriety mark.
The Benefits of Drug Rehab Centers
Residential treatment centers provide a multidisciplinary approach to addiction recovery. Many people prefer to stay in a residential drug rehab center located in a private beautiful setting, such as Promises Malibu. A warm, welcoming environment awaits clients who detoxify and cleanse their bodies of toxins at Promises. While detoxification varies from client to client, the process typically includes medical supervision, medication, exercise, dietary modifications and more.
Care is provided in a structured treatment environment that begins with withdrawal/detoxification and extends through treatment strategies following discharge. Drug rehab encompasses education targeted at teaching clients about addiction and what triggers it. After a person thoroughly understands what has happened to their body and mind, they are better equipped to take control of their lives. At Promises, therapists work closely with clients to identify personal stressors and triggers, as well as any obstacles they might face when they leave rehab.
Exceptional care and support are provided throughout one’s stay, including one-on-one therapy, group therapy and numerous complementary therapies such as acupuncture, yoga, meditation, equine therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and more.
