Drug addiction ruins the life of the patients and has far reaching social consequences that are not limited to the addict only. Each year the government spends millions of dollars on rehabilitation, recovery and prevention of drug related crimes.
With easing rules regarding different substances and increasing availability of such substances, it is extremely easy for the younger generation to make wrong choices in their life that can have a very devastating impact on their future.
Objectives of drug rehab program:
The main aim of drug rehab centers is to help addicts have a sense of responsibility and awareness about the choices that they make in their daily life. Behavior change is the most common problem associated with drug addiction because of which it becomes difficult for an addict to be accepted as a part of society. In rehab centers the patients are counselled and helped by professionals to regain their former life.
The second most important objective is to help patients deal with the withdrawal effects of drugs. Withdrawal symptoms show when the consumption of drugs is stopped and the body has to re adjust to the change and deal with the cravings of drugs/alcohol. Withdrawal symptoms vary from person to person but mostly include; vomiting, headaches, mood swings, digestive problems, diarrhea, nausea, chronic pains, abnormal drug cravings, breathing problems etc. Rehab centers help patients deal with these effects through exercise, distractions like counseling, gaming, nicotine patches, and medications.
Following this is motivational counseling that helps patients realize how addiction effects and ruins their life and health. With effective counseling patients are motivated towards a goal oriented life.
There are mainly two types of counselling available at drug rehab centers:
- Individual counseling
- Group counseling
The aim of the drug rehab center is to help individuals realize their true potential and find a purpose in life that keeps them motivated and driven to achieve their goals and become a functioning member of society.
