New to Rehab: Where to Begin

New to Rehab: Where to Begin

A treatment plan helps drug addicts know the goals they want to reach

Beginning addiction treatment can be intimidating, but Sacramento residents can prepare ahead of time for the experience. In fact, they can can expect the following steps in rehab:

  • Admissions – Before entering rehab, drug addicts must go through an extensive admissions process to determine payment options, addiction and other mental health disorders along with what unique needs they have
  • Detox – After completing the admissions process, Sacramento drug addicts must undergo medically supervised detox either on site or at a separate facility to remove drugs from their bodies. Detoxing from certain drugs can be dangerous if conducted without medical supervision, so seek help to break physical dependency.
  • Set a treatment plan – When detox ends, patients meet with a team of professionals to determine their goals for treatment. A treatment plan helps Sacramento drug addicts know the goals they want to reach and the time it may take to do so. A treatment plan is not set in stone, as a client’s individual needs are likely to change during the course of rehab. Instead, these goals serve as a general guideline to professional care.
  • Group therapy – Most rehab programs use group therapy for newly recovering addicts to hear the failures and successes of other addicts. Group therapy sessions typically occur three or more times per day throughout treatment.
  • Individual therapy – One-on-one therapy sessions occur less frequently than group therapy sessions, but these individualized sessions can greatly impact Sacramento drug users. They can also leave room for users to practice the skills they learn in sessions.
  • Family counseling – Many rehab programs provide family counseling that benefit both the family and the addict. This type of care educates everyone about addiction while empowering people to create homes that motivate recovery.
  • Day-to-day – The day-to-day operations of rehab vary widely depending on the type of treatment program. Many healthy activities are available, such as workout areas, game rooms and libraries.
  • Aftercare – Once rehab ends, recovering addicts receive access to aftercare programs that maintain long-term sobriety. Aftercare often includes expectations during the first few months after rehab, along with what problems may pose a relapse risk.

The duration of rehab varies according to a Sacramento resident’s needs. A rehab experience is crucial to recovery, and it is essential to make the most out of the program instead of trying to rush through it. When rehab receives a user’s full attention, it will equip users to handle recovery and to avoid relapse.
