Making the decision to go to treatment for substance abuse can definitely be the right choice for an addict. But sometimes the concept of what “rehab” is all about can be distorted by movie plots and celebrity rehab stories. So, do you know what an effective chemical dependency rehabilitation program is really like? There are many urban legends about drug and alcohol rehabs in Fayetteville, North Carolina and other locations.
Although all substance abuse rehabs have a standardized set of treatments, each center is unique. Outcomes can be highly affected mostly by the amount of time spent in the program. Short-term rehabs rarely work. The most effective rehabs will last several months, not a few days, since it requires that long to eliminate the influence of the addiction from their system, and to [begin to instill truth, positive thinking and responsibility for a successful future.
Each drug or alcohol abuser has a different life experience with drugs and alcohol. What launched the initial use and subsequent addiction can be quite different for each individual. So, getting to the bottom of it will often take different approaches and some initial therapy. Addictions are often triggered by an emotional or physical pain, or a void in the person’s life, so those must be dealt with simultaneously or the addiction cannot be eliminated. Often called “dual-diagnosis” treatment, this combined therapy is essential, but not provided in all rehabs.
An addiction is affected by an area of the brain referred to as the Mesolimbic Dopamine System. This system is not something that a person can consciously manage. So, it is quite difficult for an addict to connect the logic of unhealthy and negative behavior to their addiction. Whether or not the addict opened the door to the addiction, to begin with, is irrelevant to their option to stop it. Once Pandora’s Box is opened, it takes more than the addict alone to stop it.
It is true that a vast majority of addicts will hit “rock bottom” due to their addiction, before they will enter a drug and alcohol rehab, in a lucid moment of self-preservation. But all addicts are motivated differently, and have different levels of their addiction. For that reason, some may be convinced to stop their addiction by loved ones, while others may need to nearly die before they’ll get help. Common motivators include, but are not limited to: family pressure, legal issues, illness or near-death experiences, or finances. Unfortunately, many choose to avoid rehab until there’s no other option, but this does not describe all addicts or alcoholics, so don’t wait!
If you or someone you love is involved in a harmful addiction to drugs or alcohol, it is advisable to seek addiction treatment help as soon as possible. The longer the addiction goes on, the harder it will be to curtail it. In contacting a substance abuse rehab, you can get quick answers to any questions you may have. It is always the right decision to at least start to research the options for addiction treatment.
