San Diego Drug Rehab
San Diego Drug Rehab Center
In 2012, an estimated 23.9 million Americans aged 12 or older had used an illicit drug or abused a psychotherapeutic medication (such as a pain reliever, stimulant, or tranquilizer) within the past month. Drug use is the highest among people in their late teens and early twenties.
The Effects of Drug Abuse and Addiction
The effects of drug abuse and addiction are far-reaching, including: medical, psychiatric, economic, legal, and family problems. An individual may deny they have a problem, or feel as if it’s under control. It’s not uncommon for family and friends to minimize the problem in hopes that it’s not as bad as they fear. Admitting to a substance abuse problem can be overwhelming, but treatment is necessary.
Family & Friends Support is Crucial
When dealing with drug addiction, it’s almost impossible to overcome alone. The support of family and friends is crucial, but you also need the help of experience professionals. DetoxRehab is here to help. Combined, our staff has helped over 20,000 individuals through the drug addiction recovery process. Our team includes an addiction medicine physician and insights from a former addict. The result is an intensive recovery program with long-term support. Every patient that comes to us has their own history and story. Because of this we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach and tailor our programs according to a patient’s specific needs.
Types of Substances for Drug Rehab
We work with all types of substance abuse, including, but not limited to: cocaine addiction, Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction, heroin addiction, marijuana addiction, methamphetamine addiction, and opiate addiction.
The first step in drug addiction rehab is detox. Detoxification is an abrupt ending to substance intake and is necessary in order for the patient to cleanse his or her body of all traces of the substance they are abusing. It’s advised that an individual seeking treatment for drug addiction first enter a detox facility where their withdrawal symptoms can be closely monitored by trained medical professionals. There are various symptoms associated with drug withdrawal, depending on the type of drug that was being abused. Quite often a patient will experience symptoms such as, but not limited to the following: nausea, vomiting, seizures, anxiety, fatigue, and headaches.
During the detoxification process a patient may require other medical attention including vitamin supplements and other medications to reduce cravings while also treating the withdrawal symptoms. Home therapy without medical supervision can be life-threatening as most individuals are not trained to deal with the withdrawal symptoms. The staff at DetoxRehab is well versed in treating patients as they move through the withdrawal symptoms.
Behavioral Therapy Program
After completing the detox process, which varies depending on the substance that was being abused, it’s advised that a patient enter a behavioral therapy program. During this time a patient receives counseling that addresses the reasons behind the patient’s addiction. Rehab therapy is meant to help a patient confront the psychological reason behind their addiction. It’s not unnatural for a patient to experience fatigue, depression, mood swings, and anxiety during the counseling process. The team at DetoxRehab has the experience to support and help any patient during what can be a very difficult time.
Detox Rehab -Treatment Porgram
For patients who are further along in their treatment and able to work as an out-patient that does not need close monitoring, DetoxRehab’s drugrehab program includes off-peak counseling sessions in both the early morning and late evening. It is structured this way to emphasize client privacy and the opportunity to continue working while in recovery. Remaining engaged in a program providesindividuals with support and the best possible chance for continued and successful recovery. Because of this, we offer our follow-up services for up to five years after you complete the detox portion of your treatment.
Combining an effective detox program with an equally effective rehabilitation program is necessary to handling a patient’s drug addiction. Our DetoxRehab facility is able to offer optimum support and safety while offering a program that has proven effective for many other individuals.
