Rehabilitation is the main part of the recovery.
Let’s look at what rehabilitation means.
Rehabilitation: restore to health or normal life by training and therapy after imprisonment, addiction, or illness. Oxford Dictionary
When selecting addiction rehabilitation, you must make sure that the intention is attained. That it will restore the individual to a former condition. The individual will once again be in that condition of living life without and drugs, alcohol and/or medication. People use drugs and/or alcohol to eliminate physical or emotional pain. As an example, if a person is anxious to partake in communication, one might drink alcohol to initiate expressing his thoughts and feelings (even if it doesn’t make total sense). Hence every time he feels anxious he will use alcohol as a solution to what he thinks is functioning better within society. This is an example how an addiction cycle begins and where it can swivel out of control. Drugs and/or alcohol are used because there is an inability to deal with some aspect in life. Rather, than having the person “live with his problem,” helping the person handle his unfitness, thus improves his abilities in life which is the ultimate goal.
Drug rehabilitation centres through the years have taken away from the real meaning of rehabilitating an addict. Many various types of methods of treatment commenced then lost the real meaning of what rehabilitation is about. Unfortunately they are more set on getting the person to live with the problem then discarding it. One needs to be certain that the rehabilitation program covers the problem from the source and the individual rises on top. This will get the individuals real life back.
