Drug addiction is a complicated problem, and it’s not something that appears overnight. By the time you get to the point where you are looking at seeking addiction treatment that works, you may have been struggling with a dependency issue for a number of years. It wouldn’t be realistic to expect to conquer it overnight and develop the tools you need to live a sober lifestyle right away.
A Time to Heal
Total recovery from drugs is possible, but you need to give yourself time and space to heal. When you choose to check in to an inpatient treatment program, you are declaring that you and your health matter. Many people start using drugs as a way to cut themselves off from people and situations that are negative or have caused them pain. This may have been the case for you. It was easier to check out by using drugs than to deal with stuff in your life that you didn’t want to or couldn’t face.
A long-term treatment program deals with both aspects of this issue: you will go through detox, where you will rid your body of the physical effects of the drugs. After that point, you will move on to a custom addiction treatment program. Each person is different, which means that the specific plan would be tailored to the client’s specific needs. A treatment plan may include the following:
- Attending NA or similar program meetings
- One-on-one sessions with an addictions counselor
- Meeting with a therapist
- Group therapy sessions with clients
Look After Your Physical Health at the Treatment Center
While you are looking at the underlying issues that caused you to turn to drugs, you’ll need to learn how to improve your physical health. Part of the treatment program at an impatient program includes instruction in nutrition. You’ll have the chance to participate in fitness classes, hiking and other enjoyable activities.
Part of the process of learning how to put all the pieces of yourself together and make sense of it all may include meditation and reflection. You can learn these skills as part of your treatment at the program. The counselors will help you move forward into sobriety. All you need is a willingness to change.
