Detox is the process whereby harmful chemicals are flushed from the patient’s body. This is often the most critical and challenging stage of rehab. Once the patient navigates detox with the help of doctors and clinicians, they are ready for medication assisted therapy.
Cognitive therapy plays an important role in helping the patient discover how their own thinking patterns and actions have played a role in their addiction. The patient may still receive medications while therapy is being administered. Individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy may also play an integral role depending on counselor and doctor recommendations. Addiction affects the lives of everyone involved.
Family members can play a key role in helping their loved one recover. Quite often, family relationships have either been destroyed or are on the brink of destruction. Family therapy can help family members pick up the pieces of their own life as well. With the right counseling, they can gain a better understanding of their loved one’s addiction. They can also learn if they played a role in that addiction.
The rehab process can take up to three months or longer depending on the patient’s state of health, the addiction severity, and their willingness to complete their program. The best plan of action is to seek immediate clinical help when an addiction occurs.
