Drug Rehab and Drug Addiction Treatment

Whether you’re living with substance abuse or have been personally touched by the disease of addiction, you likely have a great deal of questions about the recovery process: You may be wondering if you require help from a rehab center, and if so, how to find the right one. You may have concerns about how you will be treated or what you can expect to experience. This page will help answer some of the most common questions about the process of drug rehab and addiction treatment as well as provide information about drugs that are most often abused, the process of detox and recovery from drug addiction, as well as the variety of choices available for those seeking help for addiction.

What Is Drug Rehab and Drug Treatment?

Frequently referred to as “drug rehab”, drug rehabilitation is the process of treatment for drug abuse and dependency. Drug rehab seeks to free affected individuals from the binds of substance abuse when their habits have become uncontrollably compulsive. There are a myriad of drug rehab centers to be found all over the country, each created in an effort to help individuals from all walks of life who are battling their addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.

Commonly Abused Drugs

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the most commonly abused addictive drugs include:

    • Alcohol
    • Amphetamines/ Methamphetamine
    • Anabolic steroids
    • Bath salts
    • Cocaine
    • Hallucinogens
      • MDMA/Ecstasy/”Molly”
      • LSD
      • PCP (phencyclidine)
      • Psilocybin
    • Heroin
    • Inhalants
    • Ketamine, Rohypnol and GHB
    • K2/Spice
    • Marijuana
    • Nicotine
    • Prescription and over-the-counter drugs
    • Opiates and opioids
    • Benzodiazepines
    • Stimulants
    • Depressants
    • Cough syrup

The Drug Rehabilitation Process

Intake counselors, behavioral counselors, and doctors all play vital roles in assessing the needs of the individual patient to determine the best means of treatment. The process of rehabilitation can be broken down into four steps:

  1. Assessment: This begins with the first interaction with an individual seeking treatment. A team comprised of doctors, counselors, therapists and supporting staff creates an individual plan of action. This will continue during intake into the rehabilitation facility to ensure the best possible results.
  2. Detoxification (detox):   Often times, detox is required in order to begin the rehabilitation process. This involves purging the body of any drugs. The detox process does have an inherent risk to it and, as such, should only be performed by a credentialed treatment facility under the direction of a medical professional.
  3. Rehabilitation (rehab):  Detox is simply the beginning of the healing process. Rehabilitation involves utilizing therapy to better understand the underlying issues that initially caused addiction.
  4. Aftercare: This ensures and maintains the positive changes achieved in rehab, including making sure that the skills learned in rehab can be properly applied to everyday life.

Drug Rehab Treatment Programs

Types of Drug Rehab Treatment

Drug treatment programs are always based upon the specific needs of the individual and, if needed, can involve a variety of methods.

  • Residential inpatient treatment is for clients who have completed or are near completion of their detox program. Both medical and non-medical options are available based on a client’s specific needs.
  • Inpatient medical residential treatment involves pharmaceutical therapy and medication management from healthcare professionals to help clients safely work through recovery. Co-occurring disorders (dual-diagnosis) are also discussed and evaluated at this time.
  • Outpatient treatment is available for individuals with a less severe addiction and does not necessitate inpatient treatment. There are no overnight stays in the treatment facility, but clients are expected to visit the facility regularly. This method is ideal for clients who wish to maintain familial and employment responsibilities during their treatment.
  • With non-medical inpatient treatment, it does not involve medication therapy, but still monitors clients through their detox process and transition into rehab, with a reduced level of medical supervision.
  • Partial hospitalization programs involve a full schedule of therapy and drug treatment throughout the day, with the allowance that patients can go home at the end of the day. Depending on the facility, some onsite housing may also be offered.
  • For all patients, aftercare is the final step in the healing process. The goal of aftercare is to help individuals transition back to their regular lives free of addiction issues and to remain in recovery for a lifetime.

Drug treatment programs most commonly include:

  • Drug detox
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) including Contingency Management Addiction Treatment
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Family therapy

Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab Treatment

Addiction comes in many forms and is largely found to involve more than one substance or condition. One of the more common coexisting substance combinations is alcohol and drug addiction. According to The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, more than 23 million people over the age of 12 are faced with a combined addiction to both alcohol and drugs. The individualized programs at Circle of Hope focus on treating addiction to drugs, alcohol or both, in addition to co-occurring mental disorders.

Selecting the Best Drug Treatment Program

Each case of addiction is different and as such, the wisest approach to treatment is to address the specific needs of each individual seeking treatment with the goal of achieving recovery and life in sobriety. Finding the right program for addiction treatment starts with the first interaction, be if over the phone, online, or in person.

Finding a Drug Rehab Facility

The task of finding the right facility for drug rehabilitation may seem like an ordeal, whether seeking treatment solely for drug addiction or along with a co-occurring disorder. Whatever your individual needs, you will find help with Circle of Hope Treatment. Feel free to ask our intake coordinators any questions you may have when you contact us. Knowing what to ask in advance and documenting the answers will prepare you to make the right decision.

