Fear and apprehension are oftentimes the biggest obstacles to rehabilitation, which typically is a long and challenging process that will most often require professional help along the way. Combining the appropriate support and guidance, you can conquer your substance abuse problem.
At Drug Rehab Program Scranton we have a wide range of addiction treatment programs for clients that arrive at our rehab center suffering with addiction. Clients that get addicted to substances like percocet, vicodin, lortab, heroin, meth and other drugs that cause addiction usually don't know how to recover by themselves without help. We have helped countless struggling addicts to overcome their addiction by means of our comprehensive rehabilitation methods.
The initial step of our treatment program is our detox process. After a person has consumed an addictive substance over an extended period of time a dependence develops for the drug. When this happens it may be not medically safe to suddenly stop using the drug without professional assistance from a medically monitored detox procedure. Addictive drugs such as alcohol, valium, cocaine, heroin, meth, crack, demerol, fentanyl and many others produce a wide variety of withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, agitation, insomnia, muscle aches, sweating, vomiting, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea and more.
At Drug Treatment Program Scranton we offer the needed medical supervision to help out clients be as safe and comfortable as possible through the detoxification period. We offer 24 hour around the clock care during this very important first phase in the rehabilitation process. Our clients often state that they feel a renewed sense of hope once they have finished the detoxification program.
An essential aspect of beating addiction is to realize that you have a problem. A person who refuses to accept they are addicted will not be able to take strides to fix the problem they deny they have. For many, when it comes down to taking a honest look into their addiction situation, also requires the individual to look at why and how they got addicted in the first place. Addiction typically occurs when someone starts taking the drug or alcohol to self-medicate in order to minimize negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions. If an individual doesn't figure out the source issues fueling their addiction and does not reach out for help, it will be almost impossible for them to conquer their addiction.
Recognizing that you have a problem is a very important step of recovery from drug addiction or alcoholism. In addition you also need to have the desire to do what is needed to change your life. Taking a look at all the reasons for making a change will help you navigate the road to rehabilitation. Many people find it helpful to write down the reasons why they want to put an end to their addiction. Reasons could include wanting to be a better mother/father, experience more joy in life, to be the person you really want to be, repair damaged relationships, to improve your health, or to reverse other negative situations that addiction causes.
Do not just concentrate and be absorbed on the circumstances and problems caused by your substance abuse, as focusing too much on the negative consequences of the past usually makes one feel hopeless. Rather, embrace your new addiction-free life and recovery. Think about the positive things that will surely happen when you have recovered from addiction. At Drug Rehabilitation Center Scranton we will help you to embrace your new opportunities for a new, brighter future. A new life fulfilling past forgotten dreams and goals in your newly created addiction-free lifestyle. You will be healthier, have more energy and enthusiasm, be more secure financially, have lasting relationships, be more productive overall, and have time to enjoy and experience new hobbies. Taking the time to write down these goals can keep you excited and motivated throughout the rehabilitation process.
Long Term Rehabilitation Plan
At Drug Treatment Center Scranton we have learned that the most important factor in determining success is whether the person has completely overcome their addiction to drugs and alcohol. Success can only be measured by the patient's belief in their ability to remain clean. Short term rehab programs typically fall short of this goal.
We feel that it is extremely important not to be under time restraints when in rehab. The time that you spend in treatment can provide a lifetime of sobriety, it is completely worth the investment of whatever time that it requires. We locate the underlying issues that will be at the root of the addiction. We will help you to repair the problems that you have caused in your life so that you are not filled with senses of overwhelming shame, regret and disappointment. You will be taught life skills, coping skills and relapse prevention methods so that you are not only sober when you leave, but know how to stay sober for the rest of your life. We know that you want your life back and we are here to provide you a way to achieve it.
The only person who can change you is you. At Drug Rehabilitation Facility Scranton it helps to be immersed in a strong support network to help you succeed. Therefore, hold onto the people in your life that are supportive and positive. On the other hand, be cautious about maintaining the unhealthy relationships in your life, for example past associates that still use drugs, or relationships with people that make you feel incapable or inadequate.
Detoxification is only the first step in a long process of recovery at Drug Treatment Center Scranton; But will also help you to learn the triggers of your addiction.
