The first step in the road to recovery is detoxification. Complete cessation from the drug of choice may result in physical and emotional symptoms depending on the amount and length of time that a particular drug has been abused. Hallucinations, severe shaking, sweating, nausea, sleep deprivation, and eating problems can all result from the abrupt abstinence drugs such as alcohol, heroin, and cocaine. Often medical supervision is necessary to successfully and safely detoxify. Medication may be needed to help ease the physical symptoms of withdrawal. Next, the a specialized program of treatment that will best fit your needs will begin.
More severe cases warrant the need of residential rehabilitation in Ohio. If it is determined that a substance abuser will be tempted to use again after detox then a residential program is probably best suited for him or her. Living at a residential facility will help the patient avoid the temptations of using again if they are not surrounded by the factors that contributed to their addiction. Therapists, nurses, counselors and physicians are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week in order to assist the best possible outcome for the substance abuser.
Each patient has different needs in order to conquer their addiction problem. A residential treatment facility will customize a plan that most effectively targets the substance abuser's weaknesses. It may be determined that a more traditional approach such as the 12 Step program is needed. The 12 Step program is extremely effective in part because of way groups of recovering addicts will reinforce and encourage one another every step of the way, bolstering patients' confidence in rehabilitation and sobriety.
Other patients may require medication, holistic therapy, and intensive psychotherapy as way to best remedy their substance abuse problems. No two plans are the same and each individual patient should have a specialized treatment program tailored to fit their emotional and physical needs. One type of program is outpatient treatment, where patients attend therapy sessions at a particular facility and then leave each day in order to maintain personal responsibilities. Outpatient rehabilitation can be very effective especially if a patient is attached to a sponsor.
A sponsor is usually a recovering addict who shares the same or similar addiction as the patient. The sponsor is most effective at understanding and relating to what the patient is feeling and how to help when feelings of using again may arise. Knowing that there is someone to talk to during times of weakness can often help the patient get through any crisis without having to use again.
