At US Addiction Centers we understand that you are nervous about what to expect when you enter one of our facilities. The first thing we would like for you to know is that we are here for you. Our purpose is to help addicts reclaim their lives. Each facet of our program is designed specifically to help our patients take an active role in their victory over addiction. Our graduates go back into the world empowered, confident, and motivated to succeed.
Before you come to one of our facilities, you need to know what to bring with you. You’ve probably heard differing stories about what is allowed in rehab and what is not. The following packing list will make this process much less confusing for you:
Most addicts fear detox because of they’ve heard frightening stories about the discomfort of withdrawals. Although each person reacts to detox differently, we have the expertise to ensure that the process is as safe and comfortable as possible for our patients. A big part of the fear surrounding detox has to do with misinformation and lack of education about the process. You can learn more about our detox program by visiting the websites for each of our facilities.
Here is a brief breakdown of the detox procedure:
Intake: Each patient is evaluated to determine exactly which toxins need to be eliminated.
Write up: In this step, you will talk with a counselor to help determine an approach to treatment that will work best for your needs.
Detoxification: While your body is being cleansed of the toxins, you can participate in massage therapy, acupuncture, physical therapy, whirlpool, nutritious diet, outdoor activities and many more.
Moving on to Rehab: Completing detox is just the first step in your recovery. Once it is complete, you are ready to enter the next phase of treatment, rehab.
Detox helps you overcome the physical aspect of addiction. But, you also need to heal the emotional aspects of the addiction. Without rehab, you will possibly relapse within a few weeks. But, in rehab, you gain the skills needed to avoid relapse while also giving you the confidence and education to resume life in the outside world. Leaving the security of our facility can be a scary prospect for some of our clients. That is why we offer such a comprehensive program. We want to be sure each of our patients has gained an improved self-image and the motivation to remain drug-free for a lifetime. Read below to find out what to expect in rehab.
