Tips For Finding A Successful Rehab
Finding the right rehab program can be a challenge. There are so many different philosophies and methods available. How will you know which is right for you? The rehab program that you choose should be able to not only help you make a plan on how to avoid triggers that can lead to relapse, but it should also be equipped to help you address your reasons for drug and alcohol abuse. Rehab programs do not stop with counseling and medical treatment, but also include the opportunity to be involved in traditional 12-step groups and many offer holistic remedies such as acupuncture, yoga and massage.
Prepare to Go – Plan Accordingly
Once you choose a rehab, you’ll get info on what to expect and how to prepare. It is important that you read the information carefully and thoroughly. Go over the packing list of items that are allowed. Don’t pack anything that the center considers “contraband.” Pack entertainment, including books, music and a journal. Some rehab centers allow the use of personal electronics such as laptops, iPods and e-readers. Make sure these items are on the list of acceptable items when you choose a rehab.
Leave It All Behind
On the day to leave home, make sure that you leave worries behind and concentrate on getting better. You are going to rehab to start your recovery. Your loved ones have been encouraging you throughout the decision and they know how important success is…not only to you but to everyone in your life. During this time, just focus on you.
Participate in Your Recovery
Participation in the process adds to your success. Take part in group counseling by asking questions, offer opinions and getting involved. Chances are that someone in your group needs to hear what you have to say or maybe they want to ask the question you asked, but couldn’t find the courage. Be brave! You might just be helping someone along the way. Recovery does not end with rehab, but it is something that you will work on for the rest of your life. Most recovering addicts and alcoholics find that joining a community support group such as AA/NA or another 12-step group helps them stay on the sober path. If the traditional approach does not appeal to you, there are some non-traditional methods such as behavior counseling and holistic therapies.
