What Is Drug Rehab?

Drug rehabilitation and addiction recovery combine therapy, examination, counseling, and education. Rehab programs are intended to help clients discover, diagnose, and treat drug addiction and co-occurring disorders. Many programs include medical detox to ease withdrawal symptoms and reduce the risk of reuse. Common drug rehab programs include:

  • Inpatient – In this type of program, the patient lives at the clinic and undergoes a rigorous medical detox, nutrition programs, and counseling schedule for a fixed duration. This can last 30-90 days—most people in inpatient programs transition to outpatient or sober living homes.
  • Outpatient – Outpatient programs allow the individual to live at home and receive treatment several times per week at the facility. They spend several hours at the clinic for therapy and medical detox.
  • Intensive Outpatient – While this program allows the patient to live at home, it requires more than double the treatment time each week than standard outpatient programs.
  • Partial Hospitalization – PHP is the most rigorous outpatient program, requiring most of the day to be spent at the clinic.

All types of drug rehab programs generally include:

  • One-on-one counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Medical detox
  • Physical exercise and sports
  • Nutritional education
  • Behavioral therapies like CBT and DBT
  • Anger management
  • Life skills training
  • Aftercare planning
  • Dual diagnosis – specialized treatment for co-occurring disorders such as depression or anxiety

No matter the type of treatment, drug rehab is the safest way to break addiction cycles and survive withdrawal without relapse.

Do I Need Drug Rehab?

Deciding it’s time for drug rehab can be overwhelming. Drug use is a form of self-medication for co-occurring disorders like anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, PTSD, and bipolar disorder. If you’re using prescription or illicit drugs, these are some signs it’s time for rehab:

  • Drug cravings
  • Withdrawal symptoms
  • Mood swings
  • Increased drug use
  • Thinking about drugs all the time
  • Hiding drugs
  • Taking prescriptions that aren’t yours
  • Drug-seeking behavior
  • A change in drug tolerance
  • Confusion
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hallucinations
  • Irritability
  • Panic attacks
  • Feeling you need drugs to survive
  • Changes in weight
  • Changes in sleep
  • Changes in personal hygiene

Contrary to popular beliefs, drug addiction affects people from all walks of life. Many people living with drug addiction have jobs, families, and schools. This can lead to hiding addiction and putting off treatment. Outpatient programs can help people with busy schedules recover without leaving home.
