Many people throughout the world struggle with substance abuse. Some addicts may decide to quit on their own. Unfortunately, the rate of relapse is very high for people that quit and do not receive any type of outside help. The most successful recovery includes professional help. Once the problem with drugs or alcohol is acknowledged, treatment can begin. The American Medical Association (AMA) considers substance and alcohol abuse to be diseases, and like other medical problems, they require specialized attention. Rehab provides this specialized treatment. It is an important step on the road to lasting recovery from drug and/or alcohol abuse.

The objective of rehab is to eliminate drugs or alcohol from the patient's body and provide them with information on healthy behaviors to achieve long-term control over the addiction and abstinence from the addictive substance(s). There are many recovery centers that utilize different methods to help speed recovery from various substances, from drugs to alcohol to magic mushrooms. For specific details, and to speak with a recovery specialist, please call 1+(800) 548-8880 toll free.

There are different types of rehab. Short term rehab lasts less than six months. It may include medication therapy, residential therapy, support groups, or counseling. Long term therapy lasts longer than six months but includes the same elements. Outpatient therapy does not require the patient to live in the treatment center. Inpatient rehabilitation does require the patient to reside in the shelter, and provides constant support with a very structured environment. Different types or combinations of types of treatment work better for different people. Generally, the more treatment given and the longer the program, the better and longer-lasting the results will be.

Due to the progressive nature of drug and alcohol addiction, detox and rehab are best started as soon as possible.
