Drug and alcohol addiction both continue to negatively impact our nation. Data shows that getting professional help at a drug and alcohol rehab with evidence-based treatment programs can help those who want to stop drinking or misusing substances to stop. This is true no matter how mild or severe the alcohol or substance use disorder is.
If you’re looking for a drug and alcohol rehab, for yourself or a loved one, Futures Recovery Healthcare offers comprehensive treatment programs for alcohol use disorders (AUD), substance use disorders (SUD), and mental health issues.
For the millions of Americans who are living with an active addiction to either alcohol or drugs, life may seem hopeless. Unable to stop drinking or using a particular substance or substances, day after day can revolve around getting drunk or using a drug. And while there are different degrees of AUD and SUD, no matter if you just suspect you may have an issue or your life has become so unmanageable you know, evidence-based treatment programs can help get you on the road to recovery and a better life.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers and Recovery
Anyone who has struggled with an addiction knows just how difficult it can be to not only stop but to ask for help. Often, there is a lot of shame associated with an AUD or SUD. The nature of the disease drives many to continue use even when there are negative consequences.
From missing family and school obligations to losing jobs and legal issues, addiction can wreak havoc on the lives of both the person with the issue and their loved ones. Relationships are strained, broken and often the alcohol or drug consumption just continues. And despite how it may look to family and friends, the individual with the problem is filled with remorse and shame over their behaviors.
Drug and alcohol rehab centers can help the family and person with the disorder to recover and go on to live happy, purposeful, and peaceful lives. If you think you or a loved one have an issue, take a look at some of the signs of addiction below:
- Plan to only drink or use a certain amount of alcohol or drugs but can’t stick to your limit
- Try to not drink or use on certain days of the week, times of day, or at certain events but being unable to do so
- Continue use of alcohol or other substances despite negative consequences (family, school, work, legal, etc.)
- Have to consume more quantities of alcohol or substance to achieve the same feeling
- Lie about your alcohol or drug use
- Experience withdrawal symptoms when not consuming alcohol or drug for longer than usual
- Give up activities and hobbies to spend more time consuming alcohol or substance
If you relate to any of these, or see them in your loved one, then professional drug and alcohol rehab treatment programs are important to consider. Getting to a treatment center is one of the most important first steps on the road of recovery.
Recovery is possible. Every day thousands of people seek help at a drug and alcohol rehab for both AUD and SUD. And each day thousands of people leave treatment centers free from addiction to alcohol and drugs. You (or your loved one) can too.
What to Look for in an Addiction Treatment Center
When you look for a drug and alcohol rehab be sure to consider a few factors. First, does the facility have experience treating people with an addiction to the same substance that you have an issue with. Second, are there any underlying conditions such as chronic pain, mental health issues, or other types of addiction present? Next, is there a strong aftercare program or alumni support system?
These are all factors you will want to know before you decide on an alcohol and drug rehab center. Be sure to take an honest look at yourself or loved one and assess all possibly relevant factors. If you suspect a mental health disorder such as PTSD or anxiety, be sure the treatment centers you review have programs for those with co-occurring disorders.
It’s also important for a drug and alcohol rehab to provide exposure to support programs that will be available to you, your loved one, and family members once clinical treatment is completed. Futures offers multiple pathways for recovery from 12 step programs to SMART Recovery and more.
