What is Drug Treatment?

Drug treatment is a set of therapies, strategies, and techniques that are grouped and sequenced together to help a person suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction to address and treat their disease. In other words, drug treatment is designed to get a person sober and to help them stay sober. And, drug treatment is also set up in a way that it can address both the physical and mental aspects of addiction.

Any person who has developed an unhealthy or excessive relationship with drugs or alcohol is in need of drug treatment. This means that any person who misuses or overuses (or both) drugs or alcohol is in need of professional treatment and assistance to effectively manage this condition.

What are Some Drug Treatment Options?

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment is an option that most people refer to as drug or alcohol rehab. In such treatment programs, a recovering addict will temporarily reside in the treatment center for a week or several and undergo intensive, structured addiction recovery treatment. This means that they will go through treatment without interruption and without outside distractions. They will also not be able to relapse while going through treatment.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is an option in which recovering addicts are able to remain at home and continue going to work or school (if applicable) while undergoing drug or alcohol treatments. They will attend treatment several times a week (usually around three) and will continue to do so for several months to complete all of the necessary treatments. The problem in this type of treatment involves the possibility of getting distracted and not completing or attending treatment as well as the potential for relapse during the treatment process.

Medical Detox

Medical detoxification involves helping a person get the addictive drug out of their system and deal with the withdrawal symptoms that will inevitably arise. The medical supervision ensures that any serious symptoms are addressed and can help to make the detox process gradual (therefore less uncomfortable).

Individual/Group Therapy

Individual and group therapies are designed to help recovering addicts in figuring out the reasons they began abusing drugs and/or alcohol in the first place. By understanding why a person abuses drugs or alcohol as well as the behaviors associates with substance abuse, a recovering addict can truly begin to heal. They also learn how to cope with triggers and drug or alcohol temptations they will face on a regular basis following treatment.
