Beating Drug AddictionDrug Rehab Basics Although the thought of going to rehab might be unnerving, it in most cases is absolutely necessary for recovery.

In most cases, addicts cannot overcome all of the challenges from their addiction and must turn to professional help in a rehab facility.

There are different types of rehabs with different levels of treatment. To learn more about rehabs and their benefits continue to read this chapter.

Rehab Basics

There are some general things you should know about rehab if you are thinking about going to one. The following information should be beneficial for you when it comes to this decision.

Most rehabs have an unlocked room door policy but lock the doors that enter and exit the facility. There is a possibility that you may need to share a room with other patients while in certain rehabs, if this is an issue for you make sure you check their policy on this first.

There are also rehabs that are lock down facilities. These are comparable to jails and most people in these facilities were court ordered to be there.

Once you enter rehab you will meet with a drug counselor quite quickly. They will figure out what addiction issues you have and begin coming up with a plan for treatment.

You will also meet with a nurse who will ask you about your medical history and have a check-up on you. During your stay at the rehab your medication will be possessed and dispensed by this nurse.

This is to avoid the temptation of abusing your medication. You will have counseling and group therapy sessions that you will be required to attend on a regular basis.

There may also be group sporting events that take place or outings that you will be expected to participate in. All of this is intended to provide you with the best treatment possible and to give you the most help possible.

You must be honest with your counselors at the rehab. Do not be in a rush to return home, being dishonest to your counselor to leave quicker will likely result in failure with your addiction battle.

Although it may hurt to be away from home it is for the best and will provide you with a much better future, a healthier life, more money, and better relationships.

If a stay-in rehab is not an option for you, there are also rehabs that offer live at home out-patient treatment. You must be careful if taking this option though because it will not separate you from ways of obtaining drugs which can put you at risk of using. Most rehabs will have followed up programs for addicts that leave.
