Process of Overcoming a Drug Addiction

While there are many different methods and treatments for overcoming drug addiction; it is best to go with those with the best track record.  No drug rehab facility can promise 100% success rate but some come very close. Drug addiction overcomes a person physically, mentally and spiritually and that is exactly how the addiction must be overcome.  Referred by many as the “holistic approach”, this method uses natural procedures to rid the body of the drug and also empowers the individual with techniques to help them to get rid of their addiction and to stay off of their addiction.  The mind, body and spirit must all be treated since they are all affected by the drug use.

One of the first things that has to happen is to rid the body of the drug.  There are natural ways of helping the body to do this such as using sauna. At the same time, teaching the addict techniques to regain control over their body and emotions are also used.  Teaching lifelong skills so that they may prevent future addictions is also useful in overcoming a drug addiction.  Empowering the addict with any tool available increases the chances that they will not only get clean of the drug, but stay clean.  It is not so much a band-aid as it is an arsenal for a drug free life.

Overcoming a drug addiction may not always be easy but there are new techniques that make it less stressful and also more expedient getting the toxins out of the body. The more information available to the recovering addict, the better off they will be.  Knowledge is power and knowing as much about ourselves as we can, will prevent future falls of any nature.  So, ridding the body of the drug and other toxins would be a primary goal. Learning about the psychology of addiction would be next along with teaching skills to prevent future relapses. Empowering through spirituality is another successful method used in drug rehab.

Inpatient treatment is always preferred when possible.  Having the help needed 24/7 can mean the difference between success and failure in drug addiction.  How long the stay will be has many determining factors but the optimum is to stay until you feel confident that the treatment has been successful.  This decision will often be made between the addict and the counselor.

    Thanks for the post.

    I liked the line about “The more information available to the recovering addict, the better off they will be.” It is very true, and first things first…getting rid of the toxins so the addict is clear enough to understand what the psychological part of the damage is.
