Drug rehab helps patients overcome a drug addiction through detox, which breaks the physical addiction, and treatment, which addresses the complex psychological issues underlying a substance addiction.
Drug treatment centers offer a range of treatment programs and methodologies for treating both mental and physical addiction. To find out more about searching for the right rehab center, call Alcohol Treatment Centers Arlington at 817-533-2441.
Many drug treatment centers offer both inpatient and outpatient drug addiction treatment.
Inpatient drug treatment centers offer respite from the daily stresses and triggers that can result in relapse very quickly. Patients are closely monitored by a team of compassionate medical and mental health professionals and receive support from other patients in all stages of rehab. Inpatient treatment is essential for those with a co-occurring mental illness or a long history of drug abuse and addiction.
Outpatient drug treatment centers provide the opportunity for the patient to continue working and meeting other obligations during treatment, and they offer more privacy since the patient remains living at home. Outpatient treatment can be successful as long as the patient has the motivation to recover and plenty of support at home and in the community.
A mental health professional can help you decide whether inpatient or outpatient drug treatment would be best for you or a loved one.
Anyone with a drug addiction or a history of intense drug abuse should seek treatment through an inpatient or outpatient rehab center. Some of the indicators that you or someone you love may need drug treatment include:
For those who are in denial about their addiction or ambivalent toward recovering from an addiction, a drug intervention may help encourage them to seek treatment.
A drug intervention is staged by concerned loved ones who meet with the person with the addiction and tells the person how the addiction has personally affected them. The person is given the opportunity to seek treatment. Interventions that are organized and facilitated by a professional interventionist have a 90 percent success rate in getting the loved one to agree to treatment.
Drug treatment centers in Arlington treat addictions to both illegal drugs and legal drugs.
Illegal drug addiction includes a physical dependence to street drugs like cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, and heroin.
Prescription drug addiction is a physical dependence on prescription medications, which include opiate painkillers like OxyContin, Fentanyl, and Vicodin; stimulants like Adderall, Dexedrine, and Ritalin; and sedatives like Xanax, Valium, and Klonopin.
