Life can be a harrowing experience for anyone who suffers from dependency to drugs and alcohol, and for the people who have loved ones affected by dependency on drugs and alcohol. Rehabilitation, or rehab, is a treatment method designed to help addicts understand their dependency, learn to recognize and steer clear of triggers that lead them to drink or use drugs, and take the steps necessary to begin life anew as a recovering addict. Virginia Substance Abuse offers a healthy, compassionate atmosphere for addicts who want to start recovering from drugs or alcohol. We create individualized rehabilitation plans to meet the physical, psychological, social, medical, vocational, and emotional requirements of each and every client.
What Does Virginia Substance Abuse Do?
For addicts that don’t realize that their addiction to drugs and alcohol is a serious problem, or who are resistant to treatment, the first step towards recovery is usually an intervention. Friends, family members, and loved ones of an addict plan an organized confrontation with the addict, present examples of how their behavior has harmed themselves and others, and encourage them to enter a rehab center. Addiction Recovery Center VA recommends using a qualified interventionist to plan an effective intervention. Intervention will not prevent an addict from using drugs and/or alcohol again, and it should NOT be confused with rehabilitation. An intervention MUST be followed by rehabilitation.
A period of detox is sometimes necessary before an addict can enter a rehab facility. Detox, or detoxification, is a medically supervised procedure that helps addicts through the worst parts of withdrawal. Certain medications and an IV for hydration and nutrition can be included in this process. For individuals that are hooked on alcohol, opiates, and certain other drugs, detox is an essential stage of rehab, because withdrawal from these substances can actually be deadly without medical assistance. Quitting “cold turkey” can be dangerous, even fatal, though a lot of people mistakenly think it’s safe. It is very important to remember that detox is NOT rehabilitation, and the detox only assists an addict to withdraw from drugs and/or alcohol, not end the addiction.
For people in all stages of addiction, whether they’ve just begun abusing, or if they have a lengthy drug and alcohol abuse habit, Virginia Rehab Centers can provide healthy, effective rehabilitation. Their rehabilitation programs include, but aren’t limited to, treatment for alcohol, opiates (heroin, codeine), prescription drugs (pharmaceuticals, hydrocodone, oxycodone), designer drugs (bath salts, many stimulants), crystal meth, cocaine, hallucinogens, and marijuana. Virginia Substance Abuse provides comprehensive treatment by assessing the roots of the addiction, any contributing psychological factors (like co-occurring disorders), and determining the most productive path towards recovery for each and every individual client.
Virginia Substance Abuse Can Help
Someone who is severely hooked on a drug or alcohol is likely to hurt themselves, and can hurt people they love, too. Dependency is an insidious disease, with potentially tragic consequences. Although there’s no miraculous “cure” for dependency, people who enter qualified, accredited treatment facilities experience the most success in their recovery. Virginia Substance Abuse’s rehabilitation plans are clinically tested and medically proven, and include individual and group therapy meetings, physical and recreational activities, participation in 12-step meetings, behavioral modeling, plus the amenities of inpatient living at the affordable cost of an outpatient facility.