Questions to Ask a Drug Treatment Facility

Prior to entering a drug treatment program, there are several questions you will want to ask to ensure that your treatment will be safe as well as effective. These questions include:

    • Does the program meet the licensing requirements of the state?
    • Is the facility staffed by credentialed and educated personnel?
    • What kind of recovery services are offered by the facility?
    • Do the programs include evidence-based therapies for behavior modification and relapse prevention?
    • What are the accommodations like?
    • If medication management is offered, do you provide medications for anti-addiction as well as psychiatric medications?
    • What kind of methods does your facility offer for treating co-occurring disorders?
    • Does the program help its clients transition successfully from one level of care to the next?
    • Do clients receive adequate support in aftercare?

Drug Rehab Statistics

Statistics on drug rehabilitation success statistics are generally hard to obtain. Data does exist, however, to quantify the scope of drug addiction in the United States compared to the number of people who receive treatment. The most recent national drug use report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) states that only 19 percent (4 million) of the 23 million individuals who needed drug or alcohol abuse treatment within a particular year sought it.

Drug Rehabilitation Success

Success Factors

What allows for a successful drug rehabilitation? In a study of individuals who sought treatment for substance abuse, Drug and Alcohol Dependence identified several of the most important factors that contributed to their success:

    • The development of individual self-confidence and competence
    • The acquisition of new coping skills to handle substance abuse triggers
    • Access to recovery resources and support systems, such as 12-step groups
    • Personal support from friends and family members

What About Relapse?

Relapse can and does happen. The reason for this is best stated in the United Nation’s paper Investing in Drug Abuse Treatment:

It is true that not all cases of addiction are chronic and some who meet diagnostic criteria for substance dependence recover completely without treatment. However, many of those who develop addiction disorders suffer multiple relapses following treatments and are thought to retain a continuing vulnerability to relapse for years or perhaps a lifetime.

Length and Type of Drug Rehabilitation Treatment

The same report cites the importance of devoting the right amount time as well as a holistic treatment plan to successfully combatting substance dependence stating:

… for those with severe forms of drug dependence, the best available treatments are:

    • Ongoing, like treatments for other chronic illnesses
    • Able to address the multiple problems that are risks for relapse, such as medical and psychiatric symptoms and social instability
    • Well-integrated into society to permit ready access for monitoring purposes and to forestall relapse.

Treatment Avoidance

A study published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment followed 312 adults who had just enrolled in substance abuse treatment to identify their barriers to recovery and their incentives for getting clean and sober. Misunderstandings and fears about drug treatment were common. Some of the most common obstacles to getting help included:

  • Fear of discomfort or pain during treatment
  • Concerns about confidentiality and privacy
  • Memories of bad treatment experiences in the past
  • Fear of being embarrassed or humiliated in treatment

Many of the participants were afraid to seek drug treatment because they were afraid that their families, friends or employers would find out about their substance abuse problems. Some lacked knowledge of detox and rehab and were afraid of what would happen during treatment. However, motivating factors were also identified, such as the desire for better physical and mental health, the need for job stability, and the desire to build stronger relationships with loved ones.

For the person with the addiction, the prospect of getting treatment can be overwhelming. Even if you know that rehab will bring benefits like improved health, better relationships, a stronger self-image, and a more positive future, the idea of giving up drugs can be frightening. After all, drugs can be a source of temporary energy, emotional support, mental distraction and pleasure. But according to the American Journal of Public Health, substance abuse treatment can decrease your risk of disease, injury and premature death. The journal adds that early intervention and intensive treatment at the beginning of recovery can increase your chances of getting clean and staying that way.

Intervention

When it comes to addiction, some individuals can see the effects of their addiction on themselves and those around them, making them more likely to seek treatment. But for those who can’t clearly see the negative repercussions of their addiction, an intervention is an option worth considering. When conducted with the right goal in mind and with the right participants, an intervention can be a powerful tool for change.

Cost and Payment Options

The cost of drug treatment varies considerably from one facility to another. Community health centers, non-profit or not-for-profit hospitals, and publicly funded rehab facilities provide recovery services at little or no cost. Forbes Magazine estimates that publicly funded drug treatment programs cost an average of approximately $1,500 at the low end, with the costlier specialized programs ranging up to $8,000 or more.

Sliding Scale Payments/Federal/State Funding

Sliding scale payment plans and federal or state funding (such as Medicare) are accepted at these facilities. At the opposite end of the spectrum are private facilities that offer treatment at a much higher rate, ranging from $30,000 to $60,000 and higher. Some of these facilities accept health insurance as payment, while others accept only cash payment in full at the time of admission.

Insurance

Not all drug treatment centers accept insurance, but many do. By the same token, not all health insurance plans fully cover rehab services. Some plans cover only outpatient programs, which are usually less expensive than inpatient or residential care, while others cover a wider range of options. Many insurance plans limit the amount of time they will pay for treatment.

Circle of hope Treatment accepts most major health plans to help you pay for your drug rehabilitation treatment. Please call for verification of benefits coverage, or check with your health insurance carrier for final determination regarding specific covered services.

It’s important to discuss these questions with your insurance provider as well as the intake counselors at the center where you’re seeking admission. An intake counselor or case manager should be available to answer your questions and to find out whether your insurance company will authorize payment for the facility’s services.

  • Going to treatment at circle of hope was one of the best programs Ive participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and over all good natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling , case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate to other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced everyday. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
