Drug Rehab Q & A

What is drug rehab?

The word rehabilitation means to restore health and normalcy after a period of disruption. Drug rehab is the process of working through the causal factors that led to your drug addiction and developing the skills needed to make healthier choices in the future.

Drug rehab begins after a period of detoxification in which your body eliminates any remaining drugs from your system. It’s never a fast or easy process, but it is one that absolutely changes the course of your life.

What role does therapy play in drug rehab?

Therapy is an essential element in the drug rehab process. Individual therapy helps you uncover the motivating factors that led to your addiction. It usually involves an honest and unflinching assessment of the past and how things came to be as they are now.

The next step focuses on learning strategies to cope with stress, manage time more wisely, and find new pursuits and hobbies to fill the void left by drug abuse. This includes learning to identify triggers that can lead to relapse. A primary goal of talk therapy is to identify and change negative thought patterns that lead to drug use.

Family therapy can help by involving loved ones in the therapeutic process and providing a mediated setting where everyone has their voices heard. Group therapy with others in recovery helps underscore the fact that no one is alone on this journey, and that there are lessons to be learned from the experiences of others.

How is medication used in drug rehab?

Drug use alters the neurological pathways in your brain, essentially rewiring the way you process stress, pleasure, and other emotions. Maintenance medications are prescription drugs used to reduce the urge to abuse drugs and relieve withdrawal symptoms.

At 2nd Chance, medication maintenance is offered using two medications: buprenorphine/naloxone and naltrexone. Both help support drug rehab by changing the way your brain processes opiates, thereby reducing the urge to continue using those drugs.

Your recovery process is unique, and depends on many different factors. At 2nd Chance, you have the support and guidance of a team of specialists who find the right balance of therapy and medication to help you move beyond addiction and toward a healthier and happier life.
