How Joining a Substance Abuse Treatment Program Could Change Your Life for the Better

a-drug-rehab-program-2

Drug and Alcohol addiction are serious problems that not only affect men and women of all ages and demographics, but also their families, friends, coworkers, etc. Without the necessary physical and psychological support, it can be nearly impossible to completely overcome addiction and dependency. That’s why for countless individuals, substance abuse treatment programs are one of the best possible options for achieving long-term recovery and sobriety.

Some of the Major Benefits of Substance Abuse Treatment Programs

  • Individualized Treatment Plans

Treatment programs such as the one offered at Cares Community Health use in-depth diagnostic tests, physical exams and psychological assessments to help create a drug treatment plan tailored to your unique health needs, recovery goals, family medical history, etc.

Opting for a personalized treatment plan (as opposed to the less-than-ideal, one-size-fits-all plans) means your specific substance(s) of choice and time durations of chemical dependency will be factored into the treatment, thereby increasing your chances of a successful, long-term recovery.

  • Confidential Psychiatric Care

While certainly not always the case, many people who suffer from severe addiction also have underlying mental health issues. A reputable, high-quality program should not only be capable of effectively rehabilitating patients who struggle with addiction, but also be able to diagnose and treat contributing mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, PTSD, etc.

By tackling both the physical and mental aspects of addiction, patients tend to not only experience better, longer lasting results from their treatment program, but are also better equipped to cope with stress, anger and other types of negative feelings that may have previously prompted them to turn to drugs or alcohol.

  • Group Counseling Sessions

Attending group counseling sessions presents an invaluable opportunity to hear stories from individuals in your area who, just like you, are struggling with addiction in their own unique way. During group therapy patients offer and receive empathy from their peers in a welcoming, completely confidential environment, thereby helping them feel less isolated and more connected with people in their communities who are battling similar issues.

While group therapy is a great option for some people, many still prefer the more intimate alternative of individual therapy where they may feel more comfortable opening up about underlying feelings and struggles. Cares Community Health proudly offers both group and individual therapy options, so you can see firsthand which works best for you.

  • Improved Life Skills

In addition to receiving the support they need to overcome addiction, patients also learn an array of practical, highly beneficial skills – including stress and anger management, interpersonal communication, time and organizational management, healthy coping strategies, etc. – to help them stay sober and lead the healthy, prolific life they deserve.
