What are Some Drug Treatment Options?
Residential treatment is what is most commonly referred to as drug rehab and occurs in a drug addiction treatment facility. In this type of treatment, the recovering addict temporarily stays at the residential treatment facility for a period of several weeks. This allows the recovering addict to focus all of their time and energy on their recovery and keeps them free from temptation to relapse and from distraction.
Outpatient treatment allows a recovering addict to remain at home through the treatment process. In this drug treatment model, a person goes to treatment several times a week (generally between one and three, but occasionally more) but does not reside outside of their home during the course of treatment. However, because the home environment can be distracting and can lead to relapse temptations, people who choose this option should have a strong support system as it can be more difficult.
What Does a Drug Treatment Center Offer?
Sarasota Drug Rehab offers several drug and alcohol treatment options to suit a recovering addict's needs. Medical detox is a treatment that provides recovering addicts with medical treatments and supervision as they eliminate the addictive substance from their system. This helps to ease the severity of withdrawals and make the detox process safer.
Additionally, both individual and group therapies are available at numerous facilities, to help patients determine what caused their addiction in the first place and develop ways to deal with those issues as well as coping strategies for handling temptation to relapse. Other treatments are also available including alternative therapies such as equine, art, dance, and music therapy.
