Rehabilitation services, whether it’s for a substance abuse problem or a behavioural addiction is a place in which a process of medical and psychotherapeutic treatments are delivered in order to help an addict remove an addiction from their life. Effective and caring rehabilitation services are a hugely positive presence in the life of an addict, however it isn’t an easy decision sending a loved one to a treatment centre. Nor is it easy going through rehabilitation itself.
That being said, rehab is the only way to help a loved one seeking help for their addiction. A question asked by many however, is how exactly does rehabilitation help with addiction? What’s involved?
Rehabilitation – What Does It Do?
Rehabilitation helps with addiction recovery in numerous ways. Below, we’ve listed some of the most specific ways addiction rehab facilities such as those offered by Infinity Addiction Solutions can help…
Removal From The Influence
The first way that addiction rehabilitation facilities can help is by removing the influence from your life. While the cravings won’t go, the influence will. Detoxification will be needed, which will clean your body of any substances – likewise the ability to gamble or participate in any behavioural addiction will likely be removed also. Once an addict is free from the influence of their drug of choice, they’ll also likely experience a number of things, such as clarity and an influx of different emotions that substances or habits may have been numbing.
It’s likely that besides the cravings, an addict may not have a real clear idea of what their addiction is doing to them. This is due to addiction causing significant changes to the body and mind. Part of the treatment process in rehab is to help better educate individuals on behaviours, changes to their body and mind as well as the best ways to counteract the problems caused. Education is knowledge and knowledge is power.
Counselling & Therapy
Counselling and therapy are one of the most significant ways in which rehab can help an addict. It’s during these sessions that one can channel down into the real reasons the addiction began in the first place. By addressing the root causes, effective treatment can begin. From one-to-one therapy to group counselling, all therapies will help those struggling address their addiction and begin to overcome them.
Tools & Resources
In the right rehabilitation facility, an addict won’t just receive treatment to help overcome their addiction there and then, but will receive tools and resources to provide them with a long term solution. They’ll be given the tools to recognise possible relapse, how to avoid it and how to change their lifestyle for the better to avoid addiction in future.
