For the many people who are afflicted with dependency to drugs and alcohol, and also for people who have loved ones suffering from dependency to drugs and/or alcohol, every day is a misery. Rehabilitation, or rehab, can help addicts understand their dependency, learn how to identify and keep away from triggers that lead them to drug use, and learn to live life as an addict in recovery. Michigan Substance Abuse provides a wholesome, sympathetic environment for addicts who wish to begin recovering from drugs and alcohol, and develops individualized rehabilitation plans that address the physical, psychological, social, medical, vocational, and emotional needs of each and every client.
What Does Michigan Substance Abuse Do?
For addicts who don’t realize that their dependency to drugs and/or alcohol is problematic, or who are resistant to treatment, the first step in recovery is often an intervention. At an intervention, the addict’s friends, family members, and loved ones come together as an organized group to confront the addict about their drug or alcohol abuse. They present the addict with examples of how they have harmed themselves or others, and encourage them to enter a rehabilitation program. For an intervention to be successful, Addiction Recovery Center MI recommends an intensive planning process guided by a professional interventionist. It’s extremely important to understand that an intervention is NOT treatment, and by itself, it will not prevent the addict from continuing to use drugs. Interventions are only really effective when followed up immediately by treatment.
Detox is another part of treatment that many – though, not all – addicts need before true rehabilitation can begin. Detox, short for detoxification, is a medically supervised process that is intended to mitigate many of the worst symptoms of withdrawal. Certain medications plus an IV for hydration and nutrition are required for this process. Detox is very necessary for people who are addicted to alcohol, opiates, certain other drugs, because abrupt withdrawal from those substances can actually be fatal without medical supervision. The “cold turkey” method can be an unhealthy and even deadly choice, though a lot of people mistakenly think it’s safe. Additionally, detox is NOT treatment, and it won’t end dependency; it is just intended to help an addict safely withdraw from drugs and/or alcohol.
Rehabilitation Centers Michigan offers healthy, efficient treatment for people at all stages of addiction, from those who have only begun to experience the effects of dependency, to people who have been continually using drugs and/or alcohol for a long time. Their treatment programs include, but aren’t limited to, treatment for alcohol, opiates (heroin, codeine), prescribed drugs (pharmaceuticals, hydrocodone, oxycodone), designer drugs (bath salts, many stimulants), crystal meth, cocaine, hallucinogens, and marijuana. By evaluating the root of addiction, identifying contributing mental components (including co-occurring disorders), and developing the most beneficial treatment plans for each client, Michigan Substance Abuse is able to provide the most powerful, effective treatment program.
