Going to drug rehab can be source of contention for an addict. While their family and friends will likely want them to go, the addict themselves might be resistant. A person that is addicted to drugs may or may not be at a place where they are able to admit that they have a problem and then seek help for it. Even those who recognize that their drug use is out of control may still be hesitant about entering a drug rehab facility. This may be for a variety of reasons. We will discuss a few of them below.

Individuals may not want to leave their current life or lifestyle even though they recognize that they have a serious problem. They may also not be ready to give up drugs because they are dependent on them not just physically but also psychologically and emotionally. Individuals will likely have some underlying issues that the drug helps them deal with and so they are not ready to throw away that crutch. However, drug rehab can be a wonderful resource for people that give it a try. Sometimes people who are addicted to drugs and aren’t 100% convinced that they are ready to enter rehab may still be able to turn things around and benefit from the experience.

There are many different types of drug rehab. The most common are residential treatment, outpatient treatment and support groups. Residential treatment is generally the most intensive. Individuals receive care around the clock and will also eat and sleep at the facility. Some residential treatments will also have detox services available. If the drug rehab center offers medical detox, there should be a doctor on staff.

Typically, residential or inpatient drug rehab is ideal for persons that have a severe addiction and who wouldn’t do well outside of a closed and protective environment. These individuals would likely have a high rate of relapse if they went back to their homes or the environment from which they came. Residential care sequesters the addict from people and gets him or her away from the drug. It also puts them around people who are committed to helping them get clean.

There may be a number of restrictions in place at an inpatient drug rehab program. For example, they may not be able to contact their family or friends for a specific amount of time. This will change as a person grows stronger and stops using.

Outpatient drug rehab facilities are the most commonly available. This is because they only require individuals to visit the facility when they have an appointment. This may be for counseling or some sort of class. Outpatient drug rehab is also typically less expensive, which make them very attractive. It also takes up less of a person’s time. They can continue with their life outside of the rehab center. Individuals would be able to keep their job and take care of their family, which is a huge advantage.

Support groups involve individuals getting together (they may present addicts or have overcome their drug addiction) and share their experiences and struggles. There are often great in conjunction with a rehab program. Probably the most popular one for drug addiction is Narcotics Anonymous. Support groups provide a healthy environment where attendees support each getting and staying clean.
