Drug rehabilitation is a program of therapy to help an individual overcome drug addiction and to assist them in reaching a state of optimum health once the addiction has been defeated. Whilst there are many common elements to all drug rehabilitation programs, each one is designed around the needs of the individual and varies with the type of drug being abused.
Drug rehabilitation programs can be accessed through your GP or directly through a private drug rehab clinic. As with any addiction, the first step towards recovery is to admit that there is a problem, and that the drug or substance being taken has control over you.
Drug rehabilitation normally involves a detoxification program to help re-balance your system and dull the cravings for the drug being abused. Medication to help manage withdrawal is also available along with extensive and intensive psychological, emotional and physical support to help prevent relapses.
But, overcoming drug addiction is a difficult road. Relapses are common and drug rehabilitation programs recognise this. Specific help is normally on hand to coach people who have suffered a relapse and to give them a helping hand that puts them back on the road to full recovery.
