Residential Treatment

In treatment of drug dependence, rehabilitation is a process of reinstating the things the individual has lost as a result of drug dependence. It is a process for the drug dependent individual to overcome physical-psychological damages and family-social alienation and reintegrate into the drugs-free healthy mainstream life. The first step in this process is motivating the individual to take treatment. Then the person is enrolled for detoxification. After detoxification, the key activities are providing education on dependence, training on craving management, skills and techniques of relapse prevention as well as offering training and therapies to resolve the behavioral and psychological problems the individual suffers from. In the rehabilitation method, the individual gets help to understand the entire process of one’s drug dependence. In addition, it is shown to the individual why one has been continuing with abusing drugs. One is also made aware of the situations that trigger drug abuse and provided with education and skills to prevent relapse. In this process the individual develops a habit of a harmonious life using a balanced mixture of work, carrying out responsibilities, recreation/sports and relaxation and thus safeguards oneself from the craving for drugs. In this treatment which is longer than medical detoxification, individual takes responsibility of one’s own recovery.

In fact, residential treatment centers like CREA provide a multidisciplinary approach to recovery from substance abuse. Comprehensive treatment services offer a structured treatment environment that begins with the withdrawal/detoxification process and extends through aftercare planning following residential treatment.
