The War of Drug Addiction

\If you are suffering from a drug addiction problem, you are in need of professional treatment. You can‘t deny. You can not defeat an addiction like the kinds drugs create on your own. No, you can not replace a drug addiction with another addiction. . You can’t change your diet and expect to get off drugs. There is no magic solution to get off drugs. The only thing there is to do is seek treatment.

There are a lot of people who try to fight drugs on their own. These people attempt to treat themselves with the little to no knowledge they have of fighting drugs. Most people who try this fail miserably. They just don’t have the skills and experience they need to quit drugs alone. If a drug addict is looking to quit, they need to look for professional help.

Professional drug rehab treatment centers are regarded as professional because that is what they are. Treatment centers have a staff of highly experienced doctors, counselors, and teachers who know the steps that must be taken to fight drug addiction. The professionals at the center determine how serious a drug addiction is. They are able to pick a program that you need in order to get off using drugs.

Drug rehab treatment is designed to address a number of factors that are included with drug addiction. First, the professionals at the drug rehab treatment center have to address what type and the level of the addiction you have. This helps them to determine which program would be best for you. The next step obviously involves being placed into a program. The programs usually are in sessions of 30, 60, or 90 days. You move into the drug rehab treatment facility and are searched to make sure you have nothing that will tempt you or remind you of drugs. You are then placed on a schedule. On weekdays your days start right at dawn. All patients eat breakfast together and everyone is required to help clean up. After the community breakfast you have two classes. One usually addresses how to live a healthy life without drugs, and then a 12 step class. 15 minute breaks are allowed between each class and/or activity. The third class of the day is a yoga and/or meditation class which attempts to calm the body and mind. A community lunch follows yoga and meditation. A sort of psychology class is follows lunch, a class that addresses addiction and how to fight it and win. For the next two hours patients are expected to spend time in the gym and health center. After all, health is the main goal of drug rehab treatment so it should be practiced in full. Once gym time is over, dinner is served and the patients are allowed to relax for the rest of the night. During relaxation hours, patients are allowed to watch pre-approved movies and television programs, read authorized books, work on art or writing projects, or just rest. Also, everyone is expected to be in their rooms by 10:00 PM and asleep by 11:00 PM.

Weekend schedules allow for a bit more freedom. On the weekends family and friends can visit during certain hours. Patients are allowed to sleep in as well as take a day or two off exercising. Art and group activities are often scheduled for the patients. These activities help the patients to express themselves in healthy and productive ways. Also, community service activities are required at least once a weekend. Often rehab patients will help with park or beach clean ups or food drives.

The schedule might sound strict, but most people find it necessary. The structure of drug rehab treatment is designed in this manner for a reason. Everyone who has been successful with drug rehab states that they felt very supported while going through treatment. Similarly, they all state that they would not be able to get clean if it were not for professional drug rehab treatment. So take it from those who have been there, seek help.

Drug rehab treatment proves successful on many levels. Drug addiction is a war that can not be fought alone.
